JTV 1.9 not working correctly
by Inerzia on 2012-11-17 13:33:23.8440

Some days ago, I updated my JTV89 to 1.9 flash memory.
There's a noticeable improvement in palm muting, but the new models have not been writen into the guitar.
When I select any of the five positions in Custom1 bank, a very neutral and weak tone comes out when I play.
It's the same tone all through the five positions, and it doesn't admit alternate tunings. What's wrong?

I did it through my HD500 at first, downloading the flash memory both separately and with the monkey,

and then I tried doing it with the Variax USB Interface, and the result was the same.
Can anyone help? Is this happening to anybody else?

Just so you all know, after rolling back to 1.82, I installed 1.9 back again and everything is working as expected
BTW, yes, the new models are based on the five positions of the magnetic pickups, in fact, when
I opened that bank in workbench, I could see that all five positions are named after their corresponding

positions on the magnetic side:

  1. 89-Bridge
  2. 89-Bridge tap
  3. 89-Brdg/neck
  4. 89-Neck tap
  5. 89-Neck

Palm muting is better overall, not just on the new models.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
