Wish I'd thought of that...

Wait, I did!

I submitted that idea to http://line6.ideascale.com/ last week... quick, everybody go there and upvote it to oblivion!

Ha, no worries, great minds think alike :D and I don't know if others posted the idea before me but it is a good one IMO

Very clever idea. Something only a hex-pickup guitar with pitch-shifting and external control could do. (and kudos to johnyy for thinking of it too). Love it.

Yeah, but after 10 days on Ideascale it only has 3 upvotes ... INCLUDING MINE! :(

 

Not a popular idea, it seems the tribe has spoken.

 

Guess I will get busy hacking up the body of my JTV to add a real B Bender :o

 

The REAL clever idea is ideascale itself - why pay a bunch of guys big bucks to sit around and think of new product ideas and improvements and focus group-ing everything to death, when you can save time money and energy by letting people on the internet dream up future innovations for you! Smart indeed...

Well, I don't know how many people use ideascale. I went to have a look and they require me to register yet another username. I already have one with Line 6 but no, another registration is required just so I can look at/submit ideas. That was the end of my committment to this idea.

 

Maybe an idea would be that ideascale didn't need a new username. I must submit that at ideascale. But wait, that would require a new username.....

What's the big deal about creating another account? Just use the same username you use here if you want.

I already have way too many accounts. Each one is open to misremembering/hacking/email spam, so I try not to register unless I have to.

 

An extension of your train of thought is why not make it that every different page that I visit at Line 6 requires its own registration?

 

Here's another question: What's wrong with my existing LINE 6 account working on other Line 6 websites? That's a question for Line 6 I suppose.

It's not a Line 6 website. Ideascale is a different company altogether that Line 6 is subcontracting for this.

Well, I don't know how many people use ideascale

 

I am going to say at least 147 (the current number of upvotes for the most popular Line 6 product idea, "add some more metal amps to the Pod HD series").

 

The current top idea for JTV is "add a nylon string model" with 93 votes.

 

I understand the hesitancy regarding opening yet another online account and I think it would be better if this kind of thing were part of the Line 6 site, but I accept it for what it is and must forge ahead.

 

No one there liked my idea of being able to control the amount of trem spring rattle in the Spank models and string rattle/resonance in the R-billy models, but I did notice the spring sound has been tamed in the 2.0 Spank models and I am quite happy with the improvement.

Well from my perspective, Line 6 is the contact point. If they want suggestions from me on Line 6 products, I don't expect to register with a 3rd party company.

 

All I can say is it has stopped me from visiting or contributing to their research. I don't know how many others like me have been stopped by this, possibly no-one. But in my case, it has prevented me voting on or suggesting anything.

Thanks.  I ordered one from Sweetwater when I got the guitar and they are on back-order with no ETA.  I couldn't find another online store that carried it.


I just bought one from the Line 6 store.

Back in the Pod XT days I had (still do) a Vetta.  The Vetta's FX loop was post amp and there were two input options but only one could be used at a time (Variax or Guitar).  I submitted a suggestion on the boards at the time, that the FX loop be put before the amps and give the Vetta the ability to use both the Variax and Guitar inputs at the same time with the ability to route either one to either amp path (Vetta had dual amp ability).  Since it had the dual amp/stereo output ability, you could essentially have two separate mono rigs going using the Variax and the Guitar inputs at the same time.  And you could even use your own stompboxes in the FX loop and ,utilizing the dual amp option, actually have two different stomp box paths for each Guitar using the FX loop.  Well the next thing out was the X3 with both of my suggestions (upgraded a bit) in it.  Was it from me and my suggestions or did they come up with it themselves?  My ego likes to think so.  Anyway, it's just to show that I don't think suggestions on this forum go unnoticed

Hello Line 6ers,

 

We want you to know that we’re changing how we provide you support.

Previously, our forums were used as the mechanism to ask the Line 6 tech support staff and the community at large a question. The forums are still a good place to find advice about tone, computer configuration, and subjective questions about sound and application from other Line 6 users. The way to ask our tech support staff a direct question now is via a support ticket.

 

To create a support ticket, please go to http://Line6.com/support and select 'Contact Technical Support'.  To see your ticket, click My Account, then click Support Tickets.

 

Before asking us a direct question, we ask that you please look at our Knowledge Base, video tutorials, forums and manuals, as the answer you are looking for is probably already there. Additionally, a search made in our forums may show that your question has previously been asked and answered.

Marking a post as a question tells the community that you’re looking for help. Doing so also gives other members the incentive to answer it for points you can award them for helpful and correct answers.

 

Best regards,

 

Line 6 Support

Yes I've seen that, and a policy like that was in place when I made those suggestions.  And it may be enforced more strictly than it was back then........but I bet they still take a peek every now and then. :D   And let me say, it's still better and more efficient to go through the official channels........bit I STILL bet they take a peek every now and then. :D
