Selecting Audio effect settings between songs.

I am in the process of researching the option of purchasing a t8s tonematch.  I presently have been using a Mackie 1604 VLZ and a  separate effects processor that we control via a midi pedal to select the effects for each song.    Is there a quick way of selecting the effects between songs using the t8s?

Hi zachern,

Thank you for joining the Bose Portable PA Community. 

This is a really interesting question. 

The T8S doesn't support midi control. 

You have four Aux sends (every channel can be assigned to one of the four Aux sends).  And there are two Aux inputs that you can use as Effect returns.  If that sounds like that will work with your external effects, then the T8S could work for you. But if you're looking for a mixer that can replace both the Mackie 1604 VLZ and your external effects unit with midi control, the T8S won't do that.

Did I answer your question?

I understand that I cannot use the midi control.  I wanted to see if there is a quick way that I can change the effects between songs (I.E.  turn a knob to a preset setting that would set the effect for all channels)  I dont want to have to go into the effects and save the saturation , etc each time I want to use a particular effect.
