The ToneMatch audio engine puts our largest library of customized
presets at your command. These ToneMatch presets instantly optimize
instruments and microphones for any L1 system, all at the touch
of a button.
Different presets can be independently assigned to the engine's
four channels. For example, select Audix® OM5 mic presets
for channels 1 and 2, Taylor® guitar for channel 3 and Lakland®
bass for channel 4—all at the same time.
Our engineers often work with manufacturers directly to expand
the ToneMatch preset library. Updates are available to you free,
with easy downloading via the engine's USB port.
Intelligent equalization: zEQ
Fine-tune your sound system with greater accuracy.
Bose intelligent zEQ redefines low, mid and high ranges for
each ToneMatch preset. When you need to cut or boost specific
frequency ranges for different instruments and mics, zEQ gives
you the power.

Globally assign one of five different reverbs to each
mic/line channel. You can also choose from three delay types,
ten additional effects, and seven dynamics processors—and
assign them independently to each channel.
Store your customized settings for specific gigs with
the Scenes feature. The engine comes with five predefined Bose
scenes and ten you can define. Fast, one-touch scene recall
helps you make quick work of repeat setups.
