Micing Own Amp Through Powercab

Recommended Posts

Anybody mic'd their own amp or cab through Powercab and with what results? Silly question you might think but not really as it means you don't have to use a modeler and some people might like the idea of running their own amp in stereo. I imagine you would go through the flat setting but wouldn't want to damage anything so thought it best to ask.

 

Many Thanks,

 

Richard.

You mean mic'ing your amp and using the PC as a PA speaker?

 

Certainly doable.  The PC212 (maybe not the others) allows you to feed into input 2 as a direct monitor signal - so you can use the cab as a floor monitor basically.  That would be ideal for this scenario.

 

As for stereo, it wouldn't really be stereo.  It'd just be the almost same sound coming out the other speaker - colored by the mic used.  That's only going to give you a slight stereo image due to the varied EQ and phase differences.  Now if you put a delay or other time based affect on the mic'd signal then you're getting into real stereo territory.
