Oh sick!!! They have two Florida dealer's
Thank you !
Feel free to send some DI (guitar, bass) if you want me to feed it through my setup.
Unfornately I only own a JMP-1 for the moment (and a ENGL Blackmore which is for sale, and no cab anymore to take the load), I can't wait to buy a new tube head to use it with the PI-101 !
Just curious TRUIE, how would you use the head in conjunction with the plugin?
To take the load, one 8 ohms PA out into this (can work also with any loadbox) : http://www.tube-town.net/ttstore/product_info.php/info/p3964_Tube-Town-Tone-Hound-8-Ohm---100-W.html
And another PA out into my Avalon U5 Speaker In > Mic Pre > Converter > DAW > then the plugin will handle all the cab / miking duty
so you're going speaker out with each? I can do this with a loadbox and my countryman correct?
round 2 of the Torpedo Free test.. this time through my 5150
Schecter Hellraiser 7>5150>Countryman DI ran in between head and speaker>Profire>Torpedo Pi-Free

Yeah, I even think you can do this :
Speaker Out > Countryman > Thru to Loadbox
______________________ > Output to DAW
You just have to check if the Countryman will handle enough power.
I'll listen to your clip in a few minutes
EDIT : ok my bad, that's exactly the chain you used on your last clip, with a cab instead of a loadbox
Your sample is not bad at all !
Maybe it could sound a bit more "open" (less mids and a bit more gain).
Can you upload the dry recording of the 5150 out ?
So that I'll send it through the Mesa Cab + SM57, if you want to hear how it sounds !!
It's so weird about the mids as I had them set to 2 hahaha, and even scooped them further in the guitar buss, and the gain was set to 5. I'll upload them here in a minute though
Did you disabled the power amp section on the PI-Free ?
Or maybe it's just me and the shitty headphones I used at work
Will try my best with the raw amp sound
Would love to hear some Pantera-ish riffing from the "Vulgar Display Of Power" era, or some Dying Fetus with that tone !
EDIT : i think it has enough gain (but maybe it could use a tad more presence ?), and mids are fine.
The 412 Marshall in the PI-FREE is definitely V30-loaded, but in the full version (PI-101 WOS or the Torpedo series (VB-101, VM-202, Live, C.A.B)) they also have a 2x12 Marshall loaded with G12T75s.
Still waiting for a 4x12 with G12T75s, should come soon i hope.
Can other impulses be loaded into the Two Notes Torpedo or plugins?
don't think so, but from the sounds of it so far, I have no need for other impulses
and you can do your own impulses with the Torpedo Capture software (that comes with all the VB-101 and such)
Gave it a shot (starting with my favourite setup : engl 412 V30 cab / Blue Dragonfly Condenser Mic, close-miked, center) :
There was this weird rumble in the low end (disappearing a lot when moving the mic very close to the grille or very far away, and as closer to the centre as possible), so i set the low cut pretty high (130hz i think).
Otherwise no EQ besides a 5k-ish boost and a HiCut in my DAW.
Left the Load Compensation on in the Torpedo VB-101 btw (not sure if i was supposed to leave it, but it didn't sound better without it so i left it on (i use it with my own head)).
Torpedo Settings :
Gonna try it some other cab/mic setups and also see if the low-end rumble problem is still there. Weird.
Just to be sure... was your head plugged to a cab or a dummy load when you did this ?
I wanna know if i'm supposed to use the load compensation function or not, that's why.
EDIT : nevermind... totally skipped the "in between head and speaker" part...
that low end rumble is a ground frequency, I used x-noise to remove it. I need to get it fixed, the ground on the plug broke so I need a new power chord installed, but it sounds good!
Then i guess i was supposed to put x-noise in the DI guitar track before sending the signal to the Torpedo, right ?
Any good way/plugin to do this in Reaper ?
Also... isn't the Countryman capable of getting rid of that rumble (with a switch of some sort maybe ?) ?
