I made KeyStudio because I wanted a MainStage keys rig that could do it all, but in the simplest way possible.

KeyStudio comes with hundreds of dialed in, pre-mapped sounds. The categorized patch browser lets you quickly audition different sounds to find the perfect one in no time.

Each sound is pre-mapped to give you flexible control over it’s tone and effects. The lower text-mappings provide a selection of additional effects such as Octave, Chord Triggers, Delay, and more.

Use the Ambient Pad Player to generate a pad under your playing. It works as the glue to keep you sounding great solo, or with the band. It is also great for transitions and those quieter moments.

KeyStudio includes a powerful Track Player with features like: display the current and upcoming song sections, repeat a song section, show the beats remaining for a section, fade out, and more.

Use the Transposer to quickly change the key of any KeyStudio patch. Simply select the key you would like to play in, and then select the key you would like to hear the sound output in.

Set the tempo by either typing it in, tapping it in via “tap tempo,” or dialing it in with the knob. Use the Click/Metronome section to toggle the click On & Off, and to select between different click sounds.

Technical Questions

Can my Mac run MainStage / KeyStudio?

Running a live keys rig should always be done on a Mac that can handle the load of MainStage with no problem. You wouldn’t want to risk reliability or stability by running on inadequate hardware. The lowest end Mac that we are comfortable recommending for use with MainStage / KeyStudio is the 2015 MacBook Pro (2.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 and 16 GB RAM). While it is possible to run on even older systems, we do not recommend it due to live stability risks.

What is MainStage? Is it required?

MainStage is an application “playground” for live music performance, created by Apple. KeyStudio is built in MainStage, and so MainStage is required. Thankfully, MainStage is currently $30 on the Apple App Store- it is quite possibly the best deal for music software out there!

What sounds do I get in KeyStudio?

KeyStudio comes with tons of powerful sounds, each with meticulously created mappings that let you customize each sound in various ways!

I'm new to all this... Is it hard to learn?

Hi, glad you’re here! Getting into a digital keys rig can be a somewhat steep learning curve… if you don’t have the proper resources to guide you through it all. Thankfully you’ve come to the right place!

 

KeyStudio comes with training materials that will walk you through the ENTIRE process. We show you how to purchase and install MainStage, connect your gear (a Mac and a digital piano keyboard), and everything else you need to know to get started with MainStage and KeyStudio.

We built the training resources specifically for new users… so don’t worry if you are new to all of this!

Does this work on Windows?

Unfortunately, MainStage is an Apple only application… so KeyStudio will not work on Windows.

What is your license policy?

Good question! You are free to install KeyStudio on as many of your personally owned computers as you would like.

Other people can use your copy of KeyStudio as well, but we ask that you only use one instance of KeyStudio at a time. So… if you wanted to have two people play KeyStudio on two different computers at the same time, you would need two licenses of KeyStudio.

FREE!? Sounds Good to Me...
