Touchscreen Visual Mixing


StageScape M20d features an intuitive, 7” full-color resistive touchscreen interface to get you mixing fast. The touchscreen displays icons on a stage that represent each performer or input, replacing generic rows of knobs and faders. Now you can reach for elements in the mix as you see them on the stage in front of you. A single touch on a performer’s icon gives full access to all parameters relating to that channel, from basic tweaks through deep effects editing.

Intelligence is built into every aspect of the StageScape M20d visual mixing environment. As soon as you plug in mics or instruments, the screen shows a Stage Icon Gallery that allows you to choose from a variety of icons, representing the most common input types and devices (male/female vocal, keyboards, drum kits, electric and acoustic guitars, etc.). You can use these icons to make a visual representation of the actual stage you are setting up. Need to adjust the level on the lead vocal? Just tweak the illuminated encoder that’s color-matched to what you see on screen. Want to pan the guitar? Just touch its icon and you have full access to all of the parameters related to the guitar channel.

StageScape encourages you to stay in the creative mindset of a musician. Using simple descriptors like “bright” or “punch,” StageScape enables you to quickly get to sounds that require multiple parameter changes. The innovative X-Y interface allows you to adjust everything with one finger — what used to be many adjustments becomes a swipe of the touchscreen. Instead of getting caught up in analytics, StageScape enables you to use your ears to achieve great vocal and instrument sounds.

Fader View


For a more traditional mixing experience, you can instantly switch to Fader View and use virtual faders to mix inputs and groups, FX returns, main and monitor outputs, and more. Fader View also enables you to mix monitor sends on faders for those “Can I get more me in my monitor?” moments. And when your singers want to hear reverb or delay on their vocals, you can send master effects to their monitors. Easy and intuitive, these features are typically only found on more expensive digital consoles.

Fader View is available on the StageScape M20d display as well as the StageScape Remote iPad app. For the best of both worlds, you can use Stage View and Fader View together. For example, set StageScape M20d to Stage View and your iPad to Fader View and bank through faders simply by touching icons on the stage. It’s a faster, more intuitive experience than you get with other digital consoles.

Auto-sensing Inputs and Outputs


From solo performances to full band shows, setting up for gigs is fast and easy. With auto-sensing inputs throughout, StageScape M20d activates each microphone or line input as soon as you plug in a cable and automatically configures a custom channel strip setting that includes essential gain, EQ, effects and routing. The monitor and main outputs work the same way. Plug in a PA speaker or monitor and it immediately appears on the touchscreen and output signals are automatically routed.


 

Control the Mix via iPad, Wherever You Are


The convenience of mobility has become integral to so many aspects of our lives, and the M20d extends that convenience to the stage. Connect one or more iPad devices simultaneously (via a compatible USB WiFi adaptor) for complete remote control over all mixer functions. Adjust the front-of-house mix from anywhere in the audience.

Each iPad can control different screens or different parameters in addition to the mixer’s own touchscreen. Whether you’re a band member adjusting your monitor mix or a sound man out in the audience, you’ve got full control.

With StageScape, you can walk around the venue with an iPad and adjust the front-of-house mix from anywhere in the audience. If band members have iPad devices, they can also benefit from this feature. Performers can manage individual monitor mixes from their locations, so everyone always has the mix they want. The dream of being able to mix from anywhere in the room is now a reality.
