T4 S Tone Match settings retention failure

Bose T4 S Tone Match Mixer   Delaware, USA

Problem: Won't retain settings in any reverbs, delays or modulator selections. Once I set them & move to the next selection, my settings revert to the factory default settings when I return.

Upon receiving the unit, I used the updater tool to update the unit to version T4s v1.1.4. This did not fix the problem. Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

Re: T4 S Tone Match settings retention failure

Hi fxp125,

Thank you for posting, welcome to the forum!

If you make a change to an FX parameter, then change the FX type, these changes will not be retained in memory unless they're saved to a scene on the T4S/T8S mixer. Similar to a digital guitar pedal, the default settings will be recalled when changing FX type to avoid bad sounds and accidental feedback loops.

T4 S Tone Match settings retention failure

Hi Dylan,

I have 2 T1 Tone Match mixers that I have been using for 5 years. What you suggested is not the way it works. First of all, there are not anywhere near enough scenes to save the amount of settings that I use continuously. I am a sound engineer, not a strummer. The T1 saves all my settings so that I can easily access them instantly while mixing live during a gig. This is required in the live mixing world. As is, the T4 is a product failure. This was supposed to be fixed over a year ago & remedied through an update. If you work for Bose, please look into this for me.

Thank you,

Frank Parker

Re: T4 S Tone Match settings retention failure

Hi Frank,

I understand your confusion if you are familiar with the T1. My previous response is correct for the T4S & T8S - this is not a product fault and the mixer is working as intended. Some of the features and functionality on the new stereo mixers differ from those on the T1, and this was one of the changes implemented for the reasons I mentioned previously.

I will raise a ticket to the Bose engineering team to request that this change be made in an upcoming firmware update if possible.
