T1 tone match channels 4/5

Noel ·
Hi One the Roland Black Series 3.5mm TRS to Dual 1/4" Y Interconnect Studio Cable there is a red ring around one end . Does it matter which connection 4or5 on the tone match this goes into. Thanks

Hi Noel, Thank you for joining the Community. For the cable you've described, it doesn't matter which end goes in 4 or 5. How are you using your T1®? ST

Hi Weedsy, I'm guessing that you are referring to this text: Channel 4/5 is actually one channel with two inputs. Those two inputs are summed to mono. It doesn't matter whether you connect Left to 4 and Right to 5 or the other way around. Channel 4/5 is not explicitly labeled 4 separate from 5. All okay now, Weedsy? ST

Hi ST - if this is the case ("it doesn't matter which end goes in 4 or 5") why do Bose in their ToneMatch troubleshooting section give the advice to make sure in the case of poor-sounding playback from CD/MP3, etc, that the left channel is plugged into T1 input channel 4, and the right channel into T1 input channel 5??? More confusingly, the channels don't even seem to be marked 4 and 5 on my unit! Look forward to enlightenment . . . .

Thanks, ST - the one time I RTFM and all it did was confuse me . . . . I found out that 4/5 were summed to mono after I spent some time altering my iPad prefs to mono output, hence couldn't understand the specific channel connection instructions in p. 51 of the manual. Many thanks for the clarification - I'll go back to the old system; don't read the manual; and if you do - ignore it! Cheers, Weedsy

Connecting L1 with mixer

Scott ·
Hello, Just ordered my L1 Compact and am really looking forward to hooking it up. I have a Behringer Xenyx x1222usb mixer I'll be hooking up to this. Is anyone familiar with hooking up a mixer like this to the L1? I'm not exactly sure which input I would go to, and what type of cable would provide the best connection between the 2. Thanks for the help with this.

Re: Connecting L1 with mixer

Hi Scott, Thank you for joining the Community. I'm glad that you are here. Basically, you want to pan all the inputs on your mixer to one side (e.g. Left). Then take the Left output and run that the Compact Channel 2 1/4" connector. Set the ToneMatch switch to Line Level (down). We have notes here: Stereo Mixer to Mono L1® Does that answer your questions? ST

Re: Connecting L1 with mixer

as told by ST in another thread with an Allen & Heath Mixer, you use only 1 main out. The L 1 C will deliver only a mono sum. take a xlr cable to a TS or TRS jack. mono channels like mics panorama to left (using left xlr out). stereo channels balance to left, too (like keys or cd player)

Hi, Merryl, Thank you for joining the Community. This is the USB connector on the back of the T1® (yellow arrow). The RJ45 connector (red X ) is for connecting to a T1® Power Supply or directly to an L1® Model 1S or L1® Model II Power Stand. Connect the USB output to your computer with a standard USB cable like this AmazonBasics USB 2.0 Cable - A-Male to B-Male - 6 Feet (1.8 Meters) with an adapter like this Apple USB-C to USB Adapter Or try a single cable like this one.

how do I connect the tone match to my new MacBook Pro which only has usb-c inputs so that I can record? also where do I connect it from. is it the RG45 output on the back of the tone match? do I need an RG45 cable to connect from tone match to computer? Is that right? thanks!

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...

Re: Any ideas for neat cabling?

Seagullman ·
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?

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...

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.

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...

I've explained to them that other folk here on the Bose L1 user forum are discussing the same issue with cables.

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

Hi Kevin, Good to see you again. Summary: From what you've written and what I found about your guitar: Your guitar output is unbalanced. A good quality 1/4 Tip-Sleeve cable is all you need to connect your guitar to any of the T1® 1/4" inputs. The information on the website https://www.bose.com/en_us/pro...ch-audio-engine.html could have been clearer. I'll address your questions below. I tried to find technical details for you guitar. From what I could find, it appears that your guitar uses a...

Ah ok, I see! Thanks for the clarification! I guess the slight mis print on the specs led to part of the confusion and threw me a little. Nonetheless that's all good and thanks as always for the patience and time to read down through the queries! Guess I've only really realised that guitars give out balanced or more commonly 'unbalanced' signals - hence the TR instrument cable and yes you're correct it's is Fishman Pro-Blend Matrix system used!

Hi Kevin, We have an article Connect a microphone to T1® Channel 4/5 You see that you need an impedance matching tranformer. Please follow the link for more details. See the article linked above. I would prioritize and use T1® Channels 1, 2, 3 for vocal microphones. If I had other inputs like guitar and cajon, I'd route them to Channel 4/5 using the impedance matching transformer. Some people here have run two microphones into one channel, but the singers must sing at similar volume for this...

I frequently use a non-Bose manufactured Ethernet cable without any discernible issues for gigs where I need more distance between the T1 and the powerbase. As long as the Ethernet cable is properly constructed it should be fine. There is probably a guide line here somewhere that dictates the ultimate length the cable should be limited to but I find 10 metres makes no real difference. Dave
