What's the best software for a band to use for live applications?
Try Digital Performer 3
The old Dos program " Sequencer Plus" by Voyetra is a great live program, it is rock solid [ will not crash ], and lets you view your song list at large while it is running a seq. I have used this program for over 15 years, 5-6 shows per week and never had any on stage "train wrecks". It may be old, but the object is to play the seq's without any problems during the show..this is the one. There are many new programs for actually programing the sequences, but for just "playing them" ,without a doubt this is the most reliable,road proven performer.
My 2c worth - I use Virtual Jukebox from Cakewalk V7 - its old, but very stable on a powerful laptop - remember to disable the screensaver & power saver features, as they cause more glitches in the sound than anything else in my opinion.
My band uses Digital Performer. It's by far the best that I've used so far for live bands. We used to have to hire in brass/strings, etc. but now we just take our little mac buddy and dp3, plug it in, and press play. Once you get the hang of it, the program is VERY easy to navigate too.
my friend has a band and they got their songs professionally recorded. the people used cubasis sx i think
My little Band also uses Digital Perfomer and i think it is a really nice program! Just check it out, and im sure you will like it.
my band uses powertrax. simple, inexpensive, but very effective. we also use song librarian for the sets
we use cakewalk sonar 2.0 and have not yey had any problems
i use cubase sx and i'm very happy with it
