Line 6 StageScape M20d Digital Mixer - Quick Review

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
♪♫♪♫..........[Music playing] One of the most incredible developments in small mixers comes from Line 6™. It's the StageScape™ Mixing System. And the reason they call it a "StageScape" mixing system is it works unlike any mixer you've ever seen. It has a touch panel and you use the touch panel to adjust the sound, not the parameters. Let me tell you what I mean.

An experienced sound tech is going to go in and adjust, for instance, compression and limiting and the, uh the amount of EQ at the mid-band. Well those are all terms that a lot of users of small mixers really don't understand. And, it takes a long time to understand that. But, what they've done at Line 6 is be able to translate that into "brightness" or into "punch," in terms that we as artists understand. So let's take a look at this and see how they've done it.

So I have a "make believe" microphone at the end of the cable and I'll just go ahead and plug that into input #1. And this mixer's smart enough now to know that there is an input on 1, and it comes up with the microphone. The microphone I can now select and say "OK, do I want to have a vocal microphone? Or is it drums? Is it keyboards? What is that input?" Well we'll stick with microphone. and then we'll say "Let's adjust the parameter." So we go to the "Tweak" mode. And we can go ahead and adjust, for instance, the uh the space of that microphone. We want to go adjust the Reverb that we have on the microphone. All the parameters are adjustable here, not in the conventional kind of a...a "sound tech" sense, but in the sense of a, a user of it. So, a child could actually mix this with some training...uh you can use this on stage, uh, to have a very easy mixer to adjust as an artist rather than a sound tech.

It has a total of 12 microphone inputs plus 4 Mic Line inputs. You've gotta ha...You've got 4 monitor outputs and if you use the, uh Line 6 link this will talk with their speaker systems as well and be able to communicate and send multiple channels of audio from the console to the mo...speakers digitally. So it's a compact, easy-to-operate system from <a href="http://www.ccisolutions.com/StoreFront/category/line-6">Line 6</a>. ♪♫♪♫..........[Music playing]

Innovation in digital mixing from Line 6. The StageScape M29d Digital Mixer has a touch panel to adjust the sound, not the parameters. This small mixer makes it possible for musicians not familiar with "tech speak" terms like "compression," "limiting" and "amount of EQ at the mid-band" and translates them into terms like "brightness" or "punch," terms that laymen would understand.
