Re: Microphone Settings for Shure 58

Hi Graham, Thank you for joining the Community. Best wishes for the season. Here are two short videos that cover basics of setting up a microphone with the T1®. Set up my microphone with the T1 ToneMatch® audio engine T1® ToneMatch Presets, zEQ, and ParaEQ Set the ToneMatch Preset as described in the videos. In the videos, we're not using the Shure SM 58 or Shure Beta 58, so when you set the ToneMatch Preset set it for your microphone. Start with all the zEQ settings bypassed as described in...

Hi Wes, Basically, yes. wrahn posted: Thanks for the two videos, it really helped me get a better understanding of the tone match settings. As I now understand, when I set up my Electro-Voice N/D967, it's as if a sound engineer set up my N/D967 using my L1 Compact and my T1 to give it the best "voice". Am I correct? Thanks, Wes We have an article that describes what the ToneMatch Presets do for you . ToneMatch® Check it out. ST

Would be great to see what settings anyone is using on there tonematch, My problem is the sound is too tinny, wanting to acheive a more melow sound. setting eg for: zEQ, ParaEQ, Mod, Dwlay, Reverb and reverb type. Any suggested ideas woud be much appreciated. Graham

Tinny sound is usually overcome by singing with lips touching the mic. The closer you get, the more bass response and warmth you will have. I do roll off 3-6db on the zEQ high frequency knob. I am sitting so close to my L1, it's necessary to keep feedback at bay.

I find the T1 presets for the Shure SM58 work just fine.

Shure KSM9 anyone?

jdbassentertainment.com ·
Hi everyone, does anyone have any experience with this mic. I currently own the Shure Beta 87a, Beta 58a, 55 Deluxe, EV N/D 767a and Heil PR20 mics... I am looking to possibly add a premium vocal mic. I am thinking about adding one of these to my tool box (if it's worth it). Would I gain anything compared to the vocal mics I have so far? How is it on a loud stage? - If I get one I am thinking about getting the HS version... Hyper/Sub - Cardioid Any input on the Shure KSM9 would be greatly...

How to connect two L1 compacts and a Mackie Pro FX 8 mixer and mic and laptop

Renemtaylor31 ·
I use jazz backing tracks to provide music for my vocals. What is the proper way to connect my digital Shure ULX Beta 58 digital mic and a Mackie Pro FX 8 mixer and my Macbook Pro. How do I decide if I need two compact units or just one?

Hi Rene, Thank you for joining the Community. This is a fun question: fun to consider I mean. Working backward: One Compact or Two? This depends on if you need your jazz backing tracks to be heard in stereo. How large are the venues where you perform (number of people)? What kinds of events (what is happening when you are performing)? Having rambled a bit, I have a very good friend who sings jazz standards with tracks 50% of the time and live accompaniment 50%. When performing with tracks,...

Thanks for your reply. What I don't know is what the difference would be in sound with the backing tracks in stereo vs. mono. I do have one other question with the T1 make the vocals sound better than the Mackie Pro FX 8 mixer? I'm not sure I would need to eq the tracks. I definitely need reverb for my mic. I feel as though I should purchase two to have in the event I need s 2nd one. Would it be better to buy one unit of the next models up or two up of the compacts? The venues would be 150...

Hi Rene, You've raised some great points. Renemtaylor31 posted: Thanks for your reply. What I don't know is what the difference would be in sound with the backing tracks in stereo vs. mono. If you don't have a preference, then you're probably fine with mono. It makes things simpler in lots of ways. That means that you can set up your system the same way for small rooms and larger venues. Simple. I do have one other question with the T1 make the vocals sound better than the Mackie Pro FX 8...

Shure KSM8 Dualdyne

dnallred ·
Hi there, Love my Bose L1M2 with B2 Bass Module and Tonematch! Just picked up the Shure KSM8 Dualdyne dynamic mic and it's wonderful. Curious if anyone on the forum has had any luck with the Tonematch presets and this specific microphone. It's a unique mic in that it has two diaphragms. Great for an even tonal response as you move around. Not sure where to start with ToneMatch presets though since there's no comparison with other dynamic mics. I plan to tinker, but thought I'd ask if anyone...

Thanks for your reply! Very helpful and also validating. We had a Brewery gig on Friday and I just kept the EQ flat>Vocal Mic to start and just ended up keeping it there (pre-empted your recommend....great minds) It worked wonderfully. Also tinkered a bit yesterday running the mic through my Grace Designs FELIX pre-amp before hitting the ToneMatch...whew - this thing sounds great! Like the new look of the forum here by the way! -Dave

Hey Dave, You've had some great input from Tony. This Preset is flat and it tunes the zEQ settings for vocal microphones. Also, take a spin through all the Vocal Mic Presets. You may like the Neumann KMS 105 Preset. Check out this article. Presets - Finding What Works Please come back and tell us what you end up doing. ST

Side note - I use the Neumann KMS 105 preset for my Neumann KMS 105 and it's simply magical (who'd have thought?) That's still my favorite choice for vocal mics. Simply have not found anything better for my live vocal use and doubt if I ever will. My secondary/backup singer loved the Shure DualDyne. He has a high tenor, somewhat shrill (in a good...

Hi Karaoke Niagara, Thank you for joining the community. Over the years we've had several reports from L1 owners who have found the Shure SM 58 preset to work well with this microphone. There was one person who used the Shure SM57 preset for some occasions too. ST

Settings for Shure SM58

Derek Jenkins ·
I use the L1 Is system with a B1 and Tonematch. We put three Shure Sm 58s through the Tonematch. I appreciate sound quality varies from room to room but has anyone any suggestions for a good starting point to set the Tonematch. I tend to adjust using the zeq and not use the parametric eq. I also add a little reverb, but don't understand enough to use compression. Appreciate any help anyone can give.

Hi ST, I've just noticed that we were writing at about the same time. You've given a pretty deep explanation of most of the things which can be of help here. Thanks for the link to the thread with the talk between Mark (Le5) and Lucrecia . I was on holiday at the time and missed it. An interesting conversation. Tony

Hi Derek, Nice to see you again. Here are a couple of videos to cover the basics. 1. Here's a quick video to help you to set the input trim for a microphone on the T1®. This is called Gain Staging. 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. 2. Here is a video to show you how to set the T1®...

Hi, Thank you very much for this detailed response. Much to think about and learn. What I am trying to achieve is the best sound I can get from the system, rather than address a particular problem. I was thinking that perhaps someone has set their Zeq and Parametric Eq to certain levels which I could copy as a starting point. Very often at gig you doesn't get chance for a sound check other than saying "testing 1,2 " through the microphone. We put the L1 in front of us which means we don't...

Hi Tony, its a great help, thanks very much. I placed the L1 in front of us because we tended to get feedback. This may have been because of the LR Bagges anthem pick up I have in my guitar which used a microphone, which I think may have interacted adversely with the my vocal mic. I have since replaced it with a passive system. I am going to try putting it to the side of us now and then try moving it behind us once I am comfortable with that. We play often in very small places and the column...

Hi Derek, We don't have any articles about using reverb or delay with the T1® but I did some hunting around. I found this article Reverb and Delay Tricks that covers some core ideas without getting bogged down in details for specific products. Get the gain staging and tone (the essentials) set up correctly before exploring effects. Have fun and please come back and tell us how you're doing. Thanks, ST

Hi Derek, First of all let me say that you appear to live in a very nice part of the world. I'm originally from the Lake District but did my own personal "reverse Brexit" in 1977 when I moved to Germany where I've lived ever since. I did however spend the odd holiday on the South Coast of England and for someone who likes boats and the sea, Plymouth is a real must visit place and your neck of the woods seems to be near enough to visit but far enough away from the "madding crowd". Lovely. So...
