When switching between clean/twang/blues and insane/metal amps....the volume levels on the insane and metal are huge loud, while the previous mentioned amp settings aren't nearly as loud.  HELP!.  I have the Spider Jam 2.0, bought new from Guitar Center, and the FBV Shortboard MKII, bought used from Guitar Center a year later.

There is no overall volume leveling/balancing. You need to manually edit the Volume setting(s) on each preset to balance them to your liking. Turn the softer presets up, and turn the louder presets down.

copy that, Uber....I'm down with that, thanks for the response, but I'm having trouble with that manual editing of volume procedure, can you give a walk-thru, even a general tip?  I don't see the specific instructions in any manual, I don't see a detailed step-by-step.  I do read and follow procedures well, but haven't found the text yet. Thank you again, kind-rocking-sir.

I'm not familiar with the Spider Jam so can't tell you exactly what options you have re: volume knobs, but the general procedure is:

- adjust the Channel, or power amp, volume - not the Drive/Gain or pre-amp volume. The former increases only volume; the latter also affects tonality.

- start with the clean sounding tones/presets. Increase their volume to the desired level first, then move on to the dirtier/grittier tones and adjust their levels to balance with the clean tones. Finally, balance your hi-gain and lead tones with the others.
