Tell us what instrument and microphones you use

In order to make sure we are delivering new ToneMatch presets that meet your needs we would love to gain additional insight into what instruments and microphones you currently use or plan to use with the L1(tm) system and T1 ToneMatch(tm) audio engine. I'm setting up this discussion as a way to capture this information. Please reply and let us know.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Re: Tell us what instrument and microphones you use

Mic-wise Shure 57 & 58 - taken care of...

I play a Tacoma Thunderchief acoustic bass w/ a Fishman Prefix Plus pickup. I've been using the Upright w/ Fishman preset, but would be interested in what you could do...

Re: Tell us what instrument and microphones you use

My main Electric Guitar

--== click the picture to see it in context ==--
I frequently run this on Classic preset #35 (Paul Reed Smith Custom 22) - clean - straight in, especially when playing with an "unplugged" ensemble.

The existing preset is nice but the 513 has several more pickup combinations than an Custom 22. Custom 22 = 5 pickup combinations, 513 = 13.



Acoustic Guitar is a one-off Morgan with passive Fishman under saddle piezo pickup that sounds stunning with the Classic Taylor ToneMatch™ preset #90 (Dreadnaught Finger-Style).



Favourite microphones (for now)
Neumann KMS 105 (Classic Preset #12)
AKG C535 EB (Classic Preset #12)
Beyerdynamic M 88 TG (Classic Preset 07)

Favourite Beach Guitar (okay - outdoors with inclement weather looming).


--== click the picture to see it in context ==--

Funny lookin' I know. A cross-over piezo with super slick neck for the metal-head looking to go "unplugged".

This sounds exactly like most of the super slimline Ovations from the late 80s - the ones with OP24 electronics.

Very characteristic Ovation of the day.

Re: Tell us what instrument and microphones you use

Microphones:
SM 58
Senn. 835 using the 855 preset.

Guitars:
Taylor 414 LE with expression system and the LR Baggs imix (ibeam and element) It's like 3 pickups in one guitar. I wonder how it would sound going into 3 L1s.
I like the taylor grand Aud. fingerstyle and the new GS. I just got the Baggs preset so I'm still testing.

Taylor nylon string with fishman. I had used it flat with pretty good results, but now I'm loving the new nylon preset on the T1.

Godin Multiac nylon: same as above

Taylor T5: Flat when doing solo and t5 preset with groups.
