Hello, man! How’s it ?
Is it an AC15/30?
I don’t think they have an emulated out or a headphone jack.
Normally people mic these king of amps with shure SM57 (other mics too, but this one Is famous.
My marshall (Dsl20cr) has an emulated out, so I can plug it directly into my interface.
And if you have any questions about home recordings, I think that @filip can help you out as much as he helped me.
I Think that he studied this…
Please Filip, correct me if I am wrong haha.
Hope this helps you, mate!!
Take care and good luck!
Vox amps are great! I had a VOX VT40+ and loved it! But eventually got myself a marshall tube to step up the game haha.

Now, plug ins are great if you want to plug your guitar directly into an audio interface.
I normally use logic pros built in amps and effects.
But there are paid ones that can get you huge sounds, like bias fx, amplitube…
They have all sorts of stuff, preamps, tons of configurations, room set ups, mics.
And you can plug your guitar pedals directly into your plug in. Sounds amazing as well!!
To short things down… plug ins are an amazing tools!
You can demo them all and see it for yourself.
Good luck my friend

    WARNING: Check the Vox site for this before you even THINK about it further – most tube amps REQUIRE a speaker load if they’re powered on, unless they were specifically designed to work without one – like if it has a headphone or emulation out. If it doesn’t have one of these, you can do serious damage to your power amp without a load (speaker attached) if Vox doesn’t say it’s okay to do so!

    I’m sorry I’m just now answering all of you back lol no it’s a Vt40+. It has a headphone jack and a aux jack too. Thats all I know about it. I could probably read on the VOX website about whether or not it’s possible. Any more info would be awesome

    Yeah! So it’s the same amp I used to have.
    I have tried using the aux and phone out to record the amp directly Trough the audio interface. But the audio quality wasn’t that good to be honest.
    Even my marshall, which has an emulated out with the tubes and stuff, does not sound that good.
    I think that the best quality is by putting a mic in front of your amp and recording it.

    Yeah, man !
    There is a good website for “free plug ins” somewhere on google (I don’t know the name by heart :/).
    There you can find a lot of free ones (not pirate, but free).
    I think that I have used the fender pro jr tweed simulator, I’m not sure…
    Then you can experiment and decide whether you want to spend 50 dollars on bias fx for example, or on amplitube.
