Performing live as a keyboard player is a big deal: you might be asked to play live parts as well as triggering loops & beats. And you have to make sure everyone stays in sync to avoid those sonic train wrecks!

Apple's MainStage was designed with the live performing musician in mind. It enables you organize your patches and tracks, and give you full control of your sounds and FX during performance. MainStage expert Darren Burgos is your guide in this detailed look at this one-of-a-kind program.  Here you'll learn everything from creating complex patches made up of multiple instruments and FX, to incorporating and triggering complex backing tracks. You’ll also learn how to quickly deploy all of your MIDI controllers and hardware instruments right in MainStage. He even shows you MainStage's unique relationship with Logic Pro and how those two programs can easily share files and settings with each other!

Whether you're a one-man band or playing stadiums all around the world, you'll see how flexible MainStage can be and how quickly you can make it the electronic brain (and heart) of your live performance keyboard rig no matter how big or small your band is!

So sit back and let live performance expert Darren Burgos help you get your show onto the MainStage. And don't forget to check out all of our other courses in the world’s largest library of MainStage and Logic courses!
