MainStage 2, Apple’s dedicated software application for taking your Mac to the stage with a full-screen live interface, has been updated with a trio of fixes that are sure to enhance your performance.
Delivering awesome hardware control and a massive collection of plug-ins and sounds, MainStage 2 is deemed the ultimate live rig.
MainStage lets you connect your own hardware and use it to play and control your plug-ins. You can employ pretty much any USB and MIDI-equipped controller, such as keyboards, foot pedals, and drum pads, and quickly assign hardware knobs, buttons, and faders to onscreen controls.
It brings 120 instrument and effect plug-ins, the ability to bring your studio sound to the stage by importing settings from Logic Pro and GarageBand, combinations of instruments and live audio (such as keyboard and vocals) in a single patch, and tons more features.
The tool is even better now with version 2.2.2 on the scene – an update that “addresses overall stability and performance issues,” according to the computer giant headquartered at 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, California.
First off, MainStage 2.2.2 addresses a stability issue that could cause the software to quit unexpectedly on the latest version of Lion - OS X 10.7.4.
Second, the update patches an issue that prevented the I/O plug-in from outputting audio. And, third, MainStage 2.2.2 resolves an error related to the download and installation of basic and additional content.
System requirements include 2GB of RAM (4GB recommended), a display with 1280-by-768 resolution or higher, a minimum 6GB of disk space (19GB of optional content available via in-app download), and Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) or later.
Thanks to the embedded automatic device recognition, MainStage can help you instantly set up a large variety of hardware.
