I really want to go virtual. I have MS3, and use it in a limited way- for running Trillian when I do left hand bass gigs. I see the power possible, but need some info from you power users. I'd like to start using MS in my "non LH bass" rig. That has, for years, consisted of a DP/workstation for the bottom kb (currently Kurz PC3k), and a 49 key controller on top triggering an external module, currently a Roland XV-5050. I'm considering using MS to replace the 5050. First thing thgat comes to mind is, how many sounds can I access? Most of my gigs have no setlists, tunes are called on-the-fly. I'm accustomed to being able to access any sound instantly without pre-planning what I'll need, and I also don't want to have to use the same sounds on the same songs--- I'm always experimenting. Of course, in practice, this winds up being maybe 50 or 60 sounds, with 10 or less being used 90% of the time, but I like knowing I have 100s of patches instantly available. Is there any practical way to do this in MS? How do you select patches on-the-fly? My Axiom 49 has 20 patch locations- that's not nearly enough, you have to select the patches sequentially, and it takes a second to load the preset.... I need instant access to my sounds- sometimers I'm holding a note on one patch and need the next note to be a different patch. So is there a way to use MS in a way similar to how I'm accustomed to working, or will I need to change the way I do things? All thoughts/input appreciated.
