I am a newcomer to the forum and am seeking more information about GP. I have been playing keyboards and synths for 40+ years, working with DAWs since 1996 and software synths for about the last 10 years. This is all on Windows mostly using desktop computers. I’ve done a lot of live performing but not so much these last 15 years. I started working with a band recently and I’ve become a lot more interested in using tracks, software synths and automation in a Live setting.
I’m not really sure how certain things work in this environment. Ideally I’d like to run multiple keyboards as well as guitar, bass, vocals, and eventually drums through something that would play tracks, control patch changes and effects for the instruments and vocal channels and be able to quickly move to the next song with everything programmed ahead of time.
After looking at Mainstage for more than a year now I’ve discovered there seems to be some decent Windows alternatives. I very much do NOT want to go to Apple and I’m feeling like GP looks pretty good so far. I have a lot of questions but could someone school an old synth-jockey on catching up to 2020 possibilities?
