ToneMatch® Presets This article is about using a Mixer to allow more than two inputs to use ToneMatch® Presets.

Assumptions

  • You have more than two inputs requiring presets.
  • Two or more of those inputs are similar, for example: microphones that are of the same make and model.
  • You have a stereo mixer or one that has two distinct busses.

General Principles

For the following discussion, a "side" of the mixer is either Left or Right, or it could be a "buss" or "alt" channel routing.

  • Pool one group of similar inputs to one side of the mixer.
  • Take the pooled output (one side of the mixer) to Power Stand Channel 1 and use a Preset that is appropriate for the input.
  • Pool another group of similar inputs to the other side of the mixer. Sometimes the similarity is that these inputs do not share a common Preset - so you will use Preset 00.
  • Take the pooled output (the other side of the mixer) to Power Stand Channel 2 and use a Preset that is appropriate for the input, or Preset 00.

Examples

2 Vocals, 2 Guitars

You have two vocal microphones - Shure SM 58 - Recommended Preset #14 You have two similar Acoustic Guitars with pickups - Recommended Preset #40
