  • The bracket that sits parallel to the floor has a bevel on the top. The bevel should run down, facing you. If the bevel runs down away from you, the bracket is upside down and the T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine will not sit properly on top of it.
correct - bevel running down, facing you

This is how I secure the T1® to the T1® Microphone Stand Bracket[1]

  1. There is a velcro strap on the black ToneMatch cable.
  2. I use the velcro to secure the ToneMatch cable to the microphone stand just above the Microphone Stand Adapter (the thing that clamps around the mic stand).
  3. Then I insert the ToneMatch cable into the T1®. It locks into place.
  4. At this point, most people would put the T1® on the bracket and attach the other cables.
  5. I insert all the other cables into the T1® before I put it on the bracket. I do it this way because I have all my cables strapped to the microphone stand (I don't take them off between gigs). So there's no hanging stress from those either.
  6. Finally, I set the T1® on top of the bracket.

In the picture above, I am using all the inputs and the cables are heavy. But since I have all the cables secured by a velcro strap, there's no chance that the T1® will come off the microphone stand bracket.

The white cable is a network cable (Cat-5) instead of the ToneMatch® cable

Here's how I have one of my microphone stands setup. The T1® Microphone Stand Bracket is attached and I never remove it.

All the cables are also strapped to the microphone stand. I leave the cables attached all the time. This saves a great deal of time during setup and teardown.

I used a white background so that you could see the wires. Normally they don't stand out like this visually. Notice that even if the T1® were to get knocked off the bracket the cables are acting as safety tethers.

The black bag is one of the original Cylindrical Radiator® bags that came with my L1®. Years ago I got some heavy duty bags for the Cylindrical Radiator® and it turns out that the stock bags work great for holding microphone and light stands.

Remember to pack the Bracket (arm) in the T1® Lid.
