1. If I was to record two seperate tracks, by playing through two different amps at the same time, would this give me a true double tracked sound?

Or:

2. If I was to record two seperate tracks, using one amp with two different speaker cabs miced up, would this give me a true double tracked sound?

Or do I have no choice but to get off my lazy backside and record the same stuff a bunch of times?
I have nothing important to say

1. no
2. no

They both would give you a fuller sound but double tracking sounds different.

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

People have been trying to cheat with double tracking for years but ultimately everyone comes to the same conclusion, it doesn't work.

The reason double tracked parts sound, well, double tracked is because of timing and tuning differences between the takes. Recording the same performance twice won't give those difference. As Spambot said, it'll sound fuller, but not 'double tracked.'
