Online PR News – 15-December-2014 – West Des Moines, Iowa – West Des Moines, Iowa – GMF Music is proud to announce the Ai1, an innovative DI with preamp. The Ai1 is a studio quality DI with preamp that has been road tested by professional musicians. Designed with uncompromising sound quality and included features for musicians on the go.

The Ai1 has been road tested by professional musicians for quality and durability. Dial in a clear natural acoustic sound and route it through a balanced XLR output or unbalanced standard line output to the PA sound system.

The Ai1 is also designed to connect an acoustic instrument into a home theater system or any sound source with stereo RCA compatible inputs, and with the optional 1/8-inch to RCA adapter even use a car stereo as an amplifier. This feature is great for a jam session on the beach or at the lake. The Ai1 also has a built in headphone jack for private practice or playing. In addition the Ai1 features RCA stereo line in and offers an MP3 interface adapter to add music or backing tracks to the mix.

“The Ai1’s innovative design and engineering allows professional and amateur musicians to do more. Surface mount technology means all these features come in a compact package for musicians on the go.” (Greg Farres – GMF Music CEO)
