Tech Corner is the livestream where our Radial tech gurus help demystify the world of music technology. For the first stream of 2022, the team discussed Radial’s bread and butter – those mysterious boxes known as D.I.s.
Whether you use them all the time, or this is the first time you’ve heard the term, the world of D.I.s can be confusing. There are a huge amount of different types out there (Radial sell over 40 ourselves). Active or Passive? Mono or Stereo? What kind of inputs/outputs? How will they affect my tone? Never fear, the Tech team have got you covered. After watching the video, we want you to be able to walk away with a better idea of how to make D.Is work for you, and help you to pick the right D.I. for any situation.
