This DI is a game changer. It makes your acoustic instrument sound just like what it should be - an acoustic instrument when plugged in.. only louder. Works with any pickup you have. It is kind of like magic. You simply play your acoustic instrument into your smartphone, and it remembers how it should sound when played acoustically. That preset is then saved and when you plug it in, out comes that same acoustic tone via the DI.
We at Banjo Studio DEFINITELY recommend this DI. If you are searching to keep the same quality tone of your acoustic instrument when plugged in - this is the answer. No more need for a mic/pickup blend. We at Banjo Studio have tried this on banjos and guitars and it works incredibly well.
The product of nearly 3 years of intensive research and collaboration with a team of PhDs, LR Baggs is thrilled to introduce Voiceprint DI, the next breakthrough chapter in acoustic amplification. Voiceprint DI measures the acoustic response of your guitar by leveraging the processing power of your iPhone® to accurately capture your guitar’s one-of-a-kind voice. A Voiceprint is created, transforming your pickup into the most authentic sound we have engineered in our 40+ years.
