Re: MIDI help. Does this exist?

Arrived today US Postal Service. Did exactly what I wanted it to do right out of the box. Using a BOSS FS-6 to patch up/down. Now will configure it to use my sustain and expression pedals for consolidation purposes. The pre programmed CC's and Channels need to be changed.

Thanks. Will do. As my rig gets more involved it will be nice to have one USB plugin for 4 devices

Re: MIDI help. Does this exist?

This works great! http://www.audiofront.net/MIDIExpression.php Just wanted to say that based on this post, I checked out and bought a MIDIExpression Quattro the other day. It'll take a while to get to me given that I'm in Australia, but I'm super keen to get it. Thanks Billunatic!! Hey Maddcow, is ...

Instruments sounds change randomly

I have started using the SampleTank Grand Piano 1 Eco and it sounds great and is CPU friendly. Every so often the sound of the piano changes to a boxy sound. I re select the instrument from SampleTank in the original patch and it reloads and all is well. I am using this instrument in a large concert...

Re: MIDI help. Does this exist?

No need to answer my last question. For what it does I just went ahead and ordered one. Think I'll be happy with it.

MIDI help. Does this exist?

I would like to use more footswitches than my MPK61 will allow. Is there any way to expand the number of footswitches available for MIDI use? Specifically i have an FS-6 switch that I want to use for Patch Prev/Next. I can use one TS 1/4" for each switch or single TRS for both switches. Tip for...

Re: Button Color Lit at Start of Patch

I have buttons on a Controller I use to Mute an instrument. When I select the patch and the instrument is muted the buttons on my layout is lit. When I unmute it the light goes out. I have the button set to "Single Value". After I had it set where the button was lit and the channel was mut...

Re: Setup advice for cover band

Michael, thank you for a very thoughtful and helpful reply. I have to re-read the part about the patch busses but it all makes sense.

Setup advice for cover band

Hi all. I have a few rehearsals under my belt using MainStage and see I need to have a better plan for my live setup. I was hoping for advice on the following. I will be making a Set for each song and a Patch for each sound or change in needed instruments for each song part. Some songs may have just...

Re: Can't find sounds

I searched my drive for "clap" and found some that worked perfect. Ended up being in Sampler Instruments<Drum Kit Designer<Drum Kit Designer Claps. Assigned it to a pad at concert level and I now have claps in any set/patch as planned.

Thanks again for helping out a new guy

Re: Can't find sounds

Thanks Mike and Eric. I found the Irish fiddle but I could have sworn there was one that was call "Fiddle" and it sounded a bit different. I will try and edit the Irish one to my liking. I have opened a bunch of drum kits looking for the hand claps and just can't find any that have them. I...

Can't find sounds

Saw a nice fiddle sound and hand claps once but can't find them now. Anyone know where in Logic they might be?

Thanks

Re: Memory used by MainStage compared to total RAM

The latest renditions of OS X utilise RAM more aggressively making it perfectly normal, specially since you "only" have 8 Gb of RAM. Thanks Eric. So are you saying that as long as the "Memory used by MainStage" and CPU usage stays low it should perform OK? Also I have read about...

Memory used by MainStage compared to total RAM

I am new to MainStage and getting my self setup to play live. In the one concert I have setup the CPU usage is low and RAM is at 93% with only 10-14% being used by MainStage. All apps are closed when I check this. I have read about using a separate User for playing live but where do I find out what ...
