Classic Guitar Amp Sound - From a DI
Wouldn't it be cool to plug into a direct box that gives you the sound of a guitar amp? Unlike common DIs that simply pass signal to the console, the Radial JDX Direct-Drive delivers the tone and feel of a real guitar amplifier. Think about how freeing that would be, not having to lug an amp to the gig! Here's where the amp simulation magic happens: a series of filters meticulously modeled on a Shure SM57 in front of a Marshall 4 x 12" cab. From there, you have two additional voicing options: a vintage Marshall tube head, and an early Fender Twin. Sweetwater guitarists are amazed and delighted by the Radial JDX Direct-Drive. You will be, too.
You need this amazingly clever device
The Radial JDX Direct-Drive delivers classic 4 x 12, half-stack, and open-back combo tones. On top of that, it gives you a presence switch for added sparkle. Operation is simple. The signal path starts with the 1/4" input jack, with a throughput (in case you'd want to feed an amp). That's followed by a dedicated tuner out, buffered to eliminate pickup loading and noise. Then comes the amp-simulating filters we mentioned. For output, you've got a 1/4" guitar-level out, and a balanced XLR to feed the board. The Direct-Drive is also fitted with polarity-reverse and ground-lift switches. So, there you have it: a DI that outputs definitive guitar amp tone. Quite remarkable. The Radial JDX Direct-Drive - every electric guitarist needs one.Radial JDX Direct-Drive Amp Simulator and DI Features:
