    I understand that cabinet stimulation in processors is used to emulate the sound of different speakers cabinet(correct me if i am wrong)

    My question is,
    Is it necessary to use cabinet modeling on stage, isn't the sound of the speaker cabinets on the stage good enough?

    Its simulation not stimulation.

    its not necessary to use.
    What sounds good to you - you should use that.

    Generally, if ur plugging direct to the mixer/PA, u use the cab sim.
    If u are going through an amp, u switch off the cab sim.

    The cab sims on most low end procs suck, so plugging in direct results in shitty tone.

    Well its true.
    Low end processors actually sound much better when cab sim is disabled.
    Whether going into amp or goign direct. :p:

    Usually on stage here line-out from the amp is given to the mixer, so i am guessing there will be no effect of the cabinet on the sound...

    try not to use the lineout on venues. Try to get the amps miced.
