        Comments about SM Pro Audio Q-DI - 4-Channel Direct Box and Line Mixer:

        I purchased this 4-channel DI box for use with our Bluegrass band. We have a small PA with a small rack. Our four instruments (Guitar, Fiddle, Banjo, Bass) all plug into this DI box. From there, the four signals go to our Mackie Onyx 1220i mixer. I also have the rackmount kit for this DI Box. It uses 1RU of rack space. This DI box is very straitforward and easy to use and has good clean sound. The signal is not all that "hot" (volume level). It works great with instruments that put out a strong signal. Our guitarist has a Martin guitar with a fairly hot signal. It works perfect with the Martin. But my acoustic bass does not have a very hot signal. The DI box works OK, but it would be nice if the signal was just a bit hotter for my bass. I can compensate by pushing the gain on the mixer for the bass channel. We used to use a separate ART Tube-MP DI box for each instrument. Our four separate ART DI boxes were very inconvenient to setup with cords everywhere (AC power cord "wall warts", and not rackmountable). I did like the ability to "dial in" a certain "warmth" and higher output level with the ART DIs. However, this 4-channel DI box is much better for our overall situation. I recommend this product.
