Cover / Back Pack

Note impressed . Purchased my S1 in June so I am out of luck for the back pack. I am surprised the S1 did not come with a padded cover of some sort like the L1. The price for the back is unreasonable $175 US !! That is over 25% of the value of the unit. Bose pays a small fraction of this to have the back pack manufactured. I must be missing something ?Read More...
Second that Arriba AC130 bag, great quality bag and the price is right. fits great once the bag relaxes as mentioned and has a compartment in front for your cables. And it nice and compact so it doesn't take up unneeded space in my Highlander. :-)Read More...

Delete unused settings

Can I somehow get rid of all the settings that I don't need in "Scenes"? I hate to scroll through a dozen settings and look for my 5 ones.Read More...
Hi W. P. Anthony, On the T1, the Factory Presets are stored permanently in the first five positions. Unfortunately, you can't move or remove them. I understand it's a bother to scroll past the first five scenes, but there are only five. Maybe we're talking about different things. I'm talking about T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine Scenes Do you mean something different? STRead More...

Any experience using the TC Helicon Play Acoustic with L1B1?

Hello - I am looking into purchasing a TC-Helicon-Play-Acoustic-Effects and would love your input if you've used it with the L1? Currently, I am only using an RC-20 loop station, no effects on the guitar and usually a tiny bit of reverb on the vocals (12%-15% w/45% body). Any and all input would be helpful!Read More...
Yes. I use it with the L1 module 2 setup. It works great. Just take the two outputs from the "Play Acoustic" box and plug the, into two of the inputs of the "ToneMatch." I don't use a mixing board, but I am sure it,s the same.Read More...

Use T1 with an external effects unit (reverb, in this case)

I would like to use this external reverb unit strictly on the #1 channel (Mic) and not on the other 3 channels. How can I accomplish that?Read More...
Hi W. P. Anthony, Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. If you are using channels 1, 2, 3 and have channel 4/5 free, then this is easy. Set up channel 1 to use the Aux Output. Send the Aux output to your reverb unit. Take the output of the reverb unit and bring it back into the T1 through channel 4/5. Here are some notes about setting up Aux.

Selecting Audio effect settings between songs.

I am in the process of researching the option of purchasing a t8s tonematch. I presently have been using a Mackie 1604 VLZ and a separate effects processor that we control via a midi pedal to select the effects for each song. Is there a quick way of selecting the effects between songs using the t8s?Read More...
Hi zachern, Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. This is a really interesting question. The T8S doesn't support midi control. You have four Aux sends (every channel can be assigned to one of the four Aux sends). And there are two Aux inputs that you can use as Effect returns. If that sounds like that will work with your external effects, then the T8S could work for you. But if you're looking for a mixer that can replace both the Mackie 1604 VLZ and your external effects unit...Read More...

T4S Audio Driver does not work with iPad DJ app

AUDIO DRIVER. My DJ app in IPAD still can not map out T4 mixer just like T1. Wondering why other digital mixer like behringer, presonus, yamaha (any mixer with usb) can be detected and configured/mapped. Hope there is updated so the audio driver will behave like that of mentioned mixers. rolly wagasRead More...
Hi Rolly, I have checked with our team, and Bose is not using any proprietary drivers. All of the ToneMatch mixers (T1, T4S, T8S) rely on the drivers in the destination device (IOS, Android, Windows, MacOS). We can't offer you a solution at this end. I'm sorry. Sincerely, STRead More...

iPad connected to T4S/T8S via USB?

Just wonder what kind of the cable is needed to connect iPad/iPhone/iPod to Bose T4S/T8S mixer? Julian8023Read More...
Thanks ST, yep it works yet as I think you've mentioned somewhere else on this website, you do not have an access to volume control on either the source of the sound (iPad/iPhone/iPod) nor on the dedicated knob (it doesn't exist on T8S/T4S) but only via main volume control...

Battery Behavior

I have two S1 Pros. When I got my first one, I charged it fully and used it for several shows (I'm a magician and I use it for a vocal mic and background music from an iPod). When I finished my third show, it was down to flashing twice which is supposed to mean 25% to 49% battery life. I didn't use it for five days and then turned it on for a show. It was completely dead. I plugged it in and used it with AC. I called Bose to see what tech support would say about it because that's not the...Read More...
Definitely would be good to know more about the dying battery issue. Let us know what you find out.Read More...

T4S and T1 channels and audio driver

Just upgraded from T1 to T4S for additional channels and hoping audio driver is supported by IPAD. Additional channels: Seems no channel added coz 5/6 is not a dedicated one. It has to be routed to any of the 1,2,3,4 channels in order to be controlled, and worse, you need two channels to make it stereo. USB from PC can only be routed to main, aux, channels 3 and 4. We are losing channels again if we use 3 and 4 for stereo set up, while aux and main is ridiculous coz aux has no dedicated...Read More...
Stereo input is critical to my set up because not only I do One Man Band with backing track, I also DJ (main + pre cue), and Karaoke, all in my IPAD PRO. My DJ app needs stereo, even my backing track, and karaoke to sound better with my stereo powered speakers system. I think, T1 will work better for me for the meantime, even without dedicated stereo out, but with USB from my IPAD to channel 4/5 plus analog input (4/5) with dedicated control (volume knob) and processing (eq, compressor,...Read More...

How small can you go?

Whether it is age or back protection, BOSE has made it possible to entertain small. Yesterday, I did a gig singing and speaking with only a S1 Pro, mic and smart phone. Thank you BOSE!!Read More...
My S1 Pro systems are getting lots of airplay. There are plenty of occasions where being to run on batteries makes a huge difference. It's more than just the logistical standpoint (where's the power?). In an intimate social setting, being able set up and play without intruding on others' space is huge. Some of you will relate to setting big boxes on sticks and having people moving away or cringing and saying, "Are you going to be loud?". Most of that went away when we started using our L1...Read More...

Bluetooth on Aux input sensitivity

Please put this in the correct slot. The Bluetooth on the S1 Pro is too sensitive. It reacts optimally when the phone is set at about 20% volume. Industry standard for phones is around 70% for the phone setting. The 70% works with other Bluetooth systems. This really can get you in trouble in switching from system to system. Is there an adjustment for the S1 Pro to be less sensitive and uniform with other systems when using Bluetooth?Read More...

S1 Pro Backpack - remove the straps?

Mike in Texas
Curious - has anyone REMOVED the backpack-STRAPS? I will 100% NEVER carry this or anything else ON my old bad back, just haven't gotten up the nerve to cut the straps off.. They are sure in-the-way for carrying it like a bag. It is very nice, useful and well thought out, but I would much prefer wheels and a telescopic handle. MAYBE I'll search for a bag like that the right size and SELL the S1 bag.. Hmmm.. .. .. :-} Always thinkin..Read More...
I ended up going with an Arriba Cases AC-125 bag for my S1 Pros (I have two). The bag is pretty close to the size of the S1 Pro but the padding isn't too thick so I also purchased a custom padded cover. I put the cover on and then put it in the Arriba bag. It's a pretty good fit. I'm kind of picky so I, also, put a piece of corrugated plastic in the bottom of the bag to give it more structure. Here's the bag: https://www.sweetwater.com/sto...-arriba-cases-ac-125 . Here's the padded cover: ...Read More...
