PRESS RELEASE
March, 2007

BOSE INTRODUCES ITS MOST ADVANCED SYSTEM FOR MUSICIANS

Frankfurt, Germany - Bose has added to its line of portable line array systems with the release of the new L1™ model II system and T1 ToneMatch™ audio engine.  These new products build on the unique approach to live music amplification the company introduced in 2003 with its CYLINDRICAL RADIATOR™ loudspeaker.  Together, they deliver a combination of tone quality, sound coverage and portability previously unavailable from conventional live sound amplification systems.

The design of the new L1 model II system is inspired by the original BOSE® CYLINDRICAL RADIATOR™ loudspeaker, with a long, vertical row of small, closely-spaced drivers mounted in a tall, slim enclosure.  A new Articulated Array speaker system makes it possible for the L1 model II system to deliver more uniform sound coverage across the stage and into the audience.  This allows performers and listeners to hear full, detailed, tonally balanced sound -- whether they are in front of the speaker or off to the side.

Bose L1 001

The T1 ToneMatch audio engine is a multi-channel audio device available with the L1 model II system.  It gives musicians access to new tone-shaping technologies, providing a complete suite of studio-class effects and processing, as well as additional channels for instruments or microphones.  ToneMatch audio engine presets are custom-engineered for specific instruments and microphones when used with BOSE® L1™ portable line array systems.  These presets are designed to bring musicians closer to the true sound of their voice or instrument at the touch of a button.

Bose T1 005Bose T1 006

Proprietary zEQ tone controls allow for further adjustments once a musician has selected their ToneMatch™ audio engine preset. 

 

While conventional controls are generic by design, with “high,” “mid” and “low” controls spread out across the entire musical spectrum, BOSE® zEQ automatically shifts the range of these controls so they correspond directly to the range of the performer’s voice or instrument.  This innovative technology gives musicians more precise control over their tone, making it easier to fine-tune their sound. 

  1. The L1™ model II system incorporates a completely redesigned power stand that supports the loudspeaker and houses the amplification and additional electronics.  It occupies only a small footprint on stage and features mechanically retracting support legs, allowing it to be more compact for transport and storage.  The L1 model II power stand also includes a simple, direct interface for use with external audio sources such as laptops, MP3 players and DJ mixers.  A ToneMatch audio engine port allows for a single cable digital connection to the T1 ToneMatch audio engine.

 

Bose L1 004

Bose L1 Portable Line Array Systems
The L1 model II system and T1 ToneMatch audio engine are the latest in an expanding line of portable line array systems from Bose.  The L1 product family also includes the L1 model I system, the B1 bass module and the A1 PackLite power amplifier.

Bose L1™ systems eliminate the need for PA speakers, monitors and mixing consoles, so they take only a few minutes to set up and require minimal cargo space.  Designed for small- to medium-sized venues, they provide a viable alternative for musicians who use amplification to perform.

Each performer can use their own L1 system, or some can share.  With the system placed behind them, musicians can play with the knowledge that the same sound they hear on stage is what is projected into the audience.

Bose L1 007

The L1™ model II system and T1 ToneMatch™ audio engine will be available in June 2007.  The complete line of Bose L1 portable line array products can be purchased through authorized BOSE® MusicPartners nationwide.  For more information about Bose products for musicians, call Bose directly or visit their website.

The T1 ToneMatch audio engine is a multi-channel audio device available with the L1 model II system.  It gives musicians access to new tone-shaping technologies, providing a complete suite of studio-class effects and processing, as well as additional channels for instruments or microphones.  ToneMatch audio engine presets are custom-engineered for specific instruments and microphones when used with BOSE® L1™ portable line array systems.  These presets are designed to bring musicians closer to the true sound of their voice or instrument at the touch of a button.

Bose T1 005Bose T1 006

Proprietary zEQ tone controls allow for further adjustments once a musician has selected their ToneMatch™ audio engine preset. 

 

While conventional controls are generic by design, with “high,” “mid” and “low” controls spread out across the entire musical spectrum, BOSE® zEQ automatically shifts the range of these controls so they correspond directly to the range of the performer’s voice or instrument.  This innovative technology gives musicians more precise control over their tone, making it easier to fine-tune their sound. The dial on the T1 has the following sections:

  • Tone Match engine
  • zEQ
  • Para EQ
  • Comp Gate
  • Mod (ulation)
  • Delay
  • Reverb
  • Reverb type
  • Prefs
  • Scenes
  • Aux
  • Tuner
    and back to Tone Match Engine.

    zEQ may be the coolest move of the whole thing. Mike Z at Bose came up with the idea that when you ran an instrument (such as a bass) into a traditional ANY system (even our original), the EQs for bass/mid/treble were set for full range audio.

    zEQ allows you to tell the T1 Tone Match Module what instrument is plugged into a particular channel and suddenly your EQ parameters for bass/mid/treble, should you chose to use the zEQ, are aligned to the frequency range of the instrument. So you would be have 3 ranges of tone control only within the range of notes that instrument produces. Helps you fine tune the sound of your bass differently than your mandolin, for instance.

Bose T1 audio engine - The zEQ functionality... 29-03-07

Bose and Line 6 logo

The T1 ToneMatch audio engine is a multi-channel audio device available with the L1 model II system.  It gives musicians access to new tone-shaping technologies, providing a complete suite of studio-class effects and processing, as well as additional channels for instruments or microphones.  ToneMatch audio engine presets are custom-engineered for specific instruments and microphones when used with BOSE® L1™ portable line array systems.  These presets are designed to bring musicians closer to the true sound of their voice or instrument at the touch of a button.

Bose T1 005

Proprietary zEQ tone controls allow for further adjustments once a musician has selected their ToneMatch™ audio engine preset. 

zEQ
Provides instrument-specific Low/Mid/High tone controls and therefore shaping the tone of an instrument.
Based on the ToneMatch preset, the zEQ function allows you to cut or boost the Low/Mid/High frequency bands from +15 dB to –15dB.

Proprietary zEQ tone controls let you make further adjustments after selecting your ToneMatch preset. Ordinary tone controls are generic by design, with "High," "Mid," and "Low" controls spread out across the entire musical spectrum. But with the touch of a button, Bose zEQ automatically shifts the range of these controls to correspond directly to the range of your instrument. This technology gives you more precise tone control, so it's easier to fine-tune your sound.

 

Here's what happens when you're using it.

By selecting a ToneMatch™ preset, you're telling the T1 something about what you play or that you sing.
Once you do that, zEQ tone controls are automatically programmed to give you the three most useful tonal enhancements for that instrument or for the voice. We found these three top sensitive tonal ranges by listening.

So, for example, if you select a ToneMatch preset for an electric bass, the three tone controls are automatically programmed to provide the three most useful tonal enhancements we could find for the bass guitar.

This is profound. Think about the choices before: you'd have fixed-frequency and fixed-Q tone controls on a mixer that often didn't line up at all with what you wanted to boost or cut, or you'd have tone controls with variable frequency and Q that most people haven't a clue how to optimize.

Bose thought we could do all the work for you. Bose took the time to explore the best center frequencies and the best Q values and custom designed three filters for each ToneMatch preset that tie to the instrument or voice.

Grab any of the three tone controls and they all do something useful.

 

Or even more simply put, you tell it you're playing a guitar, the tone controls (bass, mid, treble) are more focused on the frequency range of THAT INSTRUMENT. Plug in a bass and tell it "Bass guitar" and the bass/mid/treble controls act differently and boost/cut a smaller range of frequencies that are tailored to a bass guitar.

Instead of 20Hz-20kHz as the range for bass/mid/treble, it is suited to your instrument (a bass, for instance, might only cover 30Hz to 1000Hz and that's it).

 

zEQ automatically shifts the tone control center frequencies in response to the preset setting, at the time you choose the preset. zEQ "comes with the preset", invisibly.

Example: Suppose you are a singing bass player (imagine that!). You put your mic into Input 1 and choose a vocal mic preset there, and then you put your instrument into Input 2 and choose a bass guitar preset there. Now you boost the treble on your vocal channel and notice that your voice gets brighter and has stronger sibilants. Next you boost the treble on your instrument and notice that you get more snap and harmonics. The frequency ranges boosted by the two treble controls are different and are appropriate to the ranges of the instruments designated by the presets. Automagically, no secret menu tweaking, no user serviceable parts inside. You don't have to ask for it, you just get it, every time.

 

Bose optimized not only the frequencies but also the exact shape of the tone controls. There is fairly large possible set of control shapes (notches and peaks with different widths, shelves with different steepness, spectral tilts, etc.) and Bose have spend countless hours experimenting to find the best fit for each instrument.

The T1 supports individual zEQ settings for each preset. Although most acoustic guitar presets use the same zEQ, every now and then we find a particular model zEQ that works better with a different zEQ and we incorporate that into the specific preset for that model. Again, that's an example of "the more we know about your instrument, the better presets can be made to help you making it sound good".
