MainStage overview

Apple MainStage makes it easy to bring to the stage all the same instruments and effects that you love in your recording. Everything from the Sound Library and Smart Controls you're familiar with from Logic Pro X is integrated into MainStage. You can even expand your show with prerecorded backing tracks. You'll also find new features like an improved Mixer, easier-to-use channel strips, and more. With the Mac as the core of your live rig, setup is faster, teardown is faster, and everything in between is more reliable. And you can easily use your favorite hardware to control every nuance of your performance.

What’s new in version 3.6.3

  • Fixes an issue in Space Designer which could cause output to sound different than previous versions.

Does ANYONE know where I can obtain a disc or installer for MainStage 2.1.3? I am running Mac OS 10.6.8 (on one of my many Macs - the one I use for events and performing). Yes, I can use another laptop with 10.11 on it, but from reading the comments, 2.1.3 is the version I want. :-)

MainStage is a fantastic piece of software and I've been using it since v.1.0 was first released years ago. However, the recent v.3.1 update has just broken a number of important features (screen controls, mappings, visual feedback).

Don’t want to talk about it, and the price isn’t so fair, neither.

I paid $500 for Logic Studio of which MainStage is apart. Now I am blocked from the incremental updates which according to the update notes include an array of important bug fixes simply because I didn't buy MainStage from the app store? This is completely unacceptable. Dirty, rotten behavior.

I've got 2.1.3 installed, but the 2.2 update doesn't show up in Software Update for me. Perhaps the new update is only available for people who bought the standalone version on the App Store. Seems a bit unreasonable to cut off existing users for a minor update though. Maybe it's just not in Software Update yet.
