L1® Classic, missing R1 Remote and cable

ixtlan23 ·
Need help. Just Got an L1 Model 1 Classic from GC but it's missing the R1, and it's cable. I manage to find the Remote bit I couldn't find any R2 cable on the web. Where can I possibly find one? Thank you. Note: Created this as a new topic for @ixtlan23 -- Bose Pro Community Admin

Hi ixtlan23 Any 7-wire MIDI cable will work. You can purchase these from music stores which sell instruments and cables. Thanks, MattS-at-Bose

Added note: Just be careful not to get a 5-Wire MIDI Cable. The standard 5-Wire cable will not work properly.

I did a similar event but I had to mic a violin against a full grand. Would you have a chance to use a cardioid condenser clip on mic? I'd recommend that over a plain dynamic mic. A hyper cardioid pencil condenser would work as well. An AKG C1000s would be good for this. Several condenser can run off a AA or 9v battery. Any equivalent AT mic would be excellent as well. The Tone Match on the L1C is an SM58 preset, but yes it does work well on other mics too. For positioning, behind and off to...

L1 Compact for cello and organ

GLB Productions ·
Hello everyone :) I have a recording gig coming up in a month or so which involves a solo cellist - amongst other works he'll be playing Marcel Dupré’s sonata for cello and organ, which has never been performed in Singapore before. The current plan is to use no reinforcement at all, as the venue is a concert hall. However, given that the hall is fairly large for solo cello (600+ seats) I can foresee balance issues when it comes to this particular piece, especially for those seated in the...

Thanks for the reply John - we had the production meeting today and the cellist was pretty positive about not needing any reinforcement so we left it at that Let me ask you something else, seeing as you have a great deal more experience than me in using the L1 products: how do condenser mics sound through them? Given that the L1s do not use compression drivers and the top end starts to roll off around 12-14K, I would think that this imparts something of a different character to the sound.

Condenser mics sound great on the L1. Yes there is a roll-off, but in practice, it's not missed. Let me explain, most venues, apart from open-air, will enhance higher frequencies due to hard walls, glass, etc. Not to mention, the actual instrument making the music (cymbals, violin, piccolo) Now, those frequencies are very hard to replicate even with compression drivers unless you're ok with some harshness. It's a matter of compromise, which would you rather have? Neither answer is right or...

Replacing broken control panel lid on an L 1 Classic

untabubba ·
I had a mishap and the "hinge pin" on the left end of the rear control panel cover broke off. I want to see about getting a new cover for the rear control panel of the Bose L1 Classic. (The oldest, large, round version.)
