  1. I'm not at home so I can't check but I did notice several months ago that my leds are now pretty useless. They seem to light up pretty randomly when I push the button (even once) and never indicate the battery level. I assumed something went malfunctioning there and I don't use it anymore :).
  2. Check this http://line6.com/support/topic/5247-spdif-in-and-out-simultaneously/ Does it help ?
  3. Are you trying to use the UX2 as your input ? Or only as an output ? Because Rocksmith only work with their "Real Tone Cable" as an input. And as this cable is an ASIO interface, I don't think you can run 2 ASIO interfaces at the same time.
  4. Ok, my bad ! My browser seemed to have cached the page and didn't display it. Thanks a lot then !
  5. Come on, this is EASY, just a few things to set. Right now your IdeaScale is useless as you can't search it and there are so many duplicates that it's annoying to follow. Are you even using it ?
  6. Nice ! I checked a few others and they all seemed to work (didn't check the data though, but at least it's not 404 anymore). THANK YOU !
  7. Youhou ! 5 months later, still not working, and still HTTP 404. Please hire any intern, almost any can fix that in a few days... RSS is the best way to keep up with everything you're interested in on the Internet and it's sad that it seems noone wants to give it love ! (although it's so simple !)
  8. I was wondering if the effects & amps available on the FX100 are the ones that are provided with the POD X3 ? In their ads they says there are more than 200 effects so I guess there are not the POD HD (there are a bit less) and as they say there are many existing sounds on custom tone, I guess this is not a new set of simulated gear but it's from previous products. If it's X3, isn't it a step back in "simulation" quality ?
  9. You need to add the search field in the Line 6 IdeaScale template. This is REALLY annoying not being able to search and to see all those duplicates. I want to see this at the top of the page, like that. Seem like you need to add "{IDEASCALE_SEARCH}" in the template (but not sure).
  10. I know it's becoming quite repetitive but... another 3 months later, still 404 errors on RSS links... Come on, RSS feeds are easy to make.
  11. Aaaaaand 4 months later, it's still not working... The button is there, the links are there... All of them still giving 404 errors...
  12. Okay, this is not the first time I'm using MIDI this way but it seems to me that something changed, this behaviour is strange and I don't know if it's the "normal" behaviour or the POD or if it's my software... I created a patch with effects mapped to FS1. I use Reaper to send a CC 51 message to enable or disable it. I think that the last time I used that, CC51 with a 0 value disabled the effect, A CC 51 message with a 127 value enabled it. But today it seems to toggle it, whatever value I send (0, 127 or any between). Is this new, or did I dream ? :) My goal is to record my guitar without me having to touch the POD HD500, a MIDI track on Reaper is controlling all the effects / patch changes. And now I have a problem : let's say that I record several takes as I did some mistakes. I can't just restart the recording, I have to reset the POD effects before, because if FS1 is OFF, a CC message will toggle it to ON, but if I stopped the recording while FS1 was ON, it will toggle to OFF. So the state of the POD is not predictable. I'd like to be able to start the playback anywhere in the track and have to POD set to the correct state. It could work if the POD was considering the value of the CC message, but it doesn't seem to be the case, or I'm doing something wrong. I don't know if it's possible for Reaper to know the state of the POD and send a CC to reset FS1 (I'll also ask on the Reaper forums). I configured it to send a "all-notes-off" and "reset CC" but the POD doesn't seem to react to those messages. Any idea of what I could do or what I did wrong ?
  13. You're right, I think this is quite easy : just add models / pickups to Workbench, and let the user choose the models they want in their Variax. Line 6 don't need to change anything to the default models (preventing complaints ^^). Like they did for the "high gain" models in the last update : the custom 1 bank on the 89 reverted to the factory defaults and the user can load again the high gain models, on any slot they want through Workbench. For the "power down" feature, I thought that if you set the volume to 0, it shuts down the Variax. And if you disable the modelling it drains the battery ? I didn't notice that, the battery is always in my guitar and I didn't notice a loss of power if I don't use the modelling. Else, the solution right now is to power the Variax with a VDI cable...
  14. Hey Line 6 ! A small reminder : RSS feeds still give me a "page doesn't exist" error ! It's been more than 2 months !

    They just upgraded the unit, improving some physical issues for new buyers. Why not, I don't think they expect people who already own one to buy a new one... People that felt limited by the DSP limit might be interested but probably not a lot of people. What surprises me is that there is still no power switch :). This was an issue we heard everywhere when the HD500 was released !
  16. Yeah ! Thanks for the notice. I'll test that. Hum... Good start but all feeds link to 404 pages :)
  17. Oh no I don't want to edit them, I'm just responding to Mr_Arkadin... I pretty satisfied with the existing ones. And the reason why I'd like to copy them, is because I don't see myself playing something and mid-song looking at my buttons, turning the bank button to find the right one and moving the model switcher... Not really doable quickly :). I mostly use alternate models (12-string,...) for intros, but the song start right on the next bar, no time for that ! (and I prefer not to overwrite an existing model, so I only alter custom 1 & 2) This is why I tried to copy the mags models or copy the alternate models I want to custom 1. And both failed. So what I wanted to do is putting all the models I want in the same bank (custom 2), so I just need to move the model switcher. But my initial question is answered. I wanted to have a confirmation that I can't copy the mags models, and it's not me doing something wrong. I'll use another model until Line 6 release its update.
  18. Eh eh, this is where it's funny : Line 6 created specific models (that reproduce the Variax mags), locked them on the Custom 1 bank, but until they release a proper update for the Variax & Workbench, those models can't be changed, copied, opened or edited. AFAIK, Workbench doesn't support those models right now (can't open / use assets to create your own model based on these mags models). I didn't try though.
  19. (Note that I don't blame the Variax or Line 6 for my issues ^^). I agree with you, it's probably the cable, but it is really difficult to find a VDI cable in France, at a reasonable price (I only find cable at the double of the Amazon.com price), as Line 6 won't ship it here, nor Amazon. So if each cable last less that one year, it will be a huge money sink ! :). But if anyone knows a retailer that sells them at reasonable price & ships them to France, I'm all ears ! Right now I like my new solution, it is simpler. I have less "live" patches and now all of them fit in one bank (as now I can use the same patch with several models), and no "communication" issues that could occur during live performance and ruin it. Only drawback : I have to find new "high gain" variax models !
  20. Of course of course ! Too bad the one I want to copy is locked :). I'm just disappointed that I can't get the model I want right now. But that's what I'll do... I'll try to find a model I like or I'll create one. But I prefer to play than spending time on that :). I used to use the POD HD500 + VDI to change the patches but after having several issues during rehearsals (patch changes not applied, tuning resets, i have a weird pop / scratchy / contact noise when plugged with the VDI and when I'm not playing...), I decided to drop the VDI as I find it not reliable enough, and play on battery with a regular cable and manual model switch. But that requires that the models are on the same bank in order to be easy enough to switch :).
  21. Ok, I see... That's too bad because it basically means I can't use them... Let's hope they'll release the change really soon then.
  22. I noticed something quite strange yesterday and I'd like to know if someone else can reproduce the same issue. First some context : For my band, I want to have 4 specific models on my JTV-89 applied to the Custom 2 bank (as the Custom 1 bank is currently locked with the models reproducing the variax mags - I tried, Workbench seem to write the models I want but when I refresh, the mags models are still there). As I really like the mags models, I want to use the Neck and Bridge "mags" models (on slot 1 and 5) and 2 other models from the other banks (on slot 2 and 3). The problem I encounter is that when I copy the variax mags models from custom 1 to custom 2 with Workbench, it seems to work properly, the name of the models are displayed in Workbench (even when I refresh ^^), but it doesn't sound like the mags models. With everything set up exactly the same, with the same POD HD500 patch, if I switch from custom 1 - position 1 to custom 2 - position 1 (should be the same as I copied the model), the sound changes. I don't know which model it is, but it is definitely not the variax mags models. I suspect that it kept the previous model and just renamed it. Anyone notice that ? Any workaround ? I really like the mags models :).
  23. Thanks ! I hope it'll be quickly implemented !
