  1. Hey All, Maybe a simple answer for this.... When I press the edit footswitch I get PRESET Up and PRESET Down. I want to have BANK Up and BANK Down so that I can enter the Snapshot mode. How can I change this? Cheers, Mike
  2. I was hoping there was some way to 'trick' it into thinking that a switch was a pedal. How? Well, the Hx detects a minimum value from the pedal and a maximum value. One of these is used to turn the pedal off or on. Why couldn't a switch be used the same way. When the switch is engaged, the HX sees a minimum value and when the switch is off it sees a maximum.
  3. Datacommando - thanks for all of your replies. Maybe I just haven't phrased my question properly. This really has nothing to do with the Mission Pedal. So... can I turn the HX Effects Wah block on / off using an external switch plugged into 'Pedal 2'
  4. Hi, Mine has one expression output and one switch output (latching). I was hoping to use the switch output to turn the wah on and off. Is there a way to do this?
  5. Thanks for your reply. The pedal is a Mission Aero EP-25-PRO. I guess the point of my question is... can the switch from the pedal be used to turn the effect on and off?
  6. Hey All, I have a Mission Engineering pedal with a switch. I would like to use it like a traditional Wah pedal with my HX Effects. So, toe down engages the switch and turns the Wah on / off. I have the the control jack of the pedal into EXP 1 with it set for Position. I have the switch jack of the pedal into EXP 2 with it set for Bypass. This does not seem to work. Any idea what I am doing wrong? Cheers, Mike
  7. To All, Just tied a bit of wire around it. Works fine.... cheap fix. Cheers, Mike
  8. Hey All, Is there are way to disable the looper switch? I never use this feature of the HD500. Last niight at practice I stepped on it accidentaly and started recording myself. I took a while for me to figure out what was going on and how to stop it! Is there any way to disable the switch either mechanically or through the software? Cheers, Mike
  9. To All, 2.0 installed without a hitch, Workbench looks great. I have given a brief try to all the models. To my ear a substantial improvement! Tele, Strat and the Pauls's especially. Great job Line 6! Cheers, Mike
  10. To All, Yes - this is for modeled versions. I was hoping maybe on one of the boards there were six tiny adjustments! Cheers, Mike
  11. Hey All, Is there any way to adjust the volume of the individule strings. The low 'E' on my JTV59 seems to have less volume then the others. If I turn up the bass on my amp it affects all the strings which I don't want. I thought there might be an internal adjustment. Cheers, Mike
  12. To All, Yep - a capo is the way to go. I learned this from trying to change the strings on my epiphone Broadway! Cheers, Mike
  13. Hey, I would start with the Fender clean models like the Blackface Dbl or Blackface 'vib. I use the 2x12 Phd ported cabinet. In the effects area I would add some EQ. I find some of the acoustic models either bass heavy or treble heavy. Add some reverb too taste! Cheers, Mike
  14. To All, It would be great if the Variax Workbench had a way to turn off the tone cut with decrease in volume. Cheers, Mike
  15. Hey All, I have a JTV59. I have noticed there is a considerable loss of high end as I turn down my volume control. I know this was intentionally built into the models but it is more then I see from the 'real' pickups in the bypass mode. Is there any way to program this out? Also in the Variax editior I notice that the pot taper are 'linear' Why is this? every guitar I have ever seen has audio taper pots at least on the volume control. Best Regards, Mike
  16. PROBLEM SOLVED! With appearently no other option except sending the guitar to Line 6 for repair or returning it to Guiar Center, I had one more thought. I plugged the guitar into my HD500 via the VDI cable and the HD500 into the computer via USB. I ran L6 Monkey and both (HD-500 and JTV59) showed up!. I ran the installer for ver 1.9 and .... what do you know, it worked. Thanks for everyone comments and help.
  17. Hi, Tried my laptop as well. Same issue... Code (80009000) unknown MIDI error. Best Regards, Mike
  18. Hi, Yes - I downloaded the update as well. Same issue. I will set up Monkey on my laptop and give that a try. Thanks!
  19. Hey All, An update might or might not come. ... until then: How about some unique parameter controll / sounds on the HD. Here's one.... set the footpedal to increase the channel drive while simultaneously decreaseing the channel volue. In others words set the drive to go from say 20-100% on Exp 1 while setting the Channel Vol to go from 100-20% also on Exp 1. Let's hear about some others! Cheers, Mike
  20. Hey All, I bought a JTV 59 a week ago. Plays fine, no issues. Firmware as received is 1.71. So I run Monkkey andf it tells me the latest version is now 1.9. Do the firmware upgrade and it fails with a messager saying Code (80009000) unknown MIDI error. Spent 30 minutes on the phone with Line 6 tech support (very friendly). Swapped cables, USB ports, etc.... no use. Suggested that I return to Line 6 for repair (2-3 weeks turnaround time). I was able to roll it back to 1.71. Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions. Best Regards, Mike
  21. Hey all, Has anyone put a Les Paul style pickguard on the JTV-59? Does the standard pickguard fit? Cheers, Mike
