    "problem"

    I'm the same. I have a Kemper and a bunch of plugins that I don't use often, because I have my amp heads on a shelf 5 feet away from my desk. Why use my Savage 120 sim when I have the real deal right there? I don't use my heads live so they get worked out in home jamming and recording. The only time I use plugins is for scratch tones during tracking. No point in tracking a head just to throw out the tracks and do it all over again.
    C'mon son.

    How big of a difference do they sound from each other?

    I was using my mark iv through a captor but I'm honestly getting better tones using my diezel vh4 pedal into my atomic amplifire as a power amp sim and ir loader

    I dunno, I use my 6505MH for scratch tracks, even. Why not?

    This.

    Once you've eliminated the need to mic up a cab and keep that mic in the exact same spot all the time, it's so much easier to swap out heads and compare them and have that same cab tone 100% identical each time (if desired). Makes for really quick and easy A/Bing, which makes for terrible, terrible GAS.

    Have yet to do a scientific 1:1 comparison yet, but just going off of vibes, they sound really similar. I'd say maybe the actual amp is a bit brighter and tighter, but if you're looking for the Savage tone the sim is really good.

    My recording setup these days is Axe-FX III, while capturing DI's in case I want to change something later. I also have it routed to a Carvin power amp and my Zilla Fatboy 2x12 for when I want to play through a cab. I think I'd like to get something like a Torpedo someday so I can easily play through my Road King, but honestly, I can get pretty damn close to my RK tone with the Axe.

    Just watched/listened to all the vids in here and came away with a giant "meh"... Always loved the dual recto tones, but this doesn't sound like it holds a candle to it's older brother. Even Ola, who gets great tones out of just about anything, doesn't get it to "inspiring" for me.
