This is a great DI and keeps your tone pristine and true. We do all of our sound engineering through other means (e.g. pickups, pedals, etc.) and just use this DI to split the signal to run it down to the FOH or recording mixer. More specifically, I loop 4 different instruments in my live shows for each song (e.g. drums, guitar, bass, ukulele) and I use 5 of these DI's to split each signal before the loop pedal, and the one signal after the loop pedal, to send to an interface for recording. Highly recommend, but don't just take my word for it, check out all the great reviews on Radial products everywhere, there's a reason these guys are one of the best.
