Introduction to Bypass

Hi Folks,

At the recent L1 users conference in Colorado, we found out that a high percentage of T1 owners did not know about the BYPASS feature that's employed in many places in the T1.

The BYPASS feature is extremely useful in deciding if a particular adjustment is giving you the sound you want. It's a form of an A/B switch.

For example, if you want to hear how a particular ToneMatch preset sound on and off, you would use bypass. If you wanted to hear how a particular reverb sounded you could turn it on and off, on and off. And so on. Most effects have this valuable feature.

As an example, here's the screen after you've chosen a Tonematch preset for Channel 1. In this case, I've chosen the preset for an Audix OM5.

What Happens When You Bypass a Preset?

What happens when you select a channel ‘Bypass’ button on the T1® audio engine?
Pressing the ‘Bypass’ button on a channel will change it’s current ToneMatch® preset to the generic “Utility Flat” preset. This enables you to audition between specific ToneMatch® presets and the ‘Utility Flat’ setting, helping you decide which preset you will ultimately choose.
In contrast, the key frequency adjustments for zEQ do not change when the ToneMatch® preset is ‘Bypassed’. For instance say that you originally had a ‘Kick Drum’ preset selected and then pressed ‘Bypass’, the key zEQ adjustment points would still remain focused on fine tuning a kick drum.
