Feedback / Microphone

ST ·
What is feedback and how does it occur? Feedback occurs when the sound from the loudspeaker (or loudspeakers if a microphone is connected to more than one) is louder at the microphone than the sound of the voice. This fundamental fact is shown in the figure below. Note that in the diagram an L1 system is shown but the same fundamental fact is true for ANY loudspeaker. If you understand this diagram, it is relatively easy to understand how changes in an amplification system and room can...

Re: Two X L1, one x T1

Thanks for that ST. That is pretty much what I thought, but it seemed like a reasonable question to pose in case my gut instinct was wrong. As for my typos, I'm not sure what happened there, but I do know that I was posting from my android phone, so anything is possible.

Two X L1, one x T1

Nick from New Zealand ·
Hi team, I have an upcoming event that's just a little big for my usual single L1/B2. If I run the first L1 the usual way with the digital connection out to the L1, can I add the second L1 to the analogue master out from the T1? Once I manually balance/match the volume on the analogue power stand, the T1 master will control both of the L1 systems together right? I'm aware this won't be a stereo output. Not sure I need it. Thanks!

Hi DJ Richard, I'm assuming you meant to type 81 T1® and cable network cables. We can't use an ethernet switch because we're not using ethernet protocol between the T1® and the Model II Power Stand. Here's a clipping from the T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine Owners Guide ST

Out of interest, are you able to run from T1 into an ethernet switch and then out to multiple L1s using Cat5E cables?

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

Re: How Do I use the T1® ToneMatch Presets, zEQ, and ParaEQ?

Seagullman ·
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.

Hi ST, glad you popped by. I'm sure your photos have done the rest to completely clarify the situation for our scandanavian friend. I hope that I'm still fit enough at 72 to swing an axe and sing. After a bit of pondering I came to the conclusion that Tony probably went into one of the inputs of channels 4/5 with his bass guitar (which would of course work and is designed for just this type of connection), and then the microphone via a 1/4" jack into one of the channel outputs which would...
