Project Description

Brioconcept has developed the first guitar pedal drum machine. It plugs right in with your other pedals to play a drum beat through your amp. No mixer required! Hands free functionality: Add fills, transition from verse to chorus, add ‘one off’ accent hits (such as cymbal crashes or hand claps) all with a press of a pedal. Pre-loaded with 8 unique drum sets, and up to 1000 songs (verse/chorus beat progressions) in each of 8 musical styles. Beautiful and strong construction made from anodized aluminum that is built to last and withstand tough live performanbeatbuddyce environments.

  • Electronic circuit design
  • Microcontroller and DSP
  • Bare metal firmware programmed in C
  • Graphic user interface control application

The graphic user interface allows the musician to create and customize each songs to suit his need. When the songs are to his liking he simply download them in the pedal and is ready to perform. This user interface was coded in C++ and takes advantage of Qt’s framework.
