I currently augment my live guitar performances with a Roland GR33 synth module and a Yamaha G1D hex pickup but I find the Roland's sound set quite limiting and am considering moving to a software-based solution. For recording, I like EastWest's Play and Native Instruments' Kontakt Player, and I was wondering how a MacBook Air (smallest version) would handle these programs during live performance? I don't need a huge number of samples, as I only require some organ, strings, piano, trumpet and a couple of synth sounds. Would the Macbook Air have enough memory? (I'd rather not have to drag around a separate hard drive for samples but I guess if I could fit them on a memory stick...)

I would welcome any suggestions re. choosing hardware and software for this application.

As far as my guitar sound is concerned, I am very happy with my Fractal Audio Axe-FX II and intend to continue using this.
