  1. Hi, This must be a simple problem unique to me. Because I can’t find any info on it anywhere. I just purchased a HX Stomp. I then purchased a couple preset packs (definitely jumped the gun on that as I didn’t even have HX Edit installed). I now have HX Edit installed and working for me. But I cannot find anywhere how to download the preset packs I purchased. I have looked all over....I think. But nothing. I sure I am overlooking something obvious! I can see them in my purchases and there is an activation code there. But I can’t figure out how to get them. Thanks for the help.
  2. I was very annoyed with my G70. Drop outs. Updated and scan for best channel at every gig and still drop outs. I always kept it in my pocket. Like they say not to do but was never a problem with the G55. I finally purchased a wireless pouch for my strap and dropouts are gone. I still scan for channels but I am getting lazy about it because no more dropouts. For me, it has become a very solid unit. I was days away from selling it and going back to the G55. Glad I kept it.
  3. I didn’t know why they never have. We worked hard on this and tried to get them to through several post on their idea page. It’s been a long time since I have posted, so I’m not sure where that is now. But I do get email alerts from time to time. It has been suggested many times for sure. I would get some the day I heard they were out!
  4. I haven't been around for a while. Thought I would stop by and see how things were going. I traded my m20d in about 6 months ago or something like that. It is a great mixer. Made my life very easy for over a year. I wasn't looking do updates. What I really wanted was expandability. It was amazing with our four piece band. And using it with 2 l3s's, 2 l3t's, and a couple of l2m's made setting up, and getting almost instantly good sound in any room is something I must admit I haven't really seen since. It still amazes me how well all those units work together (speakers and mixer). I still have all the speakers. And I really like them and do get s good sound. But when it came to doing more live sound for other bands, and especially outdoors where you want 5 mics on just the drums, a stereo keyboard, a couple guitars and 4 vocals, etc, the outputs really got eaten up fast. Yes, possible, but limited for sure. I have gone with the behringer x32rack. Again, the m20d was great, and I never would have gotten rid of it if they just came out with a digital stage box that allowed more inputs, or something like that. And a couple more monitor mixes which I thought would be not too hard with their Link technology. But, I know nothing about what is under the hood. Love my line 6 products. Speakers, g55 wireless and xd75 wireless mic. Great stuff!
  5. Hijacking the thread a bit. There are a few options but the best by far has been a router, hard wired via ethernet cable to the M20D using an Apple branded USB to ethernet adapter. Then, connect your ipad via the router.
  6. You are right, I didn't test, but for me, I am almost certain it was because of all the 2.4GHz in the room. So likely not the same as your problem. It never happened when the venue was empty during sound check, just later on when the venue was full. Empty room - no problem, full room - dropped connection.
  7. I have been a big supporter of Line 6 M20D and the speakers. Have 2 L3s's, 2 L3t's, and 3 L2m's. Love them. Had an M20D for almost 2 years maybe and it was flawless. So have the speakers been. No complaints. But with no updates in a year, and no talk of it, and also having "maxed out" the board capacity more than not in the end, I sold it and picked up one of the new rack units that have come out. A few companies have them now, and they are as small and light, and even more powerful. I love it. And it sounds great through the speakers. But I do miss the L6 link technology. Two things will happen. Either the M20D is done (but still great for a small band), or they will soon "wow" us. I hope not the latter now that mine is gone!
  8. I have never had a problem connecting, but did go through a period of constantly losing connection and reconnecting. Using a router with 5GHz (airport express for me, but there are others) ended the problem. Good connection and stays connected.
  9. I personally waited for well over a year for such expansion. I agree the L6 Link should have the ability to do more. And so much has happened in the last couple years. I finally sold my board and replaced with one of the newer rack systems. It's great. I kept all my line 6 speakers. They still impress me.
  10. I have this as well. A reboot and the headphone jack works fine. Then, it eventually loses one side, and then both. Reboot...all good. Need to get it serviced I guess. Just don't use the headphone jack that much.
  11. That buzz when playing E F or D is a known issue and all of the speakers with the issue are to be covered at no cost to you, and they should not even be sold any longer in that con diction. Line 6 recognized the problem, and addressed it with a fix. You dealer should cover it with a new part from line 6. It is the fan if I remember. Do a search on the forum for the annoying buzz! Info there.
  12. I would get in touch with Line 6 right away. They will tell you where to send it. Sooner the better.
  13. It has better than a red light. It has a meter! Shows exactly where you are. Set it so it is just bouncing around the "0db" mark Try it! Sounds like you have already done it. In fader view, you can also set it to be one of the meters you can constantly view (I set level as the main, with inout gain at the bottom). I knew it was in the other modes too, just didn't know you did so I started with one way. I think you know what to do. Don't set it to hit the top (or side) as the clip. But wherever the setting ends up, as long as it is not clipping, then you are good right? It goes from nothing to a distorted clip. You will find it. Like I said, I set mine to line that would be the "0db" mark. I have lots of level, and a lot of headroom with the levels. I then set trim tracking to on, so I know I won't clip during the night. Works awesome.
  14. I set mine manually. At the top left of the screen beside the "Setups" box, there is a green "level" button. Press it and you can change it to "trim" (I think it is trim....going on memory here...but I know it is red). Then, your encoder knobs will set the gain. You can set the gain with all levels completely off. Just like an old analog board.
  15. That in the picture above my post, is exactly what line 6 needs to incorporate into the m20d. I don't know how...not my job...but I think I want one. Damn! I thought I was done buying gear for a while! I bet the line 6 speakers would sound just as awesome through a mackie board! I find myself doing more sound than playing these days. Would sure love more ins and outs.
  16. So with a singer yelling into the microphone, trim tracking won't affect the audible output. It will just make it "clean". Not distorted. The volume you set up in soundtrack, will be the same after trim tracking makes its adjustment. Without trim tracking, when a singer yells, it will be distorted. Just to clarify, trim tacking doesn't adjust the output volume. What it reduces at the input, is added to the output.
  17. +1! As well, would very much like the ability to limit it to monitor mixes, and even individual monitor channels. Not just everyone having access to everything!
  18. Pretty sure it is in this thread, or another one, exactly what was done to reproduce the rattle. I seem to remember a guitar with a loud F# or G? On the low E string would cause it at most volume levels. But scroll through this thread or the other one (search) and you will find it. I have been one of the lucky owners that hasn't had this problem. Or, over the year, I have not used it in the same way....which does include as a bass guitar cab, and a stage monitor with guitar and bass and vocals in it. So I am pretty sure I am safe! But I would definitely recommend what you are doing....test at store, because it is a known, and hopefully remedied on all being sold now, condition.
  19. I think this is hardware related. I had it happen to me. Funny enough, the salesman that sold it to me was there. Meh walked up and manually adjusted the gain on the speaker itself. For me it was my main analog outs, and aux mix A. I decided I would take a peek under the hood. After attempting to open, I decided it was going to be more than a quick open and check so I closed it all back up. And, everything has been working fine since. Not a good fix, and clearly something that will come to haunt me later. I have a three year warranty, so next time it happens, I will have it looked at. But likely same problem with other users having this issue.
  20. Yeah, just turn down the levels of each channel. Make sure the input gain is set where you need and all channels receiving "input" will be recorded.
  21. The front panel LED glows white when the speaker is powered, flashes red when the limiter circuit is active, and glows blue when receiving communication from StageScape M20d. On the back panel, the LED is gren when a signal is present, and may flash red if the input is clipped. That is from the manual, but I think it will glow yellow too when the signal is nearing clipping. If you aren't hearing any clipping when it is red, then I suspect something is wrong with the electronics in the speaker maybe?
  22. I learned something that may be of interest, or that you may want to tear as well. I find my scenes don't save properly unless I also resave the set up as well. If I load a set up (i play in a couple bands and mix sound for a coupe orhers, so my setups consist of different bands) and then load a scene (scenes consist of different venues for each band/setup), and then make changes to the scenes, they don't save properly unless I save the setup as well. So scene change, SAVE, then to the setups page, and SAVE again. Then I have no problems. As well, watch the effects to monitors. If you set everything up, and then power down and back on, and don't relaod the setup or scene you want, you will likely see some effects applied to your monitors. Just some tips that seemed relevant to this discussion. Hopefully all resolved with a new update. Line 6 is aware of these small, and minor bugs. But they really are "bugs", cause they "bug" me!
  23. That is horrible. I do understand the frustration....at least a little. I have had a few problems but no snow stoppers...almost, but m lucked out. However, I have been fortunate enough to not have the speaker problem and have passed my year mark of using them all 3-10 times/month. L2m's, L3t's, and L3s's. I hope they can address the problem much more quickly now that they know what it very likely is!
