CabTone (by Voodoo Lab/Digital Music Corp.)

Official product page: CabTone - excerpts:

The CabTone, by Digital Music Corp., is a guitar cabinet simulator for direct recording, sound reinforcement and slaving additional amps and effects. It takes line or speaker level signals and provides both balanced and unbalanced outputs. You can select between accurate simulations of fat, punchy 4x12 closed back or spacious 2x12 open back speaker cabinets. Or switch out cabinet simulation for spanky clean rhythms. Ground lift and phase invert switches are included to eliminate noise and phase cancellation. $149 list.

Guitar Player review 12/97 - excerpts:

Designed to emulate the response of a miked open-back 2x12 or a closed-back 4x12, the Cab-Tone features line-level and speaker-level inputs, plus balanced XLR and unbalanced 1/4" outs. Four push buttons allow you to bypass the emulation circuitry (for use as a direct box), select cabinet types, invert signal polarity (to correct phase cancellation), and lift the ground to reduce hum and noise. For recording or other direct applications, simply connect the output of your pedals, rack effects or amplifier speaker output to the appropriate Cab-Tone input. Note that unlike some speaker simulators, the Cab-Tone isn't a load box–you'll still have to run speakers (or appropriate resistive load) via the unit's speaker-thru jack. Comparing the Cab-Tone's line-input and "open cabinet" sound with a miked Twin Reverb (both units fed a signal from a strat hitting an old Ibanez SD-9 Sonic Distortion), the Cab-Tone displayed warm high-end qualities but couldn't quite match the Fender's top-end complexity. Mixed with other tracks, however, it was tough to hear the difference.
