I think I found a bug when using the Spank pickups : each time I store a model using two of those pickups in the "quack" position, one of them is shut down - it appears "on" in workbench, but is actually off. See for yourself :

 

 

Maybe it's the source of the issue some users, including me, have with 2.0 "quack" sound ?

Yes, the same problem on mine.  Did you already send a ticket in for this bug?

Also having this problem when wiring a nashville style tele to have a middle pickup.  When I change models, or transfer to variax the pickups revert themselves to middle only it sounds like.

Haven't noticed it, but don't doubt what you are seeing. I think anyone who observes this and feels it's important should open a support ticket. The more tickets about the same issue, the higher it will move up in the fix-priority chain.

Geez, FWIW, there is a weird bug that when you move a neck pickup to where the bridge normally is, it changes its tab name for you in WB to bridge (hard to explain).

POTENTIAL TEMP FIX!#*#However, it seems that if you keep the bridge p/u where it is and turned off and move the neck p/u to the bridge spot (stack them) and treat it like a bridge p/u (i.e angle 10.7 and position 1.7), you can save your quacky settings! Swapping the bridge for the middle in the same manner seems to work for position 2 sounds.

Another weird thing I just noticed is that I can't hear a tonal difference when cycling through the Strats pickups. It seems that if the P/U is in the neck position it is going to sound like a neck p/u even if you use a "bridge" pickup.

Just you leave the position and return to position 2 to 1 pickup is off already, even if it appears to be on

Try this to see if it will work for you guys.   You should be able to save it now. There is nowhere else to share, so I put it in my google drive.  Here is position 2 setting .

Now there was a very strange bug, was trying to save the alterations in spank 2, and now the sound is gone in this position, this silent, even when I turn off the workbench the sound  this strat model 2 is mute. Anyone?

Hi buddy, thanks for your discovery, we need to do something, it is really the bug that is causing all this confusion, it seems to me seriously, looks like a bug caused by the single coils, but it seems to me are not taking it very seriously, I I am also not able to open a ticket, what can we do?

 

 

I think I found a bug when using the Spank pickups : each time I store a model using two of those pickups in the "quack" position, one of them is shut down - it appears "on" in workbench, but is actually off. See for yourself :

 

 

Maybe it's the source of the issue some users, including me, have with 2.0 "quack" sound ?

I got the quack doing what you said, bringing the neck pickup to the bridge and treating it like bridge, in same-parameters

Happened to me too, but I reflashed until it was gone :D

Well, no, it wasn't gone...
I realized just half an hour ago when I started playing with spank 2 and WTF'd several times until I opened WB and saw what was happening.
So now, thanks to Derek, the quack is back!!

I have reinstalled the firmware 4 or 5 times already, not sure I want to do this again as programming my custom tunings on the dedicated pot is a hassle... Later i'll try the workaround found by others but anyway this need a firmware update ;)
