Setting Up Your System

You can use MainStage with a wide variety of MIDI controllers and Core Audio-compliant audio devices. For basic information about designing and configuring your system, including information about computer requirements, connecting audio and MIDI devices, and configuring your audio hardware, see the “Setting Up Your System” chapter in the Logic Pro User Manual.

Real-time generation and processing of digital audio requires intensive processing by your computer. If you plan to work on large or complex projects, using a computer with a faster processor and extra random-access memory (RAM) installed can facilitate your productivity. Additional RAM is useful particularly when using a large number of effects plug-ins and when playing sample-based software instruments. It is recommended that you do not run other processor- or RAM-intensive applications simultaneously with MainStage, particularly when performing live.
