The Canvas Mono is a dual-purpose line isolator and DI box and works by converting your unbalanced signal into a balanced signal for seamless integration with a recording interface or front of house mixing desk. Housed in a familiar stompbox sized chassis, the Canvas Mono fits perfectly on your pedalboard and is fully passive, which means it does not require power! The Canvas Mono features two modes of operation: DI mode and LI mode. DI mode is optimised for high impedance sound sources such as electric guitars or basses. LI mode is designed for low impedance line-level sound sources including amp sims and keyboards. A built-in 15dB input pad (DI mode only) minimises distortion on hotter signals, for complete rig versatility.
