Los Angeles, CA (February 8, 2012) – Two Notes Audio Engineering has announced the upcoming release of Torpedo C.A.B., a new stomp-box providing cabinet simulation to any guitar rig based on a pedalboard.

Torpedo C.A.B. has all the great features of Torpedo Live in a pedal format with an input stage specifically designed to work with guitar and line levels. Guitarists creating their sounds from stomp-boxes won't ever need to carry an amp on stage anymore : Torpedo C.A.B. will provide power amp simulation as well as cabinet + microphone simulation, powered by Two Notes' exclusive Torpedo technology. This technology accurately emulates the sound and process of miking a guitar or bass cabinet in a professional recording studio, including free microphone placement into the virtual recording room thanks to the Torpedo IR synthesis.

Torpedo C.A.B. will be loaded with 32 Two Notes' measured cabs, each featuring 8 studiostandard microphones. 512 user impulse responses slots will be available, that can be filled with 3rd party IR files or with your own IR measurement files (free Torpedo Capture software available on Two Notes' website).

Torpedo C.A.B. will be available in April 2012

Can an entry-level modeler hang with the big dogs?

Excellent interface. Very portable. Nice modulation tones.

Some subpar low-gain dirt sounds. Could be a little more rugged.

The allure of portability and sonic consistency has become too much to ignore for some guitarists, making smaller digital modelers more appealing than ever.

"'If I fall and somehow my career ends on that particular day, then so be it," Joe Bonamassa says of his new hobby, bicycling. "If it's over, it's over. You've got to enjoy your life."

For his stylistically diverse new album, the fiery guitar hero steps back from his gear obsession and focuses on a deep pool of influences and styles.

Twenty years ago, Joe Bonamassa was a struggling musician living in New York City. He survived on a diet of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and ramen noodles that he procured from the corner bodega at Columbus Avenue and 83rd Street. Like many dreamers waiting for their day in the sun, Joe also played "Win for Life" every week. It was, in his words, "literally my ticket out of this hideous business." While the lottery tickets never brought in the millions, Joe's smokin' guitar playing on a quartet of albums from 2002 to 2006—So, It's Like That, Blues Deluxe, Had to Cry Today, and You & Me—did get the win, transforming Joe into a guitar megastar.
