United Plugins DIFIX
Direct Input Plugin
A lot of sound cards claim to have a Hi-Z instrument input. But in reality, the input impedance is not high enough to make your pick-ups work properly. And that has a displeasing effect on your instrument‘s signal. If you use one of the kind you definitely need DIFIX to make your directly recorded guitar or bass sound right.
What it does
A sound card's instrument input is not the same as a proper DI-box. When plugging your guitar or bass directly in it your recording may lose brilliance and sound really dull. DIFIX deploys several independent sophisticated processes to level the sound and adds a little bit of analog saturation as if you used a real DI-box.
(Not only) for home studios
Mostly, you will need DIFIX when recording in a home studio with a cheap sound card. But we dare to say even with a hundreds-dollars hardware DIs you may still need a little fix. The question is not IF but HOW MUCH.
First step fix
DIFIX should be inserted as the first plugin on the guitar track. After you fix the input imperfections, use all your favorite guitar effects and amp simulations.
All the science is inside this easy looking plugin and so controlling it is no science at all. Simply choose if you are recording guitar or bass and decide how much should DIFIX improve your input signal.
Save Your Old Records
To play it fair, DIFIX can fix a lot. It can save and help to remix your old records. But if you are serious about direct recording, buy a proper DI-box and use DIFIX in combination with it.

Realistic 3D yet Flexible GUI
Photorealistic graphic user interface of the plugin gives you the feeling you are touching the real hardware. But it easily adapts to your needs. You can always drag the arrow in the bottom right corner to change its size - make it smaller to save the valuable screen space, or enlarge it to make it easier to use.
