I have the Spider valve 112MKii combo and the Express pedal.

I have had a hell of a time figuring how to set up this stuff.


anyhow, the express pedal works fine,(stores only 4 sounds/wah and volume) but when I hook it up to my computer, it goes blank.(the pedal)


I have all of the drivers installed, and collaborated the pedal, I just want to get MKii EDIT to work, but the computer does not recognize the amp because the fbv express turns off when I plug in the USB cable from the pedal to the usb port on the computer.


can I bypass this and use MKii EDIT directly somehow?


any ideas??

The only way to use the Express Pedal and MKII edit together is to connect your Amp via Midi to your Computer. You can use a USB to Midi Adapter for Example Midimate.

I agree with Harty. The Express Pedal simply becomes a MIDI controller for use with apps like Line 6 FBV Control when used with just the USB cable.
