  1. Yes. Thanks. I've been lucky and never really had an update problem.
  2. On the left column I was selecting Helix, middle column Helix Native, right column my OS. Only a link to Native 1.0 would come up. Seems a little screwy to me. But, thanks. I think I had the same problem last update. I'll try remember for next time.
  3. When I go to the L6 site and search for Native download, it only comes up with 1.0. I can't find 1.92. Could someone enlighten me.
  4. The modeling will work with a regular guitar cable. You can't connect to HD Workbench, or update any of the models without a VDI cable. Also, you can't make your JTV talk to a Helix and change with the patches.
  5. The fact that this sale includes significantly reduced U.S. Tyler's that aren't refurbished, tells me that they're looking to clear out the old.
  6. You'll never get confirmation of this from anyone. But sooner or later they will either release a new Variax model, or let the whole thing die. I'm guessing this is a good sign that they aren't going to let Variax die. But who knows how long it might be before we actually see a new model and whether it will shake up the segment or just be more of the same old? My JTV69 was my #1 guitar for about two years. It now hasn't been played for about a year. So I'm ripe to see a new model.
  7. The Stomp has completely different factory presets than Helix floor does, because the Stomp only has six blocks and holds a lot fewer presets than the floor.
  8. You don't have to worry about the hole placement hitting anything. But, I bought two Warmoth necks with the side adjusting Gotoh box and I won't buy another. I managed to crack the one adjusting box, with very little effort, making it useless. So after that I had to remove the neck to make adjustments. The Gotoh box is made of pot metal and not very sturdy, IMO. My next Warmoth neck will have the truss rod adjustment at the headstock.
  9. Are you sending a hot enough signal into the PC to keep the LED light green / orange? That's the first mistake we all seem to make. The PC needs to have a strong signal or it won't sound right.
  10. There are a lot of cab options to play with and if you don't like any of the cabs then you can dive into IR's to send to FOH. I don't know why the cabs sound "ratty" to you. Are you sure you're not sending too strong of a signal to the PC? If the led is constantly flashing red, then you're overdriving the input. I don't get a "crackling" noise with the L6 cable.
  11. I thought I would add that Freeman has some patches that have chord pads. They are unique and sound great, if you have a song they will work for.
  12. I agree. My Variax acoustic results vary by the song. Sometimes it's passable. Other times I can't get a full mid based sound and it's either too boomy or too shrill. Worth having as an option, but not a great option.
  13. Ok, I didn't fully think that statement out. I guess my JTV with a Bubinga fb could be the rarest yet. But I don't think I've heard of any stock JTV necks coming with ebony, unless I missed that.
  14. Interesting. I really thought they were done producing the JTV's. If you actually get the guitar, let us know. Having an ebony FB will make it pretty unique.
  15. Any Strat replacement neck will fit a JTV69. So regardless of whether Warmoth has a "deal" with Line 6 or not, you can buy one of their Strat necks and put it on a JTV69. Just don't have them drill the mounting holes because the spacing is a little different. They charge you $15 for not drilling the holes. If the link works, here's a photo of my Warmoth replacement neck on my JTV69. It's mahogany with Bubinga FB, SS frets, Earvana nut.
