Slowly coming around to testing out a new to me Variax 700. In fact I just even though I've had it in my possession for a while, I just registered it. I was told I would need to install Workbench and Monkey in order to adjust/change custom settings. So I did thinking I could figure out how to download to the guitar. After installing Workbench HD and ensuring all updates on the Monkey were current, I was still back to square one. So I asked again and was then told ,much to my chagrin, in order to install custom tunings/guitars for the selector switch, I would need to use a Line6 interface. Was contemplating upgrading my system and trading in the other guys stomp box for the HD500 or even better the Helix, but wisely(? to be determined,) I bought the Line6 USB interface. Nothing like the pictures, but I'm glad it's not as big as I thought it would be. Regardless, I'm beginning to feel like I've just bought another boat. I can successfully connect to the computer and both lights go steady GREEN when I have the TRS 1/4" inch and Variax cable plugged into the guitar. What get's me is the Workbench HD pop up blocker that states: The connected Variax is not compatible with Workbench HD. You must use a James Tyler Variax version 2.00 or higher. I was originally sold on the ability to adjust the custom tunings. There are some installed, but way out of whack. I saw a possible workaround for the Mac's but not sure it works for iOS. I've searched the Forums and found where others had issues of batteries or no 1/4" cable plugged in. That would lead to it should work.
Hi all. I've just purchased an FBV 3 board to go with my Spider IV 75. Firstly, I'm not happy that all the literature I've read before purchasing says the board is compatible with the amp. In reality, as I'm sure many of you are finding, this board is barely properly compatible with anything. Aside from the LEDs not working as advertised, I can't use it to update the firmware on the amp (WTF not?!). I also can't update the firmware on the board at the moment because despite it costing just Â£20 less than the amp itself, there is no USB cable included. How cheap can you get? I was prepared to make my peace with all that until I plugged it in and found, basically, that it didn't work. I'd have been better off playing catch with a kitchen knife than using the supplied manual, so after much pushing of buttons, and turning on & off suddenly, and for no obvious reason, it started working just fine. That was until I dared to use the tuner via the board. Since then basically every button is either unresponsive or takes 6-7 presses to have any effect. The pedal does not switch between volume & wah. I've tried another Ethernet cable which has had no effect. I might just have been unlucky and got a duff product, but I've read enough to suggest not. Can anyone suggest any way for me to fix it, or suggest why I should keep something that is, essentially, useless. I'm just glad I've kept the packaging. Thanks for your help/advice.
