I'm a line 6 / Variax newbie


I have been given a Variax 500 with a view to purchasing, the guitar has the USB interface, which displays two green lights when all connected via usb interface, however I have downloaded Workbench HD and when this software is activated a window pops up explaining that this software is only compatible with later model guitars.


Is there a way of accessing workbench to experiment with the guitar setup, do I need to use certain Line 6 products to enable this, or is this model of variax simply redudunt from a software perspective?


Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I'm considerably out of my knowledge depth!

You need to use the original Workbench product, named simply Workbench not Workbench HD.


You should be able to download and install it using Line 6 Monkey but if not you can download and install it directly from the Downloads section of this website. You may have to select an older version of Windows in the OS search field (e.g. Windows 7) in order to locate it, but I believe it should still run properly on Windows 10.
