Default Need he taking my recording sessions live

I just completed my CD using the digidesign M-box, pro-tools 7 and reasons. Now I am needing to set up my live sound using some of the backtracks from my recording sessions. I am a solo performer/keyboardist/vocalist.

First of all how do I route the M-box to an external mixer?
I would like to know how other solo/duo's find it easiest to produce their live sound from their reasons/pro tools sessions.

I've seen a lot of info on what you can do once you are hooked up but I need help getting the set up. I have two JBL powered speakers, a PC with Windows XP, an M-Box, small mixer and some external effects units.

Also I am running the M-box from my midi controller and wanted to purchase a harmonizer for my vocal live sound. So this is two midi programs and if I use the reasons keyboard sounds I'm afraid it won't work with an external harmonizer. Any feedback?

Thanks for your help and input.

Default Re: Need he taking my recording sessions live

I want to use the sounds from Reasons that I used in my recordings and also use some of the backtracks, but play and sing the main parts. I could just use a CD for backtracks but this doesn't help with the reasons sounds that I am playing live from my midi controller keyboard.

The other issue I'm having is I want to use a vocal harmonizer also in my live performances and it is midi based. So don't know how I will be able to use my reasons keyboard sounds and the vocal harmonizer with the same midi controller keyboard.

Thought maybe others have run into similar challenges with creating a live performance.

Most just create Tv tracks or they use stems within PT from the original session...

I'd guess you'd connect the outputs of your Mbox to 2 inputs on your mixer.
