Any chance in the future, bose would have a key changer to download to the tone match. I use karaoke, and the line audio that could be key changed would be a nice feature. I know these fancy karaoke machines have it all, but I use a very small CD+G player with a 5X5 screan that just plays the audio and graphics, no key changer. I have one, but it's just another thing to carry around. I play keyboard, the KN-7000 and it has the transpose on it, with the frequency changes etc. Just curious...Tks..Read More...

Hi Corey, Thank you for joining the Forum. FIRST - be sure to read my post above yours, very carefully. Okay - I'd try the Gibson Preset for the Hummingbird even though your Dove has Mahogany back and sides and the Hummingbird is Maple. I understand that other than that and the slightly different neck scale, these are very similar guitars. I happen to have two guitars that are almost identical in every respect except that one has Maple back and sides and the other, Rosewood. Strange though...Read More...

sun glare

Love the tone match.. have it attached to my mic stand... when playing an outdoor gig, the problem is that I cant see when the buttons are activated..the blue light is very dim... any solutions out there ?Read More...
Summertime Tonematch issues: yes, the glare in full sun is impossible, at times. Several solutions: 1- I literally purchased a canopy for myself after a weekly gig because I knew th problem would not go away. 2- Perhaps a devised shade tool could be brought to use while settings are being made. During the show, one couldtry to get changes down to the simple gain/volume adjustments while in action. i.e. - adjustments which do not require seeing the led.Read More...

Good day everyone! I've been a sound engineer for some 15 years now but am only just beginning to discover the Bose Tonematch concept for professional use.

Tonematch Keyboard presets

Hello, First let me say I am a VERY happy owner of a Tonematch and F1 systems. I am a gigging musician and use mainly acoustic guitar and vocals through the setup and I can't say enough positive things about both. Been using successfully for about 5 years. I am however not loving the keyboard presets for key sounds.... All of them, Clavinet, Fender Rhodes, wurlitzer etc sound dull and flat to me.. and not anything like a clavinet or rhodes, wurlitzer.... like not at all.... I tried adjusting...Read More...
Hi Adam, The presets on this system are more of what I call a 'blueprint EQ'. This means they're intended to allow the instrument or mic to sound natural (relatively flat) on our L1 systems, so that you can make additional EQ and external changes without having unexpected boosts/drops to certain 'unwanted' frequencies. You could call it a pre-EQ. I take it you've used a Clav, Rhodes or Wurlitzer on this system? Otherwise, I don't usually recommend using those presets, especially if you're...Read More...

Shure KSM8 Dualdyne

Hi there, Love my Bose L1M2 with B2 Bass Module and Tonematch! Just picked up the Shure KSM8 Dualdyne dynamic mic and it's wonderful. Curious if anyone on the forum has had any luck with the Tonematch presets and this specific microphone. It's a unique mic in that it has two diaphragms. Great for an even tonal response as you move around. Not sure where to start with ToneMatch presets though since there's no comparison with other dynamic mics. I plan to tinker, but thought I'd ask if anyone...Read More...

T1 Tonematch Preset Banks.

Seagullman
Since about 2008'ish there have been no updates to the list of Presets (or I've missed them). This seems to be as a result of people having left Bose and moved on. All well and good. What I can't understand however, is that there appear to be no plans to change this state of affairs. As Bose hasn't "shut down shop" as they say, I take it that there are still many talented engineers working for my favorite (small) PA Company. Maybe even someone who's retired could be made an offer to put in a...Read More...
Thanks ST. I am used to music equipment manufacturers updating hardware so the older models become unsupported but after all of my unbelievable experiences with the excellent Bose support I was hoping that was not the case.

Hi Dave, Thanks for posting the Peter Thorn video. That was really interesting. The ToneMatch® presets are about making a sound source sound as good as possible through the L1® equipment. They are not about making something sound like something else. For more on that, please see ToneMatch® You and I can use impulse responses with our gear (Line 6 Helix and Kemper Profiler). I think that level of processing will likely remain in the realm of content creation, outside of what Bose does in the...Read More...

What exactly does an instrument preset mean?

Hope someone can put me straight on something basic. I understand the purpose of ToneMatch settings to simulate different amps, speakers etc. However, I don't understand how they work in terms of sound sources. For example, I have an Ernie Ball Stingray bass. I suppose I'm expected to use the preset of the same name - however, what does that preset do actually? I don't need it to simulate a Stingray because I already have one :) Something I'm missing here...? Thanks.Read More...
