Makes Your Acoustic Sound Like a Million Bucks!
The magic behind the Aura Spectrum DI is in the "Aura Acoustic Imaging" that Fishman came up with. Basically, they've capture the snapshot tone of the world's best acoustic instruments miked with the best microphones and using the best acoustic-recording techniques. Using this knob, you can match your acoustic guitar to the Aura Spectrum DI. Use one of the body presets for a pretty decent match to your instrument — all the popular guitar types are there... dreadnought, jumbo, 12-string, nylon, etc. But if you're serious about your tone, and we know you are, you're going to use a preset match for a specific image, taken from Fishman's "Aura Gallery." That way you can get the best-possible sound outta your trusty old 6-string (or 12-string... you know what we mean).
What else is on the Aura Spectrum DI? Every other knob you're going to want to have handy when you're onstage with your acoustic. You've got a one-knob compressor for fattening up your acoustic tone, a 3-band EQ for making it sing just as sweetly as you want, a chromatic tuner with muting for easy tune-ups between songs, and then volume and blend controls. And hey, there's even an effects loop if you have something else you've just gotto put in the chain. Last up, how could we forget the "DI" feature? On the output side of the Aura Spectrum DI, you've got a balanced XLR output for shooting your tone straight into the PA. It all adds up to acoustic tone like you would not believe, and an audience full of smiling people. If you're opening, you're going to sound so good that they wish you were the main act. And if you're the main act, you better get your tip jar out there... it doesn't get better than sweet, singing acoustic tone — and a wad of cash after a gig that went right!
