Considering T4S/T8S Stereo Options

snakehips ·
Hi there ! Not been on the Bose forum for quite some time but I have just noticed there are some new Tonematch mixers. i have a blues acoustic duo, and we bought one Bose L1mkII, two B1 bass modules, and each use a T1 Tonematch mixer, about 8yrs ago - and love using them. In some pub gigs, with a small PA system already set up, and no room to set up the L1 additionally, we have often used just our Tonematch mixers with the in-house PA and still got great results. Our Tonematch mixers are...

T8S ToneMatch® mixer on a microphone stand

ST ·
I cobbled together some bits and pieces and came up with this arrangement for the T8S ToneMatch mixer on a microphone stand. I wasn't happy with having the T8S attached to a bar extending out from the microphone stand. All the bars and extensions and tables drooped or sagged. So I put the T8S directly on the stand, and microphone on an extension. I'm thinking out loud as I explore these ideas. I'm not ready to recommend this approach yet. I may end up putting the T8S on small table or...

T8S Analog vs Digital Connection to L1 Model 1S and Model II

ST ·
Some people have expressed concern because the T8S ToneMatch mixer does not have ToneMatch (digital) connections to L1 Model 1S and L1 Model II. I've taken the time to test this carefully. To my ears, there is no audible difference between the digital and the analog connections. The background and some notes about how I tested follow below. The best way I know to detect differences in sound is to do an A/B switch back and forth instantly. Even a few seconds between listening events can lead...

T4S / T8S and USB Audio Questions

Moon Dog ·
So upon further review lets talk more about the T4S. The USB audio input can be used for songs between sets. On my current T1 I have to use a channel so this is great because it frees up a channel. So the question for ST here is, will the mixer play the songs on the stick automatically one after the other for example during breaks? I read where you can pick the songs you want to play which is great for specific events that want specific music, but for us giggers, I just need music to play...

ToneMatch® Presets - Mono and Stereo

Esparka ·
New discussion spun off from: Advice for new T8S ToneMatch User Great question from Andy. ST, please elaborate. Is there a specific location for the T8S presets/updates? So far, you stated that the T1 presets are compatible. I understand that the T8S is stereo. Would it not follow that for presets to be fully functional, the presets would be created with stereo functionality at the core? With T1 being mono, those presets would seem to be less than optimal. Thank you for your time,

T8S Aux Out assignment issues and scene persistence

BrianA ·
I have two issues with my T8S: First, I can't seem to assign individual channels to individual Aux outs. I would like to assign Chan1 to AuxOut1, Chan2 to AuxOut2 etc. The T8S assigns the same channel to every AuxOut. I want to use the AuxOuts for individual powered monitors (and send only one or possibly 2 channels to each AuxOut). Second, the Aux Out assignments do not seem to be saved with scenes I create. Between the two issues, the Aux Outs are basically useless to me. My setup is a...

L1 Model II with new T8S

Chuckm ·
I've been one of those who wants more channels and it will be here soon in the T8S. I've read most of the post's for the 8 and was wondering is the fact there are more channels on the 8 the only new "stuff"? For example, how about more presets, i.e., I am an Korg PA4X Arranger player. One of the presets on the T1 was DJ, also no presets for the Heil microphones. Just wondering if any thought was given to more presets during the creation of the T8S? Edit title: Previously "L1 Model 11 with...

T8S with One L1 Model II?

Hello! New to the forum. Hoping to find some answers! Recently, my bandmate and I purchased an L1 Model 2, B2 and a T4S mixer. It sounds great, but we needed more input capacity, so we have exchanged it and pre-ordered the T8S. However, I just read in the manual that the Ethercon port is NOT compatible with the L1 system/ Mono Ethercon connection like the T4S. Is it possible to use the T8S with a single L1 Model II? Can you just connect one of the XLR outs to the TRS input on the base of the...

T4S & T8S Mixers - 1/4 inch (6mm) Mounting Screw (Mounting Options)

scottcald ·
Glad the mixers have been updated, but a couple of questions on them. Why a camera tripod mount? That seems odd to me. Can the T4S not mount to a mic stand? This also seems like they won't be able to mount on the L1s either. Also, I get that the L1 MII won't output enough power from the stand, but it should be able to connect digitally to them. Again, to me these all seem like odd exclusions/decisions. Hopefully one of the Bose folks will chime in with some answers.

T8 mixer overdriving channel noise

Superjazzman1234 ·
We used the the T8 mixer with two L1 M2 towers on probably a dozen gigs since we got it at the beginning of the month. We like it a lot.! We noticed that sometimes if the trim from channels are set too hot and the red LED peaks out for a second, it will not just distort that one channel, but it seems to take out the whole mix on the outputs for a split second with a loud static white noise. I know the solution is just to set the trim to a lower level but in the live performance world you you...

Using in-ear wireless monitors with a T8S

T8S for use with L1 model II with B2 Bass

I have read the online manual for the T8S, but just want to ask a clarification question before I purchase one. I would like to use the T8S for my L1 model II with B2 Bass line array system. From what I can tell, the only connection would be analog through a 1/4 TRS cable, is that correct? Will there be a difference in the quality of sound vs. using a XLR cable? Also, should the TRS cable be balanced? Thank you.

T8S Global EQ

rockandroll00 ·
I'm sure this is an easy question but for the life of me I cannot find out how to use, or where the Global EQ is on the T8S. Can someone give me a little help? By global EQ, I'm thinking that there should be a control somewhere that lets me affect low/mid/high for the entire mix and not just on the individual channels but maybe I'm incorrect in that thinking? I don't want to have to tweak every instrument individually for a venue. Your time and help is greatly appreciated, Brian
