I’ll be playing my first gig with a new rig this Friday, pics coming soon. I’m running a Korg Kross (version 1) along with a Cantabile setup on an Intel i7 NUC controlled by an Akai MPK 261. Both of those are going into a Line 6 Helix which is acting as both mixer (midi controlled levels from the Akai) and effects (which I can access with my feet or the pads on the Akai, depending on what I’m playing at the time).
I’m using an old tv that I VESA mounted on a mic stand as a monitor until I get something better, but it’s honestly pretty nice having a big screen and since it is HDMI connected to the pc I can run audio to play back tracks while I’m practicing without hooking anything additional up.
It’s reasonably elaborate and pretty much everything is USB midi’ed bidirectionally to everything else*, which I find hilarious since the last rig I posted was an ultra-minimalist rig for some fly dates. (as seen here: Show me your Cantabile Rig! and here Show me your Cantabile Rig!) Should be interesting to try it in a live environment this weekend. Part of the design philosophy was redundancy - just about anything can fail and I still get through the set - so I’m not too worried.
*the Korg isn’t typically controlling Cantabile, but it could with the flip of one button in Cantabile, ready to take over for the Akai, just in case
**The Line 6 Helix would probably be overkill except that I’m doubling on electric bass on this gig.
