Description

The IK Multimedia Z-TONE DI is a premium active direct box packed with unique tone-shaping features. Whether you want more flexible routing onstage or superior tone shaping in the studio, Z-Tone DI borrows the input circuits from the award-winning AXE I/O interface to let you do a whole lot more, and sound better doing it.

Z-TONE DI preserves the natural tone of your instrument with exceptional headroom and transient response, and gives you powerful sound-shaping options:

First, an active/passive pickup switch with adjustable input gain lets you easily dial in exactly the right input level for your axe. Next, choose from PURE and JFET input channels to give you more tonal options. PURE is a completely transparent and colorless preamp that won’t color your sound, while JFET offers a Class A JFET to add subtle midrange focus and warmth.

Z-TONE DI also offers IK's patent-pending variable impedance control, letting you dial in impedance from 1 MOhm to 2.2 kOhms to shape your sound In unique ways. At the maximum impedance, you’ll find your sound tighter, sharper and more precise. Increase the load and the sound becomes thicker and more bold.

Z-TONE DI offers a range of useful output options. First, the balanced XLR output offers a switchable ground lift, to eliminate noise and hum caused by ground loops. An unbalanced 1/4” output offers additional flexibility. A Link out mirrors the input signal to connect to pedals and amps to easily record DI tracks alongside your real amp’s tone in the studio, or blend direct and amp sounds live on stage for even more sonic flexibility.

And an optional 20dB pad extends the useful range of the unit, letting you use instruments and sources aside from guitar and bass. Many keyboards, synths and more still benefit from Z-TONE’s unique PURE / JFET circuits and ground lift feature, for flexible routing and tone shaping.

Z-TONE DI runs off a 9V battery for easy portability, but can also be powered by +48v phantom power from your mixer or interface to run longer sessions without worries! And Z-TONE DI is made in IK’s Modena factory and packed in a rugged metal housing for years of reliable performance.
