The Torpedo Captor is an easy-to-use reactive load box, perfect for unleashing your favorite tube amp in a variety of modern applications and venues. Designed to be placed between your amp head and speaker cabinet, it acts as a power attenuator and cabinet simulator, and is packed in a DI-sized enclosure. Featuring a complete set of connections as well as the Two Notes Wall Of Sound plug-in software, which gives you 16 virtual cabinets to choose from, the Torpedo Captor allows you to easily use your amp at full potential at home, in the studio, or live.

The Torpedo Captor allows to capture a rich sound for direct recording without having to mic your speaker. Used without a speaker, it allows to use your amp head in silent mode without any risk. If you wish to keep using a cabinet, the Torpedo Captor features a direct speaker THRU or ATT output which sends either the full volume of the amp to the cabinet or a fixed -20dB attenuation. It also offers a balanced XLR active DI output with selectable guitar or bass simulation taken from the Le Preamp series of preamps, as well as a balanced line output with adjustable output level and polarity switch. It has an admissible power of 100 Watts RMS and is available in 3 models of 4, 8, and 16 Ohms to match any amp.
