Hi guys.

 

Just received my Spider iv 120.

 

I have updated the firmware to v2.00

 

When i switch channels using the mkii express FBV there is a noticable cut in sound.  Also when I use the looper, if i record a clean sound on the loop then switch to another channel ready to overdub i get a bit of a dip in the sound.....not as much as when i just switch channels when im playing but surely it shouldnt affect the playback of the loop.

 

So, just as an example, if i have the identical sound preset into channel 1 and channel 2 and switch between them there is a very noticable clip in the sound.

 

Can anyone tell me if this happens to them.  I watched a youtube video of a guy using the looper and it doesnt seem to do it on there.  Im not overly worried about the looper as i will probably only use it for practicing solo's etc but it just seems to point more to there being a problem.

 

 

 

Any advice would be great before i put a support ticket in.

 

Thanks

 

Dan

I have read that some users notice the delay (milliseconds) when switching patches, but I never did.  I guess it would be most noticable when playing a held note and switching.

They say the FBV shortboard MK2 is perfect for playing live, but there is an latency if you switch between the channels. How can I fix this??

It is what it is, unfortunately.   But the delay really is minimal and the only time you would really notice it would be if you were holding a note/chord and switched patches.   I used it in live situation, changing patches when I went from one part of a song to another (verse to chorus, etc), and never noticed the very short delay.

to me is not really minimal.....when you play live you can hear the delay well...it's a sort of :playplayplayplay.........playplayplay...........playplayplayplay....it is very noticeable! imagine a singer in a song between the chorus and the main theme that doesn't sing...to me it will be very noticeable.:) I tried to ask to a technician at line 6..the told me that they known the problem, but at the moment the amp is what is it:(
