Record Silently, with Total Tone Control

Two Notes' Torpedo Studio is a next-gen digital load box that updates the the company's acclaimed VB-101, giving you increased power handling, switchable impedance (4, 8, or 16 ohms), and a choice of resistive and reactive settings, in a new, sleek design that's much lighter weight than its predecessor. Use the Torpedo Studio with your guitar/bass amp head or preamp. Simply plug it in place of your speaker cabinet and you'll get all the characteristics of your amplification chain (from the guitar to the amp, including effects pedals) - silently.

SO glad I made this purchase!

I have had a love/hate relationship with direct recording amps with IR's and load boxes. I have used the Fryette Power Station and Rivera RickCrusher. Neither of them lived up to my expectations for recording. Both are great attenuators for sure. I bought the Torpedo Live and returned within days to upgrade to the Studio and MAN ALIVE! I am glad I did. Don't get me wrong, the Live was great but the added in's/outs, higher wattage handling capacity, multiple ohm handling and dual cabs on the unit were well worth the price difference. I recently did a demo of the Friedman Butterslax using the Torpedo Studio and I have achieved some of my best recorded tones to date. The Two-Notes cabs give great flexibility and it is also super easy to load in 3rd party IR's. I may be in the minority here but I even find myself preferring to use the actual hardware to create presets vs using the Remote app. On of the first pieces of gear that I have bought in the last few years that I don't feel dependent on a software editor to use competently. Feels extremely well built and so far, no issues. I flip a lot of gear but this feels like a keeper.

Everything I Hoped It Would Be

I purchased this so that I could silently record using my odd-ball collection of vintage tube amps (including a 50's military amp that sounds amazing through the TS). I have only had this less than two weeks but am more than impressed just playing around with the pre-sets! I am sure that once I spend time with the manual I will be able to create my own user pre-sets exactly as needed. While I will be using this to craft my own signature sounds, I can easily see how someone with the need to be able to dial up any sound could also fall in love with this.

I own two of these and plan to buy more, great gear. If Fractial Audio Systems comes out with a competing product I will check it out but untill then this is the gear to own!
