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...

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...

Gear/Cables Needed for FB Live

Hi, just looking for some input on how best to set up my gear for a possible FB Live Session. I believe I have all the hardware I need but might be missing some cables.

Hi Fish, Yes. The T4S/T8S USB output is post-channel-fader (affected by channel volume, but not Master volume control) Yes - confirmed. For those reading along, the USB output is post-master-volume on the T1. That is, the USB output is affected by the T1 Master Volume control. Yes - this is one of the improvements compared to the T1.

T8s Master Volume control issue

Hi there. I have the Bose T8s mixer running into an L1 speaker setup. We have experienced intermittent problems with the master volume knob on the T8s. Here's the issue: When the volume is set where we want it, the mixer will unexpectedly get much quieter, seemingly for now reason. Then, when we try to turn the master volume knob, we just get a lot of feedback. Sometimes just turning the know causes the system to feedback, even though it appears nothing is peaking. It has been very...Read More...
Thanks for getting back to me! We just use one L1. We have been running our Mackie into the L1 and everything works fine. It is only when using the T8s that we have this problem. I updated the firmware when we first had this issue, but it's been awhile so I will try another update and see if that helps. Let me know if you come up with anything. Thanks!Read More...

T4S into PC

Hi. Sorry if this has been asked and answered but I'm unable to find the answer. I'm trying to record from my T4 into PC via USB. I'm using Audacity or Reaper. Those programs recognize the T4 but I see no recording input. I can use a Focusrite interface and it works fine but I'd rather use the T4. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks.Read More...

In & Out to Computer at the same time?

I've been running backing tracks through the T4S's digital input. I want to record the mix of that plus the other inputs. Would it work to send Master Out to USB while also using USB for two channels of in? Ideally, I'll use different devices for in and out. If I attach the T4S to a USB hub, can I do that? -->- recorder | T4S---hub+ | --<-- backing tracksRead More...
Hi Peter, "USB has a strict "tree" topology and "master-slave" protocol for addressing peripheral devices; peripheral devices cannot interact with one another except via the host, and two hosts cannot communicate over their USB ports directly." -- Source: Wikipedia USB This looks like you are connecting the slave (T4S) to two masters (recorder and backing tracks). I'm interested to see what you find. Thanks, STRead More...

How to Connect Sony TV to T8S to L1 Model II

Hi, Can someone please help ? I recently got a pair of L1 Model II Bass 2 with the T8S. I try to connect to TV but it doesn't have sound. This is what I did. From TV, Optical wire into Converter input. Converter Output is XLR to 1/4 into T8S channel Mono LR. I got XLR Main out from T8S, each to L1 Analog 1/4. I don't know what I did wrong but I get no sound. I even change the TV's speaker to PCM. Can someone help me to connect the right way? Thank you JakeRead More...

Connecting a Zoom R16

I have been looking at this d igital multi-track recorder and was wondering if that could be used in conjunction with my Tonematch 4s and L1 Compact. I guess the question is whether or not there is a way to incorporate the Tonematch effects into the recorder. Like instrument to tonematch to recorder to amp. Or vice versa. So if I wanted to do a guitar track on the recorder with the Bose tremelo I could do so, as an example.Read More...
Thank you all very much for the responses. I have spent most of my life with unamplified acoustic guitars so these electronic matters can be a bit confusing to me.Read More...

T8S lid vs T1 lid

troubador
With my T1, the lid slides on and snaps into place and cables connected with the channels can remain in place while keeping the lid on the T1. With the T8S, the lid is designed to cover the channel connectors at the back ... so with cables connected, you can't place the lid back to keep the T8S covered when not in use. To place the lid on correctly, you'd have to remove all cables that are connected - which is a pain. To get around this - basically to keep my T8S covered while not playing -...Read More...
Cool idea. A question about the cover when used in the standard way to cover the outputs. Always have a hard time removing it. Is there any trick that makes it easier?Read More...

Adding a mixer just for mic inputs

I have 2 L1 Model IIs and 1 T8s mixer. I need more channels on the T8s for instruments. Can we use a Mackie mixer just for mic inputs and then go out from the Mackie to one channel on the T8s so as to create more inputs for the instruments? Thanks JohnRRead More...

Can I use the Phantom Power in only one channel in my T8S?

Miguel Lobo
Hi. Maybe this is a stupid question but, I prefer ask, before cause any damage in my devices. This is the scenario: I try to use T8S for recording. Vocalist use a Shure Mic Super 55 (in Channel 1) but the Mic in Control Room (Channel 2) is a Shure SM27 and this need a Phantom Power. Can I use the Phantom only for Channel 2? Or, can I use phantom even if both microphones are connected?Read More...

Rack mounting the T8s

Hi, has anyone successfully rack-mounted the T8s? I would like to incorporate it at the top of a small unit with radio mics and in ear systems underneath. I am hoping to save time setting up/packing down at gigs by having a table top style unit that just plugs in to one power source (rather than my current process of plugging in many separate units/XLRs etc.) I see the base of the unit has a screw for a tripod but this wouldn’t be easily incorporated in to a standard rack mount. I’m...Read More...
Hi Kim, Thanks for your advice. I’ve now ordered some parts that will hopefully make this possible. The SKB R106W Rolling Compact Rig is the unit I think will best accommodate for my needs (both for the T8s at the top and six radio devices underneath). I’ve purchased a slanted top tray which I’ll drill a hole in, and then mount the T8s (with some thin rubber matting and washers for shock protection) via the tripod style screw on the bottom side of the desk. I’ll post some photos with links...Read More...

From t1 to t4

Scott Hanna
Hello all, I've upgraded to the t4 from a t1. Everything seems fine, but it does seem like I have the volume controls significantly higher on the t4 to get similar levels. Specifically talking about channel 4/5 with PC to USB, connecting my computer to my t4. I do weddings mostly. The other channels are used for mics, with aux for a backup iPad. Did not notice any difference for those channels. With my t1, I rarely had my channel 4(computer) control above 12 o clock. This past weekend, I had...Read More...
Thanks St. Yes, you've got it exactly now. I will do a check with both too. Just making sure I wasn't overlooking anything.

Had 2x L1M2, 2x s1 pro's for monitor speakers, and a compact wirelessly at the back of the room. 3 mics, computer, and iPad going in. Worked great with the t4s IRead More...
