Bose® T1 ToneMatch: A Closer Look

Get more from your Bose L1 system with the T1 ToneMatch

Musicians and DJs who have used Bose L1 systems know about their consistent tonal balance, 180 degrees of horizontal coverage and portability. But the best kept secret just may be the T1 ToneMatch audio engine.

The T1 ToneMatch engine is more than a mixer. It's a multi-channel digital audio device containing the most advanced tone-shaping tools from Bose, including a comprehensive library of ToneMatch presets and proprietary zEQ. This technology from Bose is designed to get you sounding your best faster than ever before.

The ToneMatch accommodates up to four sources and provides a complete suite of studio-class effects and processing for each channel. It can be used with an L1 system, as a personal direct box when connecting to larger front-of-house systems, or as a USB recording interface. Its large backlit LCD screen and 3 encoder knobs provide quick access to modes, effects and parameters, including ToneMatch presets and zEQ. All this comes in a rugged, compact size that fits in your backpack or cable bag.

Customizable ToneMatch presets for you and your instruments

What makes the T1 ToneMatch audio engine unique is Bose ToneMatch technology. It can be difficult to properly EQ an instrument or microphone at a gig or during soundcheck. There's never enough time to dial in everything, and often the right equipment isn't available to make the necessary adjustments. It's a constant struggle from venue to venue, and it's less than satisfying to perform when you're not comfortable with your tone. That's why Bose invented ToneMatch technology -- to make it easier for you to achieve ideal sound and focus on the performance.

ToneMatch presets remove the guesswork from the EQ process. It's as if a skilled studio engineer listened to the sound of your particular instrument or microphone being played through an L1 system, made a series of EQ adjustments to optimize the sound, and then saved those changes as a preset to be instantly recalled at the touch of a button. That's the power of ToneMatch technology.

Each ToneMatch preset is custom-designed by a skilled Bose engineer, often working directly with instrument and microphone manufacturers including Taylor, Gibson, Breedlove, Ovation, Takamine, Audix and more. This ensures that the source sounds the way the manufacturer intended when played through a Bose L1 system.

If you don't see a specific preset for your instrument or microphone, don't worry -- Bose includes general presets for acoustic guitars with piezo pickups, along with presets for popular microphones and instruments such as bass, mandolin and violin. Access to presets is easy -- they're organized into banks: vocal microphones, electric guitars, acoustic guitars, keyboards, basses, percussion, winds and horns, and more. Select a bank, load a preset and play.

To refine your sound further, use the ToneMatch's zEQ feature. This EQ technology automatically adjusts the range of tone controls to match the instrument or microphone selected, making it easier to fine-tune your sound. Unlike the fixed EQ ranges of conventional mixers, zEQ provides low, mid and high ranges for each ToneMatch preset, allowing you to cut or boost specific frequency ranges tailored for each instrument or microphone. With the T1's zEQ, you don't have to use your mixer's one-size-fits-all EQ section.

A digital mixer with on-board effects, scene recall, and flexible I/O

Built-in effects: As you'd expect from a high-end digital mixer, the T1 ToneMatch gives you a suite of effects and dynamics processing. Choose from three delay types, ten modulation effects, and seven dynamics processors and assign them independently to each channel. Five different reverbs can be globally assigned, with individual channel controls for delay time, mix level, and brightness. The T1 ToneMatch audio engine also includes a chromatic tuner that can be accessed from any channel.

Recall your settings: The Scenes feature lets you store your customized settings for specific gigs and recall them at a touch of a button. This feature helps simplify setup when you're using an L1 system in different venues. The T1 ToneMatch audio engine comes with five predefined scenes and the ability to save a total of ten.

Flexible I/O: The T1 features four independent channels that offer a great amount of flexibility for easy connection to a wide variety of sources. Channels 1 through 3 feature mic/line analog inputs accepting balanced XLR or unbalanced 1/4" audio cables. These channels also include 1/4" preamp outputs for connecting dry output signals to other gear -- like a standalone recorder. Channel 4/5 accepts one or two balanced or unbalanced 1/4" cables -- perfect for analog stereo connections to keyboards, mixers and computers. Each channel includes level and trim controls with signal/clip LEDs, dedicated audio and FX mute buttons, and a dedicated Edit button to access that channel's effects and processing.

With the T1 ToneMatch's 1/4" Aux output, you can create an independent submix of channels 1-4/5, pre-fader or post-fader, with or without effects and EQ. There is a master 1/4" analog output, and a ToneMatch port to connect the digital output from the T1 ToneMatch audio engine to the ToneMatch port on the L1 Model II system.

Compatible with the entire Bose L1 family -- or any other rig

The T1 ToneMatch audio engine easily connects to Bose L1 Model II and Model 1S systems via the included digital ethercon cable. With the L1 Model II and Model 1S, there's no need for a power supply -- the T1 is powered by the L1. To connect the T1 ToneMatch audio engine to the L1 Compact -- or another powered PA speaker -- a 1/4" analog cable and a T1 ToneMatch power supply is all you need.

With Bose's advanced ToneMatch technology, the level of tone customization that most musicians can experience only in a recording studio is now available on stage for any performance. And with its built-in suite of studio-class effects and processing, the T1 ToneMatch audio engine makes it easier than ever to dial in your signature sound.
