Z-TONE DI Box from IK Multimedia

IK Multimedia

Your instrument’s golden channelThe Z-TONE DI from IK Multimedia combines the award-winning sound shaping from IK’s AXE I/O interface with the flexibility to record both processed and DI guitar tracks at the same time, as well as best-in-class sound quality. It takes any audio interface (or live mixer) to the next level using the same techniques in the studio as pros like Joe Satriani. So when you want to track guitars the way the pros do, with a new level of sound quality and powerful workflow? Look no further than the groundbreaking Z-TONE™ DI.

Keep Your Sound Completely Pure and Transparent

IK Multimedia

Comprehensive options Z-TONE DI offers a range of useful output options. The balanced XLR output offers a switchable ground lift, to eliminate noise and hum caused by ground loops, and an unbalanced ¼” output offers additional flexibility.

A Whole New way to Record

IK Multimedia

Flexibility with two tracks simultaneously Z-TONE DI lets you record two tracks simultaneously: the processed track coming from your amp and effects rig, and a direct track for post-processing using amp sims like the included AmpliTube 4. This way you can record with your real gear, and at the same time have maximum tone flexibility with a second track that you can process and fine-tune at will, without countless takes.

Powerful Tone Shaping Options


Pick your pickup:PASSIVE: Designed to accommodate everything from low-output vintage pickups to hotter modern humbuckers with ultra-low noise and extended frequency response.

ACTIVE: Bypasses unnecessary gain stages when using active pick-ups, to keep your signal path as direct and clean as possible.

Giving Yourself the Best Choice


Choose your channel:PURE: A completely transparent and ultra-accurate preamp circuit that won’t color your sound in any way.

JFET: A Class A JFET input buffer for subtle harmonic enhancement, midrange focus and warmth.

Tone and Feel like you’ve Never Heard

IK Multimedia

Z-TONE Circuits Guitar pickups can dramatically change their character depending on the impedance of your preamp. That’s why the tone and responsiveness of your guitar can change when plugging into different gear. Z-TONE DI puts you in control, with the same variable impedance control as our award-winning AXE I/O audio interface. Dial in impedance from 1 MOhm to 2.2 kOhms to shape your sound In unique ways. At the maximum impedance, you’ll find your sound tighter, sharper and more precise. Increase the load and the sound becomes thicker and more bold. You’ll quickly find yourself using this to give your guitars even more sonic character, dialing in sound that fits beautifully into the mix without the need for EQ.
