Two Notes's Torpedo VB-101 -- a state-of-the-art DI made of 3 main parts: a 150W RMS loadbox to enjoy the sound of your head amp or preamp even when playing "in silence," outstanding speaker & miking simulator powered by the acclaimed Torpedo technology with all your favorite cabs inside, and a Post-FX section with the processing effects you need when miking a guitar cab. 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. Dual Miking option: position at will two different mics before the same cabinet, or before two different cabs for optimal mixing options. The Torpedo VB-101 can be entirely controlled via MIDI, and comes with Torpedo Remote software.

Two Notes Audio Engineering Torpedo VB-101
AC is used to replace your cabinet (there is an 8 Ohm load dconnectable or not) and microphone and preamp (and limit the converter of your sound card) the sound

it is the ideal thing for people who like the ease of POD but wants the character of the old (or new) amp LAmpe..le leilleur of 2 worlds will tell us

pan Guitar> Amp head lamp> torpedo (need your cabinet if you wish)> SPDIF or AES your sound card even low-end
(The advantage is that the torpedo converto excellent)

short very complete and professional connectors ..

it even has a compression style processing tools, effective stro..tres effect ..

the system is a very pushed convolution technology, in short it is too technical for moi..mais technology and simulationdepasse very widely convolutions classiquesutilisablent a PC.

The use is a breeze ... it's clear, friendly, baffles and micro their investment is very visual ..
again we can control the Rack via USB and end up with a very readable graphical interface on the PC ..

Variphi the parameter is very important..a paufiner to each mic placement ..

AWhen this is that if rgale,
used with headphones (AKG 171) .. I never took much fun playing and recording ..

ca respects the wheat from the choosing speakers / microphone allows to have a much more tense panel ..

al era despite the very good material mic / preamp / converter ... any sound recording made me spend a lot of time .. the weather was counted and the simple ided a stop in the middle of recording frustrated me ..dropoff window
Now I connect, I takes 10min chiadant background .. j ... saves the lendemin hop..mme parameters recorded and we have a homogeneous sound in the continuity of the previous day ..

Brief we focus on the music rather than on taking his technique ..

plus you listening in real time the sound "finished" so ca allows to settle his amp, gain, presence idalement..en more micro placement, choice of micro .. faudrai to do the same thing Classical Recording add 3 or 4 ing to each his assignment ..

It's simple it is the centerpiece of my studio room ..
finally sound jacks (head) ..
j gets a folly of his palier..mme without disturbing my neighbor with great gear with room'd never get anything as pro !!

plus I do today has only a JCM800 baffle 4X G12-65,
with topedo I have pltor baffles V30, PE50, c90, and even the greenback ..

in addition it has a soft to record the parameters of my real wood cabinet tree vintage ... so I can put my old JCM800 Lead speaker Vintage 1981 limps ... and to share with others User torpedo ... and vice versa .... Genial !!

Two notes namely that offers us a new speaker each month .. it's like when we like to pay ca grave every month !!

short, very cheap compar has the tool sum available

How long have you use it?

1 year

Have you tried many other models before buying it?


What thing do you like most and least?

Played quietly but why a simple amp simulator would do as well

How would you rate the quality / price?

Bad, over time I find it expensive for what it is

With experience, you do again this choice?

Not at all, I just sell it half price and with difficulty. Frankly I never managed to get better than placing microphones in front of a speaker ... For me it lacks life, warmth, and it sounds a bit flat.

Hi ;)

Today, we can make taken at any time.
There are more than 60 types of guitar and bass cabinets together
4 types of lamp mounting push + pull
8 microphones
Guitar & Bass Eq, Comp, Exiter ...
Control via USB interface
Loadbox updated with up to 150 watts.

Digital technology
Any kind of inputs and outputs (see product)

The manual is sufficient.

Config takes some time for the grip.
Different settings inter act with each other, rendering the desired application oriented thinking soundman. (Not insurmountable)

Control interface via USB (Edition) easy, memorable (100 bank) + 50 users
Opportunity to improve all with the following plugg suitable to open in multiple instances in the Daw.

The simuls firms are impressive, and updated regularly.
Recently we got pregnant at 16 Guitar & Bass Quality ..

The instrument through this machine wins of the body, it sings!
it is essential to play it, listen to and perform more especially taken to understand!
Rendering, it is the ears ...

The Torpedo VB101 is a formidable weapon of war, French ADDITION: 8)
I have taken the plunge this summer appointment taken OROSYS (Manufacturer) for a demo.

After testing the machine during an afternoon complete with some of my stuff away, I soon discovered rendering, and the most was going to bring me this product in terms of ergonomics.

The leader of the company is very responsive to users, the service is responsive.

Today, more problems taken any time.
There are more than 60 types of firms, to the account and Roro Kilo ...
4 types of lamp mounting push + pull
8 microphones
Eq, Comp, Exciter ...
Control via USB interface

I took the total plugg Bundle compatible with the possibility to rework this time in stereo speakers (Super)

To say that I had a strong a priori on the digital competition after testing, we have a guitarist play, a touch, an organic fiber, so difficult to feel with "virtual"
The game with a red bean, another blue, all FX pedals simultaneously, soft VSTI ...
Ultimately, there is not much in the pick.

The Kempler, not tried it, but it is said that the demo is made from a transplanted in the machine, or between the amp and simultaneously transplanted no great difference!
Listen to the sound coming directly from the amplifier, and then cloning into the single Kempler
The verdict?
Friendly Notice!

Other simulators HP means ...
There at least rendering is preserved to the maximum, and the sound is solid.

- Cons: I'm looking for ...
+ Advantages: everything!
Investment is important, of course, but in terms of how to put in work to get the report ...

To the accounts of the devices used
Nothing a good speaker and a good microphone,
I do not even speak the surrounding acoustic treatment!

PS: No profit, no endorsement for OROSYS ;)

Two Notes Audio Engineering Torpedo VB-101
need more amps, bafles, microphone for recording a guitar or bass, everything is there.
Finally, you can:
- Or use the amp and plug it directly into the torpedo, then we choose the model of speaker you want (many models, 1 or 2 models are available in most every 2 months I think), then the model of micro 8 total that is positioned as you want + many parameters settings to sculpt the sound.
- Either plug your guitar directly into the line
since this update I no longer use my amp
I plug + guitar pedal compressor, chorus, compressor + torpedo + Lexicon MX400 (as I come out in stereo) and the sound card fireface800 of rm.

studio use
yes everything is clear and simple and detailed manual in FRENCH downloadable online.
the Torpedo Remote is the software that manages the VB101 his pc, tuning, backup ... etc, everything is done from the software if you do not want to do direct VB101


I tried many config for recording a guitar and the torpedo is what he does best (in my opinion) for 20 years I play and it is FRENCH
you can even play live if the guy has a baffle, everything is planned.
fender strat and JP6

from the start of its output

excellent price / quality

Team two notes is the onions with us Song (y'en and little, are found mostly on the remote which is updated regularly, so it is normal, but the bugs are light and n ' preclude its use) and a solution is found on a new or updated since before the team score two answer to all the problems on his forum (hat).

I would buy the same eyes closed if mine had me drop.
I even bought the plug in the bass is also excellent
and it is FRENCH éhhéhééhéhéhéhéh
