Introduction

Connect the ToneMatch Power Supply to the T8S ToneMatch mixer for power.

Always use the ToneMatch Power Supply connected to the T8S ToneMatch mixer ToneMatch port.

Do not use the ToneMatch port to connect to a L1 Model II. The T8S ToneMatch mixer draws more power than the L1 Model II can supply.


Connect the ToneMatch Power Supply to the T8S ToneMatch mixer for power.

Mono Output

On the back of ToneMatch Mixer[1]s, there is an indication below the Right output (MONO).

Please note
There is no hardwired summed mono output on the ToneMatch mixers. Any input signal that is panned hard Left will not be heard through the Right output. To get a mono output please see below.

General Information

As you move the pan control away from the center, the sound level increases slightly in one direction and decreases in the other. If you pan inputs hard to one side (e.g., Right) and the Right output will be slightly louder (theoretically, up to +3 dB louder) than if you had panned the inputs up the middle. And panned hard Right - there will be no signal at the Left Output.

T8S ToneMatch® mixer

  • Pan all inputs hard RIGHT
  • Use the ¼ inch (6mm) Right Output to a powered loudspeaker (e.g. S1 Pro, L1® Compact, F1 Model 812). For best results use a ¼ inch (6mm) jack Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable

OR

  • Use the XLR Right Output to powered a loudspeaker (e.g. S1 Pro, F1 Model 812). or L1® Compact with XLR to ¼ inch (6mm) jack Tip-Ring-Sleeve.
Note
Anything panned hard LEFT will not be heard at the RIGHT Output.

Mono using Aux Output

You can create a summed mono output by directing your input channels (1-8) to an Aux Output. See Aux Outputs for details.

The Analog input is a ¼ inch balanced input jack.

  1. Set the Trim control on the power stand to the 0 (zero) position.
  2. Connect the T8S ToneMatch mixer Main Output to the Analog Input
  3. Adjust the volume of the T8S ToneMatch mixer Main Output to the maximum output without distortion. This is probably between 10:00 o'clock and 12:00 o'clock on the Master Output
  4. While playing the source, increase the Trim level so that the Signal/Clip indicator glows green or yellow. This will probably be around 9:00-11:00 o'clock on the L1 Model II analog input trim
  5. If the Signal/Clip indicator glows red, decrease the Trim level so that it glows only green or yellow.
