Thanks for commenting. I'm glad you enjoyed the review.
To answer some of your questions, (this is where the guitar geekness begins
The sound is a mix of the amps lineout, going into my DAW with an EQ, used to just touch it in a nice way, take out any harshness in the high, and boom at the lows etc. And then also my Cameras mic as a room cam. (now thinking about it, the room cam seems to of overcome the mix).
I think they used an XLR line out instead of a Jack one, is because its a balanced cable, so i guess it could decrease possible noise from earth issues and such, but it seems to work great, and it's a nice little feature.
Also i was swapping to different pickup positions throughout the video, to demonstrate different tones and what not. The pickups themselves are just the stock ones that came in it. It's a 99' Indonesia Squier Strat, and the pickups just have a beautiful quirky sound.
thanks for the history on the Sponge Feature, i didn't know that. Much appreciated
thanks for watching
