Import a PBF File using the BBMO

Posted by Groove Monkee on

In this post I'll explain how to import a PBF file using the online version of the BeatBuddy Manager. Please be aware that the desktop version of the BeatBuddy Manager is discontinued.

Note: Currently, the online version requires Chrome, Edge or Arc. 

Find the PBF File

If you purchased a BeatBuddy compatible MIDI pack from us, here's how you can find the PBF file:

  1. Open the "Other MIDI Mappings" folder of your download
  2. Open the folder that ends with "BB" 
  3. You'll find the PBF file(s) inside the folder with "PBF" at the end.

Mega Pack Users

  1. Open the "Other MIDI Mappings" folder of your download
  2. Extract the zip file named "Mega Pack BB" 
  3. The PBF files are stored in the folder named "PBF Files"

Setting Up Your Project

Important: Before you can use the Beat Buddy Manager, you MUST set up a project.

See "Setting Up for the First Time" in the BeatBuddy Manager Online Manual. Once you have a project, you can install a PBF file using the instructions below.

Note: You can access the manual from the support page of Singular Sound's website. Please see the links below.

Installing a PBF file is easy. It only takes a few clicks!

Click on "Import Song" in the upper right side of the Online BeatBuddy Manager. Please see the image below.

Select the PBF file and click "Open". This will add the PBF file to your project.

Next, save your project by clicking the "Save Project" button (upper right side).

If you're ready, you can now sync the project to your BeatBuddy's SD card.
