Two notes Audio Engineering announce the Torpedo Captor X at Winter NAMM 2020 (Hall D, Booth 5647).

Torpedo Captor X is a premium compact reactive load box, tube amp attenuator, miked cab simulator, IR loader and stereo expander for home, live and studio use.
Torpedo Captor X allows you to go directly to the PA and audio interface with studio-grade cabinet simulations using Two notes Virtual Cabinets and 3rd party IRs. It is also a portable solution to your amp being too loud; you can play your tube amp at its sweet spot and control your volume with the attenuator, anywhere. You can even enjoy your 100 watt rig in silence with an immersive headphone experience.

Torpedo Captor X brings new features to the Torpedo Captor family including a Stereo Expander (Stereo Reverb and Twin Tracker), Enhancer, Voicing, Noise Gate and XLR DI outputs with 3 routing options (Stereo, Dual Mono and Dry / Wet). Two notes offer a legendary backline of speaker cabinets and microphones and you can pair Torpedo Captor X with your phone, tablet, computer or MIDI controller for effortless control.

Very cool product!

But...I wonder, as a Torpedo Live owner, where do the difference lie now if you want to use them as a stand-alone attenuator/loadbox/IR-loader?

I'd recon the Captor X adds the TwinTracker stuff as well as being able to be configured from one's phone, whereas the Live would typically still need to be connected to a PC for ease of editing of patches, right?

Am I missing something or would the Captor be able to cannibalize on the Live, aside from those needing S/PDIF output or the 19" format? I can imagine that the Tube Power amp emulator isn't the biggest selling point of the Live to begin with.

Interesting.
I have the Captor 8 ohms and really didn't like as a loadbox. Could not get a decent tone, even with IR loaded.

Is it my impression, or the Captor X only have 8 ohms option?

My big question is: Does it sounds better than previous version?

Hello Del Rei.

The load box of the Torpedo Captor X is designed for 8 ohms amps.

The load box is the same as the Captor, but the attenuation has a new step which brings the level down by 38 dB.

I liked the video you made with your Friedman going into the Torpedo Captor 8, and the comparison between the sound with and without the Captor on your youtube channel.

If the impedance curve would have been changed to the one used in the Suhr Reactive Load I would buy this thing immediately...

Just curious if you're going off that people say it's better or if you know more about it and like that actual speaker impedance curve better?
