Specs

Knobs

Volume
Use this to control the overall output level. It affects the preamp level to the balanced XLR Out, unbalanced 1/4" Line Out, and Phones outputs. Use it wisely and turn it down when making connections, putting on headphones, or trying something new. It does not affect the signal fed to the Aux Input
Bass
Use this to adjust the low frequency level of the SCR-DI. This provides up to 14 dB of boost, or 14 dB of cut, at 40 Hz. The low frequency output is flat at the center position
Mid
Use this to adjust the midrange frequency level of the SCR-DI. This provides up to 5 dB of boost, or 11 dB of cut, at 500 Hz. The midrange frequency output is flat at the center position. Rotate the control counter-clockwise for a “contoured” sound (more distant, less midrange output), or clockwise for a sound that really cuts through.
Treble
Use this to adjust the high frequency level of the SCR-DI. This provides up to 16 dB of boost, or 15 dB of cut, at 4 kHz. The high frequency output is flat at the center position
AUX Level
Use this to control the output level of the signal fed to the Aux Input. Use it wisely and turn it down when making connections, putting on headphones, or trying something new.
Drive
Use this to adjust the amount of Bass Scrambler overdrive effect. Rotate the control clockwise for a more overdriven sound, or counter-clockwise for a less overdriven sound
Blend
Use this to blend the Bass Scrambler affected signal with the clean, unaffected signal

Outputs

Input
The signal output from an instrument (active or passive) may be connected to this 1/4" Input by means of a shielded instrument cable
Thru
This is where you connect instrument-level, parallel effects devices (such as an FX device chain, processors, or tuner). This output is unaffected by the SCR-DI’s circuitry
Aux In
The audio output from line level sources, such as a mobile device, MP3, or CD player, can connect to either of these inputs. The incoming audio is mixed with the preamp signals and appears in the Headphone Out only Post: Gain, AGS, EQ and Master settings will be sent to the D.I. XLR output jack
XLR Out
Balanced XLR Line out
Line Out
Balanced 1/4" Line out jack Typically, these outputs connect to the balanced input of an external mixer, recorder, or interface. In this way, you do not have to mic the speaker cabinet in order to add it to the main mix or to record. The level of these signals are af- fected by the Volume control only when EQ is active
Phones
Use this 1/8"TRSstereo output to connect your headphones. The output here is a mix of the instrument signals reaching the SCR-DI, and any incoming audio from the Aux Input jacks

Ground Lift

Ground Lift
If there is a hum when using the D.I, there may be a ground loop. In many cases, pushing in the Ground/Lift button can fix this problem

Switches

Ultra Lo
This switch, when engaged, enhances the amount of low- end output by 1 dB at 40 Hz, and 10 dB cut at 500 Hz
Ultra Hi
Thisswitch,whenengaged, enhances the amount of high frequency output by 5 dB at 8 kHz
Scrambler
Engage this switch to activate the Bass Scrambler overdrive circuit. This allows for varying amounts of tube-like grind and distortion
EQ switch
Engage this switch to activate or bypass the EQ section. NOTE: The EQ and Bass Scrambler overdrive circuits are able to be activated and bypassed independently via their footswitches

Power

Battery
The SCR-DI may be powered by 9V battery instead of using a power supply. As seen in the illus- tration above, a 9V battery fits nicely inside a compartment of the circuit board next to the edge of the pedal
External DC Power
External: 9–12V DC @ 100mA
