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.

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.

- 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)Live & Studio ModeIf 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 SliderThis 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 SliderVariax 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 SliderBy 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 EatOne 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 BagUsing 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.

New Products
Brand-new products are shipped from the vendor's factory to our warehouses, then from the warehouse to you – there's no detour through a retail store where the boxes are opened, and the products put on display and sold as leftovers. When you shop online, make sure you're comparing new, factory-fresh gear from authorized US dealers like zZounds.

This inventory includes all parts, components, manuals (hard copy or downloadable) and the full factory warranty*.
