Two notes Audio Engineering, creator of the worldís best speaker cabinet simulation, has bridged a new technological gap with the Torpedo Reload, your new high-end device for silent playing and reamplification. The Reload is the ideal combination of the devices you must have in a modern studio for the recording of electric guitars and basses: a power attenuator, a multi-impedance loadbox, a DI and re-amping box ñ it does it all and does it perfectly too. The Two notes philosophy stands in one word, transparency. The tone must come from your guitar, your amp and cabinet ñ not from the electronics that we put between parts of your regular setup. The concept 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 oneís best trying to reduce the volume. RE-ACT‚Ñ¢: Reactive-Active attenuator Attenuators are usually known for the negative impact they have on your tone in cases of heavy attenuation. On the contrary, the Reactive-Active technology presents your amplifier with a consistent speakerís impedance no matter what level of attenuation youíre at, and thus preserves the specific character of your amplifier. With a choice of 4, 8, or 16 Ohms, your amplifier (up to 150W RMS) willactually see real speaker impedance, and your tone will remain constant throughout the continuous attenuation curve. Transparency is the key. The result of years of research, the RE-ACT‚Ñ¢ technology (Reactive-Active Attenuator) will tame your amplifier without ever betraying it. From 0dB attenuation to total silencing, you can nonetheless choose between absolute transparency to more vintage or modern tone coloring with the CONTOUR. HI-Z DI box Plug your guitar into the DI Input and send that signal to your recorder. At that stage what you want is clarity and Two notes preserves your guitarís tone, as you will certainly want to re-inject it into your amp through the REPLAY‚Ñ¢. Loupe_INST-IN REPLAY‚Ñ¢ One of the most interesting options in studios nowadays: play the guitar one day, and mike the amp (or many different amps) another. The Torpedo Reload is your re-amplifying device of choice. The most difficult part in re-amplification techniques is finding the output level on the DAW that matches the level of your guitar when it is directly connected to the amplifier. That problem is now solved, thanks to theReloadís uniqueÖ Fonction MATCH‚Ñ¢ This Two notes innovation is the solution to the problem of level adjustment when re-amplifying. MATCH‚Ñ¢ compares the signal as it comes from the guitar (plugged to the DI input) with the signal that has been recorded (and which is sent to the REPLAY‚Ñ¢ Line Input) so that what you send the amp is the ideal level only. Now you can be sure that the signal you send from the DAW is exactly what your guitar itself would be sending. Wall of Sound and the famous Torpedo virtual cabinets Wall of Sound (WoS) is a speaker and miking simulation plugin. A plugin is a software you can load on a track of your sequencer, such as Cubase, Logic, Pro Tools, Reaper, inside your Digital Audio Workstation.
