If you cannot locate a cable like the one above, you can accomplish the same thing with the combined cable and adaptors below.

and attach each coloured end to one of these,

then connect to any of the ¼ inch inputs for L1 Model I or L1 Classic Channels 1/2/3/4. If you are using a T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine then you can use Channels 1,2,3 or 4/5.

If you are using the this kind of source as backing tracks, you will probably run these two connections to L1 Model I or L1 Classic Channels 3 and 4. In this case you will need to control volume and tone control from the sound source. You will not have much control through the L1 .

If you are using a T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine you will probably use Channel 4/5.


For details about the settings on the T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine see:

Presets

There are two T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine Presets specifically Prerecorded Music or more generally, backing tracks.

Category: DJ/Playback

Preset: Low Volume Music

This is optimized for low volume music. The low bass and treble are boosted to better match the physics/psychoacoustics of our own auditory system.

Category: DJ/Playback

Preset: High Volume Music

This is optimized for higher volume music. Some of the bass is boosted and some of the upper mids are reduced to have a more natural sound at these higher volumes.
