    Trying to play tech catch up here, so bear with me.

    The tech, in box form, exists now that will allow you to run your amp into a cab and record everything silently into your DAW, right? If so, what's the cheapest option atm?

    If you are just looking to record into your daw and don't need the sound processed in anyway then a load box is the cheapest option. Weber makes some cheap ones...Maybe the two-notes captor works too?

    If you need to also run your cab at the same time you might need a more expensive option.

    You don’t need a cab at all for recording; you’d run your head into something like a Suhr Reactive Load (with or without internal IR loading), a Two Notes Captor, or one of the new Mesa CabClone IR units.

    I've actually left my 212 at my drummer's house and at home I just run my Mesa into a Suhr Reactive Load (not the cheapest option, but it sounds great) and play through my studio monitors. I don't have to lug the cab around now, and whether I want to record or just jam, I can play through the monitors or headphones silently. I love this setup.

    The 2 notes captor is sick and about $350
