Mainstage: aggregate device to provide click to drummer
For some of our songs we play along with pre-recorded parts/cues. I have been using an old VS1824 but we have a gig abroad which means flying there, so I would like to use a laptop instead. I have a decent stereo interface that's more than good enough for the FoH: I wondered if I could configure an aggregate device so I can use the headphone output to provide a click+mix for the drummer? He would plug this into his in-ear monitor mixer so levels wouldn't be an issue. The audio host would be Logic Mainstage.
Anyone use this setup and have any experience? Glitching? Time shifts?

You should do some testing to check performance and reliability with your hardware, but better still is to get a multi-output interface if this is for a live system - in general, the simpler the better, the more complex the more prone to issues.
Give it a try and let us know how it works for you.
