Before You Begin

Before you start working in MainStage, you should connect the hardware equipment that you plan to use, such as your keyboard controller, audio interface, instruments, or microphones, to your computer. To use keyboard controllers and other MIDI devices with MainStage, the devices should be capable of sending standard MIDI messages. If you’re not sure whether this is the case for a particular device, consult the owner’s manual or the product website. For more information, see Setting Up Your System.
