Big "Thumbs Up"  :D  for fixing "Ghost Notes" on altered tunings!! Any and All improvements to the general sound, stability & quality of the altered tunings would be a HUGE improvement for me. These tunings are a large part of why I was interested in the Variax in the first place, and if bad notes are bleeding through the signal, they're completely unusable. :angry:

Make it so those who prefer the sounds of 1.71 are able to use the 500 tunings of 1.82

I have a new model wish.  I haven't read all the pages to see if it was already requested.  Mandolin !

After only using the T-model the last days, my wish is for the next update: do not touch the T-model! :lol:  

I think it sounds exceptional!   :wub:

 

I'd like a mandolin model as suggested also.

Here's another request for the nylon string model.

 

I'd also like to have option to set up bass guitars in the custom banks: A Jazz bass, P-bass, 5 string, even an acoustic.

Bass guitars are an option in the GR-55 even when in guitar mode.

 

REALLY! Nylon, P-bass (5-string version), ac/el bass (actually, I might get that one from WB - haven't thought of trying it).

 

How about a "treble-bleed" feature for the volume control.  For those unfamiliar with the term, it means that as you turn down the volume on a modeled instrument, the tone does not alter.

 

Sounds good to me!

 

I have a new model wish.  I haven't read all the pages to see if it was already requested.  Mandolin !

 

That would be great! I tried modeling one in WB, but can't be done with the programmed-in limitations of only one octave tuning variation. :blink: Same goes for making a banjo model - can't tune the A up to the high G (one full step short of two octaves).

The ability to link/change presets in the HD500 directly from the JTV....flipping your pickup selector switch not only changes the guitar model, but changes to your chosen preset in the HD500, all set-up in Workbench.  

 

With some of the small stages I play on, this would be wonderful!

Fix the looper so that both Pre and Post options offer the same sound quality.

It wouldn't be too hard for Line6 to incorperate different guitars in workbench... Would it. Since your JTV can handle so many guitars and you can place them anywhere on the model knob, make a wider variety of guitars. That way if you liked the thin-line tele... Bam.... Liked the Strat with the maple neck.... Bam....A thin-line with a maple strat neck or rosewood or ebony fingerboard!!!! That would not be difficult in WB!!!! Or would it?

it only works *IF* the guitar already exists in the firmware... (and the internal storage is not infinite)

its not as simple as just adding things in the workbench software.

and they aren't about to support users customizing their firmware...

in case you haven't noticed... they have a hard enough keeping up with the firmware as is....

not that they don't do a good job... but users will always have a wide range of issues, and they are easier to address from a single known firmware.

as in fix it once... and you fix it for alot of users...

I agree that it would be very cool if Line6 could add models to the mix and a way to select which ones are loaded.  Whether it's easy or hard depends on things that only they know and we can speculate on.

Add what is removed from 1.9 (bodies & pickups-yeah additional the old strat without replacing the new) and reduce completely the lag!

If you mean lag from alt tuning, that will never happen, sorry. They can reduce it, but not completely.

Latency and Quality balance eachother out when it comes to pitch shifting technology. 

 

Now here's what I suggest: End alt tuning warble, PLEASE.

Hammer ons/Pull offs above the 12th fret are annoying and almost impossible.

Dunno if this has been said but...the sounds the Variax acoustic was capable of would be sweet ...mandolin  yaya...& I find hammering on low E - 12 string acoustic  is shifty

So, I'm not sure this has been requested before.  Please add more controls in the Workbench in order to shape the sound.  Example: a 5-10 band graphic eq on each pickup in order to boost/cut frequencies.  This and other tone shaping tools would allow us to build the equjivalent of "active' guitars and custom models that don't actually exist.  Thanks.

Pitch shifting will never be spot on, especially something pitch shifted a whole octave up. They've got it pretty close imo. You might be asking the impossible. Perhaps they can fix the tonality as much as possible, but you're never going to get the exact representation of the lower gauge strings from a pitch shifter shifting heavy gauge strings to sound a higher pitch.

 

I believe the Variax already has some timbre preserving going on in the pitch shifting stages, so there's not more they can do after that.

It would be nice though if they could get it to sound at least as good as the 12 string acoustic.

Yeah I had big hopes for the JTV and the Rick models figuring 10 years newer tech there would be substantial improvement, but the improvement was really little to none over the previous generation other than the ability to alt tune now.

That's one of the reasons why I settled on getting a Variax 600 over a new Variax, because I knew if I waited, it would take forever. If I had enough money for a JTV, I'd have to be from some type of income, and if I had that I could still get a JTV even though I got my 600.

 

The HD does make a nice difference between the JTVs and old Variaxes though. I also do find the alt tuning knob to be a big feature.
