Workbench Does Not Recoginze Jtv 59

Recommended Posts

OK...

I got the line 6 monkey to finally recoginze my new Variax jtv 59...but downloaded normal Workbench (not 2.0 yet)....

It would not recoginze my setup....which is

USB to computer, Weird Network cord from Variax to little box....then a guitar cord from Variax to my CI2 interface.....

 

what am I missing?.....

 

I saw on the diagram for USB to computer another type of cord (which was not shipped with the Variax to another box thingy....then a guitar cord from

the box thingy to the interface?

 

Also tried to download the HD Firmware so's I can install the Workbench HD....my computer says it is a file type that my computer cant handle?

 

I know ...... Stupid easy answer is coming....come on slap me with it upside my head.....

 

thanks for any help at all...

You must do the upgrade from inside of Line 6 Monkey.  Make sure that you have something plugged into the 1/4" jack in order to power the Variax.

pre 2.0 workbench won't work with post 2.0 guitars... FYI

if you have 2.0 firmware on the guitar you need workbench HD

I get the samething with my 59P.  Everything updated, correct connections made, Monkey sees the Variax but Workbrnch HD can't seem to connect.  If anyone has any solutions, please post, I want my Workbench HD.

YOU HAVE TO USE THE INTERFACE THAT CAME WITH YOUR GUITAR, NOT THE POD.

 

(intentional CAPS... i think many people are missing this important detail.)

RealZap, I appreciate the help I have seen you offer others on the forum.  However, I have no idea where you got the idea that I used my HD500.  I used the interface USB/Midi box that I got with myu Variax, I tried 3 different data cables, I rebooted the PC, I reflashed the guitar, you name it I tried it.  NO MATTER WHAT I DO, WORKBANCH HD DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THAT THE VARIAX IS ATTACHED.  WHILE MONKEY HAS NO ISSUE SEEING IT USING THE SAME EXACT INTERFACE (intentional caps :-) )

cool... you never know... sometimes its a simple detail that gets missed.

i would make sure you have 1/4" plugged into the guitar... and also i use a regular ethernet cable.

the variax cable that shipped with my interface never worked right!

Acknowledged yes, use a sound card with Scarlett 2I4 USB monitors everything running properly. The Variax in workbanch HD is connected, but the tuner does not indicate if there was no signal and audio monitoring. very strange
