Hallelujah For The Cross
Chris McClarney

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:

Piano: A dark piano with heavy compression and moderate reverb. Raising the mod wheel opens the cutoff filter for a brighter tone and stronger reverb. The “ValhallaR” reverb plugin uses a large room reverb with a pre-delay of 10ms and a decay of 4s. The piano will work well with any reverb with similar settings.


Shimmer Pad: A bright shimmery synth pad using octave layers the simulate an organ sound. With the mod wheel down it has a darker subdued tone. Raising the mod wheel opens the cutoff filter for a bright, wide synth pad.


Shimmer Saw - Lead: A two layer patch: The first layer covers the lower portion of the keyboard (F#-4 and down) and uses an aggressive, buzzy saw bass. It uses a moderate decay with light reverb. The second layer in the top portion of the keyboard (G-4 and up) uses a mono percussive saw lead that is transposed 1 octave down. It also uses octave layers.

Software Required: Omnisphere 2, NI Kontakt: The Giant, Valhalla Room
