  1. English: The POD HD500X does not have the ability to connect to the Variax Workbench software (v1.75 and older). Development for NON-HD Variax Workbench software has ceased meaning functionality with the POD HD500X will not be added. Please use another VDI-equipped device for Workbench 1.75 and older, as spelled out on the Variax Workbench release notes at www.Line6.com/software: Works with: James Tyler Variax POD HD Pro POD HD500 POD X3 Live POD X3 Pro PODxt Live Variax Variax 300/600 Variax Acoustic Variax USB Interface Vetta II Combo Vetta II Head Français: Le POD HD500X ne peut pas connecter au logiciel Variax Workbench. (Version 1.75 et ancien) On a cessé le développement de la version pas-HD de Variax Workbench que veut dire qu’on n’ajoutera pas une fonctionnalité avec le HD500X. Utilisez un autre appareil avec VDI pour Workbench 1.75 et ancien s’il vous plait. Deutsch: Das POD HD500X kann sich nicht mit der Variax Workbench Software (Version 1.75 oder älter) verbinden.

  2. I've have a JTV-69 and a HD500 that are both about 2 years old. There seems to be some kind of bug this behavior is only when I'm using the VDI cable (doesn't happen with 1/4"). So often I will do this sequence of events: Turn the volume down on the JTV-69 Press and hold the "Tap" button on the HD-500 to switch to the tuner Turn the volume up on the JTV-69 Tune the guitar Turn the volume down on the jtv-69 Press the "Tap" button on the HD-500 to leave tuner mode bump the strings, make a lot of noise, because for some reason my guitar is up 100% even though the knob is set to 0. turn the tuner slightly back up and down to 0. Now it is actually set to 0 Please note that this happens on patches that have no variax settings configured (I.e. tuning, volume/tone settings, models, etc. and the tuner is set to mute on my HD500 at all times. Can anyone else confirm this is a bug? If so is there away to submit it to L6? It's annoying as crap, because even though I'm aware of this behavior. I get burned by it. I'm usually playing at an event and will be tuning while there is someone speaking, or while something else is going on, and a random guitar noise is pretty annoying for everyone else involved. Thanks!

  4. The current version of the Variax Workbench HD software requires the usage of the Variax Workbench Interface that comes with the James Tyler Variax guitars. Usage of other VDI equipped hardware such as the POD HD500, HD500x and the HD Pro are not supported as this is a known issue with the Variax Workbench HD software and we hope to address this in a future update.

  5. I just bought a JTV-89 to use with my Pod HD500 - I updated all the software on the Pod and Guitar and It is a great rig. I use the VDI cable because I want the guitar setting to be controlled by the Pod HD500. I send a MIDI Program change from my sequencer and it sets up not only the Pod HD500 but the guitar also. I just hate the cord. I know I can use a guitar wireless rig thru the 1/4" analog output and get the sounds from the guitar but I do not get the control of the settings like you do with the VDI cable. It is soooo easy to save a new Pod HD500 Program with all the Variax settings and when you start your new song on the sequencer, you don't have to touch any controls on the guitar. Any plans on wireless VDI???? Also, a while back I wrote to see if you could use the MIDI CC 7 (volume control) on the Pod HD500 and that was not implemented yet. Does anybody know if that has now been implemented? I would like to control the master volume of the Pod HD500 from the sequencer sending MIDI control signals. Thanks, Joebar23
  6. Deutsch Français Please go through the following list before updating your James Tyler Variax guitar to flash memory v1.81 and newer from an earlier version of the flash memory to ensure the update completes successfully: Ensure that the interface you are using to update the JTV guitar with (Workbench Interface, PODxt Live/Pro, POD X3 Live/Pro, POD HD500/HD Pro, Vetta II) is NOTconnected to the computer through a USB hub. Make sure to connect the interface into a USB port directly into the computer, especially into the back of a desktop. If problems persist, make sure to test all of the USB ports on the computer. Avoid plugging into USB ports found on keyboards, monitors, or laptop docks. [*]When using the Workbench Interface to update or edit the JTV guitar, ensure that a charged battery is in the guitar and a 1/4" TS mono cable is inserted into the guitar's output jack to power on the guitar. [*]Ensure that the Volume knob on the guitar is NOT set to the '0' position as it will put the guitar into Power Save Mode. Make sure that the Volume knob is set higher than 0 when updating or editing the JTV guitar. [*]Please use the VDI Cable that comes with the JTV guitar when updating the flash memory. Avoid using VDI or CAT5 cables longer than 10 ft. in length when updating the James Tyler Variax. [*]During the update, select 'NO' when asked if you would like to keep the presets on the guitar. Use the Workbench software to back up your guitar presets before updating if you would like to keep them. [*]Close out any other applications running on your computer before updating the JTV guitar.

  7. Q: What is the XPS Unit? A: The XPS unit is the power supply that powers the Variax instrument via 1/4" TRS cable. The Line 6 XPS box must be powered by a Line 6 PX-2 power supply for correct operation. There are three variations of the XPS: XPS-AB: This units acts as both a Variax power supply and has an A/B footswitch to send the guitar output to either a 1/4" or XLR output. Use a standard XLR (microphone) cable to connect the XPS-AB’s XLR output to feed any balanced input. Use a TRS (Tip-Ring-Sleeve/Stereo) cable to connect your Variax to the INPUT jack of the XPS-AB, a standard mono instrument cable to connect the 1/4" output of the XPS to any standard amp rig. XPS-Mini: This unit ships with the Variax 300 series, and has an 1/4" input and output. XPS-DI: This unit shipped with the Variax Bass Instruments and had an line/mic level switch, as well as an XLR ground lift option. The XPS-DI uses a standard XLR (microphone) cable to connect the XPS-DI output to feed any balanced input. Use a TRS (Tip-Ring-Sleeve/Stereo) cable to connect your Variax to the INPUT jack of the XPS-DI, and a standard mono instrument cable to connect the 1/4" output of the XPS-DI to any standard amp rig. Note: This unit is no longer available as the Variax bass has been discontinued. Usage F.A.Q.s Q: Can I use the XPS-AB as a replacement for my XPS-DI? A: Yes, the XPS-AB is the direct replacement for the XPS-DI. Q: Can I use the XPS-mini if I do not have access to the XPS-AB box? A: Yes, the XPS-Mini can be used in place of the XPS-AB box. Be aware that the XPS-mini is the only supported power supply for the Variax 300 series instrument, due to a slight increase in the power requirements for the 300 series. Q: Will the XPS-DI recharge batteries in Variax Instruments? A: No. Q: What type of cable do I need to use to connect the XPS unit to my Variax Instrument? A: You will need to use the supplied 1/4" TRS cable (or equivalent) to connect your XPS box to your Variax instrument to deliver power. Any mono 1/4" cable will work if you are using the internal batteries for power, but the power will be drawn from the batteries rather than from the cable. Q: Can I use the XLR and 1/4" outputs simultaneously? A: No the XLR and 1/4" outputs can only be used separately. Q: Does the Footswitch provide phantom power to another device? A: No, the A/B footswitch for your Variax will not provide phantom power. Q: Can I plug my regular electric instrument into the XPS box? A: Yes, if using a standard mono guitar cable, you can plug your regular electric instrument into the XPS box without damaging your guitar. We do not advise the use of a TRS cable with anything but a Variax because of the power it carries back to the guitar from the XPS box. Also, we do not recommend using an XPS box with active guitars. The combination of voltage potentially feeding back into the guitar, and how the guitar is wired, which can vary, can potentially damage the guitar and/or the XPS box. Q: What is the length of the Variax digital cable? A: The Variax digital cable is 25 feet long. Troubleshooting F.A.Q.s Q: There is no audio signal and I am only seeing a "red" power light on the XPS A/B (DI) when connected to the Variax guitar using a TRS cable? A: If the XPS-AB/DI has the proper power connected (and is connected to the Variax) and is showing a "red" power light, this means that the XPS is not recognizing the Variax and not sending power. If a different TRS 1/4" cable does not resolve the problem, try a different XPS box to see if there is a problem with the XPS box. If a different 1/4" cable and XPS box does not solve the problem, the Variax may have an internal failure that will need to be resolved by an authorized service center. Q: I am getting a "popping" sound when changing between the XLR and 1/4" outputs when connecting to a PA system? A: This situation can happen when the mixer has phantom power applied to the channel that the XPS input. One solution is to turn off the phantom power on that channel, another solution is to put another DI between the XPS and sound board. Some end users with switch to using the different (compatible) Line 6 device. Q: My XPS Box is damaged/lost. How can I get a replacement? A: The XPS box can be special ordered from your favorite Line 6 dealer: Line 6 Dealer Locator
