ToneMatch® Presets This article is about using a Mixer to allow more than one input per S1 Pro System channel to use ToneMatch® Presets.

Mixer to S1 Pro to share Presets

Assumptions

  • You have more than two inputs requiring Presets.
  • Two or more of those inputs are similar, for example: microphones that are of the same make and model.
  • You have a stereo mixer or one that has two distinct busses.

General Principles

For the following discussion, a "side" of the mixer is either Left or Right, or it could be a "buss" or "alt" channel routing.

  • Pool all microphone inputs to one side of the mixer (e.g. LEFT).
    • Take the pooled output (LEFT output the mixer) to S1 Pro channel 1 with ToneMatch switch set to Microphone.
  • Pool all other inputs to the other side of the mixer (e.g. RIGHT)

If these inputs are not acoustic guitars with pickups run the mixer RIGHT output to S1 Pro channel 2 with the ToneMatch switch set to Off.

  • Take the pooled output (the other side of the mixer) to S1 Pro channel 2 and use a Preset that is appropriate for the input (Mic Guitar Off).
    • Take the pooled output (RIGHT output on the mixer) to S1 Pro channel 2
    • If the inputs are acoustic guitars with pickups set the ToneMatch switch to Guitar
    • If the inputs are NOT acoustic guitars with pickups set the ToneMatch switch to Off

Example

2 Vocals, 2 Guitars

  • You have two vocal microphones. Route these through the mixer to S1 Pro channel 1 with ToneMatch switch to Mic.
  • You have two similar Acoustic Guitars with pickups. Route these through the mixer to S1 Pro channel 2 with ToneMatch switch to Guitar.
