Display or Find Entire Duration of Set?

Wed Oct 20, 2021 11:50 am

Hello!

Been looking around and can't seem to find an answer to this: is it possible to display or find the entire duration of a Set in Mainstage Pro? (ie, "SET A TOTAL TIME: 1hr, 35min, 15 seconds"). I'm trying to time out a set to make sure it's the proper duration and wanted to see if Mainstage has this offered anywhere

Thank you!

I’m not sure that I understand your question.

Are you using a backing track for each patch, and each patch = 1 song? Is this how you’re using MainStage?

Yes, they are backing tracks. I mainly use Mainstage for playback of backing tracks with live accompaniment--was looking to see if there was a way to see the duration of each "Set".

Ok. No, there’s no way to do what you’re asking

Don't know if this helps, but if you use the Playback plugin for your backing tracks, you could create a text object and assign the plugin's parameter "Time To End" (as bars and beats or as hh:mm:ss) to it.

In Layout View create a Parameter Text object.

In Edit View create a new Instrument Channel and insert a Playback plugin. Click the Parameter Text object and map it in the Screen Control Inspector as shown in the screen shot.
