The GMF Ai1 Preamp/DI was designed specifically to meet the needs of acoustic players. The Ai1 can be used for acoustic guitar, violin, mandolin or just about any acoustic instrument with a pickup installed. It can also be used for electric guitars and basses with magnetic pickups. If you do live sound for events, the Ai1 should be in your toolbox!
The GMF Ai1 is designed for professional musicians with added features for home or private practice, and also with the audio/video integrator in mind. Don't worry about it taking up too much room, it will easily fit in your gig bag and in most instrument cases.
The Ai1 features a variety of inputs and outputs, greatly simplifying signal management. To eliminate the need for various adapters, a 'Swiss Army' array of connections are provided, including 1/4" for instruments, "stereo" (RCA) Line In and Line Out connectors for consumer electronics and computers, and balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/4" line outputs for professional PA systems and mixer boards.
For the pro musician, the Ai1 is a quality DI and full-featured preamp with active tone controls. Whether at a local open mic night or at a major concert venue, you will be able to dial in your clear natural acoustic sound and route it through a balanced XLR output or unbalanced standard line output to the PA sound system.
For practice, you can use the Ai1 to connect your acoustic instrument into your home theater system or just plug in a pair of headphones for private listening. By using the Stereo Line In, you can also add backing tracks to the mix.
