New Variax 700 Acoustic Owner with Newbie Questions...

Recommended Posts

I just bought a Variax 700 Acoustic off Ebay. I Also own a POD HD500, and just bought the VDI cable.

 

Questions:

 

1) Will the Workbench HD work with the 700 Acoustic?

 

2) Can I use Workbench with the 700 Acoustic to build patches that use a Strat Body or Les Paul Body etc Single Coil or Humbuckers etc...?

Oh Also are there custom tone downloads for Variax Acoustic and does it even make sense to have them?

 

Can I use the POD HD500 to store Patches that can select a Acoustic Model and an Alternative Tuning?

Regarding #1,... 

No, the newer HD version is not compatible with the older Variax guitars. 

 

The "HD" version of Workbench is for JTV, Standard and Shurikens with

Flash v2.00 or higher. Different circuit board, different programming.

Which Workbench version can be used w/Variax Acoustic 700? Where can it be located? Thank you. Cheers!
