Hi

The FBV MkI boards will not work as they have no USB connectivity. 

You need either an FBV MkII Shortboard or the less expensive and less capable FBV MkII Express to achive connectivity with a computer.

Sorry.  Spider IV doesn't have MIDI, nor do the FBV pedal boards.  Spider Valve MkII does have MIDI

Hi

Several Line 6 devices use an ethernet cable to connect them together BUT it is NOT an ethernet connection or protocol that Line 6 uses.  Line 6 uses a proprietary communications protocol.  You cannot directly connect any Line 6 device to a computer using the connections that are made using RJ-45 sockets/ plugs and ethernet cables.  NEVER plug a Line 6 device into your computer's network ports.  You will almost certainly damage one or both devices
