Jus picked up an L1 compact.. play a solo set using guitar and vocals. I run both instrument and vocal mic through a Digitec “Vocalist” Live Harmony pedal. This would then plug using XLR cable into one channel of my PA. Should I plug this setup into the mic side (XLR cable) or do I need to pick up a cable with male XLR plugged into output of pedal to a TRS male plugged into Channel 2 of this rig. Plugged into channel one would be easiest because I have everything Id need but I don’t want to mess up the system.

Welcome to the Bose Portable PA Community and congratulations on getting your L1 Compact.

Great question.

Yes, connect the output of the Digitech “Vocalist” Live Harmony pedal to L1 Compact Channel 2. Set the ToneMatch switch to line level.

You won't harm the system connecting to the XLR input, but you'll get better results connecting to Channel 2.

Channel 1 has a ToneMatch Preset for vocal microphones. It's not suitable for a full-range line-level signal (like the output of the Digitech pedal).
