Genius! this just shows: where there's a will there's a way.
Great job! I hope to get one of these puppies in the coming months (before starting up live performance again in June) and I was wondering this exact thing. I always like to have multiple purposes "use cases" for the gear I buy and I was kind of hoping to be able to use it in the studio a little more elegantly than the typical "one-off" type of recording (i.e., no overdubs).
I had previously thought that the M20d could be used as an "audio interface" device which would totally seal the deal for me in terms of having it provide two concrete uses (live vs. studio), but in the posts I've read, it seems that the drivers are not good enough or fast enough for this purpose. The latency via USB is too great. Hopefully that will change also...because then in the studio you would have true overdubbing capability simply by using it as an audio interface. I don't quite understand why, with good ASIO drivers, this unit wouldn't have adequate throughput for use as an audio interface. Firewire devices of similar nature have NO problems streaming that much digital audio down the pipe (but I realize they are two completely different animals with different issues to deal with).
Anyway...bravo for figuring out a way. You've inspired us all!!

This is very interesting. Good work !
You could use a computer to normalize your "Main Out" file for playback in the media player. Or you could do a workaround like this: In Deep Tweak view for the Media player select the "Comp" tab. If turn up the "Output Gain" parameter you get plenty additional gain and as long as you do not change the other parameters the sound does not change.
