OVERVIEW

A metronome and tuner with wireless connectivity that allows a group of performers with a BBS-1 to feel or hear the same beat simultaneously.

The BBS-1 BodyBeat Sync builds on the silent pulsing metronome concept by allowing an unlimited number of performers”each equipped with a BBS-1”to synchronously feel or hear the same beat it through wireless connectivity. FCC approved, the BBS-1 transmits outside of standard wireless audio range so multiple groups can perform in the same area with no interference from one group to another.

Program tempos into the Peterson metronome's intuitive user interface and recall them as presets. You can also program them from a scoring program that's complete with complex changes and the BodyBeat Sync will store your tempo map in its memory.

You can either rehearse with it audibly or perform with it silently.

Peterson Electro-Musical Products introduced the first new approach in metronome technology in decades with the original BB-1 BodyBeat pulsating metronome. This wireless metronome is now used worldwide by music students and professionals alike.

pulse bypasses headphones, No wall charger... usb only.

By Patrick McKenna Patrick McKenna

from Montana

Comments about Peterson BodyBeat Sync BBS-1 - Wireless Pulsating Metronome:

The only thing that really bugs me is that the pulsating output bypasses the headphone output. Sometimes the clip moves around and I lose contact with pulse generator. It would be nice to have both so that in certain positions, when the pulse is not contacting my body as much as necessary, I could still have 2 points of reference. Other than that this things is a trip! The pulse is especially useful for practice sessions where the practice pad would disappear in the audio click of my Dr. beat when I'm right on the beat. oh yeah but not coming with a wall charging adapter is also kind of sucky. what is with that Peterson?

    Comments about Peterson BodyBeat Sync BBS-1 - Wireless Pulsating Metronome:

    The ability to save the tempos I use at shows is very nice. I like being able to quickly get to the tempo of the next song.

    I bought this mainly for the vibe clip though. I was very into the idea of not needing to wear headphones while drumming. We use time sensitive samples that require a click. The vibe clip, unfortunately, is useless for a live drummer. When this arrived I used the clip at home and played guitar along with it. Seemed to work, but I noticed I could HEAR the vibe clip vibrating. However, at my practice space my drums drown out the sound of the vibration and the "feeling" is very faint and just doesn't work as a metronome. It was a great idea, but just doesn't work. Back to headphones for me.

    Using the vibe clip to avoid noise in a studio most likely won't work. The vibration is loud enough for a condenser mic to pick up.

    Comments about Peterson BodyBeat Sync BBS-1 - Wireless Pulsating Metronome:

    My daughter likes the tuner a lot and she seems to practice a little bit longer than usual. Hopefully, this gadget will help improve her skills and abilities and propel her into the next level as a soloist.
    My daughter really likes the tuner that came with the metronome. She indicated that she liked that feature in the new gadget since the app from her Ipod Touch only provided the beats.
    Such a compact product with a lot of features. The quality seems to be superb and we hope to keep using the metronome for many more years into the future.
    Price was a little high; however, with all the additional features that came with this gadget, it seems to be worth the cost of the item.

        poor build quality. the nut was not secured to the clip and it couldn't be screwed to the case. and worst of all there was a terrible hiss (sounded burnt or shorted) in headphone mode, that was just too loud to endure... i was temped by the features but they need to go back to work on this one. also the outdated usb port is silly.
