LiveProfessor

LiveProfessor is a live oriented plugin host for Windows and MacOS.
LiveProfessor makes it easy to create a powerful, portable and flexible effect rack using VST or AU plugins.

The software was developed in close collaboration with experienced audio professionals from live sound, theatre and broadcast, and is now used all over the world.

 

Signal Chains

LiveProfessor 2 comes with a new feature called Signal Chains. A chain is a collection of plugins where all plugins are connected in series. It makes it easy to organize plugins, for example all plugins that process the bass-guitar can be put in the “Bass guitar” chain.

Snapshot automation

LiveProfessor comes with extensive snapshot automation. Seamlessly switch between snapshots that save individual plugin settings, or global snapshots that recover the entire state of a project.

Hardware controllers

LiveProfessor also features an extensive system of hardware controllers, to allow you to control plugin parameters and program functions. We’ve worked hard to make this system as flexible as possible, while at the same time quick and easy to use. What’s more, each control can be tweaked to respond just how you want it to.

Responsive User Interface

LiveProfessor has a nice, dark, customizable user interface and let’s you recall window layouts easily using View Sets and Work Spaces

Cue lists

Cue lists allow you to seamlessly change LiveProfessor’s settings during a live performance. Some of these cues include recalling a snapshot, changing audio routing, sending midi messages, and altering project tempo. You can easily recall these on the fly to get the right settings for each individual song.

Midi Modifiers

Each plugin has a set of powerful Midi Modifiers. These are especially useful for keyboard players, with functions such as transpose, key-zone and filter.

Snapshot Automation

LiveProfessor has extensive snapshot automation. There are two types of snapshots. Global Snapshots store and recall the entire setup, while plugin snapshots contain settings only for a specific plugin, more like presets.

The Global Snapshots can be filtered so that you can decide what should be recalled in each snapshot.

Snapshots can be used together with the cue lists to recall settings during a performance

Signal Chains

In LiveProfessor 2 there are two ways to organize plugins, either as free standing units that you wire up any way you like or as Signal Chains

A chain is a collection of plugins where all plugins are connected in series, and can have anywhere from 1 to 8 channels.

Chains make it easy to organize plugins, for example all plugins that process the bass-guitar can be put in the “Bass guitar” chain.
Drag the plugins to change the order of processing.
Replacing a plugin or bypassing the whole chain is easy.

If you are using plugins that create additional latency, chains can be time aligned to each other.

Cue Lists

As one of the most powerful features of LiveProfessor, the Cue Lists lets you program shows for instant recall of all LiveProfessor settings.
The cue list is built up with different cue types, like “Recall Snapshot”, “Send MIDI” and “Map Controller”. With the many cue types available you can make each cue as simple or complex as you like. The cue list can be stepped through as a sequence, or each can be triggered individually by external gear.

Everything in LiveProfessor can be controlled using the cue list, it can even playback audio files

Small setup with lots of power: 20 years ago this setup would have required 6 people to just set up the desk on a table. Additionally there would have been tons of outboard 19" racks and cases full of copper cables to make it work.

Still a great end to my year last year.  Not the biggest or most “cool” gig of the year but a brilliant time with friends (one I’ve known since before I started this career). I don’t get out front as much as I used to since taking on mons for 10cc  full time. so it’s always a fun to be loud once in a while!
Some outboard gear on my current tour.  Not as cool as all the other ones I’ve been seeing lately but it sure does take up less space!
