The Torpedo Live is a professional loadbox with digital-miking features — the combination of an analog REACTIVE 100W RMS loadbox and a powerful 32-bit DSP. The Torpedo Live was directly inspired by the critically acclaimed Torpedo VB-101, the first-ever digital loadbox to have hit the market. 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. In just this one rack unit, add up to 32 speaker cabs and 8 microphones among the most used by sound engineers worldwide. If you like to play the guitar with your preamplifier, the Torpedo Live also includes some outstanding tube-amp simulations.

Two Notes Audio Engineering Torpedo Live
same as above

Overall configuration is very simple, plug the head and Torpedo live branch torpedo output on the sound card or mixer.
Then grip the device itself is quite simple, we check the input level between -6 and -12 db, it then manages the output level and it remains to choose the microphone and positioning the baffle and then pay the EQ if needed.
Via screen torpedo can edit all without too much trouble it is not a gas plant, but it is easier to setup nettemment this little baby through the Torpedo Remote software free with which the connection is made with the supplied USB cable.
Interestingly also, we can control the Torpedo Live with pedalier noon, it is sufficient to save his presets and assign a program change.

Personally, I plugged my MIDI thru G Major is flying through my midi pedal ENGL Z15.

For sound quality, well, it's still stunning, I could test it in a sound of a rehearsal room and Marshall 1960A cabinet is very realistic!
I then plug my head into a Marshall 1960A cabinet and true bah I do not really see any difference ^ ^ '.

I use this small torpedo with my head and my ENGL Invader 100 G Major II, and I plug in my head a ESP Horizon III and Ibanez RG1527Z.

For the parameters of the presets, I do not really have a preference for speakers, I use speaker simulation is different depending on the settings on my amp and my G Major II.
In large distortion I tend to use the speaker Marshall Marshall 1960A or signing slash for my lead channel I use a baffle and ENGL for clear sound I use a vintage roland a vox or a mesa boogie.
I tested the others who were very nice but not suitable for the sound I wanted to give my group.

In any case, the sound quality is the appointment, by this my sound creation possibilities have multiplied!
If you have a rack config, all controlled by noon you can enjoy the live torpedo all live in home studio.

I use it for 4 months, I have not tried equivalent before and I have no complaints about this product.

I was looking at the base of the gear for me in home-studio recording and I had echoes of musician friends on quality of live torpedo.
I did not even test the machine before I bought it when I had the money and then I realized that Two Notes had released an excellent product for a price not too high (900 €) not very bulky (1 rack unit) and used in home studio and for live.
So for sure I would do that with experience this choice, apparently are not too equivalents or equivalents are a notch below.

One thing to say the skeptics, go for it!

Two Notes Audio Engineering Torpedo Live
Loadbox reactive 100W RMS speaker simulator (32) and microphones (8) with the possibility of mic placement (only 1 pair speaker / microphone pqr preset) can add up to 512 IR, amp simulation power (4 lamp types), EQ per preset, line outputs, digital and headphone amplifier inputs, line MIDI. 1U, solid, white pearl is a little beautiful.

Only regret: not being able to have multiple speakers and mic preset must be the big brother VB-101 for this.

For a more complete description, what better than the manufacturer's website? http://www.two-notes.com/materiel/torpedo-live/

The use of Live is childish. Editing presets is clear (a button to select the parameter to edit one) and there are free software Torpedo Remote for editing via his favorite computer (USB connection). Live configuration is of the same ilk, not rocket science, and mainly communication via MIDI.

In short, we do not take the head with Live, we focus on the many opportunities speaker settings, pickups and EQ.

I would have appreciated the quick access buttons for PowerAMP simulation, speaker, microphone and EQ for even better ergonomics, but it is in no way binding.

Live the fan emits a small sound that is quickly covered on the other hand I hear my amp in Loadbox. Strange, but a priori normal.

The point that interests everyone ... and we are not disappointed. The end result is quite interesting. I will not dwell on the Loadbox difficult to assess the qualities or defects due to lack of references.

On the speakers and microphones, it's very good, especially compared to what is done in Redwirez, although they are in the top of IRs for guitarists. A comparative A / B between the speaker Mesa Boogie Live at Redwirez and confirmed this.

Being able to place the microphone where you want is a huge advantage against the conventional IRs and to better refine its settings for better rendering.

Note that the parallel digital output sends the processed signal and the output signal gross Loadbox to play with its favorite DAW.

I use Live with a head Diezel Hagen to play with headphones at night. This is certainly the worst use of Live, in the sense that the output signal corresponds to an amp transplanted, not an amp in the room. It's great to play on a backtrack is less than ideal level sensations to play alone. But this is valid for all devices of this kind, it is not proper to Live. In addition to the EQ allows you to get closer to a sound "in the room." It's just something to know for those who want to use this way.

My default setting is now pregnant with a Diezel micro Royer R121 and a slight EQ to reduce low.

Offering Two Notes is unique on the market, no one else offers as complete a product. In case of trouble I will turn to perhaps the VB-101 to simulate two speakers in parallel.

Note that it is possible to discuss with the designers of the machine on several forums with AF, they are listening for requests and it is VERY nice.

The overall score is the average of the other notes.
