MOTU Debuts ZBox Guitar Impedance Adapter

Tuesday January 19, 2010. 12:36 PM, by Nantho NAMM 2010 > Audio Hardware > Mark Of The Unicorn
Audio Hardware : MOTU Debuts ZBox Guitar Impedance Adapter - pcmusicMOTU is now shipping ZBox ($39.95), a guitar pickup adapter that matches the output impedance of a guitar with instrument inputs on audio interfaces or other devices.

Guitar inputs on audio interfaces, mixers, PAs, wireless transmitters, and other similar devices (often labeled "instrument") usually have impedance levels that differ significantly from those typically found on guitar amp inputs. This mismatch can make a guitar sound unnatural (too bright, thin and brittle). In addition, the guitar may not "feel right" while played through software- or DSP-driven amp models.

By providing the proper impedance levels, ZBox restores natural guitar tone that would otherwise be lost through a non-amp input.

ZBox is simple to use. Just plug a guitar into ZBox's Lo-Z or Hi-Z input (whichever sounds better), and plug the ZBox's built-in, 16" cable with 1/4" jack into the guitar input on the destination device (audio interface, wireless box, mixer, recorder, PA, etc.)

ZBox is housed in a small (1" x 1.75" x 2.5"), lightweight, virtually indestructible aluminum housing that can be conveniently velcroed or duct-taped to a guitar strap for live performance through a wireless transmitter.
ZBox is suitable for use with any device that has an "instrument" or preamp input for a guitar.

ZBox is not a computer interface and does not require any software drivers. It does not require a power source or extra cables (just the cable from the guitar).

ZBox is now shipping. Price is $39.95.
