This will be obvious to any L1 user but I just had glaring evidence of the value of presets. I am playing in a friend's wedding this Friday and I am running my guitar and vocals through the church's house system, no L1. :-(
My buddy sent me pictures of the house mixer and there is no individual channel EQ. My plan was to run my vocals and guitar into my Alesis mini mixer and run a line out to the house system.
I set up my L1 (model 2) and I was practicing the song running guitar and vocals into the T1.
To get my levels set, I got out the Alesis, plugged my guitar and mic into that and ran a line out the L1. The difference was shocking! I have always appreciated the EQ Presets but I have never jumped back and forth with the same mic and guitar from Presets (with the T1) to no Presets (with the Alesis) I was able to get the Alesis to sound OK with some tweaking but it lacks a certain smoothness that is hard to describe. Really makes me appreciate the Presets!
Anyway, I had been putting off getting a power supply for the T1. The power supply is being overnighted, it will arrive tomorrow and I'll run everything through the T1 and out to the house system!
Enjoy the day!
