download new tones to Variax

Recommended Posts

I'd like to download a ukulele tone to my JT Variax 69.  There aren't any so I thought I might try modifying a mandolin tone.  Maybe it's just me or maybe it's the lack of organization of the material on this site, or just possibly one can't download new tones to a JT Variax.  But if someone would let me know if it's possible and, if so, how it's done, I'd appreciate it.  


Also, I just looked at the software downloads and note that the Variax HD upgrade is not available.  Did they take it off the shelf because it's that bad?

You can download other people's tones to your JTV, but there's no site like CustomTone to get different tones. As far as a ukulele, I suppose you could try modifying an acoustic. You can mute strings in Workbench, so you could set up a 4-string tuning equal to a uke.


As far as the HD update, I'm not sure where you're looking, but it's definitely still there. 2.10 is the latest version. I just did this screen cap a few mins ago.

Found it.  I like the interface better.  I did work on a uke tone and it's horrible.  First try so no worries, but are there tutorials on using the software to tweak tones?


Thanks for your help.
