  1. Just going to add a "Me too" here - I just bought my Variax 7 days ago and last night upgraded from the factory-shipped 1.7 to 2.10. I nearly wept. The strat sounds horrible. I immediately rolled back to 1.9 which I hear everyone is at (who dislikes the current models). 2.1 spank- Its tinny, thin and grating- like mix between the banjo and a guitar patch. 1.7 was much fuller and authentic. Alot of vintage strats sound bad. But we buy these guitars to get the best of the best vintage sounds. I really hope they correct this. I'm having such a buzz kill. I just bought a new item and when the newest updates are applied it sounds awful. Its like buying a corvette to find out there is an ECU update that gives MOST people more horsepower and a better exhaust note. But to YOUR corvette, it does nothing for speed and makes it sound like a Chevette lol. <== Tears of a clown.
  2. I see. That makes a bit more sense. Thanks!
  3. I tried searching but I just can't find an answer. I've loaded Monkey and Workbench onto my laptop. I installed all the stuff from Monkey (firmware, drivers etc). But maybe I'm missing something. One instruction from the Workbench Pilot guide mentions having the latest "Line 6 Audio/MIDI Driver". What is it and where do I get it? Do I need to pick some product OTHER than JVT Variax and the Variax USB Interface to download the driver? If its not the driver then maybe I misunderstand the set up. SHOULD I hear anything? I'm using headphones into the laptop. It seems pointless to give me an interface and software and no way to hear the tweaks I am making. Sorry if this is redundant. I've been searching for a solution for an hour to no avail. Green lights on both ends btw. That seems to be a common troubleshooting question.
  4. Well there you go, sport - get to editing and post your set. Then compare this one to yours. Let us know which is better to your ears =)
  5. I've read that the pre-amps in HD500 are the best to use with DT50 and DT25, so I've put a setlist together with all of the pres as a baseline for my patch creation. The problem I encountered was that the volumes varied WILDLY and I kept blowing up my ears going from the quietest amp (Hiway-100 apparently) and a Treadplate for example. Of course one amp is louder than the other, but for home use, or testing, having these patches be leveled is a must So I've gone through and leveled out (with the MIXER setting) all 30 of the pre amps to be very roughly the same loudness. There is definitely some variance. If anyone cares to correct them more properly, please do so and post the update. In this setlist, Hiway-100 is the quietest amp- I have the db setting on the mixer maxed, so I used that setting as the baseline for loudness of all the other amps. Very unscientific, but now I don't get ringing ears if I'm switching between. Hope this helps. DT25 30 pre-Amps-leveled.zip
