    Does Line6 even test software?

    I am having the dickens of a time using HD500x Edit on my Macbook Pro with Mojave. The app crashes quite a bit, and is sluggish beyond usability. Is any one else having issues with it? I can't even drag and drop items to the different paths, or when I save or transfer, it will randomly crash mid transfer. All I can say is wow.
  2. If you haven't already done so, reboot your computer. After I installed everything, that did the trick for me.

    Line 6 Software gone downhill?

    @pianoguyy You are so correct. Let me also state that this is a testament to the quality of their hardware. It is superb and IMHO is second to none. The fact that I have their hardware working FLAWLESSY for over 10 years speaks volumes. I have no need to upgrade because it does what I want and when I want. I guess if they make hardware to withstand the tests of time, I just thought it would make sense for them to do the same with their software. @cruisinon2 I was able to finally get my Workbench working, it was that with the new version of the software, I must use the Variax USB dongle, whereas before I was just able to access my Variax via my POD Xt Live interface. Seeing that it isn't USB 3.0 compatible, that is the reason I was seeing timeout issues.

    Line 6 Software gone downhill?

    I have a PodXt Live and a JTV-69. Both really nice pieces of equipment!! However, I'm stuck with what's on them because I'm a Mac user and upgraded to High Sierra. Line 6 Edit for editing and saving my channel banks requires Java6 and even if you install it, High Sierra will start going bonkers with Java AWT errors when using it. What else can I use to manage/backup/edit my Pod Xt Live? Now, when it comes to Workbench HD, sure it all looks like it will work, but when it first starts up, it times out trying to download the presets. When I try to change body style or make some other change, it just freezes. This happens on multiple computers, one running Sierra and the other High Sierra. It just seems like the software quality and support has gone downhill. I can't make any changes to either pieces of equipment. Heck, I even tried on someone's Windows 10 machine and Workbench did the exact same thing, and I couldn't even get Line 6 Edit installed on it. To Line 6: Look, your equipment is great, it lasts a REALLY long time. But, you just can't forsake software when the operating systems advance. If you don't see it being cost beneficial to do so, then open up the software and allow the open source community to manage it. I spent my entire holiday trying to edit/customize my equipment settings and got absolutely nowhere. Any advice from out there in the ether? Any similar experiences?
  5. Does anyone know if it's possible to configure the PodXT live so that if I turn on one effect, say my amp, that it will turn off my delay (or other effect)? What I'm wanting essentially is when I turn on my delay, it goes turns off my amp effect, and when I turn on my amp effect, it will turn off my delay. So, "clean with delay" and "distortion without delay" Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
