I'm very new to this computer/music format. I've been trying to use mainstage as my central effect unit. I thought from reading the setup that osx jack was only required if you wanted to run SL independent from mainstage. I"m able to use SL through mainstage currently using my keyboard. Now as I'm trying to set things up with my midi controller (Gio Apogee foot pedal) it seems as though osx jack or patchbuddy is required to for mapping. My head is getting a bit fuzzy from all research I've been doing to try and figure this stuff out. I thought I read that setting up my midi controller through SL was possible using mainstage. Is this true or am I correct about needing osx jack or patch buddy to do this? Thanks.
