Two Notes Audio Engineering Torpedo VB-101
Dbalage in the unit is robust, a neutral look, what pro! APRS a lightweight connecting a childish simplicity, it's a shock return to perfect my Mesa Dual Rectifier with the smallest rglages and the sound of my PRS. I hack five minutes and four microphones sound, the HP also. A killing my friends. Good catch our breath. No effect in the true sense of the term but a low cut filter and a compressor in good order. A software very easy to control the PC (very simple to use).
A clear connection with the same manual for beginners. All connectors are Submitted. A intgration at the publisher without audio latency problem. MODEL 2 U rackmount

I think the word configuration is a big word for this device. Simplicity efficiency. The simulation of the HP Fidler and microphones and their distances are penss. Some manual pages says a lot about the simplicity.

The compressor and filters are effective. My PC configuration is a Dell Quad Core with 4 G of RAM. A classic audio editor, a sound card motu ultralite from home and 01 V 96 VCM Yamaha. PRS guitar amp head and a Mesa Dual Rectifier. A Yes 7506 Sony headphones for Tropedo and neighbor is better.

I use it for two days, I look forward to my bass player. Yes, there is also the bassist for simulation. I would do it tomorrow without any choice problem. A report quality price decent enough. Excellent machine.

Two Notes Audio Engineering Torpedo VB-101
- What are the effects or types of effects available? : Emulation speaker + microphone jack and strip.
The goal is to get rid of his (her?) Cabinet and its fleet of pickups.
To live, just one XLR, one connects directly to the console and go!
A home is an excellent tool for rehearsal or sound research, because you can play by pushing the headset tube amp up! Inoue and amazing! For that alone, this material is worth it! Finally, you can play hard without boring person!
In home studio, you can easily make remiking, mix briefly track
- What technology is used? digital converters with high fly (192Khz)
- Are they edited? Via an editor Mac / PC? Yes edited by an editor very easy to access (compatible wine for Linux user )
Also another editor will make its appearance: the torpedo that will capture no more or less to capture and record the sound of his own cabinet!
- What is the connection? comprehensive, MIDI, USB, XLR, SPDIF ... Ethernet jack and optional.
Headphone jack on the front.
- Is this a rack or rack-mount model? 2U self ventilated

The hardware configuration is obvious, the ergonomics are well thought out, everything is done for allergic menus extension.
You can edit very easily, even without reading the manual.

The simulation is really hyper realistic, it is a joy. the sound is very clear also that the light saturated (which retains its dynamic).
The sounds do not lose life or natural. The sound, the texture of the guitar and the amp is fully respected.
Even without any notion of taking her, there is a tweak his starting presets, and eventually you realize that there is not that the SM57 in life, because it has access to a fleet of pickups impressive high-end, which many have never had the opportunity to try.

I'm using for over a month, and I rediscovered the pleasure of playing. Definitely the best buy for years, I have long hesitated because I thought the torpedo too expensive.
Finally, with respect to the purchase of a speaker, a microphone and especially the comfort that brings to torpedo the guitarist (or bassist), it has become essential.
I imagine not even buy a cabinet, or to repeat or to live in less than 40kg in my rig it's nice!
The value for money is excellent, because in view of the features embedded in the machine, if you do the simple calculation of the price of microphones and speakers that are provided virtually, we gain a lot.
For a studio, I guess not even the productivity gain generated by this type of product.
Attitudes will be hard to change, but this product is revolutionary!
The only downside is that it is and that mono to make grappling with multiple microphones simultaneously, it is much torpedo: s Anyway, both is really a very minor, especially a stereo version will be out soon!
