Power amp Modelling: On or Off?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm using the Powercab with AX8. In general should I leave the power amp modelling on in the modeller or or turn it off?

The Powercab itself does have power amp therefore I'm confused.

 

Please help and thanks.

Leave it on.

The soldi state power section of the powercab (or any other FRFR cab, PA speaker o studio monitor) is basically transparent and is there to make what you send in louder.

 

What you want to hear is the full amp model amplified.

 

Of course feel free to experiment.

With the powercab, your modeler's poweramp model should always on.

 

What will change depending your use case is on/off of the cabinet.  If the powercab is in full FRFR mode, then keep cabinet modeling on.  If your powercab is set for speaker modeling, then turn cabinet modeling off.

 

*Edit: Keep in mind, you can do whatever you like to achieve a tone that you like.  Above is a general statement.
