Line 6 Central app now available


We are pleased to announce the release of Line 6 Central, our new device management platform. The modern user interface in Line 6 Central brings a simple and clear experience for keeping all your compatible Line 6 gear updated with the latest firmware. The refined workflow in Line 6 Central walks you through the steps required to update your device. This new platform is built on the latest architectures, bringing improved security and seamless operating system integration.


Using Line 6 Central is fairly similar to using our previous updater apps Line 6 Updater and Line 6 Monkey. We encourage Line 6 Updater and Line 6 Monkey users to try Line 6 Central for keeping their compatible devices up to date. Otherwise, please continue using the latest version of the applicable software to update your hardware.


Please know that Line 6 Central does not replace any of our editor/librarian apps. We still strongly suggest using these apps to back up your presets and settings before updating your firmware. If Line 6 Central gains backup capabilities at any point, we will provide information regarding when and how to transition between apps.
