these are NOT coming....

 

You might miss out on the 61 SG, Maple Neck Strat, Thinline Tele, and all the other guitars added in coming versions of the firmware tho - maybe you will want to give 2.0 a try and see how you like it on person...

Whoa... Ok... so... what's the deal with the leaked thing on the French/German L6 sites? Were those guitars added at some point then removed? And why? Was it all just a cruel internet hoax/April Fools gag?

I asked, and those that know answered.

the screenshot is apparently from an early mock up of the new workbench HD, and nothing shown was modeled or exist.

You might be the only one of that opinion regarding the sounds in this video, but to each his own of course.

 

The great thing about the JTV is the old 1.9 firmware still works perfectly so anyone who prefers the old sound doesn't have to change a thing.

 

I'm still using a Variax 700 and I'm considering whether to buy a jtv or not ..

I am interested mainly in the electric guitars models, as for acoustic works I often use the real things..

 

as far as I know the 700 electric models and jtv 1.9 are almost the same.. and I'm not so interested in the added magnetic pups..

so I wonder if it would be or not a real quality jump to go for a jtv updated to fw 2.0..

 

unfortunately the guitar stores don't have jtv guitars already updated to the latest fw which I can try..

 

so probably is better if I wait some time before to take a pondered decision..

 

You might miss out on the 61 SG, Maple Neck Strat, Thinline Tele, and all the other guitars added in coming versions of the firmware tho..

 

is it true?.. where did you get those informations?

big difference!

many want the old acoustics back... and many enjoy the improved jtv ones... but one things for certain... they aren't the same!

so I wonder if it would be or not a real quality jump to go for a jtv updated to fw 2.0..

This is also my problem with V2 although I think it's due to their choice of guitars to model being different than previous versions. They seem to be choosing brighter instruments while I prefer mellower sounding ones. I have a variax 500 and 300 and those strats and 335's sound like the SAME instruments being modeled and the JTV sounds like those instruments with improvements. Ver 2 sounds like DIFFERENT instruments and I just don't like their basic tones as much in spite of the other improvements with Ver2

 



about fw 2.0, I do not like a certain resonance quite pronounced in the higher frequency spectrum

Very helpful vid, thanks. All the HD models sound closer to mag pickps to me. The old models sound digital by comparison IMO - and slightly flatter and less lively, with a softer attack. Then I saw this video though...... Listen at 1.42 when he switches between mag pickups and models. Mags sound so much better...IMO

 

 

Hey,

 

I compared the new Variax software with the old (V1.9) and made a video:

 

 

This is a great software update! All models sound way better to me.

I hear very little difference between the two to be honest. In a blind test, I think it would be very difficult to pick out which is which based on those samples.

For me, I don't notice too much difference at 1:42. At 2:08-2:16, there is significantly more treble in the HD model than the magnetics. That being said, we're comparing a Tyler guitar with Tyler magnetic pickups to a Strat model so I wouldn't necessarily expect them to sound too similar. We'd really have to compare the Strat model to the original Strat guitar to see how well Line 6 has done, or otherwise.
