Because we can't all have personal engineers standing by to provide the best possible acoustic guitar tone, LR Baggs offers you the next best thing: the Session Acoustic DI. Thanks to its series of simple, one-knob controls that cover complex processes including saturation, multiband compression, and selective resonance filtering, the Session Acoustic DI lets you dial in a professionally smooth and vitally warm sound in seconds. Other great benefits include a variable highpass filter, onboard VU meter, and a mute switch that's really handy when you're swapping out guitars. And with both 1/4" and balanced XLR outputs, the LR Baggs Session Acoustic DI is an ideal addition to both your live and studio recording rigs.
Ease your guitar tone into the mix with analog saturation Multiband compression adds essential polish to your dynamics Must-have tools help fight feedback and clean up your sound Ease your guitar tone into the mix with analog saturation Acoustic guitar may be about the last instrument on Earth you'd consider saturating, but many seasoned professional engineers swear by saturation as a way to make many acoustic instruments sit perfectly in the mix. Lucky for you, the LR Baggs Session Acoustic DI makes this process incredibly easy - just roll on the saturation dial and enjoy the natural, analog warmth. Multiband compression adds essential polish to your dynamics As a concept, multiband compression is pretty simple: you divid your signal into separate frequency bands, compress them individually, and sum them back together. The results are impressive, allowing you to seriously rein in your dynamics, without squashing the life out of your tone. In practice, multiband compression is one of processes that normally requires both software and a fair bit of understanding how to use it. The LR Baggs Session Acoustic DI's Comp/EQ knob takes all the headache and guesswork out of multiband compression. As you increase the dial, a pre-programmed 3-band compressor goes to work, smoothing out your guitar, without tarnishing your tone, allowing you to dig in with all the intensity you want, without overloading your gear. Must-have tools help fight feedback and clean up your sound While most of the Session Acoustic DI is devoted to making good sound better, the guitarists at Sweetwater couldn't help but take note of the handy tools onboard that let you fix less-than-ideal tone and put the kibosh on feedback. For starters, there's a variable highpass filter that lets you cut out boom and rumble that can easily build into thunderous feedback. Speaking of feedback, there's also a Garret Null notch filter onboard the Session Acoustic DI, which carves out the specific resonant frequencies that most often cause trouble, and if that's not enough, there's a phase flip switch you can kick in too. Finally, because sometimes, ground loops just happen, LR Baggs put a simple ground-lift switch on the other side from the highpass filter, letting you cut out hum and buzz.
