Hi, I had classic Captor loadbox. It was good that can work without adapter and I can route one signal for two different speaker cabinets in DAW.
But I thought this I can have in Captor X too, but without DAW.

I bought X and after an initial investigation I ran into the following problems:

1) Captor X can't work without adapter, have not option be power supplied by phantom power as a classic Captor? I thought that yes. Now I must carry one another thing (adapter) to live gigs :( but the sound is amazing..

2) If I route output as "Dual mono" or "Stereo", I thought the output 1 will be one mic and output 2 will be second mic, for example I send to output 1 Marshall 1960 with SM57, and to output 2 i send the same cabinet, or also other cabinet with Royer 121. But If I set mic A and mic B, to both outputs sounds both mics. It will be solution if I set output as stereo? Stereo by manual information is the same signal to both sides if I understood it right.

I hope you understand my questions.
Thank you for your opinions and help.

Hello Stepansoukup!

Yes, the CaptorX requires a power supply to be powered up and to be used effectively as a reactive load box.

As for dual mono configuration, you can hard-pan the individual mics left and right to get the desired effect you're seeking. They can also be set up as two separate tracks within your DAW via the 2 XLR outs to your audio interface.

Hope this helps - it's an exceptional product and there are a tonne of amazing features offered within the unit itself as well as the accompanying software Torpedo Remote.

Let us know how you make out with it! :thumbsup:
