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).

Using the VB101

The Torpedo VB-101 is made to be used with a guitar/bass amp or preamp.
Plug it in place of your regular cabinet and enjoy all the great characteristics of your audio amplification chain (from the guitar to the amp, including effects pedals) silently!

The Torpedo VB-101 can replace the whole guitar sound-recording process with some powerful simulation of the cabinet, microphone, mic preamp and studio acoustics. Choose your speaker among the 45 available, your microphone among the 8 most used studio mics and sculpt your sound with the included effects section (EQ, Exciter, Compressor).

Sound recording is done in silence and with perfect control of every critical parameter.

Applications

In the Studio

VB101 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 the Stage:

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.

Dual Miking

The new feature of the Torpedo VB-101 is what every sound engineer wants: the possibility to precisely place two microphones in front of a cabinet, or to select two different cabs and mics to mix the sound as you wish.

Remiking

In the studio, it can be very interesting to record a raw track that you can later reprocess (we call this “remiking”) at the mixing stage thanks to the Torpedo VB-101. This allows you to concentrate on the music when recording, not on the sound

Of course, you can record both processed and unprocessed signals to your DAW at the same time.

Remote

Remote Front Screen

The use of computer stations has become a must these days, that’s why we have developed an application to control the Torpedo VB-101 remotely from your Mac/PC via the USB connector on the rear panel of the Torpedo VB-101.

With its clear and intuitive interface, the Torpedo Remote software will give you access to all the VB-101 parameters, loading and saving presets, loading new IR’s and updating your VB-101. Via an enhanced graphical interface, you have access to easier management of the VB-101′s speakers and presets.
