Not only does this impressive box let you hook your amp directly into your PA or recording rig, the Torpedo Live provides over 50 extremely realistic guitar and bass cabinet emulations to give your tone the depth and dimension it needs. The Torpedo Live's extremely realistic emulation comes as the result of advanced impulse-response-based modeling, which lets you totally tweak your tone.

Reactive load box circuitry sits between your amplifier head and your PA or recording rig

The Two Notes Torpedo Live cabinet emulator features a special, all-analog reactive 100W (RMS) load box, allowing you to safely plug the 8-ohm speaker output of your guitar or bass amplifier directly into it, preserving the tone of your entire amplifier, while allowing you to run direct to and line-level gear. That's extremely useful if your band is switching to an in-ear system and you want to cut down on stage volume, without sacrificing your tone. It also makes the Torpedo Live awesome for recording in any less-than-ideal space. And with 24-bit/96kHz S/PDIF output onboard, the Torpedo Live is perfectly ready to interface with your DAW or digital mixing console.

One of the best purchases I have made

Believe the hype. This thing will sound like your amp is playing through your cab, but at as low of a volume as you would like. It's just such a great thing for a home studio. Really is the best purchase I have made, besides maybe the robot vacuum cleaner. The only down side is that it has turned me into an amp collector. :)

Perfect for Apartment Dwellers

I recently moved to an apartment where I couldn't crank anything due to cranky neighbors living over me. So I picked up this loadbox and needless to say I was greatly impressed. I have always been a fan of real amp tone, VSTs have never done it for me, and while pedals are good at sounding like pedals nothing will replace a real amp for me. I have a Jet City JCA5012C that I plug into this, and the tones I get are incredible. I can really dial in that 'sweet spot' and record it effectively and easily reproducable from storing the Cab/Mic/etc settings. Its a home-recorder's panacea for those who like to get their tone from valve amplifiers like I do.

Better than advertised!!!!!

I have a home studio, don't have the luxury of cranking up my Marshall 100 watt to record guitars the way I want. I did a lot of research on cab simulators, decided this Torpedo Live Loadbox would be exactly what I needed to maintain my guitar tone when recording. I had to wait awhile before it finally was in Sweetwater's stock. After a couple of months I got the call, received it after a few days. Hooked it up, downloaded from audio engineering's site the torpedo remote, dialed in a killer tone rather quickly and about an hour and a half later I was up and running! Whether you're using the remote or the front of the load box, it's very easy to navigate, with massive amounts of different cabs to choose from, and a great mic selection as well. Lot's of possibilities for usage outside of recording (live onstage sans cabinet, even sans amp, DI into the house board), but that's not why I bought this. Money well spent, you won't be disappointed, and your wife, kids, girlfriend, neighbors, will love you forever!!!!!

Best gear purchase I have ever made!!

Like most people who have considered the Two Notes Torpedo live the real draw back has been the price. It took me two months to finally just decide to purchase this. After talking to TJ and him telling me that I would not be disappointed I placed my order. Right out of the box this thing was super easy to use. Within 5 minutes I was recording. The sonic possibilities with this unit are incredible. I have no need for any of my studio cabs, isolation cabs, and other instrument mics anymore. If you are a studio engineer or a musician who has volume problems in a home setting then this unit is for you. This is the best piece of gear that I have ever purchased.

High Gain Monster's Little Helper

I am using this for recording. This thing really took me by surprise. I knew it was gonna be good, but I just had no idea how many different tones you can get with it. I was thinking of buying a profiling amp, but now that I have this there really is no need to. If you like heavy high gain tones for recording, you won't be disappointed with it. Put any high gain amp in front of it and you will find a tone. You will make a tone. I can't speak about the software because I don't think I will ever use that, they made it so easy to make your own profiles directly through the interface it seems almost effortless. You can even emulate different tube sets. If you love your power amps for the raw sound, this thing is a must. It will give your head seemingly countless tone shaping options, and even if you want bass tones that sound cleaner than a pharmaceutical lab, you can do that too. The headphone jack is fantastic for just jamming late at night. Overall, this thing kills it.

Sweetwater Advice

Bret Miller

As a professional studio owner, I don't always have the luxury of cranking up my tube amp. The Two Notes Torpedo Live has become my all-in-one solution to that problem. And as most engineers know, during a multi-day session microphones can mysteriously move overnight. Fortunately, the Torpedo Live took this variable out of the equation giving me consistent reliability without comprising my sound. It has also found its way into my live rig. Once I found my sound, it has been consistent from show to show. I just hand the front of house my line out and I'm ready to rock!
