I am after the following kind of Active DI for my acoustic:
  • 9V AC (not 48v phantom or battery powered)
  • 2 inputs TS 1/4" (for passive pickups)
  • gain for each channel (or blend)
  • 1 output (1/4" or XLR) with summed inputs
  • No EQ required
Suggestions? (Yes, the PZ Pre can do all that but I'd like something much simpler... if there's such a thing)

I've recently acquired a Zoom A3. Still getting used to it.

Does your A3 send a super hot signal from the XLR out? Other than being kinda finiky to set up i like mine but the XLR out is just about unuseable. one place i played even with that channel down to zero on trim and fader there was still guitar coming through the mains. i end up going 1/4 out to a passive DI to the board instead which is too bad cuz adds an unnecessary step.

I haven't had the opportunity to use it this way yet, so I can't comment on that. Sorry.
