Touchscreen visual mixing environment
StageScape M20d features an intuitive, 7” 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 adaptor); 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 man 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 plugin-style interfaces, with discrete calibrated adjustment capability
Total Scene Recall
Save and recall a virtually unlimited number of stage setups, scenes, and channel DSP presets without having to go to Mars! 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.
