  1. I know how to access the 2 and 4 models - i just pointed out, that if you aim to create a 'kill switch' effect, you'll have to consider carefully where to put the 'blank'. E.g. if you assign the 'blank' to position 5, it can't be used when the Alt. Tuning knob is engaged ...
  2. You can store 5 presets in each bank - but the JTV-59 switch is 3-way. Have this in mind, if you want to create a 'kill switch' effect.
  3. Thank you for your input - after a few gigs we ended up doing exactly the same thing: always 70 'on' first, scan for frequencies, then 10 'on' - it works :-)
  4. One important difference is that the 75 has no foot switch. To be able to mute and cycle through scenes with your foot, you'll need an extra switch for the 75 ...
  5. I've been using my G70 for a few months now - no drop outs. Been doing a lot of rehearsals and gigs - no problems whatsoever :-) Now the bass player in my band has acquired a G10. At our first gig with both G's running, I got a lot of drop outs. Sometimes for just one second, sometimes for 5-10 seconds. Eventually there was no sound from my G70. Bass player shut down and restarted the G10, while my G70 was 'on'. Improvement for at few minutes, then the G70 drop outs came back. We ended up with the bass player using a cable instead of the G10 - and my G70 was OK again ... What is the correct procedure for making G70 and G10 work together? G70 has latest firmware on both receiver and transmitter - and seems to work OK, except when the G10 is 'on' ...
  6. The JTV59 has a 3 position toggle switch (like an LP type guitar) but you can still asign 5 favorites to the Custom bank. 3 of your favorites are chosen directly with the 3 way switch - accessing the remaining 2 favorites requires pushing the alt tuning knob - like this: Model 1 = 3-way toggle switch upper position Model 2 = 3-way toggle switch middle position Model 3 = 3-way toggle switch lower position Model 4 = 3-way toggle switch upper position + alt tuning knob engaged Model 5 = 3-way toggle switch lower position + alt tuning knob engaged - not as easy as using a 5-position switch - but it can be done. And everything can be programmed with Workbench HD. You might also consider a Standard, that has the familiar Strat-style 5-position switch.
  7. You can use a standard pedalboard PSU that supplies 9V DC power with center-negative polarity. The 'Pilots Guide' that comes with the G70 recommends 500mA - but the 'Advanced guide' (which I checked before buying) recommends 350mA only. However, the G70 works fine with my Cioks PSU that includes a 9V / 400mA outlet.
  8. My Polytune isn't too keen on tuning when modelling is turned on - I always turn off modelling and use the mags for tuning ...
  9. You are right, of course - in theory, less string-tension gives a little extra fret buzz and affects the intonation. But hardly audible, to my ears (well trained after +40 years with guitar playing) - and no issue when playing live. One thing which is much more audible, is the effect of modelling/alt tuning. Sounds great in a live situation - ALMOST like the real thing, but not 100 % ... Have you tried Eb-tuning? Been doing it for many years on my LP - no problem. With 0.10's.
  10. Never needed new set-up when going from standard E-tuning to Eb-tuning and back again - on JTV-59, Standard, or LP, Strat, and Tele for that matter. And yes, you can use alternate tuning when in modelling mode - but I use both mags and modelling, so the answer is Eb-tuning - for ALL songs, when we do live gigs, that is ... and the singer is happy :-)
  11. To help the singer of our band a little bit we always tune half a step down, i.e. Eb tuning. It works very well with my JTV-59 and my Standard, no need for new setup or anything. And no problems with alt tunings - they are all relative to the actual tuning of the guitar.
  12. When I first got my JTV-59, I connected it to a Morley ABY switch. The switch has 1/4" outputs, one went to my amp, the other went directly to the PA mixing desk - it worked very well. (the desk inputs are xlr, so I used a 1/4"/xlr cable from switch to desk). However, to 'beef up' the acoustic sounds from the JTV-59 I have now inserted a Palmer DI box between the ABY switch and the PA. Now I can lower the gain on the mixing desk channel which makes the acoustic sounds better to my ears - but apart from that, the JTV-59 works very nicely hooked up directly to the PA. I use 6- and 12-string acoustic guitar sounds as well as resonator and sitar sounds. Sometimes electric guitar through my amp, sometimes acoustic guitar through the PA - and sometimes even acoustic 12-string both at the same time (the ABY switch allows me to do that). Great variety in sounds ;-) Hope my comments are useful.
  13. Started out with backing up my patches - then updating the Monkey. Updated firmware and Workbench HD to 2.10 - everything seemed OK ... Now patches cannot be written to JTV-59 - error 80007104 Reflashed firmware and reinstalled Workbench several times. Tried to reload back-up patches - still cannot be written to JTV-59. Ended up rolling back to 2.0 - first attempt of reloading back-up patches seemed to run OK, but left JTV-59 completely blank. Next try was successful, now my old patches are back in my JTV-59. Mac OS Mavericks USB interface (no POD) JTV-59 Fully charged battery (I have two, tried with both) Where did I go wrong?
  14. Thanks - exactly the same bug I have tried to explain in my earlier post ... string levels are very inconsistent, too - can be tweaked though. Anyone experienced the 'dead' B-string (no treble) when using the 'neutral body'?
