  1. Apple buds work fine but my AKG K240S's, Sennheiser HD280's and Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80OHM's all sound distorted. Not sure what the prob is but monitoring without isolated closed backs is deal breaker for me. Going to get an Apogee One this week.
  2. My Apple buds seem to sound OK thru the SonicPort VX headphone port but when using my AKG K-240S or Beyerdynamic DT770 80 OHM phones, the signal is very distorted. Was it ever determined whether this is a SonicPort issue that Line 6 needs to address via a software or hardware fix before I either exchange my Beyer's for a different OHM version or punt and buy an Apogee One? Thanks, --R
  3. Good info...thanks. Curious why it would color the sound more than an M5/9/13?
  4. I posted something similar back in June (link below) re: the Ampli75 & FBV Express MKII foot pedal. The idea seems to make such basic else is one suppose to control a Bender (Whammy) effect other than via a volume/wah pedal?? Idea seems to be dead in the water though.
  5. Just a quick follow-up to this thread. How effective is the Amplifi FX100 is as a "pedalboard" in front of an existing guitar amp? Seems like this would easy, assuming the FX100's amp & cab modeling could be disabled. Some are suggesting the "out to amp" is less than idea when output to an existing combo amp though for some reason (I wonder if they're disabling the amp & cab sim??). If I could an FX100 in front of my tube amp instead of my M5, I'd be all over it. If for no other reason, I'd rather adjust effect settings on my iPad than the minuscule display on the M5. I assume if the FX100 can be used as a pedalboard in front of an amp, existing analog pedals could also be used in the chain. Thanks, --R
  6. Hope this isn't too presumptuous but I think what a lotta folks are trying to determine is just how effective the Amplifi FX100 is as a "pedalboard" in front of their existing guitar amp. Seems like this would be a simple proposition, assuming the FX100's amp & cab modeling can be disabled (which I believe can be done in the clean setting of the amp modeling section??). If I could an FX100 in front of my tube amp instead of my M5, I'd be all over it. If for no other reason, I'd rather adjust effect settings on my iPad than the minuscule display on the M5. And not to completely muddy the water but I currently have the M5 in my effects chain along with some analog OD & Fuzz pedals. Since I primarily use the M5 for reverb and time based effects, could I do the same with same with the FX100 and use it with my existing OD's & Fuzz's?
  7. psarkissian, thanks a lot for your attention to this one...I genuinely appreciate it. I appreciate everyone's feedback. I'm trying to do whatever possible not to have to haul it into a service center as I've not had great success in the past with a previous Variax. Thanks much, --Roy
  8. Guitar tech did the magnet tap and got signal on all the pickups. --Roy
  9. My guitar guy has the JTV-69S so I'm going off memory but if I recall correctly, this is what's going on: POSITION 1: Bridge POSITION 2: Middle POSITION 3: Middle POSITION 4: Middle POSITION 5: Neck
  10. Charlie, yep - that's exactly what's happenin'.
  11. Iknowathingortow, you know a thing or two...thanks much !! --R
  12. For some reason, the magnetic pickups on my Variax JTV-69S are wired for a 3-way Strat config rather than a 5-way config. Am looking for a schematic for the 69S config so my guitar guy can change it to the 5-way config which will allow me to get the out of phase settings. Only finding a schematic for the humbucker version of the JTV-69. Thanks, --R
  13. After a coupla weeks of trying to get the FBV Express MKII to control the Bender (Whammy) effect on my Amplifi 75, Line 6 Support hit me back and confirmed the Bender effect currently isn't controllable by the FBV Express MKII expression pedal. Seems a bit odd...hopefully they'll add that functionality in a future iOS update. --RH << I have just tested this over here and confirmed with my Amplifi expert and currently the Bender is not controllable by the expression pedal. You can, however, assign the Bender to the FX knob on the amp. I'm sorry this functionality is not there, but I can't speak towards when and if it will be available at this time. You can create a feature request for this functionality at Again, sorry about this, but please feel free to voice any additional questions, comments or concerns. >>
  14. In regards to the Bender (Whammy) effect, Line 6 Support hit me back and confirmed the Bender effect currently isn't controllable by the FBV Express MKII expression pedal. --R
  15. Thanks McRiff! Good point...will make sure gate and compressor are turned off. << It would be very helpful if the Remote app displayed real-time changes as you activated or deactivated pedals in your effects chain and also displayed changes in the position of the expression pedal (other iOS modelling apps have this feature). That would make any erratic position changes graphically evident. >> Yep - that would make things muich easier. Can't imagine Line 6 won't add visual effect changes to the iOS app in a future update. By the way, the Bender (Whammy) effect is all but unusable with the FBV Express MKII. Admittedly, it could be me not knowing how to set up the functionality in the app but there's no way to know since there's little if any documentation with the iOS app. Maybe I'll hear back from Line 6 support on that one...submitted a ticket 3 days ago.
  16. Bought the little Amplifi 75 and dig it as a practice amp. Was thinking about replacing my M5 with an AmpliFi FX100 for use in front of my tube amps. Main concern is the ability to bypass amp and cab modeling in the FX100 since I'd want to use the effects only. Can this be done? Thanks, --R

    Popping Sound

    Yep...does the same on my Amplifi 75.
  18. << Is Anyone Actually Happy With This Thing? >>Couldn't be happier. --r
  19. Just bought an FBV Express MKII to use with my Amplifi 75. I'm not getting a very smooth sweep when using the foot pedal with the wah and Bender sounds (i.e. in the case of the wah, I'm getting more of an immediate bump in the wah rather than a smooth transition). Anyone have any thoughts? I've already calibrated the FBV Express MKII. Thanks, --R
  20. Lotsa links provided to this question. Seems like it would've been just as easy to answer the question. After visiting one of the various links provided above, it would appear that only the MKII foot controllers work with the Amplifi series of amps. There ya go... --R PER LINE 6's SPECS: Compatible with Line 6 FBV MkII Foot Controllers
