L1® Model I with Mixer to Analog Input
If you are using a mixer instead of a T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine use the mixer to create a mono output and send that to the Model I Power Stand inputs on Channels 1,2,3,4.
If you are used to running stereo with your mixer, please know that the L1® Model I is a mono device. You can still take two outputs from your mixer to two inputs on your Model I (or Classic) Power Stand, but you can use just one connection if you prefer.
Mono - single connection
- If there is a stereo/mono switch then use it and send the mono output to the Model II Power Stand Analog input.
- If there is a Left/mono output then use that and send it to the Model II Power Stand Analog input.
- If there is no way to create a mono output then pan all your mixer inputs all the way to one side (e.g. Left) and then take the mixer for that side (e.g. Left) output and send it to the Model II Power Stand Analog input.
A ¼ inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve connector carrying a stereo signal should not be used with the analog inputs on the Model I. Even though a ¼ inch Tip-Ring-Sleeve connector can carry a stereo signal this is not how this physical connection is used on the Model I (or Classic) Power Stand Power Stand. You will only hear one side of the stereo pair.
The ¼ inch jack analog inputs on the Model I (or Classic) Power Stand are unbalanced so there is no real benefit to running ¼ inch jack Tip-Ring-Sleeve connections to them
