OVERVIEW

Delivers the great acoustic tone of studio miking in a versatile preamp.

The Fishman Aura Spectrum DI is a complete, professional all-in-one solution for the performing musician. Award-winning Aura technology restores a studio-miked sound to your undersaddle or soundhole pickup. Housed in a professional-quality direct box with features like 3-band EQ, a one-knob compressor, and Automatic Feedback Suppression, the Fishman Aura Spectrum DI delivers world-class acoustic tone on stage or in the studio.

Fishman Aura preamps and onboard imaging systems go beyond modeling to create a spacious sound that is both vivid and natural. The sound of your acoustic instrument in a room is a combination of time, space and distance, that's why no matter how great your undersaddle pickup or soundhole microphone sounds (and they can sound fantastic), there is still something missing - the instrument's aura. To recreate the sound that naturally surrounds your instrument in a room through an amplifier or PA, we created Aura imaging technology.





Imaging - Beyond Modeling





Using a selection of the most coveted microphones and Fishman's Aura algorithms, they developed a library of images that when blended with the pickup sound on your guitar, create a dramatic, natural sound.
All Aura products come loaded with a selection of images. And depending on the device, your Aura is pre-loaded with a selection of images that correspond to your specific guitar model or are a "greatest hits" from Fishman's Aura image library. As an Aura owner, you can download images from the image library at Fishman's website to customize yourr Aura to match your own performance requirements.








Aura Image Gallery









Fishman's Aura Image Gallery software is a PC/Mac-compatible application that allows users to access images for hundreds of guitar makes and models through their free Aura image library. Once installed on your PC or Mac, the software also allows Aura images to be sorted, managed, and grouped. You can then take advantage of the preamp's open architecture by loading Aura images via a USB cable.

FEATURES
  • 128 pre-loaded Images for use with the most popular acoustic instruments
  • One bank of 16 user-configurable Image locations
  • Volume, Blend, and Image Select controls

  • Aura Gallery (software included)
  • 3-band EQ
  • 1-knob compressor

    I bought the Fishman Aura last December and wanted to use it a lot before writing a review so here I am 7 months later. I am very very happy with it.
    I am a semi-working musician and play about 5 gigs a month with it using a Taylor 810ce. It does indeed "Kill the Quack" and gives a much better acoustic sound. To my ear, the built in images were not what i wanted so it is all about downloading from the Fishman site into the 16 open slots. I found one I like pretty well, but is not perfect, so I will continue to rummage thru the other images available til I find what I really really like. Fishman says try to use an image closest to your guitar, but I do it a little differently. My one criticism of my Taylor's sound is that it is maybe a little too bright and the fact that I use fingerpicks doesn't help that out. So the Taylor images sound very very bright and trebley to me - which is likely accurate. So i actually settled on a Martin D35 image and it tones down that brightness beautifully.
    I find this one image works for me in big and small clubs and across a variety of house PA systems. I start with the guitar and aura flat on tone controls and then let the sound guy do his thing. When he has it where he wants it, I quietly do some last adjustments on the Aura tone controls and that does it. The tuner is adequate, the anti-feedback stunned me the first time i used it - it just grabbed 3 pesky frequencies and took them out. Have used it a few times since and it was not as impressive, but still helpful. I do not use the DI output as I go out of the Aura to a volume pedal and Boss loop station before I go to a separate DI and then to the house system.
    Expensive? Yep. Worth it? Yep!!!!

    Images and down-loading them? Use your e.q. and pay less for a D.I. box. If you buy the hype about images, that's why it's priced so high; in two years, you won't be able to down-load a thing, just like the original Aura - no follow-up. Save money, buy a basic D.I. box and "color" your tone with cheaper and just as good Boss pedals.

      the greatest misinterpreted unit ever

      By tommy

      from dc

      Comments about Fishman Aura Spectrum DI and Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

      i think there are a few people that are confused about the functionality of this pedal. it's not a modeler. what this thing does is enhance the sound of your instrument. if you have a 12 string, it will make your 12 string sound so much more natural by using the 12 string settings. it won't make a 6 string sound like a 12 string. it doesn't work that way. i just purchased a martin guitar equipped with the aura technology and couldn't be happier. all my friends are tying to figure out why my instrument sounds so great. if a modeler is what you are looking for, i would recommend checking out a line6 unit of some sort, but this pedal sure made it easy to get that "sound" of why you bought the instrument in the first place. it adds that fullness back to those thin twangy sounding piezzo pickups.
      coolest preamp i've ever seen for acoustic instruments. soundmen are gonna freak when you send them this signal.
      i would say a little expensive, but i would pay it. i don't think the price is reasonable for new guitarists yet, but i think it's just about worth every penny.

      from Spokane,Wa.

      Comments about Fishman Aura Spectrum DI and Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

      It's built very well. It sounds awesome and looks cool.It just needs some Nationals in the data base.
      The Aura Spectrum is an essential tool for any acoustic guitarist, who likes the sound of a mic'd instrument, without having to stay in one spot.
      The Aura's anti-feedback feature is a lifesaver and the controls are easy to use.(a colored dot on the knobs would make the levels easier to see at a glance). The amount of volume you get without feedback, when you first plug it in, will impress you. And it has built in tuner!
      The Aura also can be connected to your computer,via USB (cable included)so you can choose from a data base of guitar brands like Gibson, Martin etc.and microphones like Neumann and Shure.The selection for resonator guitars is lacking. No Nationals are listed. I'm hoping Fishman will remedy this problem.
      You can also use the factory pre-sets, if you don't own a computer. There are quite a few and they sound great! I use mine mainly plugged into a P.A.,but it works great in an amp,also.
      The Fishman Aura Spectrum DI uses one nine volt battery, which lasts for 20 hours or you can buy an optional ac adapter.
      The Aura Spectrum is housed in an aluminum box, with aluminum knobs and is built for the road.
      I like the way the battery fits with NO cheesy clips and wires that break when you try to jam it in a too small compartment.
      A little pricey for the working musician, but you get what you pay for in this case.

      Aura Spectrum DI and GTR PreAmp great device

      By Neal

      from Maryland

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Fishman Aura Spectrum DI and Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

      The closest thing I have to a "dislike" is that they could've provided more detail in the software help menu. That would've saved me a bit of time when I first tried to download images. However, once I figured it out, it was quite easy so...it is of little consequence. I think this is an outstanding product.
      This product works as advertised. It changes the sonic footprint of the guitar output before it reaches your amp. I found it very easy to use right out of the box, and I was fairly easily able to figure out how to download images from the manufacturer's website to add to the "user" bank of sounds. Not much detail of documentation provided, but I was able to deduce, with a little trial and error, how to store sounds in the provided software, and then load 16 at a time into the device's preset bank. It is VERY easy to use once plugged in and hooked up. You can easily adjust the mix between the guitar pick and the output of the Preamp, plus you have a simple compressor, EQ, feedback buster, and even a tuner thrown in for good measure (although the tuner does not appear to be exceptionally sensitive).

      To my surprise, MANY of the settings complimented my guitars and resophonic, even when using settings that did not closely match my actual instruments. The differences were sometimes subtle, sometimes not so subtle. I heard more difference with the mic changes than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise. (I was afraid my ordinary old ears wouldn't be able to distinguish any difference) Often one setting was quite different from another, but yet they both sounded good. If a particular setting did not sound good with my particular instrument, no problem. I just spun the dial or moved to another bank of "images" until I soon found something else that sounded great.
      The sound quality is great, which is what is most important to me. However, it is a plus that it is of solid metal construction and appears to be sturdy. It is also quite attractive in appearance, very well-crafted, and not junky or tacky looking. The controls are all easy to read.
      I was concerned that I might be paying too much for this device, having to go only by the company's hype and a few reviews before purchasing. However, I love this thing, the item is well worth the purchase price in my opinion.

        Comments about Fishman Aura Spectrum DI and Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

        This is a great pedal for playing live. It does take a bit of playing around with the settings to find just the "right sound for your ears" I guess it depends on the kind of guitar you're running thru the box. The compression helps out a lot if you're a big strummer, kind of takes out the jangle and high twangy sound you get from the PA speakers. Once you get it dialed in, I think it's the best electric/acoustic sound i've heard hands down. I've tried quite a bit of combos over the years and I think this is a keeper. It's a little pricy but catch it on sale. Spend a couple evenings experimenting and download the extra user settings, you'll love it.

        Comments about Fishman Aura Spectrum DI and Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

        The pedal is excellent. It actually made my acoustic guitars sound like acoustic guitars, through a pa, running direct. Very nice. I gave the 7 again because I received the returned, used, abused and broken one and that's not Fishman's fault. Otherwise it would have been a 10. The unit itselt is the best acoustic guitar pre-amp I've used yet live, and the easilly downloadable images are really great. You can forget about live mics and the near impossible reproduction of your guitar's natural sound though acoustic amps
        I'm giving the 7 because the problem wasn't the fault of Fishman. The unit arrived in obvious used, abused, and broken condition. There were fingerprints and scratches all over it and a couple of parts loose and it didn't work at all. The Fishman power adapter I bought with it was also used, scratched and some kind of goo on it with, believe it or not...cat hair stuck to it....after too many times during the past few months with the same situation, I've had enough...went to guitar center, bought another Aura Spectrum DI and it works great
        well made unit
        great value if you're lucky enough to get one, new in the box

        simply put, it'll make your guitar sound yummy
        Trying to find that perfect sound for your acoustic guitar can be frustrating. I went to a Ricky Skaggs concert and Ricky was using the Aura Spectrum when he played guitar. Yes Ricky normally plays mandolin, but also does a few acoustic tunes. After hearing his guitar, I walked up to the stage to see what he was running his guitar through. Sure thing.....it was an Aura Spectrum...and it sounded great. I had to have one for myself and have not looked back. You gotta get one.
        Well Built

        Aura Spectrum with other than Fishman Pickups

        By Seldom Heard

        from Plano, Texas

        See all my reviews

        Comments about Fishman Aura Spectrum DI and Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

        Would have loved to have given this device a ten, but..... You really need to research this device before you buy it. Optimum results are obtained ONLY when you use the Fishman undersaddle Matrix pickup. I have a Western Mini in a D-35 that works OK in that I can get a respectible sound, but not great. I have 2 Taylors with the Expression Systems and you have to disable the sound board pickups to feed the signal into this device. Again, disapointing twaingy results, but, it will work. I play a D-45 through a mic. Unfortunately, you can't run a mic through this box. On the other hand, my buddy has a Gibson Songwriter with the correct Fishman pickup and it sounds fantastic.
        This device is totally feature rich. I'm still trying to figure out how everything works, and, I'm still discovering new stuff.
        Built like a tank. It should last for years.
        Bit pricey, but, price depends upon your application and what you want this device to do.

          The best DI I've had, very handy features. The Aura software is great, but you'll need to fiddle with it to find the right image to match your guitar or it can sound wonky. I downloaded a couple of new images, which wasn't too hard, even though I don't usually do that kind of thing. Works equally well for my Martin, Taylor, and Breedlove, in band or solo situations.Worth the money, I recommended it if you really need to sound good live. I prefer a mic in the studio, but the Aura Spectrum works well in a pinch.

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Fishman Aura Spectrum DI and Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

          I purchased the Spectrum about 2 months ago and have had the chance to play it both live and in a recording studio plugging in a Breedlove Pro Series. I was very impressed with this new item in both venues. The tone control was great and I love that it has a tuner and the compressor is awesome. The only problem I have with it is that the images seem to be very high pitched and tinny sounding(for lack of a better word) though I have not taken advantage of the downloads. This could be my lack of experience with the box. I recommend only about 30 to 40% to get the best sound depending on the tone of the instrument itself. Overall this thing is very cool and much lighter than my amp to pack around.

I walked up to the stage and there it was the Fishman Aura Spectrum. I had to have one and purchased the next day on line. You won't be disappointed...lots of nice sounds for your acoustic.

          Cuts through!!

          Comments about Fishman Aura Spectrum DI and Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

          I bought this pedal from Guitar Center at the recommendation of my guitar teacher, a pro player who has played the Grand Ol' Opry. I was telling him that my acoustic (a Gibson SJ-200 Custom) has too big a sound, and despite EQ, tended to be too large in the mix when playing with my band. It just interfered with too many of the other frequencies, taking presence away from the vocals, etc. I played around with it on my own for a day, and was able to pull in some interesting sounds. But where this pedal really shines is when playing with a band. My acoustic parts cut through the mix more than they ever had before. They were punchy, clean, and I could easily dial in the right amount of jangle. And all this without hving to increase the volume. In fact, I was able to turn it DOWN! The other band members said they heard acoustic parts that they never knew were in the songs before. For the money, which is admittedly high, you're getting a DI, an EQ, a compressor, a feedback buster, a phase button, and mic emulators. All in one pedal. I love this thing!

            helps give the Taylor T5z a more accurate acoustic sound, and opens options for electric sounds. I first purchased an 'open box' unit that was supposed to be in 'near new' condition with minor blemishes in the finish at worst, but when it arrived it had 3 very scratchy pots including the volume pot, which made it unusable. I was able to return it, Musicians' Friend agreed to pay for shipping, and swap it out with a minor upcharge to a new unit which works perfectly. The Customer Service group at Musicians Friend was professional, easy to work with, and provided me with what I needed with no problems or issues.

              Comments about Fishman Aura Spectrum DI and Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

              I agree with all the positive comments. As for the negative, the specifics are missing, so I can't judge. As for myself I use a 1999 D-28 and a 1979 Yairi DY-50 cedar top. My original DY-50 had a rich, wide-range piano-like tone during the 14 years I owned it. I picked up another from the same limited edition recently that had a thin, brassy tone from a total lack of humidification over 37 years (which I'm slowly trying to reverse), but the Spectrum made it possible to attain the same tone as when new. That makes it well worth having. I also own a D-28, which I use mainly for downtuned finger-picking and has a different tone with stonger lower-mids. Thanks to the bank of 16 user-selected IRs, I can switch instruments and turn the selector by one click and I have two great-sounding guitars. What's missing (rather, what more I'd wish) would be MIDI-control of all the settings, but that would be too much for most acoustic guitarists. The only funtional down-side is that the machined aluminum knobs (some of which are small) have smooth sides, which requires a firmer grip than on any of my other devices and stomp boxes. Not a big deal, as the sound is what really matters.

                Comments about Fishman Aura Spectrum DI and Acoustic Guitar Preamp:

                This is a work in progress. I have had this for about a week in which I have had time to test it with my Martin OMXAE X series with Fishman Sonitone. Since it only has a volume & tone knob it is very nice to have low mid high EQ to adjust the tonal qualities. I've played it through Fender Vibrolux, Fender Deluxe, Fender Champion, Fishman Loudbox, and Fender Acoustasonic with all good results. The tuner, as previously noted, is not that great. You need to take some time to go through all the various settings. But unlike my effects pedals where you have click through each setting the Aura is easy to dial and choose especially if it is on table/chair etc (works if you are not moving around). It works good on the floor once you have selected your settings. The compression and blend allow some more sonic possibilities. I have not recorded with it yet or run it through a PA. Downloaded 16 user images easily from the website. Feedback has not been a problem with AF button.

                My partners in crime have also used the Aura and have been very happy with the way it sounds. One played through a Gibson J45 with a (LR Baggs) pickup in the sound hole. The other was a Martin D-35 with a pickup under the neck (type unknown)

                Yes it is pricey and yes I have just about the same controls on the Fishman Loudbox and Fender Acoustasonic but if I need to plug into something else this gives me the ability to shape my sound beyond my tone & volume control. If you have the money and you are looking to improve the sound of your guitar this just might be for you.

                  Great D.I.!

                  I bought this D.I., mostly because I have struggled to get a good "direct" sound for my National, Model D, Square neck, but will be using it for my Acoustic Guitars too. I was immediately, blown away by it's solid construction and it's "plug in and play" ease of use. Am able to get great sounds for my resonator and Bougeouis OM and Gibson J-200 as well. The built in Tuner, Compressor and Anti-Feedback are a major +!!!

                  I sent mine back and did not ask for a new one. fishman go back to D drawing board and do this right and I will buy it again gladly. Definitely the best acoustic modeling gizmo yet
                  Chorus switch did not change sound. High tone nob, also no change, 12 string effect, didn't work. tuner looked like a note rolodex, could not follow, did not agree with my Peterson strobe. However if they ever get the bugs worked out I will buy it again. Sent my Fishman Arua DI back.
                  Sorry guys it was broken. But! The stuff that did work made my little plastic martin DXIE sound awesome through a stage monitor and Im sure it would have given me high recording quality as well. I did not like the toggle switch.
                  If it all work as good as the parts that did work, then yes the value is great.

                  This is cool, I wouldn?t use it in the studio but for a live show it is amazing. The notch filter is a lifesaver and the modeling is perfect for a live show. Now on that note if you have a top end mic you will hear the difference between the two but there in no feedback and you?re not using a sm57. I have a loudbox mini for small shows and love it but with this I go right into the board. Less to carry and I think it ads to the sound of my dr500mce and 414ce.
