T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine / Routing for Effects

This article addresses some interesting options you have for routing your signal through the T1® to process effects more than once.

For ideas on how you can work with an external effects unit see: T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine / Insert for External Effects

There are several less than obvious things you can do with effects through the T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine.

Parallel Effects

If you want to swap between two sets of effects or run two sets of effects at the same time (for example: two delays, two modulation effects, two reverbs)  try this.

Assume that you are using Channel 1 as the input where you want to do this:

  • Set the effects you want on Channel 1
  • Take a ¼ inch jack cable from the Channel 1 PreAmp Out to Channel 2 input
  • Add the second layer of effects you want to Channel 2
  • Now use the FX Mute buttons for Channels 1 and 2 to set which banks of effects will be used
    • Channel 1 only
    • Channel 2 only
    • Channel 1 and Channel 2 in parallel

Serial Effects

If you want to run some effects and then add more effects in series then take the output of one or more T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine Channels to the Aux Output, then take the Aux Output and use that as the input to another T1® Channel

Assume that you are using Channel 1 as the input where you want to do this:

  • Set the effects that you want on Channel 1
  • Set the Aux tap to Pre
  • Take a ¼ inch jack cable from the Aux Out to Channel 2 input
  • Apply effects that you want applied to the output of Channel 1
  • Now use the FX Mute buttons for Channels 1 and 2 to set which banks of effects will be used
    • Channel 1 only
    • Channel 2 only
    • Channel 1 and Channel 2 in series

Foot Switch to Mute Effects

From Andy-at-Bose UK

First up hook up your vocal mic to, say, Channel 1 on the T1®. Next take a jack lead and connect it to the PRE AMP out on Channel 1. Take this lead and run it through either a keyboard style volume pedal or a make or break style footswitch. Run the signal from the pedal/footswitch into another T1® channel and set this channel up with the chosen vocal effects but make them 100% effect. Adjust the effected channel volume to get the desired blend of dry vocal to effected vocal. The pedal/footswitch will determine how much or if any signal will go to channel 2 and therefore whether or not an effect is added.
