Aux In channels on the T8S question
Just after a wee bit helping understanding the intricacies of using the Aux In channel(s) with a T1 Tonematch.
I have a gig on Friday - and it will be in a packed pub with not too much time to set up all our gear (there is a lot !).
There are only 3 of us so don’t panic when you see what we are plugging into our Bose L1mk2 plus two B1’s. Depending on space, I may add in a powered PA speaker or two (Yamaha DXR12’s), but adding those in or not doesn’t cause me much confusion, although I know the more speakers I add, there will be more potential for feedback !
So, the question relates to adding my bandmate’s T1 to my T8S.
I’m a bit confused if the two Aux In channels are independant of Ch 7&8, or not.
I was planning to connect my Roland RD800 e.piano into Ch 7&8, for stereo (assuming I end up using two speakers to get stereo).
I was then looking at connecting my older bandmate, Allan’s T1 to Aux 1 or 2.
Trying to find a volume control for that Aux channel, I found in the Pan/Aux section of the rotary dial, an option to route Aux 1&2 to Ch 7&8, and this gave a volume control each for Aux 1 & 2.
Will I overload Ch8 with my Piano (Right side of stereo) and the signal from Allan’s T1 ??
Perhaps I got this all wrong ! Perhaps I should NOT choose to route Aux 1&2 to Ch 7&8 ?
If I don’t do that, is there a volume control for the Aux 1 channel, if I plug his T1 into it Aux 1, or will the T1’s Master Volume be the only volume control, and the T8S’ Master volume control.
Bit unsure the best way to set it up. This is what I thought I was going to do, until I got confused !
Will the suggested set-up below work fine, or will Ch 8 (R side of piano) & Aux 1 be muddied by this ?
I will use Ch1-3 for :
Ch1 : Vocal mic (Shure SM58)
Ch2 : Acoustic guitar with Piezo (for National resonator guitars)
Ch3 : Electric guitar (mic’d up with SM57)
I was hoping to leave Ch4-6 for our new younger bandmate, Thomas. He will use them as follows :
Ch4 : Vocal & Harmonica (acoustic) mic (Shure SM57)
Ch5 : Acoustic guitar with Piezo (for National resonator guitar)
Ch6 : E. Guitar amp for amplified harmonica (mic’d up with Shure SM57)
Ch7&8 : E.piano in Stereo (both Thomas and I will take turns playing this)
Aux 1 : Allan’s T1 Tonematch mixer (using 3 channels for vocal mic, and 2 acoustic guitar channels)
Thanks for your help, in advance - and I hope it all makes sense !!!
