Stereo Powercab worth it? in Powercab Posted November 9, 2022 On 11/9/2022 at 12:38 PM, rwandering said: Resurfacing this a little bit, and maybe RDRK is the expert here. I am 99% home recording, not a performer. I use the Helix LT and PowerCab 112+ for writing songs (and just playing the guitar), but certainly for getting my tones right before I record. I gave up on the PowerCab speaker modelling, mostly because while I can get it to sound good, with the ultimate target a recording, the Helix cab modelling is superior. So I'm using the PC without speaker modelling. With the new Helix 3.5 cab micing capabilities, I think I'm more likely want to work in stereo (though most likely as different microphones on the same cabinet model). Now granted, I can run this through my studio monitors in stereo (and get separation there). So my question -- which likely ends up as YMMV -- any direct experience or thoughts around the utility of the PowerCab 212 for this case? Worth the upgrade from the 112+? I know nobody can answer this for me, but I'm wondering about whether I will get utility out of this, or if I'm just suffering from gear-aqcuisition syndrome. I love my PC212+. I don't really think of it in terms of recording though - when I want to do that it's Helix into PC. I love my Powercab for jamming out with friends or performing in both acoustic, electric, and vocal setups, or for practicing and just immersing myself in sonic coolness at home. It's a ludicrously versatile rig in my opinion. Worth you investing though? You're already halfway there IN A SENSE. If I was you I would probably buy another 112+ if I REALLY wanted stereo rather than the 212 because at the end of the day two 112's are more useful for stereo than one 212, especially once you've already got a 112.
