Q: How do I update the AMPLIFi’s firmware/flash memory?
A: We always recommend that you run the latest flash in your AMPLIFi amplifier. Your AMPLIFi Remote application will inform you whenever a flash update is available, so you'll always know you have the latest version! Follow the instructions HERE to update the flash of your AMPLIFi.

 

Q: What should I do if the AMPLIFi Remote app is unable to sync and connect with my AMPLIFi after applying the latest flash update?
A: If you are unable to sync and connect your AMPLIFi with the AMPLIFi Remote app after applying a recent flash update to your AMPLIFi, make sure to perform the Post Update Instructions HERE.

 

Q: How can I reset the AMPLIFi to its default settings?
A: To perform a factory reset and restore a AMPLIFi 75, 150, or TT to factory settings press and hold Master Volume knob and Tone button as you power up the unit, keep holding them both down until you see the LED's around the Master Volume knob light up. To perform a factory reset and restore the AMPLIFi FX100 to factory settings press and hold the Master Volume knob and the TAP button as you power up the unit, keep holding them both until you see '01' in the LED display.

 

Q: What can I do if I am experiencing Bluetooth connectivity issues between my Bluetooth device and the AMPLIFi?
A: Make sure that you have applied the latest firmware update for your AMPLIFi as well as installed the latest version of the AMPLIFi Remote app. For additional troubleshooting steps about Bluetooth connectivity and usage check out our Bluetooth Connectivity FAQ HERE.

 

Q: What should I do If I am experiencing connection issues with the AMPLIFi Remote app when I switch back and forth between apps on my mobile device?
A: An important thing to note about the AMPLIFi Remote app functionality is that in addition to the Bluetooth connection between your AMPLIFi and your mobile device, there is a secondary 'sync' connection between the amp and the app. Each time you minimize/close the app, the connection between the AMPLIFi Remote app and the AMPLIFi will need to be re-established, even if your device is reporting that the AMPLIFi is connected via 'Bluetooth'. In this case, re-opening the AMPLIFi Remote app, will automatically re-establish the connection within a few seconds.

 

Make sure to look at the main menu of the AMPLIFi Remote app and wait for it to indicate that your amp is 'connected' before moving forward using the app. If it does not automatically re-connect, close the AMPLIFi Remote app by double-tapping your iOS device's home key and then sliding the AMPLIFi Remote app window up and off the screen to fully close the app. Android devices usually have a button that lists all open programs where you can slide the app left or right to close it. Then relaunch the AMPLIFi Remote app and it should re-sync itself with the amp.

 

Q: Can the AMPLIFi Remote App stream songs that are stored in the cloud and not on my mobile device?
A: The AMPLIFi Remote App can only play back songs that are stored on your mobile device. On iOS deives, within the AMPLIFi Remote App settings, you can enable 'Hide Songs Not On Device' so that you only see songs that are stored on your iOS device when playing music from your Library. The Android app does not have this setting, but still only plays back songs stored on the device.

 

Q: What do I do when tones differ drastically in volume?
A: Tones can vary drastically in overall volume based on numerous factors within the settings of the tone such as Amp model Drive amount, Amp model Bass/mid/Treble settings, EQ/compression settings, FX settings, and most importantly the Amp Model volume. When you go into the Editor for the tone, touch the Amp/Cab icon. The slider at the the bottom of the screen labeled 'Volume' is the Amp Model Volume. This Amp Model 'Volume' sets the overall volume for tone itself. Therefore if you are having trouble balancing the level of tones, use the Amp Model volume to help match the volume of your other existing tones. A general rule of thumb is that 'clean' tones will need to have a higher Amp Model volume, while tones with lots of distortion are louder and can use a lower Amp Model volume. We also recommend that you keep the Master volume of the AMPLIFi at a lower setting when auditioning or matching tones to prevent any loud bursts of sound or feedback that can occur if the tone you load has a very loud Amp Model volume, excessive gain, or a lot of treble/bass.

 

Q: How can I turn on and off the individual effects from my AMPLIFi presets using effects foot switches on the FBV Shortboard MKII?
A: The 1.01 AMPLIFi firmware along with the AMPLIFi Remote app 1.20 update adds the ability to have your Stomp, Mod, Filter, and Delay effects assigned to the Stomp, Mod, and Delay foot switches of the FBV Shortboard MKII. When you connect a FBV Shortboard MKII to your AMPLIFi amp and open the preset editor window of the AMPLIFi Remote app, you will now notice that your ‘Stomp’, ‘Mod’, ‘Filter’, or ‘Delay’ effects icons will have a ‘S’, ‘M’, or ‘D’ badge on them to distinguish which footswitch they are assigned to on the FBV Shortboard MKII. In addition, the reverb effect will always be assigned to the ‘Reverb’ foot switch and the compressor effect will always been assigned to the ‘Function 1’ footswitch.

Q: Why are the effects in my AMPLIFi presets not always assigned to the correctly labeled footswitch on the FBV Shortboard MKII. For example, my Stomp effect is assigned to the ‘Mod’ switch, my Mod effect is assigned to ‘Delay’ switch, or my Delay effect is assigned to ‘Mod’ switch, etc.
A: On most factory presets the badges will be assigned to the respective effect category, meaning that Stomp effects will be assigned to the ‘Stomp’ footswitch, the Mod effects will be assigned to the ‘Mod’ footswitch, and Delay effects will be assigned to the ‘Delay’ footswitch. However, in some circumstances – such as an altered factory preset or preset you might use from our ToneMatch Cloud – this may not be the case. If a Delay effect is loaded into the slot that corresponds to the Mod footswitch, then stepping on the Mod footswitch will toggle that delay on and off. Remember – you can create a patch that contains a Delay (or a Mod, Stomp, or Filter/Synth/Pitch effect) in all 3 assignable slots if you wish, so it is not possible to keep the labels matched with the effect type at all times.

 

Therefore, if you wanted to create a patch with a specific effect assigned to a particular footswitch on your FBV Shortboard MKII, you would start by selecting the effect slot that contains the letter badge of the footswitch you would like to use in the AMPLIFi Remote app preset editor window. After tapping on the effects icon, tap the effects category type icon in the upper left hand side and pick the category of effect you desire. The resulting screen will allow you to select the effect you desire to use in that slot, and it will now be assigned to that FBV Shortboard MKII footswitch.

 

Q: Can I assign a effect parameter to the 'FX' knob on-board the AMPLIFi 75 / 150 / FX100?
A: Yes, you can assign one parameter from any of the effects within your tone to the 'FX' knob on-board the AMPLIFi to allow you easy access to favorite effects parameter. To do so tap and hold your finger inside the colored part of the parameter slider for the desired effect parameter you would like to assign to the 'FX' knob. You will see a confirmation dialog appear asking if you want assign 'Tweak' to the specified effects parameter, choose 'OK' to save your assignment. After you've made the assignment, a 'FX' knob icon will appear within the assigned effects slider control. You can now use the on-board 'FX' knob on the AMPLIFi to adjust the specified effects parameter.

 

Q: Can I use a Line 6 EX-1 expression pedal along with my FBV Shortboard MKII and AMPLIFi?
A: Unfortunately the EX-1 is not compatible with the AMPLIFi series even though the FBV Shortboard MKII features a 'external expression pedal' input to allow you to connect an EX-1 as a secondary expression pedal. The EX-1 does not function as a secondary expression pedal for AMPLIfi in particular, you can only use the on-board expression pedal on the FBV Shortboard MKII or FBV Express MKII with the AMPLIFi series.

 

Q: Can I pair my AMPLIFi with more than one Bluetooth compatible device at a time?
A: No, the AMPLIFi series does not support multiple Bluetooth connections at one time. If your AMPLIFi is currently paired with a Bluetooth device and you would like to pair it with another device, you can press and hold the Bluetooth button on the AMPLIFi to un-pair with the Bluetooth device that you are currently paired with and put it back into 'Discoverable' mode so that your second Bluetooth device can detect it and pair with it.

 

Q: Can I use the AMPLIFi Remote app to load or edit tone files from my other existing Line 6 products, such as POD HD500? Will the app work with Sonic Port, Sonic Port VX, or Mobile IN?
A: The AMPLIFi Remote app is only compatible with tone files created from the AMPLIFi family of products. It also only functions with AMPLIFi products.

 

Q: What Bluetooth version is used in AMPLIFi? What Bluetooth codecs are supported?
A: We use a Bluetooth solution that supports Bluetooth 2.1. We only support the SBC codec at this time.

 

Q: Where can I register my AMPLIFi?
A: After logging into or creating a Line 6 user account HERE, you can go HERE and enter in your serial number that is found on the back panel of the amp, it begins with '(21)TMA', simply fill in the remaining digits.

 

Q: Where can I provide my feedback or make a suggestion about AMPLIFi?
A: We encourage you to visit our IdeaScale page HERE and let us know about your ideas and suggestions.

 

Q: Is there a forum where I can discuss AMPLIFi with other AMPLIFi users?
