Don't have a USB dongle, nor an interface...would this work??

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I have a JTV variax but I have no USB interface to change it's parameters, and I have no other interface (POD, helix, etc.). The interface by iytself is 150$ here, which is absurd.

 

Would this cable make the Workbench HD see my JTV and allow me to update firmware/upload patches and change params?

Thanks!

So how come that web page says that the cable works and that the Line 6 Monkey and Variax Workbench recognize the Variax? (just by using this cable)

Try contacting the author of the web page. Note that the post was nearly four years ago.

1) He is talking about old Variax, going to MIDI, and MIDI boxes are active devices. He doesn't just use a cable.

2) The correct interface set up for JTV is an active device, which is required to get it to work.

There are no short cuts in this.

The internet says lots of things.... most of which is to be taken with a metric ton of salt.

Who mentioned just using the cable without a MIDI device?

 

Clearly this cable is intended to use both MIDI IN and MIDI OUT device on an audio interface.

 

So does that make that an "active" device?
