    Not a leading instrument, but its place in a mix

    For nearly three years that I have. What I had tried was the concept of "25 guitars in one." I even swore in good faith to my beloved minister of finance with the purchase, there would be no other behind (lie without the knowledge of my own free will).

    In an attempt to achieve nirvana for digital scratching, I even bought a Pod XT Live OCCAZ almost new. After three years, is the record:

    The emulation of guitar is stirring in the middle of a mix. In fact, Line6 has succeeded in generating the evocation of guitars emulated like a phenomenon of self suggestion. You catch yourself saying "yeah, it sounds like a really well ..." but it is not one. on the other hand, played......

    For nearly three years that I have. What I had tried was the concept of "25 guitars in one." I even swore in good faith to my beloved minister of finance with the purchase, there would be no other behind (lie without the knowledge of my own free will).

    In an attempt to achieve nirvana for digital scratching, I even bought a Pod XT Live OCCAZ almost new. After three years, is the record:

    The emulation of guitar is stirring in the middle of a mix. In fact, Line6 has succeeded in generating the evocation of guitars emulated like a phenomenon of self suggestion. You catch yourself saying "yeah, it sounds like a really well ..." but it is not one. on the other hand, played alone, apart from the folk and the emulation of the sitar, it's not a carbon copy of Start, Tele and others LP. The character "squabbling" Rickenbaker of microphones, for example, is not rendered properly.

    Much less is the cold side of the digital programming: for example, the emulation of Start is calculated for not sustain, and it shows: the notes die artificially, and all in the same way. On emulations Explorer (or Firebird, I can not remember what Line6 has assigned as resemblance), for example, she died the same way, but just with a longer holding time. In this regard, the analog of a single coil or humbucker one is irreplaceable, sorry to tell Line6.

    Another drawback to the use of force emulated their sound qualities, certainly, but above all their faults fixed (see the issue of sustain), the Variax makes you want to own the original models ... and there are 25!

    In short, today I change my tune. Contrary to what I read here and there, the Variax 600 has a good violin, it is physically very enjoyable to play long hours, and I canned, but I do more than the intended use of scratch a little unconventional: Start, Tele and LP are not at all the presets that I use, I have the originals or good copies.

    The sound of the Variax, in particular, are a pleasure to listen to, and the comparison between the size of one against five Variax Acoustic pleads really in favor of digital. The 12-string Rick is also nice, the sitar is funny.

    Emulations of ES and Rockabilly are also very successful. It already makes a bundle of perfectly usable justifies the reputation of the instrument.

    The price / quality ratio is unbeatable, in my opinion, and I had more chance to nab the new home Thotho with a 20% reduction because it was a "B stock" purchased and returned within a month by the previous owner. The pair formed by this guitar with the Pod XT is an almost perfect success, with few defects closely related to the numerical technique used.

    Knowing what I know of this model today, I still do it again this choice.

    The fineness of rglage is excellent in height, width, depth (can not be far l. ..) you can really make his personal rglage.
    The box full of electronics at once seems quite hollow, and sounds really good and trs trs high vacuum for a solidbody and the sustain is not that of a dense wood with key scratches bne, but there is the snap of the button Rabl.

    The handle is hell! is a real highway, comparable in quality to many beautiful guitars trs Chres more ... It is really good on this instrument. And not to find a pleasant sound, it must be allergic guitar!

    For the sound quality, I think really differs in the view of the Champs Badger. I use the Pod XT Live (with digital cable so that even when 40 rating, no connection with the clumsy power supply included). I tried on my monitorings and my Tannoy 600 RCF 310A (DCID brand is in vogue!). Sounds Tele, Strats, Les Paul, ES 335 and Gretch trs are bluffing in clean, crunch on, in saturated ... Which is quite thunderous, is that even the sustain is different depending on the MODELS (short for Start and Tele, longer for paul). So I do not agree with the criticism regarding Previous sustain: it is quite honorable, but I think it is the will of ingnieurs have shortened the sustain of certain sounds (when playing low volume and hear the natural sound and amplified the contrast is strange to beginners). However, a more intensive use APRS, I find even when they sustain SETTING THE stratum and relatively short tele in the light (another ct I do not know what is expected to behave a stratum of 59 because I have my own boys ... the house). I wondered also if there is a difference with the Sustain 700: Line 6 rpondu me that these two were strictly the same MODELS sustain and even electronic (so why So pay double with a 700? for design ?)...

    In terms of acoustic sounds is well trs mdiator solo, was a bit like playing the famous Sylvain Luc Godin uses. In support agreements and a fingerpicking not worth a real acoustic dj cause of touch. The 12 strings are pouvantables. Rsonateur sounds are not too bad (except the banjo), but I am specialist in Figure, the important thing with these sounds is that it must address the pr amplification (using the preamp "acoustic Variax" the Pod, except that the output gain is much lower than other amps simmuls, so you have to add the dB output of the compressor).

    Finally, all fawn even if some crappy sounds, how important: there are enough to s'clater adj!

    I recently and indeed may be that my opinion will evolve over time.
    I also read reviews on the personality of the machine. A priori, sr Variax all have the same sound, only the Modl ings have guitars that have so much personality (Tele and Start for example, each string has its "grain" clean, especially for the E and B) I think that sounds a lot more spcial that most guitars on the market (U.S. strats included). Obviously, I find the couple Variax / POD: I do not know how a ring with the Boss Badger (are there any amp simulations intgres in, because it is lment pricipale sound, right?)
    In short, 500 to our neighbors, I think it is difficult to do without.
    It's just a shame they did not do a vibrato playable by the followers of Satriani.
    But me, my thing is plutt Knopfler ... then 10/10

    Asian manufacturing, value for money requires no complaints on the finish. Mine is white style "Mary Kay" vintage look (white then pulls on the beige) ...
    For technical specifications, a look at this website will tell you as much as I can do. The philosophy of the 600 is clearly stratabound: mapple typed round fender, narrow but relatively flat, the three buttons take up the config stratocaster (volume near the ropes so) we love always, if you take the 700!
    Big plus for me indispensable: a vibrato type fender. When one knows how to use (and pay) it works very well!

    Big plus for me indispensable: a vibrato type fender. When one knows how to use (and pay) it works very well!
    I used it for the first time on stage yesterday for three hours: no worries of detuning, in any case nothing more annoying than my other instrument equipped with vibrato. Mechanical impeccable.
    I forgot: I changed the strings of origin (9 / 42) for the 10/46, a bit beefier, which is probably required to improve the tuning. I put 9 / 10 since I chose this model specifically for these physical characteristics.

    After three hours on stage, I can confirm that the weight is quite reasonable, in any case less cumbersome than my G & L S500 (a super-strat, but only one type of sound ...)
    The handle is forgotten, especially if you're like me used to the touch mapple Fender. It is even more comfortable than the average factory setting flawless (I had the opportunity to choose among several models in the store, the standard setting was more important than the choice of color. Mine is the hair.)
    The body shape is still very different from the stratum: horns narrower main part of the larger body. Beware: it will not fit in a flight case necessarily carved a stratovolcano. I abandoned the gig bag for a stronger body. People who turn me understand ...

    The sounds (not the sound) is the main argument of this instrument; Initially skeptical (20 years of his Fender in his ear anyway) I came into the store with my G & L and a strato U.S. buddy, to compare the history modulations strato 59. (It is not me). It was important for me to find the feeling to go to the strato purchase. Sounds more to me would therefore avoid changing guitar on stage for acoustic ballads or plans Dobro open tuning ...
    The test was conclusive. Let's be clear: I will not sell my strato, but in case of change with the guitar, I take the Line6. There is a spectrum somewhat limited at the margin (bass deeper on the real stratosphere, and dynamic a little chick on the Variax, but the "color" is there, including the sounds 2 and 4 "out of phase")
    The acoustic sounds were the big surprise in rehearsal: live on the table (and especially not in a guitar amp!) We believe it. He had only seen the head of the other zicos when I played on modeling Martin D28! They were looking where I stashed the guitar .... Ditto for the sounds of the National Triplate: intro to Romeo and Juliet as a disk, all without disconnecting and reconnecting the galleys at the guitars. Total comfort, and one side "wizard" that makes her little effect. But I insist: acoustic sounds always on the mixer and the sound with a bit of reverb, XLR output only (it's in the manual)
    Other sounds are very characteristic and allow me to get out a few of my habits. Gibson sounds are very convincing, particularly the P90 ("special") in saturation have a smooth texture and singing very user friendly. Try it and see.
    Still limited to small sets with open agreement: the digital detuning, convenient, suffers from a delay effect very marked. So use with care.

    I've had two months. I use it on stage for the directory Dire Straits: the intro guitar metal (triplate National), sound accompaniment (Where do you think you're going), his solo singing Les paul (Brothers in arms) and of course the riffs strato (sultans of swing): everything sounds so credible and above all without the fuss! With the POD 2.0 on the floor and pedal Floor board, I became a fan of Line6 for convenience (travel light) of the concept. We agree, nothing can replace the original guitars with amps that go with it but frankly, your back will thank you. Apart from a few snobs who shunned the side of the High Tech Digital, the large audience yesterday was surprised to learn that I played without amplifiers or microphones on the guitar.
    A reasonable purchase, fun and a great value for me (I keep the best for last: € 551 new! But there is more at this price, the price catalog is € 907 .. . But it's worth.))

    A five position switch and a slecteur Crant to allow accder diffrent modlisations, while two pots allow where appropriate, the level of rgler virtual microphones, or their position in relation the instrument (for modlisation acoustic guitar).

    Ct violin, one can obviously not say that it is high art, but Line 6 has not ashamed nor for the price which is about the Variax 600 and saw that the electronic embeds. In fact, if the guitar does not offer the comfort of a much CHRE Start U.S., it is playable and is done fairly well the tuning ...

    It has become the only INTERESTED because ACCS Variax gives a package of ready-made sounds worthy of intrt. Start, Tele, Les Paul, 335, and even acoustic banjo or sitar, there's plenty to do.

    Trs sincrement, unable to say that modlisations sound like the real scratch (a real Standard Tele is more enjoyable to play his modlisation), it must be admitted that Eng Line 6 have good boss and that, in general, are modlisations trsrussies: we understand well recognized by the guitars which they rfrent, with my humble opinion On success that much more Fender VG Stratocaster and a price so infrieur.

    The Telecaster, Stratocaster, Les Paul and Hollow body is REALLY usable and if only one glue derrire a good amp simulator, the Variax is transformed into a Swiss army knife for 6 string model in silence. The acoustic modlisations of their usable by any fact, even if they sound electro-acoustic and acoustic plutt, and it is a pleasure to be able to catch 2 am embter without its neighbors ... The banjo runs well too, even the guitar rsonateur. Less convincing, the twelve strings give the impression of being the six strings with a simulated chorus, but overall, it's even great when done ...

    If you are a big fan of guitar and you possdez dj a stratum, a tl and a les paul, chances are you prfrerez the original copy, or question its playability Still, the Variax combines a bunch of sound quality in one instrument and that in fact, if not a real box of scne at least a practical tool for models super speed the Lumire. Not making head of the sound, turn a knob, is recorded, and the sound is to go.

    Russianness really beautiful to me. And probably what we invent more INTERESTED guitar since the 50's for a ridiculous price.

    I do not know if the electronics is so fragile that say "pro-analog", I made two years it holds up. I remain skeptical. Arrter must say it is heavy: I do not agree! Have you tried a gibson sg?? A gretsh?? It is heavy '^ ^!

    Usage is generally irreproachable in a finger movement going from a guitar modlisation another. Combine the Pod XT Live is a real pleasure to ease.

    As everyone said, great. Tons and tons of sounds. Srieusement really you who read this review, which rvez to express, Getting to know the sounds you prfrez, to broaden your creativity or just to duplicate perfection of the classic blues and the great "Shine On Your Crazy Diamond" from Pink Floyd, anything is possible with this guitar, a price that is affordable. Down with the a priori, we do not care that this is not a "real" fender, it does its best to get sound clear and rich.

    Only BMOL: I must admit that even when numrique ... Rhâââ, sometimes it's a bit poor and low-frquences medium rather low, so on some sounds I find it sharp. But only on certain sounds!

    Kudos for the twelve string sound FANTASTIC.

    Buy the.

    You will not regret if you really know the sound PERFECTLY you want. Otherwise with its panel of its immense use necessarly be rewarding and professionalizing.
