The Torpedo C.A.B. ("Cabinets in A Box") is a high-end, stompbox-style speaker simulator specially designed to accept guitar/pedal-level input signals. The Torpedo C.A.B. presents 2 switches that can be user-customized. Among the available options are: preset selecting, bypass, mute, EQ, etc. Guitarists equipped with a MIDI system can control the Torpedo C.A.B. via the MIDI input. Plug the Torpedo C.A.B. in at the very end of your effects chain and directly into your PA, and enjoy the splendid sound of your guitar without need to carry your amplifier around. The Torpedo simulation faithfully reproduces the behavior of speaker cabs down to their tiniest nuances, and the Torpedo Impulse-Response synthesis allows you to finely adjust the position of the microphone inside your virtual studio space.

Bierrepc's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" Full of cabs for the price of one"

Two Notes Audio Engineering Torpedo C.A.B. (Cabinets in A Box)
I will not repeat the turn of the owner ...

I use the Torpedo with PodHD500.
I see full make big eyes ... Yes, yes you read that right.
In PodHD, what is interesting is that there are two types of simulations:
Was the
- Amp simulations (preamp + power amp)
- Pre amp simulations.
For my part, I take the simulation preamp that I am sending the Torpedo Mixer output via the effects loop before putting effects such as reverb or delay.
In the Torpedo, I no longer have to choose the type of amp. In general, I take the Class A amps that allow me to not have to settle presence.
After I chose the speakerphone, microphone and its placement, I made my little sauce in the EQ, I made the gaffe input gain and output and I just play.

I also have pedals BlackStar, but I would need a noise gate to good use and with time, I do not see too many differences between these small boxes and PODHD both Torpedo CAB is effective.
To erase a maximum digital sound effect at the PodHD, I put between the POD and the Sound Card, a Behringer UltraGain2200.

For the bass, I have a preamp Eden WTDI I plug directly into the Torpedo.
I generally use simulation Hartke 4x10 "which is gorgeous and has more bass (I think) that the simulated Ampeg 8x10", while having more punch.

jack on standard 6.5 "
there is a free editor available on the website builder
it is the "pedal" model so it was a little fat (only 1 speaker at a time) but the key is the

used with various pedals and preamp Mesa
it's really good ... think a boy of 4 years could be used without reading the manual!
I do not know if the book is good or not because I do not know where I put it and I did not even open once!

As always there are more or less happy combination, but frankly it sounds very good. For use in home studio is really perfect.
to play live on a good PA ca going very well too .. after jai not try all models either!

I use it for a few months now and I am very happy. The price is a bit high I think for just a simulation of baffle but it is true that it sounds and once you have it, there are countless start backwards! if I change it will be just for the rack model. So in the end the value for money is ok, it was worth the money because it's solid stuff, and think that sounds good.

the only complaint is that we can not put all in the cab beast at a time (there not fit badly even qd). So we must make choices. I turns all low cab and even by ca I can not have all those guitar. Beside jai 500 memory slot empty for IRs that I use only very very rarely because the cab of the torpedo are very good! it's a shame but nothing dramatic either.

the software could be better too ... but I rarely used men therefore not very serious either.

Basically if you buy this, you go you find 4 or 5 cab nickel works with your gear for clean, crunch and distortion and once all good rule, you rarely touch! ... It's just plug and play, like a real! I asked nothing more of what the odds! So very much like the gear malgres qq negative point seen above.
PS: you have good stuff (good preamp) for making the most ... So forget the other pod or something like that!

So this is a rather large pedal, which uses the digital convolution technology to accurately simulate speaker cabinets.
The torpedo cab also offers a simulated power amp and EQ for guitar and one for bass (all disabled).
It can be used to drive simple IR (Impulse Response) if you prefer to use "footprints" found on the net. Those proposed by Two Notes are ample however ;)
It has a MIDI port, IN, one OUT, headphone jack, a USB port. Also two knobs, two switches and a push button.
Everything is editable via the small screen menus (very readable despite its size) or via USB with the Torpedo Remote software, or via MIDI (and even use some of their "i-devices" as controllers).
The quality is excellent.

The manual is well thought out and concise. Take a little time to become familiar with the operation of the machine, as well as to control the Torpedo Remote. However you soon figure out and use is really well thought out and very clear parameters. Very good ergonomics so for digital.
There are many memory locations to store presets or IR (from Two Notes or not).
IR proposed by Two Notes allow you to choose the distance and the phase of the microphone (in addition to its type as 8 are simulated), the cab of the front or back ...
I happened to be faced with some minor bugs and rare: two presets that I created is loaded after returning a second time on, if I did not have sound. This could be problematic in the context of a live use if the bug was more widespread, but it is not the case. I bet that a future update will fix this little problem.

The simulations are virtually endless because any IR speaker can be used on the device. These proposed base are absolutely excellent and very "card" via the numerous parameters.
In terms of sound quality, it's just the best record that I've had with digital technology. Currently used with AMT SS-11A, the Cab allows me to enjoy the "lights" on headphones. It sounds great with the Tech 21 also, I went with my love Leeds!
The sound reproduction always depends heavily pregnant, size, quality, etc ... With this device you can try everything, and to paraphrase a forumeur colleague: "This is an excellent vaccine against GAS". The variety of sound you can get is so great ... No need to buy a new amp soon as we got tired, or a new distortion pedal every month (well I certainly caricature).
Basically, if you want novelty, we try other IR, other investments of micro ... and is disoriented.
The record is excellent both in headphones that plugged into the sound or good speakers. The settings are subtle. The character of the instrument or preamp 'are respected ... In short, I see very well keep this material for many years.

That's kind of what I always looked for:
I mostly play with headphones for years, but I was frustrated by the reports of simulations (tech 21, line 6, zoom ...). I also wanted to have a good record when I plugged in the sound.
Here, it sounds better than ever, and the record is as good in the headphone rehearsal on the speakers, and it is a great tool to record without having to blush super sounds taken from those better equipped ;)
The versatility and quality of the tool widely excuse its price.
I'm not the type to invest as much in hardware, but having always been frustrated since I live in an apartment, tired I thought I would try to sell the roadster left thereafter.
I resell it more. And instead suddenly many things have become almost useless on my pedalboard.

This is now my main tool for playing after the guitar. I recommend, and I put the maximum rating, well deserved.

See website builder

A simple configuration, programming is a breeze.
The manual is easy and complete, more, editing can be done via a computer.

For sound quality, I think it's excellent.
I think it's great that for each parameter whose settings range from 0 to 100, there is a noticeable difference in sound for each hundredth, everything is useful and musical.
Whether in line out of an amp or pedalboard live sound setup.
I leave you to judge his skills on the demos I realized:

I use this cabinet recently, it has no real competitor as there is no similar product offering as many editing options.
The quality / price ratio is excellent given the professional results that are obtained with, in addition, a product made in France.
