A few hardware requests for the successors:

USB-C input for external power (which takes priority) that can also be used for standard PSUs and battery packs.

Digital Main Output on T8-2 for interconnect - doesn't have to power mixer as above.

S/PDIF output of main mix (RCA socket) that can be used for recording - an option to set pre-or post headphone fader.

Let me preface this by saying that I am a long time Bose fan, since before I was old and successful enough to own any of the products. Any time I have the opportunity to purchase a product offered by Bose, instead of one of their competitors, I do.

The T4S and T8S are advertised as being "DJ Mixers". Honestly, as a DJ, they are not. I would like them to be, because I'm planning to upgrade my mixer this year, but if you don't have at least two stereo channels, with individual rotary pots, and a crossfader between them, it's not suitable for DJing an event. (wedding, Bar Mitvah, party, etc.)

I'd love to get a mixer with the existing features of the T4S, with those few controls added to 5/6. Until then, I'll be forced to buy competing products.  

I would like one button that mutes all the fx on each channel like a regular mixer. We use it for our trio and all 3 speak so I have to be quick and mute all 3 channels together and unmute them together. It means I have no option but to put the 3 vocals together! One button please!!

WAV/MP3 music streaming from Flash Drive

First, KUDOS for some of the new features in the T4S:
     Master Out EQ - Thank You! Now the system can be adjusted for the  room acoustics that are encountered in various venues!
     Stereo Out, to two L1 systems - Thank You! I can leave a lot of other paraphenalia home now.

MAJOR REQUEST: Provide option to have the music player stop after playing ONE music file from a flash drive.

I'm a solo musician who sings with backing tracks. When a song has finished, I do NOT want to have to jump back to the controls to stop the next song from playing. When the song has ended is when a good performer acknowledges and interacts with the audience. Taking attention away from the audience during the few crictical seconds after the music stops, by turning one's attention to a little screen and playing with little knobs, turns the audience OFF, and marks the difference between an amateur hour and a professional performance. 

I have to wonder just how music streaming from WAV/MP3 files is used by musicians on most stages: are they using streaming to provide background music during breaks, or, are many of them, like me, using the MP3s as backing tracks for the main part of the performance?

For those using backing tracks for their main performance, I can't see how anyone in that situation would want the WAV/MP3 player to jump to the next song in the list and start playing it automatically.

Ideally, the WAV/MP3 player, after finishing the playback of one song, would then automatically HIGHLIGHT the next song in the list, but WITHOUT starting playback. This way, the performer would just need to use one touch on the "SELECT" button when he/she is ready to start the next song playing.

PLEASE have your software writers turn their attention to this; it seems to me that it should be a fairly quick, easy programming detail to implement.

Thanks,

Hi Doug,

I'm with you 100%.... Same here, I'm a solo vocalist using 100% backing tracks. One of the main reasons I bought the T4s was because of the CLAIM it had an in-built media player. I was so bitterly disappointed with it! Not only is it totally useless other than running background music, the display will not show more than 65 items, files or folders. Put 75 tracks in a folder and you'll only see 65 of them on the T4s. In addition to that, it's CLAIM to be able to play WAV files is also misleading, it should it can play "some" WAV files.

Like you suggested, I was so looking forward to... pick the song, press play. Then while performing that song, discretely get the next one highlighted. Song ends and STOPS, my next highlighted song starts on pressing play.

All it needs to transform the Player from useless to a great tool is the facility to turn auto-play on and off... simple. 

 

Good discussion & many relevent points raised . I`m the owner of a T1 & now T8 which I use in conjunction together .Mainly because the T8 did away with the combo channel of 4/5 which I find extremely useful when playing backing tracks/ having to make quick adjustments.

Like it or not its a competitive world , no offence intended for dropping other brand names  . My previoius mixer (which I sometimes still use ) is a QSC touchmix 16 

a couple of features "sacrificed" when moving to the Bose mixers that I personally would dearly love to see added are 

1. Remote Control with an ipad /tablet (whatever your device) its often important as a soloist to be able to make quick volume changes/or muting  when taking breaks . One might be playing at a wedding or casino (important announcements /draw prizes etc) its important & professional when you are as a soloist "the band" , mixer/soundman rolled into one . Additionally its nice to be able to listen to your backing tracks ,stand in front of the stage and make adjustments as desired . This is a common feature on just about every digital mixer I can think of . So for me personally its a letdown not to have this feature

2. More eq options . Again sorry to name drop , the QSC touch has virtually an endless amount of EQ in possobilities . Correct me if I `m wrong but it would be great to have a global EQ whereby you can Eq the room before getting "specific" with each instrument . The TS8 has improved over the T1 in this area but it could still be better 

3. I would like more options / great number of scene possibilites for saving . Again the QSC mixer has a virtual endless amount of scene options

as far as sound goes the Bose equipment is awesome . When I took a break at a gig recently I couldnt believe how good the "break" songs sounded

So I dont feel short changed in sound , just on features 

thanks for the oppourtunity to discuss

cheers

I was discussing the new T4S with a friend of mine who has been using his L1 M2 with T1 for years.  This guy is a really busy musician and plays 5 or 6 shows a week.   He had an interesting feature request for the T series mixers....He'd like to have a lighted digital clock along the top of the mixer, about where the Bose logo is.  He said that when he's playing shows, he tends to lose track of time and hates to look at his watch while on stage. 

I found this to be an interesting feature request.  It could be easily resolved by just sticking an inexpensive digital clock on your mixer but if it were factory, even better.

Just got the T8S. Here are two thoughts from me...

1. The ability to combine channel 9/10 volume control. I have it panned hard L/R, and have to adjust both knobs if there is a volume difference between songs.

2. Global Master Output EQ. Lowest point is 125hz? That is much to high for a full range system. I think there should be a 50hz band added, or at least widen what is currently there to start at 50hz.

Agree fully , although it is nice to have a "room" EQ availible , the bands should be wider and more flexible ,especially on the low end . peace :-)

Tonematch T8s requests,

A firmware update to fix Tuner,   The tuner is as erratic in a live environment, if difficult to get and accurate reading, even when all channels are muted,

A firmware update to fix the reverb,  even with the latest update the reverb still needs tweaked, the latest update is a vast improvement however I still think the reverb needs to clearer, and less muddy,  ( the original tonematch reverb is still 100% better) the difference between 20% and 25% on the settings to much,

The Gain setting knobs are not the reflective of the digital input screen levels on the display,  so the channel is set via the gain level knob, keeping the lights bellow red,  however with the levels on the digital display screen it shows the channel is peeking.  extra tweaking is required to prevent feedback , this means setting the gain levels with the channel unmuted, on trial and error,   not that professional,   esp when with the original tonematch we could sell all levels with all channels muted, 

 

 

 

When trying to name my Scene/preset on T4S I'm missing full stop character.
Unicode Character 'FULL STOP' (U+002E).

ts4-text

I don't understand why there need to be 3 slashes - forward slash, backslash and vertical? Same situation as on T1.

Bose should make its own Windows driver for DAW to be able to utilise all 4 xlr inputs for recording to the computer. I think it is embarrassing if Bose $600 product is using generic driver.

At least there should be 2 stereo streams we could pan to left and right.

You have zEQ and ParaEQ available on the full-feature channels. For the low-end, you'd probably want to be selective about which inputs you want to EQ rather than applying something to all inputs.

Hi ST,

Not sure why do you mention "widest range of devices". I'm only talking about two: Bose mixer (T4S) and Windows OS.

Bose should offer optional proper Windows drivers for download for people who wants to use mixer for multi-track recording.

I'm sure Bose was testing multi-track driver and opted rather for "easy of use" or "plug & play" driver for dummies. Let them still use Generic Windows driver.

But for advanced users why not to publish multi-track driver at least as beta driver?

Much cheaper Zoom H5 and H6 recorders have multi-track Windows (7, 8, 10) ASIO drivers.

We live in 2019 and we do not only perform live but recording (home or in field) too. It is such a waste of nice gear.

Hi Bun,

The ToneMatch mixers work with several operating systems and multiple versions that support USB Audio. That's possible because Bose relies on the native USB drivers in the operating systems.

Unfortunately, the native drivers don't support your needs for multi-track recording.

Thanks for posting your feature request.

Thought I'd start a thread about issues with the T4s with a view to having them resolved by future firmware updates. (I have already installed latest firmware v1.1.4)

T4s Compressors Comp1, Comp2 and Comp3 all show 0dB by default on the unit but manual shows 3dB, 5dB, 8dB respectively as the default position. (T1 has defaults as 3dB, 5db and 8dB as the respective defaults.) This needs to be fixed.

ZEQ

When turning Low, Mid and High from 0.00dB to a negative value and then returning them back to zero, display shows -0.00db (i.e. with a negative sign at the front).  Whilst this is a minor issue, it’s still a programming error and should be fixed.

Thank you. Despite all the similarities, the T4S and T8S are different from the T1.  Some of the behaviors from the T1 were not carried forward to the new models. Some T1 owners have been disappointed when they expected the new models to behave the same way.  In this respect, the new mixers may suffer by comparison, but for people who did not have experience with the T1, it seems not to have been an issue.

Bose is using a different approach and algorithm for the Reverb settings in the T4S/T8S. <-- Please follow the link for more information.

I understand why you might prefer the time units in seconds as they were in the T1. The T4S/T8S use a different reverb engine, and the time is expressed as a percentage of the time range for each reverb type.

The majority (excepting the Reverb change) of what I have highlighted should have been caught by quality control before formal release of the T4s unit. I do realise and accept that some things will always slip through the net.

However, whilst I can live with most of the issues I'm having,  the "Delay Settings Changing by itself" issue is a real and immediate problem.  This is a fault and not a request for a "like to have". This needs addressing urgently.  I've spent almost £500 on a unit that I'm wary of using live until this is resolved.

Changes / updates required (i.e. bugs) to make the unit function as it should must take priority over "like to have" changes / updates requested.

IMO, bugs should have a separate thread from requests otherwise they will just get lost amongst the myriad of other requests.

The Delay Settings do not change by themselves. They only change if you go into the Delay settings and switch the Delay Type.

When you turn the Rotary Selector to Delay, the current settings are displayed. Looking at the current settings does not trigger a change.

To change (or lose those settings) you have to turn the Type knob (e.g., from Digital to Analog).  As you observed, when you change the delay type, the default values for the that type are loaded. 

I found this disconcerting when I noticed it and I was disappointed that the behavior was different than it was in the T1. In practice - it has not been a problem once I understood I had to take a deliberate action to change things.

Suggestion: Save settings you like as a Scene before experimenting. Then it's quick and easy to get back to a previous known state.

Bose is monitoring this discussion thread and they assess the priority of each request.

Let me explain the issue that I am having.

Firstly, I installed the latest firmware 1.1.4 and reset (rebooted) the mixer as per Bose instructions.

I then set up a vocal setting: selected preset OM5 and Delay Type "Digital", setting up a delay that I liked. I then turned the Delay Type Selection knob to try out an "Analog" setting and did likewise. So far so good.

I then went to try an A-B test of the "Digital" and "Analog" delays that I set up.

However, when I re-selected the "Digital" option my settings had not been saved but were now replaced with: Time 350ms; Feedback 20%; and Mix 20%.  Then reselecting "Analog" showed that my settings had also been lost and also replaced with: Time 350ms; Feedback 20%; and Mix 20%.

Selecting "Tape" also displayed the same Time 350ms; Feedback 20%; and Mix 20% settings and I hadn't changed anything there.

In summary, if I don't move the selection knob, my settings are saved but, if I do move the knob, all the settings are lost and replaced with something else.

This problem is not restricted to the "Delay Parameters".

I can't believe that this is the way this unit is meant to work.  The T1 Tonematch (I have three) works perfectly in this regard and always saves whatever settings I make.

Now either I have got a faulty unit or there are bugs in the firmware programming.

I don't mean this to sound like a rant.  I am a long term and avid Bose user but I am far from enamoured with this T4s as it currently operates.

If the above is how this unit is meant to work, i.e. make your settings and never move any knobs thereafter, then I can't see me keeping this unit.

When you move to a different effect type, the default values for that type are loaded.



This problem is not restricted to the "Delay Parameters".

I can't believe that this is the way this unit is meant to work.  The T1 Tonematch (I have three) works perfectly in this regard and always saves whatever settings I make.

The engineering intent for features where you have multiple types of the same DSP function (e.g.,  Delay, Mod, Reverb) is:  when you switch from one type to another, the default values for the new type are loaded. 

I understand this is not as convenient as the T1 was when doing direct A-B testing. To compare different settings:

  • Save the current settings as Scene "A"
  • Make the change(s) to your settings
    • If you like the new result or want to compare it to Scene "A" save the current settings as Scene "B"
  • Then switch back and forth between the Scenes


Now either I have got a faulty unit or there are bugs in the firmware programming.

This is different from the way the T1 operates, and if you preferred the T1 design, the T4S/T8S approach would look like a fault or a bug. 

I don't mean this to sound like a rant.  I am a long term and avid Bose user but I am far from enamoured with this T4s as it currently operates.

If the above is how this unit is meant to work, i.e. make your settings and never move any knobs thereafter,

You can always move the knobs, however doing A-B testing involves a different approach. You have to save your settings if you want to change something and switch back and forth. I have other non-Bose devices around here that operate the same way.  Some of those devices have an undo function; others do not.

then I can't see me keeping this unit.

Jim S.

I'm sorry you feel this way.

Bose is following the discussion here, and they have heard comments about this from customers through different channels. It's on the radar, but I can't tell you if this will be changed. Bose doesn't talk about product changes that may or may not be in development.

Hi, many thanks for the response.

I get the “save Scene A / Save Scene B” scenario and there is a certain logic in returning to “factory settings” when the “selector knob” is turned or changed.

Though, personally, I believe that the “T1 Implementation” in this area (which saves all changes) is far more elegant and puts Bose ahead of competitors’ digital offerings in this area.

Bose should consider incorporating the “T1 Implementation” into their T4 and T8 offerings.

=============================

Going back to the issue I was describing, I’ve had a further look at what is happening.

The above table shows the “Delay Factory Settings” from the T4s.

When I “lose” any changes I make, all the types revert to “Mix 20%; Time 350ms; Feedback 20%”, i.e. “digital” and “analog” don’t have their default own particular Factory Settings  returned but inherit those closer to “tape” as above. 

It’s worth noting that “tape” on the unit defaults to “Mix 20%; Time 350ms; Feedback 20%” as well and not “Mix 30%; Time 350ms; Feedback 30%” as in the table above.  This could, of course, be a wrong definition in the manual.

So the problem is not as extreme as I thought but still not totally in line with “restoring factory settings”.

Incidently, the  “compressors 1, 2 and 3” also don’t return to the factory settings as defined in the manual (see below).

 

They all reset back to a “gain” of 0dB: effectively making them all the same. So again, not completely returning to "factory settings".

======================================

In summary, still trying to love my T4s but still in love with my T1s!  LOL

Thanks to everyone on the forum who responded.

Kind regards,

Jim S.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for sticking with the conversation. I noticed some other places where the T4S/T8S default values don't match the owner's guide table of factory settings. I'll see what I can find out and I'll start a new topic or write an article about the differences when I know more.

ST

I would like to be able to save my FX settings on more than just one effect per scene. eg, I may use a chorus on one song, a tremolo on another, a phaser on another, etc. As it is now, if I dial in a chorus setting, then switch to flanger, the chorus is reset back to defaults when I select it again. I understand and totally accept the fact that you can't use say a flanger and a tremolo at the same time, but I would love to set all of these individually and save them with my scene, bypassing them manually as needed during my gig. I'm new, btw, but so far I'm fairly fascinated by the T4S. 

Yes I can save each FX setting as a different scene, but I was hoping to reserve those scenes for the different venues I play. I'll live with it for the time being. I know nothing about what goes into engineering a device like this, but it seems quite possible to implement the ability to save all the FX parameters on a per-scene basis. Hopefully in the future! Thanks for the suggestion!

Personally I’d rather see a future iteration of the TXX mixers extended in physical size by 30% and a proper FX section added where we the users can tweak any effect and mixture of effect and save them to a dozen saved buttons on the front of the unit.

only then to delve into a menu based effect adjustment if / when needed.

These would also be independent of scenes so you don’t lose settings just by changing scenes.

If producing this level of excellence is too prohibitive work a deal with a stomp box producer and incorporate something like a VE-20, but enhance it with the saved selection of push buttons as above.

Oh man, one of the main reasons I have this is because of the small size. I was just fed up with hauling a 10-channel mixer and a stand to put it on. I'm a solo acoustic performer, and when I was all set up it looked like a band was playing. Lol. This mixer has really helped me shave off some excess fat to carry. Mounts on a tray attached to my mic stand, 24-inch mic cord, short cord from pedal board to mixer. It's a big change. I'm using my T4 for the first time here in a few hours, but I've been using a friends' T1 and it's been wonderful.

Yes I can save each FX setting as a different scene, but I was hoping to reserve those scenes for the different venues I play. I'll live with it for the time being. I know nothing about what goes into engineering a device like this, but it seems quite possible to implement the ability to save all the FX parameters on a per-scene basis. Hopefully in the future! Thanks for the suggestion!

This brings up a question I've asked before.   When Bose made the T4/8, why didn't they put enough memory in to allow unlimited scenes to be saved.   Memory is very inexpensive and the coding required to make the change should be minimal.  They could have even given us a slot for an SD memory card.   I guess someone will ask why you need that many scenes.  IMO, why not?
