Ok, this has been bugging me for a while.  I finally got around to recording the warble noise I hear on my jtv 69 when using alt tunings.  This example was recorded direct, with no speakers on during the recording.  I have the current version firmware version installed on my jtv.  I start out with no modeling, using pickup setting 2.  From there I turn on the modeling (spank, standard tuning) and scroll through the various tuning modes (drop d, 1/2 step, drop d flat, one step down and baritone).

 

I have tried dampening the strings behind the nut as well as dampening the trem spring. The warble remains.  The guitar is tuned to standard using 10 gauge strings. The trem is not floating.  I think the warble/pulse is clear to hear.

 

Let me know if you hear it to.

Is this HD firmware? You're think they'd fix that by now. I thought they made the pitch shifting better.

 

Edit: Listening to your example, I don't think it's bad at all. When you say warble I thought you meant really bad warble. It's kind of something you have to accept with pitch shifting.

All I hear is a tiny hint of splcing artifacts.  As clay-man points out, this is unavoidable.

I don't really hear anything... I'm just listening through my computer speakers, not headphones. Nothing is popping out as that bad to me.

I have found that sometimes I like the 12 string models and sometimes I think they sound strange.  IMO they are not quite right.  Never have been.

They require a light touch, that's for sure. I don't use them all that often, but they have come in handy on occasion. My band was in the studio last year, and we had a song where we thought a 12-string part would work well, so I pulled up the Ric 12-string, and recorded it, and I thought it ended sounding great. I was actually kind of surprised with how well it turned out, to be honest.

Thank you all for taking to time to listen and reply. To me, the problem is most noticeable on the 1/2 down example.  There is a noticeable pulsing, similar to the sound you heard when tuning using harmonics.  

 

I normally use 9's on my guitars, but thought I would try 10's since that's what line 6 ships the jtv's with.  When I did that, I now notice the noise on the 5th and 6th strings. I only heard it on the low E prior.  I plan on trying 8's to see if that makes any difference.

That warble is nothing. 

 

The only question I have is is the warble when doing hammer ons and pull offs on the high frets still so bad that it plays a different note than you're playing still?

 

This is a problem I have on my Variax, did they fix that in the HD firmware? I really need an answer for this please.
