Hello all,

I have a gig tomorrow night and would like to have a few additional inputs.   2 L1’s, a T4S and a T8S.

i believe that I have 2 options and looking for recommendations or comments.

1,  tie the two mixers together by using line out R on the T4S and into one of the 8 inputs on T8S, eliminating one usable Input for a net gain of 3 inputs.  All inputs would then play through both L1’s and could pan as desired.

2.  Keep the mixers separate.  Running out left and right lines to both L1’s on the T8S and using the digital cable to one of the L1‘s, gaining 4 inputs however all 4 inputs on the T4S would only come out of the associated L1.  Not bad for the users on that side of the stage.    

Will both of these options work and which would be preferred.  Thanks for any suggestions!  

Cheers,

Takefive

Hi Takefive,

You can connect the outputs of the T4S to the T8S Aux inputs (9/10).

Details: T8S Daisy Chain

The article above is about connecting two T8S ToneMatch mixer, but the principles are the same using a T4S and a T8S.



2.  Keep the mixers separate.  Running out left and right lines to both L1’s on the T8S and using the digital cable to one of the L1‘s, gaining 4 inputs

That should work fine.

however all 4 inputs on the T4S would only come out of the associated L1.  

Use the left and right ToneMatch ports on the T4S to the respective L1s

T4S ToneMatch Outputs

and you can pan the inputs wherever you like between the two L1s.

If you don't have two ToneMatch cables, you can use network cable (CAT-5 or CAT-6) up to 50 feet.

Not bad for the users on that side of the stage.   

Will both of these options work and which would be preferred.  Thanks for any suggestions!

About the panning:

If you put the L1 systems behind the band, then try this:

Pan each input so it is heard through only one L1, the closest one. For the microphones - you'll have better gain-before-feedback. You'll also have the Cocktail Party Effect.

Cheers,

Just to follow up I wanted all to know that we had great success with using 2 L1’s for the first time. I followed the great advice of using the tonetouch/Cat5 cables from the T4s and the analog outputs from the T8s.   This setup gave us 12 inputs.   We panned the instruments accordingly and performed on a beautiful fall evening for about 150 folks on a very scenic property.   Thanks for the support!  

Cheers,

Takefive
