Line6 Workbench

Variax CustomiSation SoftwareNow you can build your own dream guitar at home with a PC or Mac! Variax Workbench offers you a fully equipped virtual guitar workshop. This allows you to easily create, store, and share the most advanced models with other users.

Variax Workbench offers a wide range of body shapes, pickups, position options, sound and volume controls, etc. Now you can finally build the guitar you dream of so long. Imagine you have a drawer full of cool pickups, dozens of different potentiometers in a box, and hung on the walls are all the major classic guitar bodies.

With this combination of USB interface and software, you can not only hear what you design, but also see - everything in real-time. Any idea how a single coil sounds like a half-octave lower? Hardly, because there was no such a thing until now.

The main reason for working with several guitars is the possibility to use different moods - in addition to other pickups and sound. With Workbench, you can not only create guitars, but also tailor them as you wish. Thus, the "T" model can use the open "G" tuning, while the "Spank" model is tuned a semitone lower and the "Lester" model starts with "Drop-D" tuning.

Thanks to the library function, you can design as many different guitar models as you want (see below). The models you can sort, save on the hard drive of your computer, mail them to friends or burn them to CD-ROM, so you can load them into other Variax guitars at any time! With Workbench, you can use any of the Variax Model selection switches AND the 5-way selector switch to create your own creations.

Perfect for my Variax700
27.11.2016
I personally find this to be a God-Send for tweaks and alternate tunings.

Although the Variax 700 is long in the tooth and doesn't offer a million slots for your own set-ups, the Workbench is essential and I use it almost daily all these years later.

It is plastic, you do have to use Line6 Monkey (which can be quirky on OS X) but overall I am a very happy user.

Pros - it offers quite a lot of tweaking for my main guitar, the 700. The ability to set my own tuning per (user) slot and on one model I like to have one string louder (in my case the G string) - Workbench allows me to easily do this.

Cons - not everyone will instantly fall in love with the software you need to use BEFORE you can get into using WorkBench - Line6 Monkey. I dont hate it but it wouldn't be my 1st choice either. Its functional and gets me into the WorkBench software without too much fuss.

The unit is lightweight and plastic so I would recommend doing your set-ups at home or in the studio before hitting the road or stage. But then again this hardware is not meant to be used out live - just save your 5 slots (or tweak the inbuilt preset models) and your good to go.

Finally - if anything its a little costly for how much you will use it. Once you find your ideal set-up you can tweak away but more often than not its just set and forget on your Variax. No real need to go back to WorkBench once you have a set-up your happy with. Of course you can always try new things!

Were I to misplace mine I wouldn't hesitate to get another.
Heartily recommended if you have a Variax 700 and want to try something different from the stock set-ups.

Werkbank - für alles, was man sich von Gitarren wünschen kann
Dominik D., 24.08.2010
Les Paul mit Strat-Singlecoils in Baritone-Stimmung? Jazze mit Tele-SCs und DADGAD? Alles kein Problem. Wer eine Variax sein eigen nennt, kann auf die Workbench nicht verzichten.

Aus dem ohnehin schon idealen Werkzeug für Cover-Musiker macht dieses Programm das ultimative Tool. Denn neben den absurderen Eigenkreationen ermöglicht die Software auch die Sortierung der freien Bänke. Wer nun also in einem Song die Les Paul und die in Open G gestimmte Tele braucht - kein Problem, lässt sich direkt hintereinander ablegen, sodass Praxis-tauglich direkt darauf zugegriffen werden kann.

Ebenso praktisch, wie in meinem Fall, lässt sich das jeweilige Variax-Modell auch noch mit dem POD XT / X3 Live und anderen PODs und Amps von Line6 abstimmen. D.h. es ist möglich per Tritt zwischen Cleanen FX-Space-Sounds in offenen Stimmungen zu massiv runtergestimmten Metal-Gitarren zu wechseln und von da aus für ein Interlude zu einem Riff-Rock-Sound. Ohne auch nur eine Millisekunde die Hände von den Saiten zu nehmen.

Aber auch ohne die Kombination zwischen POD/Vetta und Variax bleibt die Workbench ein unglaublich praktisches Tool für die Variax, um das letzte Quentchen Vari aus der Axt zu holen.
