    Guitar In-z( Variax Even Change Something In The Sound?)

    from the advanced guide page 2-4: • Guitar In-Z (Knob 3) - Select the input impedance of the Guitar input. This feature affects tone and feel because your guitar pickups are being loaded as they would be by an effect pedal or a tube amplifier. Note: The Guitar In-Z setting affects the GUITAR IN input only. Please see the Impedance Rating s table at the end of this section to reference the input impedance of each individual model. I don't mean to hijack your post : The reason I found this post was because I was looking up Variax and Guitar in-Z to clarify what the POD HD 500x Advanced Guide was stating. I understand the in-Z is for the Guitar input on the HD 500x but what I'd like to know is if I use my magnetic pickups on my JTV using the VDI connection, why would this In-Z not effect the mags through the VDI connection? Even changing the input 1 to Variax Mag doesn't make any difference. So if I want to use my magnetic pickups where these impedances can be changed I'd have to connect via the guitar in on the POD, which seems counter intuitive if using the VDI cable. Thoughts anyone? Jd
  2. With the new v2.8 firmware update they've added L6 connectivity and control. I'm still trying to find out to what extent that is without having to go out and get a Helix. Don't want to make the purchase if it's not going to work like it does with the POD HD 500x. Check out the DT amps part of the forum as they have a few post on it there. Jd

    Boston Tone for HD500X

    You are correct, didn't think about that. Jd

    You should repost this in Multi-Effects then Pod XT as you might get better/more specific help Debería volver a publicar esto en Multi-Effects y luego en Pod XT, ya que podría obtener una ayuda mejor / más específica Jd

    Boston Tone for HD500X

    Didn't Tom Scholz use the Rockman that he designed? That's the Boston sound that I remember, would be harder to emulate that in the POD HD500x. Jd
  7. This is a common thing we all run into when trying to match the non pre sounds to the pre amp sounds. It takes a bit of tweaking. When changing from non pre to pre amp you always have to match the drive, bass, mid, treble, presents, volume etc. because they change to a default setting or at least they never seem to match from one to the other. This is annoying. Yes, the tube in the preamp would not be used if you don't choose pre model. The back end, power amp side, does use the tubes. I find it easiest to use the Pod HD Edit software as it makes it easier to see the change in values. There are also some deeper editing you can do like sag etc but I haven't played to much with that. What you might also consider is if you like the way the Pod sounds without preamp, you might want to look at a Full Range, Flat Responce, FRFR, amp instead of a DT. Just a thought. In the end remember if sounds good it is good. Some here just don't bother changing to the pre as what sound they are getting works for them so they don't tweak anything that much. Jd

    flash memory

    You'd have to connect to it via MIDI and use the DTedit to find out what firmware.

    Preset Bpm For Delays?

    If you haven't done this already, make sure on the SETUP view on page 6 of 12 that you have Tempo Sync:3 set to PRESET and NOT GLOBAL. Jd
  11. Are you trying to have a guitar feed going through the POD and also through Helix Native? In parallel or are you trying add more FX to the signal chain that you are using the plugin and POD? A more clear plan would help for us to give our 2 cents. Jd
  12. I've tried a right angled Cat6 cable. You have to make sure you get the correct right angle one as the plastic lock clip can be on different sides. I don't use this anymore as the Cat6 cable doesn't act like a guitar cable in how it falls to the ground so I ended up getting something else. Jd
  13. Line 6 moderators, please pin this topic of Variax users trying to update them via Helix ISN'T supported at this time. I've seen all to many posts here and on multiple Facebook pages of people asking why trying to update their Variax guitars(or Workbench) using a Helix doesn't work. Yes, it was missed in Helix and may come in a future firmware update in which at that time you could then delete the Pinned post. Jd
  14. Again Thanks for the reminder of the saving of the bundle. Knopfler fan also. This guitar makes it easy to change from one artist sound to another if you tweak things enough. Jd
  15. Did you also change out the middle PUP for a Custom Shop Fat 50? And Neck? I only did bridge and middle as the Edge sound, whom I'm trying copy, only uses 2nd position most of the time. I don't seem to find the FS-1 dark, seems sparkly to me comparing it to my Signature Edge Guitar. Might have to play around with the pickup heights to compensate for this. Thanks for the link on the modelled tone. Will be interested to hear the difference with the one I created. I've never posted it cause I was never satisfied with it compared the real thing. Jd
  16. Thanks for the response. But it won't screw up the processor board it will just NOT sound as if it was on a passive guitar setup? Jd
  17. So I guess putting in a DiMarzio DP110 FS-1 Guitar Pickup that has a DC Resistance: 14.23 Kohm isn't a good idea? What would I have to do so the processor board is happy with a 14.23 k Ohm pickup as I really would like this pickup in my JTV-69s? Jd

    Nylon String IR?

    Line 6 have not done anything in regards to nylon guitar modeling since the Variax acoustic guitar model before the JTV's came out. Not until people bark enough, using the above suggested ideascale link, your not able to IR anything into a JTV unless Line 6 releases something. So your out of luck I'm afraid. People have been asking to swap out current models with other guitars models and we've seen nothing to this point of this happening. There is also nothing you can do with IR's on Helix/POD HD500x that will change the modelling on the JTV in the fashion you're thinking.

    JTV 69S with PODxt Live

    Here is what I found in the XT live documentation: 3-2 Press the Soft Button under the word VARIAX and turn the Effect Tweak knob to choose ON or OFF to tell PODXT Live whether you’d like it control the Variax. When control is enabled, PODXT Live can change Variax models as you change PODXT Live channels, as described on page 4•10. pretty sure it change my JTV when I had it connected via the VDI. Jd

    JTV 69S with PODxt Live

    Yes, when I first got my JTV I connected to my XT live and all the XT was able to do was change what model of guitar on the JTV. No custom tunings are available on the XT. This is all from memory as I switched to HD500x soon after. Jd
  23. Also after watching some of the videos I see where you might be having the problem. First, you can't store open E to Model like you want to do, the way you may think it works. Model would then store the open E to Spank 1 if that's the tuning you want for Spank 1, if you had it on T-Model 5, it would save it there. It saves the tuning with the model selected. I'm guessing you just want to have an Open E tuning on one of the tuning positions(tuning knob), just choose any other one other than Model and Standard. When you push the Guitar model selector after, it goes to audition mode, you'd have to hold the Guitar selector knob for about 2.5 sec for it to save the new tuning. I hope I made sense in my explanation but if you need more clarification then please post. Jd
  24. There is no place that I know of where we can download custom guitar settings for the JTV's. If others know of such a site, please share. Jd
  25. You'd need this: http://www.fullcompass.com/prod/503900-Line-6-99-065-0005 But do a google search to see if you can find these used or other sites as this price seems a little hight to me. Jd
