Assigning Spider Jam's Amp Models to FBV Express Mk2
by oldrascal on 2012-12-29 07:09:21

Do I feel lke a klutz.............perhaps the Christmas excesses have frazzled too many neurons but I am completely stuck, bamboozled and confused .  

I have enjoyed owning and using a Line 6 Jam amp for a while now and am pretty familiar with its controls.  But I have just treated myself to an FBV Express Mk2 with the simple aim of assigning some of the amp models on the Spider Jam to each of the 4 pedals on the FBV.

I have downloaded the Line 6 FBV Control programme to my computer, linked it to the FBV with a USB cable and studied the options.  My first problem is that the software says that no Line 6 device is connected even though the software is clearly active.   But that aside, I still can't understand how to assign say - Clean, Twang, Blues and Crunch choices to the ABCD pedals.  The tones and volume levels already assigned are just not right for me.  Everything else (tuner/volume/wah) work just fine.

I'm having the same trouble!!!!!!!! I bought a pre-owned mk2 shortboard and am trying to learn how to clear whats there and then customise it to what I want. Downloaded the applicable software from Line 6 but now stuck.

Do I plug in the mk2 to the SpiderJam and and then connect the laptop to the mk2 and go through a process of all three comunicating with each other ??

Can anyone talk us through the process please or point us in the right direction.

the fbv edit, is only for use with a PC... make sure that you don't have the amp and the usb connected at the same time...

in the context of the amp the FBV is only a dumb controller... learn the amp... and the FBV will control it...

meaning... learn to put the settings you want to recall on your A/B/C/D channels in the amp... and the dumb FBV will recall them...

you don't need to involve a computer at all... specifically because we are talking about a spider jam... which is a spider III family amp... and has no computer editing capabilities.

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