What is the best way to run a click track in Mainstage?
I've tried several things:
1) Creating a click track the length of the song in Logic then importing that into a Playback instance in Mainstage. Works well but means my click tracks take up unnecessary room on my hard disk.
2) Create an Ultrabeat sequence. Have given this a go. Although this means each song doesn't new to have yet another Playback plugin, I was having some syncing issues.
Occasionally, the Playbacks would be out of time with each other. In the instances when they weren't, Ultrabeat would keep playing even when I stopped the Playbacks or, worse, when I changed patch, carry on playing.
If I could get this method to work ad all sync up without issues, it would be my preference.
3) Creating a short AIFF click loop and running it through playback. This works well until I want to cycle a section if the song, after which the click disappears because it thinks I wanted to turn it off.
Any ideas what would work best? Does loop back do anything like this?
