How do you perform live?

I'm currently setting up for live shows with my electro group. How do you run your backing tracks, synths etc?

I'd love to hear your setups and what has and has not worked for you.

Just about to buy a Yamaha s90es mainly for piano -

Beats and basslines out from an Akai DR4. The Akai has midi, so I lock it to a Roland MC50 sequencing an Akai S1000 and Ensoniq Mirage for various things. Then I play live overtop with either a juno1 or a JX3P.

Hope that helps!

last gigs in 2007 we had:

SP12 MIDI->DIN clocking TR606 clocking ARP sequencer and JP-8 n SH101 arp. SP12 audio went into Mutator. i played rhodes54, jup8, a6, sh2 and microwave via sml ctrlr, my bandmate played vermona organ, formant modular, sh101, obxa, sp202.

suprisingly everything worked well. even tho the doepfer midi to din converter was kinda hit n miss at home. on stage it suddenly worked .. phew. had no issues with tuning either.

for cpl of concerts this spring, we're switching to a similar but simpler setup, at least as far as sequencing n drums, for obvious reasons of pattern memory n needing more channels:

RS7000->Kenton2000mkii->Formant modular, clock to JP-8 and SH-101 arpeggiators. i'm taking JP-8, SH-2, XT. bandmate will play Formant, SP-555, moog theremin. also, we'll be joined by a friend - she's fantastic on electric violin, and will jump in w additional keys on obxa. Rhodes and A6 will be provided on all locations by organisators/label so i dont have to lug mine ..
