PODxt Live & new Variax - compatibility

Recommended Posts

No, not available to my knowledge. The only published information I’m aware of simply states that the newer Variax models (beginning with the JTV) are not compatible with the POD XT. 

I am extrapolating from my own experience using an older Variax model (300) with a Helix. Some things like Helix preset-stored Variax model selection worked. Most things didn’t. So you may find that the POD XT Live can properly store and recall a Shuriken (for example) model. But that’s pure speculation on my part, and it may depend on the specific Variax guitar and installed firmware.

Depends. What’s more important to you? Full compatibility between the devices, or guitar features like mag pickups and alternate tunings that are not baked into the Variax model? These features are not present in the older Variaxes.
