It's a bummer that Roland discontinued the Micro Cube this year: it weighed about 3 kg, so you could wear it around; had a 5-inch speaker driven by 2 watts of power, fueled by 6AA batteries. I always liked most everything about it except the built-in noise gate that you can't turn off, but oh well.
My point is: I'm recording with it right now b/c yeah, I can't be bothered to set up a microphone and my real amp, so this is the sound of the Cube going direct out to my soundcard, monitored through my stereo. It's like I'm in high school. That awesome hum is my Telecaster. It's such a shitty sound that it's almost OK.
