  1. I recorded all inputs for the whole show and spent a most productive two hours tweaking and saving a better mix. I just can't get over the separation that the presets give you. Best live mixer I have ever used. The channel solos did notwork as I expected. Is it possible that they only go to the headphone buss?
  2. I guess our problems were different. My switch would eventually engage, or disengage depending how many times i pressed it. The contact cleaner worked well. No problems for the past few gigs and many rehearsals. I have not taken the mechanisms apart, but can vouch for the contact cleaner from the top method if your switch is working intermittently. J
  3. Just wanted to say... :) We played our first gig with the M20D, Easiest setup I ever had. I set all inputs before. Did the auto trim thing, did a quick mix and then done. It should be even easier next time. Everyone raved about the sound. The presets definitely are excellent at separating all of the elements. Wow, that is great gear. I got the wifi to work right away with an old iPad, the USB-Ethernet and an ancient wifi router that serves DCHP. Everything exactly as advertised. No wonder I have so much line 6 gear. It is rare to find gear that exactly does what you want. Excellent job Line 6. Hope it works for many years. Cheers, Jim
  4. Cool. We have 8 outs on the TD30. I think someone who hits things and counts has to much to worry about than setting the levels of the kit. :) We have done several gigs with the Roland VDrums. It is really awesome to have drums with a volume knob. I have setup initially as Kick Snare HH and Ride and will use stereo directs for Toms and another for Cymbals. I'm sure we can get a tight sound. Cheers
  5. I was wondering which presets you use on your electronic drums? Do you use individual outputs from your drum module, or just the main out. I have to mix a td20 kit in a few weeks and wonder what others have experienced? Cheers
  6. Thanks for the comments.Your videos sound great. Equipment does not get in the way of your great performance in any way. I rented an M20D for a video a few years back and was impressed with it. We are looking for gear that will allow us to setup for a gig in the tiny amount of time that we are allowed these days between the supper crowd and the partiers so this should fit the bill nicely. I am always a little nervous with the newer electronics when it comes to sturdiness. Cheers
  7. Hello. Thought I would ask the group... there are a couple of M20D's in my area selling at a significant discount. Can anyone point out any common problems that I should look out for. I have browsed the forum and see there are some input issues, some over heating issues. I may just buy a new one, but my experience is you can have just as many problems with new gear as used. Thanks in advance for any helpful hints. Jim
  8. It was $32 CAD where I got it. I have used the generic stuff that you can get at electronics stores and spent the time and did not get the result. That price and the problem went away with no dis assembly, and I can probably fix it another 100 times seems an ok deal. As an aside, I recycled a used Peavey Bandit for shows that has major pot and switch issues. I have dis assemled and sprayed (generic crap) 4 times. One more with the deoxit and the problem was gone. It does leave some residue on the HD500 so have a paper towel handy. I have no experience with the brand you mentioned so I can't really comment. Good luck. The switch problem hopefully goes away for you. Jim
  9. Sprayed contact cleaner on the top of each switch, pressed them several times and voila! Just like new. PS Get the good stuff like DEOXIT. it is worth the extra money.
  10. Installed without a hitch. I did all the software first, then the USB and finally the firmware. Was not interested in updating the patches. I will check my patches in the morning and ensure the sounds are normalized, then test the global equalizer. Then get the new amp models installed and dive into programming with the new models. Many thanks to Line 6 for this update. Your continued support is much appreciated. Jim
  11. Thought I would share... I move my HD-500 all the time and wanted it protected, and also easily set up. After scouring the internet for solutions, I decided to get a flight case. I order this model: http://www.rondomusic.com/product7514.html It does add to weight, but being pre-wired it is only two cables from operational. Please do your diligence and check measurements before ordering as specs may have changed. So far so good. In order to gain access to all of the rear jacks and outputs, I determined that the floor needed to be raised by 1/2 inch. I bought 5/8 plywood and cut it to the shape of the case. The final shape of the plywood floor had to be planed to ensure a secure fit. I painted it black and drilled holes to fit the rubber feet. The unit is secured with velcro tape. I installed a power bar with a detachable power chord and my G30 using the same velcro tape and used cable grommets to secure cabling. Results have been fantastic. I am portable, I only take the guitar and HD500 for rehearsals and add an amp when we do shows where i need a stage source. Been very pleased and hope this helps someone. Here are some pics.

  13. It would be most excellent if we could have separate output types assigned to separate outputs i.e. have direct set to the xlr output and 412 set to the 1/4"outputs allowing us to send full range to the xlr.
  14. I will buy it all just to encourage further development, and to enjoy even more line 6 modelling awesomeness!
