Mainstage Mondays: Using a Click Track Live
As more and more bands begin to use loops live, being able to run a click track to all band members directly from Mainstage can be a useful time-saver. Also, when you use a metronome it makes it easier to sync delays and trigger timed audio files when needed. Here’s how to do it:
1. Open Mainstage, and import the patches you want to use.
2. Under “attributes”, change the tempo to whatever tempo you’d like to use during the song.
3. Under Mainstage 3 > preferences > general, change the metronome output to 3-4 (note: you must have a multi-output audio interface for this to work)
4. When you perform live, you can now send a separate signal to your mixer with a metronome by simply clicking the metronome icon in the RH corner.
