Peterson BBS-1 BodyBeat Sync Advanced Metronome
The Peterson BodyBeat Sync represents the ultimate in musical tempo reference devices. As a fully featured metronome, it is capable of transmitting the beat by visual, aural and tactile means. Wireless functionality allows two or more BodyBeat Syncs to work in synchronicity with one another, allowing the networking of multiple units on stage, in the recording studio, band room or anywhere the precise synchronization of a performance and its performers is required.
The BodyBeat Sync can store up to 100 user presets consisting of tempo, meter, subdivision and accent pattern. All preset information is transmitted to each synchronized unit as well as the current bar count of the active preset. If the 100 user presets do not provide enough versatility, the “tempo map” from an entire musical score can be stored in the BodyBeat Sync via the mini USB cable. A standard MIDI file can be used or a custom “tempo map” can be designed via the free application on the BodyBeat Sync website.
Additionally, the BodyBeat Sync can be driven by a DAW using MIDI Clock via the mini USB cable.
The mini USB connection is not only used to charge the BodyBeat Sync, but provides a means for always keeping the unit’s firmware current. You will never need another metronome!
