Wondered if you had any joy getting your variax 300 connected to Workbench.

 

I have a 300 and a POD x3 Live. Both work great on their own. Monkey can see the X3 Live and GearBox can connect and change the X3L parameters fine, but when I fire up Workbench it isn't able to connect. It shows a question mark icon against the X3 Live. So I cant see beyond the X3L to the variax guitar.

 

I dont have a usb adaptor to try a direct connection to the PC

 

Any thoughts?

Did you try 1/4" cable plugged into the Variax?  I'm not familiar using X3 POD's with Gen 1 Vax but I've learned to always connect 1/4" cable to Vax output when doing programming.

For connecting to Workbench, it will only work using the VDI cable.

1/4" TRS won't work.
