Presenting the Two Notes Torpedo C.A.B. Speaker Cabinet Simulator Pedal.
The Two Notes Audio Engineering Torpedo C.A.B. («Cabinets in A Box») is a high-end cabinet simulator in a stompbox format. It includes all the great features of the legendary Torpedo Live, without the loadbox but with an input stage specifically tailored to accept pedal-level signals.
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.
The Torpedo C.A.B features Two-Notes's Exclusive Torpedo technology. 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 (speaker, microphone, preamplifier, studio room acoustic).
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 behavior (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.
We know you love those little effects stompboxes and we definitely want you to use them with the Torpedo C.A.B. Place it at the end of your effect chain and all need to carry your amp will be gone. Plug it into the PA and you will be ready to go with a great sound. Most notably: the Torpedo C.A.B. is the very first stompbox-style Impulse-Response Loader!
The Torpedo C.A.B. features 2 user-assignable footswitches. Assignable functions include Preset selection, Bypass, Mute, EQ On/Off and more…
Connect your preamplifier directly to the Torpedo C.A.B. and take advantage of Two-Notes's exclusive tube power amp simulation. Select a type of amplifier and its characteristics, a tube model, and make your preamp sing as it deserves !
With its clear and intuitive interface, The Torpedo Remote software 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.
The team at Two-Notes borrowed the concept of Arcade VS Simulation from the world of video games. The Arcade mode is usually the easy way to, for example, drive a race car. You can hit obstacles,other cars, you can still win the race. We recommend that for your first experience with The Torpedo C.A.B. you start with the Arcade preset mode to get more familiar with the concept of virtual miking.
The simulation mode is not for beginners and requires more experience and knowledge about how the car actually works, depending on many tiny but still important parameters (weather, type of tires, track design…). In that preset mode you will gain access to the full list of parameter, to fine tune your sound and make it perfect to your ears.
The Torpedo C.A.B. takes place on a pedalboard, after a preamp, among your usual stompboxes.
