I'm forwarding this from the Yahoogroup because it seems wonderfully appropriate, and I'd love to get a discussion started here. :) (I've also informed the original poster).

From lesterbeat:

hey guys- I've been using mainstage as way to play keyboards without loading up logic. It works great but I can't figure something out.

I have a yamaha kx8 controller hooked up to it and it works fine, however, whenI hook up my m-audio controller, that becomes the controller for main stage. the yamaha is still recognized ( chords spelled out in window) but the notes don't play. I can't find a setting for "make x my default controller". Any ideas.

MainStage can deal with any number of controllers, as long as you do the assignments in layout mode right. E.g. make sure that your keyboard object is actually listening to the right keyboard.

Yeah I was about to ask a similar question in a different thread. I am currently putting together a rig for live performance (I'm a keyboard player), consisting of 2 M-Audio Axiom 61's, a macbook pro (2.53Ghz, 4Gb ram etc), going via a USB interface to a powered speaker and I am thinking of buying logic studio to run mainstage as a host for my AU's.
But I am worried that the 2 Axioms will not be recognized separately as I want to use them to do dual manual organ stuff and run different instruments on them, strings on one and rhodes on the other for example. Will MS be able to do this?

Cheers
