The JDI-01 from JOYO is a very useful DI with in built guitar amp emulation technology. Perfect for performing guitarists that want a consistent sound out front and in their monitor mix, no matter the venue or sound technician. The DI can be used with or without a guitar cabinet or amplifier to provide a clean and consistent amplified guitar sound.
When microphones are used to capture the sound from a guitar amplifier, it often takes time to position it in the optimal position, and a shift in position can drastically alter the sound. In the live setting and recording sessions, until recently, this was the most effective technique of obtaining a quality sound. However, with the JDI-01, the hard work is done for you with the inclusion of amp simulation. Take an XLR output from the pedal and you have clean, ready made sound without room spill and bleed from other instruments entering the mic, therefore making mixing much easier.
The JDI-01 has a unique feature that presents the option of using an amp or not whilst producing the same sound. Using the line input, and XLR output, the pedal acts as a standard DI Box, except it will use the in built amp simulation to provide a sound that is equal to playing through an amp. Even better that you can select between a 2 x 12 combo or a 4 x 12 cabinet as the sound of your choice. Perfect for recording of for those not wishing to carry big amps to their shows.
It is very important to note that when using the pedal with an amp, you must connect the load output of the amp head to the "From Amp" input on the pedal and the speaker cabinet must be connected from the "to speaker" output on the pedal. Failure to do this may damage your amplifier.
