Overview

The Mackie MDB-2P is a stereo passive direct box designed to connect two mono instruments or a single stereo instrument to microphone preamps for musicians and audio engineers in recording sessions, houses of worship, and live stage applications. It converts high-impedance, instrument-level signal via its 1/4" TS unbalanced inputs to low-impedance, mic-level outputs via balanced XLR 3-pin jacks. Two 1/4" TS through jacks allow simultaneous connection to amplifiers or pedalboards.

Each channel offers a -15 dB pad for reducing the input level to prevent distortion when using a high-gain source. The ground-lift switch inhibits hum caused by ground loops. Due to passive design principles, the MDB-2P requires no batteries or power supply. Its sturdy steel chassis enables confident use in the studio or on the road.

Key Features

  • Connect two mono instruments such as guitars or basses or a stereo instrument such as a keyboard to microphone preamps
  • Converts high-impedance, unbalanced 1/4" TS inputs to low-impedance, balanced XLR mic-level outputs
  • 1/4" through jacks for routing to amplifiers or pedalboards
  • Per-channel -15 dB pad prevents overloading when accepting signal from a loud source
  • Ground-lift switch minimises hum
  • Passive design requires no batteries or power supply
