My Kronos has developed power issues & become a bit too unreliable to take on the road. I considered going to a Kronos 2, but a friend recommended going to a Macbook rig with Ableton/plugins etc. Do you recommend one setup over the other?
Answer from Jordan
Sorry to hear about the Kronos problem. To this day I still work with a hardware keyboard instead of the computer for my serious stage performances. There is a reason for that. I really feel like an instrument that is built for music is going to be more reliable and a computer for what I do at this point. That said, there are a lot of pluses of forgetting something like a main stage set up. It comes down to what your most comfortable with

I have a Nord Stage 2 Ex. Keyboards are heavy and unwieldy, it's bad enough trying to carry it around and what not. So, adding all the tech stuff to it too would suck and also add more points of failure.
