I am not entirely new to guitars but I took a long "break". I am looking to get back into it. When I was playing, digital was not where it is now.
From reading up on gear, it appears like I could I just pipe everything into the computer for amp modeling, effects, recording, etc. then spit it out to a set of monitors.
On paper it looks like it could be fun, space saving, and with minimal impact on sound quality depending on how crazy you want to go with modeling?
I feel like I am missing something..is there fine print or something else I am not getting? Any reason to go the amp&cabinet route?
I won't be doing anything serious. Just jamming and some recording, but I am a geek, so overspending is a given.
