Boss ME-80 to Compact
The Boss ME-80 is a guitar multi-effects unit for electric guitar. The outputs are designed to be connected to an electric guitar amp. These outputs will not sound their best when connected to a full range system like your L1® connected to your T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine or L1 Compact. For best results, you will want to activate the guitar amp simulators in the Boss ME-80.
Referring to page three of the Boss ME-80 Users Guide. Boss ME 80 Users Guide
To activate the amp simulators you need to connect something to the Record Out / Phones Jack.
Or you can plug an empty jack plug to the Boss ME-80 Record Out / Phones Jack. This turns on the guitar amp simulators. Then you can connect Left (MONO) output to L1 Compact Channel 2. Set the ToneMatch switch to Line Level.
