    Strange question but...

    if the device work with Wireless DMX controle, you can't isolate it or it wont communicate with the other RF device. if its just a batterie pack, you can put longer wire, the induction should not be that bad.

    Lend me your ears!

    Very close, my guess here is a Scheps plugin on the track, try a 57 mic emulation with a " Transformer " preamp in the cab block. That wil get you closer
  67. D

    Doesnt sound or feel right

    In the cab section, you have Mic Pre, they add tone and color to the final result, like in a real recording situation, the mic and mic pre are in the chain to get to recording medium. Try to know what they used on the recording of the tone you looking for and dial it on the axe.

    Need help setting up studio monitors

    Make sure you have the USB input level turn on like Chris said, also make sure you use stereo outputs not L->R. My suggestion is also to set the USB level to -3 DB. You will have enough volume, and a bit of headroom if you ever play over a song direct, without overall digital output clipping
