      Wil9, What are you calling a DI?
      Not sure what you mean. I use a DI box but not for the drums.

        Thanks for the reply, I mean a direct interface box, a DI between the TD brain & the PA.

          As all inputs and most outputs on vdrums are balanced I see no value in using a DI between the module and the PA. What problem are you trying to fix by using a DI?

            Thanks for your response, not really trying to fix anything, just didn't know if you needed a DI on E-drums

              Oh, ok no DI required output is line level ok for amp or mixer.
              By the way welcome to the forum, have fun!

                Module outputs are, in fact, UNbalanced, so a DI is a good idea where there is a long cable run to the mixer. It would also protect your module if phantom power is enabled on the mixer.

                If you don't have a long cable run, and can ensure that phantom power is not an issue, then a DI is not necessary.

                I always use an active DI box.
