Line 6 StageScape M20d
Line 6 Inc. announces its StageScape M20d mixing system for live sound applications (price TBA), which features a visual mixing environment via touchscreen. StageScape M20d features professional-grade 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 studio-quality reverbs, delays and a vocal doubler. Users can configure channel effects with channel presets that cover everything from individual drum settings to lead vocals. It also offers multichannel recording and remote control capabilities.
The visual mixing system with intuitive touchscreen control replaces a traditional mixer channel strip. 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 single 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.
StageScape M20d provides multichannel recording; the resulting 24-bit WAV files can be saved to an SD card or USB drive, or directly to a computer.
Users 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 P.A. systems of any scale. 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.
