Hmmm ... interesting question. I've seen folks on this forum who use battery power sources to power their L1 compacts ... so why not the T1?
I'd love to use my T1 with my S1 if I had a portable power source for the T1. Right now I'm experimenting with using the Behringer 1002B but can't eliminate the hum that I'm getting and it's really annoying.
I'd prefer to use my T1 if it were easy to power up ...
I don't have a hum running my Behringer 1002b and S1s. I'm running a TRS 1/4" from each output through a balanced cable to an XLR into channel one of each S1. I usually run the volume on the S1s at the detent (12 o'Clock) and do the mix on the 1002b...
How are you hooking them up?
I suspect it's easy to induce hum if you're going into the 1/8" aux input though...
Thanks, @Chet 3 ... I've tried connecting from the 1002B Main out to the S1 via TS (as per the Behringer manual) and TRS. Same thing - still get the hum.
Same cables going directly from my guitar to the S1 don't create a hum.
I pan the out from the 1002B L and R to the S1 ch.1 and 2. S1 is nearly always at 12 o'clock.
I usually run my SM58 to ch.1 on the 1002B (via XLR, of course).
I've tried going via TS from guitar to ch.3 on the 1002B and via TS/XLR through an ADI21. Either way I get a hum on my S1. Both guitars (Takamine acoustic or Godin A6 Ultra) have the same effect. I've tried a variety of TS cables too.
And I've tried the 1002B with power and on batteries. Same result.
I've already returned one 1002B to the retailer and am embarrassed to go back with the replacement as well!
That's why I would love to use my T1 if I could! (When I'm plugging into a power source I use my T1 - with my L1M2. To me, the T1 is the best mixer ever - for my needs. The S1 is usually out for busking or where I don't want to be bothered looking for a wall socket - but then I can't use my T1.)
The only reason I like to have a mixer is so I can have more than one mic and one guitar for use with the S1. I often have people wanting to singalong - so it's nice to have a separate mic for them.Or I can keep one mic which has a harmonica stand attached side-by-side with another mic - allowing me to switch easily when I need the harmonica.
And the Godin A6 has two output jacks. With a mixer I can have my Takamine (one output) and the Godin A6 (two outputs) connected without having to switch guitar cables. I can even keep my Uke plugged in and switch easily between instruments.
