  1. Since I live in Canada I went with suppliers in Canada to save on shipping, customs, etc. I got the kit from Solo music gear. I change the nut to a Graphtech tusk nut and Tone Emporium 59 pickups. I could not get the pickups that came with the kit to be balanced volume wise to each other. But in any case the Tone Emporium ones were such a great upgrade in sound that it was a blessing in disguise. I like the black hardware. It complements the figured splatted maple well. I don't think they have this same kit with black hardware anymore. And maybe the new kits pickups are better than what I got in my kit 4 years ago. As @Starship Krupa, I used TruOil for the finish. I first filled the pores of the mahogany and applied many coats of TruOil. I actually went through the small bottle completely. The finish is great. I never thought it would be that easy to get such a great finish. I did a decal for the headstock and it stays in place underneath the TruOil. Most important: although I do have an old strat, an Ibanez and e few other guitars, I also still love to play and record with this guitar. I don't have an original Les Paul, so this one fills that void.
  2. I am glad I didn't reach genius status on this test. It would have discredited the test completely! 😬
  3. Yes, it works for me now too. But now since I have tried it, I think it would be nice if it would compensate for gain increase from the plugin. For example, with the curve for my Beyerdynamic DT 900 X, there is a boost at around 4k of 3.7db. When you have a mix with mastering or loudness plugins that bring the level to near 0db, the 3.7db from the plugin is quite enough to drive the level into the red. Other plugin that do calibration have a reduced levels exactly for that. I have sent my sugestion to Hornet.
  4. I believe so, yes. Sonarworks has a plugin version for your DAW but it also has a system wide version that will correct all audio on the system. From their web page: Ehen I installed SoundID for headphones it created a start menu item to start the app which then resides in the task bar tray:
  5. I gave all the info to Hornet support and offered help if I can be of any assistance.
  6. Still no UI for me... Can't test it. πŸ™
  7. And don't forget Craig Anderton's The Huge Book of Cakewalk by BandLab Tips
  8. The new version does no show any UI under Cakewalk for me. The VST window for the plugin is blank, no UI. Does it work for anybody else under Cakewalk?
  9. Anybody know if it works with the free version of Kontakt?
  10. Ha! And you give him credit for that when we all know he subliminaly implanted that idea in the developer's mind? πŸ€”
  11. Yep, you're right. And we know they can do better since it is saved in Amplitube. Hopefully they will add this ability in a future version of ToneX. 🀞
  12. What if the news is of a new version and I bought the old just a few days earlier? Honestly, the fact that it ends just prior to a big annoucement is kinda holding me back honestly. I wonder if I'll be disapointed to have jumped in and realized I should have waited...
  13. I thought this was a good in-depth on the difference between a monitor and a TV. The text smoothing part of the video is the most interesting and can have some effect for a DAW. Not much maybe, but still worth considering. He also goes into what settings to change on the TV for optimal results, a step not to skip if you get a TV for your DAW.
