  1. I have to admit I thought it would be something more. Something like a new DT Amp but I do like the concept. This thing could be fun to play around with, being able to edit it with an iOS device is quite cool. I just downloaded the app for iPhone and played around a little bit. You can play around, see the list of different amps / fx / etc. Quite nice. I guess it won't be an "amp" for for though it will have its market but what I really would like to see is line6 offering the new cloud / community / upload/download environment for us existing pod/dt/ variax owners.




  2. Yes, stagescape direction sounds reasonable. Wouldn't be a bad thing to have FRFR considering the acoustic models of variax needing such thing. I really just hope that they will have pre and post tube sections included. I'm pretty sure it will also have line6 link and will be compatible with the existing PODs when they get a firmware update. They wouldn't completely renew the whole dreamrig leaving existing POD owners out.

  3. you're correct... usb interface does not power guitar...

    and it is kind of a hassle... but all new JTV's shipped with it, and it's a better option than holding back the update until all the pods are working....

    pod access will surely be added....


    Yes, you're right. My HD experience wasn't that smooth but as you said I'm happy, too, they released the HD update and let's just hope they' fix those issues with the PODs.

  4. Ok, now that I got that usb box to work I can connect to Workbench HD. Next problem: The usb-box does not seem to power the JTV, mags are working, variax part isn't. Seems like I have to use the battery that is currently not loaded. Hmm, maybe it's just me but having to use the usb box instead of my POD HD 500 brings nothing but problems to my "dream rig". Have to wait some hours until the battery is loaded to test the new stuff.

  5. aaaah THX that solved my problem!! I think that Information should be found in Workbench HD


    Sweet - to my ears, the 12 strings sound WAY better.  Thanks Line6!


    BTW, everyone may know this already, but it was news to me.  You need to plug a 1/4 inch cable into your Variax when using the Variax USB interface via VDI - which Variax Workbench HD requires.  Without the 1/4 plugged in, the variax won't power on.  First time I needed to do this as I usually access the Variax through the HD500(x now) USB.  

  6. Thanks for the quick answer. The green light (usb-side) is constantly on but there is a red light blinking on the vdi-side.

    Monkey found the USB deviced and even let me update the Firmware (though the version was the same). Maybe the VDI cable is the problem but I just tested it with my hd 500.


    i'd double check connections and usb ports...

    the new version of workbench is way improved... although i wish the pods worked now... but that's coming.....
