If I change a setting on the system itself, will it affect the app?

Does the L1 Mix app allow me to control individual channels?

How does the L1 Mix app connect to my L1 Pro system?
The L1 Mix app connects to your L1 Pro system via a Bluetooth Low Energy connection.
Can I use the L1 Mix app to stream music?
No. The L1 Mix app is for controlling the channel mixer on your L1 Pro. You can use streaming service apps such as Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, etc., to stream music.
Can I use the Bose Connect app with the L1 Pro?
No. The L1 Pro family of products uses the purpose-built L1 Mix app for mixer control and requires third-party streaming apps for streaming music.
Can I connect more than one L1 Pro system to the L1 Mix app?
Yes. You can connect to multiple L1 Pro systems that are powered on and within range. You will see each available system product “card” in the L1 Mix app before selecting the system you wish to control. However, you can only control one system at a time.
Can I mute the reverb effect on a channel using the L1 Mix app?
Yes, you can mute the reverb by pressing and holding the word “REVERB” on that corresponding channel. When muted, you will see a circle with a dot in the center next to the word to indicate that it is muted. To unmute, press and hold REVERB again, or simply turn the parameter knob.
What are the green lights at the bottom of the control knob on the L1 Mix app?
The short, curved line at the bottom of the control knob is the signal/clip indicator. It is illuminated green when a signal is present, just like on the product, in real time. It is illuminated in red if the signal is too hot and possibly distorted. This indicator will also be red if the system is entering limiting mode.
Can I update my L1 Pro system firmware via the L1 Mix app?
No. The L1 Pro system, as well as Sub1 or Sub2 firmware, must be updated using the USB-C port and a laptop or desktop computer.
What is a “scene,” and why would I want to save one?
A “scene” represents all of the current settings on your L1 Pro system. By saving a scene, you can instantly recall all of those settings again later. This is helpful if you regularly play a certain venue and want to simplify the setup process by not having to adjust volume and EQ settings again every time you play at that venue.
What is Low Power Standby in the L1 Mix app settings?
Low Power Standby is a standard feature on the L1 Pro family of products. If a product is left on with no detectable audio source for four hours, it will enter a low-power “standby” mode. The product is “woken up” by pressing the power button. Using the L1 Mix app, you can disable the Low Power Standby mode so your L1 Pro system will not turn off after four hours with no detectable audio source.
Is there a specific app for each L1 Pro product?
No, the L1 Mix app works to control the L1 Pro8, L1 Pro16, and the L1 Pro32.
Can the L1 Mix app control the Sub1 and Sub2 powered bass modules?
The L1 Mix app can control a Sub1 or Sub2 powered bass module when connected to an L1 Pro32, since they are part of that L1 Pro system. However, Sub1 and Sub2 are not Bluetooth-enabled, so they cannot be controlled by the L1 Mix app when used by themselves or with other systems.
