  1. Thank you phil_m, that's a pro tip and I can find use for both options. Cheers!
  2. I want to hit the toe switch to engage the wah and boost simultaneously. I know the foot switches can do this, but when I attempt to assign exp1 toe switch, it also is using the position of the expression pedal to engage the boost. So when I hit the toe switch, the wah and boost come on, but then as I rock the position on exp1, it disengages the boos at whatever position is set in the bypass menu. I want it to ignore position and only activate with the toe switch. I'm using an eq to create the boost. Thanks
  3. I am trying to use my MD20 as a mixer for a livestream. I have the driver installed, using OSB I can get audio from the MD20 but it appears only 1st two channels, not the stereo mix. Anyone know if there is a setting to only output the stereo bus via USB to pc?
  4. Just found this thread searching for the answer. I hope they fix this.
  5. Where is Don't Force for Model? I see that for tuning, tone and volume, but Variax Model only changes models, no option for don't force. Is it somewhere else?
  6. I am trying to setup Variax settings for the Tone knob so it can be used for parameter control. But I don't want to force a Variax guitar model with the patch. Is there an option for this?
  7. I set the Variax tone control to change amp gain and channel volume. It is a great way to clean up the sound and rolling up the gain to full shred is a sweet effect that the volume knob alone can't quite do. However, the tone knob's effect on the guitar is a little wonky. I have it set to 10 and tone knob locked so that it should not affect the "tone" of the guitar. This is sort of true. But if I change pickups, the tone knob has an effect on the guitar tone as well as changing the parameters I set. So if I rolled off the tone knob intending to only change parameters, then switch pickups, the tone of the guitar gets muddy as if I rolled off the tone. I have to put the knob to full, switch pickups back and fourth and then the tone knob only affects the parameters. Not a very good real-world use. Am I missing something? Here are the settings I use.

  8. Well, I can't seem to get this behavior. Every time I customize the color of the footswitch it overwrites the previous setting. I created two 0db gain blocks, set one to on and one to off. I selected the on block, assigned footswitch and color. Then I went to the off block and did the same thing. Both blocks change states when the footswitch is pressed, but it seems that changing the color on either block will cause the switch to use only that color. Is this the method you use?
  9. My goal is to create an A/B switch for Clean/Crunch tones. I would like to have the switch set to red on crunch and blue on clean. So far I am only able to assign one color for the first state, and then color is not lit for the second state. With more features come more for the wish list.
  10. I got a shock while using the Line6 StageScape mixer with my HD500X JTV rig. It happened when enabling phantom power on the mixer.
  11. I sometimes plug in the 1/4 output to my tuner without disconnecting the VDI, so while I am tuning, both outputs are active. I read in another thread this could potentially overload the circuit and could damage the board. Any truth to this? (JTV-59)
  12. I have the replacement battery holder. The problem is removing the old one. There is one cable that snakes through the control cavity to the main board. I can disconnect it from the main board and verified the new box fixes the problem by hooking it up. So back to my question. The part circled on the picture is where the cable attaches to the battery holder. that cable snakes through the control cavity, but I can't snake it through without removing some other connectors and they look tricky too. Is the part circled a connector or is it permanently affixed to the battery holder?
  13. I have the new battery holder, looking to install it, but I can't tell if this is a connector that can be removed or if I have to snake the cable through the cavity. Check out this post.
  14. If you know who to disconnect this connector, please let me know. I must have a locking tab or release, it does not want to pull straight off. I can't figure it out. Thanks
  15. I came here with a very similar problem and see this post at the top of the Helping my father in law with his Variaxe. His will not power on with a battery. Ordered new battery and charged it, still not powering on or indicating LED status. Tried the battery from my Variaxe, same results. Plugged the guitar into HD500X with data cable, and it does work. So it is something to do with the battery not getting power to the unit. Do you think it would be the battery holder as it was with yours? How hard was it to swap?
