Does Workbench Always Upload 60 Presets Every Time Its Activated

Recommended Posts

Every time i turn on workbench i have to wait a while while it uploads what seems to be 60 presets.

 

is this meant to happen.

 

also when turning the volume or tone controls i hear a slight whine (through my headphones). whine stops when i get to the position i want (it sounds like an electronic noise rather than mechanical)

Yeah, it's pulling whatever models are currently saved to the guitar into Workbench. If everything you have in there is stock, then it doesn't matter and you can hit cancel...but if you've messed with anything [string volumes, creating cutom models, etc] and want to keep what you have, let it go through the motions or you might accidentally overwrite changes that you've made.

Yes - Workbench HD default is to upload and automatically save a backup of all 60 presets.  However, if you don't want it to do this then you can simply CANCEL the upload by clicking the cancel button.   Saves a bunch of time!

 

I don't know about the noise you are hearing though through headphones when adjusting volume or tone controls. Maybe someone else has experienced that and knows a solution.

You'll hear that if you're listening/tweaking while connected to Workbench. Don't know why.

 Cheers - just wanted to make sure everything was working as normal

There has  always been some noise generated when WB communicates with the Variax.  When you move knobs, the change is sent to WB.  Sounds like a clicking noise.
