So cool to see this, inspiring rig! I loved Heart's early albums. And it's very cool that you and the band get space to be creative within the tunes.

Thanks Dan for taking the time to reply to my and all questions.

They really are timeless songs once you strip away the sonic signatures of the era. In the case of "These Dreams", Nancy's side project with Liv Warfield, "Roadcase Royale", had already cooked up a great arrangement of the song. Nancy's acoustic drives the bus, there's some great slide guitar commentary, and I'm just playing simple chords on Wurly. No keyboard strings, though I do swell in a super subtle square wave vibrato synth pad thing in a few spots, just to give it a little extra sonic "chill". We're playing that version, and it's one of my favorite moments every night.
I saw a version on Youtube where Nancy was playing mandolin on that song - sounded amazing.

Fun fact: Bernie Taupin wrote the lyrics - who knew?

It's refreshing to see a Rig Rundown that's based on hardware-no laptop screen with MainStage running and racks of computer hard drives loaded with samples. It makes an old guy like me still feel relevant.

Yes indeed. Although he didn't write all the lyrics. (Just the good ones?)

Cheers, Mike.

Makes an old guy like me seem irrelevant, long live MainsStage with B5 for Hammond. Unless you think nothing can can beat a Nord for Hammond tone. But seriously each to their own and what works for them, why these informative threads have to devolve into hardware v software debates is beyond me.

I want a pedal with the magic and more magic modes too 😃 Very cool rundown, thank you. I saw you looked annoyed about the change of lighting in your face as much as I was.

thanks, Mark. Thoroughly enjoyable show. First time I had seen "Heart" in 35 years. I was a big fan "back in the day". cool

Honestly, I agonized a little about whether to include a laptop in this rig. Nothing wrong with that approach. I am a heavy user of VIs in the studio, though mostly pianos and strings, I always record with a “real” Hammond.

At the end of the day, I just didn’t want to be climbing the Mainstage / laptop logistics learning curve on this particular gig, especially when setup and teardown labor and gear transport aren’t really major constraints. If I were trying to do a gig with this kind of sonic variety but with logistical constraints (e.g. lots of fly dates or rental backline), I probably would have gone laptop.

There’s not too many ten minute windows in the afternoon where somebody isn’t doing a job up there! I was just glad to have some time where the rig would be set up but there wouldn’t be white noise blasting through the PA, or drums being tuned, or laser beams being aimed, etc.

Thanks for the video Dan! Awesome rig.

Which Nord acoustic piano samples do you use for this gig?

I saw Heart a few years ago and used to play their music in a cover band back in the 80’s. Love the group! Love the songs!

Really nice accordion too. Such a great sound in the right moments, I'm sure that one shines.

Hey Al, the big piano moment in the show is Alone. We rearranged / reharmonized it considerably from the original when I started playing with Ann, and we’ve kept that arrangement for Heart this year. That one is using the Royal Grand 3D, with some low and low-mids cut out using the Nord’s EQ (he’s got a very powerful PA at his disposal out front, so I’ve EQ’d some patches to his taste so he’s not having to EQ me on the fly). I used the new White Grand for the first couple weeks of the tour, but we decided the Royal was better for that tune, which is just piano and voice for the first verse, and the band slowly enters over the course of the song.

I’m also using the Bambino upright, Wurly 2 Amped, the Sparkletop Rhodes, and a CP70/80 sample, can’t remember which.

Many of my friends are reverting from laptops to hardware. Laptops just aren’t reliable enough, and it’s way more fun to play “real” instruments. I used a laptop 10 years ago, figured it wasn’t for me and looked for options. Nowadays I use iconnectmidi stuff and a Music Labs Sipario for routing and filtering. It’s actually easier to fly with an Integra-7 in a 2u rack then with a laptop, sound card, midi interface, power adapters, cables, laptop stand and so on.
