This is a guide on how to set up a T1 feeding two separate sources for left and right, e.g. two model II's or model I's. T1 is designed to be a mono device, so the setup for stereo is a little complicated. But, once set up, you can easily control volume of the stereo feed from your stereo device (keyboard, DJ mixer, iPod, etc.). Please note - you will not be able to use reverb in this configuration. Most keyboards already have stereo reverb built in - you can use that reverb instead.
Basic Set Up and Cabling
Step #1: If using two model II's, you will need a power supply for your T1. We will be using the analog outputs of the T1, and will not use the digital output.
Step #2: Cabling the T1 to your speakers. T1 channel 1 = Left. T1 channel 2 = right. Connect the analog 'Main' out to your Left speaker. Connect the analog 'Aux' out to your Right speaker. Keep type of cabling consistent - use either balanced 1/4" for both connections, or unbalanced 1/4" for both connections. Set the gain on your Left and Right speakers (model I's, model II's or other) equally as you usually would with a stereo rig.
Step #3: Cable your stereo source to the T1. Again, T1 channel 1 = Left. T1 channel 2 = right. Connect your stereo source to Channel 1 and Channel 2. If using a keyboard, there are usually separate 1/4" Left and Right outs. For an iPod or similar device, you will need a stereo 1/8" to dual mono 1/4" cable, available at any music store: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Hosa-Stereo-YCab...ono-Males?sku=333053
Step #4: Set gains on T1. Mute Channel #2. Adjust your Trim on Channel 1 as you normally would. Set the Trim on Channel 2 to be identical to what you just set Channel 1 to be. Un-Mute Channel 2.
Step #5: Set knobs T1. Turn Channel 1 volume knob to 50%. Turn Channel 2 volume knob to 0% (this will make sense in a minute). Turn Master volume to 100%.
Step #6: Set Aux sends on T1. Select 'Aux' on selector wheel. Select Channel 1. Set 'Aux' send level to 0% (or turn it off entirely). Select Channel 2. Set 'Aux' send level to 50%, and aux tap point to 'Pre'. Now, channel 2 will *only* go through the 'Aux' out, and not the 'Main' out.
Step #7: Make sure Channel 1 and Channel 2 are set identical. Make sure ToneMatch Presets (if used) are the same. Set zEQ to the same setting (if used). Turn FX and Reverb off for both Channels.
Step #8: This is a good time save the Scene you have just created :-)
Step #9: Soundcheck. Now the T1 will be in stereo. The Left is going through Channel 1->Main Out to your left speaker. The Right is going through Channel 2->Aux Out to your right speaker. If you need to adjust your volume, you will need to adjust both the Channel 1 knob *and* Channel 2 'Aux' send level. The easiest thing to do is get the Ch1 knob and Ch2 aux set the same, and then adjust from your source (keys, iPod etc.). You are good to go...
- if you turn the master volume down, it will *only* turn down Channel 1. You cannot control both the 'Main' and 'Aux' out from the master volume knob. This is the reason for turning the Master to full, essentially bypassing it.
- you can use ToneMatch presets, zEQ, and Comp/Gate but I would suggest setting both channels exactly the same.
- the T1's reverb is not stereo, I would recommend against using it here.
- other effects use at your own artistic risk :-)
This is easier than it sounds. I will post a scene, but you can probably set your T1 to do this faster than it will take to find the USB cable to do the update.
Good luck, Ill post a couple screen shots of how things should look. Please ask any questions and Ill add clarifications to the original post.
Here's how your T1 will look set up for stereo:
