You can daisy chain (connect) one T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine into another.

In this example, we have two T1 ToneMatch Audio Engines. (T1®s)

  1. T1® on the left connected to the L1 Model II through the ToneMatch® Port
  2. T1®on the right connected to the T1® on the left through the Master Analog ¼ inch jack to the other T1® Channel 4

Use a balanced (Tip-Ring-Sleeve) cable if possible.


The output from the T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine Master Output is a balanced mono 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve and the input on the T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine Channel 4 or Channel 5 is a balanced mono 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve so use a cable like this.

1/4" Male TRS to 1/4" Male TRS  Cable.

1/4" TRS Balanced Patch Cable (audiopile.net)



If you use an unbalanced cable (Tip-Sleeve) between the first and second T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine, you will have a lower signal to noise ratio than using a balanced cable (Tip-Ring-Sleeve). This means you will have more noise, and because you will have to turn up the volume on the second T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine you will be amplifying the noise.


This allows the performer using T1® #1 to control the overall volume of both T1®s. If the performer controlling T1® # does not adjust the volume of Channel 4, Changing the Master Volume maintains the relative balance between T1® #1 and T1® #2


Notes:

Here's how you can do the same thing with a L1 Compact

In this example, we have two T1 ToneMatch Audio Engines. (T1®s)

  1. T1® on the left connected to Compact Channel 2
  2. T1®on the right connected to the T1® on the left through the Master Analog ¼ inch jack to the other T1® Channel 4

This allows the performer using T1® #1 to control the overall volume of both T1®s. If the performer controlling T1® # does not adjust the volume of Channel 4, Changing the Master Volume maintains the relative balance between T1® #1 and T1® #2
