I’m a long-time (cough, old) keyboard player who’s always used Korgs and Rolands, dragging them along with everything else to gigs for 35 years. In 2 weeks, all of that ends as I play my first gig with 2 M-Audio controllers (88 and 61 key), my laptop with virtual keyboards, and Gig Performer holding it all together.
I’ve been rehearsing a lot and haven’t seen a glitch yet - kudos on an awesome program - but of course I have some nerves about switching quickly enough between songs (the singer reads the crowd and calls from a 70 song list that I’ve got stored as a gig).
So, fingers crossed, I have buttons mapped to go through the set and hope I can hit them fast enough to possibly go from song 3 to song 63 without too much of a delay (ha!). Will update on my story using GP as the prep and the show goes on. The band that I just joined will be performing 60 shows or more a year, so I’m hopeful GP can be my hero!
Thanks for the program.
