Two Notes Torpedo PI-101

The Torpedo PI-101 and PI-FREE plug-ins feature the unique Torpedo algorithm originally found on the VB-101 and VM-202 units, that allows the user to virtually move the microphone in front of the speaker cabinet (as you would in a real recording room) and to simulate the sound of a hard driven speaker.

Torpedo PI-101 is a hi end channel strip plug-in for your guitar amp / preamp. It features three different sections: power amp with 8 different power amp topologies, “Miking” with more than 30 cabs and 8 studio-standard microphones and last but not least, Post FX featuring Low cut filter, 5-band EQ, exciter and compressor.

Torpedo PI-FREE is based on the flagship model, the PI-101, but only features 1 model of power amp simulation (EL34 / AB class), 1 speaker cab (based on a Marshall 4×12) and 1 type of microphone (based on a Shure SM57). And you still have the full Post FX section.

Torpedo PI-101 will be available to purchase for 199 EUR excl. VAT early February, 2011 (requires iLok USB key to authorize). Torpedo PI-FREE is free to use, is not time limited and does not need an iLok USB key.
