    Line 6 Variax Workbench Software (Macintosh and Windows) Product Description

    With Variax Workbench, you can select from a complete list of guitar bodies, pickups and placement, tone and volume controls, and tweak until you've come up with a guitar that is truly unique. With Workbench, it's like having all the greatest pickups, controls, and bodies of the greatest guitar collection, all at your instant disposal.

    This combination USB interface and software package for Variax Electric family guitars allows you to see and hear the physical changes to your custom guitar in real time. Ever wonder what a single-coil pickup would sound like on a hollowbody tuned a whole octave down? Probably not. That's because it wasn't a reality... until now.

    Electric Features:

    - Works with Variax 300, 500, 600 or 700
    - Compatible with any Windows PCs or Mac OSX computers
    - Allows you to completely customize any or all of the sounds on the Variax model knob and 5-way selector
    - Create custom or alternate tunings for any electric guitar you construct
    - Easily create, store, share and back-up thousands of guitar models using the librarian feature
    - Workbench's detailed graphics allow you to see and hear the guitars you create in real time
    - Includes custom RJ-45 cable, USB cable and hardware interface
    - Interface is powered through USB connection and small enough to throw in your guitar's gig bag (if not your pocket)

    With Variax Workbench, you can get inside your Variax Acoustic 700 and fully personalize it with live or studio ambient modes, alternate tunings, mic position, compressor, and trim controls. This combination USB interface and software package for Variax Acoustic allows you to see and hear the physical changes to your custom guitar in real time. Now you can tweak each string's tuning on your favorite model, build the ultimate 12-string acoustic guitar from any of the available models, or put variations of your favorite guitars in every slot on the model knob.

    Acoustic Features:

    - Works with Variax Acoustic 700
    - Compatible with any Windows PCs or Mac OSX computers
    - Allows you to completely customize any or all of the sounds on the Variax Acoustic model knob
    - Create custom or alternate tunings for any guitar you construct
    - Easily create, store, share and back-up thousands of acoustic guitar models using the librarian feature
    - Workbench's detailed graphics allow you to see and hear the guitars you create in real time

    - Interface is powered through USB connection and small enough to throw in your guitar's gig bag (if not your pocket)

    Live & Studio Mode
    If you're playing a room that's heavily tiled and boomy, switching to Live mode will give you dry sound that has the room-like reflections taken off the guitar model. However, if you're recording direct, Studio mode will give you all the air and lush body modeling that you'll need for a warm and realistic acoustic track.

    Mic Position Slider
    This slider gives you the ability to move the microphone model. When you decrease the slider's value it is as if you are moving the microphone closer to the guitar's sound hole. This emphasizes more of the guitar body model and the lower frequencies. When increasing the sliders value, you de-emphasize the guitar body model and hear more of an emphasis on the upper frequencies.

    Comp Setting Slider
    Variax Workbench makes getting great studio-quality compression easy. At 0%, you get a natural uncompressed sound for gentle, dynamic finger picking. As you move the slider towards 100%, the compressor delivers a punchy attack and smooth release for more aggressive strumming with a pick.

    Trim Volume Slider
    By default, the TRIM slider is set at unity gain (0dB). Trim allows you to attenuate or boost your guitar from -18dB up to +6dB.

    All You Can Eat
    One of the main reasons for bringing different guitars is not only the pickup and sound, but the tuning. Workbench allows you to not only make your own guitars, but you can select a custom tuning to go along with it. Now your T-model setting can be in Open G, your Spank model can be tuned a half step down, and your Lester model can go to Drop D.

    You can make as many guitars as you want using Workbench's Librarian. Keep track of your custom guitars, store them on your computer's hard drive, email them to friends, or just make a CD-ROM backup so you can load your guitars into any Variax you use. Workbench allows you to fill each slot on the Variax Model knob and 5-way switch with your custom guitar collection.

    Fits in Your Gig Bag
    Using the special RJ-45 connector, you can go "inside" and create custom guitar models. Using the included custom digital Variax cable and converter box, you can now USB into any Windows or Mac OSX computer and edit the guitar entirely on screen. Now you can see exactly what you're playing.

    With Variax Workbench, you can get inside your Variax Acoustic 700 and fully personalize it with live or studio ambient modes, alternate tunings, mic position, compressor, and trim controls. This combination USB interface and software package for Variax Acoustic allows you to see and hear the physical changes to your custom guitar in real time. Now you can tweak each string's tuning on your favorite model, build the ultimate 12-string acoustic guitar from any of the available models, or put variations of your favorite guitars in every slot on the model knob.
