Looking at the owners guide for the Zoom Q8

it looks like you can run a 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve cable from the T1 Master Output or T1 Aux Output to Input 1 or Input 2 of the Zoom Q8.  Use just one Input  (not both) and set the Pan knob straight up the middle.

The T1 Master Output is controlled by the T1 Master Volume (just like the sound you get from the L1).  As you adjust the T1 Master Volume, you may need to adjust the Zoom Q8 input levels. 

If you want to set up a separate mix for recording (e.g., no reverb, more vocal, etc.) use the T1 Aux Output. Here are some notes on how to set that up.

T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine Aux Output

Does that help?

Hi Kan,

Please do not order the Q8 based on the information in my previous post.  There's no way to know for certain that it will work as I described.  I was working from the Q8 owners manual, but since I don't have a Q8 here, I could not do any testing.

Hi Kan,

You can tell Zoom the output of the T1

  • 1/4 inch (6.3 mm) Tip-Ring-Sleeve  
  • balanced,
  • line level
  • mono -
    • that is there is one output not two (left and right)
