AUSTRALIAN guitar vol 68, has an article on THE SILENT STUDIO, page 56. Among other things, they mention using the Behringer V-AMP.
On our Boutique Guitar Pedals and Effects page we have a guitar amplifier dummy load and phantom powered speaker emulator to achieve the same result, using your own amplifier, and sound. A guitar amplifier's speaker is replaced by the load, then the emulator produces the cabinet sound that is DI'ed directly into a pre-amp for recording. Same approach is used by the Marshal SE100.
