Installing OB Ambient Pads (MainStage) From Peter James

 

OB Ambient Pads

MainStage

 

 

OVERVIEW

 

Thanks for purchasing the ‘OB Ambient Pads’ bundle. This Ambient Pad Bundle was created using my favourite OB6 pad setting through my BigSky reverb pedal.

 

This OB6/BigSky combination was used a lot on the recently recorded Hillsong album 'Let there be Light' so I wanted to make it available in a format that anyone can use.

 

These Ambient Shimmer Pads can be used in a variety of ways:

- As ambient pad drones to fill out a worship song

- As a transition tool to bridge gaps between songs

- A soundscaping tool for live performance

 

Because they are not tempo specific, they can be used in any tempo, time signature, and the bundle includes every key. They've been crafted musically to work equally well in songs that are in Major or Minor keys.

This bundle ONLY requires MainStage 3 or higher and doesn't require any additional software or plugins.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

 

First make sure you have downloaded the whole product including the Samples. Then open the ‘OB Ambient Pads’ MainStage Concert. Drag all of the downloaded samples into "Drop Samples Here" folder.

 

 

Now, when opening the concert you will be prompted to locate the files

Navigate to your "Drop Samples Here" folder and press "Open". Since this folder now contains all your samples you should be good to go.I suggest saving your OB Ambient Pads MainStage Concert immediately after locating these .wav files so that you don’t need to repeat this process the next time you open this template.

 

 

DETAILED PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

 

This MainStage Template uses 24x 12 minute long wav audio files to create the Ambient Pads through MainStage’s Playback plugin. Note that each Ambient Pad will last for 12 minutes and then fade out by itself.

 

The two different pad types Playback uses to create these Ambient Pads are explained below:
