  1. I've just submitted the idea. Here it is if anyone more wants to chime in or help with the vote: https://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Virtual-Sustainiac-pickup-in-Workbench-HD-for-Variax-guitars/1020114-23508?submitted=1
  2. Thanks for the reply, mr. Parkissian. I just realized that this wouldn't actually solve my problem, as I need the actual strings on the guitar to vibrate permanently in order to use it like I described (with the MIDI pickup). I certainly can (and do) use an ebow for single notes, but what I really want is to be able to play full chords and have them to sound whatever the time I want them to. So for the time being the solution will have to be another guitar with enough space to install both the Triple Play and the Gizmotron (which achieves this mecanically and not magnetically). Unfortunately I'll loose the extended sound palette of modeled guitar sounds from the Variax, which would make it even greater. But even so... I really like the idea of having a virtual sustainiac as an option in Workbench HD - as an expressive possibility to the Variax models itself. I'll probably submit the idea in IdeaScale (and mention it came from an insight by yourself). Kudos for the one who actually had it envisioned. ;)
  3. Now I'm confused. Is it possible to model and include a digital Sustainiac thru Workbench HD? Wouldn't it be necessary to have the hardware counterpart (which creates the magnetic field that makes the strings vibrate permanently)? The idea is that instead of having that to happen phisically, the folks at Line 6 would instead include some kind of infinite sustain to each models output to be triggered by adding the virtual Sustainiac pickup (so you could get a forever sustained Spank, Lester, etc)? If I got it correct and indeed it's possible, that would be actually SO COOL. A dream come true, actually. I bought myself a Gizmotron that I wanted to use to use in conjuction with my JTV-69S HSS and Fishman Triple Play, in order to be able to play some VSTs without having the sounds to stop after some short time (like strings for example). But then I realized that unfortunately there's no space for having both the Triple Play and the Gizmotron at the same time in the JTV69 (since both are supposed to be installed right above the bridge). So my other option would be to have something like a sustainiac installed instead, but then I saw it's not advised to do so by Line 6 staff. So if something like this virtual Sustainiac would be theoretically possible, that would be a huge thing for me. Count me in for the Idea Scale vote, if that's the case.
  4. Hey guys! Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead... So I'm also thinking of getting myself a humbucker cover for my JTV69S (HSS). Just wanted to confirm if the right size would be 52mm. From what I measured, it seemed so, but just wanted to double check before closing the deal. I've tried to find that info in the links from Full Compass posted before, but they're seem to be all "missing". I'll appreciate any help! Thanks in advance =)
  5. I'm still on 1.71 up to this date. I remember trying newer firmware - for some reason I'd recalled it as being 1.90, but checking previous posts of mine it might actually have been 2.21 - and been very impressed by the Tele sounds. But the Strat and the Acoustic models were the culprit for staying on 1.71. For me the only downside to it is the unusable Position 4 Tele. But I can live with(out) it. For me the biggest frustration is not being able to mess with Workbench HD. I'd love to experiment with it and see what sounds I could come with - something I never got to do even with the non-HD version (which nowadays won't run in my current OS). I REALLY wish Line 6 would think of a way that we could have the best of both worlds, getting to customize the guitar by saving your favorite models from whatever firmware you want. I understand it's two completely different architectures. But that would be much appreciated. Other kind of "let down" was that there was never other kinds of guitars modelled. The newer firmwares just updated (and sometimes not improving it at all, like demonstrated here) the existing ones, or in some cases replaced it with similar ones. There could have been SG's, Jaguars, Mustang, Jazzmasters, you name it... It seems like there was this piece of tech with lots of room for expanding (like they do with the Helix platform nowadays) but somehow it got abandoned nobody quite knows why. Don't take me wrong: I love my JTV 69. It just seemed at the time that it could deliver even further, but that never got to happen. Anyway, I'm sticking with the sounds I love the most - even that means missing out on Workbench. And that's definitely on 1.71.
  6. Has anyone here tried the Tremmory system yet? http://www.guitarsupgrade.de/en_US If yes, what's your thoughts on it? I'm thinking of going with this one for my JTV 69. Would like to confirm which size would be the best fit though. I'm not sure if it'd be the smaller (71mm) or the mid-sized one (76mm). From the image attached and the following instructions would anyone be able to help me picking up the correct size? I'm not the most guitar-tech savy guy on the planet and I live in Brazil, so I don't want to mess it up. =D "it is imperative to check the length between the tremolo block and the spring claw to ensure that the Tremmory system fits the length of your guitar. For this purpose the free space between the spring claw and the tremolo block must be measured subtracting 3-5mm." (taken from the manual: http://www.guitarsupgrade.de/WebRoot/Store20/Shops/81533687/MediaGallery/Tremmory_Einbaueinleitung_EN.pdf ) Should I go with the smaller one then? I'd also like to know if the adjusting screw would fit into the cavity of the springs compartment if I wanted to keep it closed. I've read one review from a guy saying he wasn't able to close the lid on his guitar anymore. But I'm assuming this must vary from model to model. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  7. I'd definitely love to see something like a VDI wireless gadget avalable for Variax-Helix integration someday. Would pay that much for it, if it proved to be reliable (for years to come) and worth the investment.
  8. Cool, thanks everyone. I'm waiting to grab a Helix Floor or LT unit myself, and then I'll buy the Native to go along. Definitely enjoyed what I've been able to demo with the trial version.
  9. I'm having the same issue. Could some of you guys demonstrate grafically what the solution was? I'm not sure what you're calling "third contact" and such. Sorry, not the most handy guy here (at least with eletronics). Will appreciate any help!
  10. Sorry to bring this topic back from the dead but... Is this still an unresolved issue with the Helix Native software for Mac users? I got the free trial version and had this same error happen to me the second time I tried to open it up. The workaround described in this topic (deleting the Session Token number) worked fine, but I'm really not very enthusiastic about spending money on bugged software. Specially if it happens just the same for paid users.The problem was reported in October 2018, if it's still unresolved by now (July 2020) this doesn't give a very optimistic message about Line 6's commitment to it - even though it DOES sound great, what's the use if it breaks my sessions every time? I hope they got that fixed. Will appreciate any feedback on this, even after so much time...
  11. I know that this can sound a bit displaced or even as a redundant idea somehow, but what are your guys thoughts about using Universal Audio's OX top box both as an attenuator for the DT 50 2x12 combo amp and as a studio tool? I'm aware there are cheaper options as far as attenuator options on the market go. But UA's OX would also give me an alternate cabinet modelling system - which, at least by what I heard online, appears to offer better results then the ones I was (so far) able to get from Line 6's overcomplicated - IMO - Dream Rig ecosystem. I gotta say the review that the Andertons did of it (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQ9k1jZ-gzQ) really made quite an impression on me. Depending on the results I might even drop my POD HD500 (I'm already thinking about moving back to a real pedalbord anyway) and stick with just the UA's piece of gear complementing my dream rig (JTV 69 + DT amp). Any thoughts on this?
  12. Hey guys, I'm about to update my DT 50 212 soon, so I've been reading this old thread (and others): http://line6.com/supportarchivenew/thread/89020/ Just wanted to check if I can do this update from my USB/MIDI keyboard controller (an AKAI MPK 61). It has both MIDI In and MIDI Out ports. Does anyone know if that would work? Or should I get a dedicated interface for this (something like that M-Audio Uno one)? If the keyboard works (hooked up to the computer via USB), then I'm assuming I'll need 2 MIDI cables connecting: DT 50 MIDI In -> AKAI Midi Out DT 50 MIDI Out -> AKAI MIDI In. Is that correct? Has anyone succeeded performing the firmware update from a keyboard controller before? I'm always afraid of doing these firmware updates on my Line 6 gear... I can't afford to "brick" my amp., since I'm very far from any Line 6 service center. Any help will be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
  13. OK, I get your point. I'm usually more cautious about posting stuff online on forums (without extensively reading other threads first). I clearly panicked (sorry about that), cause this was the first time I wasn't able to get the computer to "see" the guitar. Fortunately for me the interface (which btw I didn't valued much till now) reverted it, but apparently this wasn't enough for other folks around here. For some the guitar really got "bricked" by this process. I think there's plenty evidence on this forum that this reflash process isn't 100% secure and very straightforward as Line 6 probably expected it to be in the first place. It's a shame that sometimes we have to prevent ourselves from getting the latest version of the firmware (and checking the new sounds) in order to keep our instruments "safe". The option to download the firmware before and have it checked by this MD5 tool is cool (though I would like to see it also available for Mac, since I haven't a PC). But I'm not sure if it could prevent me from having anything going wrong with the reflash itself. For now, I'll stick with the 1.71 version that I personally like the best. I didn't tried the more recent ones though. PS1: Lollipop is very silly indeed. But it certainly made me laugh. PS2: God, Dog, Zorg, whatever fits your need, man... it was just an expression ;) PS3: Anyway, I've just marked the thread as solved.
  14. Yes Charlie. I also did that, based on your suggestion from the other thread. In fact I've downloaded all the firmware versions to my computer and from now on whenever I need to do the reflash it will be directly from the file and plugged into the interface. Thanks for the help guys!
  15. False alarm, guys! I was able to connect the JTV using the Line 6 Interface and then a new reflash resolved the issue. Thank God :) Anyway... don't know how to delete this thread. Hopefully it can help someone in the future. The message here is: "Don't despair" :D
