it seems to be a common problem how to transform the acoustic guitar models provided by the Variax into a useful sound at a live performance. I am now trying for one year but it's still not satisfying, especially compared to the sound delivered by a "real" acoustic guitar with a decent built-in preamp. When I'm playing the Variax acoustic models, I supply the signal directly into the PA using a DI-Box, since it is not useful to run the acoustic modeling through an E-guitar amplification. Fot this, I have an A/B-Switch on my floorboard. But still, going throuth the PA with the acoustic modeling doesn't create the right sound, it is a "thin" sound without "belly" and very sensitive to heavy strumming, the latter often creating a clipping noise. So one has to strum very gently, which sometimes isn't very much fun.
The acoustic guitar modeling aims at the reproduction of a natural acoustic guitar sound like you would get sitting in a room and playing. But what we want to have is the sound we get when we play an acoustic guitar on stage, so the critical thing would be the built-in modeling of a decent acoustic preamp (e.g. Fishman). Any idea why line6 does not do so?
