Testing a DI after a bath
« on: August 20, 2011, 03:23:11 pm »

Got rained on last night and three of my Radial Pro DIs were late getting under plastic.  They weren't immersed but got rained on briefly with the cables plugged in.  They're drying out now, but is there a simple way to test a DI without running an instrument through it?  I can always borrow a guitar but if there's a reliable test without one that'd save me some time.

Do a transfer function.  That should show up any defects in level or response.

If you just need a test of basic function:  Plug in a normal dynamic mic :)

Thanks Ivan.  The test method idea was excellent and the DIs were fine.
