Re: Mainstage 3.5 crashes on new Macbook Pro M1(Big Sur)

As per what Atlas007 has said: it seems to me the issue is that IK hasn't updated their product for the M1 chip, and that's not Apple's problem. And based on my experiences with IK, I wouldn't hold your breath on them fixing this problem quickly.

Re: Mainstage 3 Latency despite no plugs causing latency

Hmm, the Apollo Thunderbolt should have VERY low latency….that’s weird and I’m a bit stumped as to why you’re experiencing 10-20ms latency. I have a MBP 16” and even if I use the onboard audio, my latency is 9.9ms Roundtrip and 5.0ms Output at 64 samples, 44.1kHz (no safety buffer)….and half of thos...

Re: Mainstage 3 Latency despite no plugs causing latency

What audio interface are you using? High latency is often the result of poor-quality interface drivers. I’d also recommend unchecking the safety buffer setting unless you really need it. The buffer introduces latency and really isn’t that effective unless your machine is struggling with the load. Al...

Re: Mainstage/footpedal to advance patches

Have you tried using a Bluetooth page turn pedal (e.g. IK BlueBoard) and configured both the pedal and MainStage so the pedal does what you want? That’d be my advice.

Re: Recording dropouts with 3.5 (maybe plus Catalina)? Topic is solved

There are some great improvements in 3.5.2 (including CPU cycles being released a LOT sooner when switching between patches/different plugins) BUT I had a full machine lockup caused by MainStage in my first gig using 3.5.2. I’d spent about a week testing it upon release and felt comfortable using it...

Just out of curiosity, does this work on 3.5.1? (You can run both versions on your machine)

Re: internal soft synth volume in relation to slider volume

I agree with fuzzfilth. And I’d be surprised if there’s not at least some degree of distortion/clipping - however minor - if your synth output is so hot going into the channel strip. And clipping CAN affect CPU, so make sure the channel input is within reasonable limits.

Re: Patch changes from Qwerty Keypad??-appreciate any help!

I know this won’t be an option for most people but I’ve used the MIDI Designer app on my iPad Pro to create a whole bunch of touch buttons for patch selection, in addition to other buttons/knobs/faders etc for the functions I most frequently need to adjust e.g. channel levels, EQ/FX settings, mutes ...

Re: Send MIDI from MainStage when selecting a patch Topic is solved

Why don’t you reverse the scenario? i.e. when you select a lead sheet on your iOS device, your iOS app sends a MIDI command to change the MainStage patch? I’ve been doing this for years using ForScore/OnSong/iGigBook on my iPad; those apps simply send a MIDI program change to MainStage which changes...

Not unless you want to find a cracked copy. Do you have a backup of your system or versions of MainStage?

In moving forward, I strongly recommend that you back up each MainStage update on an external drive.

Re: Any reason why selecting "ALL" for MIDI hardware input assignments can't be bi-directional?

Gacki, thanks so much for replying. There are definitely times when I’d love to have multiple devices with bidirectional comms but the more pressing issue is what you’ve mentioned i.e. moving devices associated with screen controls. I’d be really appreciative if you come up with a solution that does...

Re: MS and Number of Cores configured for use in Audio\Advanced Settings

I’m a bit surprised that no one has replied. Is everyone just using the default max number of cores? I reduced the number of cores used by MainStage and found that my CPU usage went down a bit.
