    NGDejaVu: Captii

    Behold! Captii!



    I love the one I have hanging off of my 2:90, so I grabbed a second one for this:



    These are great.

    The pure 20db of attenuation is perfect. I've had a few hot plates in the past and I like the Captor quite a bit more.

    Good endorsement when someone buys a second one of something.

    Moving into a townhouse, I may need to grab one of these. But, first, I have to figure out how to soothe my GAS for that baked blue Jackson...

    I had a chance to try out their Captor X recently and was absolutely blown away by it. As a straight up load/attenuator with DI, these are unbeatable.

    Yeah I kind of wish I'd held out for the x as opposed to the captor 8 and cab m combo but either way, these are up there in the best things I've bought for guitar along with my axe fx 2.

    Totally boosts enjoyment of playing in the house.

    No experience with the regular one, but the Captor X is awesome. I assume they’re pretty similar, just the built in effects stuff on the X. These things are a great size, and solid too.

    Yeah the regular justvhas one built in ir for guitar and bass or you can disable it and use an external ir loader, you can actuslly route it into an axe fx and just load up the ir on there but I got the two notes cab m thinking their dynamic irs would be better, I was wrong <img src="https://www.metalguitarist.org/forum/images/smilies/laugh.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Laugh" class="inlineimg" />

    Do you use it just for the attenuator, or are you using the analog speaker sim, too? I've been looking for a loadbox + speaker sim so I can play silently at home, but so far the cheapest I was aware of were $800+ for the Mesa ones.

    I don't think I looked too closely at these because of the analog speaker sim. I don't know much about this stuff at all, but a lot of amps these days come with an analog simulated out, and I haven't read great things about those, so I just assumed this was a similar story. I'm not looking for a ton of cab options, so if this sounds good, I'll be all over it.

    99% just the attenuator. It's nice having all the other stuff just in case but I have like 12 different DIs now and it's just easier to use the modelers for it. if I didn't have all the other crap I'd have gone for the (~twice as expensive, iirc) Captor X. I paid less for these than I would for a used THD, and I think that the more the merrier (within reason, obviously) when it comes to attenuating a tube amp.

    The nicest part of the one I just got is that I can now run my Mark V at night in 90W mode without waking my kids up.
