  1. It's the contacts to the case. Every input and output as a small metal contact connecting the ground to the case it self just by pressure. People are reinforcing this by soldering this contacts together and grounding them properly. See here: http://line6.com/support/topic/10197-no-output-on-the-left-side-until-and-some-questions/ Anyone with basic knowledge of electronics will see the problem as soon as he opens the case ;)
  2. Known problem. Its the grounding. Easy fix. If it's still on warranty sent it to Line6
  3. Only with the guitar? Did you try other sources? Some M20ds have problems with ground wiring causing some outputs and inputs to drop signal... It's an easy fix!
  4. 1 - Yes. Raise you levels slowly and don't send the signal to monitors and PA at the same time (or almost). Raise the level of the signal in one monitor, wait for the feedback reduction understand the frequency, raise on other monitor (wait), etc, raise on the PA,.... you get the idea. When there are multiple frequencies feedbacking in multiple outputs at the same time the FBR won't work. I approach it like any other system and ring out my monitors and PA one at a time and giving time for the mixer to work. The FBR on the M20d is nice but it's not magical ;) 2 - You are doing something wrong :P
  5. Nice! I had a different problem with my original mixer and Line6 was amazing and replaced it! Very good costumer service! Up there with the best. But my new mixer started to have problems with the main left and monitor A outputs. The warranty (for the old mixer...) as expired. I don't think the exchange for a new one under warranty would extended it... So, this fix will only fix the input problems? I don't have input problems... But maybe the outputs also have grounding issues. There was a fellow user on this forum that reported the output problem solved by resetting the ribbon connectors. My guess is that by disassemble and reassemble the case he made the grounding better by cleaning and resetting the ground contacts to the case. Makes any sense? I didn't open the M20d yet...
  6. I know! That was the first thing that came to mind... The question is, is it on a solder joint or in a plug? If it is on a solder joint, is it on he board itself or is it between the board and a wire? Or better still, a between a wire and the XLR socket? Because it may be very simple to solve by a local electronics technician... It would save a lot of time and expense in shipping...
  7. My mixer did exactly that last gig! I've lost the left main out! And this is a new mixer, I had a problem with the encoders and physical buttons on the first one and it was replaced. By the way, I LOVED how Line6 handled my first case. Top notch costumer support! But the unit definitely has some problems with quality control and reliability! It's a shame, because it is an incredible mixer. It has been making my life insanely easier since I have it. Apart from the technical problems of course....
  8. Yes. I do this all the time! Even in rehearsals I do it. I set two scenes, one with only vocals up and all the other levels turned all the way down. Then another scene with a nice mix for playback. So we rehearse one song (recording) and the simply change the scene and we all listen back to our disgrace in a very nice studio mix style way! :P I can say this is the most valuable thing this mixer made for us! Always record the sounds and listen back in the rehearsal is very revealing and made all my bands sound a million times better!
  9. Yah! I had a very serious issue with my M20d. And Line6 support was incredible! Very nice company to work with ;)
  10. You can navigate almost directly anywhere from anywhere! I don't see a need for a back button other than perhaps an old habit of navigating on another system? I know it's not the same thing but you can turn any effect on and off to compare it's effect to the unaffected sound.. And with the touchscreen you can boost, flat or cut frequencies on the EQ so fast that an undo function would get very little use in my hands :rolleyes: :D
  11. Hi. So I Have some recordings of past shows mixed on the M20d. Tomorrow I'll have a gig so I'm already soundcheking! :lol: On the soundcheck before the GIG everyone is always thinking about the dinner and there is never any time to really go deep with the tweaking. It's always just plug in, load some factory presets, adjust quickly with the quick edit mode, do relative levels and go dinner :( So I'm doing some presets in advance, listening trough my studio monitors and with a flat main out. Hopefully I can just get the PA sounding nice and flat in the room, load the presets and get nice sound with minor tweaking! All the recorded sounds were captured in the same conditions (volume), with the same mics and performing the same material as the presets will be used for tomorrow. Let's see if it works :rolleyes: :D
  12. yah! So you used the parametric EQ to find the freq and then went to the dynamic EQ! How didn't I think of that :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :unsure: :unsure: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :D :D :D Thanks a lot!
  13. Hi I understand the fundamental principal and the different parameters of the M20d dynamic EQ However I'm having trouble tweaking it to do just what I want: I want my female singer's voice to be nice and bright when singing low volume, so that it cuts through the mix. But I want to subdue some of the highs when she sings louder. My problem is finding the right frequency! On a normal EQ I just bring a band up and sweep across until my ears complain with discomfort, then I know I've found the offending freq and turn it down. What I'm looking for is a similar easy method to do the same in the dynamic EQ, so that I know what freg to compress when she's screaming! :rolleyes: :D
  14. FIXED!!! B) B) B) B) I'm glad to announce that Line6 is a great company with great costumer service! I've made video prof of my faulty mixer and the fail in fixing the first time. They sent me a new one in advance and sent UPS to collect the faulty one, so I don't have to spend any more time without a mixer to work with! Now, this is GREAT service! Thanks Line6, I will be talking good things about you for a long, long time :D
  15. Does anyone know what are presets "room1", "room2", etc...? Are they just general or are they designed to solve specific problems on common types of rooms?
  16. Find out whats the latency, set a nudge setting on your daw with a short cut key to exactly that time. Every time you record, select the audio clips, press the short cut key and they will be at the right location in time. Simple. That's how I do it in Sonar X2
  17. oh no!!!! It did NOT return totally fixed! Today I saw the encoder flashing blue again (just briefly). After a while the red LED on the "mute all" button went completely off and the board entered the "mute all" mode by it self. Had to reboot to get sound again! I have some important gigs ahead and I've lost the confidence on this mixer! Don't know what to do!
  18. It's here!! B) Even my stups and scenes are the same. Didn't get erased
  19. :blink: I would have to read or post VERY slowly to understand it :P :D I don't really care how it's done. All I care is if I spend 1300++€ on a professional product to do my job well. It better be reliable and I have to be sure I'll be able to use it in EVERY job I need it. Be it my actual unit or another one. I don't care. I just care about having Bad GIGs with bad sound when it's not my fault and when I've made the investment to always have good sound. Anyway, It was just one gig. Line6 was very fast and thomann as already shipped my unit back. I should have it for the next gig this Saturday B) Last gig was difficult. It took 4 times longer to sound check. And the quality was well below our current standard. We did it just with a behringer 8 channel mixer and no outboard gear. I sold all my outboard gear when I bought the M20d... So it was a very raw sound and we had to run the backline very low because we couldn't get vocal volume without feedback! We decided to go without monitoring to keep stage volume to a minimum and because the mixer only had 1 pre-fader aux. Only the singer used in-ear to hear her self. Good thing we play the same stuff for some time now and we don't need to hear that well to be able to perform... In short, the last gig sounded like a rehearsal, not a concert. The people seamed to enjoy it. But we couldn't book again as the owner liked it but was not impressed :(
  20. ok. just received an e-mail. My baby is returning home B) B) B) B) It did not take that long after all :D
  21. +1 from me! And one week of shipping is still better than 3 to 4 weeks from line6 service PLUS shipping! :unsure: :unsure:
  22. Packing now for the gig... Very worried about the sound on this one :mellow: Well... the good side, I never feel nervous anymore. It's strangely nice no feel some adrenaline again :lol:
