Just recently I thought Id add a macbook to my setup to expand on my sounds for my covers band.
Ive used mainstage 2 before in the past but not with the Montage. I did try using the guide to Mainstage from this site but it didnt seem specific for my setup.
Firstly I want to continue to use my performances I already have then just trigger extra sounds in Mainstag for certain songs. So I start my adding a few patches to mainstage.
I can play the instruments without any issues on channel 1 or other channels if I want to. I do not want to use the "single midi channel" setup as want to still be able to use all my current multi channel performances. I have no trouble setting the other channels to nothing in mainstage.
My main issue is program changes. When I try to set the program changes up in the performance on channel 1 it changes the patch in the montage. When I set local control of then I lose my on board Montage sounds.
To put it simply I want to only send program changes to mainstage, not to that montage channel. So when I change performances on the montage it tells mainstage to change patches, this would be a pretty common setup I would think.
Can someone help me?
