Going into regular amp using helix amp or preamp WITHOUT cabinet or IRs


Experimenting because I feel like there's already a real speaker in this scenario and an emulated one can make it sound muddied or 2nd generation.  The sound feels more present just using real speaker, not modeled.  I do like some of the qualities that come with the cabinet, eliminating some harshness produced by an amp on its own. 


Appreciate any musings on EQ or FX that would be nice after the Helix amp and before the real amp.

I've been playing with eq and compressors


I'm going into a Roland KC-550 and KC-500 stereo, and a Egnater Tweaker through a Carvin 212.

Straight in on the Rolands.  On the Tweaker still playing with input vs effects return.
