Re: Mic in normal room vs modellers
i'm a firm believer in micing amps, but much more falls into that equation: room, preamp, mic, positioning, speakers, cab, etc. for ease, modellers can't be beat; especially if your room sucks or you have to record in your bedroom/house with family/distractions. i prefer to use modellers on the tracking stage to get performance and reamp the DI signal later into an amp to get tones during the mix process. so i'm for both practices. your situation will dictate your choice overall.
