The T8s is an 8/2 in mixer terminology, 8 input channels and 2 output channels. Multi-track if I remember correctly is anything more than 2 track, therefor 4 track, 8 track, 16 track, 32 track etc. is multi-track.

I have a T4s, the T8s is pretty much the same, the USB audio interface can suck or blow, so it can (amongst other things) interface with a DAW system. Given that you can create multi-track recordings IF your recording system permits it.

hope that is of some help.

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community.  Welcome.

Congratulations on getting your T8S.

First: Please please check that you have the latest firmware.

T4S/T8S Firmware Update Instructions

I just purchased the T8S and was wondering if it would operate as a multi track interface with my MacBook Pro? Hoping you'll say 8 channels of input, but not holding my breath.

The output via USB has two channels designated Left and Right.

You can assign any of the following to those outputs.

  • Master (default)
  • Channels 1 through 8
  • Aux In
  • Aux Outputs 1 through 4

To access these options

  1. Turn the Rotary Selector to Prefs
  2. Turn the Menu to USB to PC

Hi Norris,

Seems that including an output option for recording Channels 1-8 via the USB would just be a software change. Is is the being considered for a future enhancement on the TS8 product roadmap?

Thanks for the suggestion. Please add this to the discussion linked below.
