New York, NY (August 2, 2012)—Line 6 has shipped StageScape M20d, its new live sound mixing system aimed at self-mixing musicians.
Featuring a touchscreen visual mixing environment, StageScape M20d provides DSP audio processing on every channel, including multi-band feedback suppression; other features of note include multi-channel recording, and remote control capabilities via one or more iPad devices.
An visual mixing system replaces the traditional mixer channel strip with touchscreen control. In Perform Mode, a graphic display of the stage setup uses icons to represent each performer or input. Color-coded encoders provide immediate access to level control. A touch on a performer’s icon gives access to all parameters relating to that channel, from basic tweaks to deep effects editing.
The audio signal chain can be controlled via an X-Y tweak pad. Drag a finger toward common sound descriptors like “bright” or “dark” and multiple parameters adjust simultaneously to achieve that sound. Deep Edit mode gives more experienced operators access to every effect parameter via a familiar plug-in style interface.
StageScape M20d streamlines setup with auto-sensing mic and line inputs and outputs that can detect when a connection is made and automatically configure the channel gain, EQ, effects and routing.
Various recording options are also available. StageScape M20d provides multi-channel recording in high-resolution, 24-bit WAV files to SD card, USB drive or direct to computer. The system also features effects on every channel, including fully parametric EQs, multi-band compressors, feedback suppression and more. In addition, four master stereo effects engines are available, comprising reverbs, delays and a vocal doubler. Musicians can configure channel effects with presets that cover everything from individual drum settings to lead vocals.
Musicians can control the mixer from any location by using one or more iPad devices with StageScape M20d. This makes it possible to set individual monitor mixes from the stage, or adjust the front-of-house mix from any location inside the venue. Equipped with the L6 Link digital networking protocol, StageScape M20d allows musicians to configure and control PA systems. Connect StageScape M20d to L6 Link-enabled StageSource speakers and the system automatically configures stereo signals and effects, sets individual component levels and adjusts individual speaker performance.
