This is very exciting!  I wonder if they’ve introduced Bluetooth to connection for gig break tunes.  Also, VERY cool they’ve allowed reverb on the aux out and independent channels.  

 

Anyone have a guess on price?  If the T1, right now, is $500....this thing could be a QSC price point...what, $1200?  Little steep for me.

   Price shows as $899 (less than I expected) for the T8S 8 channel and $599 for the smaller T4S.   I've been wanting to add my piano and 2nd vocal position to the show...and this T8S Tonematch is going to be my ticket to do it much easier than the extra gig ready setup I had to go through before.  My gosh Bose....you gave me a break for a few years..... and now.....beg, borrow, steal, or take out a second mortgage it will be.    Anybody want to buy a good T1 Tonematch Engine?  LOL!  
  

Hi mbt0071!

Thank you for joining the Bose Pro Portable PA Community.

Good eye!

I see L1 ports for L/R and Main L/R.   Is the volume control separate for them? 

The ToneMatch T4S has the digital outputs that connect directly to the L1® Model 1S and L1® Model II.

The Master Volume controls both left and right outputs. If you need to control them separately, you would do that using the PAN control for each channel.

If you are thinking about setting up a separate monitor mix, consider using the Aux output.

Does that help?

WOOPS!  No connection to tablet or phone app to allow Walk Around Mixing :-{  Very cumbersome awkward multi-screen interface anyway - this would have been a chance to address and improve that..  QSC and Behringer interfaces are significantly more modern and easier to use.  Without CLIFF, Bose continues to make decisions WITHOUT the on-stage musician user in mind.  Too Bad..

Hi Auron,

Auron posted:

So. I'm using 2 L1 M2 with 4 B2's at the moment. For big Events I'm taking a Midas M32 with me but it is really heavy. Do you think it makes sense to take the T8S for this usecase? Waited so long for a stereo one.

It depends on your inputs. What are you running into the Midas?
ST

Using 1/4 inch to XLR. Sometimes I have a DI-box between them. The Midas habe 32 xlr inputs and 32 xlr outputs.

Usually I‘m using 1 or 2 stereo keyboards ( Yamaha Genos and Tyros 5) and some

microphones for singing.

For big events I will stay on the M32. When I need most of the 32 inouts for example.

Oh boy, Bose.  I am a big Bose advocate, and own a Compact and M2 with 2 B1s and 2 T1s.  But, like the new S1 (another post), I am disappointed at the new Tonematches, especially the T8S.  I kind of like the T4S, but was hoping for a similar setup on the T8S, so to get more channels.  Why are they so different?  Isn't that what many Bose users on this forum were also interested in?  No audio/power combination so you have to use a power supply?  No bluetooth capability?  STILL doesn't mount nicely to a mic stand?  I hope to hear some exciting things about these units as some start using them.  Hoping I'm totally missing something.  Certainly no "wow factor" at this time. I hope I'm wrong.  I was really hoping for an all around upgrade to the whole L1 system.  Pricing is also steep for what you are getting. I'll keep reading this forum hoping that I'm totally missing something.  Still love Bose stuff, and will keep using what I have with great pride.  I was just hoping to upgrade. 

Hi Stos2,

Thanks for your thoughtful comments.

I agree it would have been nice to have the same setup with two ToneMatch ports on the ToneMatch T8S (like the T4S)

With the ToneMatch T8S (with all those inputs), it was likely the user would be running out to two Bose F1 812 systems, or something similar. So we've got XLR and 1/4 inch balanced outputs instead of two ToneMatch ports like the ToneMatch T4S. We can use the same ToneMatch Power Supply for all the ToneMatch mixers (T1, T4s, T8S)

Edit - adding this further information from Bose

From Bose:

We tried to make it (full ToneMatch port for digital output) happen for the T8S but powering the T8S from an L1 was not meeting our requirements so we opted for an external power supply which ships with the T8S. While the digital connection is nice, your experience will be fine with a balanced TRS connection between the T8S and L1 Model II.



For Bluetooth, if I was using backing tracks in a pro setting (any place I would be using one of the new ToneMatch mixers) I would still use a wired solution.  I can see why you might use it with the S1 Pro. 

About mounting solutions - please see: ToneMatch Mixers - 1/4 inch (6mm) Mounting Screw

I'm looking forward to hearing from people when they get their hands on the new ToneMatch mixers. 

Cheers, 

ST

What surprises me most in this thread is that no-one seems to be asking a question that has been popping up up for years regarding the T1.

Have Bose updated/increased the number of presets available to the user? These have been stagnating now for about 10 years or so and many new devices (even from Tonematch partners) have no dedicated preset. For example all new Taylor guitars have the Expression Sytem ES2 which is piezo based. The Presets available are for Expression Sytem ES1 which is magnetically(humbucker)/coil(body sensor) based. Another example would be the LR Baggs Anthem system. 

This would be a real boost for all users. Experienced users who are familiar with EQ'ing (both digitally and analogue) will always be able to get a good sound from their desk, but the "having a sound engineer at your fingertips" world is for me, unfortunately, no longer as true as it was 10 years ago. Thankfully I've been EQ'ing stuff for over 50 years so I've been able to live with what's been on offer with the T1.

Tony

Seagullman,

Good point.  I guess I haven't considered it since the presets are there for the instruments I use.  But that is not to say they couldn't be tweaked, or that I won't be needing a different one in the near future.  I am looking to get an Ovation with the Op Pro Studion preamp.  I'm sure the T1 doesn't have a Tonematch setting for that.  I agree about getting updated Tonematch settings.  I mean, that's the whole reason the T1 exists, right?  It's the whole selling point of this unit.  You DON"T have to be a sound engineer to get a good sound out of it, and it is matched nicely to fit the L1 systems.  If you are left to adjust the EQ yourself, then there are cheaper options for mixers out there.  I do LOVE the effects on the T1, and the fact that you can apply them to each channel separately.  That's huge.

Are the Tonematch mixers designed to be used primarily with the Bose L1 and F1 systems?  I mean, are they mainly taylored to these systems?  Has anyone used them with success with any other PA systems?  Does it make sense to?  If so, how well did they work and sound? 

If they were designed mainly for the L1/F1 systems, then I would think that the F1 would also have been designed with the Tonematch digital audio/power port to interface with the the Tonematch.  And then the T8S could have also been designed with these ports.  Seems there's a big mismatch here.  But then, the Compacts don't have this port either, ugh.  Boy, another case for an upgraded Compact? 

Can't wait to hear feedback from users of the T8S and T4S.  I may have to get a T4S and run two Compacts in "stereo" from it.  I'm really interested in hearing if others will be doing this, and hearing how it sounds.  Adding some spatial stereo sound to the Compacts already clear audio may be where it's at.

One final question.  Is there a difference in sound quality between the analog output and the digital Tonematch output?  Maybe just the analog outputs are the better option?  Hmmm ... I'm thinking too much.

I'm sure the new ToneMatch mixers will work well with non-Bose systems (subject to the limitations of those systems). One of the new features in the ToneMatch mixers is the Master Out EQ in the Preferences section.

The Master Out EQ is a 6-band graphic equalizer put on the master mix out. This will help you to tune the output of the ToneMatch mixer to whatever you connect it to.



If they were designed mainly for the L1/F1 systems, then I would think that the F1 would also have been designed with the Tonematch digital audio/power port to interface with the the Tonematch.  And then the T8S could have also been designed with these ports.  Seems there's a big mismatch here.  But then, the Compacts don't have this port either, ugh.  Boy, another case for an upgraded Compact? 

A thought to consider here: The F1 Model 812 and F1 Subwoofer were introduced mid-2015.

I hope to hear from people as soon as they become available.

On the ToneMatch T4S the analog outputs was clones of the digital output through the ToneMatch port.

Hmmm ... I'm thinking too much.

It's fun to ponder until we start hearing from people when they've had some time with the units.

Thanks for being a part of the conversation.

Hi Auron,

Why no digital output on the ToneMatch T8S - more information?

Auron posted:

I'm a bit confused why the T4S has the 2 digital outputs and the T8S has only one. A bit disappointing isn't it?

The ToneMatch T4S has two ToneMatch (digital outputs) and one of those also doubles as power supply (drawing power from the L1®).

The ToneMatch T8S has four main analog outputs, and not digital outputs. There is an RJ45 input (like a ToneMatch port) but that is for the ToneMatch Power Supply.

From Bose:

We tried to make it (full ToneMatch port for digital output) happen for the T8S but powering the T8S from an L1 was not meeting our requirements so we opted for an external power supply which ships with the T8S. While the digital connection is nice, your experience will be fine with a balanced TRS connection between the T8S and L1 Model II.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see how things develop on these lines.

You're right about other cheaper mixers being available. What really convinced me to buy the T1 was its sheer size and capabilities in such a small housing which I could mount on my microphone stand for my solo work with a Compact. For that type of thing I have basically everything I need, including all the "normal" effects in good quality. 

The Compact + T1 did however mean that I had to run 2 Cables to my Microphone stand just to be able to use the T1 with my Compact (plus the fact that I had to adjust the trim on the Analog input of Channel 2 for overall main volume). When I bought my Model II I was really happy that I only needed 1 cable and that the Master on the T1 controlled the main volume.

With the T8S it would appear that I would have to go back to the system I had with my Compact. Somehow I can't see this as being a big step forward for me. Yes, I could mix my trio with just 1 Tonematch mixer rather than the 2 T1's we need when gigging. Would the outlay be acceptable for the ease of having just 1? For many I think that the answer here will be yes, but I fear that I'll be staying with my 2 x T1 set up. The only thing that could possibly change my mind would be to have a substantial increase in the number of available presets. Failing that I would personally probably be looking at a rack mixer controllable via wifi (à la Behringer X32 Rack mixer which has more possibilities, more inputs and more all round).

The disadvantage here being that you need to have a certain knowledge of digital mixing consoles to be able to use it (plus an iPad or similar to control it. I have this knowledge and already own a Yamaha digital mixer. Many don't know much about EQ'ing which was Bose's big argument when they brought out the T1. It was an innovative product with its presets.

Unfortunately this part of the story seems to have ended about 10 years ago. I would really have loved to have seen a major increase in the number of available presets. That would have been a big step forward again in my opinion. 

Don't get me wrong here. More features is great. More inputs is great. The improvements in the effects section is great .... but .... for the musician who's being coaxed into doing his own mixing and has never done it before, time seems to have stood still regarding EQ-Presets. Also the ability to load single presets to be able to customize the Preset Banks to fit one's needs could have been improved on. Maybe someone at Bose will read this and say ... "Hey Tony, we've already done this. Just look on page X of the Manual". I'd love to read that. I may be jumping the gun here. I certainly hope so. 

If not, maybe there's still time for these things to be considered and applied to this new series of mixers. It would be a shame to have to wait another 10 years for these things to appear and by then the boat may have already sailed ...  ...

I know that this probably sounds like griping, but as far as I see things, the forum is also there for people to exchange thoughts, feelings and ideas about the equipment. That's how it was at the beginning anyway. Maybe one or more of the R+D people will read this thread and just have a think about what I've written here. If this has all been taken into account and is being implemented OK. If not maybe it will give food for thought.

Maybe it just hasn't been possible for Bose to compensate for Cliff Henricksen's departure from the Company. I could understand that, but as I see it, no one is completely unreplaceable. 

I am an avid supporter of the L1 series of products. I personally don't know at present of any PA system that suits my Band's needs better than an L1. I'd just like it to stay that way.

One thing that I've always been impressed by has been the speed at which Bose has reacted to any problems that we users may have had over the years. I'd like to say a big "thanks" to all the Bose people who work or have worked in the support team. I know that many of you are musicians yourselves. Maybe that's one big reason that it works so well.

I hope that anyone reading this will see it for what it is ... and that is just expressing my thoughts, wishes maybe even dreams regarding equipment that I have come to love and trust. I'd really love to see this Bose dream that started with the first L1 continue as it began. 

I'd also like to send out a massive word of thanks to Ken Jacob for the development of the L1 system and the forum here that we've all come to know so well and love so much.

Take care everyone and thanks for reading this.

My 5-piece Blues band played tonite for a small private party at a country club.  The room was very small, and we were hurting for space. We played for two hours, one being a dinner set with slower blues/R&B stuff.  Guess what?  We used one Compact with a small powered Behringer sub via two T1's.   Drummer had light sticks. I ran 3 vocals, guitar, bass and keys thru the T1's into the Compact.   Had to daisy chain the two T1's. Pulled it off like a charm.  We didn't need excess power since it was a small place.. But it was a major pain setting up with all the wires running all over using the two Tonematches. I was able to get a nice balanced sound but it took a little tweaking.   Both Tonematches were attached to my mic stand so I could control on the fly. I can't believe my mic stand didn't collapse.  I also had an iPad, vocal mic and harp mic attached to it too. We were actually asked to turn down a little during our non-dinner set.  I guess the Compact was an overkill, LOL.

I gotta get the T8S and mount it to its own mic stand. It will make my life easier.  We use my L1M2 a lot for the band. First time we used the Compact for the band.  I'm impressed. 

I also play with a friend as a duo act. We both have a Compact. So ... having the T8S will aloow us to play in stereo, no?  

Oops, I can hear my wife's eyes rolling.  Gotta go.

Looking forward to real life trials of the T8S used with an L1 system. I was always with the assumption that one of the great things about the original T1 was being able to connect the unit digitally. Any time I've hooked up another type of mixer via the analog input on the base of my L1 it had more noise and  just didn't sound as good. This might not be the case with the T8S (I hope) but If power was the issue and they added all those analog outputs on the back would it not have been a good call to make at least two of these outputs Digital to work with all the L1 units our there? You could have also used a separate power supply if needed.

 

 

 

Hi,

At last a bigger (more inputs) Tonematch mixer (T8S).

I note that it has stereo outputs. Does each channel have its own Pan Left / Right control? If so, where is this done? (The Master Select Knob has the same main options as the T1.)

When will the the full T8S manual be available for download?

Jim S.

I am a bit surprised there is really no use for a DJ mixer in these new units... like an option for stereo analog ins (at least two). I also wish there was a rack mount option. As far as the larger one being used for FOH I think that if that was the idea at least 10 if not 12 channels would have been better... most bands I mix sound for take up at least 10 channels... I know this would have increased the size and weight... but it would have been more useful to Bands mixing from stage.

Yes, having a way to connect with an IPad would have been great via Bose software... but I suspect the reason that wasn't not implemented was because of all the technical support that would have been created... for many reasons. 

A audio recording option would have been nice as many mixers these days give you this option... even though some times it is only two tracks (main outs) on a SD card... some might have found it useful. 

Lastly a battery powered option would have been cool as well. 

Just some ideas... these new mixers won't serve any of my needs... but I figured I would chime in.

Hoping someone here might be able to clarify the release date for the T8S. I saw it mentioned for late Feb 2018, but Sweetwater is getting info that it will not be until MAY! I have already pre ordered one as it is the perfect solution to my needs  of using the L1II B2 as a stage monitor along with the pair of F1/812 mains for a full band. CAN'T Wait! I will be using my two T1's (into 9/10 INPUTS) as add ons to give me a 16 channel board w/assignable monitor mixes. Woohoo...

 

Anyone here who can help with a date????

Argg,

I just pre-ordered the T8S.  I have two T1s right now, and wondering if I should sell them to help offset the cost. Like so many of you, I have a lot of $$ invested in Bose stuff. For those of you planning to get the T8S, what are your plans for a backup in case the T8S fails at a gig?  I have an Alesis iMultimix that I guess could be a backup.  It would get me thru the gig I guess.  I surely can't. affors a second T8S.  Finally, how do you convince your spouses that you are not an idiot for buying another expensive piece of gear?

There is. I am surprised that so many are chiming in without reviewing the info that is already available. Both of the new units have stereo inputs which could be used for DJ's. I for one will be using those inputs to use the 2 T1's I already own for additional inputs, making the T8S the heart of a 16/18 channel T type mixer. This will allow me to use the T8s for outputs to my F1/812 mains, using my 2 L1 II w/B2 for  assignable monitors from the aux outs. 

I will use the 8 inputs for 2 Acoustic guitars, 2 electric guitars, DI Bass, Keys and the two extra inputs for what ever else is needed. I will use one of my T1's for a 5 channel sub mixer exclusively for drums with kick, snare, hi-hat, overhead, toms. All of that will have individual channel control and the T1 will work as a Master Volume into the T8S. The 2nd T1 will be a sub mixer exclusively for vocals and like the drums have it's own Master volume feeding the T8S.

While it will not be everything for everyone, I for one feel they nailed it with these mixers as they will allow the use of already purchased equipment to make a more comprehensive and useful system. For me the main things missing have been addressed. Assignable aux outs for monitor mixes, flexible Aux ins for adding additional T series boards, and 4 new mains out for connection to their F1/812 system. For me that allows me to make the most of my already purchased equipment and have a high quality, easily scalable pro system for nearly all my needs.

In the past I have always had to make compromises to use the F1/812 along with a single L1 II for  a full band situation using a pair of T1 mixers. While it worked it was never ideal and had many shortcomings. These new mixers are the perfect additions to the existing line to make the most out of all that is out there already while keeping the simplicity, workflow and quality that we all have come to love. 

The only thing in my book that would have made it perfect is a DAW interface or direct recording capability for home studios. But not having seen the manual there is still a glimmer of hope that it might be hidden in there somewhere...

I did review the material available... BTW most anolog DJs will need a minimum of two stereo inputs for two music playback sources (just like me), both of these new mixers only have a single stereo input and are a no go because of it. My 19” rack mount mixer the Denon X900/X500 has four dedicated stereo Channels and half of the time I am using three out of four at my shows... 

I do recognize that that us analog DJs are a dying breed and most DJs these days using laptops... so I do understand why there were not more stereo options... That being said I have been hoping/waiting for ten years (since I bought my first set of L1 Model I systems) for Bose to produce a Bose mixer that I could use for my DJ show. 

These look like great units and I am sure they will serve the community well. 

With the T8S ToneMatch mixer, you've got eight mono inputs in addition to the stereo input.

With those eight mono inputs, you can connect three stereo devices (Left + Right takes two channels). You can pan each pair hard left and right to maintain the stereo image. You still have room for a couple of microphones.
