Direct Inject (DI) Boxes

Often ignored or thought very highly of, the humble DI box is a very important piece of audio equipment and should not be compromised. In essence, a Direct Injection (DI) box adapts audio signals from non-microphone sources and creates a balanced output signal with the same impedance and level as microphones, making these inputs ideally suited for mixing desk inputs. They can also provide some other useful functions such as ground lift and PAD’s. DI boxes are commonly used with keyboards, bass guitars, DJ equipment and laptops.

We stock a range of different DI boxes including mono and stereo channel in both passive and active variants. We also have specialist DI’s such as the Radial JPC and the radial USB Pro for use with laptops/macbooks which can overcome some of the audio output noise that can affect these. As always, please speak to one of our sound technicians if you require advice on this type of equipment.

Audio Interfaces

Audio interfaces are used when you need to get sound into a computer or laptop at a high quality. The microphone inputs on both PC’s and MACs are not designed for professional audio and will generally yield poor results. A dedicated, external interface connects to the computers, usually using a USB connection, and allows you to interface professional microphones as well as line-level signals without loss or excess noise.
