The Ultimate Digital Mixer for Live Sound Mixing and Recording

When you have the Line 6 StageScape M20d digital mixer on hand during a show, you have your own personal sound engineer right there to do all the live mixing, recording, and audio processing work for you. Featuring intelligent auto-sensing inputs, this 20-channel digital mixer recognizes any sound source -- instruments, microphones, even speakers -- that you connect to it, and automatically sets up channels and effects settings, saving you loads of time during live performances. How awesome is that? Its large touchscreen provides a colorful visual mixing environment complete with instant multi-parameter effects control and a detailed "picture" of what's going on onstage; icons, rather than rows of knobs and faders, show you the status of each part of the mix, as you see it in front of you.

Get a quick overview of the M20d with this video from Line 6:


The StageScape M20d offers a professional suite of built-in dedicated effects on every channel, an easy-to-use Tweak Pad for visual multi-parameter control, and integrated multi-channel recording to capture rehearsals and shows. You even get the freedom to step away from the mixer and adjust your mix remotely via an iPad and the free StageScape app.

A Visual Mixing Experience

About the size of your hand, the 7-inch, full-color touchscreen interface is large, clear, and vibrant -- easy to view and navigate in any kind of lighting. Line 6 designed the touchscreen with your workflow in mind: instead of displaying the usual rows of knobs and faders found on a digital mixer, it displays icons on a stage that represent each performer or input, allowing you to make the visual connection between sound source and channel. Simply touch an icon to access all parameters relating to that channel, and perform everything from basic adjustments to deep effects editing. You can use the touchscreen to manage your sound using visual cues to set up mixes, route signals, and more. Or, step away from it all and do the same from the screen of an iPad.

Remote Control Via iPad

One of the nice things about the StageScape M20d is that it allows you to use an iPad to walk around the venue and tweak your mix from anywhere in the arena. With the free StageScape app loaded on an iPad, you have full control over all mixer features and functions, so you can set 4 individual monitor mixes from the stage, tweak the front-of-house mix from the audience, and whatever else you can think of. Via an optional USB Wi-Fi adapter, you can use more than one iPad to control separate screens or different parameters -- a handy feature for when you need a band member or sound engineer to adjust a mix from another spot in the venue.

Loads of DSP on Every Channel

Keep your rack gear at home -- use the StageScape M20d's onboard suite of dynamics, EQ, and FX processors to create the perfect mix. Line 6's 32-bit floating point processing provides high-quality sound. You get over a hundred fully parametric EQs, dynamic EQs, filters, standard and multi-band compression, limiters, gates, delays, and more, all custom-tailored to each channel. Four stereo master effects let you shape and sweeten the entire mix. Multi-band feedback suppression is available on every mic input, ensuring that perfect sound isn't ruined by annoying squeals during performances.

Touch the Tweak Pad to Dial in Your Ideal Sound

When you want to dial in channel EQ, dynamics, and FX real fast, get your hands on the Tweak Pad X-Y multi-parameter controller. Want a specific kind of tone? Drag your finger across the pad toward descriptive words like "bright" or "dark" to adjust your sound accordingly.

Quick Setup

Auto-sensing inputs and outputs make setting up live shows way easy. As soon as you plug in a cable, the StageScape M20d uses its auto-sensing inputs to activate each microphone or line input; then it automatically configures a custom channel strip that includes essential gain, EQ, effects, and routing. The same goes for monitor and main outputs -- plug in a PA speaker or monitor and the gear immediately appears on the touchscreen and output signals are automatically routed.

Total scene recall allows the StageScape M20d to save and recall a near unlimited number of stage setups, scenes, and channel DSP presets, for the ultimate in quick setup.

Easy Multi-Channel Recording

With the StageScape M20d, you can capture song ideas, record rehearsals, and save entire performances at a moment's notice, without the use of a computer. Record 12 channels of 24-bit WAV files to SD card, USB drive, or directly to your Mac or PC. Record a show and play it back before the audience leaves the hall.

Instant Sound Check

With the Quick Capture sound check feature, you can record up to 20 seconds of audio to internal memory from any of the inputs. Quick Capture loops those 20 seconds so you can optimize each drum sound, guitar, and so on while everyone is still setting up.

Product Description

The Line 6 StageScape M20d is the world's first smart mixer for live sound. Utilizing a groundbreaking touchscreen visual mixing environment, StageScape M20d streamlines the way you mix to keep you in the creative zone while getting your live sound dialed in quickly. Massive DSP power delivers comprehensive, professional audio processing on every channel including multi-band feedback suppression. Pristine audio quality will impact your stage performances, and multi-channel recording allows you to easily capture every rehearsal or show, with or without a computer. The entire system can be controlled remotely from the stage or audience with one or more iPad devices. StageScape M20d is the integrated professional mixing system that delivers great live sound, so you can focus on what's most important: your performance.

Intelligence is built into every aspect of StageScape M20d. From auto-sensing inputs that automatically configure channel DSP processing to professionally crafted presets, to innovative touchscreen-based multi-parameter effects control, StageScape M20d provides a smarter, faster path to great live sound.

Connect StageScape M20d to StageSource loudspeakers via L6 LINK to create the ultimate digitally networked dream stage setup.

Touchscreen visual mixing environment

StageScape M20d features an intuitive, 7 inch full color resistive touchscreen interface to get you mixing fast. The touchscreen displays icons on a stage that represent each performer or input, replacing generic rows of knobs and faders. Now you can reach for elements in the mix as you see them on the stage in front of you. A single touch on a performer's icon gives full access to all parameters relating to that channel, from basic tweaks through deep effects editing.

Control the mix via iPad, wherever you are

Set individual monitor mixes from the stage, tweak the front-of-house mix from the audience and more via iPad. The free StageScape app provides full control over all mixer and features and functions. Use one or more iPad devices simultaneously (via optional USB Wi-Fi adapter); each iPad can control different screens or different parameters in addition to the mixer's own touchscreen. Whether you're a band member adjusting your monitor mix or a sound engineer out in the audience, you've got full control.

Professional suite of Dynamics, EQ, and FX on every channel

StageScape M20d provides a professional suite of dedicated Dynamics, EQ, and FX processors custom tailored to each channel including fully parametric EQs, dynamic EQs, filters, standard and multi-band compression, limiters, gates, delays, and more. That's over 100 professional audio processors ready to create the perfect mix. 32-bit floating point processing throughout provides pristine, high resolution sound quality. Everything you need to get professional instrument and vocal sounds is available where you need it, when you need it.

Tweak Pad, visual multi-parameter control

For quickly dialing in channel EQ, dynamics, and FX, StageScape M20d provides an incredibly easy to use Tweak Pad X-Y multi-parameter controller. Drag a finger toward common sound descriptors like "bright" or "dark" and multiple parameters adjust simultaneously to achieve that sound.For experienced engineers who want fine control over all parameters, Deep Edit mode provides detailed plug-in-style interfaces, with discrete calibrated adjustment capability.

Total Scene Recall

StageScape can save and recall a virtually unlimited number of stage setups, scenes, and channel DSP presets. A huge library of professionally crafted channel DSP presets is provided to get you started and dramatically accelerate the process of getting great instrument and microphone sounds. Plug in a kick drum mic, choose a kick drum preset, and StageScape automatically configures a custom tailored suite of channel processors -- all you have to do is drag your finger around the Tweak Pad to dial in the perfect kick drum sound.

Multi-channel recording, with or without computer

StageScape M20d is designed to make recording so easy that it can be done any time, all the time-even without a computer. The M20d records in high-resolution, 24-bit WAV format to SD card, USB drive or direct to your Mac or PC. The convenience of being able to record to external media means you can track at a moment's notice with no DAW set up required. Since the recorded output is pre-effects, the raw tracks will be ready for mixing later in the recording software of your choice. The M20d enables you to easily capture everything -- from ideas and rehearsals to entire performances -- on your terms in the way that works best for you.

Auto-sensing inputs and outputs

From solo performances to full band shows, setting up for gigs is fast and easy. With auto-sensing inputs throughout, StageScape M20d activates each microphone or line input as soon as you plug in a cable and automatically configures a custom channel strip that includes essential gain, EQ, effects and routing. The monitor and main outputs work the same way. Plug in a PA speaker or monitor and it immediately appears on the touchscreen and output signals are automatically routed.

Multi-band feedback suppression

One of the most common problems that can ruin a performance is feedback. Fortunately, StageScape M20d features per-channel multi-band feedback suppression. Simply choose one of three suppression modes, and the technology quickly identifies problem frequencies and compensates automatically. You can perform with confidence that you sound your best.

Digital networking via L6 Link & the Dream Stage

When connected via L6 Link, StageScape M20d and StageSource speakers are capable of unparalleled power and flexibility. Together they redefine the typical mixer/speaker paradigm to introduce a smarter live sound experience in which the live rig is a complete, intelligent ecosystem rather than merely a linear combination of components.

StageScape automatically recognizes which loudspeakers are being used as monitors and routes monitor feeds. Main PA speakers and subwoofers automatically self-configure, pan or sum stereo signals, adjust Smart Speaker modes and perform system-wide optimization.

Quick Capture sound check

At the touch of a button, StageScape can record up to 20-seconds to internal memory from any of the inputs. Quick Capture sound check enables you to work on dialing in the perfect sound quickly by looping a recording of the input, whether a drum sound, an acoustic guitar, a vocal, or the entire band.Best of all, with an iPad you can adjust your front-of-house full band mix from the audience while you listen to the sound check playback.

Fader View:

With v1.2 software, you now have the choice of alternating between the innovative Stage View and a more traditional Fader View whenever you want. The Fader View emulates the look and feel of a conventional mixer, and can be used to control channel levels, monitor sends, FX returns and outputs. The faders can also control group levels, making it easier to manage high channel counts. Fader View also enables you to mix monitor sends on faders for those "Can I get more me in my monitor?" moments. And when your singers want to hear reverb or delay on their vocals, you can send master effects to their monitors.

Fader View is available on the StageScape M20d display as well as the StageScape Remote iPad app. For the best of both worlds, you can use Stage View and Fader View together. For example, set StageScape M20d to Stage View and your iPad to Fader View and bank through faders simply by touching icons. It's a faster, more intuitive experience than you get with other digital consoles.

Artist Presets:

To help you quickly dial in great live sound, v1.2 software also introduces signal chain presets designed by A-list front-of-house engineers:
- Brad Madix (Rush) contributes a complete set of rock presets--including kick, snare, bass, guitar and vocal.
- Daniele Di Giovanni (James Brown, Ray Charles, Dave Grusin, Lee Ritenour, Mike Stern) offers a stereo Jazz Piano preset developed using the Earthworks Piano Mic System.

4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Cannot believe the quality!!!!"
Overall: This system is amazing, I have two L3S subs, two L3T tops, and the M20d. OMG!!! Have done a couple shows now with this system, had many friends in the business come out to our shows just to check this system out. The feedback I got from them was "They have never heard a coverband in a club sound this good". The thump from the kick, and the clarity of all the instruments is to die for!!! Also the coolest thing was the band playing a song for sound check and then I got off my drums and grabbed one of two Ipad's we had connected to the board and myself and my Bass player were playing back what we just recorded and mixed the band right there. People in the club were so confused because we just played it and now we were standing across the room and playing it back!!!! This system Rocks!!!! well worth every penny!!!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "WOW!!"
Sound: Amazing! The auto trim feature analyzes mic signals throughout your performance and automatically compensates for de-essing and clipping, especially with my headset mic I use while drumming. Feature: Touch screen control surface, the visual scene setup guidance, quick and deep tweak effects controls, lots of on board effects and DSPs. During the first use of this mixer, after about 15 minutes of setting the scene, the sound of the performance came out great. Lots of internal presets save time and energy. Ease of Use: This is a mixer for dummies! Even if your a novice sound guy or a band that needs to control the mix from the stage, this unit makes EVERYTHING simple! And the entire manual is written in the operating system for instant recall! Quality: The housing is pretty heavy duty, though I recommend keeping it in a road rack to avoid damage. Value: I have a friend with a Presonus mixer that cost about the same with 16 XLR inputs and the iPad remote control capabilities, but it lacks the DSPs, auto trim, feedback analysis, and the direct track recording. This unit is a live/studio mixer, a mobile recording unit, and racks of effects all in one. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with it yet, but I got the software upgrades from the Line 6 site, and registered owners are notified of further upgrades. The Wow Factor: This is a killer live mixer! The L6 link with matching speakers is a great idea. Being able to actually record 20 seconds of music internally, and THEN tweak settings for sound check using an iPad remote control while walking around the stage/venue, are you kidding? If you're in a working band and you want to step up your game, definitely look into this line of PA equipment. Overall: I was a little reluctant to leap into this mixer purchase at first so I looked up some independent reviews and the features blew me away, so I went for it. I got the M20d and a pair of the matching Line 6 3-way powered speakers (using my own subs). Setting up the mixer scene was very simple, the mixer guides you through the inputs, EQs, effects, etc.- no guesswork involved. The quick tweak feature saves a lot of time when dialing in your settings. But the proof is in the pudding, right? So we used it for a gig the day after it arrived. The sound is super clean, feedback suppression is right on, the DSPs are pro quality, and the auto trim feature puts the cherry on top! Not to mention the fact that with an SD card we recorded an entire live show, on separate tracks, to mix/master it on the DAW in the studio. And the iPad provided a means to listen to the house mix from various points in the club. The only discrepancies I can think of with this unit is that there are only 12 XLR inputs (which can be remedied by using a separate drum mixer and a bus input), and only 4 monitor sends. When it comes down to the sound, the ease of use, the full iPad controls, the effects, and the crowd response, this unit delivers the goods. You'll easily see where the extra money went!
Style of Music: Rock, Metal, Blues, whatever..
