Four clean track DI channels and four Real-Amp™ reverse DI channels


The LZ8 takes the pristine, transformerless DI and Real-Amping™ technologies of the MW1 and multiplies it by four - all in one rack space!  It's the ultimate level and impedance matching interface, whether as an MW1 accessory or standing alone.


The LZ8 is built to order. Delivery time is 3 to 6 weeks. To inquire, please contact us at or (615) 884-7520

LZ8 Studio Tool

  • Four floating transformerless guitar and bass DI channels with:

    • Hi-Z IN - Instrument level input.

    • INPUT-Z ATTENTUATION - variable impedance control (10K to 10M ohms).

    • GAIN - Level matching control (-6 to +30dB).

    • BAL OUT - Balanced TRS output with shield GND LIFT.


    Four floating Real-Amping™ reverse DI channels with:

    • BAL IN - Balanced TRS inputs with shield GND LIFT.

    • ATTENTUATION - Level matching control (+6 to -30dB).

    • OUTPUT-Z - variable impedance control (50 to 50K ohms).

    • HiZ OUT- Instrument level output.

    • Isolated power supply.


    Here are a few applications

    • Insert stomp box overdrive distortion and effects pedals in your studio path.

    • Insert professional studio signal processing gear into your guitar or bass instrument level effects pedal chain.

    • Boost your instruments to line level for DI tracking.

    • Attenuate your line level signals to instrument level for Real-Amping™.

    • Boost your instrument up to line level for a patchbay mult to split the signal to a DI track and simultaneously feed it back down to instrument level for multiple, composite amplifiers.

    • Use the impedance controls conservatively to match your instrument's original tone, or in exaggerated ways to shape and discover new tones.

    • Use two LZ8's (one in the control room and one in the studio) to pipe instrument signals up through long, line-level balanced snakes; then back down to instrument level at the opposite end. A great way to leave your amplifiers in isolation and allow the band to stay in the control room.

    • The LZ8 is a tool, use your imagination to invent new uses.
