Hi, guys.


For most gigs, I use a Yamaha Mo'8 whose sounds are perfectly fine for most uses, but I have an important gig coming up in March where I would like to harness MainStage.  Here is the equipment I would like to use.


- Yamaha Mo'8: MIDI controller and 2nd sound source in case something goes awry.

- MBP running MainStage plus NI Komplete 8 Ultimate, Spectrasonics Omnisphere.

- OWC hard drive enclosure running 2 TB Western digital 7200 hard drive.

- Apogee Duet 2


I'm not sure what my stand is, so unless I know what make and model my stand is, I wouldn't be able to get a laptop extension for it.  It's important that the laptop has to be very close to my eyes because I'm partially blind.  If anyone can think of a good setup for mounting the laptop plus Duet and hard drive, please let me know.


In regards to safety, should I have a spare set of audio leads plugged in to the Mo' 8 that I can bring up just in case the computer goes down for some reason?
