Using technology with your keyboard doesn’t have to take a lot of time. In this video, I demonstrate my weekly keyboard technology setup in less than ten minutes, including:
- compiling tracks and loops into Ableton Live,
- loading Mainstage patches into a concert, and
- synchronizing Mainstage patch changes with Ableton scenes.
For the first time ever, I also have actual live video and audio of me playing and using the technology in a weekly church service!
If you are interested, the sounds I use for the third and fourth song are available in the Synth Layers for Piano collection. I literally use two or three patches from that collection every week.
My hope for this video is that you will see that tech doesn’t have to take a lot of time, that you can pick up some tips for your own setup process, and that you will see how it all comes together in performance.
