need help to indentify

Recommended Posts

There are plenty of articles in the forums and on the site. But you'll need to use the "original" version of Workbench, and not the newer HD version. You'll also need a USB dongle to connect to your PC or Mac. Also install Line 6 Monkey. There are lots of steps to getting the Variax connected properly to Workbench, but its worth the effort. Learn to fish.


Here's a sample forum thread ... there are many more on using Workbench:

You don't have to get an XT or X3.....the cheapest path is to get a USB dongle, connected like (Variax guitar --> Variax cable or RJ-45 cable --> USB dongle --> USB cable --> computer) AND Variax --> guitar cable --> amp (to monitor your tones).

the $99 kit includes the sw, RJ-45 cable, USB cable, and the dongle. A used POD is more fun, though, and more reliable for the connection.
