Now Available: Variax Hd Upgrade And Workbench Hd Software in James Tyler Variax Guitars / Workbench HD Posted August 24, 2013 I tried for the last hour to connect to Monkey and it wont go through/connect. I connected my guitar via the cables it came with and the USB box was not recognized. This process is not intuitive. Very frustrated. Maybe I will just live with the models it came with. Sad that I do not have the option to even try. Im not an idiot, and my internet is fine, so something is wrong with Line 6, my guitar, or something on your end. I updated when I 1st got the guitar and it all went well after the complicated figuring out learning curve happened (like not being explicit about having the guitar connected AND the amp jack plugged in at the same time. If you let us know the exact steps you took, we can help you better.
