Shaped exactly like their very successful C.A.B. M+, the Two-notes Opus takes things a little farther by offering amp simulation on top of DI/cab simulation capabilities, and an Impulse Response system that lets you recreate any real-life cabinet or combo amp you can put your hands on.
Opus lets you sculpt your tone with 4 separate tube models (6L6, EL34, EL84 and KT88) in PushPull / AB class, or Single Ended A class configurations.
But it does a lot more than that, in particular thanks to the Torpedo Remote app, which allows you to edit any parameter in the OPUS architecture and also access extra features – here’s a screenshot of the app, just to give you an idea of the sheer number of parameters:
Needless to say, the OPUS can be used also without app by using the two knobs to navigate the menu on the LED screen, without achieving the same level of fine-tuning.
The preamp emulation section represents most of what’s new about this pedal compared to the CAB M+. Here is the list of emulations provided:
- Foundry: “California Clean” tone based on Fender amps
- Peggy: Mostly for bass players, modeled after Ampeg amps
- Albion: Marshall-style tone!
- Foxy: voiced after the immortal VOX AC amplifiers
- NiftyFifty: A high-gain option for heavier guitarists
After this preamp section, the signal reaches the DynIR Engine, which offers very realistic power amplifier, cabinet and mic emulations inherited from the Torpedo family of products.
MIDI connectivity, and XLR and headphones out round out the features, expanding the unit’s use.
