  1. Is the James Tyler JTV-69 compatible with my Pod XT Live hardware and Line 6 Edit software? Will I be able to save variax presets along with my Pod XTL presets? Will I be able to do JTV firmware and patch updates through my XTL hardware and Line 6 edit software?
  2. I have not seen this posted on the forum, so I thought I would post it. I wondered how long it would take to charge a battery from dead to when the red light flashes. I just timed it at 3.5 hours. (give or take a few minutes!) For any of our international members, this was on a 110 volt ac outlet.
  3. Hi friends, someone has tried the new version firmware 2.23 in variax JTV? and there is a way to update it connected trought the helix? Thanks a lot!!! (Sorry for the english, i use a google translate)
  4. Hi there, I have always wanted a Variax, but because I am left handed I could never get the newer ones. I see the older Variax 500 was in lefty, but they are pretty rare and go for high prices. So I decided to buy a brand new one and do it myself. It's not that hard, I promise and I am no luthier. You will probably void your warranty so do this at your own risk! 1. Remove all the strings. 2. Remove old nut by using a small block of square wood and gently tap (and I mean gently) the block of wood with a mallet. Tap in the direction of the bridge or neck to loosen the glue. And then tap it on the side to slide with a blunt screwdriver, out of the slot. Mine came out really easy and only had a drop of glue in two spots. 3. Replace old nut with the Graphtech TUSQ-XL nut, PQL-5000-L0. This is a lefty nut and is pretty close to the original. Graphtech actually supply the nut for the JTV-69 as standard, but they don't have an exact lefty copy. I sanded mine for about 10 seconds with fine paper to reduce the thickness ever so slightly and then pressed in the new nut. Sand a little, then test. It was a snug fit and didn't bother glueing. 4. Measure the saddles on the bridge (from the rear most straight edge of the bridge to the leading edge of the saddle) and write down each length according to the right handed string setup. You will then reverse all the saddle lengths by screwing them in or out according to what you have written down, with the left handed string layout. 5. Remove the cover on the back of the JTV-69 closest to the bottom. This houses the Variax motherboard. Locate the two grey wires with single white connector attached. This goes back to the bridge piezo pickups. Remove the connector. You will now need to flip the connector around so as to flip the piezos for the lefty string layout. When you plug it back you will notice that the connector doesnt quite align and fit. You will need to cut off a bit of the plastic on the motherboard part of the connector to make it fit. Its not as bad as it sounds. I then secured the plug with a bit of tape. 6. Restring the guitar as lefty, adjust the saddle heights if necessary and re-intonate. But you should be pretty close with the saddle lengths from the previous measurement. 7. Profit $$$! Only downside to this is that its a "Jimi'd" guitar and a bit difficult to reach past the 20th fret. But it plays just like a normal guitar. I dont use a tremelo so have tightened up the springs to make it as hard tail as possible.
  5. I am trying to update my JTV 89 F using my Helix as the interface through line 6 monkey. I have both the line 6 cable and the quarter inch jack connected to the guitar. Every time I try to update the firmware from 2.21 to 2.23 I am getting the following 2 errors (screenshot attached). Can anyone help on how I can get over this issue? ryi
  6. Deutsche Version Version française Please go through the following checklist before updating the flash memory of your Variax guitar to ensure the update completes successfully: Ensure that the interface you are using to update the Variax with (Workbench Interface, PODxt Live/Pro, POD X3 Live/Pro, POD HD500/HD Pro, Vetta II) isNOT connected 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 Variax 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, or that the stereo TRS cable is plugged into the Variax providing power from the XPS power supply to power on the guitar. [*]On a James Tyler Variax 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 on that guitar. Avoid using VDI or CAT5 cables longer than 10 ft. in length when updating any Variax guitar. [*]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 Variax guitar. Q: How do I update or re-install the flash memory on my Variax Electric 300, 500, 600, 700, James Tyler Variax, and Shuriken guitars? A: These instruments can only be returned to factory reset by reinstalling the flash memory. You will need to connect your Variax to the workbench software using your Variax enabled hardware (i.e. Variax Hardware interface, POD XT/X3 Live, POD X3 Pro, VETTA with VDI, or POD HD500), then you will have to connect your interface to your computer via USB. Once the guitar and interface are connected to the computer, you will need to run Line 6 Monkey.

  7. I just wanted to share some of my experiences (and frustrations) when using the JTV. I have done some tweaking in workbench and the guitar is now a dream; if you spend some time with this guitar it really is a work of genius and incredibly playable/musical. Here is what I did: Set each presets' string volume: I did this not using the global string volume but the string tab for each preset. It took some time but it was worth it. Prior to doing this I found on many of the presets some of the strings were thin and others were too 'present'. In many cases the string volumes were out by a significant degree eg 50 50 50 100 80 100. In most cases I found my top E string was the quietest and weakest sounding in each preset. It seems strange that the individual string volumes were so far out, you think they would nail this in the factory! I then boosted the preset volume by between 3-6db for to compensate for string volume reductions I also - in also most every preset - increased the pickup level by between 3-6 db for each preset pick up. I tried to get the levels roughly the same between presets, as for me I find this much more musical - prior to doing my level tweaking I found the models with lower volume less appealing. Now I have levelled each preset out some of my favourite models are the ones that I 'skipped' prior to the above. If you are not happy with your JTV I would strongly suggest doing some of the above. I was about to get rid of my JTV but now I absolutely love it and can't put it down. The models shine through much better now and there is no longer the frustration of playing 'thin sounding' strings on many of the models. I now need to find a decent amp for the guitar - currently i'm using headphones, but previously I have played it through 'normal amps' and been v disappointed. I haven't tried it through an amp since doing my volume/pick up tweaking so it might sound alright now. Has anyone got any suggestions for amplification?
  8. Anyone else getting this error code? Every time I make a change on workbench HD - eg pick up volume change - I get this error code. Also I get this error code as soon as my JTV has connected to the software. Really annoying! Can anyone help? I am using a Helix also. Thanks, PS I have attached a screenshot
  9. Hi everyone, I read some topics in the forum and i'm not sure if any topic describe exactly my problem so i have to ask you guys. I bought my guitar (a JTV 59) refurbished in Line 6 store and finally after 3 month I bring it to my home in Argentina after a travel in the US, so I have to solve the problem pretty much by myself. After a few days of using it the bridge magnetic pickup starts to make some intermittent noise (not a hum, more like a broken contact). It only happens once in a while using the magnetic pickups with the VDI cable with and without the battery. With a regular 1/4" plug with the battery the noise is still there, without the battery the noise disappears. My clue is that the pickup selector is either dirty or broken, but the noise should be there at least i'm missing something. If you have any solution besides cleaning the pickup switcher i'll apreceate your advices. Thanks you in advance. Sorry about my english, it's not my native lenguage.
  10. hi guys, I used to be a hd 500 user for a long time and recently have moved to helix. The gear that i currently run is JTV 89F -> Helix LT -> DT-25. I am struggling with a few things now with my set up: Firstly the DT25 integration with Helix tech is not that good as it was with HD 500. Is that true or is it just me? For instance you cant seem to switch between the 4 channels of the amp. The sound thats coming out of the amplifier seems to be very hard to dial in as well, as I have to adjust the knobs on the amp it self not the helix unit. What amp model/set up should I use to get a good acoustic sound out of my variax? As soon as I put an amp in the signal chain for an acoustic model it makes it sound very different. I want an amplified sound of the acoustic model without much color on it. Currently I am just using one or compressors which is also not that great of sound when it comes to the variax acoustic models. This set up coming out of my dt25 sound horrible for the acoustic models. A guy at a guitar shop suggested I should look at PAs or Roland Jc 40/120 amps. As they will give the best flat response with the helix doing the modeling and the PA/Amp doing just the basic amplification of the sound. The main reason for getting a dt25 was the compact size and the fact that it was a tube amp that can be used with a drummer in a live setting for a jam. My previous experience with PAs has not been that good as they are very big in size and dont hold that well in front of a drummer. The JC amps, I have no idea of. Any other amps or PAs that anyone would recommend? I dont want to go with line 6 PAs as they have alot of functionality on them that I will never use. Let me know if anyone is having similar issues and what did you do for it.
  11. Hi guys I am really interessted in getting a JTV 59. The only reason i havent bought one yet is that i play through a very cheap setup. I am not sure if it will sound halfway decent enough to justify a buy. I have a Blackstar HT-1R, unfortunately not enough money to upgrade the amp. Now my questions is, will the accoustic modelling sound good through this amp? Doses anybody has experience palying a Variax throug a small cheap amp? Thanks

A: JTV guitars use a lithium-ion battery similar to that of a camcorder. A fully charged battery can deliver at least 12 hours of continuous performance. There is a four light battery life indicator on the battery compartment on the back of the JTV guitars that can be viewed by pressing the round flush black button next to the lights. 4 LEDs = 9+ hours 3 LEDs = 6+ hours 2 LEDs = 3+ hours 1 LED = less than 3 hours 1 LED blinking = less than 1 hour, recharge battery Note: Using a non-Line 6 JTV battery will void your warranty and may damage your JTV. Q: How can I power my JTV without a battery? A: There are 2 ways to supply power to the Variax without a battery. When connected to VDI Digital Input equipped hardware, such as a POD X3 Live, power is supplied via this connection. Or, use the optional XPS-DI direct box/power supply and TRS cable. With this box you can power the Variax and it also works as an A/B box to send your signal out of a DI to go direct to a board or acoustic amplifier with certain models. When powering the JTV guitar with either TRS or VDI connection, it is suggested to remove the battery from the guitar. Q: How long does it take to fully charge a dead battery for the JTV guitars? A: It takes about 12 hours to fully charge a dead JTV battery, but leaving it to charge overnight is a good time to do this. You can get a 4-6 hour play time by charging the JTV battery for 30-45 minutes. Q: What does the indicator light mean on the JTV battery charger? A: A solid RED light on the charger indicates that the battery is charging. A blinking RED light means that either the batter is fully charged, or the battery was inserted improperly into the charger and needs to be re-seated properly. If you know the battery needs charging and you get a blinking RED light when it is put into the charger, please re-seat the battery in the charger. Tuning Gears JTV-59US and JTV-89US guitars will have Hipshot Classic Guitar Tuning Machines. They are sleek, precision-built tuners with an ultra-smooth 18:1 gear ratio. The JTV-69US guitars feature the Hipshot Grip-Lock Locking Guitar Tuning Machines that are staggered in height for maximum tuning stability. For the Korean James Tyler Variax guitars, we went with 16:1 sealed tuners on all three models. They are die-cast, modern-built, solid tuners. They are sealed permanently and lubricated to work smoothly for years to come without slipping or binding. As with the JTV-69US, we went with locking and staggered versions of these 16:1 sealed tuners. As with the staggered locking tuners, the locking pole pieces within each tuner are staggered as well to match the size the tuner. They are measured 23.4mm (x2 forlow E/A strings), 21.9mm (x2 for D/G strings), and 20.4mm (x2 for B/high E strings). New HD Acoustic Models Q: When were the new HD acoustic models added to the JTV guitars? A: The new HD acoustic models were added in firmware 1.81 and are included in all newer firmware versions of the JTV guitars after that. Q: What does the Tone knob do on the newer HD acoustic models on the JTV guitars? A: The Tone knob on the new HD acoustic models is used to adjust the amount of body resonance for the model, but it was also specially programmed to have the top 10% of the Tone knob completely remove this resonance (at the 90-100% position) for those that prefer to remove that sound from the new acoustic models to closely resemble the flat nature of the older acoustic models from previous Variax guitars. Alternate Tuning Knob Q: How does the Alternate Tuning Knob on the JTV guitars work? A: The Alternate Tuning Knob on the JTV gutiars can be used to any of the preset tunings that are saved to the knob. This knob has 12 settings including two labeled 'Model' and 'Standard' Set to 'Model,' the Alternate Tuning Knob lets you access the alternate tunings you created using the Variax Workbench software. These tunings are stored on your Variax's Model knob. Set to 'Standard,' the Alternate Tuning knob overrides saved tunings to set every model to standard EADGBE tuning. The Alt Tune knob's remainging 10 settings are hand-picked for each stle of James Tyler Variax guitar. Q: How do I reset the tunings? A: The on-board factory tuning reset feature was removed starting with HD firmware (2.x and higher). That procedure was to plug in while holding down the model knob. To reset the tunings in firmware 2.0+, they have to be loaded from the Workbench HD program.

A: First, ensure that you have downloaded and installed the latest drivers for the Workbench interface from the Line 6 Downloads page. Then, ensure that the battery of the James Tyler Variax is charged and inserted into the guitar. Connect the Variax Workbench interface to the computer via USB, and also connect the James Tyler Variax guitar to the Workbench interface via the included VDI/Network cable. Lastly, connect a 1/4" cable into the guitar's output jack to power on the guitar (as the Workbench interface DOES NOT provide power to the guitar, this 'dummy' plug is necessary for the interface to recognize the JTV). The other end of the 1/4" cable does not need to be plugged into anything. You should see 2 green lights on the Workbench interface when everything is connected and being recognized properly. Factory Reset and Updating the Flash Memory Q: Why doesn't the Factory Reset procedure described in the manual work? A: The reset procedure described in the JTV manual was removed from the JTV guitars to make room in the memory for the Variax HD Acoustic models that were added in flash memory update v1.80. All JTV guitars with flash memory v1.80 and newer no longer have this factory reset procedure available. To perform a factory reset, re-install, rollback, or update the flash memory on the James Tyler Variax guitars, please use the following link: Variax Reflash and Software update F.A.Q. Q: If I tune physical strings on the guitar down or up on the JTV can I use the virtual capo? A: It is not recommended as it could cause audible anomalies. The guitars were designed to re-tune from E Standard tuning. Using the Virtual Capo to tune the guitar from any other tuning is unsupported.

In den JTV Gitarren verwenden wir Lithium-Ion Batterien. Eine voll aufgeladene Batterie liefert ca. 12 Stunden Leistung. Auf der Rückseite der JTV befinden sich 4 LEDs. Diese geben den Batteriestand an. Drücken Sie den schwarzen Knopf neben den LEDs um den Batteriestand angezeigt zu bekommen. 4 LEDs: 9+ Stunden Laufzeit übrig. 3 LEDs: 6+ Stunden Laufzeit übrig. 2 LEDs: 3+ Stunden Kaufzeit übrig. 1 LED: Weniger als 3 Stunden übrig. 1 blinkendes LED: Weniger als 1 Stunde übrig, laden Sie die Batterie bitte auf. Achtung, es gibt zwei Wege die Variax mit Strom zu versorgen ohne eine Batterie zu verwenden. Wenn die Gitarre an ein VDI Input gerät angeschlossen ist, wie z.B. ein POD X3 Live, wird Strom über diese Verbindung geleitet. Oder Sie verwenden eine XPS-DI Box Netzteil mit TRS Kabel. Mit dieser Box können Sie die Variax mit Strom versorgen und gleichzeitig dient sie als A/B um Ihr Signal direkt aus einem DI in ein Board oder akustischen Verstärker mit verschiedenen Modellen. Wenn Sie die Gitarre auf einen dieser Wege mit Strom versorgen, dann sollten Sie immer die Batterie erst entfernen. Wie lange dauert es um eine platte Batterie einer JTV komplett aufzuladen ? Es dauert 12 Stunden um die Batterie vollständig aufzuladen. Sie können aber schon nach 30 bis 45 Minuten für 4-6 Stunden spielen. Was bedeutet die Lampe auf dem Ladegerät? Wenn das Licht durchgehend ROT leuchtet, dann heißt das, dass die Batterie nachlädt. Ein blinkendes rotes Licht heißt, dass die Batterie entweder voll geladen ist oder, dass die Batterie falsch eingesetzt worden ist. Wenn Sie aber wissen, dass die Batterie nicht voll geladen ist und das Licht blinkt, dann sollten Sie die Batterie neu ins Ladegerät einsetzen. Zwirbel: Die JTV-59US sowie JTV-89US haben Hipshot Classic Zwirbel. Diese Zwirbel sind geschmeidig und gleichzeitg präzise. 18:1 Verhältnis. Die JTV-69US Gitarren haben Hipshot Grip-Lock Zwirbel. Die Grip-Lock sind höhenverschoben für maximale Tuningstabilität. Die koreanischen Modelle haben verschlossene Zwirbel mit 16:1 Verhältnis. Moderne und solide Druckguss Zwirbel. Sie sind permanent versiegelt und eingeölt damit sie jahrelang funktionstüchtig bleiben ohne Rutschen oder Verklebung. Verschiebungen der Stäbchen in den Zwirbeln: 23.4mm für tiefe E/A Saiten. 21.9mm für D/G Saiten und 20.4mm für B/hohe E Saiten. Neue HD Acoustic Modelle: Wann wurden die neuen HD Acoustic Modelle zu den JTV Gitarren hinzugefügt? Die neuen Modelle wurden mit Firmware Patch 1.81 eingeführt und sind in jedem neueren Firmware Update enthalten. Was kann ich mit dem Tone Knopf auf neueren JTV HD Acoustic machen? Der Tone Knopf auf den neueren HD Modellen passt die Menge der Resonanz für das jeweilige Modell an, zusätzlich ist es speziell programmiert, sodass die oberen 10% des Tone Knopfes die Resonanz vollständig entfernen (zwischen 90 und 100%) für die, die liber einen flachen Sound haben. Wie bei den alten Varaix Acoustic Modellen. Alternate Tuning Knopf: Wir funktioniert der Alternate Tuning Knopf? Der Alternate Tuning Knopf auf der JTV kann mit allen anderen Presets verwendet werden wie auf dem Knopf abgespeichert sind. Der Knopf hat 12 Einstellungen, dazu gehören „Model“ und „Standard“. Stellen Sie den Alternet Tuning Knopf auf „Model“ bekommen Sie Zugriff auf Ihre Stimmungen, die Sie selbst mit der Variax Workbench Software erstellt haben. Diese sind nämlich im Variax Model Knopf abgespeichert. Stellen Sie den Knopf aber auf „Standard“, wird die Gitarrenstimmung jedes Models temporär auf EADGBE Standart gestellt. Die restlichen 10 Alternate Tuning Einstellungen sind handverlesene Tyler Variax Gitarrenstimmungen. Alternate Tuning Stimmungen für die JTV-59 und JTV-69: MODEL STANDARD: E A D G H E DROP D: D A D G H E 1/2 DOWN: Eb Ab Db Gb Hb Eb DROP Db: Db Ab Db Gb Hb Eb 1 DOWN: D G C F A D DADGAD: D A D G A D OPEN D: D A D F# A D BLUES G: D G D G H D RESO G: G H D G H D OPEN A: E A C# E A E BARITONE: H E A D F# H Alternate Tuning Stimmungen für die JTV-59 und JTV-69: MODEL STANDARD: E A D G H E DROP D: D A D G H E 1/2 DOWN: Eb Ab Db Gb Hb Eb DROP Db: Db Ab Db Gb Hb Eb 1 DOWN: D G C F A D DROP C: C G C F A D m3 DOWN: Db Gb H E Ab Db DROP B: H Gb B E Ab Db M3 DOWN: C F Hb Eb G C DROP Bb: Hb F Hb Eb G C BARITONE: H E A D F# H Workbench Schnittstelle: Wann erkennt die Variax Workbench Schnittstelle meine Gitarre? Erst müssen Sie die Workbench Software herunterladen und installieren, diese können Sie hier finden. Stellen Sie dann sicher, dass die Batterie in der Gitarre geladen und korrekt eingestetzt ist. Verbinden Sie dann die Schnittstelle via USB mit Ihrem Computer und die Gitarre mit der Schnittstelle anhand des VDI/Netzwerk Kabels, welches enthalten ist. Stecken Sie dann zuletzt ein ¼“ Kabel in den Ausgang der Gitarre um diese anzuschalten. (Die Workbench Schnittstelle startet die Gitarre NICHT!, stattdessen können Sie einfach ein ¼“ Kabel anschließen als Dummy sozusagen.) Das andere Ende des ¼“ muss nicht in ein anderes Gerät eingesteckt sein. 2 Grüne Lichter sollten nun leuchten auf der Workbench Schnittstelle sobald es angeschlossen und erkannt worden ist. Zurücksetzen auf die Werkseinstellungen und die Aktualisierung des Flash Memory: Weshalb funktioniert das Zurücksetzen nicht so wie im Benutzerhandbuch beschrieben? Die Prozedur zum Zurücksetzen auf Werkseinstellungen, die im Handbuch beschrieben ist wurde von der Gitarre mit Update 1.80 entfernt um Platz zu schaffen für die Variax HD Acoustic Modelle. Alle JTV Gitarren mit Flash Memory V1.80 oder neuer können auf diese Art und Weise nicht mehr zurückgesetzt werden. Um die Geräte zurückzusetzen oder zu aktualisieren folgen Sie diesem Link: Variax Reflash and Software update F.A.Q. Wenn ich die Gitarrensaiten manuell nach oben oder unten stimme, kann ich dann immernoch den virtuellen JTV Kapo (Variax virtual capo) verwenden? Wir empfehlen dies nicht, da die Gitarren für eine E Standart Stimmung entworfen sind. Das Verwenden des Virtuellen Kapo auf eine umgestimmte Gitarre ist also nicht unterstützt.

  13. Hi, I have bought JTC-89F 2 months ago. (brand new) I am not sure if it was there before or not as I didn't have too much time to play, but I have realized that E1 string is much quieter than all other strings... I am not sure if I should send it on warranty or it is some way software issue? Global string level setup is all on 0.0 so it is not there. It is present on all presents. Can anyone advise?
  14. Well recently in another discussion I ran across an Idea to help eleviate some of the sympathetic resonance that occurs with the variax guitar.Link here http://line6.com/support/message/485558#485558 (quite amplified do to the Full Range of the Variax and HD500 capability's). I expanded on his Idea and chose to add vibration relief on the Bridge also. (there are pictures showing what I did on the other discussion). I wanted to express my extreme satisfaction in the results I am getting. Over the last few days of practice I am amazed at the sound quality of the modeling. (greatly improved I think from the lack of sound artifacts being modeled along with what I was playing). Also the quality of the alternative tunings I used to never use the 12 string models cause I thought they sounded terrible at times especially tuned down. Now they sound phenomenal no warble sounds, just true to what I was playing. I am not kidding I sat for about an hour going through the different models and tunings amazed at how great they sounded. ( the last time I was ever impressed by a piece of gear was about 16 years ago I bought a 5150 combo and fell in love with tube distortion, just loved the sound of it.) made me enjoy playing. I am hoping that others try this technique and have the same results (Truely I do).. Thanks for Others in these forums that have always been helpful for me...
  15. I recently purchased a used JTV-59. Of course it came with no battery charger or usb interface. After learning that the XTLive doesn't charge the battery, I googled a replacement charger. A user on one of these forums noted that the battery was similar to a Sony Handycam battery, model # NP-F570 camera. I just picked a charger up at the local batteries plus yesterday for $30. In stock and works great! Link: http://www.batteriesplus.com/product_search/43952-Sony-Digi-Cam-Battery-AC-DC-Charger-CAM10551.aspx Also available much cheaper on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Battery-Charger-NP-QM71D-NP-QM91D-Batteries/dp/B000KU5CN0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1397434696&sr=8-2&keywords=sony+np-f570+charger (I didn't wanna wait) Now, does anyone know if a generic Ethernet-to-USB adapter will work as a replacement for the USB interface? Thanks, T
  16. Hi, I have a JTV-69 that would like to be able to control (change models/programs) with a footswitch similar to the POD HD X with the Variax input. Does Line6 make anything simple, like the M5, that would allow the Variax to plug into it and have program changes with the footswitch? Thanks, Jeremy
  17. My band has been selected to play at Summer's End festival in Wales in early October of this year. I will need to bring both my JTV89F and Helix. I know there has been new legislation for bringing instruments into the cabin vs checking them in like luggage. If anyone has been traveling recently especially with a guitar I would certainly appreciate any insight or what to expect traveling overseas with an instrument.
  18. JTV-59 & POD HD500x users: How do you use the "Guitar in pad/normal"-switch on the POD HD? I feel and read that the PUps on the 59 are very hot, so I use "pad" to prevent peaking the gain-stages at the POD.
  19. I purchased a JTV-69 Variax about two years ago. Recently, the pickups are not working when the modeling isn't engaged. Has anyone else experienced this issue? It was reassuring to know that I had the option to switch between using the pickups or modeling.
  20. Hey all, Hoping to get some help without sending my guitar in for repair (too many gigs in the coming weeks and service centers take too long to make repairs, at least from a friend's experience). Ok, so the other day I was setting up tones on my Spider Valve a few hours before a gig and I realized that I needed to charge my battery. I put the battery in the charger and approximately 5 min later I realized I needed to tweak one more tone, I then placed the battery back into the guitar, watched the battery level meter light up and heard the board switch on...then nothing. I could not turn on modeling or change tunings. I thought maybe the battery was not charged so I pressed the battery level button which did not work. I placed the battery back on the charger and noticed that it was charging. I waited an hour and tried again but nothing. I wanted to make sure the whole guitar wasn't dead so I plugged it into the Spider Valve again and the magnetic pickups worked just fine. I still needed a way to test the piezos so I went to my secondary rig and used the VDI cable this time. When I plugged the JTV into the VDI, the knobs lit up and everything worked like normal, I figured this may have reboot the guitar so I tried again with just a 1/4" instrument cable and the battery but nothing was working except the magnetic pickups. One thing that I did notice was every time I put the battery in for the first time, the battery level indicator lit up and the board sounded as though it was kicking on, but once again when I pressed the battery level button, nothing worked. I should mention (although I don't think this made a difference) I had the guitar plugged into drop tune pedal because I use another guitar on stage. I don't think this would have cause a short because I've heard of people using other pedals (e.g. Tube Screamers) in the the signal chain and never having issues. I also read somewhere that someone had to use a TRS in lieu of an instrument cable (something about the JTV liking TRS cables better). I've also heard of guys using powered A/B boxes to send power through the cable when not using a VDI compatible piece of equipment. I guess I'm just hoping to hear that someone else went through the same ordeal so that I can get this issue taken care of ASAP. Like I said earlier, too many gigs in the coming weeks to leave my guitar sitting in a service center. Thanks in advance for your help
  21. Hi. Can someone please verify the behavior of the chosen input-type of a patch. I have a traditional e-guitar, a Variax 600 and a JTV-59 and I have recognised a strange behavior, I would like to understand. For every type of listed guitar I have a setlist with similar patches and every setlist contains patches where the input-type (guitar, variax, variax mags) is chosen on the level of the preset (not global). I thought this would be necessary to get the different guitar-types to work. Today I recognised that I was playing in a wrong setlist on my POD HD500 (backup-device, no X) using a VDI-cable. This was my main setlist where I have selected "Variax Mags" as the on and only input (2. is the unused "Aux"). So I wondered why there ever was a tone and I could switch models too? So I like to ask if there is a fallback logic which I can count on, so I can reduce the needed setlists to a minimum. I recognised that "Variax Mags" allows a fallback to "Variax". But what about playing with Input "Variax Mags" and storing a chosen model and/or tune when playing my JTV? Does the stored state overwrite the chosen input-type on a preset-base? And is there the possibility to fallback to "guitar" if I play a "Variax" or "Variax Mags" preset too? Unfortunately I am not able to test this by myself because I have left my POD HD500x and my two other guitars at rehearsal and just have my POD HD500 and my V600 in reach for the next week. I always play VDI-cables on both Variax. Thank you in advance, Sascha
  22. Very poor from Line6. it's a year meanwhile since my last wish for a Variax as a Lefthand... they bring out new stuff en masse, Firehawk, Firehawk 1500, Helix, but what can i do, i still can't use the best of it, the handling with a lefthanded variax... so, i start ebay next weekend and sell the whole gear... 2 piece of DT25, HD500, and perhaps the Firehawk FX.... very poor strategy of Line6...
  23. I have an issue with excessive hum and the jtv59. I'm running guitar via VDI cable into a HD500. I'm using the magnetic pickups and the modelling at the same time and using a panner to switch between them. For example: Acoustic jmodels and panning into a heavy magnetic-based tone. I'm running XLR right out to a EV monitor on stage and XLR left out to board. I'm getting a horrible hum now. It has happened before but seems to have gotten worse. I switched inputs in the presets in the pod to just the variax (right before the gig in a panic) and the buzz is gone. Trying to brainstorm causes and solutions. The hum sounds like a typical ground loop. I've tried the ground lift on the pod and it seems to have no effect. This venue has bad power (as does a lot of places we play). Getting a few furman SS-6B filtering power strips that may help. I could just run to the board and the send guitar back to wedge. Thought about getting the pyle PHE400. http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/555-16055?scode=DD1443&trk_msg=5JJO54U26DJ4B18OSAJ6TRMJ1K&trk_contact=765CTN3VQE3OND4R5FLA07VMJO&utm_source=Listrak&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=555-16055&utm_campaign=DD1443 Thought that is maybe a grounding issue in the JTV. If this was a normal guitar, I would gut it and foil and ground the pickup cavity. I'm a little hesitant to dig into it but will likely crack it open soon and take a look. I saw the pickup diagram that is flowing around. Afterthought: I don't know if switching to the magnetics would bring hum back. That would be a great test. Any help would be most appreciated.
  24. Hi. Just in case anyone like to have models of JTV-59' magnetic-pickups, here is my first try. This gives you the possibility to switch to custom-tunings with the sound of your mags. Of course the tone-results may differ from guitar to guitar, but with my '59 I am 95 % there. 2017-01-01 JTV59-ModeledMags.zip content of the ZIP-file are three presets, no bank or bundle HAPPY NEW YEAR :)

    Guitars into Firehawk FX

    Hi Guys, new to the forum but have been aLine 6 user for many years. I currently use a rackmount Pod Pro with full floorboard and a JTV 59, along with a 'normal' guitar live. I use an AB switching pedal to send one or the other guitar's signal into the POD. I'm considering changing to a Firehawk FX, and was wondering if i could connect the JTV59 via the VDI cable to the firehawk, and my 'normal' guitar to the 1/4" jack input, and somehow switch between the guitars that way? Is this possible? Also in my current setup i use another AB box to switch the guitars to the POD or to a seperate channel on the Mixing desk for Acoustic sounds from the JTV. How might this work with the Firehawk? Finally, on the POD Pro i use the XLR outputs to the desk and 1/4" jack outputs to a stereo power amp going into 2 Marshall 1x12s, will i still be able to do this? Many thanks for your advice!
