Original Variax Workbench Patch Exchange Area


Recommended Posts

I have set up an area for "Pre HD " Variax Users to  exchange Variax Workbench Patches.

This includes all "Pre HD 2.0" Variax Electric Models:  300, 500, 600, 700, and All Tyler Variax models (Pre HD 2.0 )





The need for this became apparent after we set up a similar patch exchange area for the Tyler HD 2.0 Workbench Patches  I set up here:

After 6 weeks - So far only 21 downloads  - I assumed there would be a lot more activity  / interest from on these free WorkBench patches for all Variax owners.


No wonder Line-6 excludes Variax Workbench patch sharing at Custom Tone

Hi Guys n Gals

In February 2016 I bought a pre-loved Variax 700 electric in blue with PSU and power pedal. Also separately got a new Workbench interface from Yam UK. Downloaded the HD software in my ignorance, found it wouldn't work but the pre HD does with the 700


I have had a bit of a tinker around with W/Bench and its pre HD software.

Now I want to know about tone patches, is it just a matter of saving them to my WIN10 PC then loading them into W/bench and then copying to my 700, button up / button down etc.


May main music line is playing chords / rhythm in a ceilidh (Barn/Square) dance band in Northern Lincolnshire, England. Usually on a brilliant Freshman 12string acoustic with soundhole pickup. I'm getting a little tingling in my fretting index finger so wanted something with a slightly narrower fretboard but equally B-I-G sound. The 700 seems to fit really well.

Another band I help sometimes, needs a more electric type of sound. Guess what, the 700 scores again.


All the best and many thanks in advance

and apologies if I posted in the wrong zone

  Hello all.

   I am brand new to the group and I just purchased a used Variax 500 with a POD XT Live. I am using an HP laptop with windows 7. I have downloaded the workbench program as well as line 6 Monkey and have connectivity from the PC to both the Variax and POD XT. i upgraded the Version on the XT and tried to reset the Variax back to the original patches but only succeeded in losing all of the patches.


   I found your website (Thank you) and the patch exchange and tried to upload the patches (Bundles) into the Variax with the POD XT. IF I use the Sync feature, I get an error message telling me that the Variax is not responding. Workbench suggest I power off the XT and power it back on, go back into workbench and hit refresh. Doing this shows that the program is writing to the Variax but after it is complete I still have no patches. The Variax was working with no issues and the XT seems to be fine. I have all of the normal amps and effects working. Sorry to be so long winded but I am a technician and hope this explains everything. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi, you sound like someone that can help me. I have been trying to reset my Variax 300 to factory sound set but with no luck, in fact it has totally earsed my sounds completely  and my guitar is now voice of all patches and plays just one sound on all presets. I have the latest and last version of Workbench and Monkey and I have updated all drivers. When I run Monkey there is no Reflash option to do a factory reset, so I tried replacing the bundle in Workbench using the default bundle there but no joy. What am I doing wrong.

Does the Fender Bass setting for the Variax 600 sound the same for both the 4 string bass and the Fender V1 Bass or do I need to use workbench to try and create a new model and as I want to try and get the sound Duane Eddy had using a Fender V1 that is an octave down from standard tuning does that setting also drop the tuning a full octave ?

You have to be a member of the Roland VGuitar Forum to download these. Is there anyway to get these without having to join Roland VG Forums?


You can buy them from the dude in Czech republic who joined VGuitarforums for free,  then downloaded our shared  Variax Workbench files  and is now selling them for $10 on Ebay for a profit  ( not me) 






or hit up Ideascale


and petition Line-6 to do the right thing and add a Variax Workbench User to User Patch exchange area at www.customtone.com

( but after  12 years of Variax ownership , I see Line-6  remains ineffective and not interested in pursuing this dream.
