  1. After years away started using Variax again. Had to download Work Bench old version not the HD. I've hit the JAVA wall. It will not install. Java Envoiromental blah blah. I have uninstalled Java and Workbench and reinstalled and still no joy. Which Java do I need as 1.75 Workbench will load load with the recommended Java Runtime Environment 1.6. Any help please? Side note. Sick to death of the whole " Aint got the new version?" Tough attitude. Line 6 are obligated to offer support. It's how they sell it. My head it done today on this issue....

    Helix Edit glitch?

    Okay I downloaded my Freman bundle so now have factory setlists 1 and 2. With Freman now have User 1 and 2. The side bar for some reason will not scroll with mouse or any other key. It seems stuck. It scrolls down below User 3 and 4 etc. But will not slide up. I can clearly see the bar should scroll to reveal User 1 and 2 Setlists but it doesn’t move. Is this a known problem? I have to access from the unit. Don’t know how but will try. I closed editor and reopened it. Same. The setlist scroll doesn’t move and is stuck. Any help please is much welcomed. Seems really strange

    oops.... I bought an Axe FX III.... but...

    Opposite, just got Helix, as backup to my AX8. Fractal with 250 plus amps, eternal update and tone. Helix out of the box great tone in minutes. Fractal customer service totally kicks Line 6 service into touch. Before the comments fly, HD500 HD500X Bass XT Variax bass, Variax 700. You can't say I haven't tried. Let's see how this goes. Tonewise though, not a lot you haven't heard. Both units are awesome, but the learning curve for Fractal is serious rocket science. And I had the AX2 until three months ago! Honest truth 250 amps? If you want obscure and for me unusable Fractal have the edge. I'm keeping both but my eye on on Line 6 customer service if I need help.

    oops.... I bought an Axe FX III.... but...

    AX8 man....gonna find out what this HELIX is in couple of days. AX8 is a monster, but I had an HD500X so curious. If one dies, Ive got a standby I suppose. Can't wait. Question though. I read that the GT 1000 not all the amps are ARES. Are there amps from the HD series on HELIX? or completely rebuilt from scratch?

    Give up with Line 6

    Bit bitter there sweetie?...Why cant you afford one? thats the usual case

    Give up with Line 6

    Had a HD500 seven years ago..Fractal ever since but bought HD500X as back up. I have been downloading custome tone tone forever. This afternoon despite it showing I own HD500x and amp packs in my purchases. It wont let me download jack. Why? I have to register product again. Honest? I cant be bothered anymore. Even when I logged in to customtone, an error showed, but still logged me in. This time it won't let me download any patches. LINE 6..listen. My Variax is for sale as I cannot use the edit anymore ( cant even remember the name) now this. You don't care. New customers are more valued than loyal long time. You can shove your proucts. Was even stupid enough to look at the HELIX. I'm not a Fractal fanboy, but the software works. End of

    Give up with Line 6

    How can I show I already registered nearly six products. Cant be bothered as it shows only two now. Why? it worked yesterday. Today it doesnt. Open a ticket. Problems can arise and thats cool. These lot make it a habit

    Give up with Line 6

    Fed up is exactly what I mean. Line 6 software. Wrong password? If youre happy? Good luck

    Give up with Line 6

    Funny but muppets like you are on the Fractal forum too. Read it prat. My Varaiax 700 doesnt work anymore and Ive tried on here. Now can't use Customtone. Yeah, after having Variax 700, Variax Bass, HD500, HD500X, Bass POD..yeah bet theyre ecstatic. But thats why we're on here and not the Boss GT..Oh? Where did that go?

    Moving amp in chain

    Searched high and low. Why are some amps placed in the middle? Others right at the beginning? Tried to move some Custometone patch amps in the chain, but they don't go anywhere. Can this be done?
  13. medbad5150

    Moving amp in chain

    Yeah cheers mate, that’s what I thought. So why are some amps middle? Others at either end of chain?

    Variax Workbench

    Many thanks. But that’s what I mean. It’s a lottery. Surely Line 6 are obligated to keep us updated. I mean what I say. Was looking at James Tyler Variax and Helix. But when the new kid in town is released. The old are dropped like a hot stone. No thanks..cheers I’ll do my best with your help, but my Line 6 days are over. Grateful for your efforts and help mate.

    Variax Workbench

    Blimey! Many thanks I will try when I get home tonight. Gotta be honest though. Spent time on the JAVA and downloade many versions. Hope this is the one. Cheers mate

    Variax Workbench

    Proper grateful for your input mate. Told you I’ve spent whole evenings with no success. Many thanks

    Workbench on Windows 10?

    Line 6 can shove it. I’ve just hit this wall too. I shouldn’t have to be a Harvard IT specialist to use their product! They couldn’t give a toss! Mine isn’t the only comment and probably not the last. My Variax is up for sale

    Variax Workbench

    Mate, it’s something to do with Java. Also Line 6 not updating software. I’ve given up. Absolute disgrace. We’re not talking about ancient, but a product which is still in use. I have a Axe Fx 2 regular updates, sometimes too many! Was looking at Tyler Variax and Helix but they can shove it! It’s gonna be sold. I’m no slouch on IT and I have deleted, reinstalled, my laptop is exhausted! Cheers mate. If there was a link to bypassing the Java issue. They should at least inform us. Cheers though mate. At least you tried.

    Variax Workbench

    Windows 10 but Line 6 stopped after Windows 8 apparently. This is the newest version. Cheers for reply though
  20. Updated mine today and saw that 64 presets were meant to be added. My user two has presets where it didn't before. Any idea? I've googled and searched on here. Keep seeing something about Global settings and recalibrating the pedal. But what's that gotta do with presets? Why have some added and rest in hyperspace? I'm sorry I'm a bit late to the party but last 5 years it's been the Fractal show... Trying again tomorrow

    Variax presets from 2.62? Where are they?

    Crazy! Given up. Ignored the Update Flash message. Pulled out power and plugged in again expecting a dead unit. Not only did it start but the VARIAX setlist now shows. Plugged in. Guitar tones sound awesome without tweaking. Now gonna calibrate and not gonna update forever! Thanks bloke you’ve helped me twice now. Gotta be honest. It shows this pedal is dying. Forum help is non existent. People accuse Fractal of being fanboys but the Axe with constant updates keeps everyone on their toes. This was bought as an emergency in case Axe dies on me. Very grateful for your help mate

    Variax presets from 2.62? Where are they?

    Fella I proper appreciate your help. I just tried. Holding LEFT arrow and then inserting power cable...over and over. It just showed my patches. Then searched and someone said RIGHT which I did. Low and behold restarted. Now staring at a screen for ten minutes which reads. UPDATE FLASH with nothing happening. Dude I had the HD500 with no issues. Fractal for last five, updates a dream. Had this two days and becoming a nightmare. Instructions even state HOLD LEFT with no effect. I’m proper lost. Starting to regret it. Irony is my Axe2 is sitting right beside the HD almost mocking me!

    HD500x into QSC K12 speaker

    Well packed the AX2 away as my HD500x came today. Literally side by side took lead out of Ax2 and plonked into equivalent output on the HD. I was waiting for the jump for joy feeling as I still think the HD can be tweaked to near perfection, I'm not a Fractal fanboy. Hearing the chord. Gutted. Terrible, fizzy and either way to fizzy or boom bassy. I checked on forum and set output to Studio/Direct, aha I thought as it was set on combo. Not a bit of difference. I've read the whole unblance, balanced cable into QSC. Honest I've used one cable from the Ax2 to QSC beautifully. If I have to have miles of cable and loads of inputs I might as well send it back. Other thing I thought was. Fractal v HD500? I know as I own one but still had to tweak forever but as least the presets were pretty good. Sorry for moaning but I had a HD500 years ago maybe the difference is bigger than I thought. Next thing to try tomorrow is disable the cabs. I read somewhere not to use the cabs in patches with the QSC K12 is this correct? If thats the case I will be over the moon. Can't wait to get it going properly. PS I cant find the Loaded Bundle in the setlists. Unless owner deleted them. Thanks to you guys he gifted them to me, so maybe I have to load them in again

    Factory Reset Fully Loaded Bundle

    I’m back here after years away. I’m a Fractal man too but loved the HD500. Now have a 500x. If I was to Factory Reset. Would I lose the bundle purchased and loaded? Cheers for any help
