I'm trying to download a few tones for my spider IV amp 75w. I have my pedal hooked up to the computer, and i have the line 6 monkey program installed. what am I missing? Do i need to authorize my pedal?

Yes, you do need to register your pedal with Line 6, along with the amp.

There have been many threads on these forums about Monkey not recognizing the controller.  Standard solutions include trying a different USB port.  What OS are you using?  Windows (version) or Mac? 

I had problems doing the v2.0 update with Vista, but was able to do it on another computer running XP.  Spider Edit (that's what you use for loading tones from customtone.com) works fine for me with Vista.

The first thing you will need to do is download and install the latest version of Line 6 Monkey for your operating system that you can use to download the latest Line 6 software:

Windows Line 6 Monkey 1.43:

MAC Line 6 Monkey 1.43:

The next thing you need to do is to update your amps firmware in order for you to be able to connect it to your computer and use it with Spider IV Edit, we have a video tutorial for this process at the link below:

After updating the firmware, you will be able to use your amp with the Spider IV Edit software. You can edit, save, and load presets using Spider IV Edit.
