Frequently Asked Questions
Can I mismatch the impedance of the Torpedo Captor X and my amp / speaker?
It is generally accepted that a small mismatch is not a problem if you play the amp at a low level, but this isn’t a general rule.
WARNING Before mismatching impedances – please read this article.
Can I use an amp more powerful than the rated power of the Torpedo Captor X?
The published ratings of amplifiers do not follow a uniform pattern. For example, some tube amps (mostly vintage or from vintage inspiration), can output more power than advertised.
If your amplifier outputs more than 100W RMS, discover how to protect your amp when using a Torpedo Captor with this detailed article.
What is a load-box / attenuator?
A load-box/attenuator provides a dummy load to run a tube amp at a reduced level or silently (in place of a speaker cabinet).
To discover more about load-boxes and attenuators and what they do, and more importantly how they protect your amp, find out more in this article.
Torpedo Remote? What’s it for?
Torpedo remote is a software application designed to make controlling your Torpedo device as easy as possible, to find out how to get started with Torpedo Remote.
For more information about how to use Torpedo Remote with your Captor X, please read this article.
Why should I register my Captor X?
When first opening Captor X via Torpedo Remote, You are asked if you would like to register the product with Two notes. When the Captor X is registered to your account, you are given 3 extra cabinets for free! The Calif C90, Rand RD112 and the Romanum2.
Is it standalone? Do I need a computer?
You can use the Torpedo Captor X standalone, but some of the editing (including charging cabinets within the library) will require USB connection to Torpedo Remote. Most of the finer tweaking can be performed via the Torpedo Wireless Remote app via a phone/tablet.
Can I use it with a preamp?
The Captor X requires a high level of input to operate such as the output of a power amp. Without a high level of input, you could damage the device.
Can I connect it to an FRFR speaker?
From the XLR outputs only. The Captor X speaker out has been designed for regular guitar/bass cabinet use.
Can I use the outputs simultaneously? (headphones, XLR and speaker outputs)
All outputs work simultaneously and independently. For example, you can play your amp and use the attenuator (through the speaker output), while sending the full torpedo processed signal of your amp to your DAW (through the XLR outputs).
