    In audio there are inputs and outputs, sometimes called sources and destinations. Audio input sources break down into two basic types: microphones and direct inputs (DI), which also stands for “direct injection.” We commonly refer to the devices that perform this function as a direct box, a DI box, or a DI for short.

    Somebody has been feeding misinformation to our pal Roy here. He wrote in twice and I have taken the liberty of mixing and matching excerpts from both his missives. Good Sir - Yes, Roy! I was hoping you would grace us with your suggestions on miking guitar amps, placement and such. When you go to concerts, do you ever see the taped “X” on some poser’s 4 x 12 cabinet? Either he or his guitar tech has painstakingly determined that… View this story

You know, the green one with a genuine Jensen transformer inside. Now there’s another classic passive direct box, the Switchcraft SC800. Over the years, Jensen transformers have established themselves as a reference benchmark. Other manufactured Jensen DIs include… View this story
