Red Secret DI

Red Secret DI

The secret ingredient for your sound.
The new version of the legendary Red Secret

After five successful years of the Red Secret we decided to
issue a follow up based upon feedback from customers, as well as integrating innovative ideas of our own.

The new version which replaces the original design features a more effective tone control, more gain, and more output. Also ICs have been selected to archieve an even lower noise floor level.

In addition to that, a footswitch has been implemented, a high grade bypass buffer added, and last but not least: We integrated a studio quality frequency compensated DI output, which can also be used as a headphone output.

In addition to the “TONE“ control knob, bass and mids can be tweaked at the bottom of the unit with the included adjustment screwdriver.

The DI output features a speaker simulation that can be connected directly to a high level input of a mixing console or a soundcard.
The Red Secret DI can also be used as a stand alone speaker simulation for devices connected to the input.

The unit is of great value to guitarists that want to play with a minimal but effective setup.
E. g.: guitar → RSDI → high level input of mixing console.
The clean guitar signal passes the speaker simulation and gains enough volume to be fed directly into the mixing console.
The distorted sound can be chosen with the footswitch.

RSDI can also be used effortlessly in a (home-)studio enviromnent.
Just add some EQ or reverb according to taste and you have a great guitar track!

When using the RSDI on a pedalboard, the signal can be routed through the DI output and can be fed directly into a mixing console, thus correcting the entire pedal board for a full range system.
Simple: Use OUT for a guitar amp, use DI for a full range system on your board. RSDI also corrects your clean signal this way.

Both outputs can also be used simultaneously.

Red Secret DI was completely developed and assembled by hand in germany.

Three controls. Countless possibilities.

Red Secret – Drei einfache Regler

Distortion

Use the pre-control to regulate your desired level of distortion. After choosing your basic setting, you can still control distortion thresholds on your guitar.

Sound

Use the tone-control to emphasize the “heavy” bass  (left) or the “blues” mids (right). Left in central position, the sound will remain neutral.

Volume

Use the post-control to keep complete and easy control of the default output level. Once you have set your desired default output level, it will remain constant even when you change the Pre or Tone settings.

On stage

Flexible control at your fingertips.

Start by setting your default sound on the red secret – then, whenever you want to change it, simply use the volume knob on your guitar. In this way, placing emphasis on individual passages of music whenever you desire will be easy.

In the studio
