An Essential Live-sound Tool!

If you run live sound, then here's a handy tool you'll want to keep in your bag of tricks. The Whirlwind podDI is a passive direct box that's purpose built for patching iPods, CD players, Laptops, and any other consumer music device into your mixing console. Like all of Whirlwind's direct boxes, the podDI is built tough enough to take the rigors of the stage and has handy controls that are easy to use. A stereo 1/8" jack serves as the podDI's main input, though it has a stereo pair of RCA input jacks as well. What's even better is that the podDI's two sets of inputs run in parallel, so you can use one as an input and the other as a loop-though output to a personal monitor on stage - a real life saver! Also, there's a pair of attenuators for the left and right input channels, so you can adjust the mix right on the podDI. A single summed XLR output with a switchable ground lift gives you the clear, noise-free sound you need.

Whirlwind podDI Direct Box Features at a Glance:
  • 1/8" stereo TRS input
  • Color-coded stereo RCA inputs
  • Parallel inputs can act as loop-though outputs
  • Separate attenuators for left and right inputs
  • Balanced XLR mono-summed output
  • Switchable ground lift on output
The Whirlwind podDI direct box is a must-have tool for any live sound engineer!

Whirlwind DI

Excellent di box! Does exactly as advertised. Stereo input to single xlr out. Great with stereo digital piano to mixer.

Great product and advice

Needed to combine a stereo signal for mono use. Worked totally well. Great Sweetwater advice as usual.

Affordable life saver

We use these for our church in several A/V situations where channels are limited, and all we need is to get sound from a laptop, or iPod, etc, to a PA. These are also helpful when using split tracks in rehearsals. This does what it says faithfully and even gives a little control to mix your stereo signal before summing with the Left and Right gain knobs. Another cool little perk is the option to input via L/R RCA jacks or 1/8' mini pin. Very versatile little tool that saves channels and money.

It does the trick

Well, it does exactly what it says. Audio quality seemed excellent. There are cheaper solutions out there, but why mess around when you have the solution and you know it works? When was the last time you bought something that did exactly what you wanted it to do? It's been awhile for me...
