    Mainstage 2.2
    I currently have MS 2.1.3 and would like to upgrade to 2.2 but I'm a little wary since it is now an "app" in the app store. Is it going to download and integrate into my current MS program, or add on as a separate program? I don't want to confuse things! Has anyone made this upgrade and how did it go?

    Hi Mike, Unfortunately I am also still on Mainstage 2.1.3 too and haven't made the jump yet to 2.2. Can anyone else confirm if Mainstage 2.2 overwrites the 2.1.3 application?

    Hi Basically you can move the mainstage executable to another location on you mac and then install from the app store and you will be able to use both on the same mac. HOWEVER, my tip is that you back up all your projects before saving them in the 2.2 format. I wasn't that smart.. I upgraded, saved everything in 2.2 only to find that MS2.2 performence is horrible on my dial core MBP. I'm talking about severe dropouts. If you have an i5 or i7 mac it should work ok for you
