 To create a lightweight rig with a pedalboard, place the Torpedo C.A.B. M on your pedalboard knowing that the best results are achieved by placing it before the time-based and modulation effects (chorus, delay, reverb…), which then become brighter and clearer. This position also allows to take advantage of the possible stereo of these effects. This is similar to the way things are done in the studio, where modulations are often applied to guitar and bass tracks after recording. To create a lightweight rig with a pedalboard, place the Torpedo C.A.B.

-To use the Torpedo C.A.B. M as an amp DI, place it after the power amp section of your amp by connecting the speaker output of the your amp to the Amp Input of the C.A.B. M , and connecting your cabinet to the Speaker Output of the pedal. (DISCLAIMER:​ The Torpedo C.A.B. M is not a loadbox).  Using the C.A.B.

 The Torpedo C.A.B. M can also be used after a loadbox connected to your amplifier in place of the speaker cabinet (such as the [[https://​www.two-notes.com/​torpedo-captor|Torpedo Captor]]). Simply connect the line output of the loadbox to the Line Input of the C.A.B. M. This will provide a silent playing rig, where you can take fully advantage of your amplifier'​s tone, without having to deal with sound level issues. The Torpedo C.A.B.
