Input

1/4" hi-Z input used to connect the instrument to the PZ-DI.

1

Thru

1/4" hi-Z throughput used to feed an onstage instrument amplifier.

2

Load

3-position switch lets you adjust the input impedance to optimize the load for the type of pickup being used. Set to: 1 meg-Ohm to replicate traditional DIs, 10 meg-Ohm for piezo transducers, 220 Ohm for magnetic pickups.

3

Pad

Reduce the input sensitivity by 15dB enabling the PZ-DI to be used with high output instruments such as active basses or keyboards.

4

Lo-Cut

Variable high-pass filter is used to remove unwanted resonance and size the instrument to suit. Variable from 5Hz to 500Hz.

5

Hi-Cut

Used to tame the sound to active instruments that often contain excessive high frequencies.

XLR Out

Balanced 600Ω mic level output, use to feed mixer or mic preamp.

1

Phase

180 deg polarity reverse toggles pin-2 and pin-3 at the XLR output. Used to tame acoustic hot spots on stage and help reduce resonant feedback.

2

Lift

Ground lift switch disconnects the ground from the audio signal path and help eliminate hum and buzz cause by ground loops.

3

48V LED

Provides visual status of 48V phantom power. When the LED is on, the PZ-DI is being fed 48 volts from the console.

Thru Buffer On

Buffers the signal before it is sent to thru-put connector for use with piezo transducers or when using longer cable runs.
