It's strange. When I'm practising in my room with my Peavey VK, I don't think it sounds as cool as my Roland Cube. Yet, when I do recordings with both and listen back, my Peavey VK beats the **** out of it, to my ears. What the hell is going on?

Could be the capture of your mic.
Could be the fact that valve amps sound better when turned up a bit.
Could be room acoustics.

Huuge list of stuff could be made, but I cant be bothered at the moment.

Try putting the VK into a bigger room, and standing away from it.. With it turned up, it most probably will sound a lot better than the cube then :-)

also try tilting the valveking backwards and wedge something under the front so it stays angled

Yeah, you'll find your sound is quite different when you're facing the speakers right at your ears. Much better usually IMO.
I always angle one of my 2X12s up so I can hear the true tone. That's why stage monitors are pointed right at you, so you hear what everyone else hears.
