    Variax 600 workbench HD connection

    you need variax workbench software, not workbench HD, that is incompatible.
  3. TheRealZap

    Is variax dead?

    No, But the floyd rose version was always a limited run. the variax standard and shuriken models are the new ones... i wouldn't be surprised to learn all the JTV models are going to get harder to find.
  4. TheRealZap

    How do I update Helix Native?

    yes its free.
  5. TheRealZap

    Store Helix Preset on Variax

    Not possible. At All. No How. No Way.

    I could have sworn someone necroposted a thread from 1997... nope!

    pod farm 2.5 with x3 live

    Gearbox is still the editor... pod farm is just a plugin available for use. you cant use pod farm for what you used gearbox for.

    Problems with PC USB sound to POD HD500X

    you probably need updated drivers for your usb or chipset... i have used an app like slim drivers (google it) to find and update the drivers in the past and it's always helped.
  10. only alternative to the USB Variax interface is a XT Live, or X3 Live (or pro) pod. trying anything else will likely damage the variax. i don't believe that the older models came with the interface... it was a 100$ addon.... the James tyler variaxes (59,69,89) did come with it.
  11. you need gearbox: https://line6.com/software/ make sure you tell it you have windows 7 (the last officially supported operating system) works fine in windows 10.
  12. TheRealZap

    Clicking noise when playing

    jitter... you basically have something else on your machine interrupting the usb stream. you might try removing other usb devices... or updating the chipset drivers for your system ive found a utility like slim drivers (google it) can help find and update these unknown corners of your operating system.

    Power supply for XPS A/B

    The correct power supply is very important the output is AC not DC like most aftermarket power supplies that could damage the guitar. What you need is a Line6 px2 power supply.
  14. the FBV control only changes what it controls on your computer... pod farm etc.... the express pedals cannot bank, or loop (i have not verified on spider V, but could not on previous spiders) you need the shortboard MKII or FBV3 you can likely find the shortboard used for about the price of the express.... but yes.... there is a reason it costs more than the express.. and you've found a couple of them.
  15. they all have a license for pod farm version 1.... version 2 is different. try version 1 if you dont want to spend the money on the upgrade.

    ...Whoa- Pending update (2.50) pinned above

    same organization as before except when you select reverbs for example you will now see MONO STEREO LEGACY your selection will produce relevant results.
  17. TheRealZap

    ...Whoa- Pending update (2.50) pinned above

    you can see mono stereo details for the M series effects here: http://line6.com/support/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_id=474
  18. TheRealZap

    ...Whoa- Pending update (2.50) pinned above

    Legacy is legacy... no sub categories for mono/stereo they didn't exist in those categories in the M-Series, we just knew some things were stereo and most weren't....
  19. TheRealZap

    ...Whoa- Pending update (2.50) pinned above

    existing reverbs moved to legacy area.... but it wont affect your current patches.
  20. TheRealZap

    ...Whoa- Pending update (2.50) pinned above

    in the M series most effects were either mono or stereo effects and although i have not personally checked them all but i believe thats still the case
  21. TheRealZap

    ...Whoa- Pending update (2.50) pinned above

    1. Yes, the controversy part was people THINKING that bring M series stuff would somehow have taken away from making new models... wasn't the case. 2. all the tones get migrated correctly so none of your current tones change... the "legacy" category appears along side stereo/mono/legacy when selecting effects... it take no more or less steps to get to them... just a slightly different path. I think its a great update, and the reverbs are pretty sweet!
  22. did you actually purchase a license? if you got a free license or was included... .might just be for the plugin version.... or if you picked up a used/second hand toneport or pod studio... it may not have qualified for a pod farm 2 license.... try pod farm 1 the product is not garbage.... doesnt sound like you ever used it. license issues, do not define a product.
  23. TheRealZap

    no undo-button or -command for last step changes?

    well yeah... lots of things WOULD be good... i was telling you what it can do.... it would be good if the footswitches gave my feet mini massages as well... but it cant do that.... for things you think WOULD be good... https://line6.ideascale.com/

    Wishlist for Helix II

    might be wishful thinking... just with the LT not having a mic input.. they might think thats a limited use... no reason it couldn't work, but i know they are trying hard to unify the products..... so they dont have a bunch of different scenarios like they did with the pod hd stuff. i don't know anything either way.... just suggesting a possible reason i don't think it will come quickly.

    Anyone Else Underwhelmed?

    far from underwhelmed... sometimes i get option paralysis.... overwhelmed with too many choices and options... just a flip side of the coin. I can easily get something useful out of everything available, but would be easier if it just showed my favorites. :)
