Hi

I have an original Variax...the first model. I'd like to update the guitar and whatever I need to use w/ a new iMac OSX 10.8.4....been a while so I want to get it right.

 

Thanks

Download monkey latest edition, connect the Variax with the Line 6 Hub or with your pod or with your vetta, and download whatever the monkey will prompt you.

Before line6 was called line6... they used to do r&d for other companies like alesis + others. and when those customers came to visit the offices of line6 (before it was called line6) and the receptionist needed to warn all the guys who were designing products for other companies (and for themselves... ) who were like 'in the back' the receptionist would announce over a tannoy 'tellephone call for 'fred smith' on line 6' the cunning part was that they only had 5 telephone lines, so it was the secret code for "hide your sh1t the feds are comin'" or "someone's coming, let's hide these PODs that we aren't going to release for another few years so they don't see them"

Thanks...trying to do the same w/ my PODxt-it doesn't show up in OSX's audio I/O so I'm sure I need new drivers etc. Try the same routine?  ( Monkey, jack in and follow the monkey.. :-)?

 

Appreciate the help
