  • I already know this will be a stupid question. But I see the LE has an optical SPDIF out. My mixer has an RCA SPDIF input. Uhh what kind of cable would be used in this set up? Every one I see is RCA on both ends.

    Thanks

    • You'll need a separate hardware converter like the M-Audio CO2.

        I think it's a good question. There are two kinds of cables for S/DIF digital signals: coax (the kind you're used to seeing, with the RCA plugs) and the fiber-optic, or TOSLINK, kind. In both cases the protocol (information) traveling on them is the same, just the wires are different (optical being superior for signal integrity over longer distances, etc.). Here's what the optical cable and plug look like:

        • You can buy a converter (like the one pictured below) for about $30.

          The M-Audio C02 is a good unit, but it's more expensive ($60) and more than you need (it's bi-directional); you're only going one way -- from the ToneLab into the mixer.

          • Good thing you're on top of that, sir! I didn't even know that particular unit existed.

            • I played the TLLE yesterday at my local shop. As I've said I'm not a power user or even reviewer, just a hobbyist guitar player. But this unit blew me away at how great it sounds. it blew away the sales guy in the store too. i've heard the other ME units in this price range and specifications (although that's a little apple and orange comaprison) and hands down this is going to be the unit I purchase becuase it sounds so well, the physical design is sexy and I like the logic behind the interface and tone design process. In fact if I hadn't lost my job on Tuesday I would have bought the TLLE yesterday.



              Rock on!

                  • Hello Folks -



                    I would like to use my LE in Stomp Box Mode. However, If I enable the "pedal" selector switch and choose, let's say, "Fuzz", then edit this sound with the editing knobs, how can I save the new combination as defaults.



                    The problem I'm having is that when I switch from "fuzz" to "u-vibe", then back to fuzz, my edits are gone.



                    Sure, I can save my edits to a program bank, but this is disturbing for stomp box users.



                    Am I missing something?

                      When you have the settings where you want them, just hit the "write" button twice. You can make more changes, but the original settings won't change unless you overwrite them by hitting the "write" button twice.



                      If you're trying to save settings for two different pedal effects, you'll need to save them in two separate banks (ie: 1-1 for fuzz, 1-2 for u-vibe, etc.).

                        This discussion was touched on in page 4 (http://acapella.harmony-central.com/...&postcount=75).



                        AndersonTech's workaround is correct, and it's not that hard of a routine to adopt. Think of it this way: you have four locations in any bank (e.g., 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4). Keep 1-1 as the master stompbox setting and simply save your settings along the way to the other three banks -- bank 2 for pedals, bank 3 for modulation, and bank 4 for delay/reverb. Vox pre-programs only banks 1-10 (40 presets total); banks 11-30 are repeats. So use these additional banks, too. If you get really lost, invoke the "restore factory settings" option. Or better yet, use the ToneLab LE's editor/librarian program (screen shot below).



                        But mostly you'll make adjustments in order, tapping the Write button twice as you go, and building your sound that way. You might create two settings with different distortion levels, but that's about it. You can easily save to alternate programs (e.g., 1-2, 1-3) for that. Really, this is not a hassle, it's like having two sets of the same stombox collection with different settings.

                          i still wanna know if the LE sounds better than a zoom G9 through a tech 21 power engine or some such rig with no preamp coloring.






                          yes it does...the zoom is garbage..plain and simple..its about as warm as a swarm of bees.. sorry but its the truth..the stupid implimention of the 2 tubes is silly and poor...I mean the tube settings must be changed for each patch you use if you want any versatility ..so picture yourself at a gig changing a patch from a fender to a marshal and then messing with both tube settings...forget it!

                          • What were the settings you used for the acoustic clip you posted? Also, would you run and acoustic guitar through the LE and if so, at what settings?

                              I just took the first preset #1-1, and changed the compressor to acoustic simulator, then used Type 1 (M-Small) for the acoustic type.



                              Here's a soundclip of me passing my acoustic guitar through the ToneLab LE. The lead guitar is a slide set on the resonator setting (#4), and the rhythm guitar is on acoustic sim #2 (G-Small). This is an Ibanez Artwood model with a saddle transducer.

                              I like the funky, mettallic sound of the resonator setting, especially for lead slide work.

                              • Hello everyone,



                                I am also new to the TLLE -- is there an easy switch on this piece of equipment to bypass it completely? Like the previous jazzer poster, sometimes I just like to go clean through my amp without any colouring from any unit and then step on a button to turn on all the effects again, simoultaneously. Most of the time that I would be playing I would be using the unit so I realise that this isn't that big of a thing if it's not possible. Also, this may have been covered already but I'm not completely sure -- it seems to me that this unit is quite digital in its electronics. If this is true, will it change the nature of the sound that one would get from a valve amplifier. I would be very disappointed if this unit made a nice (and also expensive!) valve amplifier sound solid state.



                                Thanks!
