I would think the BA112 would mic up really well. That said, I've never done it, and I've never listened to one outside of the confines of a music store to REALLY hear what it sounds like. But it sure sounds like it would mic up well to me. Emulation can be great, too. But I prefer using analog signal paths at the very least. Digital, to me, is more like a low-medium bitrate MP3 of a recording of a tube amp. However, I darn sure have used digital to record and I've made some very fine recordings with it. At home. In a real studio, I'd be very hard pressed to use digital.
