Two Notes
Le Crunch

DUAL-CHANNEL MIDI TUBE PREAMP PEDAL

Le Crunch kombiniert die besten Klänge der klassischen British Stack Amps, die seit Ende der 60er Jahre den Rock'n'Roll definiert haben.

Die saubere, kehlige Stimme von Kanal A ist ein reiner Plexi-Himmel, während der Klang von Kanal B Dir "let there be rock" entgegenschreit. Der Hot-Fusion-Modus wechselt in den High-Gain-Bereich, wo Shredder und heruntergestimmte Riffs die Spielregeln bestimmen.

DIE GESCHICHTE

Von dem Moment an, als Two Notes den Torpedo C.A.B. auf den Markt gebracht haben, glaubten sie, dass es möglich sei, ein hochwertiges Pedalboard zu bauen, das ein konventionelles Röhrenverstärkersystem vollständig ersetzen würde: das komplette Floor-Rig. 

Selbst bei einer fast unbegrenzten Auswahl an verfügbaren Gitarreneffekten empfanden es die Entwickler von Two Notes immer als Herausforderung, einen sehr guten Vorverstärker in einem Pedalformat zu finden. Aus diesem Grund ist Two notes stolz darauf, seine Linie von Röhrenvorverstärkern zu präsentieren: Le CleanLe CrunchLe Lead und Le Bass

DAS KONZEPT

Die Auswahl eines Vorverstärkers ist der Kernpunkt Deines Gesamtklangs und erfordert daher grösste Aufmerksamkeit. Wenn Du ein komplettes Floor-Rigg aufbaust, wird nur das Allerbeste den Unterschied ausmachen. Die Two-Notes-Vorverstärker sind ein True High Voltage Design, das intern mit 200 Volt betrieben wird, um die Interaktion zwischen Dir und Deiner Gitarre zu bewahren und gleichzeitig perfekt mit Deinen anderen Effekt-Pedalen zusammenzuarbeiten. Jede der vier verschiedenen Versionen liefert die einzigartige Röhrenwärme, Dynamik und die musikalische Kompression von den Verstärkern, die wir kennen und lieben, in einem komfortableren Pedal-Paket. Und natürlich kannst Du sie auch als ausgeklügelte Röhren-Overdrive vor Deinem Lieblingsverstärker einsetzen!

TWO CHANNELS PLUS FUSION MODE

The A and B channels are totally independent, each with their own voicing and eq section: Bass and Treble on A, Bass, Mid with Mid Sweep and Treble for B. On Channel A you will find a lower gain tube stage with a pre-gain EQ using a more vintage design approach, while Channel B offers more gain and a very powerful post-EQ (with mid sweep). The exclusive Fusion modes open new horizons.

Cold Fusion
In “Cold Fusion”, the two channels are in parallel, meaning you can blend the cleaner sound from A and your more distorted sound in B to gain clarity and articulation.

Hot Fusion
In “Hot Fusion”, A and B are cascaded, meaning A can be used as a boost for B with both A and B EQ’s available to shape the result.

SWITCHING & MULTI-CHANNEL MODE

Each preamp features 2 channel footswitches, A and B. Simultaneously pressing A and B will ac- tivate the Fusion mode. Pressing A, B or A and B will also send a specific Midi Program Change command, that can be used to select a preset on your Midi multi effects and/or Torpedo C.A.B.. In addition, the preamplifier may respond to a Program Change sent from another Midi device al- lowing a seamless integration into any pedalboard switching system. Combining several Two notes preamps on your pedalboard makes things really interesting.

Connected via Midi, each preamp will listen to the others. They can be configured in Multi-channel mode: pressing A on preamp 1 will by- pass preamp 2, like the channels of an amplifier. Alternately, when this mode is off: traditional on/off switching for all preamps, a preamp can be a boost/overdrive for the one that follows.

HIGH-QUALITY ELECTRONIC DESIGN

Two notes is first and foremost a team of music lovers who are all great admirers of musicians. We are highly qualified engineers, technicians, and musicians, whose purpose is to facilitate the life of guitar and bass players without infringing on their playing habits. Our mission consists in providing them with studio-grade products that are specifically designed for the guitar and bass.

INTEGRATED SPEAKER SIMULATION

This analog speaker simulation is specifically voiced for your Le Preamp Model, and based on our Torpedo simulator. This speaker simulation affects the DI output and the Headphones output.

Connections

Le Preamp can be used in various configurations: as a traditional preamplifier, it can be connected to a power amplifier and cabinet, or in the Return input (or Power Amp In) of a guitar or bass amplifier. Placed before an amplifier, it acts as a boost, overdrive or distortion pedal. Alone or with the Torpedo C.A.B., it can also be an autonomous system, light and small, ready to be directly connected to a mixing board on stage as well as in the studio. By simply plugging your headphones, you can play silently. Connect it to your sound interface for perfect recordings using Wall of Sound.

MIDI
5 basic functions can be accessed through MIDI Program Changes (PC) sent by an external MIDI device :
  • Canal A
  • Canal B
  • Cold Fusion
  • Hot Fusion
  • Bypass

In other words, your Le Preamp can receive a MIDI PC asking for bypass or channel switch. Any MIDI message received will be transmitted to the MIDI output (MIDI Thru function). When using Le Preamp as a MIDI controller, you will be able to send a MIDI PC to trigger preset changes on another MIDI device, such as a Torpedo C.A.B. or an FX unit.
