Using Variax 600 Tone Control As A Controller And Locking The Tone

Tone locking can only be done on JTV guitars - not the earlier Variax models like the 600.

Hi Vax users,

 

I understand with JTV variaxes, it's possible to "lock" the guitar's tone within a patch on HD500, or whatever you use controlling presets for the variax, if you want to use the guitar's tone control for example to blend two amps in a dual amp patch. I have figured out how to do this, and am having some success.

Got a killer blend of Blackface Double and Class A-15 for REM's The One I Love, but my problem is this - I have the BF vol on the tone at max and the Class A vol on the tone at min, and mostly I can swing between the clean/dirty sweet spots, but when the guitar's tone drops into boxiness territory closer to min on the tone, the Class A sounds like shite.

Can I "lock" the guitar's tone on Variax 600 or can it only be done on the JTV?

 

Searching the forum has been fruitless, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

cheers!
