Does anyone in the rumor mill know about the projected release date of JTV firmware, v2.0?  With the old forum gone, so is that thread.

The old forum isn't gone - it's just read-only now.

.... and, yes, I'd like to see the update soon too!

2.0? What happened to the forum? This is so disorienting.... Anyway, a good time being had by all. Good fun waiting patiently for our free update. I will be happy when it comes. But it is more disturbing to find the forum is GONE! Harmony Central disappeared too. At least my guitar is still here, and the electricity is still on. Really, can't complain. Life is good...

The forum was attacked by spam recently. They couldn't get a handle on it with the old system, so they had to move to a new forum architecture to be able to defend against it.

 

As for the 2.0 update, I've been checking here about every 2 days looking for something. A while back they removed the "coming soon" announcement, which makes me think they had some show-stopping bugs, and have had to seriously delay the release.

Line 6 could learn from the Fractal Audio where they give progress reports and numerous updates to products.  I love my dream rig but Line 6 has fallen way behind on product updates and their ability to compete.   I want progress reports, teasers, insights on product usage, straight line communication and to feel like a true part of a community.  Thank you.

If a progress report doesn't actually get the update here any faster, then I can do without. I don't need to be spoonfed to keep me happy. I play guitar for that.

To that, I can add: If a "coming soon" announcement doesn't actually get the update in four months, then I can do without.

Looking forward to this too - but i'd rather they delay it and get it right than do a half-arsed job. :)

As much as I'm curious to see the new "HD" electric models, I concur with the sentiment that repetitive "nearly done" announcements or extremely fluid ETAs isn't that useful, so might as well just sit back and relax.

 

I will, however, suggest that Line 6 could be a bit more prompt about notifying JTV owners; unless your lurking in the forums or firing up Line 6 Monkey daily to check versions, it's often a week or two before Line 6 sends out a newsletter with "hey, look what got released recently!" It would be kinda nice if Line 6 sent out an e-mail to registered JTV owners the day it drops, or at least by the following day.

I am ready... but if Line 6 is not then I'm fine with waiting.

It would be really cool if they somehow combined the HD Edit software and the new HD workbench into a single program which lets you tweak all aspects of your rig in a single program.

 

Oh, and while they are at it, customtone needs to be reworked so we can find Variax and "Dream Rig" optimized patches more easily.

All I want are some periodic updates.  "Hey guys, we're working on it - today we had a Tele in the studio working on the modeling for it.  Stay tuned."  That's all I need.  I don't really need an ETA that puts undue pressure on them - I don't really need it to come out ANY faster.  Just take a PR guy like Sean, put him in front of a camera, and reassure us.  The silence on a POD update is even more frustrating - especially considering all the work forum members have done in pointing out upgrades that could conceivably be done in software (notably meambobbo).  

 

I dunno, maybe that's just me - just some carefully worded PR communication would alleviate quite a bit of stress 'round these parts.  Playful "the wait is killing me!" threads have much less animosity than "I wonder what's going on? Did they forget about us" threads.   At least that's my two cents worth.

The second I heard a little hint of the HD 2.0 update (in a 2013 NAMM youtube video) I have been dying for the update as well. I was off the forums for a long time and just came back last week. This new forum is slightly hard to get used to but I think it will be a lot better in the long run. I already enjoy the look much more.

Think about it, an entirely new firmware V 2.0....it's not v1.9.1..and by the way, I'm pretty sure Fractal Audio learned a thing or two from Line 6 ;)

 

I'm really hoping for iOS support for HD Edit/Workbench like buddy suggested below...They've achieved this with the StageScape why not Edit/Workbench?

 

I am ready... but if Line 6 is not then I'm fine with waiting.

Yeah, I'm surprised that we haven't heard anything. You would have thought there would have been more information released there.
Maybe they have scrapped it... :angry:

So here we are at the end of Summer Namm and nothing.  Nary a word.  Is anyone happy with this?  I still stick to what I posted earlier.  Its a shame that we now think that the project is scraped.  What else are we to think?

Yeah I am right there with you guys. Don't even let a word get out about an update if you don't have it out within a quarter of the year from the first word about it. I'm annoyed a little with the release of the HD500X but I think the additions they have for it are welcomed. Enough for me to sell my HD500 now and get the X. I hate the footswitches on the HD500 and always have. Maybe the release of the HD500X took all the attention away from the JTV update. No excuse but it would make sense. If anyone hears anything, hit me up asap!

The project isn't scrapped. I can't share more details than that. But I can assure the HD update will be here, and I think that once people play the new models, they will be very happy with them.
