I think almost ALL of you missed my point (or I made it in a confusing way)

Here's what I found after some research for a perfect punk pop sex pistols sound
---------------------------------
Signal ONE

Les Paul Standard
Hot cake pedal with LOUD output (Max)
Engle Savage 120 SE turned up to be distorting but not too saturated..
Vintage cab - sm 57 / neve 1073 pre & EQ / 1176 / Fatso / Cranesong Hedd
---------------------------------
Signal TWO

Engle amp head speaker out into ...

Marhshall SE100 speaker emulator / load box (set to no gain reduction, passing signal onto 4 x 12 cab) Setting "30 degrees" mic angle cab simulation

Gives AWESOME / usefull 'mid sound' signal minus all nasty 'paper tearing' buzz
----------------------------------
Signal 3

SansAmp
----------------------------------
Alternate vesion
instead of the Hot Cake pedal, we used a Digitech Valve FX get pre fed into the insert return section of the Engle (thus using the power amp section + cab only)


OK the marshall SE 100 sound is a little "Pod like" but it is damn usefull.

We used Time adjuster plug in within PT to line up the phase of all 3 signals with one sample increments and then combine them to one track. The SansAmp and MArshall speaker emulator both needed to be delayed to phase match the mic signal.

I feel a PodXT on the horizon, (I really want them to come out with an XT Pro rack mount version) And a Wah Pedal for that Slipperman EQ trick!!

So I answered my own question! Cab emulated signals from a screaming 100w head CAN rock! (when blended (phase adjusted) with mic'ed speaker cab signal)
