  1. quite long to say, but let me explain whole thing. I have posted about my alt tune warbling sound. Original post: Many good people advised me to go Line6 service or go get ordinary set-up. (Sorry for annoying you people and staff) 1. First, there's no Line6 service center in my country. One official distributor exists, but they said they don't provide service for JTV, because they don't treat JTV currently. They just can order JTV parts and replace them. So, no way to get a test and diagnosis by authorized and experienced person. That's why I entirely rely on this forum.(So kind of you people, thank you) 2. Second, I have real buzz on my guitar. So I strongly believe it is the cause of alt-tune issue like forum's advice. I brought my guitar to best, most well-known, skillful and kind repair shops. I showed them alt tune sound and of course they don't know how to solve it! -One of shops guessed it is mix of real frequency and alt frequency. So out of his ability. -Another one said it is variax system issue so go line6. But he knew there's nowhere to get official service I said forget about it just fix this buzz (asked normal set-up) They commonly diagnosed that -nut is little low on low string (6th and 5th) -frets are uneven -buzz can occur with low action I asked them please replace nut or leveling fret or make action higher or do whatever to fix buzz. But they denied because nut is not too low and whole set-up is quite ok, so nothing won't change. I don't still understand. They caught problems but said nothing will change? I was disappointed there and got home back. Go back to my original question about alt tune warbling, I think it was OK first time, but after I change my set-up, it started, I guess. Not sure for that, but if it's true, set-up is THE solution. And in my opinion, leveling fret is the most priority to fix buzz. Let me bring my guitar to a new rising star of repair shops. It is getting famous, so I hope it accepts set-up. I won't touch my guitar until then. But what if it also denies? I have no idea. Sorry for making you guys angry and annoyed. Thank you always.
  2. haha thank you man. I think my low level english fluency bothered people. I got my guitar to some repair shop to fix buzz and whole set up. But all of them denied because they dont know variax and said nothing to fix(even still buzz happens). So I am ordered some self fret leveling and dressing tools and waiting for them.
  3. thank you! I read some thread that helps reducing buzz or warble? for variax
  4. I just watched this video to listen to Helix sound. There's a blue sponge beside nut. I think it is on the strings not under. How can it stick to that position?
  5. thank you always. I orderd new PC board to replace and am waiting for it. But keep finding solution by myself, by getting some help from forum.
  6. are plink and warbling different?? I have alt tune warbling sound problem, but making body-style neutral doesnt work to me.
  7. what about transplanting jtv69 to 24 frets custom guitar? is it gonna make intonation issue?
  8. im planning to transfer variax to custom guitar. some in my country did this and they satisfied. is there people in US satisfied and how about this forum's opinion?
  9. some says VDI sounds worse. But I dont know. People got different ears.
  10. Please, if you can contact official Service center in your country,let me know what they say, and how to solve this problem. I contacted Service Center in my country, but they are not actively supporting me, because they dont treat this JTV, but new Variax Standard
  11. I look through manuals but couldnt find it. can I use alter tune with my physical mag picpups?
  12. Hi, I'm using Bias fx desktop with my JTV-69. I'm considering now whether upgrading bias fx version (desktop to professional) to use more drive pedals and amps or buying pod hd500. Is there anyone using bias fx pro version with variax ?? what do you think? There are 2 choices. 1. upgrade bias (100$) + buy spare bettery (50$) = 150$ 2. buy pod hd500 used one = 200$ I cannot choose between those two options. Please give your advice and suggestion. on Sound quality and conviniently making tone
  13. I use only Audio interface and VSTi (Bias FX). well, I can use pod hd500, but I think I won't use most functions that spaces big area. simple is the best to me. As I am not a professional guitarist, audio interface and PC are enough. but because of the battery concern, I am searching ebay now. If I win the bid cheaper than I expected, I will get it. But now, I'm not sure whether spare battery or HD500.
  14. you mean this one? I found that about two weeks ago, but I don't know how exactly to use. I use audio interface, is this signal path right? (1. guitar-VDI cable-footswitch-1/4" cable-audio interface-PC) (2. guitar-1/4" cable-footswitch-1/4" cable-audio interface-PC) I have no idea what XLR balanced cable for.
