For noodling/practicing/composing/enjoying (not for recording) I like the "amp in the room sound" far more than a closed miked sound. But I am very restricted regarding volume, so I simply cannot run my amps through my cab. Not even at ultra-low volumes and even a 1-watter could be too loud. Now I want to create an IR that mimics that "amp in the room sound", so that I get a similar feel and sound when running my amps through a Palmer PDI-03's line out into my DAW, applying that IR and listening through headphones. What mics should I use? My SM57 would surely not do, but I have a U87 which is more likely to work. Are flat-response mics even better (think Behringer ECM8000)? Should I do stereo (I have two ears...)? Without any trying, I'd say two flat-response mics placed at ear level should get close to capture what I am hearing. Has anybody any tipps or experiences to share?
