T4S Comp/Gate - can I pick more than one per channel?

KingBiscuit ·
So, I'm playing with the new T4 and I'd like to have a better understanding of how things work than I did with my T1. I read the wiki for the mixer and have watched videos, but there are things that still aren't clear to me. Perhaps starting this Basic Questions thread will prompt others to ask questions that will help all of us. I've got a feeling that I (and probably many others) don't use half of the tools available on this mixer. I'd like to learn more, and make the best use of this...

T4S and T8S stereo input

Luis Bejarano ·
Dear support, Having used the T1S for a long time there was a input 4/5 which I used to plug a mini-plug to plugs stereo cable, Now with the new model I'm forced to use two of the combo input connectors since input 5/6 doesn't have its own volume control knob. Am I missing something here? would a stereo mini-plug to single stereo plug cable fix this? and use only one channel of the console. Considering I would loose stereo panning. Also, is there a global EQ or room EQ for all channels on...

USB media attached but no files/folders shown

Dear support. A client is reporting an issue with a T4S, he had a 8GB HP USB drive that he used to play music on the T4S with no problem. Last week he has lost said drive and bought another HP USB drive of 32GB, he plugs the drive, "Media attached" message is displayed on the mixer but no files or folders are shown, he tested 4 more drives(from 4gb to 16gb capacity and different manufacturers) and one of those worked. Is there a special requirement for a USB drive to work on the T4S? in the...

How do I connect an LI Model I and an LI Model II, with a T4S mixer? And is it even possible, or a good idea?

DMC ·
I am a solo act, singer and guitarist, and am playing bigger stages now. Please tell me if purchasing an LI Model II is even a good idea, and if I can connect it to my Model I for a bigger sound for more people and bigger stages. And, in addition to buying the new Model II, do I need to purchase anything else, like cords or something? Please answer as best you can with PICTURES. That'd make it much easier to understand! Thanks!

Why did Bose remove reverb decay time setting from the new T4s

Donaldjon ·
I have had the ToneMatch T1 for years and just bought the ToneMatch T4s because it was touted as having better effects and more functionality. However I am really disappointed that they removed the ability to change reverb decay times from within the reverb type category. I use this function all the time when I am playing because different songs have different tempos. That was one of the best features on the T1. It is not just a one size fits all in plate, small, medium, large categories. I...

T4S Aux 5/6 and Analog L/R Output

Bad Hiss from ToneMatch T4s in Non-Bose amp

I bought the ToneMatch as the seemingly perfect solution for a multi-instrumentalist like myself. However, I get a terrible hiss when I run it through my Fender Blues Junior.

T4S and static?

I recently purchased a brand new T4S mixer and a L1 S1 system with a B1 sub! So far all is well and happy with sound quality, although I have not yet had the opportunity to test the system at a gig situation. I’m a guitarist/singer performer and do lots of karaoke gigs. The issue I am having has to do with static discharge anytime I touch the top metal part facade of the T4S mixer where the volume knobs are only but not the center part where the display screen is? It is annoying because the...

Why does USB A Playback volume change when I change Scenes (T4S/T8S)

Doug 3 ·
While a song is playing from the USB flash drive, changing from one scene to another affects the volume of the music, quite often changing it to MUTE. Shouldn't the Preference Settings be "Global", therefore independent of the settings within "Scenes"? (There are some songs in which I desire to change my Channel 1 reverb, delay and other settings in the middle of the song.) Edit: Added Tags. Bose Pro Community Admin

T4S USB out

David Wyatt ·
I was testing the T4S USB connection to Mac and set the output to route the T4S channel 1 (mic channel) to both Right and Left outputs on the USB in place of leaving it as Master. The vocal recording using a Nuemann KMS105 appeared to fade in an out. I wondered if I was experiencing phasing cancellation issues by routing in this way. Has anyone else tried or noticed this?

T4S Compression

Speedy ·
Hi, The T4s compression module only has Threshold and Gain settings, where is attack, release, and ratio? And is the gain setting here "make up gain"? Or is it something else? Can someone in the know, please give me a run down on the compression is set up and works on the T4s please? For guitar, if I set the comp to -16db on both my T4s and my Play Acoustic then compare both independently at that setting and with no comp. I can hear the difference with the Play Acoustic but not with the T4s.

T4S Power supply

I have a T4S mixer and the Bose recommended power supply. I am currently powering this with a portable lithium ion battery pack (Base S360 42000 Mha) which can be solar powered.

T4S ToneMatch Mixer update - not working

I just got my T4S today and tried to install the T4S update on a Mac Sierra. In the begging my MAC would not want to open the app saying it was not an app from the app store. To fix this I had to go to my privacy settings and I finally managed to open the L1 UPDATE for MAC OSX (v1.3). I downloaded the T4 S Update ( V1.1.4) , placed them in the same folder! My Bose T4S Mixer is version V1.0.1. When I click to Update the T4S mixer I get a pop up saying " The selected file is not compatible.

T4S/T8S Tap Tempo Tip

ST ·
Have you tried the Tap Tempo feature? It's new in the T4S/T8S and it let's you set the tempo for delay by tapping the center button in the delay settings. The T1 didn't have this feature. A friend asked me why he couldn't tap in anything slower than around 125 BPM (Beats Per Minute). Here's the answer The maximum delay is 500 milliseconds. This is 120 BPM (Beats Per Minute). If you tap anything slower than that, it won't register. If you are working at a tempo slower than 120 BPM, try...

Re: T4S - MP3 & WAV streaming from flash drive

Mike in Texas ·
Hi Doug - I encountered and solved this issue, but on a "lower threshold". I use MP3's in my classic band situation for intros, but for only 5 or 6 songs throughout a night. My first thought was to ADD silence to the end of track, but I at times would still forget to stop the player. I generally detest iTunes, but I've found no other player really any better in Windows. I want the player to function, or to have an option to work exactly as you describe - play one track and STOP, positioning...

While we are waiting for a Bose update, assuming they choose to implement your request, here’s a user solution I have used . Record a blank MP3 of an appropriate Duration say 60 secs and name it so it comes after the single track you wish to play. It will then follow on and you have a minute to get to the controls to stop the playback. You can easily duplicate this MP3 and name them in such a way so they fit between your tracks on the set list. Ie A.mp3, Aa.mp3 B.mp3 etc, or you could append...

I've tried each of your approaches in the past, using iTunes in my iPad, but became frustrated with the extra work preparing the files and with the extra touches needed on the controls during performances.

I have been using this for my live performances for 8 or...

Re: T4S - MP3 & WAV streaming from flash drive

Just another thought Doug. In the T4S player I think it does not swap directories after playing a song, so possibly putting each song in its own directory will solve the issue of next song not starting automatically. However you would still need to twiddle the knobs to select your next song. David

Hi MPadilla, Your connection looks fine. It also appears you are using the USB connection. And I don't see anything connected to inputs 1, 2, 3, 4. The USB from PC connection goes directly to the Master Output. The Master Volume control is the only way to change the volume. But you can change that. You can send the USB from PC to channels 3 and 4. Then you can use the CH MUTE buttons. Please see these notes: USB B from PC But you must be running the latest firmware to do this. See: T4S/T8S...

Hi DMC, The L1 Model II performs like the L1 Model I except mid-high frequencies are more evenly distributed at the extreme left and right. Using the L1 Model I and L1 Model II on the same stage is not much louder than the L1 Model I alone. However, you can increase your horizontal coverage by the distance between the two L1 systems. For example, if you put the L1 systems 20 feet apart then you will increase the horizontal dispersion by 20 feet. For more coverage, you can put the L1 systems...
