Two notes Audio Engineering are celebrating their 15th anniversary with the release of the Torpedo Captor X SE, a limited edition version of their popular dummy load and speaker simulator unit that sports a vintage-inspired finish. As well as coming pre-loaded with 32 DynIR virtual cabinet models, those who register the device will also gain access to an additional 10 cabinets from the company’s Anniversary Edition Cabinet Collection, along with a selection of presets created by guitarist Pete Thorne.
The Captor X SE offers all of the functionality of the standard version, acting as a reactive load box with a built-in attenuator that allows guitarists to drive their valve-based amps harder whilst keeping the overall volume under control. It also features simulated line-level and headphone outputs, making it possible to silence the amp completely and take advantage of the company’s DynIR cabinet simulation technology for recording or practice use — or feeding a PA system from a ‘silent stage’ setup. There are also a range of onboard DSP effects for fine-tuning the results, too.
We put the original Torpedo Captor X through its paces in the August 2020 issue of SOS, take a look at the in-depth review to find out more.
The Torpedo Captor X SE can be paired with a phone, tablet or computer, allowing it to be controlled via Two notes’ Torpedo Remote software application, which provides quick and easy access to 128 preset slots, as well as allowing six of them to be assigned to a physical control on the device’s front panel. It also offers in-depth control over all of the editable parameters within the DSP-based processing.
