Setting up

Wall of Sound is a plugin and to run it you would need a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) – something like Reaper, Cubase, Protools, Logic, Studio One etc). To get started, download the correct format foro your OS and the DAW you used at the wall of sound product page. You will “insert” the plug-in on the track you wish to add cabinet simulation to.

Once inserted and opened, you are prompted to log-in. If your computer is connected to the internet, use the email address and password of your Two notes account, and click on sign in. If your computer is offline, read this article for the offline log-in procedure.

No Two notes account? Input the email address you wish to use and click on Sign Up. Follow the all the steps to create your account.

Once logged in, your license will be automatically downloaded, and you will be taken to the plugin.

Navigating around

Wall of Sound is built around 2 environments: “Arcade” and “Simulation”.

To switch from one to the other, click on the desired button labelled ARCADE or SIMULATION located under the preset bar at the top left of the plugin.

By default, 2 cab sim channels are loaded.

Simulation mode for powerful cab sim

In simulation mode, the channel you are working on is circled in red. Changing parameters will affect this channel.

Each channel contains the options to use power amp, a cabinet, a microphone, mic placement, an EQ, an exciter, a compressor and a reverb. It also has a dedicated volume level and pan control.

The miking section, in the middle of the plugin, handles the cabinet and its miking.

Select a cabinet by clicking on the drop-down menu located below the small image of the cabinet. You can use the search bar to look for a cabinet. You have filter buttons underneath the search bar to filter the results by instrument types (Guitar/Bass) and if the cabinet is located in your computer, or online in the Two notes Store.

Each cabinet comes with a dedicated list of 8 microphones. Use the drop-down menu below the mic image to select one. Move the mic using your mouse by clicking on the mic featured in the room. Or use the distance and center knobs to place your mic.

Turn a section (power amp, EQ, comp, etc) on or off by clicking on the name-button. You can add up to 20 channels of cab sim. Click on the ADD button next to the Volume level of the channel to add an additional pair.

User presets

The top left section of the plugin is for Presets. Use the drop-down menu to change and load presets. Click on the SAVE button to save your preset.

By default, the preset folder is set to:

  • “Program Files/Two Notes Audio Engineering/Presets” for Windows
  • “/Library/Application Support/Two Notes Audio Engineering/Presets” for macOS

Go to “MENU->Select a preset directory” (top right of the plug-in window) to change to your dedicated preset folder.

      Hey – you do, when you own ANY of our DynIR virtual cabs, you get an unlocked version of WoS v4 for as long as you own those cabs (this amps comes with 10 DynIR cabs) – you can control the Software inside the amp with Torpedo Remote as well!

    Hi I just got my CAB M+ yesterday and the main reason is because I want to use my pedals and record my sound with My DAW (Studio one) do I need a preamp pedal for this? Like I said I’m still new with the device lol
    I connected the pedals to the Toledo CABM+ and the Toledo to the interface using a MiC cable , is this correct or what is the best way to use it with a DAW I don’t want to use my amp since the sound is ok but not great plus I’m down for the short cuts!
    My pedals are connected in a loop for clean and distortion, Wah pedal and then I have the effects as Chorus,delay, reverb etc
    I just read in the manual for Wall of sounds that a preamp is needed but I thought the torpedo works as one of them?

    • Jason Wilding says:

      When the CAB M first came out, it didn’t have a preamp within it, so the literature at the time stated you have to run a pre-amp before it for best results. Since the firmware has been updated, it’s not as important… some still do it, some don’t. But it’s not essential once the firmware has been updated to the Torpedo CAB M+ version! (you can update the CAB M to this for free)

    This thing is awesome!!!!! The interface seems a bit complicated to me. I was wondering how can I select presets with purchased IRCabs only? 🙂

  3. David Ams says:

    The torpedo Cab M+ has a preamp available. However, the wall of sound does not appear to have a preamp. If using the wall of sound instead of the Cab M+ do I need to use an external pramp then?

      Currently, yes. However.. the new Genome suite will have everything you need in it, and a lot of thing you don’t think you need but really do 😎
