Any chance of an app for android tablets?
on 2012-09-14 23:24:39
And also for Windows tablets?

Also a native MAC application so I can use my laptop to control the SS.

I would like to know what the line6 guys have to say about this!
I don't like Apple products because they are very closed... I'm a open source entusiast.
I own a M20d and I would like to use all it's capacity without having to give money to Apple!

I second any request for Android products

I understand the nature of doing this kind of app development, and that an Android app would be a significant undertaking for Line 6. However, it really would be much appreciated since I already own an Android tablet and would love to not have to buy an additional Apple tablet to remote control my M20d! I suspect many M20d owners (or prospective owners) are in a similar situation. As Strategy Analytics recently reported, Android is rapidly narrowing the market share gap with Apple iPad: http://www.strategyanalytics.com/default.aspx?mod=pressreleaseviewer&a0=5167
However,the question is probably, how many musicians making use of the M20d are not using iPads? The general public might be embracing Android but that doesn't mean musicians in general do, nor the target audience for the M20d. Maybe I'm an outlier here. But I still would love to use my existing tablet for FOH mixing. Hope the guys at Line 6 will consider this, but even if it can't happen, it doesn't dim my love of the M20d.

more like how many people that drop 2k plus on the mixer (and who knows what on their speaker selections...)
would be too broke to buy an ipad.... just food for thought as i own both... and for many reasons like this, when it comes to phones and tablets the closed system works better.

Indeed. I just dropped a shade over £6000 for an M20d, 2 L3s' and 3 L3m's. Granted I ordered before the 31st December to take advantage of the rebates, but I am not about to use the £600 I saved on buying an iPad.
I do however have a Nexus 7 Android Tab winging it's way to me and so an Android app for the M20d would be rather good!

yeah it'd be nice for sure... don't disagree with that.

I agree. I would definitely prefer something other than Apple for my M20D mixer that I "own."

Congrats on your dreamstage. I think you'll find that being able to use the ipad during the show is worth the extra money it costs over the android. I have a blast using stagescape on ipad and the musicians appreciate the control I have over the sound.

I do not understand what would an iPad do more than a Android based tablet in this situation? It's just a hardware support for an app. Musicians and audience dont care if you have an iPad or a Assus Transformer, for that matter. I already have an Android tablet, so I am forced to buy another one for the M20d, which I find unecesary. I'll eventually get an iPad if there is not an Android app till my purchase of the M20d, and I find I can't live without it, but I'd rather not buy Apple stuff. Useless waste of money, which would be better spent elsewhere. I do not support their way of doing things (recent time behaviour) so I don't want to support them in any way. And Android tablets are already bigger sellers than iPads so they must be taken in consideration.

++++++ for android app. 2 members of my band alredy use android tablets for lyrics. An android app would give my recent purchase much more bang for the buck than having to go buy ipads on top of the $2k for the board.

At this time, only iPad devices are supported for remote control of the StageScape. As to whether or not this can be something in a future firmware, I cannot say either way. However, the more users request features like this, the more it increases the chances of those features being seen in the future. Feature requests can be done at the web address below:
