  1. Where can I find a Line 6 authorized service center in the Netherlands?
  2. I included a recording of the sound. It almost sounds like a spring reverb. No effects, straight from the amp (Vox AC4) into iPhone Garageband recording. Hope this can clarify it better if it is a setup-up problem or a defect. Line 6 variax sound.m4a
  3. They put 10's from Elixir on the guitar for me (not sure if this is default) string gauges.
  4. Lowering the pickups did not make a difference. The guitar was setup by a authorized Line 6 dealer. The action is pretty high tho and some fret buz can be heard sometimes but not when playing the D chord. It can be heard when unplugged, it sounds like it's coming from inside of the guitar.
  5. Hi everyone! I just received my Line 6 Variax Standard today and when I was trying it out with the magnetic pickups I heard a resonating/high chime sound, especially when playing the D chord. I've tried to lower the magnetic pickups but it is still there, so it's not string pull I guess. When enabling the modeling the same can be heard but it's much harder to detect but it is still there. Is this normal is the guitar bad, or the setup?
  6. Thanks for the replay, I might try your method and see how I like that.
  7. Whenever I connect to my FireHawk FX ony my iPad it send my iPad audio to my FireHawk FX. I want to connect so I can use the app, not as an audio device. I can fix this by setting the sound back to the iPad once it connects. But is there are option to set the FireHawk FX NOT as an audio device device with Bluetooth connection? - JaPPa
  8. Helpful comment... can you tell me what version MacBook, MacOS and Workbench HD you are using? Clearly there is something that causes this since you are stating it's sharp as it should be. So let's try to find the issue here and help others who mind have the same problem. My specs are: MacBook Pro Retina 15" late 2013 model MacOS 10.12 Workbench HD 2.13
  9. I am trying out the Workbench HD app to see how it all works before buying a Variax guitar. But the Line 6 monkey and Workbench HD doesn't support the retina screen in a MacBook Pro, therefor it looks blurry and not pleasing on the eye at all. Will there be a 'Retina' update anytime soon? And is the Helix app the same for MacBook Pro users?
  10. I think the issue is that the speakers in the combo are voiced for the Spider IV. Your 4x12 is not, so it sounds different and in this case lesser for your taste. You may find tweaking all your settings to sounds good on your 4x12 to be your only option. Since speakers do make a big impact on the 'character' of the sound.
  11. Switching a effect on or off isn't a preset is it? Here is the URL to the product page where the 128 presets is presented as a feature.
  12. Hi guys, I'm wondering how I can save presets to my shortboard mkii? I'm using it in combination with a Spider IV 75 and do most of my edits in the edit software on my mac. On the product page of the shortboard is says but I can't find a way to save any preset the the board. Anyone knows how to do this? Thanks!
  13. Yes I have it installed. Fair point. I'll be using it for headphones too, since its a pain to connect a headphone to the Spider IV 75, so thats upgrade as well from my point of view.
  14. Hi guys, My 'Stomp' switch is dead, it click but does not activate or deactivate. Is there a way to calibrate the switch or a trick to make it live again? Or is there a way to reconfig the switches so I can set the 'stomp' function to anther (good working) switch? Cheers
