... and I have no clue what i am doing. I normally just plug my mic and guitar into an amp and perform that way. If I want to do a gig online and play on say Facebook live, I just plug my amp output into an adapter that goes into the Mac Mini USB. I was thinking it would be cool to not use the amp and plug into the Mac Mini but I am thinking I would probably need a usb mixer right? I would plug mics and guitar into the mixer and then the mixer into the Mac and then from there, Mainstage could be used to apply different effects and volume levels and such onto vocal and guitar separately. Is that something that CAN be done?
I have tried googling around and I see a lot of setups using keyboards and Logic and a lot of talk of patches and whatnot... I have no clue how any of that works. I do a simple one vocal and acoustic guitar setup. I have tried to plug in a mic to my MacMini and opened Mainstage but it seems to have a lot of latency. I say something and then the sound comes through a millisecond later. Obviously not ideal when I am trying to perform and sing and listen to what it sounds like.
I am for sure CLUELESS about how to get started with this app. It seems like it would be pretty cool though. Any links to good starting tutorials or if anyone can give some info on how I could accomplish what i am trying to do above would be great. Thanks!
