    Variax Workbench for windows 10

    It should work. It works on my Windows 10 laptop.

    Variax 500 died

    Good deal! It's nice to have that kind of support.
  3. I use VDI when I can but often I am going into an amp and then I use the battery. Never had a problem doing that.
  4. I would not ever use the supplied wrenches. They are crap. Way too soft and they strip easily.
  5. Did you loosen the strings first? Just a suggestion. I don't own a 59 but I do own a Les Paul.
  6. Buy an aftermarket one. I got mine years ago from guitarcable.com. Never had a problem with it.

    Variax Guitars Nitrocellulose Lacquer ?

    Don't think they do.

    Helix was stolen - need to locate Serial #

    If you registered it with Line6 they have the serial number. They could probably tell if someone else ever tries to register it.
  9. You could get your own Li battery and install it but you would not have the necessary low voltage protection for the battery. I thought of doing this as I use lots of Lipo batteries for my RC hobby but I never bothered since I use the VDI cable anyway most of the time.

    USB connection causing NOISE with 4CM

    I have tried others in the past and they were not fast enough. It's not trivial to make an isolation unit that will work at these speeds.

    USB connection causing NOISE with 4CM

    Flotsam71, which one did you get? Is it the $79 High speed one? I tried an isolator a few years ago with my HD500X and it did not work at all.
  12. Swapping pickups should be easy as long as they are standard passive pickups. I remember seeing wiring diagrams here but you can just connect them the same As the ones you remove.
  13. I believe there is a relay in there somewhere that switches out the mags when you switch in modeling. maybe it is bad.

    Helix 2.20 volume control jump in levels

    There will always be plenty of first adopters out there. I will wait for them to stumble through the update and report back. Sometimes there is a big problem. I don't mind little bugs - they will be there. I just don't want to be on the first wave. Sometimes the whole update gets recalled or updated again in a few days if there is a major problem.

    Helix 2.20 volume control jump in levels

    Rule number one! Never do an update the day it comes out! Wait for feedback here to see how it goes and to see what kind of problems it may cause. Let others be the leaders - be a fast follower.
