Galvanic-Organic DI Direct Box is a passive direct box designed to handle instrumental signal without any distortion. Unlike an active DI that is limited by the buffering amplifier’s rail voltage, the G-O employs a audio transformer as the engine. Transformers are legendary in their ability to gracefully handle transients while delivering a smooth, warm sounding curve, reminiscent of the finest vintage gear.
The transformer performs both high-to-low impedance conversion and signal balancing at the same time with minimal loading.
The transformer also introduces a magnetic bridge that passes signal while rejecting stray DC voltage (galvanic isolation). This makes the Galvanic-Organic particularly adept at eliminating hum and buzz caused by ground loops.
