Take your guitar tracks to the next level

A whole new take on the DI box

Want to track guitars the way the pros do, with a new level of sound quality and powerful workflow? Look no further than the groundbreaking Z-TONE® DI.

It takes any audio interface (or live mixer) to the next level using the same techniques in the studio as pros like Joe Satriani.

Powerful tone shaping options

Z-TONE DI offers a high-quality instrument preamp with exceptionally low noise and wide frequency response, and multiple circuit topologies to adapt to any type of guitar, pick-up and style.

Passive

Pick your pickup:

PASSIVE: designed to accommodate everything from low-output vintage pickups to hotter modern humbuckers with ultra-low noise and extended frequency response.

ACTIVE: bypasses unnecessary gain stages when using active pick-ups, to keep your signal path as direct, transparent and clean as possible.

Pure

Choose your channel:

PURE: a completely transparent and ultra-accurate preamp circuit that won’t colour  your sound in any way.

JFET: a Class A JFET input buffer for subtle harmonic
enhancement, midrange focus and warmth.

Z-TONE DI lets you record two tracks simultaneously: the processed track coming from your amp and effects rig, and a direct track for post-processing using amp sims like the included AmpliTube 5 SE.

This way you can record with your real gear, and at the same time have maximum tone flexibility with a second track that you can process and fine-tune at will, without having to record countless takes.
