  1. Hey everyone hoping someone can help me here. I'm trying to get my setup always "ready to role" based on my situation. I have my Helix setup to my PC through USB, setting the helix as amp and the cabinet is selected on the Powercab+ 112 using an AES cable between the helix and powercab. Using Variax as main work horse tl:dr - does anyone know if the AES Digital Output option can capture the final result and play it in protools? or am i doomed to just use the cabs in the Helix and only use the powercab at 'flat' settings? i am outputting the sound with 'digital' to use the AES cable. i have a keyboard hooked up thru the interface as well. it is using AUX in for direct audio playback, but then midi output for midi controlling in pro tools Because of this, path 1 input is VARIAX is outputting to DIGITAL path 2 input is AUX and output is USB 1/2 I'm able to record audio tracks fine from the keyboard in this setup, as well as capture midi. I'm also needing to make sure i can always do the ghost capture for raw guitar input (i have that on USB 7 no issues) If i set the output of path 1 to USB 3/4 i get the audio of the guitar without the settings in PowerCab. Main issue appears to be that - DIGITAL does not send/recieve - only really sends to PowerCab, and i'm not going to be able to capture that unless i have audio sending from the powercab back into the helix - but in this situation it is now a problem because i would have to change the Path 2 to support this audio. so back to the tl:dr - does anyone know if the AES Digital Output option can capture the final result and play it in protools? or am i doomed to just use the cabs in the Helix and only use the powercab at 'flat' settings?
  2. Hello everybody, so the under-the-saddle piezo in my variax 300 steel acoustic stopped working. motherboard is fine. does anybody know where i can find a replacement that fits? are there still original parts somewhere out there? thanks in advance. thommy
  3. Hi. I have to 2 identical JTV-59 and 1 of them has a significant weaker signal on both Signal paths; PU + piezo The one I do prefer has a hot output-level that drives the cleaner amp models of the POD HD500 the right way into crunch. The other one doesn't tickle the crunch out of clean tones the right way. It sounds a bit boring in comparison. So what can I do? Would raising the magnetics always make the piezo signal hotter somehow? or so I have to raise the magnetics and level out the overall output of the weaker JTV59 to taste? I don't like the idea of managing 2 different sets of presets on both of my 59s.
  4. Hey Guys, I've been trying to make a helix preset where the string volume changes from snapshot to snapshot, and can't seem to make it work. In my case I'm trying to go from a Open G# with string 6 at volume 0% on 3 snapshots, to a standard tuned guitar with all strings 100% volume on the 4th snapshot. The tuning changes fine per snapshot, but the string volume remains at 100%. I know I can work around this through workbench, but I shouldn't have to, it's supposed to work. My input variax setting is - "per preset". I've checked every global setting and have found nothing that should effect it. Guitar is JTV59, flash memory 2.23, Helix 2.82.  Has anybody made a preset with snapshots changing string volumes? I noticed, if I leave the preset, and return, it works temporarily, the 6th string is dead (which is what I want) in snapshot 1... But as soon as I go to any other snapshot, the volume goes back to 100% on all the snapshots.
  5. I Posted this topic under Helix, but had no success, so since it is also a Variax topic, I thought I would try here too...

  6. What's the best way to get a better palm mute chug sound out of the Standard? The models, so far, to me don't seem to be tight enough. Seems like a fairly common problem due to the piezo being behind your palm. So is there a good setting to use on the model that works well? I'll keep playing around with my Firehawk to see if I can get a good sound from it using the single coil magnetic pickup, too. My existing patches don't sound great with the magnetic pickup, so any tips there are welcome. Last resort would be replacing the bridge pickup. Any particular ones anyone has had good success with?
  7. Hi, I am completely new to the variax and maybe I am missing something simple. I am running the Variax through a G10 Relay into an Amplfi. All line 6 no outside imposter gear! The problem i have is that when I select an alternative tuning I hear both the magnetic pickups and the alternative tuning through the amp. I thought by turning on the variax it automatically disabled the magnetic pickups? Any help appreciated. Also if I've missed something completely obvious light mockery is also welcomed! Thanks

  9. Hi guys, The D string on my Variax Acoustic 700 is electronically barely audible. I don't believe it's anything more than a problematic connection between the D piezo and the bridge PCB**. Can anyone name guys in or near Sydney Australia who've got experience with the insides of this guitar? And for the interim, any troubleshooting methods to help further diagnose where the problem sits? Thanks all, much appreciated. -Dawes **My reasoning for this is due to my experience with the guitar in the few months I've owned it. - Purchased in March/April from an interstate seller. - A friend living near seller tested guitar on my behalf, gave it the ok. - Friend loosened strings before he shipped the guitar to me. - Upon arrival, the D string piezo was barely audible. - I loosened string, carefully applied pressure to piezo and retightened string onto it. Success. - Some intermittent dropouts for a few days but got it under control and have had no further problems since March/April. - I recently loosened the strings; now D string is once again not working, this time it seems unfixable. (I did manage to get a very, very distorted -but appropriately volumed- note out of it briefly but I think that was a death rattle; hoping it's not the ribbon or PCB!)
  10. Hey all - Does a magnetic pickup setting short that doesn't appear to exist in the same position using Variax (instead of magnetics) generally mean there's a wiring problem on the magnetic side? Or does that generally mean the 5 way switch is faulty? Not seeking a concrete answer - more like a "What are the chances of A versus B?" Background I have a JTV-69 with JBE pickups in it, and at a gig last weekend the middle pickup (when playing magnetics) crapped out. Was able to get sound via the piezo/Variax with the switch in the 2, 3 and 4 spots, but I know the switch doesn't behave like a normal 5 way so I don't know what, if anything, that means. Before I go through the production of taking everything apart, would like to know the odds that it's a wiring problem versus a switch problem - reason being the PCB replacement parts are on back order at Full Compass. If it's likely to be wiring, I'll just try to chase the short with my multimeter, but if it's likely to be a switch issue, then I'll wait until I get the replacement parts from Full Compass. The pickups were fine for years; the only thing I can think of is that the gig I played at was outdoors and it was a chilly (40-50 F) day, so maybe the failure was weather-related.
  11. Hello! I am relatively new to the Helix / variax scene. I have had my helix for a few months, and just picked up a JTV-69S yesterday along with a Variax ethernet cable.. Here's the scenario: Lets say that I have a preset that is set up for Variax acoustic models. How can I assign foot switches on the Helix such that foot switch 1 brings up "Acoustic D", footswitch 2 brings up "Acoustic D12" etc. It would be very handy to have one preset that allows control of multiple Variax models. Thanks, and I look forward to your replies.
  12. Clang tone, a subtle ringing pitched sound caused by the longitudinal wave travelling along the string, is a phenomenon inherent to all vibrating tensioned strings. Piezos and microphones can pick up clang tone, but magnetic pickups will not. Variables that may exacerbate clang tone include: · Piezo saddles that are not properly seated · Playing techniques · High-gain amps or high-gain amp model usage · The strings themselves · The individual composition of the guitar · The setup of the guitar or any combination of these contributors. As such, there is no one-size-fits-all way to address the clang tone phenomenon. With Variax being a piezo-based guitar, we've built filters into the firmware to address clang tone. We have recently reviewed these filters and have come to the conclusion that they are already optimized, and further adjustments to the filters would not be beneficial. Each case of clang tone is unique, so we cannot guarantee that any or all of the actions below, when performed by Line 6-authorized service technicians or a luthier, will result in addressing clang tone: · Running the latest firmware (v2.22 or newer) · Replacing strings · Using at least a .010 gauge string set. · Cleaning out the cutout in the saddle where the piezo element sits (use pot/fader cleaner, not WD40) · Replacing piezos (available at www.FullCompass.com, part number 11-00-0010) If none of these actions resolve the issue, please contact Line 6 support at www.Line6.com/support, detailing your actions taken, if any.
  13. Hi! I'm new on this forum, I'm from Italy. Recently I purchased a Variax Standard white, I would like to transplant it into a stratocaster body and consequently replace the neck with a maple neck. I've already made a transplant of a Variax 300 into this body with fake pickups but now I would upgrade this body with all Variax Standard electronics and real pickups. Does exist any project on the web? Have anybody tried this transplant?
  14. Where can one buy replacement necks for a JTV69? I checked with Warmoth and their deal with Line 6 ended long ago; Full Compass doesn't have them. Looking for a lefty maple neck made to fit without my having to question the fit of or take any measurements to have built or what have you. Doesn't have to say Variax on it, just has to be straight 6 lefty maple that I can also put an Earvana on. Anybody know?

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 guitars 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 remaining 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. Alt tunings for JTV-59 and JTV-69: MODEL STANDARD: E A D G B E DROP D: D A D G B E 1/2 DOWN: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb DROP Db: Db Ab Db Gb Bb 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 B D RESO G: G B D G B D OPEN A: E A C# E A E BARITONE: B E A D F# B Alt tunings for JTV-89/89F: MODEL STANDARD: E A D G B E DROP D: D A D G B E 1/2 DOWN: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb DROP Db: Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb 1 DOWN: D G C F A D DROP C: C G C F A D m3 DOWN: Db Gb B E Ab Db DROP B: B Gb B E Ab Db M3 DOWN: C F Bb Eb G C DROP Bb: Bb F Bb Eb G C BARITONE: B E A D F# B Workbench Interface Q: How do I get the Variax Workbench interface to recognize the James Tyler Variax guitar? 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 “žModel”œ und “žStandard”œ. Stellen Sie den Alternet Tuning Knopf auf “žModel”œ 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 “žStandard”œ, 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”œ Kabel in den Ausgang der Gitarre um diese anzuschalten. (Die Workbench Schnittstelle startet die Gitarre NICHT!, stattdessen können Sie einfach ein ¼”œ Kabel anschließen als Dummy sozusagen.) Das andere Ende des ¼”œ 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.

Batterie : Quelle batterie est incluse ? Nous utilisons des batteries Li-Ion. Une batterie chargée fournit 12 heures de performance. Il y en a un indicateur de vie de la batterie avec 4 LEDs. Poussez le bouton rond noire : 4 LED : 9+ heures 3 LED : 6+ heures 2 LED : 3+ heures 1 LED : moins que 3 heures 1 LED clignotant : moins que 1 heure, rechargez la batterie Attention : Il y en a deux façons de d”™alimentation sans batterie. Si la guitare est connectée via câble VDI à un autre appareil VDI Digital comme le POD X3 Live, l'alimentation est fournie par cette connexion. Ou vous utilisez un XPS-DI avec un câble TRS. Avec un XPS-DI, vous pouvez alimenter la guitare, mais c”™est aussi une boxe A/B pour envoyer un signale du DI au Board ou un ampli acoustique avec certains modèles. Si vous alimentez votre guitare avec un de ces méthodes, déconnectez la batterie. Combien de temps faut-il pour recharger complètement une batterie à plat JTV ? Plus ou moins 12 heures. Vous pouvez jouer 4 à 6 heures si vous le chargez 30-45 minutes. Qu'est-ce que le voyant signifie sur le chargeur de batterie JTV? Une lumière rouge solide veut dire que la batterie se recharge. Un rouge clignotant veut dire que la batterie est à pleine charge ou que la batterie a été insérée incorrectement. Si vous savez que la batterie n”™est pas complètement chargée, remettez la batterie. Tuning Gears : Les guitares JTV-59US et JTV-89US ont des mécaniques Hipshot Classic. Ces mécaniques sont lisses et précises à 18 : 1. Les guitares JTV-69US ont des mécaniques Hipshot Grip-Lock. Ces mécaniques sont décalées pour une stabilité maximale. Pour les guitares JTV coréennes, nous utilisons des mécaniques scellés 16 : 1 sur tous les modèles. Ce sont des mécaniques solides moulés sous pression. Comme pour la JTV-69US, nous utilisons des mécaniques déplacés et de verrouillage. Les pièces de verrouillage dans les mécaniques sont déplacées également pour correspondre au format des mécaniques : 23,4mm (pour les cordes Mi grave et La), 21,9mm (pour les cordes Ré et Sol), et 20,4mm (pour les cordes Si et Mi aigu). Nouveaux modèles acoustiques HD : Quand est-ce que vous avec ajoutés ces modèles aux guitares JTV ? Les nouveaux modèles ont été ajoutés avec la version du firmware 1.81 et sont inclus avec tous les versions après. Qu'est-ce que le bouton « Tone » fait sur les nouveaux modèles JTV HD Acoustic ? Le bouton Tone sur les nouveaux modèles acoustiques HD est utilisé pour ajuster la quantité de résonance de la caisse. Les derniers 10% suppriment la résonance complètement (90-100%) pour les joueurs qui le préfèrent. Bouton Alternate Tuning Comment est-ce que le bouton « Alternate Tuning » fonctionne ? Le bouton Alt Tune peut être utilisé avec tous les presets qui sont enregistrés sur ce bouton. Le bouton a 12 configurations, avec « Model » et « Standard ». Si vous le mettez sur « Model », vous pouvez accéder les réglages preset que vous avez créé dans le logiciel Variax Workbench avec le bouton « Alternate Tuning ». Ces réglages sont enregistrés sur le bouton Model. Mettez-le sur « Standard » pour avoir la configuration EADGBE normale sur tous les modèles. Les autres sont tons des configurations de guitares JTV spécifiques. Configurations « Alternate Tuning » pour JTV-59 et JTV-69: MODEL STANDARD: Mi La Ré Sol Si Mi DROP D: Ré La Ré Sol Si Mi 1/2 DOWN: Mib Lab Réb Solb Sib Mib DROP Db: Réb Lab Réb Solb Sib Mib 1 DOWN: Ré Sol Do Fa La Ré DADGAD: Ré La Ré Sol La Ré OPEN D: Ré La Ré Fa# La Ré BLUES G: Ré Sol Ré Sol Si Ré RESO G: Sol Si Ré Sol Si Ré OPEN A: Mi La Do# Mi La Mi BARITONE: Si Mi La Ré Fa# Si Configurations « Alternate Tuning » pour JTV-89 et JTV-89F: MODEL STANDARD: Mi La Ré Sol Si Mi DROP Ré La Ré Sol Si Mi 1/2 DOWN: Mib Lab Réb Solb Sib Mib DROP Db: Réb Lab Réb Solb Sib Mib 1 DOWN: Ré Sol Do Fa La Ré DROP C: Do Sol Do Fa La Ré m3 DOWN: Réb Solb Si Mi Lab Réb DROP B: Si Solb Si Mi Lab Réb M3 DOWN: Do Fa Sib Mib Sol Do DROP Bb: Sib Fa Sib Mib Sol Do BARITONE: Si Mi La Ré Fa# Si Interface Workbench: Comment puis-je faire l'interface Variax Workbench reconnaître la guitare James Tyler Variax? Assurez-vous que vous avez téléchargé et installé les pilotes les plus récentes pour l”™interface Workbench d”™ici : Line 6 Downloads Assurez-vous que la batterie de la guitare est chargée et installé correctement dans la guitare. Connectez l”™interface Variax Workbench à l”™ordinateur avec le câble VDI inclus. Connectez un câble ¼”™”™ à la sortie de la guitare (parce que Workbench n”™alimente pas la guitare). L”™autre extrémité du câble ne doit pas être connectée. Si vous voyez deux lumières verts sur l”™interface Workbench, tous est configuré correctement. Réinitialisation d'usine et mise à jour Flash Memory : Pourquoi est-ce que la procédure de la réinitialisation décrit dans le mode d”™emploi ? La fonction de la réinitialisation d”™usine décrit dans le mode d”™emploi n”™existe plus. Nous l”™avons enlevé pour faire de la place pour les modèles Variax HD Acoustic. Tous les modèles avec Flash Memory v1.8 ou plus récent sont affectés. Pour réinitialiser réinstaller ou mettre à jour le Flash Memory utilisez ce lien : Variax Reflash and Software update F.A.Q. Si je règle les cordes de la guitare, est ““ce que je peux utiliser le capo virtuel ? Ce n”™est pas recommandé parce qu”™il pourrait causer des anomalies sonores. Les guitares ont été conçues de régler à nouveau de réglage E standard. Utiliser le capo virtuel avec un autre tuning n”™est pas supporté.
  16. Hey guys, I have a Variax JTV but I don't have the USB interface in order to use it with the Workbench. If you have a Variax USB and don't need it anymore because you have the Helix or another unit that interfaces with the Variax, I would appreciate if you would be willing to donate it or sell it for a reasonable price. The brand new unit is too expensive for me. Thanks.
  17. I don't have access to any variax in store. The standard feels like a Pacifica, great, easy enough to try out. What do the 59 and 69 most closely resemble? In particular the neck; the body doesn't matter as much to me. I prefer smaller necks and fretboards. My current guitar has nut width of 42mm, with medium jumbo frets and a 9.5 inch radius. Seems like all the variax have flatter profiles? But it's not just the specs, of course, so any specific (hopefully common!) necks I can sit down with to try out before mail ordering would be appreciated!
  18. Ok guys I’m in limbo. I play a lot of P&W. But I’m also a metal head lol. Don’t say it I know, I know. Lol. I love the helix for bass, electric guitar, recording/creating music. In fact I sold my pedalboard gear and HD500x for it, so I definitely love the line 6 floor rigs. So I do have an acoustic but I would love to not have to switch guitars to do so. I know my way around the helix a little but I’m new to the Variax world. Is it possible to accomplish the acoustic sound on a electric guitar without a Variax? Or should I invest in the Variax?
  19. Just bought a Variax Standard. Updated to latest firmware (was 2.21, now 2.23). Workbench HD loaded and working. All behaving as it should so far. The behavior of the battery status lights on the back of the guitar is a little odd, and not as described in the manual. Battery is fully charged. First press of the status button shows 4 lights, as it should. A second press lights up lights 1 to 4 in sequence (1 comes on, then goes off, then 2 does the same, then 3, then 4). A third press flashes light 2, then light 1, then light 1 a second time, then light 2 again. Fourth press goes back to showing the status (4 lights on again). Is this as it should be? What does it mean? It's not random - the sequence is exactly the same every time, so I'm guessing it's some sort of testing or status indication. I'm a bit worried about battery life though - I bought the guitar brand new today, but I know it's older stock and the serial number on the guitar starts Y15, which I guess means it's a 2015 guitar. Shelf life on these types of batteries is typically 3 years or so whether used or not.
  20. If you know are a left hander or you know a left hander, then why not vote for a left handed JTV? http://line6.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Left-handed-JTV/506338-23508 UPDATE: While it is may be possible to rewire a right handed JTV, add a new button for the guitar strap, etc - It would void the warranty, and would leave you with a guitar that isn't exactly ergonomic. Hendrix shined with his upside-down Strat, but alas we aren't all Hendrix! To anyone who is left handed by nature, but has forced themselves to play the "right" way up - Well done. Vote anyway?
  21. Hi - I know some of you out there are hoping to upgrade some of your gear, so maybe I can help you save on eBay or Reverb or Gbase fees. I've been spoiled with a modded JTV69 that's got a Moses graphite neck, locking tuners and JBE pickups. Looking for a #2 (or maybe a new #1) could be a 69 or an 89 or a Strat-ish style transplant (the last, only if it's a bug-free install with properly shielded cavity, etc.), but want to see something better than stock. Pickups upgraded to a noiseless variety, locking tuners, I'd be SUPER happy if there were another graphite necked one out there. No Floyd Rose please - I change strings too often for that - standard trem or hardtail. Hit me up with DMs if you're interested. Pay by PayPal, would require shipping to NJ. I can pick up within most of NJ and NYC. Whatcha got?
  22. when I create a preset , on the SNAPSHOT 1 - let suppose a clean electric on the Variax , then I create a acoustic preset on SNAPSHOT 2 using the Variax - let suppose acoustic model on the Variax . when I switch SNAPSHOT from 1 to 2 should the SNAPSHOT control the Variax , or the knob on the Variax will always be what's determines the guitar model ?
  23. 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) is NOT 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.

  24. Hello. I'm quite tempted to purchase a Helix to replace my trusty Bass Pod XT Live now that Line6 no longer provides working software for in on macOS Mojave ; but I'm weary of one thing: I'm using a Variax bass with the Bass POD, and they have dedicated presets, and communication mechanisms. However, in the Helix user manual, there are plenty of references to what one can do with the Variax Standard or James Tyler guitar, but exactly zero reference to the Variax basses. What exactly is the level of interaction I can expect ? e.g.: "nothing", "just power", "power and audio", "bass knobs work like EXP-n pedals like on Variax guitars", "preset change can change the emulated bass in the bass ? What else ?
  25. I have the 'dream rig'. I have become more and more frustrated trying to get decent usable live tones from the rig to the point where I'm thinking of chopping it in for a guitar, an amp, and a couple of FX pedals. Glen Delaune has some wonderful sounding patches which I bought but when I changed the amps in the patches to the 'Pre' version, the sound died. When I try to ramp up the volume, it sounds like I'm playing through an old 5w Tandy (RadioShack in the US) blown speaker underwater. Now, if I leave the patches as they are; using the non-Pre amps models, the sound is great. My question therefore is why should I bother with the Pre's? Am I using the valves in my DT25 head as they were intended or am I in some what bypassing all of the goodness in the rig by using the full modelled amps? For reference here is my setup; JTV59p connected with VDI to HD500 connected with AES/EBU via L6 link to DT25 head connected with 2 x mono 6.3mm to 2 x L6 1x12 cabs Global inputs on the HD500 are set to Varian 1 and Aux 2
