Sending T4s channels separately out to external recorder...

Howdy. I'm wanting to run separate channels out from my T4S into my Tascam DPS24 recorder (to mix levels/master etc on the tascam). Specifically, in this instance, I have guitar going into channel 1 of the T4S and vocals going into channel 2 of the T4S. I can get both guitar & vocals to the recorder in one signal (via the T4s mono out into the tascam), but for some reason I'm not seeing how I can send the channel 1 signal (guitar) out to let's say a channel 1 in my recorder and at the...Read More...

Best Tonematch setting for Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster?

I am now the proud owner of a Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster. It's an incredible instrument. But it has me a bit bewildered on the best setting under Tonematch for the instrument. I am routing the signal through an Cerberus integrated effects pedal which includes a "cab" emulator that I can toggle on and off. Any ideas? Suggestions?Read More...
I too am a new owner of the Fender Acoustisonic Telecaster....and as much as I don't like how it looks really, I love what this guitar does, is, and how it responds. It really is that amazing and I'm pretty hard to impress to that degree just right out of the box. That said, I tried it first sight unseen using the same Taylor T5 preset that I use with my actual Taylor T5 through my T1 Tonematch Engine. Amazingly it gave me a very nice sound without tweaking much of anything. As ST suggested,...Read More...

Complete Novice Using Two L1 Model II for a Wedding

Hi there, I have access to two L1 Model II systems (both are L1® Model ll w/Microphone Accessory with B2 Bass, so I will have two B2 Bass units as well). I have no experience with audio equipment other than plugging in PC speakers, and I'm wondering how to best make use of these for an upcoming wedding (my own). There isn't going to be a DJ or any live music, just a laptop to connect to the speakers. We're expecting ~70 people at the wedding, so not enormous, but I'm wondering what might...Read More...
Hi Tommy Blanchard, Let's start off with one L1 system. Connect the T1 to the L1 using the ToneMatch cable. Here is a link to the T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine Owners Guide From page 11 Then use a cable like the one to which you linked in your original post to connect the computer to the T1 like this. Here's a video For more information see: Backing Tracks We can't assume that a microphone on hand at the church will work. If it's a Shure SM58 (a very common microphone), then you should be fine.Read More...

Two S1 Pros vs. Yamaha Stagepas 600BT for Outdoor Festival

I have just contracted to perform my magic show for an outdoor festival next week. The producer has a Yamaha Stagepas 600BT I can use or I can use my two Bose S1 Pros with my Behringer 1002b mixer. Which do you think would cover the crowd better? They're anticipating up to 500 people. I use a Sennheiser wireless system with a Que Audio DA-12 earset mic and I run my my music from an iPod Touch. My thought is that neither one is ideal for this setting but, since I have a choice, which would...Read More...
I agree too. I didn’t realize that you would be part of a series of artists performing that day. I thought it was just your performance. Still you might be able to use the S1s in some way, but you’re probably going to have to get in and out quickly so the less you have to setup and tear down the better.Read More...

Should I use one or 2 L1 M2s for speaking engagement? Mixer for 2 or 3 Systems?

Greetings, I have upgraded my video production business to include audio support. I recently purchased one L1 M2 w/B2 and have just found a used 2nd L1 M2 w/two 2B1 subs that appears to be in good shape as a backup. I've been contracted to provide sound support (2 mics: 1 lapel plus 1 handheld for speeches and announcements) for a retreat at a conference center. The room's dimensions are 40 ft x 100 ft with 15 ft ceilings. There will be approx 300 people in the room to include families with...Read More...
Thanks for your quick response! Top center of the 40ft short wall is where the speaking will take place, so the 300+ attendees will be narrow but stacked deep. No stage or risers. Standing and milling about on foot. Some with children would be sitting on the floor. One of the 100 ft walls is mostly floor to ceiling glass and the other is typical wall paper covered drywall. Today's walk thru appears to indicate that the lecturer will be maybe 5 to 10 feet center from that short wall. My...Read More...

Battery drains in two-three days

I have had my S1 Pro for about 13 months and I am VERY DISAPPOINTED in the battery draining. I charged it up Friday night - used it for 90-minutes on Saturday morning. It sat in the shop until just now, Monday evening and the battery is dead. This same thing happened last Friday AM when I went to use it - had it charged up two days before. I read that BOSE recommends that we disconnect battery when not in use. This is a ridiculous option. We should not have to unscrew compartment to do this...Read More...
Thank you to support. I called as you requested here. The lady on the phone said we are working on this issue and there’s no fix yet. I said yes I know that. But I thought it was odd for support here to tell me to call and to only hear the lady say we are working on it. So I asked twice that I would like a replacement she talked to someone and they are shipping me new batteryRead More...

T1 with L1 1s and B2 module - using Taylor ES-2

Taylorman
Been using the equipment stated in my subject line for 2 years now with my Taylor 814ce (with 2 AA batteries) and a Taylor 310 (with 9 volt) all prior to the ES-2 system. The sound has always been amazing, and have had numerous people express this. Just purchased a new Taylor Koa K-24ce w/v-bracing and the other guitarist purchased a Taylor 324ce w/v-bracing both with the ES-2 expression system...volume is decreased by 50% and when I turn up the volume on the Bose system-horrible feedback. I...Read More...
Hi Taylorman, Using T1 channels 1, 2, 3 turn up the T1 input trim. Set it so that when you are playing loudly, the trim light is solid green with flickers of amber. Channel 4/5 is for line level inputs so you will get better results with channels 1, 2, 3. STRead More...

RE: Does Tone match make a big difference and how to mix

Hi everyone first post. I own an S1 pro a F1 head and an L1 M2 system which is my main rig. I use a Mackey Profx mixer and hope to get a tone match system. Just a couple quick question how much of a difference does having a tone match make? Also I know NOTHING about mixing and generally just fiddle around half of the first set. Anyone have any advice in regards to mixing for acoustic guitar and vocals? I know its a loaded question but was hoping for a ball park idea cause I literally half...Read More...

Wireless Mic Experiences with L1M2

CityFolk
Anyone out there have any experience with this wireless mic adapter (or something similar)? It’s intriguing because you can plug in a transmitter into your existing dynamic mic and its receiver into your mixer. I don’t have any special long distance requirements, just tired of wrangling with cables. I’d never be more than 10 feet away from the L1, however, I still want quality sound from our Shure 58A Beta mics. Not sure if something like this would adversely “color” the sound.Read More...
Agreed, but the comforting thing is I always have my cables as backup.Read More...
