I explicitly said the amp should also be plugged into a load. To be clear, plugged into speaker cab, and an interface at the same time, the cab being the load. Just another way to skin a cat - the load the amp sees is perfect, and the DI signal captured can have an IR applied and the end result is really good since the load is really good. This isn't silent recording of course, but it does mean you can record great tracks without setting up mics.
