    Use the M-Audio preamp as a direct box for high impedance signals from guitars, basses or other sources for recording with optimal results.

    The ultra-quiet M-Audio (used to be MidiMan) Audio Buddy 2-channel preamp offers the features and performance you need to track great-sounding music on your computer. You get professional microphone support along with line inputs impedance-matched for ideal performance with electric guitar and bass. Each channel offers individually adjustable gain, balanced XLR with phantom power or a 1/4" instrument level input, and independent 1/4" outputs (unbalanced or balanced TRS).

    2-channel mic preamp and direct box, works with electric guitars and bass setup:
    DI XLR Out -> AudioBuddy Mic Preamp -> Mic Input

    I was asked how to use this with a DAW:

    Plug your source into either "instrument input(1/4")/mic in(XLR)" and then take a 1/4" cable and plug it in as output. The other end of that same output cable connects to your audio interface input with either 1/4" or XLR end. The audio interface is what connects to your computer via USB/FireWire. Check the levels in your DAW and you're ready to go.

    Frequency Response: 5Hz-50kHz, +0, -3dB; Mic Gain: 60dB maximum; Mic Input Impedance: 1kOhm; Guitar Gain: 40dB maximum; Guitar Input Impedance: 100kOhms
    Size and Weight: 5-1/2” x 3-3/8” x 1-3/4”; less than 1/2 lb.

    Price includes AC adapter.

    All inputs/outputs tested and this unit works fine. Please see the images. Take a good look and ensure it is correct for your application before buying. All sales final. Images are provided for reference and for actual product info.

    Will ship it USPS low-and-slow, or your method at your cost, or you can come to the studio to hear it and pay and take it then.

    That bottom diagram unnecessarily confuses matters. It indicates "digital audio" between the Audio Buddy and the "computer w/audio interface" yet there are no digital outputs on the Audio Buddy.

    I pulled the image in question, for reference, from the M-Audio website listing for that exact product, here:
    M-Audio

    "Computer with Audio Interface" = how to use this with a DAW: I addressed this as described above when someone else asked (on a different forum):

    Plug your source into either "instrument input(1/4")/mic in(XLR)" and then take a 1/4" cable and plug it in as output. The other end of that same output cable connects to your audio interface input with either 1/4" or XLR end. The audio interface is what connects to your computer via USB/FireWire. Check the levels in your DAW and you're ready to go.
