We’ve designed the L1® Compact with the goal of providing a simple user interface for both musicians and general purpose users. You will notice there is volume control for each Channel but no overall Master volume. This means that the power amp section is always at full gain. In this configuration the Channel and Channel 2 volume controls are effectively acting as trim controls.
So......IF I am using a tonematch with my compact into channel2 , would it be better to keep channel "2" Volume at say 10 oclock and Tonematch Master Volume at 12 o'clock or should they both be the same starting out? Would a lower channel 2 volume setting and a hight Master Volume setting on Tonematch be better from a microphone feedback standpoint?
In my personal experience I tend to use the following rules of thumb to achieve what I perceive as maximum gain before feedback:
T1 Vocal Channel Level: 1 o'clock
T1 Acoustic Guitar Channel Level: 11 o'clock
T1 Master Volume: 3 o'clock (75% or so)
L1 Compact Channel II Level: 11 o'clock or less depending on how loud I need to be
We have performed numerous critical listening demonstrations and these general settings have produced excellent results.
