Whether you’re an experienced loop user, a beginner, or you haven’t given it any thought, we all have something to learn. That’s why I wanted to talk with the master Will Doggett from MultiTracks about this world. Today’s show is an overview of using loops, clicks, & software in your worship services.
We discuss software like Ableton Live, Omnisphere, Mainstage, ProTools, and more. We talk about setting up your loops, best practices, and even a host of recommended gear.
Pull out your moleskin’s folks. It’s about to get real.

Today’s podcast is sponsored by Omnisphere by Spectrasonics. Omnisphere is my latest piece of software for keys and probably the only one I’ll ever need. Incredible pads and textures, innovative keyboard sounds, strings, lead synths, basses and arpeggios, it’s got it all. Literally some of the best sounding patches for keys I’ve ever heard.
We’re in the production stages of recording our next live album and Omnisphere is becoming a massive part of our sound for this project. Run it through MainStage, Logic, Pro Tools, or even Garage Band and you have keys rig for your worship sets that is better sounding and more customizable than anything you’ve ever experienced. Check it out!
