I recently switched to Gig Performer from Mainstage and am LOVING it! I used my rig live for the first time the other night and couldnt be happier. Heres some pics of the organ controller I put together. Its a Hammond M3 body with a custom back panel. Im controlling GSI VB3 via a GM Lab D9-X and a stream deck. The integration between GP and the stream deck is really fantastic. Laptop goes inside the organ and a mirrored display on the ipad gives me visual feedback on controls.
Very impressive setup! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for sharing.
Are you using the Stream Deck extension? LINK
Feel free to share more info about your band, and any future videos
I am using the stream deck extention! It works AMAZINGLY. What an incredible asset in this particular build.
What drove you to switch (not that anyone here is complaining )?
Mainstage was never very stable in my experiences with it. That was the primary reason. Now that Ive dug into GP, the flexibility and workflow is a game changer.
Wow! I absolutely love this!
It looks awesome!
Love you rig. Looks beautiful on stage. How much does it weigh and I assume at least a van is needed to transport?? I’m considering doing something similar.
The weight isn’t to bad. I haven’t put it on a scale yet, but i’d estimate it at 65-75lbs. Feels lighter than a Fender Twin to me. The amount of weight that is shaved off from gutting the tone generator and original keybeds is pretty astounding. I drive a pickup truck with a cap on the back, and I can load this myself without a ramp. One of the benefits of the “new” weight distribution is that this can be transported on its back. It’s just midi controllers after all… So, i just tip it up onto the tailgate and slide it in with the back panel off. It also fits standing upright, with the cap on the back of my pickup.
