The Wondrous Cross
Christy Nockels

This is a full MainStage Concert replicating the exact sounds heard on the album. This template includes 1 patch and contains preset controller mappings within MainStage for playing the song in a live setting.


Patches Include:


Piano: A  piano that uses a LPF to give it a dark, muted feel. It uses heavy compression for a strong attack, a thick reverb, and a 1/4 note delay. The “ValhallaR” reverb plugin uses a large room reverb with a pre-delay of 10ms and a decay of 3s. The piano will work well with any reverb with similar settings.




Pulsing Synth: A bright, percussive saw synth that pulses on 1/8 notes using a chordal arpeggiator.





Pad: A bright, ambient synth pad with a long decay and lots of reverb. Raising the mod wheel adds shimmery, rich strings and opens the cutoff filter.


Software Required: Omnisphere 2, NI Kontakt: The Giant, Valhalla Room
Muted Piano
Pulsing Synth
Bright Pad
