I am waiting patiently for Pod support for WB.  I will pull the trigger on a 500X as soon as I can use it to connect to WB.  Since this is the newest Pod and it supports the JTV in many ways I would expect that Line6 would put some effort into getting drivers out that support this.  It can't be that hard to do if the JTV USB interface is already doing it.

no idea why its taking so long....

but the pod connectivity is not considered a bug... a limitation... but not a bug.

i have asked, but have no information to offer.

Pod support - which we all want - isn't a bug but a lack of a feature.

So much for Santa.  With my luck the the new execs from Yamaha will come in and sack the poor lonely little code monkey that's been working day and night to get us back the functionality that we lost with the 2.0 "Upgrade". :(

 

But maybe Yamaha will add development resources to help with this, and maybe not release half baked upgrades before completion in the future.

 

I love my JTV and my HD500 but I can't help but feel a bit uneasy in depending on this technology long term the way it is being managed by the manufacturer. Especially when I've spent enough money on Line6 gear to have easily bought a killer conventional rig that would work as it is supposed to, even though on a smaller and simpler scale. For me one of the major selling points of the Variax/Pod arrangement is the ability to sit at your PC/MAC with HD Edit Open Next to Workbench so you get a real time sonic representation of the changes you make in Workbench, through the exact amp model you're going to be playing it through, while staying in the digital realm, and without having to unplug, plug, tweak, unplug, plug, test drive, unplug, plug, tweak, unplug, plug, test drive, etc., etc., etc.. I don't care if you could eventually dial in the tone of the gods, who the hell could get motivated to go through that crap.

 

I understand that this isn't a bug, but a limitation. I don't understand why it is taking soooo loooong to get functionality back that we always had before, all the way back to my first Variax700 and Pod XTL.  This always worked before!  It is obvious that Line6 knew what paths needed to be traveled.  After 4+ months since 2.0 was released, I'm beginning to wonder if they didn't develop them selves into a corner, and maybe the current hardware leaves them no workaround. If this isn't the case, why are we still stuck?

 

Just Sayin'!

Should not be a Hardware problem.  Pod can talk to the PC just fine.  It's a driver problem linking the pod to the new Workbench. (From what I have read here)

I agree. All the more reason why we shouldn't still be waiting. Giving the benefit of doubt would mean it must be something beyond just a driver, and not just that they aren't putting reasonable emphasis on resolving this issue.

I suspect it's the Workbench HD software rather than the driver but I really don't know. In any case I agree that it is taking too long. I find myself using Workbench HD less, or not at all, because of the extra connection requirement.

Since Workbench talks fine to the JTV with the USB dongle it should be able to talk through the Pod USB so the hardware connections are there.  I am surprised that we are still waiting for this because it should not be that big an issue.  The old workbench worked through pods so they know how to do it.  It may be a project priority issue but that is just speculation on my part.

If Line 6 only considers this a limitation then that indicates to me there is a chance it won't happen.  If they have decided that HD Workbench connectivity will not happen then let me know.  If they're still working on it, great.  But if they've stopped and won't be implementing it, it would at least be courteous to let me know so.

So glad to see that Line6 can get the development finished up on their new AMPLIFi, and redo their website, while we're still waiting for a WorkbenchHD connection through our HD500s. I guess hooking new customers is more important than maintaining relationships with the old customers.

 

If you potential AMPLIFi customers are wondering when the Android app will be available, and you hear that it will happen "eventually" or even "soon", please don't hold your breath!
