Just updated my JTV59 through the HD Pro on Vista 64bit...Works Great....Love the new HD models....HD workbench is beautiful compared to the previous windows 98 looking software.

 

Any chance of adding custom HD models to customtone.com?

 

Thank you to everyone at Line6 that worked on this well worth the wait!

Thank you Zap!  I never got the JTV usb hub/device to correclty install on my computer or for both sides/lights to go green. It sounds like the 1/4" jack fix is the key.  I have been using the 500 as the usb interface for the JTV since I got my JTV last month.  I guess I have to get it setup or I can't use workbench anymore. (not that I did anything in workbench anyway)

 

you can use the 500, 500x, or pro (or pretty much any variax enabled pod) to update... only workbench has the issue.

You might now... workbench is much better looking and easier to use... plus you might want to build a high gain 89 model :)

Ok, now that I got that usb box to work I can connect to Workbench HD. Next problem: The usb-box does not seem to power the JTV, mags are working, variax part isn't. Seems like I have to use the battery that is currently not loaded. Hmm, maybe it's just me but having to use the usb box instead of my POD HD 500 brings nothing but problems to my "dream rig". Have to wait some hours until the battery is loaded to test the new stuff.

you're correct... usb interface does not power guitar...

and it is kind of a hassle... but all new JTV's shipped with it, and it's a better option than holding back the update until all the pods are working....

pod access will surely be added....

ALL of the guitars are "way mo betta" -- I especially like the changes to the Tele, the Les Paul, and the 335. The jury's still out about the Silver Jet -- might just be me, but it seems way darker.

To clarify... the tele was just modeled from a different model than the old models...

but yes... all of the new models sound way more dynamic... and the difference between the models is now alot more noticeable IMO

Same instruments (except for the Tele) - just modeled in a more awesome and HD way... B)

 

Sorry, no sackbuts or heckelphones...

 

So they modeled a different Tele this time? Any info on it? (Please say it is the one at around 6:35-8:32 in this vid ).

 

I see the R'Billy model is now called Jetliner and not Silver Jet, did they model a different guitar than the original for this one too?

 

Also, any info on whether the new Strat LP etc models were done with the exact guitar they used the first time around, or just one of similar make model and year?

the models should be the same except as noted below.

 

Guys im realy excited, where do i see the list of all models?

 

 

he Tele bank is not the same as in the original variax (and JTV).

 

The “Mud cap” wiring modeled in position 4 previously is no longer included.

 

The bank now uses a Tele custom (solidbody) body for all positions and the pickups for each patch are:

  1. Tele single coil bridge pickup
  2. Fender Wide Range Humbucker bridge pickup
  3. Tele Single coil bridge pickup + Tele single coil neck pickup
  4. Fender Wide Range Humbucker neck pickup
  5. Tele single coil neck pickup.

So they modeled a different Tele this time? Any info on it?

Yes, you're right. My HD experience wasn't that smooth but as you said I'm happy, too, they released the HD update and let's just hope they' fix those issues with the PODs.
