POD HD Pro With FBV or other foot controller
by peternaglitsch on 2012-03-18 10:37:07

After a few years with XT live and X3 live I am thinking of buying the HD Pro, but still need a good foot controller. The shortboard is an option, but I noticed that the HD pro manual says that the FBV would also work. On the other hand the produkt page of the FBV doesn't state that the FBV supports the HD Pro!

Two pedals would be great, so I was trying to find the FBV manual to see what else I could benefit from choosing the FBV instead. But I cannot find it in the manals page.

So I need help with a few things:

1. Verifying that the FBV will work with the HD Pro

2. If t doesn't work, or if someone have a good suggestion for an alternative foot controller, please let me know

3. Can anyone point me to a place were I can find the FBV manual

Thanks

The FBV (longboard) has been discontinued.

Still marked as "current product" in the manual dowload page and still possible to buy new, at least were I live, so that didn't really answer my question...

I think they are no longer making them, so when they're out of stock ...

The info page says 'not compatible with HD, POD Pro ...'

Sorry, but no, it says:

(NOTE: FBV is NOT compatible with Ax212™, Flextone™ I, II or HD, POD® Pro, Bass POD®, Bass POD® Pro and Spider™.)

Not a word about the POD HD Pro in either the "not supported" or "Supported list":

The FBV (aka longboard) is still there as an active produk if you browse the pages. Go to user manuals:

http://line6.com/support/manuals/?families=11&submit=Submit&1st=1st

Select "current products" and the FBV are there in the list. Although if you klick the FBV there is no manual to download. And even if Line 6 stops manufacturing these the manuals should be downloadable IMHO. And they are not. Can we get some input from Line 6 here pls?

hello peter

this is just a lapsus in the website, there has never been a manual for this product, as it is included in the compatible gear's manuals

the user above is giving you the right info: the FBV or FBX is since years ago discontinued

see the different options offered by each FBV model in page B•5 of POD HD Pro Advanced Guide (Rev B) - English : http://line6.com/support/manuals/podhdpro

We recommend the FBV Shortboard MKII for use with the POD HD Pro system. The FBV was originally created 10 years or so ago to be used with the Vetta Series amplifiers. The FBV is compatible with a POD HD unit, but not all of the switch labels will correspond to what is available in a POD HD Pro. They will, however correspond to a Vetta Amp.

We do not manufacture the FBV anymore in 2012. If you come across one new, it must be "new old stock" that a dealer had in their inventory/warehouse all these years.

I just bought a Mk1 FBV longboard to use with a Spider II 212.  The amp manual has instructions for the shortboard but not the longboard. 

The compatibility list says these two items should work together http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2413

I can only find revision A of the POD HD Pro Advanced Guide on the manuals download page http://line6.com/support/manuals/podhdpro.




The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
