Bigger Than I Thought (feat. Sean Curran)
Passion

This is a full MainStage Concert replicating the exact sounds heard on the album. This template includes 2 patches and contains preset controller mappings within MainStage for playing the song in a live setting. 

Patches Include:

Percussive Piano: A dynamic piano patch with heavy compression and moderate reverb. With the mod wheel down the piano has a dark subdued tone. Raising the mod wheel opens the cutoff filter for a brighter, percussive tone as well as adds additional reverb and delay. The “ValhallaR” reverb plugin uses a large room reverb with a pre-delay of 10ms and a decay of 5s. The piano will work well with any reverb with similar settings.

Pulse Synths: A three layer patch: The first layer covers the entire keyboard and uses a saw synth that pulses at a 1/4 note rate. With the mod wheel down it has a dark, subdued tone. Raising the mod wheel opens the cutoff filter for a brighter more aggressive tone. The second layer covers the top portion of the keyboard (C-4 and up) and uses a thin, bright synth that pulses at a 1/16 note rate. The third layer covers the top portion of the keyboard (C-4 and up) and uses a bright, aggressive sustained synth.
