Great! Can't wait to try this out. I have not used Workbench HD for more than 5 minutes since it's release because it did not work through my Pod HD500/Pro. Pure laziness, I know... But still....

This is something a lot of people have been asking for.

Lol...let the games begin!

I never upgrade on day one...with anything. Gotta wait for the techies to try it out, pull it apart and see what works and what doesn't. For all we know, the D string will now only spit out the call of the yellow-bellied sapsucker if you're facing north while you play...too many quirks with these things. Right now mine's working, and I'd like to keep it that way.

ok so I just completed the update and it went smoothly with no hickups.  First I updated Workbench HD with Monkey, no problems.  Then I connected my JTV-69 with the USB brick (remember to charge your battery and use a 1/4" dummy plug to turn on) and In Monkey selected Change Device.  It brought up a new window and I selected the JTV.  Now it showed needing the update and it also went smoothly.  Takes a while but it gets it done.

 

Now with JTV connected to HD500 and HD500 connected to computer with USB I can open Workbench and it sees the JTV and downloads all 60 models in a snap, very fast.  I can also open HD Edit simultaneously.  Connected to my DT25 with L6 link everything works together seemlessly.  I can change models and patches on the computer in their individual programs without any interference.

 

For the first time I actually used the blending for the mags and it sounds great.  I saved some blended models to Custom 1 to play with later.  Sounds awesome, don't know if anything else was fixed but it is fine in my book... :D

 

PS - Windows 7, tower not laptop, FIOS broadband, USB 2.0...

 

BTW...  Homerun!

Downloading the firmware file will do that because it has no file association. After downloading open monkey select jtv and flash from file.

Here's what happened with my update.....

 

- JTV59 -> PodHD Pro -> PC via USB. PC running Windows 7 Professional

- powered on HD Pro and computer

- ran Line 6 Monkey

- default device selected was HD Pro. Monkey showed HD Workbench update available - v2.10

- updated Workbench HD with no issues

- ran Line 6 Monkey again; selected JTV59 as device. Monkey showed JTV update available; v2.10

- updated JTV with no issues; opted not to retain existing JTV presets

 

After installing both updates successfully I cycled the power on the HD Pro, just for kicks.

 

Launched HD Workbench. It immediately identified the JTV and uploaded all presets within a few seconds. Because there had been previous issues regarding the Spank model I selected it as the first test. I was able to adjust the string volumes to normalize the top two strings with the other four. I loaded the revised preset from Workbech HD to the JTV without issue. I then exited Workbench HD. The string volume leveling continued to be in effect in the JTV. I restarted Workbench HD. It loaded all presets again in seconds. The revised settings from the previous session were evident in Workbench HD.

 

Total time expired for all of the above, including string volume adjustments: Less than 10 minutes.

 

All looks good so far.  (another Home Run, cruisinon2! Better find the hot dog guy soon. I think he's leaving the stadium.)

LOL! Now thats good timing. I just packed my HD 500 away in its original box since it was replaced by the Kemper. BUT I now have the Line 6 Power Box for the Variax and still have the Ethernet/USB cable so if I feel the urge to mess with HD Workbench 2.10 I can. I havent been motivated to do it yet but you never know.

The string volumes are all over the place. Again. It's not my job to level them.

Back to 1.9 we go. Again.

Don't worry, I won't be spoiling your fun. 
I now know what to expect in the future. Lesson learned.

Why on earth wouldn't a fix for the string volume levels be included?
It was one of the major errors with 2.0.
Shows lack of attention to details IMHO.
Kinda like having a new car with a dent in the hood from the factory
and your supposed to be happy with it.
Yeh, you can fix it yourself, but you shouldn't have too.

Come on version 2.2, 2.3, 2.4 etc.....

Just for balance, I bought the JTV-59 3 months ago with 2.0 installed. I have no problem with string volume levels. Of course Ive never used the HD Workbench, if that is a factor with this issue.

Well, there are 3 basic possiblities, right?

A] You couldn't get the update to work.

 

B] It worked and you think its the best thing since indoor plumbing, and you will scream from the rooftops about the magnanimous generosity of those who have bestowed such a gift upon you.

 

C] It worked, but you hate it, consider it to be an utter failure, and you will scream from the rooftops about the lack of vision of those responsible.

So far I count 3 A's, 3 B's, 2 C's, and one "I don't care because I bought a Kemper".... :lol: lmao. Almost a completely even split...lol, with equal servings of praise, vitriol, plus one or two things entirely irrelevant to the discussion. More or less exactly what I expected, lol.

But admittedly, it's still early in the game. I'll be waiting for a larger sample size before trying it for myself and rendering a verdict....but no reason to yank the pitcher just yet ;)

Hello everyone
C'est la merde :
"There was an error communicating with your device. If it is a USB device, try disconnecting then reconnecting the USB cable.
Error: (Code 8000900C) MIDI device timed out waiting for a response."
Et le pire :
- Les led s'allument en bleu, vert ... 
- Plus de son
- Impossible d'installer les anciens firmwares.

This was a nice surprise this morning.  And it worked fine - no issues.  All it does is sort a couple of the biggest issues with 2.0 - but that is an entirely good thing.  And there don't even appear to be any downsides!

It's fixed...

some didn't like the new strat even fixed though....

but it is 100% confirmed as modeled and intended by Line6.

I haven't had a chance to test this one out yet, but I am hopeful that this fixes a distinct popping noise that was evident when switching presets in a Pod HD device, where the preset change also involved a JTV model change stored in the preset. This isue was apparently introduced with JTV v2.0; it was not present in JTV v1.9.

 

If anyone who previously noticed this problem has tested this yet in v2.1, please report......

 

(Note: this is simply my hope - not information from Line 6).

I didn't specifically change patches with different JTV models assigned last night but I did multiple changes with both Workbench and HD Edit connected and there was never any sort of popping or noise associated with any of the model changes or patch changes.  The model changes were fast and seemless and silent.  I will try to replicte the previous popping conditions tonight and check it out but my guess is it has been fixed...

It is currently number 2 on the HOT LIST under GUITARs section. It has 11 votes so far.  

In the RELEASED tab I can now see the "Variax/Workbench using POD HD as an interface".

So, I assume from that info, that the popping noise has not been addressed deliberately but perhaps it has been fixed as a side effect of latest updates......hopefully someone can confirm one way or another.

What a nice surprise!  I could not wait to see what kind of issues others had.  I downloaded new workbench and new flash memory files and both upgrades went perfectly.  It is so nice to be able to use WB and Edit at the same time while connected to my HD500x.  The models sound fine and I do not notice any problem with string volumes - but I didn't with 2.0 either.  I'm a happy camper.  Thanks Line6!

that's a pretty bold assumption...

i wouldn't count it out yet... i suspect that they had other internal reports on this and simply didn't work from the ideascale submission...

a good chance it's been addressed.... 

 

It is currently number 2 on the HOT LIST under GUITARs section. It has 11 votes so far.  

In the RELEASED tab I can now see the "Variax/Workbench using POD HD as an interface".

So, I assume from that info, that the popping noise has not been addressed deliberately but perhaps it has been fixed as a side effect of latest updates......hopefully someone can confirm one way or another.

I was hoping the Ideascale item would show it as Released; that would be clear confirmation. But, like Zap, I am inclined to think it may have been fixed intentionally but Ideascale has not yet been updated to reflect it. In any case, it's not the Ideascale status that matters; it's whether I still hear the popping. And I should have time later today to test and report on that.

Yep - I know - assumptions usually end up being wrong - anyway I hope it has been addressed and eagerly await confirmation.
