direct box

Direct box the Reddi by A-Designs

I just got the chance to use this live . I can say that it really helps rounding out the sound for the bass . My bassist loved the tone . I have other pieces of their gear and I'm very satisfied with all of it .

Any other people had any experience with this DI or any others . Would love to know what and how other people are using them .

Next,I'm going to try my guitar through it . Can't wait

Guitar and bass > Pedal Board > DI box > Recording Interface

Hi guys, I have questions those are making me crazy.

-I have to record an electric guitar (passive pups) and a bass with passive pups too, they are gonna use pedalboard effects.
-I don't want to use Amps and Mic Techniques, and I would like to experiment a little with these Direct Boxes.(learn something new)

Good DI boxes?

Hey all,

I was looking around and couldn't find a thread on this(maybe I missed it). I was looking for a really good phantom powered, reamping DI box. What are some really good ones that are reliable. I would be interested in buying a tube DI as well. What are your thoughts?

I found some countryman type 85 on craigslist for cheap. Any feedback on this DI box?



Connecting E.Gtr via DI box into mixer: Mic vs. Line input?


Greetings all,

If I have to plug my guitar direct into a mixer during a live gig through a direct box, what is the difference when connecting the other end into the mic input vs. the line input of the mixer? Is it better going into the mic input, if so, why?

Thanks for any advice!

How do you record bass using a passive DI box + a mic?


Hey guys I'm wondering how to record bass using a passive DI box and a mic so that I can have 2 signals going into Pro Tools. I've never recorded with two signals before so I'm not real clear on how to hook everything up.

I'm using an Mbox with two inputs. So for one signal I go from the mic to the Mbox right?

And for the other signal I go from the bass guitar to the amp, out of the amp and into the DI box, and then from the DI box to the Mbox right?

And do you guys have any recommendations for a good passive DI box?

New problem with me little labs red eye and other Di boxes!

I have had a new problem develop today in the studio with my Di boxes and my AWESOME Little Labs Di/Re-amper boxes. Everything sounds fine UNTIL I plug the XLR cable into them. the guitar tone goes from ROARING death metal bliss with tons of gain to sad thin unhappy blues tone(no beef with the blues but I am tracking the sound track for hell here!) IF I un-plug my TT patchbayOR the XLR from the patchbayOR the XLR from any of the boxes the tone comes SCREAMING back at me BUT no Di for the super important re-amping I must do. IF anyone knows what might be going on please help me.
