I'm having problems programming my Spider IV 120 using Spider IV edit. First off, I have the latest version of Spider Edit as of Apr 30, 2013, and the latest firmware for my 120.

So, I'm play with the last user preset. I get it set just the way I want it, using the AC30 (red) setting, a slight amount of crunch using the drive, all effects except a compressor off. Sounds awesome. I "Send Selected" to the amp. Then I disconnect the USB cable. Immediate, the preset becomes quieter and I lose the slight crunch, and besides that, I now cannot get any crunch even running the "Drive" gain all the way up.

I plug the USB cable back in, and immediately the sound I wanted comes right back, even though the amp display and Spider IV Edit are both showing that I'm using the same patch.

I'm very confused on how this should work.

It's been a while since I used Spider Edit (and I didnt' use it the way you are doing it), but when I did, I had to insert (drag and drop) the new preset into a particular user preset location.
