Tell us what instrument and microphones you use

In order to make sure we are delivering new ToneMatch presets that meet your needs we would love to gain additional insight into what instruments and microphones you currently use or plan to use with the L1(tm) system and T1 ToneMatch(tm) audio engine. I'm setting up this discussion as a way to capture this information. Please reply and let us know. I look forward to hearing from you. CraigRead More...
If it is in the budget I would try a Shure KSM9.Read More...

Karaoke Track Mixing thru T1 ToneMatch

Hi Guys - I am new to this forum and a novice at musical instruments such as Bose L1 family of products as well as any technical terms that many of you may be familiar with... trying to learn for sure :-). I would appreciate any pointers/guidance to the issues summarized below: Scenario: I have a L1 Model I System with T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine. I use my Windows laptop to play Karaoke tracks (via YouTube or equivalent Karaoke s/w player) and mix it via ToneMatch (using 1/4" TRS jack thru Ch.Read More...

Broken analog input (Model L1 1S)

My own fault, I tripped over the cable and cracked the plastic housing. Occasionally now I'm not getting a good connection. I've had the system for a couple of years so pretty sure it of warranty and i can't find anyone to work on it. I can do the repair myself if i can just figure out how to get the cover off (removing the legs seems to be the only difficulty). Can you help me out us the only answer to ship it to the repair center in Indiana? I really need the system 2-3 times a week so...Read More...

hiss on channel 1 with 1/4" to XLR from Alesis Multimix8 hard panned

Hey team, Just got a compact L1. Trouble shooting a hiss I get from my Alesis Multimix 8 to channel 1 of the L1. I'm hard panning vocals from the main out 1/4" from the mixer with a 1/4" to XLR into channel 1 of the L1. The instruments are panned opposite through channel 2 and sound great. 3 acoustic strings & 3 vox. Please advise. ZRead More...
It's great to hear that you were able to make great progress in dialling things in! A few more thoughts for you, should you decide to add an XLR PAD: a selectable PAD that offers a few different attenuation settings would offer more flexibility at a reasonable cost I recommend the use of a short XLR cable between the PAD and the Compact's channel 1 input as the PAD would stick out like a sore thumb creating a risk of breaking the input connector on the Compact! Please let us know how things...Read More...

How do I loop vocals using only one Microphone?

I have looped vocals in the past hooking another mic to my rc-30. But I have seen a couple performers loop vocals with there main vocal mic with L1 type 2 and T1 combo. How is this done? And does it cause a problem when I’m setting up a loop with my guitar while I’m singing?Read More...
Hi Edward, Thank you for joining the Community. I'm glad you're here. That's an interesting question and I think it boils down to: I used to have an Boss RC-30 and from what I recall, you cannot isolate the vocal microphone from the guitar or aux inputs when you create a phrase. Looking at the Boss RC-30 manual I couldn't see a way to do that. Maybe the other performers were using a different loop device. Maybe someone more familiar with the RC-30 will join the conversation.

Stacking Bose F1 Subwoofer

I don't know if this has already been posted. But I just discovered that the Bose F1 subwoofer is physically designed for stacking multiple Subs one on top of the other. I was just playing around with the sub and laid it on its side and notice something strange about the frame. Again like I said if this has been posted already please excuse meRead More...
Ok. Now I understand ..thanksRead More...

classic L1 failure

dancingdogmuse
Tonight I set up my classic L1 double bass plugged in all my stuff ,turned it on and started playing.( same setup same way I always do).Then 30 seconds into the first song a loud "clicking " sound started, it clicked about 4 times then the volume went real low then silence. I shut off the L1 then turned it back on and the same episode happened. All the signals going into the 4 channels were good. All the lights stayed either green or red within normal limits like always. I could find no...Read More...
For the life of me I cannot understand why any manufacturer supplies cables with "straight out" cable path for every application. Cables coming to the T1 ToneMatch inevitably stick out and then gravity pulls them down creating a crease point where cable enters the plugs. With right angled plugs fitted - all the cables hang down neatly from the T1 with zero gravitational stress on them. It's the same at the other end going into the L1 MKII powerbase. The Bass signal cable comes out with a...Read More...

K&K Pure Mini with a T1?

Hello everyone! Hoping that someone can help guide me to finding a good setting with my T1 for my Goodall Grand Concert with a K&K pickup. I've gotten "okay" results with the overall "flat" setting, but it's far from sounding really good. If it helps any, my attack is medium-light (in general). I play with a hybrid style, using a flat pick and my remaining fingers (short nails). I play all different styles; some jazz standards, rock, blues, country... whatever I feel like playing! Hope...Read More...
Hi John Seth, the forum seems to be a bit quiet at the moment and you've had no answer to your question. Maybe this will help you on your way to finding something that works for you. Whenever I've not found an "obvious" preset for a guitar I've gone through them all (not tweaking at first) and made notes of any that may work. This is the first selection I make. I then do a more detailed selection of using the presets that I've made a note of. This time tweaking the sound until I get the best...Read More...

Presets for Electronic Drums

wesearcy
I have a drummer bringing a Yamaha DTX532K electronic drum kit with a DTX502 module into the band. From the T1 preset list, I'm wondering if the "Percussion - General Overhead" would be a good place to start or if I should head to "DJ/Playback - Flat zEQ or High Volume Music" setting? Thanks for your help on this. ...WesRead More...
Right you are... go with what works for you. Since I am in control of the ToneMatch and I am playing the HandSonic, I can easily control the volume direct from the HandSonic volume knob. For me this is best as sometimes I need to increase volume on low sounds like bell chimes. I am in control of the mix and would probably do exactly like you, if the drummer was another player, to control the mix/blend.Read More...

Concert setting/way too loud for us, audience complaining of not hearing

Tried my L1 is for the first time live. A big room, but not huge - 180 people or so. Yet, to get loud enough for the audience, 1. the white noise out of the system was truly obnoxious, and 2. the sound was searingly painful for the musicians. We were five ft from the system because that is the space we had. Also had feedback trouble. But the main problem was - how are we going to stand how loud it is for us when we're in a space like that? (Which is why we got the system.) What to do? The...Read More...
In my experience there is quite a bit of volume to be had past solid red lights on the 812 tops. This is achieved with out the limit light coming on. The red lights seem a bit too sensitive... Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks!Read More...
Yes I like that. I will employ this tactic next time and measure my results.Read More...
