Polkahero Posted October 18, 2018 Share Posted October 18, 2018 I just accepted and got one of the keyboard books for a production of "Mamma Mia". I've only played keys for one musical before (usually I'm on bass), and now I know why the Broadway synth cats get double pay for these productions: it would take me days just to program/layout all of the 130 patch changes in this show! Guess I'm looking for a "quick and dirty" solution to all of these patch changes. There's triggers, arpeggiated patterns, etc. that I don't want to deal with, plus multiple synth pad/lead patches for different ABBA songs. Can I just settle on a decent lead or pad patch and roll with that the entire show? Not even sure if I want to bring my own board (probably would roll with the Kawai MP7 which has limited synth sounds) as I think they're providing something (likely a Clavinova). Help!
