  1. First, save your cash and buy a spider V 240, if you can find it. After the firmware is applied it is identical to the mk II Second. Everything else can be found in the manual. You have a total of 128 slots to place tones. Or 32 banks of 4 slots with the last four being blank. I personally delete all the factory tones so that I have all 128 to play with. Any of the factory tones I want I just import in from back up. The FBV makes the spider v so you can interface hands free. It really adds nothing but functionality, but that functionality is convenient as all get out. If you a quick of foot you can switch between your tones in any bank pretty easily. Pretty much anything you are looking for is in the manual section. There is a link to all the factory tones and effects on the forums, which I'll try and link here.
  2. If you are using android or IOS you can only download tones within the app. If you are using a PC you can download from the custom tone site.
  3. be sure you install drivers with the amp unplugged from your computer.
  4. Just FYI, Microsoft ended mainstream support for Win 7 in 2015 and will cease extended support in January of 2020. Finding new software that is compatible with it, is going to continue to dwindle. Just saying.
  5. It's a false detection. Your AntiVirus is confusing it for this....
  6. You need to update the updater. Click on the link for the updater on that page. Also
  7. Bumping it because it wasn't in v2.00
  8. Where are you looking? I managed to use the updater to update my amp, and just downloaded the new remote off of the download site.

    Worst amp ever?

    The factory tones were a bit bleh... so I erased them all. Now that they have made the tonecloud available on customtone I can just hook up to my pc and swap tones with greater ease than the mobile app.
  10. Like was said before, you can back up the entire default banks on your computer, or save what individual factory tones you want to use. I have a have a set of blank banks available for download here on this forum, if you want to start from scratch... No lie, they did the same thing on the Spider IV, only the spider IV had like 100 or something tones that weren't in the banks.
  11. I found this out the hard way as well. The light on the G10T lights up when the amp is off, but when I turned the amp back on, the battery was drained. I've also noticed that if I leave it unplugged from the amp for a bit, it takes a bit for it to re pair with the amp and it needs to charge. No biggie. I just turn on my amp a few minutes before I want to play and plug the G10T in.
  12. no.. turned off the tap light and the clicking still continues
  13. We have a Spider V user group on Facebook and one of our members told us about this mono clicking issue he's getting. Basically happens when you output to a cabinet mono, (one cable plugged in) and have amp modeling off, and set the mix to 70% on certain effects and you get this rhythmic clicking sound. Being that I also had an 240 HC, I decided to try and see if mine did it as well, and it does. He has sent his amp back to the retailer multiple times, had all the circuitry replaced and what not. The final summation that it was a firmware issue that Line 6 had to fix. Only problem is it is on the following effects: all of the reverbs except for the 3 spring reverbs and the Brite Room. The Stereo Delay and Ping Pong Delay The Sine Chorus, Line 6 Flanger, Rotary Drum+Horn, Auto Pan, Stereo Square Chorus, Stereo Expo Chorus, Hi-Talk, Sweeper This only happens if you have amp modeling off and plugged in mono to the cabinet... Link to Video showing issue. Can anyone else reproduce this issue?
  14. Cool man here you go! What I would do is individually save to disk the tones you made, and, if any, the factory tones you want to use.. I'd also back up the entire bank to disk, just in case something silly happens. then I would hit restore to load up the blank bank, by clicking "restore".... then I would import my tones into the slots you want them. Loading up the blank bank virtually erases all the tones, and gives you 128 slots to park your own tones in. Then it's a matter of just selecting them. BTW if you have a FBV shortboard Mark II or an FBV 3, you can switch between your tones way easier.
