So I've got Amplitube 2, which is OK at best for preamp models, but the speaker cab models are fairly decent. Just for fun, yesterday I took the effects send (serial) and ran it into my MOTU interface. Turned off the the preamp section of amplitube, and played for a little bit. It actually sounded pretty good with the Modern 4x12 model! Here's the kicker. I left the amp in standby. I, of course, kept my speaker cab attached, even though the amp was just in standby.
This seems like a great way for me to jam and record late at night, and then go back and "re-amp" the gain through the Mod50 power section later.
Anybody got a reason why I shouldn't do this?
