  • How To Add Ambient Pad Audio Files to MainStage 3

    This tutorial assumes you have a advanced knowledge of how MainStage works, and can follow instructions well. Make sure to make a backup of your original concerts in case something goes wrong, so you can start over.

    This tutorial is provided for informational purposes only, That Worship Sound is not responsible or liable for your MainStage concert not functioning or breaking.

    We are using Worship Essentials 1.3 in MainStage 3.3, with Motion Pads 4 for this tutorial.

     

    STEP 1

    Open your MainStage 3 concert

     

    STEP 2

    Go to the Layout tab, and add a button from the Panel Controls section

     

    STEP 3

    Assign your button to a button/pad on your MIDI keyboard or controller. Make sure your keyboard keys are assigned to a different device or MIDI channel. In this example, we are using an M-Audio Code 61. After you Assign, your controller button should toggle the MainStage button in the Edit window.

      

     

    STEP 4

    In the Edit window, go to Concert Level, by clicking on the name of your concert file in the Patch List. In the Channel Strips section on the right, press the Plus (+) button to create a new Channel Strip. Set the Type to Instrument, with no MIDI Input, and Output will be set to an empty Bus channel (we picked 17).

      

     

    STEP 5

    Name your new Instrument Channel StripC” and the BusPad“. On the C Strip, add the Playback plugin at the Input section.

      

     

    STEP 6

    Now, we will assign the Button we created to the Playback plugin. Click on our Button, and in the Screen Control Inspector at the bottom of the Edit window, go to the Unmapped tab. Then assign the following:

    C (the channel strip we made) > Playback > Transport > Play/Stop (Switchable)

     

    STEP 7

    Now, we will add our Ambient Pad to the Playback plugin. We have an extensive collection of Ambient Pads that sound incredible. WAV or MP3 are fine. Open your Finder window, navigate to your pads, find the one for “C”, and then drag it on top of the Playback plugin. After a few seconds the file will be copied to your MainStage concert, and you can open the Playback plugin to verify the file was imported successfully. Now when you press the button on your MIDI controller, you should see volume levels in the C channel strip.

        

     

    STEP 8

    Now we will add the Space Designer reverb plugin to our Pad Bus to simulate a fade-out, when the pad is stopped. After you add it, open the plugin, and load the preset: Warped Effects > Moving Spaces > Slow Shake. Then, in the plugin Volume Envelope area, set your Init and End Level to 0, and your Attack and Decay time to 5s.

        

     

    STEP 9

    Now when you start your pad, it swells, and then fades when you stop it.

      

     

    STEP 10

    That’s it! You created an Ambient Pad in C! To create buttons for additional keys, just follow this tutorial again and create more buttons and channel strips. All the channel strips will go to the same Pad Bus.

  • How to import patches into Worship Essentials

  • How to use Drone Tools in Worship Essentials or any MainStage template

    How to properly install and use Drone Tools 1.4 (DT) by Stephen Sherwood, in Worship Essentials 1.3 (WE) by Abel Mendoza. This method also works to add DT to any MainStage concert. At the end, there is an additional section showing how to use both DT and WE with only 1 keyboard. Please click on a picture to see it full-size. This tutorial assumes you have a medium knowledge of how MainStage works, and can follow instructions well. Make sure to make a backup of your original concerts in case something goes wrong, so you can start over.

    Products used in the tutorial:
    Worship Essentials 1.3
    Drone Tools 1.4
    MainStage 3.3

     

    Step 1.

    Open both concerts, Drone Tools 1.4.concert and Worship Essentials 1.3.concert. You may get the message “Do you want to close the current concert before opening a new concert?“, choose “Don’t Close“. They should be both open, either next to each other or overlapping.

     

     

    Step 2.

    Go to the Layout tab on both concerts.

     

    Step 3.

    In the WE window, add a new keyboard. In the Screen Controls Palette in the bottom window, choose All Controls, scroll to Keyboard, and then drag into the concert layout screen. Set the new keyboard to 25 keys, and make sure Display keyboard layers in unchecked. Using the resize handles, make it small and then position right below the WE controls.

     

    Step 4.

    In the DT concert, select all of the controls except the keyboard, and use Command+C to copy them. You should have selected the 4 knobs, 1 button, and 1 horizontal meter.

     

    Step 5.

    Go to the WE concert. Use Command-V to paste the DT controls into the WE concert.

     

    Step 6.

    Drag these controls near the new keyboard, and resize them to fit better. You can resize all of the knobs together by selecting them all first, then using the resize handles.

     

    Step 7.

    IMPORTANT: Make sure to change the DT button we just resized to a new number. Click on the button and change the Number from 49 to 110 (Ctrl 110). ALSO, change our 3rd knob from 17 to 111.

     

    Step 8.

    Go back to the DT concert. Select Drone Tools 1.4 in the patch list, to get to the concert level. Then click on the Oceanic Pad channel strip, so it’s highlighted. Then, use Command+C to copy the channel strip.

     

    Step 9.

    Go to the WE concert. Click on Worship Essentials 1.3 in the patch list to get to the concert level. Then use Command+V to paste the new channel strip. You should see the pop-up message “Creating a channel strip at the concert level“, just choose “Create“. The Oceanic Pad channel strip will now show at the far right.

     

     

    Step 10.

    Now we will begin to map our Drone Tools controls. While still on concert level, Edit window, choose our DT button. In the Screen Control Inspector > Unmapped, go to Oceanic Pad (9) > Scripter > Drone State. Saved Value should be Bypassed.

     

    Step 11.

    Now choose the first knob. This will be our DT transpose. In the Screen Control Inspector > Unmapped, go to Oceanic Pad (9) > Scripter > Transpose. Saved Value should be 0.

     

    Step 12.

    Now choose the second knob. This will be our DT interval thickness. In the Screen Control Inspector > Unmapped, go to Oceanic Pad (9) > Scripter > Interval Thickness. Saved Value should be 4.

     

    Step 13.

    Now choose the horizontal meter. This will be our DT volume meter. In the Screen Control Inspector > Unmapped, go to Oceanic Pad (9) > Level.

     

    Step 14.

    Now choose the third knob. This will be our DT tone high cut. In the Screen Control Inspector > Unmapped, go to Oceanic Pad (9) > Channel EQ > High Cut Frequency.

     

    Step 15.

    Lastly, choose the fourth knob. This will be our DT volume control. In the Screen Control Inspector > Unmapped, go to Oceanic Pad (9) > Volume. Range Max should be 0.0.

     

    Step 16.

    Next, assign your keyboards. We recommend your main keyboard for Worship Essentials, and a smaller keyboard for Drone Tools. For each, click the Assign button so it turns red, then press a piano key to select, then press Assign to turn off. For clarity, I named our main keyboard WE Keyboard, and our smaller one DT Keyboard.

     

    Step 17.

    Save your new concert, go to File > Save As…, and then after saving it, completely quit MainStage and then open your new concert.

     

    Step 18.

    You’re finished! Test out the concert and Drone Tools, everything should work good! Use the Drone Tools controls to set the octave to the range you prefer. If something is not working correctly, go back over these steps and double-check everything!

     

     

    How to use both Drone Tools and Worship Essentials with only 1 keyboard

    Step 19.

    Go back to your Layout screen, and select each keyboard, and assign to the same controller. In this example, we are using the M-Audio Code 61, and decided to use the highest octave for Drone Tools. So our DT Keyboard Lowest Key will be C5.

     

    Step 20.

    Now we will set our Drone Tools layer to the top octave. Go back to the concert layer, the top folder in the Patch List. Click on the Oceanic Pad channel strip, then in the Instrument Channel Strip Inspector, click on the Layer Editor tab. Use the Learn buttons to set your High and Low keys, in this example we set them to C5 (Low) and C6 (High). Now, no other keyboard keys will trigger the Drone Tools, except our top octave.

     

    Step 21.

    In this example we are using patch #8 That Worship Sound. But this will apply to any patch that you want to use Drone Tools with. Select the patch, then select each channel strip in the patch one by one. In the Instrument Channel Strip Inspector, click on the Layer Editor tab. Set the High Key of each channel strip to right below your Drone Tools octave. So for the first 4 channel strips in this patch, we have set the high key to B4. The last 2 channel strips low keys are already below B4.

     

    Step 22.

    You are finished! This is what the finished concert should look like. Use the Drone Tools controls to set the octave to the range you prefer. If something is not working correctly, go back over these steps and double-check everything!
