Audio Samples

Here are some samples of various instruments recorded using the MIGHTY G d.i. All samples were recorded direct to digital through SEPre1™ mic preamps, completely flat and dry with absolutely no eq, compression, or effects processors of any kind unless noted otherwise.
You can download these samples and import them into your digital workstation. This will allow you to hear them as we intended. Listen, and enjoy!

What's in the Box

Description

A robust active direct insertion box [DI] designed to be plugged directly into all electric and acoustic instruments with electromagnetic and piezo-type pickups as well as keyboards, stompboxes and vintage effects such as tape echoes.

The MIGHTY G converts high impedance signals to a robust low impedance balanced output capable of driving signals over long cables (to mic preamps and recording or live mixing consoles) without loss of signal quality.

The MIGHTY G is powered by NOS germanium transistors.

The MIGHTY G’s direct insertion design minimizes or eliminates radio frequency interference {RFI] and electromagnetic interference [EMF] commonly suffered by musicians, studio engineers and live sound mixers. This design also eliminates the tone robbing effects of guitar cables by … eliminating the need for them !!!

The MIGHTY G™ produces a flattering sound quality due to the total absence of loading of the signal source. Additionally, its germanium transistors contribute a magical sonic presence not heard in passive transformer and IC [integrated circuit] direct box designs. Users remark that their instruments produced both deeper and brighter tone than they had previously experienced. In fact these qualities of their instrument had always been there … they had just never been heard before !

The MIGHTY G is 3.5 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. It is housed in a sophisticated yet tough showroom-finish die-cast enclosure. It fits in your pocket and plugs directly into most acoustic and electric guitars, basses and keyboards. It has been designed to sound great, look important and perform flawlessly on live and in studio settings for many years to come.

The unit is phantom powered. The input connector is a Switchcraft® 1/4” male switching jack. There is also a female input model (the SE-DI3 F MIGHTY G) for use with instruments with hard-to-get-to output connectors. The truly (not quasi) balanced output jack is an all-metal Switchcraft gold plated 3 pin XLR connector.

Specifications

  • all discrete class A active electronics … no ICs
  • transformer-less design with vintage low noise (N.O.S.) germanium transistors
