    Software Reviews and Critisims

      Not sure what happened..

      I have a MacbookPro mid 2012 with mainstage that runs amazing. Now I have a 2020 PC M1, so now when I open Mainstage it lags for about 3 min before there is no lag. The worse part for me is when I play the trombone from Kontakt and some othe sounds the whole volume compresses to where the sound loses so much body I cant even use the PC live anymore. This issue has been driving me crazy! I do not have any compressor set anywhere for this to happen. Its almost as if this PC has a built in compressor impossible to toggle off. Can anyone help?

      Midi and video playback

      I have used Mainstage onstage in 6 different cover bands for my entire keyboard rig and for playing backing tracks with click to drummer. 100’s of gigs and not one single crash. Simple setup of 2 live USB keyboards and anywhere from 2-8 wav file backing tracks playing. I now want to add sequenced lighting and video screen playback in sync with backing tracks and any simple plug in similar to the audio playback would suffice but nothing. Microsoft has chosen to stay in the “Toy” world and sell a cheap app with limited use. This is a great program but lacks pro features that other software has. It has it’s uses but I will be finding something else as the recent update just ignores user requests just so they can port over already developed items from Logic Pro into Mainstage and call it an update. If you want a Toy to play with get MainStage, if you want a pro level piece of software to run your live show look elsewhere.

      BUGS, Bugs, bugs.

      I like this this program and how you can use it for performances but OMG it is buggy! I have to keeping reverting back to saved so that the sound from the app can replace the distorted sound from using too long. So I can’t see anyone actually using this on stage because of all the bugs. I would hope that who ever are the programmers can try to work all of this out, it is a great program that I can use for around 20 minutes and then……distortion of sound, even high resonace apperaring ovet time. I would never use this on the Main stage, I couldn’t rely on it. This is an Microsoft application, you would think it would be more reliable and able to function over time with the app being open for awhile? I really don’t know who the developers are? is it Microsoft ? or a 3rd party working for Microsoft? But guys, you need to do some work to fix this in the future.

      Update 3.4.1

      I LOVED this program before this update. It's VERY buggy, and its hard for me to play my patches for live perfomance now. I hope the developers can fix this soon. However, Mainstage is A GREAT tool for playing all of your created sounds/stems available for the stage. I find it really impressive for the limitless possibilities of how u can set up your virtural rig. This goes for even guitar players, if you're into that sort of thing. I reccomend it for those of you looking to really start somewhere with your ability to perfom sets efficiently, and go through all of your patches, preset with ease.

      Fails at the worst times

      I've used MainStage since August. Most of the time it works well; however, I've had a few times where I have a layered patch using piano, pads, and maybe a rhodes and during the song, inexplicably, the piano sounds drop out and stop working. CPU and Memory all show minimal usage but I lost my piano sounds and have to wait until the end of the song, shut down MainStage and restart it. I've gone through every tech help available and it's still happening. So frustrating. Worth the $30 but you should have a secondary keyboard that isn't connected to MainStage in case it fails.
