  1. Okay, then I'll go for the JTV-69 (whenever it's available again in Holland...)
  2. Hi there! I 'm planning to buy a Variax guitar but I do not know how to interpret the 'Fully adjustable Tyler-designed tremolo bridge' (for instance of the JTV-69). How good is it compared with the 'Floyd Rose licensed double-locking tremolo system' (of the JTV-89F)? Or is the detuning problem using the tremelo no issue at all, because the Variax wonder-guitar regulates itself? I really don't know and hope you do! Regards, Frederik
  3. So, if I understand you well, it's just a matter of taste: which one looks better to someone and feels better for that person (playability, etc).... And regarding the sound qualities it doesn't matter at all?
  4. I'm planning to buy a Variax electric guitar. But in my head is sparkling continuously a question I cannot get answered: All the Variax guitars are said to be able to perfectly simulate the sound af all famous guitars. Then, why should I bother - regarding the guitar sound - about which Variax guitar I should choose? I mean humbucker or single coil, Shuriken, Standard, James Tyler.....? There is bound to be a simple answer to my question, so please help me out! Regards, Frederik
  5. Thank you all! I didn't know there was response until now. You really helped me a lot!!! Frederik
  6. How to use the mic input on the Helix backpanel? In the manual I can only find the following: '22.MIC IN Plug your microphone in here for processing your vocals or recording to your computer via USB. This XLR jack provides 48V phantom power for studio condenser mics and a variable low cut filter.' But ( for instance) how turn I the phantom power on and off? How turn I thw low cut filter on and off? Can I choose one output cnannel? And so on... Furthermore, when I connected the Helix - with my mic in MIC IN - to my mixer and computer no signal is coming through... I may be stupid, but then for sure I need a little help from my friends... Thanks in advance, Frederik ( By the way, the emoji option her above ain't working neither for me (Safari-user)
  7. PROBLEM SOLVED - more or less... I unwired the Helix: disconnected the USB, guitar input and the stereo outputs. Then I turned it on and the Helix was healed. Next time this happens I will make a more analytic approach and disconnect the wires one by one (and turn the Helix down/on) to determine the connection that may cause this problem.... I hope this will happen soon, because I now I don't trust my Helix anymore.. Thanks all of you who gave me support! If I happen to know exactly what the problem was, I will quote it.
  8. Thanks for your attention. Ik will do that!
  9. If I press or touch any button, nothing happens. Neither when I use all the other knobs of the Helix. The Helix is completely lame. I can only reach it with Helix Native... I forgot to tell that it happened totally out of nothing. I was using the same (fabric) preset for already some days... Now I will try the fabric reset options (Thanks Guru!)
  10. Nothing. Helix is completely unresponsive...
  11. If I press the mode button, nothing happens. Neither when I use all the other knobs of the Helix. The Helix is completely lame. I can only reach it with Helix Native... I forgot to tell that it happened totally out of nothing. I was using the same (fabric) preset for already some days... Now I will try the fabric reset options (Thanks Guru!)
  12. One year ago, more or less, I bought the Helix Floor. Unfortunately I got this unpleasant experience already a few times: I start the Helix and the label fields (the small displays) stay blanco, whereas the main display is functioning well. Of course the possibility this may happen when I have a gig makes me rather nervous... Anyone knows what to do? Regards, Frederik
  13. Thank you for reacting! Some of you mention 'mag pickups', but I only know single coil - and humbucker pickups.... What do you mean with 'mag' ??!!
  14. Hi fellow guitarists, I'm planning to buy a Variax guitar. But if Line 6 claims that all Variax guitar can simulate all electric guitars, then why should I bother about choosing a single coil or humbucker pick-up?
  15. Hi fellow guitarists, Is it possible to get a good Fender Jaguar sound with a Variax guitar? (I' am planning to buy a Variax guitar...)
  16. Me toooo! > 'Hi! Very old thread I know but I'd love to get a dl of the aforementioned Jaguar and SG variax models if anyone still has them... :)' Please, make my day!
  17. Thanks a lot for your nice reactions. I was away for some time, but I will seriously consider your advices. If I find something that suits me well, I wil let you know.
  18. Is there a handy way to organise your user presets in HX Edit. I know you can copy/paste, but that reminds me of playing Ruby Cube: what a job! That looks silly anno 2021... Perhaps it is possible to export the user sets somewhere on jour PC, rearrange them outside HX Edit and then import them back? I hope so!!! Best regards, Frederik
