The C.A.B. M : Mini. Mighty. More.

The C.A.B. M : Mini. Mighty. More.

As the name states it, our new cab sim pedal is the heir of the Torpedo C.A.B. The latter is the first dedicated stompbox for guitar and bass which is also an IR loader. The Torpedo Technology was in its third year. It was available only in our digital load box Torpedo Live and Torpedo Studio at the time and players wanted to have the technology for a lightweight rig build around a pedalboard. This led to the design of the C.A.B made for pedalboards, to go direct to a PA. In the seven-year span, the need of silent solutions for amps and lightweight full pedalboards has grown, and guitar and bass players want complete rigs for each scenario : practicing and recording at home, playing live at shows and rehearsals. The C.A.B. M was developed thanks to our community’s feedbacks : their expectations, their needs, their wishes.

M - Mini

The first goal was to create a compact pedal. Pedalboard’s real estate is a critical element now in a player’s rig.

We managed to do so while keeping the same electronic quality, still run at 12V to provide proper dynamics and a proper headphones output. And the result gives us the C.A.B. M nearly half the size smaller than the C.A.B. . The good news is that it also works with 9v power supplies too.

M - Mighty

While the original C.A.B was a great unit, you could not use it with an amp. This is now possible with the new C.A.B. M ! Get the complete interactions of your guitar, pedals and amp sent straight to a PA or an audio interface. The pedal is not a load box, so requires the cabinet to be connected to the pedal so that the amp still has a load, but it is the best amp DI available thanks to the Torpedo technology. This led to the development of the input gain switch has been introduced on the side of the pedal, to match the levels that were coming from such a variety of sources. On social media, many asked us why it was not a load box too. Physics’ laws make it impossible to have a compact pedal that can accomodate a load box with all the crazy features of the C.A.B. M.The pedal allows to use two microphones on each virtual cabinet. Dialing a great miked sound has never been easier. The studio techniques of combining a SM57 and a U87 to have the full range of your tone is available whenever you play and wherever you play, even at your live shows. Each of our virtual cabinet comes with 8 microphones (full list of available microphones in the C.A.B. M here) leading to endless combinations of ribbon, dynamic and condenser mics, for studio-grade cab sim.

M – More

The major change in the past seven years is how now our lives are linked to mobile devices. It seemed unthinkable not to give the user the ability to control the C.A.B. M via Bluetooth. We have released the Ipad app now. The Android version is scheduled for beginning of April for tablets.

Make your pedalboard a Smart-pedalboard.

All our hardware always include TRS jack for inputs and outputs, and our users have been asking over and over again to provide for an XLR output on our future Torpedo hardware. We listened and here it is. Plus the new DSP that allows for higher resolution IRs (up to 200ms for more details in the low end part of the signal), the micro SD card to expand the memory storage of IRs and an auxiliary input to play along backing tracks.

You need one. Why?

With so many powerful tools in such a small enclosure we believe that we have delivered the best cab sim pedal ever. One that will be thrown at the back of combos amps for this precious direct sound of the full rig, one that will turn pedalboards into full rigs while keeping the analogue appeal that comes with a collection of boutique stompboxes,one that will easily fit between your tube amp head and the cabinet, one that will make practicing at home even more enticing, one that will turn writing and recording around the playing and not the settings.

    Hi, I want to connect the cab m with a torpedo captor. What is the best way or do I have to use a speaker cabinet and no loadbox is possible with cab M ?Regards Tjark

      hello. you connect the line output of the Captor to the input of the C.A.B.M and you send the signal to your mixer or audio interface via the xlr or jack output of the C.A.B. M. kind regards.

    "While the original C.A.B was a great unit, you could not use it with an amp." This quote is confusing to me, as i thought it was possible to use the original CAB with an amp.I just read this about the original C.A.B "You can choose between Line or Guitar input levels, and configure the output for use with an amp, or for running to a Line level device, such as a recording interface or live sound mixing console." is appreciated regards

      I think they mean you could not use with an amp as an input source to the original CAB. The origianl CAB could output to an amp if you wanted (CAB -> amp), even if most of us were using it for output to DI, whereas now with CAB-M you could take the source from an amp (amp -> CAB-M) although if it's a head you'd still need to connect a load (either speaker cabinet or a loadbox), but you could basically siphon off the signal coming out of the amp head and send it to DI (with the CAB-M adding a flavour to that signal to simulate the sound of using a cabinet).

    I have a Captor and intend to get a Cab, but I'm still confused regarding my signal chain : My say is that the best way to go is: Amp > Speaker in Captor / Line Out > Cab M Line Input > Audio Interface XLR Input. Am I right?

      I hadn't thought of that. I was thinking to use the Captor with the CAB M by using the amp in/spreaker out. So I send the signal from my amp directly into "Amp in" of the CAB M (using speaker cable) and then connecting the "Speaker out" to the Captor. This way the Captor is not interfering with the signal chain. Not sure if it really makes any difference from the way you describe it. Both ways might work I guess?

      You are right. this is the way to plug it.

    I don't understand why you call it a speaker-simulation pedal if you still need a speaker ? Will there be a bigger version that will include a loadbox if not I don't really see the use for that pedal? Also I would love that you answer the first question about the captor (I have one), can the two work together (c.a.b.m. and captor) and in that case do we still need a cabinet?

      Yes you can use it with a captor so you do not need a cabinet anymore.We call it a speaker simulation pedal because this is the sound it does. if you plug a pedalboard through the C.A.B. M. you get the sound of a miked speaker cabinet.we often drop the "miked" because evryone only talks about speakersim (our customers and all other brands). and to be complete, we sell virtual cabinets (again,with a collection of mics).
