Re: AT pro 35. Need for a DI?
at local shows [a small 'black box' theatre with PA speakers in the overhead]
with stage snakes wired to a remote mixer most if not all inputs are for Microphones .
and low impedance, so when a unbalanced 1/4" high impedance signal
is needing to go Directly into that 'snake', its Insert is impedance matched .
folks like Baggs and Fishman have added a DI output to some of their pre-amps,
so that may confuse the a bit.
haven't any experience taking them apart , Active DI's may have gain,
Passive ones would be a matching high to low transformer ,
similar to the low to high ones to plug a dynamic mic into a Guitar amp.
