The Samson S-Direct Direct Box offers a variety of DI solutions for live sound and recording applications. You can connect guitars, keyboards, outboard signal processors and even the high-powered speaker output from an amplifier. The S-Direct enables you to take the signal from a guitar or bass guitar and pass the signal from the Link output to the amplifier without affecting the original sound. This can eliminate the need for miking the amplifier.
The S-Direct is also very useful for connecting unbalanced signals from sources like sub-mixers, effects processors and keyboards to a PA or recording mixer. Unlike passive direct boxes, the S-Direct is active (has a power supply), so you can rely on an even frequency response regardless of its output impedance. The S-Direct's balanced output provides a clean signal so long runs of cable are possible.
