Any reason why all my tuning in my Variax sound half step lower? Do I need A factory reset? If so, How?

Are you using custom tunings on the Variax guitar just with Workbench and incorporating the tunings into the Variax model, or are you using custom tunings with a Line 6 device (e.g. Helix) that supports custom tuning per preset?

 

If the former, make sure the Tuning knob on your Variax guitar is set to Model allowing the individual Variax model’s custom tuning to be active. Your symptom would be explained if the Variax tuning knob is set to 1/2 Down.

 

If the latter, three possible reasons come to mind. There may be others.


1. The Variax setting in the Input block of your Helix presets may have been set to Global at a time when the active Variax settings forced a 1/2 step down custom tuning. Change the Variax Setting parameter to ‘Per Preset’.

 

2.  A specific preset may have used the Custom Tuning feature to force the 1/2 step down tuning, and all subsequent presets you tested use the Don’t Force setting for the Custom Tuning parameter. Try switching to a preset that forces a standard tuning. If that resolves the issue you will have to edit all affected presets.

 

3. Your Variax guitar’s physical tuning knob is set to Model and the active model incorporates the 1/2 step down tuning. Change the Variax tuning knob to Standard or use Workbench HD to change the tuning to Standard and use Helix presets to control the tuning.

Well this is refreshing... usually the gripe is that the alt tunings either don't work at all, or they just suck.;)
