    Is the 1/4 inch output supposed to be affected by the Cab Simulator? Seems like a design flaw - I want my 1/4 inch output to be NON AFFECTED so my guitar amp does what it's supposed to , and send the XLR output to a board with a cab simulation... now my guitar amp sounds "muddy" because the cab-simulator is affecting the tone to the amp as well as the mixing board....
    Chris O on Sep 28, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in this DI Box. Yes, the 1/4" output is affected by the Cab Simulator.
    which cable should you use for the balanced output? XLR to 1/4' for the front of an interface or XLR to XLR for the midi input in the back of an interface?
    New User U on Feb 20, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Well, if your interface has an XLR jack, an xlr cable would work just fine. A MIDI connector and XLR does not work together. MIDI is a data connection. not an audio connection.

    If your interface is close (under 20ft) then you can just a standard guitar cable into the 1/4” input of your interface. Not knowing your interface limits my response, but I would bet that it has an XLR/instrument combo jack. If that’s the case, you can do xlr or guitar cable.
    Can I use this unit as an ACTIVE direct box (with simulator turned off)? Thanks.
    Apache C on Nov 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It is an active direct box. there is a switch for cab sim, so you can turn it off, but it could be helpsul in a pich if you have to go directly to a mixing board. The boost and cut are nice features.
    1. Is the 9V power adapter included? 2. Is 9V power required or will it work passively or via phantom? 3. If power adapter required can a 9V battery be adapted?
    Barrett M on Mar 9, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: With a couple components and a little knowledge/solder skills, you could easily make a 9V battery harness. The pedal is simply too small to have space for an internal 9V battery, which is why they opted for the 9V plug as the only power option. It would probably be a lot more convenient just to buy the adapter, unless you really need battery operability.

    Useful little DI box for recording
    This is a great little DI box for audio interfaces that don't have a pad option. Some units (e.g., Scarlett 2i2) can't adequately record guitars direct-in with hot pickups. This solves that problem with a 20dB reduction switch. Also has 20dB gain (which I don't need), and a cab simulator (which I don't use.) Would have been nice to have the balanced output supply phantom power, thus bypassing need for separate 9v power, but that's not a complaint at this price point. A very useful tool!

    PROS: Small footprint with both balanced and unbalanced outputs, cab simulator.

    Great idea
    Get a great active box with simulator for the same price as a passive at Guitar Center.

    Added benefit......I was able to run my pedal board direct to the PA on the XLR out AND run the 1/4" directly back to my 5 watt monoprice tube amp as a monitor!!! Perfect!

    The 4x12 stack simulation is really freakin loud. Not using it at Church, but fun to play around with.

    Signal gain being ran at -20 works great with 2 over drives stacked. Put it to 0 and things get nuts. Absolutely no need for the +20 with single coil Strat. But works great with a bass guitar, with out pedals.

    PROS: Great product, got added advantages I was not expecting

    CONS: None

    Better than expected...
    I bought this DI to solve a connection issue. I hooked it up to my pedal board (in the last position) and it solved the issue. When I turned on the cabinet simulator (it simulates 4 x 12" speakers) I got a little volume boost and a lot of warmth without added bass. My rig is now complete and my guitar sounds awesome. Thanks Monoprice!

    PROS: Great DI box especially for the price.

    CONS: none

    Guitar Direct to PA with Cab Simulator...
    I bought this for flexibility and now use it as part of my rig.

    The cab-simulator is decent. I'm actually using this in a hybrid setup:

    Monoprice Route 66 Guitar > Wah (vintage Boomerang 2) > TUNER PEDAL WITH A SPLITTER - OUTPUT 1 out to a Zoom R24 input channel with efx turned on for a '59 Marshall simulation, 1 out to rest of analog chain = Distortion (Red Army Overdrive) > Monoprice Delay pedal > Monoprice DI (The one writing review on) - OUTPUT OF DI = HighZ out to my guitar amp, LowZ out to ZOOM R24 input channel 2

    ZOOM R24 channel 1 with Wah and clean guitar tone through '59 Marshall stack simulation, Channel 2 is my output from the Monoprice DI with cab simulator ON - I pan both channels about half way L/R respectively - getting killer tone without even needing my AMP .....

    HOWEVER, here is my only complaint about the Monoprice DI -- CAB SIMULATOR affects BOTH HighZ (1/4") out & LowZ (XLR) - I'd prefer that the HighZ (1/4") output was NOT affected by the cab simulator, so my guitar amp will be what's intended....

    Works great for sending analog effects straight in to the sound system
    I have a couple of gigs a year where we need totally quiet stage. Drummer uses electronic drums and all guitars and keys go direct. I much prefer my analog pedal board over my digital multieffects. Bought this to go direct and it works great. The problem with a typical passive DI is the overall gain to the board tends to be very weak. This thing sends PLENTY of signal back to the sound board.
    The cabinet simulator works. I won't say if you'll like it or not as that's a taste thing each player will have to decide.

    Pros - Super quiet, plenty of output gain, two different output tones (cab simulator on or off) - great price!

    Cons - power supply only (if you're a clean power junky its a problem), issues trying to run both outputs (read other reviews on that), the color is a pleasant lavender, not the blue you see in the pics (I guess it's a little to pretty :-)

    Awesome Little DI
    I use this DI to send from my Takamine acoustic/electric guitar to the mixer in a live performance setting. I also have one on my effects rig between my Carvin electric and the same mixing board. I use the cabinet simulator on the Carvin and have it turned off for the Takamine. This DI works better than any other DI have used in the past for half the price. I love it
