Wonderful. I'm looking forward to Mainstage 2 for Guitar Players.
Thank You!!! 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!
