Excellent tutorial. It covers MainStage from a practical point of view as opposed to being a video data sheet. The content is a bit dated, but it is still relevant for MainStage 3.

Great info, now I can add it to my live performance. Please so more contrast and compare of the type of things you can perform with vocals in your next update.

This course was perfect for helping me to get going for a gig that I had when my SPDS crashed on me. Just need to know a little bit about MIDI. Great job MPV!!!!

Great introduction to MainStage 2, I liked the way Darren explains the basics. I recommend it if you are beginning to use MainStage.

Very good tutorial overall!!! I did the MainStage 101 tutorials first so alot of these were review for me. Nonetheless, the topics covered were good to go over again.

Very informative, and it was easy to follow along. I knew very little about Midi when I first got Mainstage 1... and like so many others, it was a struggle either on my computer, or my patience when it first came out. With these new videos coming out following the 2.2 updates, I have a newfound confidence in using Mainstage 2.2 as my "go-to" Live Performance application. I'm currently running Mainstage 2.2 on a 2008 black Macbook with 4gb ram, and a 500gb/7200rpm HD. I record using Logic Pro 9 and perform on a weekly basis, and since upgrading to the 2.2 version via iTunes store, I've had almost no problems. My laptop does run a little hot, when i'm pushing it to the limits. I run a cooling fan 99% of the time beneath my laptop, and that keeps me nearly problem free in a live performance environment. Thanks to this tutorial, I am confident AND excited to include Loopback/Playback in some of my future projects... along with using multiple controllers!
