Two Notes Torpedo Live + PI-101 WoS
Two Notes Audio Engineering has announced the upcoming release of Torpedo Live, a 100W RMS analogue reactive loadbox combined with DSP and convolution based algorithms, designed to deliver cabinet/microphone simulations, as well as the upcoming release of an update for its Torpedo PI-101 software plug-in; the Torpedo PI-101 Wall of Sound.
Torpedo Live builds on the concept established in the VB-101, in which Two Notes’ cabinet and microphone measurement technology emulates the sound and process of miking a guitar or bass cabinet in a recording studio.
The Torpedo PI-101 Wall of Sound now makes it possible to load up to 100 channels of different cabinet/microphone combinations to create amazing recording setups, for example 2 different cabinets with 3 microphones on each. The PI-101 Wall of Sound can also be inserted on a stereo track to process each channel with the same cab/mic configuration.
Torpedo Live presents users with functionality in a 1-rack unit format, including the ability to store up to 32 Two Notes measured cabinets from the manufacturer’s growing vintage and modern collection (42 cabs are currently available). Each cab features front/back miking and adjustable mic positioning, with a choice of 8 different microphones (dynamic, ribbon, condenser). For guitarists using pre-amps such as the Marshall JMP1, Mesa Boogie Studio Preamp and Groove Tubes Trio, Torpedo Live also includes the power amp algorithms originally developed for the Torpedo VM-202, emulating 4 types of tube in A-class and AB-class formats.
Torpedo Live can be remotely controlled via USB using Two Notes’ Torpedo Remote software that has been rewritten. The unit can also store up to 512 wav/aiff compatible user IR's. When Torpedo Live is connected to a computer, files on the computer can be browsed while playing using the Torpedo Remote software’s “Quick Preview” function.
Torpedo Live is expected to be available from Q1 2012. Available for both Mac OSX and Windows in AU, VST and RTAS formats, the new Torpedo PI- 101 Wall of Sound software is due for release in December 2011 and will be a free update to existing Torpedo PI-101 users.
You can see a preview of Torpedo Live at the 131st AES Convention, New York, booth 842.
