Live Playing Hardware


I’m starting up some live gigs in support of my new album. I’d like to use the same effects in the recording for live performances. Thinking of using a laptop with Cubase and midi controller for controlling the effects. However, I’m a little nervous about losing the dongle. I may also want to use other parts from the CD [via Cubase] if needed for solo gigs. Any ideas on a setup for this scenario would be appreciated.

If going with a laptop and using a firewire interface make sure it has a Texas Instruments IEEE1394 chipset.
