MOTU is now shipping ZBox, a guitar pickup adapter that matches the output impedance of a guitar with instrument inputs on audio interfaces or other devices.

ZBox is designed with matching circuits that emulate the two-jack switching network found on many classic amplifiers, with analog simulation of the input tube grid.

Plug a guitar into ZBox's Lo-Z or Hi-Z input (whichever sounds better), and plug the ZBox's built-in, 16" cable with 1/4" jack into the guitar input on the destination device (audio interface, wireless box, mixer, recorder, PA, etc.)

ZBox is housed in a 1" x 1.75" x 2.5" aluminum housing that can be velcroed or duct-taped to a guitar strap for live performance through a wireless transmitter.

ZBox is suitable for use with any device that has an "instrument" or preamp input for a guitar, MOTU says.

Examples include:
  • Audio interfaces
  • Mixers
  • Recording devices
  • Wireless transmitters
  • PA systems
  • Effects processors

ZBox is not a computer interface and does not require any software drivers. It does not require a power source or extra cables (just the cable from the guitar).

Pricing & Availability
ZBox is now shipping. Price is $39.95.
