The MainStage Interface

You do all your work in MainStage in a single window, the MainStage window.

The MainStage window is organized to make it easy to work with your patches and the layout of your concert. When you open MainStage, the workspace fills the center of the window, with Inspectors and other editing areas on the sides and below. When you are ready to perform, you can use one of two performance-oriented modes to maximize your computer performance and also maximize your display space for easy viewing on stage.

The first time you open MainStage, the Choose Template dialog appears so that you can choose a concert template to create a new concert. To learn how to open MainStage, see Opening MainStage. For information about choosing a template, see Choosing a Concert Template.
