Two Notes Torpedo Captor 8 Compact Load Box Amp DI, 8 Ohm Overview

The Two Notes Torpedo Captor is the little brother of the award-winning Torpedo Reload. Captor is an easy to use reactive Load-box perfect for unleashing your favorite tube amp in a variety of modern applications and venues. If you just require attenuation from your amp to your cab, Captor has you covered. And if you want an easy and modern way to record your tube amp, Captor is simply "load" and record...

The concept: You love the sound of your amplifier pushed right to the magic sweet spot where the best tones are. Until now, the only available option was blasting your sound through a 4×12-inch to properly excite a microphone. Enter Torpedo, the simplest and most realistic way to get your sound to your audience. Use the amp you love!

Everything that makes a real amp rule over all the other alternatives is retained.  You can even record silently late at night. Gone is the backache from the loadout, complaints from neighbours, venue staff or even bandmates and the frustration of not being able to sound at one’s best trying to reduce the volume.

Torpedo Captor was designed to cover the needs of direct recording or miking any kind of guitar or bass amp, in a live or studio situation.

Reactive loadbox: Playing silently or at low volumes is often a requirement, especially at home but more and more on stage or in the studio. To play your amp without a cabinet you need a Loadbox. Two notes is known for the most accurate and feature rich Loadboxes in the world, using the reactive technology, in other words mimicking perfectly the impedance of a speaker. Your amp will absolutely believe it’s connected to a real cabinet.

Analog speakersim: When using the Captor on stage to feed a PA, you will need to polish the sound coming from your amp. The analog speaker sim is derived from the acclaimed Le Preamp series. You will be able to get a detailed and focused sound for your monitor or the front of house while keeping a low volume on stage. Add a Torpedo C.A.B. with its large collection of IR Cab Sims for the ultimate direct solution.

Format and versions: The Captor is the size of a large DI box, so you can conveniently place it on your pedalboard or on top of your amp. The Captor comes in 4, 8 or 16 Ohm versions (see product options), make sure to get the one that matches with your amp.

Attenuator: If you wish to keep a cabinet on stage, the Captor features a direct speaker THRU or ATT output. It allows for full volume or a fixed – 20dB attenuation. Keep your amp in its sweet spot while at manageable volumes.

Have only used once so far but have already done some tracking with it... The built in amp sim is up to scratch for DI and the line takes the raw amp output which can be matched to a cab sim in Wall of Sound after recording... Noise levels bearable about the same as Boss TAE on that front.... A good budget solution if you don't need all the bells and whistles (complexity) of the Captor X.

Works well as an attenuator with my cabs. Not yet tried as a load box to record to Logic, so unable to comment on how good these are for this use. Also, not yet tried in a live situation, to send line outs to the desk as opposed to mic'ing up my cabs. Only criticism is that there is no control to adjust the level of attenuation, which is fixed at -20dB. I am using 4 of these for 2 stereo amps running 4 cabs.
