Recorded is a Fender Mustang III amp using both the direct line out signal from the bus mixer in unison with a mic'd amp.
VST's can be used within any capable DAW for EQ'ing. However, having hard wired direct EQ'ing through either a bus mixer or FX loop allows for more tone shaping options that can bring out your sound and be used for gigs.
