Looking at the m20d, looks very interesting.... and I don't own one (yet) due to money being too tight. But I thought I'd ask these couple questions:
I frequently mix bands which require more than 4 monitor sends.... for example, one band I know has 6 members, all of whom want a unique mix.
And of course, I have the main outs, but I really don't want short my audience to take one/both of the main outs as a floor monitor channel....
So, aside from setting up just 4 mixes (with 6 floor wedges) and telling the band to stop whining, are there any suggestions?
As a future product, I hope Line 6 will consider more monitor channels (10?) and more XLR inputs (24), to (sort of) compete with a Presonus 24x4x2.
For me, for mixing a festival, with multiple bands, we sometimes need more than 16 mics and line inputs just to simplify the stage change over time.
With a wider, analog board today, we use extra channels for some parts of band B & C (muted) while band A is on stage.... then minimal stage change over
happens to get band B on stage (mute A, and un-mute . This is another reason I'd like more monitors. Some times, its easier to spread the bands
out a bit physically different (put lead guitar A in a different spot the lead guitar B/C), or band B has more members.
Thanks in advance for your inputs....
