Product Description

Unveiled at NAMM 2017, French manufacturer Two Notes Audio Engineering combine a DI box, attenuator, cab simulator and loadbox into one amazing unit.

The Torpedo Captor is an incredibly versatile piece of kit, allowing you to harness the full power of your tube amp in any settings - you can use it at home, in the studio, in rehearsal or live on stage. It either processes your signal 100% uninterrupted at full volume, or with a preset -20dB attenuation, and allows you to seamlessly mimic your favourite cabs without the associated hassle. Play or record in total silence but with the full projecting power of a 4x12 - plug straight into your favourite DAW and let the Torpedo Captor do the work!

Using reactive technology, its loadbox functionality is designed to make your amp believe it's connected to a cabinet, perfectly mimicing the impedance of a speaker. The analogue speaker sim function is built on Two Notes acclaimed 'Le Preamp', for mind blowing accurate tone and warmth. Available in 4, 8 or 16 Ohm versions to match your amp, you'll be able to find that sweet spot without the noise or hassle!

Here's what Two Notes have to say about the Torpedo Captor:

The Torpedo Captor is an easy to use reactive Loadbox, perfect for unleashing a musician’s favourite valve/tube amplifier in a variety of modern applications and venues. Designed to be placed between an amplifier head and speaker cabinet or with a combo with amp/speaker connections, Captor can act as a power attenuator/cabinet simulator and is packed in a DI sized enclosure that features a complete set of connections.

Initial experience indicates it does the job pretty well. It lacks some of the flexibility of more expensive models from Two Notes and UA, but that's to be expected. Very solid construction. Good value for money if you consider the included license for the Torpedo Wall of Sound plug-in.

It’s a fantastic loadbox, but the speaker simulation sounds terrible. I keep it turned off and use a Logidy EPSi directly after for speaker simulation and a touch of room verb. Sounds great!
