  1. Double check that the mags level is turned off either within the Helix patch and check the configuration in the Variax itself with the Workbench HD editor. This is also assuming your playback level is high because if you're listen at lower volumes you might be hearing the strings them self if that makes sense to you. Jd
  2. Questions are do you want to change the existing 4 amps the DT25 does out of the box or will you see yourself wanting change say for example the high gain amp for some other amp? How long would you stick to that? Also are you using the amp stand alone or with a HD500(x) or Helix? Jd
  3. I replaced 2 of the 3 pickups on my JTV-69s Variax Guitar. Here are the photos of the process. ***** THIS IS AFTER WARRANTY INSTALLATION. DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK ***** Also follow Partev Sarkissian's advise on pickup replacements. Here is link to the photos. Hope this works. Let me know if you have any questions. Jd
  4. What version of Pod HD500x Edit are you trying to install? As what I see for OS 10.6.8 you should be using version 2.26 from what I read on Line 6 download page. Also what type of Mac are you trying to install this on? Jd
  5. How are you connected to the Variax Standard? It works best if you use the Line 6 interface supplied with the guitar, Jd
  6. I've swapped out some of my pickups in my JTV-69s According to Sweetwater's specs on them, they are Alnico, not sure II, IV, V. Bridge pickup impedance is 7.18k, Middle is 6.29K, and Neck is 6.16K Before I swapped out I measured the heights neck pickup: Low E side-.1885" High E-.2330", Middle: Low E-.2100" High E-.2405", Bridge Low E-.2025" High E-.3195" Hope this helps you. Jd
  7. DT Edit is pinned on the top of this forum. If Monkey is not recognizing the DT25 it's possible using DT Edit might show the same results not seeing the DT25 Jd
  8. You would have to use the effects loop of the pod 500x, you can then put the effects loop anywhere in your effect change. Jd

    Pod HD and EMG

    You have to push down on the toe of the expression pedal to switch from Volume to wah or back to volume( or what ever you've selected the exp pedal to control) also note you'd have to have a wah in your list of effects for this to work. Jd
  10. You bought it brand new and maybe forgot to peel off the plastic protective that covers the screen? Jd

    Graphic EQ

    Kind of lame, but yes it's limited to only 5 band. Some would say it's all you really need for the frequency range of a guitar sound, but to fully shape it EQ wise with one instance, block, it seems limited. Guess it was all they could squeeze into the programming back then. Jd
  12. You should start a new topic as this one is dealing with pickups and not dead guitars. Better chance of people seeing your questions/issue. Jd
  13. @srl01 I think @cruisinon2 might be complicating this more than I thought your original post was, or maybe I'm not understanding things. If you want to have the JTV/Standard variax as a acoustic guitar(modelled) on one path and on the other path the JTV/Standard pickups going into an amp model that is possible on a POD HD500(x) or Helix( I don't have one of those but it's more powerful routing wise than the HD500 so I'm sure it's possible on it). You would have to have both tuned the same as in no funky DADGAD tunings on the acoustic as this wouldn't sound right. If you want to have a Les Paul on one path and a Fender Strat on the other, then cruision2's comment is correct that this can't be done. It would always have to be Magnetic pickups on one path and the Variax modelled guitar of choice on the other. Hope this makes sense. Any questions, let me know. Jd
  14. Either the Helix family or POD HD 500 with either a JTV or Standard can do what you need, the caveat to this is you'd have to use the VDI cable. Jd
