Recording with the T1

DaveyCrocket ·
Hard Rain Falling Link Above I recently purchased a power supply for my T1 so I could record some music.

Re: Recording with the T1

I am using the Quiet Comfort 35 Headphones. And I would much rather monitor in the air, but the neighbors don't care for that when inspiration strikes late at night. The added benefit is that there is no bleeding back into the mic when recording. And yes, I am enjoying the KMS105 and the Helix. I tried out the Mic live in December... what a joy it is singing through it. There is no hiding any vocal imperfections, especially when the L1 delivers exactly what you are putting into it. But I...

Hi Dave, Nice work. That's a lot of sound you're moving through the T1®. Which Bose QC headphones are you using for monitoring? When I record I usually monitor in the air through the L1® but that's mainly because I'm most used to hearing myself that way (in the air through the L1®). It sounds like you're enjoying your KMS 105 and the Helix. Thanks for posting all your settings in detail for others to follow. ST

Hi Dave, Sure, I forgot about the neighbors. I have a mental picture of a photo you posted years ago; a big studio. I've got the Bose QC25 headphones and I've used those for monitoring. I understand that they are very similar to your QC35 except that mine unit doesn't have Bluetooth. Are you using a Bluetooth transmitter or running wired to your QC35? If so, which one. I'm looking for something to run with my Bose QC30. ST

Tried running blue tooth, and there is way too much latency... running hard wired, but with the noise cancelling on.

Hey fitz, Assuming that you don't have anything connected to the T1® Master Output (1/4" jack), you can try setting the Master Output to Pre Master Volume. You'll find details about how to do that here: T1® Pre/Post Master Please let us know if that helps. Thanks, ST

Re: Increasing gain while recording with Tonematch

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. Still, the only way I found to increase the signal to Garageband was to amp up the master volume to a level above what I would normally play at in my usual venue, a small Inn in Concord MA. My hope is to try and set my "live" volume through the L1 and also be able to adjust the signal strength to...

Increasing gain while recording with Tonematch

John Fitzsimmons ·
I have set up my L1 Model II to record Garageband on a Macbook Pro through my Tonematch. I am getting "pretty good" results. I am wondering if there is a way to increase the gain to Garageband without increasing the volume from my speakers to he house. My wave-forms are pitifully small in the separate tracks. Thanks for any thoughts on this!

Try connecting by USB. By passing signal through usb, you are sending digital information to your recording software, so it is relatively simple to increase the volume level of your recording without coloring the sound information.

I'll give that a try. When I recorded last week, the room was pretty loud, so I was a bit loud, too, which while not a good playing situation, it did send a good signal to GarageBand. I'll keep tinkering and checking the forum for tips. Thanks for your advice.

Recording performances with Tascam recorder and T1® & L1® Compact

DowntownJB ·
I sing and play solo acoustic guitar. I run both mic and guitar into the T1 for some processing and then run the T1 into the L1® Compact via a 1/4" TS cable into the second channel of the L1® Compact. I have a handheld Tascam DR-05 recorder which has a line in. I just tried running from the L1® Compact RCA outputs into the Tascam, and my recording was distorted. I had both the T1 and L1® Compact volume levels at about 12 o'clock. I had the Tascam input level set to "Auto Level". The L1®...

Hi DowntownJB, I think you'll get better results recording from the outputs on the L1® Compact than the T1® with respect to the distortion. The output level of the T1® is not likely to be lower than the output of the RCA jacks on the L1® Compact. And it's going to be more complicated to connect from the T1® Master Output because it's a balanced mono output. I'd use the outputs on the L1® Compact. Note: The output at the RCA jacks is controlled by the Channel 1 and Channel 2 volume controls.

Thanks ST. I think my mistake was to use only the Auto Level, which I think is intended for speech recordings. I'll try Peak Reduction and Limiter.

Hi DowntownJB, I've recorded many times from the RCA Outs on my Compact and always with excellent results. For this I've generally used a Zoom H2 but it theoretically doesn't matter which device you use providing you have the chance to set the recording levels manually. Using the RCA Outs also means that I can place the Recorder in the well where the carrying handle is so that it's out of harm's way. What helps when recording in this way is to set the recording level so that you have enough...

@splewis thanks for the input - pun not intended - on this one. I hadn't looked at the manual and thought that it would have a line input as my wife's Zoom H2 has. As it apparently only has a "mic in" you will of course need to attenuate the signal to prevent overloading the input. @DowntownJB splewis' advice here seems pretty sound and worth trying. I'd always prefer to record from a line out than try to use microphones if I wanted a decent recording without noise. Tony

Tony, great suggestion to play pre-recorded music through your system for a sound check. I appreciate all your advice about using the L1C live. @DowntownJB - I have a Tascam DR7-MKII and record every show I play. I have used inline attentuators (-12dB) by Harrison Labs to get the signal tamed to record directly out of the mixer's RCA out into the Tascam's mic in. The issue with the Tascam is that the input is a "mic. in" rather than a true "line in" so you don't have that -10dB pad.

Thanks @Seagullman and @splewis ! I will first see if I can tame the signal with level setting, and if that doesn't work, I'll get an attenuator.

Perform as well as record on MAC

Hello Bose Community, I've been a silent observer here and have learned a lot from the discussions here. I searched on the question I have but could not find any and hence my first post. My setup: Bose L1 model II T1 tonematch TC Helicon voicelive 3 extreme MAC laptop with logic Pro X Shure SM58 My microphone is connected to voicelive3 which further connects to tonematch 3 I'd like to record when I am performing for my audience. This might be a very basic question to many here, but I am not...

Hi Avi, Thank you for joining the Community. You can connect your T1® to your Mac laptop via USB. The MAC should recognize the T1® as Bose USB (or something similar). In Logic Pro, you should be to set the input source to Bose USB. For more details about the USB connection see: USB port on the T1® Does that help? ST

Hi Avi, Thanks for the additional information. I don't have a MAC so I can't test your idea here. You can try it. I doubt you can break anything. But it may not be possible to configure the MAC to use the headphone out for your backing tracks, and USB as the audio input for recording at the same time. This may depend on how much flexibility you have in the applications you are using for audio playback and recording. If you try it out, please come back and tell us how it works. Thanks, ST

Hello ST, Thanks for your response. So, I missed mentioning that I'll be playing some backing tracks from my MAC. The 4/5 channel on T1 are configured for taking input from my MAC. Is it possible that my T1 is receiving input from my MAC as well as it can send my vocal with the backing track to the MAC for Logic Pro to record? Thanks for your response again. Avi
