yannis D Posted November 13, 2018 Share Posted November 13, 2018 I know this topic have been discussed here many times. But i also think it's in the mind of many forum members, as most of us flirt with this option: Make long story short: i'm thinking of selling my NE 5 D and go on the software-only route. Next week I have a gig where I am thinking to run everything from my Mainstage on an old Macbook (2008): Scarbee rhodes/Wurlies and Vox/Farfisa, VB3 organ, Arturia Minimoog, Pianoteq, MainStage clavinet . I have already mapped everything to my M Audio controller so i don't have to reach out to my laptop (which will be hidden), and everything is as simple as it gets. Already rehearsed with it and it went flawlesly. If I need, i will hook a small Akai 25 keyboard -so i can have some secondary sounds handy-, or just add my small Yamaha CP Reface as a second key designated for Rhodes and clavs (but i can't count on this one as a proper backup, as i mainly use organ/farfisa sounds on my MainStage, and Yamaha doesn't have them). In the past i have done software-only gigs, but on the back of my head there was always the possibility to bring the hardware du jour on stage (Some sort of Nord, which was already up there, but only as a backup...) So what are your experiences? Has anyone gone this software-only road?
