T8S Analog vs Digital Connection to L1 Model 1S and Model II

ST
Some people have expressed concern because the T8S ToneMatch mixer does not have ToneMatch (digital) connections to L1 Model 1S and L1 Model II. I've taken the time to test this carefully. To my ears, there is no audible difference between the digital and the analog connections. The background and some notes about how I tested follow below. The best way I know to detect differences in sound is to do an A/B switch back and forth instantly. Even a few seconds between listening events can lead...Read More...
So....I have been using BOSE for years now in my show so I am willing to test this out. I have one on order but will keep my two Tonematch mixers until I can confirm, the analog out is as good as the digital. I played last night at a very quiet intimate venue and my system sounded like you were listening to a record....so cool.Read More...

USB wireless mics with T4S ToneMatch mixer

I actually have a question about the T4 . I have a pair of USB wireless mics. Could one use the USB port as a mic channel?Read More...
Hi Danny, I don't think that will work. I have a USB gaming headset (the closest thing I have to a USB microphone). The T4S and T8S report a USB Media Error when I connect it. This isn't a surprise though. When making USB connections there's usually a Master (the computer) and a Slave (the USB device - microphone, USB interface (like the T4S), printer....) You can't connect two Slaves. Sorry I don't have better news for you. STRead More...

T1 Input 2 not working

Hey all! Well, simple issue here: Input #2 in my T1 mixer isn't working. There's a very faint "hiss" and a tiny amount of response, but it's very faint. This happens with both the 1/4" input and the XLR jack. I really need this mixer to work by March 3rd and am wondering if anyone else has had this issue, and/or what steps can be taken to address it. Thank you so much. -JimRead More...
Hi Jim, Yes, the hours are valid - but it sounds like they may have been out for an all-company event. Please try them in the morning. Sorry about that. STRead More...

T8S ToneMatch® mixer on a microphone stand

ST
I cobbled together some bits and pieces and came up with this arrangement for the T8S ToneMatch mixer on a microphone stand. I wasn't happy with having the T8S attached to a bar extending out from the microphone stand. All the bars and extensions and tables drooped or sagged. So I put the T8S directly on the stand, and microphone on an extension. I'm thinking out loud as I explore these ideas. I'm not ready to recommend this approach yet. I may end up putting the T8S on small table or...Read More...
The first one I ordered showed up with NO tightening nut! They said, "toss it, we'll send another. I have spare parts now. I have only ever used it for my Zoom video cam. I can see why the T8S might have trouble.Read More...

T4S & T8S Mixers - 1/4 inch (6mm) Mounting Screw (Mounting Options)

Glad the mixers have been updated, but a couple of questions on them. Why a camera tripod mount? That seems odd to me. Can the T4S not mount to a mic stand? This also seems like they won't be able to mount on the L1s either. Also, I get that the L1 MII won't output enough power from the stand, but it should be able to connect digitally to them. Again, to me these all seem like odd exclusions/decisions. Hopefully one of the Bose folks will chime in with some answers.Read More...

Insufficient volume

Hi folks I have been using my L1 Compact and L1 Model 2 for a couple of months now and absolutely love them both, especially the L1 Model 2 with the B2, awesome!! I am using the T1 Tonematch with both systems. I like the mixer but I find that when I plug my Strat direct into a channel I have to have the volume virtually all the way up in order to get it loud enough to cut through. Would using a DI box help or is there something I need to do in the settings? Any tips would be appreciated. GeoffRead More...
Glad to be of assistance Geoff. You're welcome to any thoughts and advice I can give. That sounds more like it. That's what the trim is there for. If you have to turn it up higher for one thing than for another, then so be it. All pieces of gear don't have the same output level. That would make things far too easy. The main thing is that you can adjust the trim so that you get a useable signal level to work with. The only times that having to turn up the trim on inputs can be problematical...Read More...

Noise When Coming Out of Output Master on T1 Audio Engine

I have a bose L1 Model II system with T1 Tonematch audio engine. What I am trying to do is send a output signal out of master output of the T1 audio engine. I connected a stereo quarter inch TSR to the audio engine master output and the other end of the cord is a XLR which I connected to my sennheiser EW 100 wireless transmitter. I am trying to send the signal wirelessly to my video camera which has the receiver. Using Sennheiser EW 100 wireless kits. I tried several kits to make sure there...Read More...

T4S ToneMatch Mixer Input 5/6

Would it work to connect to ipads with a split cable to input 5/6? and can it be routed to a channel? Or can usb input be used for one ipad and be routed to a channel ? Edited title to facilitate searches: Previously "Input 5/6 T4S"Read More...
Then i can’t use the T4s it will be one channel short compare to the T 1 I hope a software update can fix some of this: Usb in signal should be able to route to one of the channels input 5/6 should be able to route to one of the channels And it would be very nice if the 1 to four channels was stereo using a balansed jack. If the T8 s had come whit master digital out i could have go for that mixer Seems im stuck with to T1 for now. best regards Benjo.Read More...

Difference between T1 and T4S

T1 with a di box?

Taylorman
I just purchased a lace mando pickup for my mandolin. Should I use a di box with the t1? I have a little background hum. I'm using a L1S w/B2 bass module.Read More...
I have only experienced grounding hum in two venues of all the many I've played. I use the LR Baggs Para DI, but interestingly, it is the last in the chain for me. Mainly for the ease of having it close at hand on my little side table. I use it for fine tweaking in the perfect acoustic sound from my Taylor. Both times I've had the hum I've been able to use the "invert" phase switch on the DI and it removed the hum. I've had this Para DI for a long time, and I'm sure the newer Baggs DI's out...Read More...

T1 Connected to Computer via USB, No Power

I'm trying to do load some presets for a guitar. I've done this before, without problem, but it's been a year or so. I attached the USB to the T1, turned on the power and it doesn't power up. I tried bring up the updater tool and it tells me that there is no T1 connected and to check the connection and power. I put my phone on this USB (different cable) and it came right up. The cable that I'm using is brand new, right out of the pack. Any suggestions? Thanks, DanRead More...

Tone match settings for Live Dj setup

What would be more accurate settings for Bose Tone match with Macbook pro and virtual dj software? Two possibilities: 1- with out a dj controller and 2-with dj controller. I have noticed connecting with dj controller it does not sound as great and with macbook directly connected to tone match sounds far better. Any ideas would greatly be appreciated. what to look for in dj controller? Any ideas would greatly be appreciated. ThanksRead More...
I never thought of this.. now the concerns are that there is only 2 usb connections in Mac book pro, most likely bose tone match will connect directly to Mac and I can use usb hub for controller and music flash drives. Thanks for sharing this idea I still have to try this out. Any ideas on controllers that have great sound card.

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...

Duplicating the Compact Acoustic Guitar Preset with the T1

Matt Wahl
Hi Friends! I just took delivery of my new Compact today. I'm so glad to have one of these again! I was messing around with a couple of different guitars today plugging straight into channel 2 on the Compact with the ToneMatch setting engaged. I really liked what I was hearing from both guitars. In fact, I think I liked the way the guitars sounded going straight into the Compact vs. through the T1. I read through the manual and looked at the webpage for the Compact and all it says about the...Read More...
Thanks again ST! The trim level is an interesting thing for me to ponder and like I said, maybe belongs in a separate discussion. Several years ago I was trying out an LR Baggs Venue DI. They have similar instructions as Bose when it comes to setting the gain on the preamp. I don't remember them exactly but it says something like the light should be into the yellow with no flashes of red or maybe occasional flashes of red. The interesting thing to me was that if I plugged my guitar straight...Read More...

Waiting For Reset?

Matt Wahl
When I hook my T1 up to my MacBook and open the L1 Updater I get a message that says "Waiting for Reset...." My only option is a button that says Exit. When I click on that the L1 Updater Closes. I have tried turning my T1 off and back on and I have tried my T1 connected to the Power Stand and on its own. Same result every time. There is no indication that it is doing anything. Any advice? Thanks! MattRead More...
Hi Kevin, I understand this is frustrating and I'm sorry. Thanks for trying another machine. It's helpful you had an iMac. This eliminates the computer hardware and operating systems as the sources of the problem. In all the attempts to make things work, did you try a different USB cable? If you did, then it's beginning to look like there's a fault with the T1® and it's time to contact Bose Professional in Australia.
