L1 Model II

Let's talk about the L1® Portable Line Array Systems

Using proprietary Bose® technology, L1 systems combine  PA and monitors into a single, highly portable unit. The  loudspeaker can be positioned behind or to the side —and you hear what the audience hears.

Highly portable PA and monitor combined for solo performers, DJs and general-purpose use. Fixed vertical control with 180° horizontal coverage Reduced vulnerability to feedback.

Three systems to choose from (Compact, Model 1S, Model II)
Two passive bass module options (B1 or B2)
Consistent coverage and tonal balance, portability and easy setup.

the wording in the manual is probably clear to tech peeps but I dont get it. Is the AUX AND MASTER OUTS for OUTBOARD gear, effects etc and act as SEND/RETURN? If so how do they route to the channels? automatic? Can I infact put say a Lexicon reverb unit in these outputs? How is it configured? TRS? or is MASTER the send and AUX return? please advise.. talk in kindergarten lingo... lol.
thank you
If im wrong about WHAT these outputs do.. what to they ACTUALLY do?
Original Post
myticradio,

The master and aux outputs are analog balanced outputs (as in not digital like the output from the T1 to the model II).

they are *not* send/return points like you would find on an insert loop.

the master output is you main mix that you create using the Ch 1,2,3 4/5 volume knobs and the 'Master' volume knob.

the Aux output is a separate 'submix' (another mix) that you create by using control knobs in the 'Aux' menu.

what are you exactly trying to do? if you give us a detailed outline if what channel you are trying to add effects to, someone here can give you a very detailed answer on how to do it.

I will not be able to check the forum again until Monday night, but Im sure someone else will jump right in.

The AUX and Master Outs are outputs ONLY.

No. Not exactly.

You could use the Aux Output as a "Send" source to the Lexicon and Channels 4/5 as the "Return" input from the Lexicon.

The Master Output will be useful if you do not have a Model II. It works well to use the Master Output as the input to an L1® Classic or Model I.

The Aux for each channel can be routed to the Aux Output so you can have a separate mix with or without the effects that you used in the Main output (excluding reverb).

You could use the Aux Output for recording or for a separate mix to a house system, independent of what you are hearing through the L1®.

Edit: MikeZ and I were typing at the same time. I didn't see his reply until mine was posted.

If anything in this post contradicts Mike's - go with Mike's.
I just purchased a T1 yesterday at Guitar Center to use with my Classic L1 system.

I have been using a Digitech Vocalist Live2. I did not send my microphone through the DVL, but instead used the inserts on the Classic L1.

How can I do something similar with the T1?
I used to run it that way, but I found that I liked it better if I do not run my mic "thru" the Digitech, but instead "insert" the harmony.

I detect what I believe to be a sonic difference. Perhaps it's all in my head.

I can continue to run it as I have been, but will not have the reverb available on the T1.

You can do this IF you have an unused channel on the T1. Take the Line Out from the Mic channel on the T1 (the 1/4" below the XLR is the pre-everything line-out) into the DVL2; then put the output of the DVL2 into the unused T1 Channel. That formerly unused channel's volume control become the "mix" control for blending the DVL2 output with the "straight in" mic sound.

No unused channel? One alternative is to go back to the mic--> DVL2 --> T1.
Hey 7777,

Thanks for this great question.

Dan, thanks for the mind expanding suggestion.

7777, thanks for the feedback on the suggestion.

We now have documentation for this idea here:

T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine / Insert for External Effects

7777 - you are basically running in Parallel with your Dry input coming through your microphone to T1® Channel, and the wet input coming in wherever you have the Digitech Voice Live 2 connected.


To All,
It is possible with a little creative patching to run serial. I've documented that in the wiki article.

7777 - if you are happy with what you doing now, stick with it. If you want to explore it another way - check out the wiki article and the section making a serial connection.
