Using Variax 600 Tone Control As A Controller And Locking The Tonecontroller tone lock
Posted 07 August 2013 - 03:54 AM
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 lollipope.
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.

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