The PDIS is a passive direct injection stereo box, based upon the earlier single-channel PDI
The PDIS features sturdy Neutrik connectors, including quarter-inch inputs and low-impedance XLR outputs for each channel on one side, with a pair of through outputs for each channel on the reverse side. This allows unique routing configurations, like sending a keyboard signal both via the Lo-Z outputs to your console as well as via the quad Hi-Z through outputs to two separate amplifiers or effects chains. Dual ground lift switches help navigate any noise issues caused by grounding.
The main key to the musicality of the PDIS is its OEP/Carnhill transformers. Known for their warmth and clarity in the high end and natural-sounding harmonics in the low end, OEP/Carnhill transformers are one of the premium components that give many of BAE Audio's hardwire devices their signature sound. The analog character of the PDIS separates it from many other direct injection boxes on the market, which often have a sterile, lifeless character.
The PDIS is an ideal DI solution for keyboards, stereo guitar rigs, drum machines, and more. It can also function as two independent separate instrument DI channels and handle two mono instruments, such as a guitar and a bass, simultaneously. Tracks recorded with the PDIS easily integrate with miked sound sources in the mix as is, or are well suited for reamping if desired.
Hand-wired in California like all BAE Audio products, the PDIS features100% through-hole components for maximum signal integrity. Recessed switches and connectors combine with a rugged steel chassis to help it stand up to the beating of daily studio or stage use.
