VDI Cable and variax standard


Recommended Posts

Hello all, 


I'm very new to the helix and variax community and I recently purchased a variax standard. After having it for a few months I realized I might want a longer cable to use the variax in live or practice settings so I purchased a line 6 VDI cable. 


I plugged it into my variax and into my helix but I was dismayed to find that the modeling components for the variax did not turn on like I expected. I was hoping this cable would just function as a longer ethernet cable like the one that came with the guitar but was also smiliar in function to a regular guitar cord. 


Does the VDI cable allow for modeling while using it or would I still be reliant on batteries while using it? Really hoping I'm doing something wrong here.
