Hello, I would like to ask what is the best mixer for L1 Model 1s aside from T1 tone match.
That's an extremely broad question! How many inputs do you need? Do you want analog or digital?
There are hundreds of options so it depends what options you want/ need.
Please tell us why you are excluding ToneMatch mixers from your options. Understanding that will help others to make suggestions.
I am curious about why you don't want a Tonematch too.
Lack of more Inputs, seems to me, the only drawback.
I've heard many L1 users with analog mixers, it never sounds as clear as T1.
Maybe if you have golden ears, it could be replicated.
Digital mixers I've looked into are the QSC Touchmix, and the Presonus 16:4:2, which is what my new band uses.
It could be just my personal bias, but I don't think even the Presonus is as clear as a T1, and the guy who runs it is a PA Pro. But I won't tell the band that, I am not the decision maker.
I DO use my T1 with the kick drum gate for my bass drum, and run it into a channel on the Presonus. From their we can distribute sound to either or both Model IIs.
