The BeatBuddy is a digital drum machine manufactured by the Miami-based brand Singular Sound. It was first engineered and manufactured in 2014, after crowdfunding via Indiegogo, as a foot-controlled alternative to traditional tabletop, 'hands-on' drum machines (as the Roland TR-909 or the Roger Linn's LinnDrum). The BeatBuddy is housed in the form of a stompbox unit, to give musicians (like guitar, bass and keyboard players, among others) a 'hands-free' operation of the device while they are performing an instrument with their hands.

The BeatBuddy is designed to be used in live performances, with the user determining when different sections of the song (such as the verse, chorus, and solo section) will start, and having the flexibility to extend or delay the sections, or pause the beat. Like other stompbox pedals, it can be controlled by foot presses on the pedal; the BeatBuddy recognizes single taps, holding down the pedal, releasing it, and double-pressing. It uses samples of non-quantized drum playing; unlike many other drum machines, which use synthesized drum sounds, the BeatBuddy's samples were recorded by a professional drummer in a studio.

Since its release in 2014, the BeatBuddy has garnered positive reviews from magazines like Guitar Player[1],Guitar World[2] and Sound On Sound,[3] and won the Best in Show award at the 2015 NAMM Show.[4]
