Hi guys, i need help... I'm start in the mainstage word. i used cubase for control my vst's and my pc3x kurzweil. a friend show me the mainstage and i loved. It's perfect for vst's control and the interface is very dynamic. but i have a big problem.... I use many of the sounds pc3x and now do not know how to control it from the mainstage. explaining better ...

I use pc3x and a other controller for performance. When i play in pc3x everything works. my vst's and the sounds of pc3x work... but... when i play in my controller, I dont make play sounds of pc3x. only my vst's work.

There is something to do? Any suggestions?

My setup is - macbook - midisport 4x4 - m-audio controller (midi connection)
- pc3x kurzweil (midi connection)

Any help will be very good.

Thank's for all and sorry for my bad english.

    It sounds like your Kurzweil is not responding to MIDI.
    Is it connected? (MIDI cable to MIDI In, etc.)
    Has it been set up to accept incoming MIDI?

    I think he means the other way around. He wants to send midi messages from MS and control/play MS and PC3x from his M-Audio controller.
    MS doesn't send midi messages, but you can get an Audio Unit called MidiOut from here:
    http://www.macmusic.org/software/view.php/lang/en/id/2221/midiO
    put it here on your hard drive:
    /Users/<user name>/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/
    and it will show up as an AU instrument with your other plug-ins on any software instrument channel strip.

    I suggest making a channel strip at Concert Level with the MidiO plug-in if you want it to work for every patch.

    Hope that helps.
