Whirlwind DIR overview

  • 1Description

The Director direct box from Whirlwind converts an unbalanced line, instrument or speaker level signal to low impedance balanced microphone level, which is then suitable for imputing to a console or microphone preamp.

The unit is a passive device and therefore requires no external power supply. The unit features a ground lift switch and a 30 dB pad for selecting between line/instrument or speaker level signals.

1/4" parallel wired in/out jacks
30 dB pad switch for selecting between line/instrument or speaker level input signals
Ground Lift switch to help eliminate hum and buzz
Switchable high cut filter to eliminate amplifier noise

    Whirlwind DIR reviews

    DIRECTOR - Studio or PA Direct Box is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid construction, great features I've used this on pickups from a number of acoustic instruments: violins, mandolins, guitars, etc. It always has a clean sound and the features I need to enhance the quality (if necessary) like a ground/lift switch, impedance switch for the input (instrument/amp) and a filter switch. Plus it's passive so I don't have to worry about phantom power. I love it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works As Advertised I'm using this to plug my electric guitar into my Mackie mixer. Picture doesn't show it but it does have an XLR balanced connector.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Quality When you need to run instruments through your sound system, you have to have at least one and in our case six.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word...Reliable The Director is a very reliable DI box and I have used them for over 20 years in the pro market. Also very affordable. I own many of them including the stereo Direct2 DI box. Good choice when you need to purchase a dozen of so.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, yet very effective solution I use it to take the speaker level from my 5 watt Victoria 518 and input it to solid state amps and PA.
