Dan Gooday from Ashdown Engineering said
‘This enables the start of things to come, working closely with Two notes on this project has opened up some very exciting opportunities that we cannot wait to share with you. But firstly, the NEW range of DynIR cabs in conjunction with the brands Torpedo products are a great step in the right direction and enables us to gauge the reaction from our core fans and Ashdown users as well as opening up the Ashdown brand to more who might never have the space or inclination to purchase a physical Ashdown product ‘
Two notes are delighted that Ashdown have chosen them to embrace this age and bring these captures to market in the Two notes DynIR format. The captures can be used with all Torpedo hardware (including the Captor X and C.A.B. M+) and the Torpedo Wall of Sound audio plug-in.
Mark Gooday – Founder of Ashdown Engineering said
‘The captures are simply beautiful and work as intended mimicking the exact responses our cabs produce with a selection of studio mics that work well with bass’
2021 will see further exciting releases from Two notes, both hardware and software, ensuring that the flexibility and tonal purity that people expect from Two notes will continue to push the boundaries of how to record and produce guitar and bass tone to the ever-changing demands of modern musicians.
