Thanks for the compliment.
I'm glad too with all the options i have. Must confess that most is thanks to my mixer board with it's very extended options which provides all kinds of instrument connections you can think off and different kinds off outs. My studio gear and all it's possibilities is build around that mixer board.

That's a style i did a while to, and still do sometimes.
I have no special amp for that like you do, but i then plug my amp into the mixer board which goes too the computer. This way i can use all amp options steared richt into the computer. Slightly different way to connect, but at the end the same workflow.
I've experienced the benefits to the sound when micing. I suggest everyone to at least try it once, to experience it, to know the options and there benefits that are there to choose. It's clear now that i prefer mic recording.
But if your on a small bedroom or small rumorous house (with neighbours) your still better off without mic recording. Nothing wrong with that.
Still record plugged in sometimes though. Lately i wanted to record a bass guitar. But i lack a bass amp. And bass over normal guitar amp can be bad for the speakers which aren't build for bass.
But not bad for it's build in amplifier. So i dodged the speaker to not blow it, and plugged in with nice quality recording of that bass guitar.
