Hi Everyone

My Variax 700 from 2004 has been the best guitar I have ever used - Love it.

Over the years I have battled with myself over whether to update from the original firmware (1.21) to the latest


A couple of weeks ago I did it but now regret it because of a couple of reasons

1/ I don't really like the newer sounds as much as the old, especially the acoustics and the Reso sounds

2/ The whole guitar now sounds as though it has lost its attack and sustain


Does anyone else feel the same? More importantly does anyone have a solution ether by tweeking in Workbench or having gone back to 1.21


What I really want is get the 'old' Acoustic and Reso sounds back

I hope someone can help
