Firmware update/Variax standard questions

Recommended Posts

Great to hear about the firmware update! thank you line 6.

Firmware Update/Model Pack questions:
1. Global EQ as in for every patch in the unit, or global as in each patch has a global eq? (the latter being preferable as you could then save eq'd patches on a per venue basis)
2. Will there/Could there be effect packs in the future?
3. Will the amp model packs have a trial period so we can ascertain which ones to buy?

Variax (Standard) Questions:
1. Will there be any new models shipping with the Variax Standard or just the existing ones?
2. Might us JTV Variax owners expect some new models in the future? Like a classical nylon string guitar or a mandolin??

By the way love the look of the variax standard, great job!

Thanks in advance

Firmware:

1 - Why would a GLOBAL EQ work on a preset by preset basis?! It's GLOBAL, and if you want to EQ your different presets, just had an EQ to them and tweak it!

2 - That would be nice!

3 - Also, a good idea!

 

Variax:

1 - Don't think so

2 - Maybe...don't know

 

My dear JTV...this standard one is horrible imo!

not a fan of the visuals on this new model myself.

kind of a throwback to those vintage peavey guitars..with a bit of the modern low end yamaha thrown in.

but options are always good! and maybe there's more to come? (i have no idea)

 

i'm pretty certain that the model packs will have a 30 day return policy like the current offerings though.

go here and add ideas for effects packs: http://line6.ideascale.com/

the current offerings are from the M series, and i believe the HD pods have all the models the M series offers.

perhaps there is some X-series models you miss? (tape eater?)  or even new models....

in any case throw together a list and get some votes... that will get their attention.

To my mind pug dealer, the purpose of the global EQ would be to iron out issues with rooms, without messing with your amp settings, as in a sense every patch will perform slightly differently in different environments (venues), I've been working around it by creating patches per venue and using a "master patch" as a starting point and then using an EQ. But, using an EQ takes up a slot, so I was hoping global EQ would free one up (most other settings are save-able per patch) so I hoped it would be similar as my understanding is global EQ will be in the settings menu? so like being able to set variax settings globally or pre patch I think that would be a nice option.... also be cool if you could use the momentary amp knobs to set it rather than fiddling through a menu.

 

Re: the variax standard, I love my JTV69, but to me it looks a bit too star wars, especially the headstock which is fugly, I think the standard looks more strat like and I prefer having the model selectors and tuning dial in the same place (like the jtv-59) finally, the head stock is slightly more palatable.

in another thread they stated that the variax standard would only support 2.0 firmware or better... (the equivalent at least... might be called variax standard fs 1.0 for all i know.)

but there will be no version available to that variax with the earlier models.
