How are you using the Artistic Expression tools in your ToneMatch Mixer

Let's talk about these tools in your ToneMatch Mixer . How are you using them? Mod Delay Reverb STRead More...
Hi Mahesh, Okay, this sounds good. I was checking to see if there was anything odd in your setup that might cause problems. No cause for concern here. Instead of Tape Delay and reverb, try this for your vocals microphone : Digital Delay Time: 100 ms Mix: 15% - vary up to 30% Fdbk: 0% - vary up to 10% You should have better intelligibility and move the vocals out in front of the backing tracks. What do you hear? Do you like it? STRead More...

I would like one button that mutes all the fx on each channel like a regular mixer. We use it for our trio and all 3 speak so I have to be quick and mute all 3 channels together and unmute them together. It means I have no option but to put the 3 vocals together! One button please!!Read More...

reverbs are better with the updates, but still a bit to go to be as good as the original tonematch, reverb still adds treble to the channel, Also the trim controls on the channel give signal even at 0 level, however the channels are Crystal clear, prue clarity,Read More...

Steinberger bass guitar through a T8S ToneMatch Mixer (Preset, settings)

We all use Sennheiser 935s. We have to get right on the mike (almost touching it) because it quickly loses its effectiveness by backing off even by one inch! SO if you bring up the volume to compensate, it's going to be prone for feedback. BTW< can anyone help me decide the best setting for a Steinberger bass guitar through a Tonematch 8? It's not listed in the choices and has a subtle (but unique) sound. I have it set as Active 1 ever since we got the system. edit tags: Bose Pro...Read More...
Hi Catmoondaddy, Please watch the video on this page so you'll know how to install the ToneMatch Presets that Steinberger mentioned above. ToneMatch Presets - Downloads The video shows how to install the ToneMatch Presets on a T1 but the process is the same with the T8S. STRead More...

K&K Pure Mini directly into Tonematch

I've been running my Martin D18 with a K&K Pure Mini pickup directly into my Tonematch and get a great sound, but I find I have to set the gain quite high in order to get any real attack, especially when on stage with a band. I do a lot of thumb and finger picking and sometimes it gets lost in the mix. Should I be running through a DI pre-amp before plugging into the Tonematch?Read More...

Mounting solution

Hi, all. Thought someone might be interested in an alternative to using a tripod. I’m in an acoustic duo, TwoCan Jam. We are a nonprofit corporation and donate the proceeds of our gigs to charities. My playing partner always practice with a well-worn end table between us, and it’s become a permanent part of our stage set-up. When I recently got my Bose system, including a T8S, I didn’t like having a tripod on stage. So I bought the tripod adapter hardware on Amazon and found the little rod...Read More...

T1 ToneMatch audio engine reverbs...?

Hi all, Bought this unit recently, for live solo gigs. Been pretty handy and compact, have read a bit, fiddled a bit, set scenes and changed them.... A bit surprised to find the reverbs lacking any depth.. There are several to choose from, I dial in something in the rehearsal room and of course at the gig am generally looking for a little more, but it just doesn't seem to have any more to offer. Has anyone else had similar experiences..? I find I prefer the reverb on the Yamaha stagepas and...Read More...

Why did Bose remove reverb decay time setting from the new T4s

I have had the ToneMatch T1 for years and just bought the ToneMatch T4s because it was touted as having better effects and more functionality. However I am really disappointed that they removed the ability to change reverb decay times from within the reverb type category. I use this function all the time when I am playing because different songs have different tempos. That was one of the best features on the T1. It is not just a one size fits all in plate, small, medium, large categories. I...Read More...
Hi Donaldjon, Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community. Thanks for the great question. The decay time parameter is not gone, just expressed in a different way. First - have you updated your T4S to the latest firmware? T4S/T8S Firmware Update Instructions Bose addressed customer concerns about the reverb. T4S Reverb Time Parameter The T4S/T8S have a different reverb engine. The way the time value is expressed is different.

Reverb + Other FX for an outdoor setting

Hi, Firstly I just wanted to say what a great resource this forum is and the lack of trolls and negative comments is so refreshing (and rare) these days. I've been a more than happy L1 T1 user for approximately 10 years and counting. I don't like getting bogged down in details and I love just finding a good sounding preset for each instrument, plug in and play...beautiful! I've had wonderful feedback over the years on the clarity of my sound (both the PA and hopefully my performance!) but...Read More...
Great story and kudos to you. We use a touch of reverb but no more! It sounds wonderful. We have the same setup as you and the vocals are pristine! More is not necessarily better. It was a bit daunting going through the FX but after a while, I got the hang of it while using them judiciously and once I get everything sounding good I save the settings in case I go back to that room at a later date. Bose is a blessing!Read 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...
Hi Chuck, Yes, you'll need to get the remaining Cylindrical Radiator sections in line with the audience members ears. If you elevate the units, please make sure your solution is sturdy and there's no risk to people or players (well, players are people too right?) STRead More...

T1: Setting up with Acoustic Guitar with two outputs, and a looper

Greetings: I just purchased a Bose T1. I am a solo acoustic guitar performer. I have 2 signals coming out of my Taylor 810 acoustic. 1 from LR Baggs Lyric goes to channel 1 and 1 from the original Taylor ES system goes to channel 2. I then take the master output and go through my looper pedal, then a reverb pedal. The output of the reverb pedal goes to the house PA. I see other artist (who also has a Bose T1) say they take a line out of the T1 and go straight to the house...then they take...Read More...

Missing Knobs

Does Bose offer replacement knobs for the T-1? My T-1 has all the knobs, but there is a venue here in town that provides an L-1 M2 w/T1 and B1 or B2. Very kind of them to do that for the musicians. Unfortunately, their equipment takes a beating with so many different users. Two or their T-1's have a variety of knobs missing. I would like to be the do-gooder that walks in there and pops a few new knobs on there for the benefit of all the local players. it would make our music community...Read More...

T4S cut out after an hour, overheating?

Used my T4S with two L1 MKll's and two B2's today and wow - the sound was superb. We were outdoor on a warm day (27 deg in the shade) .... and all the control gear was in the shade. There was a mild breeze so our audience was able to sit in the sun without undue discomfort. After an hour the system cut out and we had to revert to a single stack and a T1. Having removed the T4S from the setup and turned one L1 system off - I looked closely at the T4S while a colleague of mine continued to...Read More...
The hottest I've had these working in and didn't fail was 33 deg in direct sunlight. I had a 6" fan blowing in at the front of each stand for added draught. I do feel that while not eye candy the silver reflective nature of the plastic does prevent heat getting to the powerstand. The T4S and T1 - were a different story - won't go there....

Correct hook up - T8S with QSC touch mix 16

Hi there Prior to purchasing the TS8 I was hooking my QSC touch mix 16 to a T1 through channels 4/5 because I still want to use Bluetooth wireless audio and control it remotely I still need to incorporate the TM16 so I have been going into channels 7/8 of the TS8 to the mains of the QSC what I have notice is there is a bad signal to noise ratio type sound when the analog trim is turned anywhere past 9 o’clock on the L1 model 2 i re hooked up the TS1 to the QSC as I had been doing previously...Read More...
Thanks ST the Bose community is second to none re communication & care factor there does seem to be some about going into the Analog input that is more noisy than say the 4/5 channel of the T1 for such purposes back when I first got the T1 L1 model 2 and was wanting to hook up the QSC TouchMix with the Bose you suggested 2 ways to do it and 4/5 was free of noise in that situation in comparison to the analog input hookup thanks very much for your help & verifiying 👍👍 JeromeRead More...

T8S & old ToneMatch

I presently have my band hooked up to the T8S using all 8 channels. I also want to use my T1 tone match for my drummer. I’ve run a balanced cord to my L1 Model II from the T8S as required. Can I also run the Cat 5 cord to the L1 Model II from the T1 to send it’s signal and supply power to the unit? This will mean two inputs going to the L1. Will this work and is it safe to do so? This would eliminate the need for a second power supply to run the T1. thanks John FRead More...
Hi John F, What T8S output are you sending to the L1 Model II? What T8S output are you sending to the L1 Compacts? What I've proposed below won't work if you are using the T8S Aux outputs. You'll need to buy a T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine Power Supply and then you can do this. Click the picture for more details This leaves T8S channels open for your inputs. You can connect a 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve output to the L1 Model II a XLR output to the L1 Compact (and daisy chain to the...Read More...

Composite Acoustics Presets

I loaded the Composite Acoustics presets on to my T1 a while back. I haven't used them for a while so I thought I'd revisit them. For my Legacy, there are 2 presets: 1. Legacy, saddle only Legacy, 50/50 pickup blend 2. Legacy, saddle/mic Legacy, pickup only I was hoping that using one of these would be outstanding but I've tried them both and really don't care for either of them at this point. Perhaps my lack of understanding is getting in the way. Does anyone have a more detailed...Read More...

Headset condenser mic

I've tried the new headset mic, but it's tricky to adjust and have a good sound quality. it feedbacks pretty easy, and "puffs" from nose and mouth are easily heard.

Yes, and the Limiter also, which solved the puffing issue quite well. However, the combination of settings is almost infinite and I always end up turning all knobs to there extreme positions :-) I'm searching for a good basic setting (if any..) from which I can move from in small steps..Read More...
