The Channel-1 input will accept ¼" mono as well as ¼" stereo (TRS) inputs which allows the DI MAX to process the "tip" signal through the Channel-1 controls and the "ring" signal through the Channel-2 controls giving you an enormous amount of flexibility for creative signal blending from your stereo pickups. Of course you can plug 2 different instruments into the DI MAX and blend the signals. Channel-1 also allows the use of an XLR input so you can use the DI MAX as a personal mic pre-amp.
The DI MAX lets you dial in a clear, natural sound and route it to a stage PA from a balanced XLR output. A ¼" Line out sends the signal to your stage amp. Tone controls include active bass and treble EQ, mid-dip shape control, and phase switch. Operates on 48V phantom power, 9V adapter, or 9V battery.
