This is quite possibly the best product for guitar players ever. Being able to do things that are impossible to do to your beautiful guitar is amazing. Making a guitar on workbench takes a total of 30 sec. There is only one word to describe variax workbench...AMAZING!!!!
I read some reviews of people claiming that the firmware upgrade alone is worth the price of the workbench software. This was not a sales pitch, but the truth. The firmware download that you have to do before using Workbench put new life in all of it's sounds. I then set up a patch like an upright bass, an electric bass, even a hammered dulcimer. The twelve string sounds real and you can even adjust the detune and volume between strings. I had a problem with my guitar after I changed strings to 10 - 46 with a wound third. The 3rd string was quiet. Now you can even adjust the volume of each string. I would like to set up a patch that sounds like a nylon string guitar so decay would be a nice feature in the future. Also a mandoline patch would be nice. Overall I rate this product a 10. All I can say is WOW. Thanks Line6 for a good product and thank you Musician's Friend for carrying it for a good price.
This software is absolutly amazing. I rated the value as a 10 because, I own both the Variax & POD XTL, so I got it for free!This software/interface opens up every possibility for your Variax guitar. It also is very well designed and everything works easily, and exactly how it should. It allows for complete control over any of the models in the guitar. You can even replace EVERY guitar that is pre-set into the instrument with your own custom creations. I would highly recommend it to ANYONE with a Variax.
This was a lot better than I expected it to be. The alternate tunings don't sound artificial at all. My favorite thing about it is the fact that you can raise the pitch up to an octave which can be used for some incredible solos. Haven't had any problems with it.
If you puchase a Variax, you will not experience all that it has to offer if you don't purchase this software as well. It's very easy to understand and easier to modify the guitar models. I just wish it would allow for using more than just 2 pickups at a time. I would love to be able to have a Lester in the Black Beauty configuration (3 pickups).
