Errors handling

"Directory Data not found"

The "Data" folder has been deleted, renamed or moved from the Torpedo Remote software folder. Check the presence of the "Data" folder in this folder.

On PC, the default path to this folder is "C:\Program Files\Two Notes Audio Engineering\Torpedo Remote".

On Mac, the default path to this folder is "/Application/Two Notes/".

If not present, create a ew folder called "Data". If present, check that the Torpedo Remote software you launched is really the one nearby this "Data" folder (PC : "Torpedo Remote.exe" ; Mac : "Torpedo Remote.app").

In case of multiple installations or bad software manipulation, several versions of the "Torpedo Remote.exe" / "Torpedo Remote.app" software can be present on your computer. If there is doubt, uninstall the software, delete the copies of and shortcuts to "Torpedo Remote.exe" / "Torpedo Remote.app" files, and reinstall the software.
