Best firmware rev?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to hook up my new standard to WBHD shortly. I have no idea what firmware it's on yet. It's new from Sweetwater. So depending on what I see, stick with a certain firmware or just update to the latest for best results and sound? Thanks.

Well I hooked up but didn't deal with monkey and firmware. No problem in workbench. All I was really interested in was volume leveling strings and just as I remember with my 600, leveling makes a huge difference. I was gonna just play my first gig without doing it but I am so glad I took the trouble. After leveling strings and patches and other tid bits, man, what a difference. It seems to me that line 6 should at least be doing string relative levels as part of programming before the guitar ships out. It's ridiculously unbalanced and if you don't work through that, it really is a problem on gigs. Anyway, all good!

Balancing the string volume makes all the difference in the world. I think it should be in the manual as a first step.

I understand why they don't do that, it would sensibly raise the guitar price.

 

About the firmware: you cannot downgrade under 2.20 AFAIK.

Thanks. Is there a way to know which firmware the guitar is on without hooking it up to the computer? I'm guessing no but it sure would be nice.

No. There's no readout on the guitar hence no way to display its firmware version. You need the computer to do that.

Minus a Ouija board, Magic 8 Ball, or divine intervention...no. You can't tell what firmware is installed just by staring at it.
