Just updated my JTV 59 and standard tuning sounds fine but as soon as I go  a Half step down it sounds horrible! Almost like there are two guitars playing ! Anyone else experiencing this?

There are two guitars playing. The one that is in standard tuning can still be heard by your ears - the strings on the guitar are vibrating in standard tuning. The other guitar you are hearing is the virtual one that has been dropped down a half step.


You need to turn up the volume of the modeled sound (your amp / monitors) so that you can no longer hear the natural string acoustic vibrations. Or you can wear headphones.


To test this, try recording a bit of your playing. You won't hear the standard tuning on playback - only the modeled (alternate tuning) sound is recorded.

You also have to make sure that you do not have the Mag pickups enabled when you use alternate tunings.  That can happen with 2.0.
