Installing MainStage Patches from Nick Stailey

INSTALLATION FOR MAINSTAGE

Simply open the MainStage concert and you're ready to go.

 

COPING THESE PATCHES TO ANOTHER MAINSTAGE OR LOGIC X TEMPLATE

The quickest way to copy these patches and add them to another MainStage or Logic X template is to click on the ‘cog’ like symbol in the top left corner of MainStage and save each Patch (or Set) as seen in the screenshot below. They will then show up in the ‘Patch Library’ Tab at the bottom of MainStage in  ‘User Patches’.

You will then need to save the ‘Bus’ effects that were used with that patch. You can do this and also save whole channel strips by going to the ‘Setting’ button at the top of the channel strip you want to copy and hit “Save as Channel Strip Setting…” Then you can add this saved channel strip to any other MainStage/Logic X concert by going to the saved channel strip under “User Channel Strip Settings”.

 

LOCATING MISSING EXS24 FILES WHEN IMPORTING INTO NEW CONCERT

After saving the desired Patch and the Channel Strip Settings for that Patch and loading them into a new MainStage Concert file you must first add all the included Samples and Sampler Instruments from the MainStage file you downloaded.

To do this you have to do is locate the Concert file in the folder you downloaded and right click on it. You should see an option that says "Show all contents", click this option.

Now you should be taken to a new window and there should be two folders named "Samples" and "Sampler Instruments". Copy these two folders, now navigate to the Sampler Instrument folder by following the path Users->Your Computer Name->Music->Audio Music Apps->Sampler Instruments.

Create a new folder and title it the name of the Saved Patch, for example "Flowers Pad". Open that folder and paste the Samples and Sampler Instrument folders in the new "Flowers Pad" folder.

Now when you open the EXS24 window for each instrument track inside of MainStage click on the missing file name and then "Refresh Menu". You should now be able to find and select the desired Sampler Instrument found under the "Flowers Pad" tab in the EXS24.
