This is an essential addition to any laptop live performer's set-up, allowing you to rid yourself of the most annoying problem found on stage - the laptop hum. We've all been there: you spend ages getting the production on your tracks right and then when it comes to the performance the sonics are destroyed by the earth hum.

The diminutive DTI offers XLR (balanced), 1/4-inch TRS (unbalanced) and RCA connections for both input and output, so there shouldn't be any connectivity issues,
and it's all housed in a rugged aluminium case so it should be able to survive the rigours of stage use.

The only drawback is that the inputs tend to cancel each other out when connected. It would be great to be able to connect more than one source at a time and play back from both simultaneously to allow artists to mix into each other.

This is a very useful product if you want to be able to play out with your laptop in total confidence.
