The new BeatBuddy MINI 2 doubles the versatility of the original with 200+ songs, higher quality sound, and a new ergonomic button top designed for jamming in socks.

Singular Sound just unveiled a new version of the much loved BeatBuddy MINI, improving several aspects of the affordable personal drummer in a pedal. The most visible change is the addition of a new button designed specifically for comfort when playing barefoot or in socks. This button design was first introduced on Singular Sound’s Footswitch+ which is heralded by musicians as the world’s most comfortable 2 button footswitch.

But the changes aren’t just to the drummer pedal’s physical design. Sound quality has been increased over the first generation of BeatBuddy MINI drum machine. Alongside the sound quality increase, there is double the content in the BeatBuddy MINI 2 as there was in the original BeatBuddy MINI. This allows for even more versatility when using the pedal for practice and jamming out, which will help musicians improvise and try new musical styles.

Speaking of musical styles, Singular Sound has also launched its new song matching tool, which will help musicians find the perfect drums to accompany their favorite tunes. With the BeatBuddy MINI 2’s 200+ songs, the new song matching tool will certainly come in handy!

The BeatBuddy MINI 2 is on sale now for $149, while the remaining stock of BeatBuddy MINIs (now called the BeatBuddy MINI Classic) are selling for $99. More information on the BeatBuddy MINI 2 is available on the Singular Sound website.

This is just the first in a number of exciting product developments coming out of Singular Sound. Anthony Sostre, the Marketing Director at Singular Sound, was spotted saying the following on the BeatBuddy User Forum:

"I’m not allowed to take any pictures in David’s office right now haha. We have a few prototypes in there that are in the various stages of development… …All I can say is that Singular Sound is about to hit its stride. So keep an ear out."

BeatBuddy vs BeatBuddy MINI 2

Thanks to its studio quality 24 bit sound, MIDI sync capabilities, and ability to load up to 3.2 million custom songs, the BeatBuddy is the go to drum machine for artists performing live and in recording sessions.

The BeatBuddy MINI on the other hand, has revolutionized the way musicians practice, serving as a more capable and efficient alternative to the metronome. Its ability to help musicians improve their rhythm has led to its use by schools like Berklee College, The Frost School of Music, and School of Rock. The MINI 2 improves upon this and will further help to create engaging practice.
