A New Way to Control Your Mix

The StageScape M20d's touchscreen display gives you instant access to an array of mixing functions that are usually spread all over a typical mixing board. Need to get a great vocal sound fast? Plug in your vocal mic and select a vocal effects preset; the StageScape M20d will configure a custom chain of processors specifically for vocals, ready to tweak to perfection. Setting up a stage mix is easy too — just plug in all your sound sources and speakers, and the StageScape M20d will automatically recognize what's plugged into it. Routing signals, adding effects, and even setting up monitor mixes is as effortless as playing connect the dots. To speed things up even more, you can select one of the professionally crafted DSP presets for your channel and save and recall a huge number of your own presets!

StageScape + StageSource

Powerful Signal Processing

The DSP built into the StageScape M20d replaces multiple racks of gear that you normally need to get the best live sound. You get multiband feedback suppression on every mic input for squeal-free performance, even with the most difficult stage setups. And in addition to a host of EQ, dynamics, and effects processors available for every channel, there are four stereo master effects available for adding a final polish to the entire mix. With 100 pro-quality audio processors and 32-bit floating-point processing, the StageScape gives you pristine audio and at high-resolution throughout. Pro-sounding live mixes are within your reach — even if you've never used a mixing board before!

Effects include:

  • + Multiband feedback suppression
  • + Parametric EQs
  • + Gates
  • + Multiband compressors
  • + Dynamic EQs
  • + Delays
  • + Compressors
  • + Limiters
  • + and more!

The Ins and Outs

Plug in all of your sound sources, and the StageScape M20d automatically recognizes which are microphones and which are instruments — and optimizes your channel strip and effects settings for them! Using visual cues to route signals and set up monitor mixes, you can manage your audio routing easily via the touchscreen interface. And via Smart Speaker mode, your main PA speakers and subwoofers are automatically self-configured, panned, adjusted, and optimized!

Soundcheck

Thanks to the StageScape M20d's Quick Capture soundcheck features, you can record up to 20 seconds of audio to the internal memory from any of the inputs. The recording plays in a loop, so you can optimize each sound while the band continues setting up. Plus you can set up and adjust the StageScape M20d from anywhere in the room with your iPad! Make mix adjustments from different parts of the room and even tweak monitor mixes right from the stage!

Record Your Show

In addition to using the 20 seconds of Quick Capture recording, you can also record your entire show in high-resolution 24-bit WAV files to an SD card or a USB drive, or directly to your Mac or PC! The WAV files are recorded pre-effects, so the raw tracks can be processed and mixed later in your favorite DAW software, such as Avid Pro Tools or PreSonus Studio One.

Records to:

  • • Internal Memory (20 seconds)
  • • USB Drive
  • • Mac or PC Computer
  • • SD Card

After so many mixers...

I have had the Line 6 M20D for just over one year. I have used many analog mixers since 1969... and purchased this unit to replace a QSC / EV PA system that was stolen.Purchased Line 6 (2) L2m, (2) L3t, and (2) L3s powered speakers to go with it, as well as Line 6 Variax and HD500x. KIller rig with 6400 (Digital) watts.I don't need this much power, having Fender Super Reverb, Marshall JTM-45, and Mesa Boogie Triaxis/2:90 amp... but now, I can leave all that heavy expensive gear home and pick and choose what gear I need to take for the venue that I am playing at that night!.Sound from all the Line 6 gear is fantastic and so easy to set up. Plug and play!Love it and support from Sweetwater's AJ when this gear (And other gear) was purchased.
Music background: Guitar play since 1964

Simply Stagescape

Had the Line 6 Stagescape M20d in my sights since it came out. I had many questions about it: Is it worth the money? Will it do what I need it to do? How easy is it to operate? Has the sales rep tried it? Any feedback from purchasers who haven't written a review? And seems like a lot more questions. John, my sales rep, answered every last one of them. The Stagescape is geared toward people like me: a musician who wants a quick PA setup & mix, but who doesn't want to take the time away from the music, and really not that good of an engineer. Is it worth the money? I had my eye on other mixers as well, so first of all, the price: It's high for a regular 16 channel digital mixer, BUT, it includes a lot of effects onboard that the purchaser would otherwise spend a lot of money on. Adding up the cost of mic processors, compressers, gates, reverb, delay, doublers, preamps, and a lot more that would one would normally stack up in a rack, it came out to cost a lot less than the costs of the outboard equipment I had in my rack, and a lot of my rack mounted gear is low-end equipment! Will it do what I need it to do? Is it easy to use? Experimenting with the Stagescape at home, yes, but the real test came with an event that featured multiple bands, where setups and tear-downs had to be quick, with on-the-fly soundchecks. Being it that I was still learning some of the ins and outs of the Stagescape, it was very easy to use in that situation, as it has auto recognition of which cable is plugged-in, then shows a list of icons that can be chosen for the equipment that is actually in that channel, with each icon coming with automatic presets. There are several of each type to choose from, from male or female vocalists and the vocalist's role, acoustic and electric guitars and basses, to drums and percussion, and even external playback devices. Each can be put on the "stage" just using touch and sliding the icon into position No need to look at a list written on tape on the mixer. Once chosen, it is easy to Tweak each icon with simple and easy to use parameters. Even getting in and changing some of the "advanced" settings was made simple. It did, for that event, what I needed it to do. It was basically an assistant engineer for me that I could just set-and-go on-the-fly. Was easy to adjust, on-the-fly, using only the touch screen. Didn't have to mess with settings on rackmount gear as it's all onboard the Stagescape. Also, doesn't need Direct Boxes. What else can it do? It can save all of those settings that you've made so you won't have to redo them at the next gig. It can save all of those settings so you won't have to redo them at each venue. It can also record, live, each of the 12 mic-input channels and the 2 main output channels, each remaining separated when recording, which makes it easy to make small edits if one is releasing a "live album". Monitors are easy as well. No having to try to find which bus the channel is on, it is simply touch the icons, and use the lighted knobs to adjust the monitor mix. It can also do a lot of things that I haven't discovered or haven't needed to use yet. It's that easy. It's also very light and easy to carry/move around. I bought a road case with the Stagescape to protect it. The screen, after all, is a touchscreen. My questions were all answered by my sales rep, as well as another rep. They took the time to answer all of my questions, even though it took a few phone calls and emails. If you are a musician, like me, who wants easy setups, this is for you. If you are a band who wants to just play, this is for you. If you are an house band and don't want to have to redo your sound checks every time you play, this is for you. If you are a not-so-good sound engineer (like me), this is for you. If you don't want to lug a rack around that is loaded with heavy gear, this is for you. If you're used to all of the touchscreen devices that are being used pretty much everywhere, you will feel right at home with the Stagescape. There is so much more I could say about Line 6's Stagescape, but this review is long enough already. So, simply put: I recommend the Stagescape. It is a fun, simple to use, and awesome device!

M20d DreamScape System

I recently purchased an M20d, with Line 6 speaker system. So far, I am very impressed. There may be a number of details that those deeply engaged in professional sound mixing may critique, but for those who gig frequently, and run their own sound/mixing, this is indeed a dream. It takes some time to get used to the visual interface, but for the ipad generation, do not believe it is a big effort. I did not find any issues with speaker stability (have the Line 6 speaker poles), nor with the wireless dongle insertion, even in a very heavy bass drum beat situation. It set up quickly, though you need to keep in mind the need to use prescribed wireless dongles, and make sure (if you have cellular AND wireless functions on your ipad, to shut off the cellular before connecting, or it may interfere). Great care and service from my Sweetwater engineer, as always.
