    In its most basic form, a DI – also known as a direct box and short for “direct injection” and/or “direct insert” – takes an unbalanced high-impedance signal (i.e., from an electric guitar or keyboard) and converts it to a balanced low-impedance signal. This process is needed when running high-impedance signal at long distances, such as down a snake to a front of house console. Unconverted, the unbalanced signal can pick up noise; also, sending high-impedance signal at longer distances… View this story

    Editor’s Note: Here’s an interesting thread from the PSW Live Audio Board (LAB) forums. It’s lightly edited for grammar and formatting. Enjoy. Posted by John I’ll be working with some bands where the rider notes a mic and DI for bass. Maybe I’ve worked with quiet bass players, if there is such an animal. But the few times I’ve tried it, I’ve soloed the mic in my cans and found that the drum bleed was as loud or louder than… View this story

    Radial Engineering announces the new LX3 passive line splitter. The Radial LX3 is designed to send one audio signal to as many as three destinations at once. Completely passive with no need for power, you simply plug in and the LX3 goes to work delivering your audio wherever it needs to go.   The heart of the LX3 is a Jensen transformer, which provides two isolated outputs to eliminate hum and buzz from ground loops, along with a third direct… View this story

    TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing four new direct boxes at AES, including mono and dual models of both active FET and passive designs. The TELEFUNKEN TDA-1 (mono) and TDA-2 (dual) are newly designed active FET direct boxes that employ discrete Class-A FET circuitry coupled with transformer that provides balance between high headroom performance and saturated tone. The TD-1 (mono) and TD-2 (dual) are new passive transformer direct box designs that combine quality components with a rugged construction to create a reliable… View this story

    di boxes
    Peter Janis 08/30/16 06:36 AM,
    What type of direct (DI) box works best for bass guitar? The answer is easy: it depends. In fact, more than anything else, it depends on the type of bass that the DI is going to be used with. When it comes to signal flow, there are two types of bass guitars: passive and active. The first electric basses, i.e., the original Fender Precision, were passive, and in fact still are today. They employed magnetic pickups to generate the signal… View this story

    recording
    Bruce A. Miller 07/19/16 05:53 AM,
    This article is provided by BAMaudioschool.com.   My first day as a real engineer rather than an assistant was all about bass. The engineer (who was the studio manager as well) took a break after we recorded basic tracks on a Salsa song. Before leaving the room he told me to punch where the bassist wanted. I started, and was easily able to hear and punch individual notes rather than whole phrases. A few times I disagreed about which note… View this story

    Provided by Live Sound Advice.   DI boxes (“Direct Instrument” or “Direct Inject” boxes) are very helpful tools in a live sound system. The most common type is called a passive DI, which includes an isolation transformer and ground lift switch.  The primary function of a DI box is to convert the unbalanced (1/4-inch 2-conductor) phone plug output on your keyboard or guitar into a low-impedance (low-z), balanced (3-conductor) XLR jack, which can be plugged directly into your signal snake… View this story

    Australia-based ARX Systems announces the release of their new SuperSplitter transformer isolated one input to three outputs passive splitter. ARX’s managing director Colin Park says; “Here at ARX we’re excited about adding the new SuperSplitter to our popular AudiBox range.” “Our new SuperSplitter is a transformer isolated one input to three outputs passive splitter. It is ideal for splitting one audio signal three ways in applications where complete Galvanic isolation is required. Galvanic isolation using transformers is the classic method… View this story

    Radial Engineering announces the JDX Direct-Drive is now shipping. The JDX Direct-Drive simulates the sound of a guitar amplifier while doubling up as a direct box. In other words, with the JDX Direct-Drive on a pedalboard, you can do a gig without carrying an amp to the club. Radial’s Central Territory manager, David ‘Shuu’ Guidish, spent almost two decades on stage as a guitar tech with various bands including a ten year stint with Nickelback.  According to Shuu: “On the… View this story
