Miktek DI-1 - Active Direct Box
The Miktek DI-1 lets you send a Hi-Z signal (e.g. guitars, bass guitars, drum machines, keyboards, outboard signal processors, powered speaker output from an amp, etc.) directly to a mixer or recorder.
The DI-1 enables you to tap off the signal from a guitar or bass and pass the signal from the THRU output to the amp without affecting the original sound—eliminating the need to mic the amplifier.
With the DI-1’s active power supply, you can rely on an even frequency response. The OUTPUT connection cancels hums/buzzes, while leaving the original signal clean and pure. The DI-1 is also useful for connecting imbalanced signals such as DJ mixers, effects processors and keyboards to a main PA or recording mixer.
Power with either a single 9-volt battery or standard 48 volt phantom power. Whenever phantom power is present on the XLR cable (connected to the OUTPUT), the DI-1 will automatically disconnect the 9 volt battery and switch to phantom power.
