While we are waiting for clarification and for the link to be corrected to 1.2, I wonder if anyone knows the secret to saving our setups and personal presets and of course scenes.
When I did the update to 1.1 which was "almost" immeditately after getting the M20d, I tried to save all that stuff but after updating I couldn't find any of it. Now this far in, I have different set ups for different rooms and different bands as well as presets for my vocal mic and other mics that I use in my bands as well as my guitars etc. It would be a real setback to lose all that after updating.

*Note: Some presets may sound different due to system changes, and may require adjustment

Can someone please confirm that Setups created and backuped in 1.1 still work fine in 1.2? Or has anybody seen glitches with recordings or channelstrips on imported Setups? Would be nice to read some reports before I destroy our hard worked on Setups during upgrade
Is there also a new manual explaining new functions? Or at least an add-on to the existing manual?

Thanks Brian, I had followed those steps but my setups were gone and I think at that early stage, I just had setups and no presets or scenes. The setups are more important to me because I can load in a setup and it loads up all the channels and settings I need for my band to just plug and play. If it only saves presets. I'm physically going to have to a) from my existing setups create presets for everything that is plugged in, and then once I update start again from scratch loading in the individual presets to create the entire stage mix.
Now it seems to me that when I create my own preset, it actually includes trim and FOH levels. So while tedious it may mean that I can get my FOH mix back. The problem is... for which band and which room. I have a vocal preset that I named Kevin's OM5 and another that's named GR-55. I load in those presets into each setup for all 3 of my bands. But obviously there is going to be some adjustments in the level between bands. And sometimes again with each band from room to room, so the bottom line is I'll have to recreate the mix when I recreate the setups. All this isn't even touching the crucial topic of monitor mixes. If I create a preset for the monitors will it remember how much send from each channel? Or on my vocal/instrument presets will they remember how much send level goes to each monitor? Or am I going to have to start from scratch building monitor mixes. Now that I have gone to in ear monitors with each band, the monitor mixes aren't affected by the stage or by the room. So once you dial in a good mix, everyone just has to be responsible for making sure their output levels are consistent at the source instrument.
Setups capture all these important settings and are much quicker to load, even if you have to make minor tweaks in a new room, you're way ahead. So for me anyway it's crucial to be able to save them. I think these new features are going to be awesome so I'm going to update, but I'd rather know ahead of time if I'm going to have to document all my settings so that I can recreate them rather than find out after the update and all those settings are gone for good.

The StageScape firmware v1.20 (http://line6.com/software/) and the iPad app v1.20 (Apple App Store) are now available. If you backup presets in the system menu before doing the update and restore from backup afterwards the presets and setups are restored.
The updated user guide can be found here: http://line6.com/sta...-m20d/resources

This looks really awesome! I am really glad to see that we can put the fader level and the trim level in one shot. More for the meters than the faders. I like to be able to glance over and see those two meters. Even my studiolive couldn't show them both at once! And I admit, since using the M20D, and having the "auto trim" feature, I have not worried much about input gains since!
An awesome update....but...do you think a "monitor only" app will be in the works some day? And, possibly a better Media player as has been requested?
But I can only assume great things will keep coming.
A huge thanks to Line 6 for the ongoing development. From a very happy customer, who loves updates and looks forward to the next!

My first experience with 1.2
Excellent work !!!
This is a great and huge increase in functionality of the M20d.
Now it's possible to watch nearly all of the M20d parameters and levels (e.g. trim gain levels of all input channels) simultaniously.
For me and my band now it's the perfect mixer.

Backed up my presets, installed 1.2...restored my presets...perfect! Awesome update Line6. As with everyone so far, i really like the fader view. Haven't had a chance to try the artists presets...will soon...and really hope future updates will include more presets like this...
