I had always thought it'd be a good idea to make some sort of direct box, a sort of a speaker simulator, to where I could record direct and plug my pedals into to get my sound. I play into a clean fender super reverb, to give you a reference.
My thought would be to take a sansamp circuit and strip it down to basically the 'california' amp, 'clean' mod and one of the mic positions, maybe the classic. Basically have a blackface fender sound in a little direct injection circuit. I didn't want to go to the whole magilla to make the entire sansamp circuit, but it seems like if you just strip everything else away, this might be a manageable circuit and be useful for a lot of people.
