Positive Grid Spark AMP – 3 Month Review, Most Used Features, and Recording

Video initially posted on YouTube by Jason Little on the 2020-09-04

I’ve had the Spark Amp for 3 months, here’s what features I use the most and a few examples of recording with it via USB and Mic’ing it with an SM 57.

All recording example sections have raw and processed sounds. I used input processing for all recording running the Spark USB and SM57 signals through an NLS channel and stock logic compressor.
