I am new here, and just bought my Bose L1 system. I am still trying to get the hang of this. I am using an ipod, keyboard, and vocals.
Can you all give me some suggestions
1. what do you use on your vocals, to mix them seperately..and to add effects?
2. do you run your ipod straight in, or through
3.as far as tracks, wish I had the time to use cakewalk, etc..but, I don't. Where can I find the most creative tracks..not cheesy? Also, I would love some unplugged tracks/acoustic..
do you know of any?
I am a writer too, so will be changing it up..with my own songs..
Please..if you know any tips or hints, to give me a smooth, sultry vocal..let me know
as vocals are my strength.
Thanks again friends,

Just to let everyone know, we have already dealt with gain staging and Presets in your other discussion. Setting up Vocals with Ev-N/D767A newbie..questions.
Mix vocals with your tracks?
You keep them in separate inputs (e.g. Channel 1 for vocals, Channel 2 for tracks).
There are no effects in the L1® Model I, but if you get a T1® you can have completely separate effects for each of the four Channels. For example, you can have delay/chorus on the vocals (only) and a touch of reverb on the tracks. I am not suggesting that you put reverb on the tracks, but you could do that and not have the reverb impact the vocals.
Depends on the content of the tracks. I could see using effects or different Presets for the iPOD tracks.
Can't help with that one sorry.
Do you have a website or any recordings online?
How about some links to artists who sing in a style similar to yours?
As I mentioned in your other discussion. Setting up Vocals with Ev-N/D767A newbie..questions, please try other presets. Just try all the Vocal Microphone (01-20) and see if there is anything you like better than #10. Take a quick run through them and find one you like.
Then try using the EQ settings on the Remote. There is a lot of variation in the sound at your fingertips.
you have been so kind answering all my questions.
so far, I've made a lot of leaps..but,
still can't quite figure out how to get the vocals right. I am going to the music store to try some more things.
I think you said I need the T1 or 2....
may just buy it, and see if it makes a difference. I am having problems with levels..with adjusting microphone and overall
bk music levels...
thanks again..will let you know what happens.
Tina...Let me add my highest recommendation for adding the T1 to your rig. This little wonder has helped me solve nearly all of my tone-related issues and greatly condensed my live rig footprint. Also...independent of the L1, the T1 is a great big bag( in a tiny box) of audio solutions that can travel with you to any type of situation where you just need to plug n play. Done this many times.
I play acoustic and electric along with trax from my laptop. It has taken many years to amass the highest quaity tracks suitable for live performance. I use Garageband on my mac to build my own, but also use many "found" as well as "bought" trax from the 'net.
I've recently added some backing trax for acoustic and they are pretty good. I'd be happy to share them if you're interested. PM me.
A caveat...I have found that there are almost NO trax out there that don't need some kind of tweaking or massaging to make them work. Even just muting the vocal/guitar tracks means having some knowledge of midi software. Cakewalk works fine.
It's so worth it though, when you get the trax right and then have all the control over your sound right there at the T1. Very powerful. And it makes for an impressive performance both sonically and visually when all that beautiful noise starts to fill the room. Where is it all coming from??
I love it!
