I have a setup with Mainstage running the tracks for live performances.
Now I need to add some midi-stuff, like vocal effects coming in and out, changing some sounds and plug-ins.
I think I read somewhere that it's possible to run Logic as a slave to Mainstage making these midi stuff work in the background.
Have anyone tried this and how is it done?

Will Logic start when Mainstage is starting (from a footswitch or other controller).
And what about next song? Will Logic be able to load a new song or do I have to switch between the two on stage?

Would be great to hear if someone tried this and what might be the best solution.
I really like working in Mainstage and have some great screens helping the band along the way with cues in large text, but I do miss the midi though.

I posted this message in the Logic forum, but maybe Mainstage users also might know the answer to my question.

I don't think that Mainstage and Logic can run aside each other!

I'd bet you're probably right since they probably both share a lot of resources. Do you have two computers? Perhaps you can use a MIDI out from one computer into the next computer? A couple of Mac Mini's would work no doubt. I use a Yamaha UX10 to go from USB<->MIDI (bought so long ago no doubt many would claim in a deep, resounding voice, "When dinosaurs roamed the earth!") but, heck, it works!
