Thanks everyone for the feedback
Took the mixer out again today and worked the scenes - excellent use for me - the open mic artists all had a second run as it was not too busy (it is still quite a new open mic we are building in Penrith Panthers Club) . The great thing was creating one stage with default setups and tweaking each performer depending on how loud/quiet they sing and their guitar style - plectrum attack is bright and cuts whereas many inexperienced artists that play finger style don't use their nails properly or have them cut right - so you end up with a muddy mess of misery around 200 - 400 hz. I was able to create scenes first time around and simply recall that scene when they did a second set - wow. How easy is that!!
I already had the MP3 working fine on aux input but will work on fine tuning with mute groups this week. Ta for info
I found the harmonica icon where you said - very cool thanks
Even found mandolins!
Tonight I setup presets for my 5 piece band so I don't stress too much on the night - may take it to rehearsal for a test run.
I ordered a wifi kit from my IT guy - hasn't arrived yet - but I just noticed only some are supported - oh well I will see what he has ordered for me and if it does not work I will use one from the list on the FAQ page ( I think he said approx. $15 AU which is not the end of the worldto get a second one if need be)
G'day from just down the road, Eliot...
You'll find the 3.5mm stereo "Aux In" jack between the "Main Out R" and "L6 Link" XLM connectors on the M20d's patch panel. A replay source plugged in there will become accessible (labelled "Aux In") as Channels 17 & 18.
It has been my experience that wireless headsets "tell lies", inasmuch as they almost invariably maintain their "easy listening" qualities by using multi-band processing prior to transmission. That technique frequently masks the very problems we're trying to detect !
...Now brace yourself, this may hurt a bit...
I would heartily recommend (and think it's well worth saving up for) the "hinge one ear off" professional (not the "DJ") version of Sennheiser's HD 25 II headsets, which have become the "industry standard" for critical quality assessment, ...on the basis that they are the ONLY ones that not only reveal an un-enhanced full spectrum of exactly "what's in the mix", (warts and all) but also provide almost total isolation in the face of PA levels.
When you take them back to the studio, you'll also find they're among very few "cans" that will "agree" with the accurate analysis presented by the finest studio monitors.
No icon for the "harp" ? That will see the M20d banned from Byron Bay. How can this be allowed to happen !
Line 6 Note: Eliot's brilliant idea for being able to import custom icons. If possible, do it in the next firmware upgrade. That'd be far safer than having a mountain man come a gunnin' fer ya.
Speaking of the harmonica, (this may also hurt a bit) have you or your harp player tried one of these ?
Isn't it lucky that you mountain folk are all independently wealthy...
Hey Ron - nice to hear from you - do you own the Stagescape? My music dealer was a little apprehensive at selling a piece of kit they had not even seen yet!!! I understand from a support perspective - they are total professionals and all due respect - but it makes me wonder this must possibly be one of the first Stagescapes in Oz????
re: Independently wealthy? Doesn't apply to all mountain folk - maybe for me has something to do with making a decision to stop working for "the man" 40 hours a week and working for myself 80 hours per week
I bought it after researching the presonus and Mackie kits - glad I went line 6 and took the punt....the pods and then x3 live I owned always treated me well.
Thanks Arne for the help
Glad you liked the mountains here - it is what drew me here too - oh and my partner who grew up in Canada and USA - in fact she went to school with and was in the same class as Slash from GnR
Anyhow - I have a funny feeling that due to the performance of this mixer you guys may be selling a few more locally in the days to come....I mentioned on FB that this is a game changer giving me excellent access to hassle free high res multitrack location recording !!!
I would guess that it will be most likely either bought by full time music pros like myself as I can claim it through my business as tax deductible and I know it will get used 4-5 nights per week or it will be bought by well to do weekend warriors with some lazy cash - because it aint cheap!! But then again when I weigh up my Neumans, Royers, Tascam DM4800, pro boutique recording studio and UAD tube racks nothing worthwhile in life or this game does come cheap! You get what you pay for.
My studio clients also know that I don't cut corners - they get the best - maybe that is one reason I am booked out 2 months in advance in a shrinking studio industry.
