iPad Pro to T1® via Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter

ST ·
I've got my hands on an iPad Pro 9.7 running IOS 10.2 for a little while for testing. I went out and got the Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter and I can confirm that it works fine with the T1® for playback. Note: You lose volume control on the iPad. You have to control the volume on the T1®. You will probably want to route the USB from PC setting to Channel 4/5 so you can control the volume. See USB port on the T1® for details on how to do that. I tried it with Garageband and thought I heard...

Hi ScubaBadger, nice to "see you come up to the surface for air" (I couldn't resist that one after typing your name) . I use black velcro for my cables. It also has the advantage that should anyone nudge my mic-stand and the T1 should become dislodged, the cables hold the T1 and stop it from falling. The way I do it is to route anything going to or coming from the T1 from below the T1 fastened with velcro. My Microphone cable is only 1.5 metres in length therefore has only a slight loop...

Just a thought here regarding the mic-stand and whatever you fasten to it. The higher you fasten appendages (T1, iPad etc.) to the stand including microphone and eventual mic-boom the higher the center of gravity is, which makes the mic-stand more susceptible to toppling over if nudged. You amy have already thought of this, but it doesn't hurt to mention it anyway.

Hi MakinMusic, Here are a few of pictures. Click any picture to read related comments. The blue velcro straps are barely noticeable under stage lights. All the cables are as short as possible. I have loose plastic loops on the microphone stand to keep the cables close to the stand without having to strap the cables to the lower portion of the microphone stand. This gives me the flexibility to raise and lower the microphone stand without having to battle with any tight straps. -- ST

Yet more great tips thanks. Not previously thought of leaving cables attached to stand, I'll look at that. I'll also look for extra fastenings for further down the stand.

Hi Seagullman Glad to meet you and glad too that you're not flying over me while I'm up for air. Thanks for the explanation and image, gives me food for thought. As you're not running another piece of gear fixed to to mic stand it's impressive and I will certainly take on board the velcro around the cables next to the T1 for drop security. I had someone knock the stand over a few weeks back (on thick carpet) and everything survived in tact. I'm going to see what I can do with a cable set up...

Any ideas for neat cabling?

ScubaBadger ·
Hi I'm using an L1 MKII with Tonematch - the Tonematch and an iPad for my music content fastened to my mic stand. The consequent cables (including mic / audio feed from iPad to Tonematch / and Tonematch to powerbase feed can sometimes look at bit hairy. Does anyone have any good ideas as to how to minimise the visual impact of these in a simple manner? Is there a "down the mic stand "flexi something" to feed the cables or specific cables that make routing easier / better? Thanks.

Great velcro idea Segullman: I like the idea of protecting the T1 with velcro on the cables in case the T1 gets dislodged from the mic stand bracket. I'm going to use that idea. Thanks, MakinMusic

The thanks should really be directed in ST's direction. The original idea of using velcro (especially as a way of giving the T1 more "hold" on the mic-stand) I adopted from ST about 6 years ago when I got my first L1 (a Compact). He's given a link to that thread in the Wiki by clicking on the pictures he's posted. As in ST's last picture (mic-stand in bag) I also have my personal mic-stand wired up and ready to go, with bracket-clamp always in place. Saves time at the gig. I actually have...

Hadn't thought of it - but yes you are right - I will review the height of my rig and concentrate on getting all devices as low as I can from now on.

Ah, there's an option. I'd stopped fixing mine to the floor after having used some cheap gaffa tape a few times and leaving a streak of white tacky glue on several floors... Hard to find good stuff that doesn't do that these days - without some sort of loan...

OK - so on the cables thing - has anyone seen a cable with what I'd call an optimum configuration for connecting an iPad / iPod to the T1 - something like a right angle black stereo mini jack to two black right angle 1/4" mono jacks? Struggling to find one in the UK. My microphone cable (made by Planet Waves) has a flexible (hinged) joint that when it exits the T! does allow me to bend it downwards and get rid of most of the snag loop. The T1 CAT cable is soft enough to bend and get rid of...

So - back to the cables mess - I've found a cable maker in the UK and having explained the problem to them they've come up with a blinder. Here's my new cable from my iPad... This now connects to my T1 with similar right angle connectors... and both ends are quality Neutrik connectors in black. I've explained to them that other folk here on the Bose L1 user forum are discussing the same issue with cables. They've offered a discount for the forum - which gives 10% off which I think is kind of...

Hi ScubaBadger, Looking good. Thanks for sharing the link to the vendor. I have had custom cables made up by http://www.audiopile.net . They are in the US. ST

Asked the makers of my mic stand (Hercules, USA) for a price and availability of the stand clips. They gave me the part number and told me I could not buy from them. I chose a UK dealer I've bought from before (Andertons, Guildford), gave them the part number and said "how much". They came back with "we don't supply these".... which I find strange as a Hercules retailer. Anyone else know where I can get them?

Yes 90° plugs are cool. I usually use them on my guitars, but for some reason not at the other end. They're also good for pedalboards. That way you can keep the pedals closer together. Keep the infos coming Dave as and when you find out something new. Tony

Connecting iPhone to T1®

Hi Phil, I noticed your post in the Ask Bose for Help forum. Phil posted: just bought L1 1S B2 plus a Tonemaster T1 Question re T1 cabling for connecting an iphone for backing tracks -I am confused, internet search and manual are contradictory. 1.Why can't I simply use the 3.5 mm from the phone and connect to input 1/2 or 3 via a 1/4 stereo jack 2.

One issue is preventing damage to your iPhone by shorting L & R together with the wrong adapter. Same with your Passport. Another issue is getting good sound. A balanced input 1/4" uses tip and ring as plus and minus. A headphone jack uses tip and ring as Left plus and Right plus. If you connect two pluses to the plus and minus all you will hear is the difference between the two, instead of the addition of both, (like you want).

Hi Steve, The 1/4" inputs on T1® channel 4/5 are balanced. There's more about the T1® in the article linked below. T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine ST

Very interesting. Good to know that the 1/4" insides of the combo jacks on inputs 1,2,3 are unbalanced (I assumed that they wouldn't be)
