    You can drag and drop clips but make sure to hold the option key on Mac or alt on PC so you make duplicates not moving. This is also a common function across your computer btw, like copying files or text in word processor.

    When you have multiple layered sounds how do you choose where they are triggered on the piano keys? I'm not as familiar with Ableton. I know in Mainstage its pretty simple to allocate sounds to low keys or high keys.

    GREAT things Jake! I haven't gotten so deep in the automation at our church, but I see where we could be heading. Love the ProP cues and the Keys cues. I'm going to start implementing some of those. We've also talked about implementing MIDI to cue the lights…

    This is great stuff Jake, love it! I'm brand new to all the digital worship stuff and have always done analog/acoustic all my life. I'm a software engineer by trade and musician at heart so I do understand it all; just never tried. My question is, can I use this setup, with a single computer, to run two keyboards? ie. one keyboard player, two keyboards on the same stand? Or, would I need to two computers running Ableton? Thanks!

    What an "automation of worship" and there seems always pro and contra. So, far I have to do nearly all of them LIVE as our worship leaders never stick to any plan and the more abrupt the change is the more it is or were "from "GOD". Hallelluyah=PraiseYAH!!!

    I know you make broke worship leader vids, but man i cant justify even a second hand mac +software+hardware just for one instrument. Your chanel has become this place where i drool at what i cant have. Like a BMW dealership.

    Reasonable setup: Arturia keylab 88 hammer action, Macbook Air, Ableton live Standard, focusrite 2i2, cables and more. 800+1000+350+100+50=2300. For that price you could just buy a used Nord. I have seen Nord Stage 2 and 3 for that price second hand. Only benefit of this setup is that you can trigger different things with midi but again, it is a more complicated setup with more things to go wrong. A bad cable, SSD crash, some spooky update fucking up shit, computer hanging or just a simple setting as forgetting to turn of automatic sleep on the computer………

    We use Nord Stage 2 as our lead keys and push synth behind it. But I’m not super satisfied with its building fill sound or transition fill. Should I try to pursue a midi controller for that sound or should I go a different direction?

    How would I do this with two different keyboards? Am I able to select one preset for one midi controller and a second preset for another controller from the same program?

    I think it’s a massive shame that people are going down the route of backing tracks. Playing to a click – brilliant. It enables consistency and allows for time critical effects etc. Playing to a track I find very frustrating. I’ve seen a good worship team who are so focused on what’s coming next that they’re not engaging in the worship itself. It becomes rigid to the point that even the ‘spontaneous’ bits are preplanned, and most importantly it takes away individuality and creativity of a group of musicians. I’d always say work with the musicians you have, and as a worship leader make sure that you are in a position to actually develop THEM and musicians, both individually and as a team member.

    Though you would be running the SundayKeys and Loops at the same computer…. haha, anyway, thanks for sharing

    Could you explain in more detail how you are sending patch changes from the tracks computer to the keyboard computer? I have Sunday Keys for Ableton, too.

    is it required to have an audio interface? Or will it be fine with my computer's soundcard? We have a mixer in our church but we don't have an interface for our keyboard. So will it be fine with just a computer soundcard or will there be any big changes to the quality of the sound?

    I'm looking to move on from mainstage to something else for those weeks when we don't have a drummer… but if I need two computers to run patches and a drum track, I'll continue my search…
