      It’s all about inputs and outputs (I/O). How do I get an audio signal from one to the other? The ongoing evolution of professional audio has produced a number of viable digital interfaces to complement legacy analog I/O practices.

In this overview, I will start with analog since it is familiar to most readers and serves as a… View this post

    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 post
