Little Labs Red Eye 3D Passive DI Box


SKU: LL/REDEYE-3D Category:
Brands: Little Labs


Listen through your whole recording chain with Little Labs Red Eye 3D Passive DI Box to mic pre, to DAW (or tape machine), to Red Eye 3D Re – amp, to your guitar amp.

In DI (direct box) mode, the instrument / re-amp out on the front of the Red Eye 3D works as a thru signal. This way you can simultaneously feed your guitar amp while supplying a signal from the rear xlr to your mic pre, DAW or tape machine.

In re – amp mode, the instrument / re-amp ‘out’ signal (on the front of the Little Labs Red Eye 3D Passive DI Box),
comes from the line level output of the DAW or tape machine. This is converted to HI z guitar level signal, to feed your guitar amp.

This simple way of listening thru the chain (re-amp mode), and being able to bypass the mic pre, DAW or tape machine in the chain (DI mode), makes level adjustments a snap. Assuring you a re- amped guitar sound exactly as what was heard when laying down the track.

The heart of the original Red Eye was a Little Labs custom wound transformer. This transformer was chosen for its sonic characteristics. It is made with the same core material and winding technique as the legendary UTC transformers, found in many classic pro audio devices. The Red Eye 3D features two of these excellent transformers for simultaneous direct box and re- amping use. We have also added a very high quality, phantom powered, high impedance (10M ) instrument buffer.
When you are using the this unit with sensitive passive or piezo pick ups, this high quality buffer assures no tone change from loading will occur. For those who use active pick ups or prefer the sound of a passive direct box, you still have the option of plugging into the Red Eye 3D direct box passively as in the original Red Eye. The Red Eye 3D sounds amazing and even if you never used it for re-amping, it is an incredible value just as a direct box.
