   I've bounced back and forth, just to check them out and see what the differences are. I've had trouble running the old (Non-HD) workbench, so I've gone back to 2.0, at least for now. There are some models that are a little better pre-HD, but also a lot of improvements in HD. I guess it's a horse apiece for me right now, and unless I can get the old version of workbench running, the older pre-HD models are less usable if I can't adjust them. I probably would have to load an older version of monkey, and/or drivers, but I haven't managed to weed through all that to figure out what I have to do for the older workbench.

 

   Anyway, I'm on HD for what it's worth. I'm new to all of this so I'm not tied into the old models. Some of the older model versions are definitely different, and maybe better (Strats), but I didn't find any that I absolutely had to have. Maybe if I spent more time with them & could adjust them I'd feel different.

I rolled back both my JTV-59 and JTV-69 - and cant understand the excitement over HD 2.0 (I cant hear anything in HD 2.0  that I would consider as "improved" over FW1.9) 

 

Im getting MUCH better sounds and usability with FW 1.9, and I can still use my HD-500 and a USB cable (or my Vetta +MIDI cable) to run WorkBench on the road. No need for the flaky one trick pony USB Workbench interface which is the only way to run HD 2.0 Workbench.

I have my new JTV-69s with HD 2.0 and a Variax 500 with v1.9 but at this point now use the 69 more.

I don't care for the HD "mic'd acoustic" models. To me, there's too much room ambience, which makes them sound muddy in a live context.

 

I liked the 2.0 electric models. For whatever reason, I didn't have any problem with the Strat in positions 2 & 4, as some people did.

 

Ideally, I would use the 2.0 electrics with the pre-HD acoustics. Not currently an option, though.

I've rolled back my 69 to fw 1.9. I have a 59p on the way and will probably give fw2.0 another shot on that one.  

I may roll my 69 back to the pre acoustic HD firmwares as I prefer the more direct sound of those for live use.

I rolled back. Here's what I said in another forum post:

 

I love my JTV Variax! I installed v 2.0 update on my JTV-59 and I have found the following:

 

* new Teles sound great, especially like the 2 & 4 versions with humbuckers, which are much better than the useless 2&4 models in 1.9

* Spank models generally thinner sounding and 2&4 not as distinctive as 1.9's 2 & 4

* Semi - much cooler sound.  I much prefer the 1.9 version which has a warm an resonant tone

* all 12 string models - a touch better than 1.9

 

After spending ages adjusting amp settings on my POD HD I concluded that , on balance, I preferred the 1.9 firmware and I reflashed my JTV back to 1.9. It was like coming home! Shame to lose the new Tele, but my guitar sounds louder and better now. Maybe it's because I was used to the 1.9 and the change in 2.0 was too much, but for me the poor quality of the Strat and the Semi were deal breakers for me.

 

There seems to be a lot of superstitious comments in this forum about firmware updates "not taking", but I find it difficult to believe that a digital device can "partially" take a software update. I believe personal preference is in play here and that some people are finding the 2.0 models too thin.

 

Luckily it's very simple to rollback!

I rolled back, and will wait until they release a fully functional (for me) version before I try again.

 

I found the HD Lester models had lost all the sustain and I don't like having to use the dongle when I've already got my HD500 plugged into the PC. I use my JTV69 for gigging and recording so i want to use the same setup all the time, something not possible with Workbench HD....yet.

One good morning, fresh from playing (late night hours are usual for me), I opened L6 forums, and read the long-awaited news that the HD upgrade had arrived.
I opened the monkey, updated my JTV, I played for a few minutes and found that spank 2 position sounded really far from what I needed and I didn't have time to deal with it at that moment, so I rolled back and continued to tour the rest of the week with pre-HD version.
Days later, when I finally came home, I gave  another chance to the HD version, and this time, after comparing several times between the two versions, the HD stayed.

I rolled back to 1.9 and it is definitely better than 2.0 in my opinion.
