tonematch volume problem

lola ·
Hello, I use the tone match with my L1. Last night I had an issue with the volume control on channel 4. The one I play my backing tracks through. My sound guy found that the volume level was going up and down. We have had similar problems before but they were dodgy input leads. Last night he changed them for new ones to eliminate them . He found the problem to be with the volume knob itself. If he kept his finger on it with light pressure it worked but changing levels was an issue. For the...

Hi lola, Both of those issues are a bit strange. The issue with the volume control does require service though, and we'll be able to take care of the sticking button at the same time. Please give us a call at 877-335-2673 to set this up. I'm sorry for the inconvenience! Nick-at-Bose

Tonematch AUX volume boost?!

Jocelyn Oldham ·
I've been having issues getting enough volume from the AUX out on my BOSE ToneMatch (with L1 model 2). Also, I read that you can't hear reverb in the AUX send? Confused then why there is this AUX option: "Pre: With EQ & FX: The signal is routed from the preamp stage with applied processing." ...if the FX can't be sent. Note: No reverb comes from the Aux output even if the tap point is Pre or Post. What other effect IS there on the tonematch? What am I missing? But my main issue is that...

Re: Tonematch AUX volume boost?!

Nick-at-Bose ·
Hi Jocelyn, Based on your description, I think the best course would be to turn the trim up on the channel, and then turn the channel volume down to balance out the volume increase. It's best to have the trim knob up as high as possible before distortion (as indicated by the red LED above the trim knob). So the trim knob for each channel should be set to this point - this may mean 12 o'clock for channel 1, 9 o'clock for channel 2, and fully clockwise for channel 3. All outcomes are fine as...

Re: How Do I Set Up My T1® for Backing Tracks (Analog)

Seagullman ·
Hi ST, that's another really informative video you've put out here.. I wonder how many of the "seasoned" users have actually thought about using the Prefs + Input Signal when gain staging. I must admit that I have actually done it (especially at the beginning as I was getting used to using/handling the T1). Mind you, I came from using a Yamaha AW 2400 so I was quite used to using digital mixers. I usually just set the Input Trim with the LED flicker as I don't usually have to run too hot a...

How Do I Set Up My T1® for Backing Tracks (Analog)

ST ·
Here's a quick video to help you to set the input trim for the T1® for backing tracks or pre-recorded music. This is called Gain Staging. This includes a look at using the Input Level meter. The same principles apply for an instrument or line level input. Set the source to the highest level that you will need during the show, and then set the input trim so that you get solid green, occasional yellow flickers, and never see red. ... more information about the T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine ST

This may be one of the most important video tutorials that you publish ST. It really shows hands on how to set up the EQ of a particular instrument starting with a preset, then zEQ and then ParaEQ. This should help many to understand what they're doing when setting up an instrument/microphone. Especially good was showing that you can bypass each of the frequency ranges (low/mid/high) separately. The only thing I'm really missing here is maybe showing the effect of the ParaEQ on an acoustic...

Gain is often overlooked on the T1, or any mixer, by less experienced users. It's not always as important for analog mixers as it is for digital. Digital distortion is much more unpleasant. If you think gain is too low for the band mix, just bring up master and channel faders to compensate. I would also like to add, for those who have powerhouse vocalists. Actually have them YELL or SCREAM into their mic while setting gains. Because once the band starts up, the singers will push harder.

I'm from Europe (the Netherlands), unfortunately no promotion for me. For now i'm testing the bose at different lociations with different setups (choir, open mics, acapella-groups). The T1 will mostly be used performing in churches and restaurants. As a pianist i'm into popular music and jazz. The model II is perfect for those kind of venues: finally i can hear my piano as it should be heard: natural, crisp and at a comfortable soundlevel. Love it!

Hi Rob, If you're in North America - there's a 10% promotion on the T1® until the end of December. Bose never talks about products that may or may not be in development. If you can use a T1® now, then get it now. Hey, if you have a couple of minutes, please tell us about your music. ST

Hi Fabio, Thank you for joining the Community. I'm glad that you joined us. I looked up your devices (links below). The T1® does not support the digital connections provided by your devices. You can use the analog outs with cables like this. You could connect one device to T1® Channels 4/5 and the other to T1® Channels 2 and 3. Does that help?

Using presonus USB audio box with F1

Charlie 3 ·
Hi, this is my first post on this forum. I am a singer who has used the Bose Tonematch with my L1 and now F1 system. I am now doing gigs where I need to use guitar effects and I wanted to use my MacBook for amp modeling, running my guitar through a Presonus audio box to the Tonematch. Problem is the sound once in my Tonematch is not as clear as when I use headphone straight out of the audio box. This is not good because the guitar presets in Tonematch do not suit my needs.

Hi John, Thank you for joining the Community. I'm glad that you joined us. One thing I've found with some guest singers is a tendency to back off the microphone. Whether that's inexperience, someone who is microphone shy, or stage theatrics, trying to overcome bad microphone technique by turning up the volume almost always leads to feedback. I coach guest singers to stay on the mic. If they back off I use sign language or just tell them to eat the mic. If they can't be heard, I've learned to...

Enough can't be said about singing ON the mic. I coach performers about this as well, over and over. Quite often, they will ignore my repeated requests. Like ST, I just have to let it play out with them barely being heard. One reason is probably their conditioning to singing with traditional PA, "let the sound man turn me up out front" syndrome. The other, and I was guilty of this as well, is fear of hearing yourself like you really sound. It can be a shocker, and I struggled, wanted to back...

Hi Charlie, Yes, I was suggesting that you bypass the Presonus if it's sole function was to serve as the audio interface. The T1® can serve as the audio interface too. I got the impression that all the audio processing was happening in the MacBook. You wrote, "The presonus is my way of getting the desired guitar tone via main-stage." What is "main-stage". ST

Re: Using presonus USB audio box with F1

I will give that a try. My only concern here is that it will cut my Presonus audio box out of the equation. The presonus is my way of getting the desired guitar tone via main-stage. I did create a work around by running the presonus into 1 of the 2 inputs on my F1 unless there is a better way. Thanks

Mainstage ($29.99) is an Apple program for the MacBook that is used for live performance. Not a slouch program... used by the pros... dirty little secret It is essentially a virtual mixing board. I can run dry guitar/vocals/backing tracks currently on my Mac through mainstage and achieve modeled tones out to my Bose system that may not be included with the T1. Obviously I am still in the process of learning the best way to get this to my Bose system. I think I may just run it direct to the...

Re: Using presonus USB audio box with F1

Hi Charlie, That sounds like Mainstage is doing everything inside the MacBook and not dependent on the Presonus. If that's so, then there's a good chance that you can use the T1® instead of the Presonus. Either way, it doesn't seem necessary to use both the Presonus and the T1® for your guitar. But if you are also running vocals, then you may prefer the T1® for it's microphone presets and effects. I have a Presonus interface that I use for other things, and I prefer the T1® for processing...

Thanks, but I am still struggling a bit to figure this ou. Maybe I should have specified that I am trying to record live while playing. I set it to pre-master out--and I used the default setting.

My hope is to try and set my "live" volume through the L1 and also be able to adjust the signal strength to...
