I got a Orange Micro Terror for Christmas and was wondering if I could just plug it in and play it through the headphone jack without plugging it into a cabinet. And if so, could I run the headphone out into my computer and do some low-qual recording?
I read somewhere that turning a head on without running it into a cab can melt its insides or whatever. Is that just with pure tube amps (micro terror is a tube base and solid-state power amp)? Does it apply more to higher-wattage amps (micro terror's only a 20-watt)? Or would I risk melting my new toy?
I checked the user manual for the device, but got sort of mixed answers.
Thoughts?

It's got a SS power amp. You'll be fine.

I'd plug it in anyway, just to make sure

Cathbard is right, it is a SS power amp, they are not picky like a tube power section is.

Not without using a proper interface to connect to your computer. And then you'd probably be better off with amp sims.

For recording info, go to the Recordings forum & read the stickies.

If you just want to play with recording using the equipment you have though, use the USB out on the Mustang listed in your sig.

It's a headphones out, the line in on whatever sound card will do for "some low qual recordings".
You'll still need some editing though TS - cab sim and mixing.

Though yeah TS, if you want to make nice sounding recordings on the cheap you want a nice audio interface and amp sims.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.
