T8s Reverb issues - T8s Vocal quality

I bought the T8s new tonematch in October last year and even after applying the latest update am totally disapointed in the REVERB quality against the original T1 Tonematch. The version that I have on the T8s is v1.1.4. I have compared the Reverb on both the original T1 and the T8s using Plate - Medium set at 30% and 50% using Neuman KMS105 microphone. The Reverb quality is still not the same as the original T1 even after applying the update V1.1.4. The vocals quality is also much smoother...Read More...
Hi Max, These are the settings on the T8S T8S Global Reverb Type: Plate Time: 50% (this is 50% of 4.6 sec = approx 2.30s) Bal: 50% Channel Reverb Mix: 30% Bright: 65% STRead More...

T4S and static?

I recently purchased a brand new T4S mixer and a L1 S1 system with a B1 sub! So far all is well and happy with sound quality, although I have not yet had the opportunity to test the system at a gig situation. I’m a guitarist/singer performer and do lots of karaoke gigs. The issue I am having has to do with static discharge anytime I touch the top metal part facade of the T4S mixer where the volume knobs are only but not the center part where the display screen is? It is annoying because the...Read More...
Hi Blueweee55, Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. Welcome. Congratulations! That doesn't sound normal. Are you walking across a carpet? If so, does it make a difference if you roll up the carpet? Are you holding a microphone or guitar or anything with a wire when this happens? Do you have the L1 system plugged directly to the wall or a power bar? If you're using a power bar, please try a different power bar or connect directly to the wall. Does that make a difference? I...Read More...

Using T8S as an audio interface

Hi I am currently using two T1 units in live performance for our trio. I am considering upgrading to the new T8S and I was wondering if it will work as an audio interface with my MacBook Pro running Studio One 3.Read More...
@Willy Martin I was able to get Studio One to recognize the T8. Studio One will not accept each of the 8 channels into separate tracks. All 8 inputs are assignable to a mix going Left And Right onto a stereo track or two mono tracks. Would be great to record 8 separately wouldn't it?Read More...

Recording to Flash Drive

Hi Cowboy Upp, Thanks for asking the question. I'm sorry, the ToneMatch mixers don't have the ability to record directly to a USB drive. If this is an important feature for you, please add your thoughts to T4S/T8S ToneMatch Mixers Feature Requests Thanks, STRead More...

L1 Model II with new T8S

I've been one of those who wants more channels and it will be here soon in the T8S. I've read most of the post's for the 8 and was wondering is the fact there are more channels on the 8 the only new "stuff"? For example, how about more presets, i.e., I am an Korg PA4X Arranger player. One of the presets on the T1 was DJ, also no presets for the Heil microphones. Just wondering if any thought was given to more presets during the creation of the T8S? Edit title: Previously "L1 Model 11 with...Read More...
Thanks for the response. I did a firmware update two weeks ago. I guess I better check to make sure it it is 1.1.4.Read More...

Hi MUSIKaage, Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. Welcome. Try this ToneMatch Preset: Category: Keyboards ToneMatch Preset: General Keys There are several other ToneMatch Presets in the Keyboards Category. Check them out. Here's an introduction to the ToneMatch Presets, zEQ, and ParaEQ. You probably won't have to use the ParaEQ with your Kawai ES8. The video is based on the T1, but is equally applicable to to the T4S. After you've had a chance to try the different ToneMatch...Read More...

T4S and Garage Band - Output level

John S
Our church uses 4 L1 Model II systems. We have the T4S ToneMatches. We use one L1/T4S for the pastor's vocals. My question relates to recording the pastor's vocals in GarageBand software on a Mac. We use the USB B to PC output. We've found no controls to adjust the output levels to the USB B port. When GarageBand recognizes the Bose ToneMatch 4S, it disables the incoming level control or gain, and automatically sets it to minimum. We have not found a way to boost the output from the T4 USB-B...Read More...
Just for the heck of it; I plugged my USB out into my MacBook running Presonus Studio 1, and it is recognized, and when opening a "new song", automatically opened up 8 input channels, all named T8. I do not know if the input tracks Presonus opened up are 8 individuals inputs or just L/R 4 times. The timeline screen will not go into record mode. I had not intended to do any recording with the T8, was just curious what would happen.Read More...

Hi Cleverson, Please see these articles Add an Audio Input to Android Audio Recording with a Smart Phone That should get you started.

Behringer XR18 to T1

I hope this is an appropriate addition to this thread. I have been using an L1 model 2 with 2 tonematch untis for about 8 years with great success. The band has grown so I purchased a Behringer xr18. I used it for our first gig this weekend and ran the stereo output of the xr18 into channels 1 and 2 of the tonematch and then into the L1. Things seemed to work fine while I was setting up individual channels at home but then at the gig with gains set on the xr18 so there was no clipping on the...Read More...

Powering T1 from battery.

Hi there I have L1M2 B2 +T1 and S1 Pro I have a Behringer 1002B battery mixer for extra channels when using S1 When using ac power I prefer using T1 with external power supply over 1002B with S1 Is there a way of powering the T1 using a battery? I could use for example a 12v 4a/h SLA battery and pure sine wave 600w inverter to 240v then step down to 18v using the Bose power supply but it seems a bulky solution I see the pins on the power supply output are +18 v Rtn and -18v rtn so its not a...Read More...
Hi Everyone I understand the official Bose Position @ST I would never use modified sine wave because of noise and I do care about my sensitive electronics. Himlar a Bose does not appear to have an opinion on battery pure sine wave inverters, only modified, square wave (cheap) inverters. I do use a 2200W Pure Sine Wave inverter and a 60AH AUSTRALIAN made Thumper battery pack with L1M2 B2 T1, effect Pedals etc. The inverter produces clean regulated 240v AC Power just like mains. With plenty of...Read More...

T8S to L1 Model II - how do I connect

Hi hberube, That's odd. The default routing is USB B from computer directly to the master output. Please double check your routing options as described in this article: USB B from PC connection Sure, please tell us how that works for you. That's correct. The L1 Model II system status only applies to the T1 and T4S when connected through the ToneMatch port. It's not applicable for the T8S unless you're doing a firmware update to the Model II Power Stand (there's no need to do that with your...Read More...

Presentation and question.

First of all I apologize for the errors, I'm Brazilian and I do not speak English. Very happy with my Bose Tonematch T4S, I hope to use this week. One question for ST, my Ipad set to mono, P2 3.5mm plug for XLR as attached photo. There is problem with this connection or not.

Wireless transmitters

Hi, I have a Bose T1 Tonematch system and I want to have the ability to mix wirelessly. Am I able to do this and if so what are some some suggestions to wireless transmitters or iPad apps that are compatible? edit subject: previously "Wireless tansmitters"Read More...
Hi CityFolk, Thanks for asking. I can't answer your question in exactly the form you asked because Bose doesn't comment on products that may or may not be in development. Let's talk about the present. The T4S/T8S are engineered to provide a tactile user interface designed for performers for live, on-stage use. Wireless mixers are a different kind of product. Here's how Bose describes the T4S (and T8S) ToneMatch mixers. Please notice the emphasis on the performer's live, on-stage use. Thanks, STRead More...

Bad Hiss from ToneMatch T4s in Non-Bose amp

I bought the ToneMatch as the seemingly perfect solution for a multi-instrumentalist like myself. However, I get a terrible hiss when I run it through my Fender Blues Junior. The hiss is there no matter what settings are on the T4s...even when nothing is plugged into the inputs. Am I trying to fit a square peg into a round hole? Any ideas out there?Read More...
Hmmm...So I may have to attenuate the signal from the T4S somehow. I'll try the master volume idea. I'm running five instruments into the T4S: Ch1: National with Highlander pickup, CH2: acoustic guitar with piezo, CH3: electric lap steel guitar, CH 4: 5-string banjo with pickup/ukulele with piezo pickup.Read More...

T4S Aux 5/6 and Analog L/R Output

KyleT
Backstory: My band has eight members. My guitar player (Jan) has an (2) older L1 M1 Bose System with a T1 audio engine daisy chained together. It works great as a stand alone. I have a newer L1 Mll system with a T4S tonematch and I am attempting to put my system into the mix. I have most everything working OK but I am having level issues. This following is how I have it patched together. I am routing the XLR line out of Channel 1 of the L1 M1 base (Jan's system) and patching it into the 1...Read More...
Hi KyleT, Do we have 20 feet between the two L1 Model I systems? I'm glad this is making sense. No, Bose doesn't do trade-ins. You may be able to work out some kind of deal with an authorized Bose retailer. We don't do buy/sell in this community. Me too. Please try connecting everyone to the L1 system closest to them (like the colour coded sketch above). You may not need to connect system #3 to the others. I wonder if we still need the monitor for the drummer. He should be able to hear...Read More...

Trim and Volume

Hi Guys Last week I posted about issues with feedback using my Rode wireless mic, my post today touches on that subject. I did a gig last night in a nice sized club with about 150 people who kept the dance floor busy most of the night. I was using my L1 Model 11 and B2 with T1 mixer and I was debuting my Neumann KMS 105 which I have just bought. And just for the record the mic sounds absolutely amazing! I had set the trim as described on the forum and can announce happily that I did not...Read More...
Hi Geoff, Glad the new mic worked out. In case you weren’t already aware, once you get all your T1 settings the way you like, remember you can create/save your settings in a “scene” that you can then recall and have everything set in one click. There are a few settings that a T1 scene doesn’t keep like phantom power and master volume, but that’s not a big deal. See this forum entry for some good tips on scenes. As your experience grows and you make adjustments to the baseline scene, you...Read More...

Combining L1 model S and L1 Compact

Hi - I do voice acting and narration with playback - which is large scale symphonic music and sound design. I have had the L1 model S with bass... and just got the Compact. Question: Ways to combine the two for medium halls to create the best mix of voice and sound. I was thinking of using the T1 tone match mixer... but have questions. If I do not use the mixer I can put the voice into one channel of Compact... and playback into the other and control/mix them better? - Than both into T1 and...Read More...

What are the people in the audience doing while you are performing? The make and model of all the microphones you are using How many microphones...Read More...

T8S carry case/bag?

I am expecting delivery of the T8S this week. What are you using to protect it during transport? I know it comes with a plastic cover, but so does the T1. But the T1 also has a canvas cover to protect it. It doesn’t look like the T8S has that. Why? What are T8S users using? I’m concerned about banging/scratching it up when traveling to gigs and practice. Is Bose planning to design a cover? I’d appreciate any ideas others have. Thanks, DaveRead More...
