Sounds Of Styx


This MainStage version 3.4.4 sound set is my most ambitious yet and took over 7 months to complete.  The concert consists of 42 master patches and over 100 custom instrument patches for 30 popular songs as recorded and performed by the legendary classic rock band Styx.  All patches use stock MainStage VI’s and Samples as included in software version 3.4.4.  No additional samples or 3rd party VI’s are used.
