Software to control your stage setup?


Recommended Posts

Hi again...back with another question...


I'm kind of on infornationoverload since I've gotten back into the band thing after a 10 year hiatus.


Anyway, Journey concert last year, I was fortunate to have front row on Jon Cain's side of the stage.


I noticed he had a laptop to the left of the synthesizer (an old Ensoniq TS-10 I think) that sits on top of his piano.


Between every song, I would see him "click" the mouse pad, and I could see things change on a couple modules in his rack.


Question: what kind of software does this? It looked like he could change entire scenes with one click, and be ready for the next song.

In theory, any reasonably versatile sequencing software or hardware could accomplish this. Set up a "mini-song" in the sequencer for each new song, or for each program change within a song. Each "mini-song" simply consists of bank select & program change commands on the applicable midi channels.

I used to think I was Libertarian. Until I saw their platform; now I know I'm no more Libertarian than I am RepubliCrat or neoCON or Liberal or Socialist.


This ain't no track meet; this is football.
