Guitar/Bass DI for your head amplifier.
The Torpedo VB-101 is a DI for your head amplifier composed of 3 main parts: a 150W RMS Loadbox to play silently with your amp or preamp, a speaker & miking simulator powered by the acclaimed Torpedo technology with all your favorite cabs inside and a Post-FX section with all the processing effects you usually need when miking a guitar cab (low-cut filter, 5-band EQ, exciter, compressor).
In the studio
In a home / project studio, where the cabins are not necessarily suitable for miking guitars (and the resulting high volume), the Torpedo allows engineers to achieve sound recording silently with no compromise with regards to sound quality.
For studios already equipped for miking guitar (cabins, microphones), it offers an alternative to the regular sound recording process and can also be used as an addition to provide a wider range of possibilities at the mixing stage.
Another common use in a studio environment is when you need to record a whole band in live conditions. The Torpedo VB-101 then allows you to completely isolate the sound from the bass guitar and other instruments without necessarily having a dedicated cabin.
On stage, the Torpedo VB-101 will be a big asset for the comfort of the musicians and the public. Find your own sound every night, gig after gig, do not be dependent on the bad microphone or the one not necessarily very well placed, etc. The sound recording is not “polluted” by other instruments, making the FOH and personal monitor mixes much easier to do and more comfortable for the musicians.
