A multi-purpose MainStage Patch for Praise and Worship
1. APPLE MAINSTAGE REQUIRED. This patch is designed to work with MainStage by Apple. It will not work on any other piece of software. MainStage is available here. Make sure to use the latest version of the software.
2. ALL SOUNDS ARE BUILT IN: This patch does not use any 3rd party plugins or instruments/sounds. Everything you need comes stock with MainStage.
INCLUDED SOUNDS AND EFFECTS
The instruments/sounds we’ve included in this patch are designed to cover a wide variety of keys sounds found in modern worship music. You should be able to work through most any worship song using just these sounds.
Each sound/effect is assigned to a fader with the appropriate label. You can then assign these faders to physical controls on your midi controller to be able to fade sounds in/out at your discretion. Certain sounds are only mapped to certain keys of the keyboard, which are visible in the patch.
THIS PATCH INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING SOUNDS:
- Piano: A basic (and great sounding) piano patch
- Rhodes: Rhodes keyboard sound
- Pads: Ambient pads (this is different than the Pad drones that can be triggered)
- Strings: You get an orchestra at your command
- Synth: This is a high-energy dance synth sound
- Pluck: Modern hip-hop percussive synth
- LFO: Warm retro synth lead
- ARP: Arpeggiated synth (16th notes) – this will add a pulse (and a ton of energy) to any song
THIS PATCH INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING EFFECTS:
- Reverb: A basic (and great sounding) reverb
- Shimmer: Ethereal shimmer reverb
- Delay 1: 8th note delay (controlled by the ‘tap tempo’ button or the patch tempo)
- Delay 2: Dotted 8th note delay (controlled by the ‘tap tempo’ button or the patch tempo)
The ‘Transparency’ knob will roll low end off of the Pads drones. This only affects the Worship Tutorials Pads (triggered by the keys buttons). You can basically turn them into a shimmer type of pad sound.
This will affect lows/highs of all the included instruments/effects.
This button will control the tempo of all the time based effects (delays, arp, etc).
This button stops everything!
WORSHIP TUTORIALS PADS SAMPLES BUILT IN
We’ve included a sample of Worship Tutorials Pads in this patch as well. These are base pads that play underneath everything – they’re the same as our award-winning Pads products, just built into MainStage. Just press the button and the Pads play – you can then play anything you want on top of them.
This functionality is a sample of what we offer with our MainStage Pads Player line of products.
CONCERT AND PATCH INCLUDED
We’ve included both a concert and a patch. The patch itself is called ‘Bread and Butter’. You can use the concert to get started right away, or import the ‘Bread and Butter’ patch into any existing concert.
