TC Helicon Harmony G-XT with L1 Feedback Problem

Forum: Vocals
ngray
I have recently experienced severe feedback using the pedal...so much that i cant use it anymore. I just bought the pedal last year. any suggestions?Read More...
I too am having issues with my G-XT. In the middle of a song, I am experiencing heavy delay, so that the words are repeated through my Bose L1 a few seconds later than they are sung (I am not using a monitor, and the Bose is about 5 feet behind me over my left shoulder). I don't have an instrument connected to it, just my mic, and have only the Reverb Hall Fx on, with doubling (harmonies off). The Fx setting is at about 9 o'clock. gain at 12. This has happened with other people's sound...Read More...

T8 noise on outputs

We bought two T8 mixers and we have been using one of them at numerous gigs so far and we like it a lot. Both have the same symptoms I will describe. Did anyone notice that the main outputs either XLR or 1/4 has a lot of white static noise on those lines? Set it up link this: With the T8 master volume all the way down, all channels muted and the output of the T8 plugged into an external amp or powered speaker, no matter what type (tried on th S1, L1, and several others with same results),...Read More...

Bluetooth IEM?

Interesting that the Bose Connect app can connect two channels, eg: S1 Pro and Bose Earphones, could this be a solution for In Ear Monitoring? My concern, for anything other than streaming backing tracks and playing along live via the S1 Pro XLR/Jack inputs, would be the standard Bluetooth latency. For example if I used the iPad/iPhone apps for the guitar and voice effects then the 200ms delay from strum-to-sound would render it useless.. But I see the Bose QuietControl 30 earphones have the...Read More...

L1 Model II with T1® connection to a remote speaker

hi, so i have the model L1-II T1 and base2. i use an ipad for my muisic and connect via RCA connections to the T1 from my ipad. sometimes its neccesary to have a speaker at the other end of the hall, is there a way of hooking up either wirelss speaker or a wired speaker to the T1 based on the inputs im already using suhcthat the ipad music and my mic will go through both or multiple speakers? ThanksRead More...
ST thank you for all the useful insights and experiences you shared. Very good you noticed about the bass. A customer actually said that to me about the bass. I have to remember that. Yes when I sing I have it in Dj playback with tracks - I will change that while I am singing and also make sure b2 bass is set as you indicated. From what you suggested I think I will go with the S1 Pro. Most probable wireless but we see. Thank you so much for helping me. PatriziaRead More...

Bose connect app with 2 (two) S1 Pro speakers?

I had already bought one S1 Pro in May but when I received news that the Bose Connect App was out and functionable for 2 S1 Pro's...I immediately ordered ANOTHER one and tried the app as soon as I brought my S1 Pro's sister home. I cannot make it work at all. Anybody out there lucky enough to have 2 of these S1 Pros and succeeded using this app? Directions are scarce but if it IS functioning for someone, I must be doing something wrong. Anybody?! ThanksRead More...
Hi Steves Off The Couch, Good thoughts - but No - that won't work because: The T1 Master Output is balanced (mono) The S1 Pro Aux input is unbalanced stereo No - that won't work because: The S1 Pro Line Out is balanced (mono) The S1 Aux input is unbalanced stereo You could rig up the connections with some adapters but you would lose the Balanced connections between the components and make the whole system more vulnerable to line noise. I don't recommend that. STRead More...

T4S cut out after an hour, overheating?

Used my T4S with two L1 MKll's and two B2's today and wow - the sound was superb. We were outdoor on a warm day (27 deg in the shade) .... and all the control gear was in the shade. There was a mild breeze so our audience was able to sit in the sun without undue discomfort. After an hour the system cut out and we had to revert to a single stack and a T1. Having removed the T4S from the setup and turned one L1 system off - I looked closely at the T4S while a colleague of mine continued to...Read More...
The hottest I've had these working in and didn't fail was 33 deg in direct sunlight. I had a 6" fan blowing in at the front of each stand for added draught. I do feel that while not eye candy the silver reflective nature of the plastic does prevent heat getting to the powerstand. The T4S and T1 - were a different story - won't go there.... LolRead More...

Wireless Mic sound is "Muffled"

I am the owner of a small spin studio and recently purchased the F1 speaker with the subwoofer. We have 2 wireless microphones both the same. SHURE Model BLX1. We have just upgraded from the L1 and the clarity of our voices while cueing is so much worse. We can't figure out why this is happening. Have called Bose Support twice with no answer. Is there any way I could get an answer on which mic..built for fitness classes...is the BEST for this system?? Thank you GretchenRead More...
The F1 has a much more mid-range focused sound that that is less forgiving to lower quality analog mixers/sources. The L1 Classic/M1/MII speakers tend to be much clearer and more "hi-fi" in my experience.Read More...

tap tempo

According to the Instruction manual, the new mixers feature a "built in tap tempo delay". But I cannot seem to find any further mention of it in the manual. Please tell me where the tap function is to be found and how a foot switch can be connected. Thanks.Read More...
It seems to my T4S that you have to tap at over 125BPM to get Tap Tempo to work. You can tap in 1/8 notes to lower tempos, then halve the time.Read More...

Two S1 Pros vs. L1 Compact (or other system)

I am a professional magician. I, currently, have a Bose S1 Pro for smaller shows and a Carvin Stagemate (S400) with a matching extension speaker. I use a lot of music in my show and I’m picky about my sound. The S1 Pro does an amazing job for its size and is very convenient. After using the S1 Pro for one week, I did a corporate banquet with my Carvin system last week and decided I was no longer satisfied with the sound. The Carvin was a compromise but I settled on it because it runs on...Read More...

S1 with A1 packlite power amp and 2 B1....

Just wonder if A1 packlite power amp + B1 bass module connected to the S1 Pro would work for that extra bass sound if needed? Would this combination work? Is it worth investing in A1 packlite amp (I do own L1 model II with 2 B1 bass modules already) to increase the bass frequency? any suggestions greatly appreciated...Read More...
Thanks ST, will follow the link soon. cheers....Read More...

Buzz noise when plugged in power outlet - but fine when on battery

I've noticed when I plug my S1 Pro into an outlet, I get a lot of buzz/hissing sound when it's turned to the halfway point (even a bit under). I've tried a few power outlets along with a power bar and have the same issue. Is there a trick to minimize this? When it operates on battery, there is no hiss. I've also tried a power different cable so I don't think that's the issue. I realize it could have something to do with what instrument is plugged into it however, again, that noise doesn't...Read More...
I can't say for sure, I just know when I turned up the volume on the S1, the hiss/static was awful. I had to dial it to about 40% on the S1 to get the hiss down and then crank the keyboard up but you could still hear it.Read More...

Music playback

I have the L1 B2 system with the ts8 mixer. Only used it for a few gigs so still learning. I cant for the life of me figure out how to play back music during our breaks. Preferably through an ipad so we can use Pandora, etc.. i tried the flashdrive but of course it only takes mp3/wav so downloading from itunes is a whole different set of issues converting. Really want the ipad or iphone hookup. Seems having bluetooth would have been an obvious add. The manual is really limited, especially...Read More...
Since you have a T8S, Use a 1/8” stereo cable from the outpt of the iPad or iPhone to 1/4” inputs on channels 9+10. This will provide a summed output to the main. If you have two L1M2 then you can pan channels 9+10 hard left and hard right for stereo. I use this setup with an iPod Nano. When my son came by last Saturday with some tracks from his band’s studio work we just plugged his iPhone into the 1/8” stereo jack, set his volume to about 60% and checked the input levels on 9+10 and he was...Read More...

T4S with Mackie mixer, L1 Model II with B1

ST, can I use TS4 along with mackies mixer. Because my TS4 not have enough channels. If yes, how to connect from L1B2 to TS4 and Mackies mixer? thank you.Read More...
Hi peterdpham, You've got a couple of choices here. The easiest is to turn down the volume on the laptop. If you want to get more involved, you can redirect the USB B from PC to T4S Channel 4. Please see USB B from PC for more details. This will let you control the volume from the laptop with the T4S channel 4 volume control. Does that help? STRead More...

Bose customer service is excellent!

I've owned and used Bose L1s for a few years now and they have been dead reliable. Recently I had the top and bottom plastic caps on one of my top array sections get damaged during load in so I called Bose to order the replacement parts. Much to my surprise (and amazement!) they offered to send me the two parts for free including shipping! I'm not sure what the cost would have been but I imagine the bottom cap is expensive since it has the connector built in. While I was on the phone I...Read More...

Headphones

Speedy
Hi, I am considering buying a T1, but just realized there is no headphones socket. I really need one to use as a monitor for some gigs. I am a soloist with acoustic guitar. For example roadside restaurant, master volume fairly low, can only stand behind my L1-1S, so it's often a challenge to hear myself. With headphones I can hear myself and have confidence that the mix is good. I have an S1 I currently use as a monitor, but it adds a bit too much overall volume. It also appears you can't...Read More...

extra speakers other than L1

At present I own L1 Model II with B2 Base and T1. I am in the process of purchasing following speakers and new T8s mixer. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/K12.2--qsc-k12.2-2000w-12-inch-powered-speaker Can someone please guide me on the best way of connecting speakers with L1 Model II? Most of the times I have 3 singers and 4 instruments (percussion, harmonium, rhythm and tabla). As you can see from the instruments list that I play indian music. Any help is appreciated. ThanksRead More...
Earlier I asked about connecting QSC speakers along with L1. As mentioned earlier I ended up buying another L1 Model II with B2 base. Can you please let me know to connect both L1 with the new T8S?Read More...

s1 pro vs Yamaha stagepass 600i

hey everyone I'm deliberating between the boss s1 to stagepass 600i. I need speaker for outdoor and in door of 100 +- people capacity. I'm working as a dancing teacher - many styles, different kind of music sometime need to be very loud and some times less. I'm right before buying the s1 and I want to make sure that it good for my needs. low weight great money value bluetooth just not sure about the powerful music. thx a lotRead More...
@saxman sounds perfectly reasonable and similar to my situation. I use the S1 in smaller venues or where power might not be available. Then use our L1M2 where I need more coverage. You could also consider using the S1 as a monitor from an Aux Out of the StagePass if needed. Use it on battery power to make it easier to position. Just a thought. I’m using the S1 with the L1 in certain venues where I need additional sound coverage that is awkward to get to like behind me or off to the side...Read More...

Hi Newguy, To run mono, just connect your inputs (Left and Right outputs from your source) to two channels on the ToneMatch mixer, and connect the L1 systems as shown in my post above . You don't have to make any changes to the settings to run mono. STRead More...

Backing Tracks from iPad to T1

Hi folks I am wondering if anybody can shed some light on backing tracks for live playing. I use an iPad from which I go out of the headphone socket using a splitter cable, mini stereo jack to left/right mono jacks, and these are going into channel 4/5 of my T1. During most gigs I have to manually adjust the volume of some tracks as some are louder and fuller than others. Of course I appreciate this will be due to the quality of particular tracks, some being better than others, but some seem...Read More...
