So there is a protocol for optimal training. I presume that the process is easily repeatable if we screw up the first time around.

This open possibilities to new processed sounds.
MIC>daw processing(eq/harmonic enhancer/multiband compressor) >tonedexter

Maybe ?!

Excellent use of DSP. This seems like a game changer. This and a K&K pickup and you'll be rocking.

That thing looks amazing. Not cheap, though.

Man, do your own modeling with your own guitar and your own mic of choice. This has my attention. Enough presets to cover all your instruments. Think of it as no more expensive than trying three or four different pickups searching for a realistic tone.

Yup. I could replace my whole rig with this and some A/B/Y boxes.

Wow. I'm very glad that I haven't yet sent my money in for a Grace Design Felix. This seems to be a game changer.

Where are the guys that were at NAMM when you need them? Probably taking pics of pretty girls? Lol This does look interesting.

Argh! Haha. I've just learned that the ToneDexter only works with piezo pickups. Funny. I fled piezo's 'cause I couldn't deal with the quack and now I'm thinking about going back.

The term "piezo" includes piezo soundboard pickups too. In one of the demo vids, he used ToneDexter with a soundboard pickup and it worked nicely.

Its unfortunate that the term "piezo" has become a code word for undersaddle pickups. Most soundboard pickups employ piezo material too.

DiMarzio's new Black Angel piezo pickup (available in late February, according to Larry DiMarzio) is a soundboard pickup also, but I suspect that some of the folks who see that word "piezo" are thinking that its an undersaddle pickup.

If you're looking for something to enhance your Black Angel mag's sound, the Zoom A3's modeling seems to help with that. They use mag pickups in this particular demo vid. In addition to the modeling, the A3 has a two band parametric EQ effect which could help shape your sound. Its not a continuously adjustable parametric EQ, but there are enough frequency center options and enough bandwidth options that I've found it very effective for EQing my various pickup/guitar rigs.

You're right, that does sound good. I'll look into it. Thanks!

ToneDexter works with just about all common guitar pickup technologies except magnetic and some peculiar piezo arrays that have some elements out of phase with other elements.

So yes, when I say piezo, I also mean sound board transducers like K&K. And, it works with micrphone pickups like Lyric and film type pickups such as B-Band.
