No, how do you do that?

Looks to me like the bottom right hand corner of the WB control panel. You can see the word "Model"; to the left of that is the control slider for the Mag/Model blend.

You can blend the Mags and the models - just keep in mind that the mags can't be pitch shifted.

So in theory something like a Fernandes Sustainer could be fitted as well and mixed? Cool.

That is cool!  So if you blend in a little, I assume you wont perceive much, if any, latency.

   That's true. You'll hear the initial attack of the mags, and it will mask any latency of the modeled sound, but as Post #4 stated, you can't do this and use ANY altered tunings, or it will sound terrible. You'd have to be real careful about which models you do this on & what patches or tunings you use them for. I do like the sound of the mags mixed in for some sounds. If you don't use alternate tunings, or you don't on specific models, it's not really an issue.

 

   You can also do this without adding the mags to a specific model in WB, on a patch basis by using input 1 set to "Variax" and input 2 set to "Variax Mags", and avoid having the mags mixed into a model by default. If you wanted to mix the proportion of model to mags, you'd really have to have them separated on a dual path patch.

I wonder how the mags would sound blended with a model that had alt tuning as a 12 string counterpart, i.e., octaves for E A D G and detuned B and E strings.  That may be worth playing around with.

You can mix with alternate tunings that are in harmony like a 5th.  Sounds cool.
