best settings for electric guitar through a floor effects unit....

Hi - new here and new to the L1 - i played an acoustic duo on 1st use and we were blown away with the quality and how easy it was to get it sounding great - however, doing a seperate duo using backing tracks and a strat i'm struggling to get the guitar sounding decent - using a Zoom G3 effects pedal and i spent quite a while making - at room volume -what i though were decent tones but using last night the sounds at restaurant gig level - were pretty rough - clean tones especially - wouldn't...

Hi glen, welcome to the forum. Thank you for joining our community. First let's make sure you're not making a fundamental mistake which can happen to all of us. I'm referring to this "turning it up made it all sound sharp and harsh". Did you have the output of the G3 set to "DIRECT"as stated in the Manual? DIRECT: Use when connected to headphones or monitor speakers Failing to do this when using the Zoom G3 through a PA/Monitor speakers (in this case the L1) will definitely lead to an...

Hi glen, I've just re-read your post. You said: "using a Zoom G3 effects pedal and i spent quite a while making - at room volume -what i though were decent tones but using last night the sounds at restaurant gig level - were pretty rough - clean tones especially" It sounds like you were doing this through the L1, so if you were also using the Output set to "DIRECT" I would then suggest that you (if you have the chance to do such a thing) try making the presets (sounds) at gig volume. You...

Hi Glen, Thank you for joining the Forum. That's great. Congratulations on getting your new L1®. It sounds like you have a T1®. What model L1® do you have (Compact, Model 1S, Model II)? I just came across an article that might explain this. Why Does My Amp Sound Different At High Volume? Here is an excerpt from the end of the article. There's a lot of changes when you go from room volume (alone) to playing with others in a gig situation. When I'm playing in a duo or a group, we all try to...

That's some pretty interesting input ST. The Article " Why Does My Amp Sound Different At High Volume? " appears to be something like the "quantum theory of guitar amp tone". I find the " Then I might use the T1® zEQ to " try rolling the bass off. Maybe reduce the treble or presence a touch if things sound too shrill. "" to be good and solid in combination with the "Category: Electric Guitar, Preset: Flat E. Guitar zEQ" which puts the EQ range within the realms of an electric guitar. I...

Thanks Tony for your help with this. I do use a blank mini jack as you suggested. It's early days and I'm trying different things. I was kinda hoping someone on here had done all this before. I'll have to set up in house and try these settings , as you said, I've been setting this up using headphones and it sounds different through the T1. I think the secret could be with the volume levels at each stage , the pedal has various volumes as does the T1 so experimenting at home with the T1 set...

Hi weeo, Regarding the connection to the T1: and to which ST replied: This would be costing 2 T1 Input channels. I've just had a look at the Manual (ST's link to it made it easy and quick) and I noticed this: Normally this would mean that it's the presence of the stereo mini plug which causes the guitar amp simulator to be switched on (something similar to floor effect pedals or active guitar pick-up systems being switched on when a jack is inserted into the jack socket). What I would try...

Hi weeo, I'm looking at page three of the Boss ME 80 Users Guide. It looks like you want to connect the Record Out / Phones jack to the T1® Channel 4/5 to get the guitar amp simulator. If you are running from the Guitar Amp Outputs, you won't be getting the amp sims. With a cable like this. I would probably use this T1® Preset. How does that sound? ST

multi effects

Hi, just got a Boss ME 80 multi effects and although I'm quite happy with the clean sounds through the T1, the distortion sounds are not so good. Has anyone else got this problem? I'm thinking on using a small amp and micing it but that means more gear to lug around. Any ideas ?

Good, that's one problem you won't be having (and I take it that it works out of the Guitar Outs?). That's the only way that I can see to not be surprised/disappointed at a gig. The difference in sound as I see it will be mainly due to the L1 sounding different than the T1. But you're right about it sounding different. With my Dance band (top 40 kind of thing) after my first big surprise at how different my presets sounded through the PA I really did start to go to the practice room alone...

Hi Eddie, thanks for the reply. Please let us know how you get on. Every bit of info you can give us here may be of help to someone with a similar problem at a later date. Also feel free to ask further questions as and when they may arise. Nothing is for nothing. You should, however reap the benefits of the time you put in here. I've had to do it every time I changed my my system. (POD, POD XT Live, TC-Helicon VoiceLive3, Kemper Profiler). It's always paid dividends. You're more than...

Hi Tony, It certainly helps and thanks very much for your input. I guess i'll have to set it all up and spend some time with it , I've taken on board all the advice given, so the plan is to try them out and see how it goes. Thanks again for your help Eddie

T1 mic effects settings

ALAN ·
I have "gigged" most of my life and many years ago I loved the Watkins Copicat reverb/echo sounds we achieved on our mics. Is it at all possible to achieve as near to a similar effect from the T1. If so, what are the settings, as I have tried numerous attempts fiddling with delay, reverb, time, feedback etc , but don't seem to succeed in getting the sound I want. I use shure beta58 with my L1, model 2 and two B1,s
