Walrus Audio Announces the Canvas Direct Box & Line Isolator
Walrus Audio has introduced the Canvas, a combination direct box and line isolator that comes in either mono or stereo versions. The new devices feature a flat frequency response from 20Hz to 20kHz with a transformer isolated output for clear, clean signal.
“Use the Canvas Mono and Stereo to convert your unbalanced signals into balanced signals for interfacing properly with your recording interface or mixer at front-of-house,” Walrus writes. “If you’re using an amp-in-a-box (DSP Guitar Rig) like the Walrus Audio ACS1, keyboards, drum pads, bass, or acoustic guitars, then the Canvas L.I/D.I.s are your new bridges to the front-of-house. The Canvas Series DIs pack everything you need from a DI/LI into a standard pedal-sized enclosure designed to look great right on top of your board.”
The Canvas operates in either direct box or line isolator modes. Other features include a ground lift, 15dB input pad, and a sum switch for output channel summing and thru channel options.
The Walrus Audio Canvas is available now for $149 for the Canvas Mono and $249 for the Canvas Stereo.
