The Torpedo Captor is an easy to use reactive load box to either play silently or attenuate the level of your beloved amp.
The Captor also makes recordings easier thanks to the DI output that can send your amp signal to your audio interface.
With the provided cabinets for Wall Of Sound you can then recreate the perfect cabinet and microphone combination in your DAW.
On stage, you can send your amp signal straight to the desk thanks to the speaker simulation derived from the Preamp series.
The analog speaker simulation has 2 voicing : guitar and bass.
With the 20dB attenuation you can keep your cabinet on stage and take advantage of your speaker as your monitor.

It comes with 16 virtual cabinets and 8 virtual microphones for the Wall Of Sound plugin.
