This Torpedo Studio has been fully inspected and tested by British Audio, North American service center for Two Notes. It has been fully tested and firmware has been updated to the latest version. This lightly used unit was beautifully taken care of. Only small signs of wear.
The Torpedo Studio…
… is the next generation of the world-acclaimed VB-101, this is the pinnacle of speaker and miking simulation – the ultimate load box! Its new features notably include a new load box with increased admissible power, a switchable impedance (4, 8, or 16 Ohms), and the possibility to choose between resistive and reactive load box. Its new, enhanced design makes it a more advanced, much lighter successor to the previous.
You love the sound of your amplifier pushed right to the magic sweet spot where the best tones are. Until now, the only available option was blasting your sound through a 4×12″ to properly excite a microphone. Enter Torpedo, the simplest and most realistic way to get your sound to your audience. Use the amp you love!
Everything that makes a real amp rule over all the other alternatives is retained. You can even record silently late at night ! Gone is the backache from the loadout, complaints from neighbours, venue staff or even bandmates and the frustration of not being able to sound at one’s best trying to reduce the volume.
DynIR – The tech behind Torpedo
Highly realistic speaker simulation is achieved by use of convolution. Two notes started from that technology and brought it much further, to accurately reproduce the characteristics of the whole miking chain with the DynIR technology.
Many parameters influence the sound of your guitar or bass rig when it comes to recording. Taking good care of the cabinet selection and miking will dramatically improve the sound of your takes. The Torpedo simulation reproduces the tiniest variations of a cabinet behaviour (such as its frequency response). Move the microphone in the virtual studio room thanks to the Torpedo IR synthesis: all the settings you need to achieve great recordings are here.
Load box with adjustable impedance
Use your amplifier without speaker cabinet thanks to the load box of the Torpedo Studio. Its adjustable impedance of 4, 8 or 16 Ohms and its high admissible power (150W) makes it suitable for any amp. The reactive impedance faithfully imitates a speaker, allowing the amp to work exactly as if it was connected to a speaker cabinet.
Dual mono/stereo miking
combined simulation of 2 cabinets + 2 microphones for optimal mixing. Position two different microphones before your speaker, or before two different speakers. Mix the two simulations to send them to the stereo outputs
when recoding guitars and basses it is common to apply a few effects to shape the sound before it is sent to the PA or recorder. The Studio comes with a powerful semi-parametric EQ, and exciter, a compressor and a wonderful reverb.
Control your Torpedo & access the Two notes Boutique
With its clear and intuitive interface, Torpedo Remote will give you access to all parameters on your Torpedo, including loading and saving presets, loading new IRs, and updating the unit’s firmware. You can pick any speaker cabinets from the Two notes Store, preview them on your own tracks in real time, and choose to buy the ones you prefer.
