Greetings Line6,

 

Can anyone at Line6 give us an idea as to when to expect the next firmware/software update for the M20d?  It would be nice to see some enhancements, fixes, and perhaps some new effects and presets.

I would guess their likely response would be "in the future". No one likes putting even a rough idea on something like that. Cause we will constantly hound them when said date is approaching.

"We are working on it, and there will be one" is another likely response.

With all the suggestions that people have been giving you would think they would have updated something but no. Very disappointing.

My humble opinion, as a Dreamscape system owner since 2012.  

 

Looks like the death nail for the Dreamscape line, occurred when Yamaha bought out Line 6.  Yamaha has their own PA products, they didn't need the trouble.  They probably also had some idea, that the poor design of the M20d would eventually start causing many of the problems that we are seeing now, like intermittent sound, level changes, trim problems.  People getting shocked due to grounding issues. (the above issues taken from posts on this forum).  Better to let the products fade into obscurity, than to prolong it's life with a firmware update.

 

Users have been adding feature requests for the M20d for 5 or 6 years.  Not one was ever implemented.  The android app never materialized. Of course, they'll say that it was never promised.

 

The dreamscape products could have been a great line, but I'm afraid, their days have come and gone.  The rest of the life cycle appears that it will be repair work, and eventually, the dark recesses of basements and attics, or the trash heap.
