Two Notes Audio Engineering has announced that the downloadable version of its new Torpedo PI-101 plug-in for Windows and Mac OS X VST and AU is now available. The RTAS version will be available in a free future update. The price is 199€ (ex VAT).
Torpedo PI-101 is a high-end channel strip plug-in for your guitar amp / preamp. It features 3 different sections: power amp with 8 different power amp topologies, "Miking" with more than 30 cabs and 8 studio-standard microphones and last but not least, Post FX featuring Low cut filter, 5-band EQ, exciter and compressor.
Of course, the PI-101 plug-in features the unique Torpedo algorithm originally found on Two Notes' VB-101 unit, that allows you to virtually move the microphone in front of the speaker cabinet (as you would in a real recording room) and to simulate the sound of a hard driven speaker.
If you already have a favorite speaker cab and microphone, you can measure them thanks to the Torpedo Capture software that will take care of all the processing and will output a TUR file for you to import into the Torpedo PI-101 to instantly find your sound without having to setup the big pile of gear.
Note that the PI-101 is also compatible with third party IR libraries.
- Power amp simulation with 4 types of tube (EL84, EL34, 6L6 an KT88) in 2 different modes (single ended or A class and push pull or AB class).
- Miking section: More than 30 guitar and bass cabs: different types of 1x10", 1x12", 2x10", 2x12", 4x12", 8x10", 1x15", etc.
