    DI Mini Pedal

    Connect your guitar, bass, or keyboard directly to the mixer using this DI Mini Pedal from Monoprice!

    This DI box takes a high-impedance, unbalanced 1/4" signal and converts it into a low-impedance, balanced XLR signal for Direct Input to a mixer. This allows you to send the signal over much longer cable runs with significantly less signal loss than you could otherwise.

    This active DI box a signal gain switch, which allows you to optionally boost or cut the signal by 20dB, so you can compensate for extremely high-level (hot) or low-level signals. Additionally, it includes a cabinet simulator switch, which when activated fattens up the sound to simulate the sound of a large 4x12" speaker cabinet.

    In addition to converting the signal, the pedal includes a true bypass output, so you can continue to connect to your amplifier. A ground lift button breaks the ground connection between the input and output, which can be useful for eliminating hum or ground loops.

    This pedal is powered using a 9V AC power adapter with a negative tip, such our 9V Power Supply for Guitar Pedals (PID 611600).

    Input 1/4" unbalanced mono jack
    Input Impedance 1 megohm
    Bypass Output 1/4" unbalanced mono jack
    Bypass Output Impedance 1 kilohm
    XLR Output 3-pin XLR balanced mono jack
    XLR Output Impedance 1 kilohm
    Power Requirement 9V AC adapter with tip negative
    Current Draw 12mA
    Dimensions 1.8" x 3.7" x 1.9" (46 x 94 x 50 mm)

    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: Yep! And also it has a 20db boost, neutral, or 20db cut to help match your levels. It's really a great unit. Super happy with mine.
    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.

    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....

    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

    I would recommend this product. Does exactly what it is supposed to do with no noise and the cab SIM is pretty good also. I like it's small footprint.
