Q: What can I do if I am experiencing Bluetooth connectivity issues between my Bluetooth device and the AMPLIFi?
A: For 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 iOS device?
A: An important thing to note about the AMPLIFi Remote app functionality is that in addition to the iOS Bluetooth connection between your AMPLIFi and your iOS 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 iOS 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 home key and then sliding the AMPLIFi Remote app window up and off the screen to fully close the app. 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 iCloud and not on my iOS device?
A: The AMPLIFi Remote App can only play back songs that are stored on your iOS device. 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.

Q: How can I search for a specific tone if I don't have the song or artist in my Library?
A: To search for a specific tone, go to your Library within AMPLIFi Remote and pick any artist, then one of their albums, and then any song. This will begin to play the song and present you with a list of tones that match the song that is playing. You can then swipe down from the top of the tone list to unveil a ‘Search Tone Cloud’ field where you can search for an artist or song name to find tones without having the song or artist in your library.

Q: When I am using the AMPLIFi Remote app, the tone controls on the amp don’t seem to respond and my FBV MK II controller is not able to change my ABCD presets?
A: While using the AMPLIFi Remote app, the AMPLIFi enters ‘EDIT’ mode. The tone and preset controls on the amp along with the ABCD preset foot switches on FBV MKII controllers will be disabled in order to allow you to wirelessly control and edit them from your iOS device.

Q: Can I use the AMPLIFi Remote app to load or edit tone files from my other existing Line 6 products?
A: The AMPLIFi Remote app is only compatible with tone files created from the AMPLIFi 75 or 150 amplifiers.

Q: Can I use the AMPLIFi Remote app with a Line 6 Mobile In or Sonic Port?
A: The AMPLIFi Remote app is only compatible with the AMPLIFi 75, AMPLIFi 150, or AMPLIFi FX100.

A: At the moment, it has no function. It’s been put there for future use.
