You know what's revolting?  There's a guy on eBay who grabs all those patches from Institute of Noise and sells them for $6 or so, claiming authorship.  Sickening.

Thanks for the great post!  I've had my JTV for 9 months now and love it, but have been feverishly searching for users that have developed cool new models with no avail.  If you look at all those presets knowone's done anything new since like 2009.  I'm kinda bummed Line 6 hasn't update the fireware with any new features in almost a year now.  I thought I remembered them saying they had big plans for updates.  Oh well I'm still loving this guitar. Anyone have any tips on how I could get close to a Languedoc sound without $10K;)

Cheers,

Ryan

Be aware that there are different file types for these Workbench patches. Some of them are models only (VWM) and others are full sets that cover all positions with various models (VWB)

If somebody wants to fake bluegrass/5 string banjo thing, you can buy Third Hand Capo or some other partial capo (THC cost me €10 used), tune four upper strings to open G (d,b,g,d from high to low) and A string up a seventh to G and capo that on 12th fret. 

No, it does not feel or sound like real banjo but it's close enough and it's fun. T

Are there any Video Tutorials around on modifying models, adding models and sending to the JVT?
