    Brett did an awesome video a couple of months ago with this unit, and I met the guy at Frankfurt Messe. It's a professional load box with built in impulses, cab, microphone simulations, positioning simulations etc. You can also import your own impulses.

    I felt I had to do a little bit of explaining in the video so my voice is all over the place.

    Holy shit @ deep voice a la Mikael Akerfeldt :)

    Sick tone you got there Ola ! I'm glad the Two Notes guys and you finally met !

    By the way, what's the orange thingie around the first fret ? Is it a capo of some sort ? Or just something to mute the strings for clean recording ?

    EDIT : sick ass riffing and production also ! Just noticed you were using the H&K 412 Greenbacks / Ribbon 160 combo... I love this mic with my setup but never liked this cab for my setup (for metal at least). Funny how things work from one person/setup to another. It's all about trying a lot of combinations and just listening i guess (sometimes "odd" (Vox cab miked by Royer 121) setups will sound insane, whereas "classic" setups (Mesa Recto cab miked by SM57) won't cut it, and the other way round of course).

    Are these "impulses" and mic options the same in the torpedo plugin?

    Cool! What's the price on that? This is actually something I had envisioned on probably making myself into a product... but not a rack unit that big.. more like a pedal size version of that.

    Yes! The plugin has the same exact options. But then lacks the load box feature of course


    It's a Fretwrap. I have no idea what I have it for :D

    By the way, was this dual-tracked or quad-tracked ? (i'd say dual-tracked but who knows)

    LOL those prices are insane. I was thinking something around 300-500€. That pedal version doesn't have a power soak right? So you pay a thousand for an IR box? OMG that's just stupid...

    Well I guess when you don't have competitors you can ask what ever you want.

    A power soak with custom IRs should not cost that much. 500€ would be okay.

    This was not the price for the pedal version, read again. Pedal version is gonna be cheaper.

    NOT ! This is the price of the VB-101 dude (i think).

    The Live is 899€.

    @Ola : I guess you're gonna do a walkthrough video of some sort ? If so, looking forward to hear your tones doing it.
