    Spider V Edit Does Not Work

    I load it, it works for for a few minuets. Then it doesn't respond. End up having to close it and re open. I've uninstalled it and re installed it. Same problem. Works for a few minutes, then stops responding. Its completely unusable. Is there a fix? Anybody else having this problem?

    Upgrade Spider IV to Spider V

    Yea, I got it in today and upgraded it to version 2.0. The "classic" variation really REALLY is a HUGE improvement on this amp for live gigging. I love this lil f*cker. I've already customized tones for ZZ Top's "La Grange" and Van Halen's "Eruption". Working on Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" now. I also got the wireless and the FBV3 Advanced Footswitch to go widit. SUPER HUGE BRILLIANT IDEA to have the wireless receiver built into the amp and be able to plug the transmitter right into the Amp to charge it. Whoever thunk of that at Line 6, give them a raise! My only complaints is you should have kept the "boost" switch from the older amps. I know I know there's workarounds but that was a step in the wrong direction (no pun intended). Also no send and return, so no using your favorite pedals in the signal chain. I also own the Boss Katana 100 and Peavey Vyper Pro. Both them are good amps too, but they have nowhere near the sims the Line 6 has. I guess my favorite though is the Boss GT 100 that I also own. It's VERY, VERY, VERY versatile for the gigging musician, but its also a floor unit and I'm NOT a fan of floor based effect processors, mainly because I have to run 25 feet of speaker cable TWICE (L & R) from the floor unit to the 350 Watt Rocktron Stereo Power Amp that I use to power the 2x12 Stereo Cabs. Its just a pain setting it up and tearing it down, which is why I'm a fan of amps that all the effects built into the amp. Simple to set up, simple to tear down, simple to use. I can take the Line 6 Spider V 120, walk in, and be ready to play in 5 minutes. What's more important, I can tear down and be gone in 5 minutes. You never know when the egg cartons are going to catch on fire.

    Solo

    If you have the foot controller, you can use it to turn up the volume during lead by using it as a volume pedal. Just set your rhythm volume at half depress and full volume at full depress. Of course, you won't be able to engage the Wah if you use it as a volume pedal.

    Upgrade Spider IV to Spider V

    If I remember right the conversation promoting the new Spider V was like "yeah and we haven't forgotten the current Spider IV owners, and they can upgrade to the Spider V via firmware update." I did search YouTube but I can't remember where I saw it and its been some time ago. Anyway, I went ahead and bought a Spider V, so its a mute point now (no pun intended). I'll be running via the two XLR outs into a 3500 Watt RMS powered mixer into two 2x12 bi range cabs with a horn. Can't wait to make it loud. Think I'll jam with Ted Nugent on Wango Tango or Ricky Medlocke on Train Train. Then I'll slip into something more comfortable with Stevie Ray Vaughan's Riviera Paradise followed up with a taste of Rock n Roll by Led Zeppelin and Jumpin' Jack Flash by the Stones I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled , yeah yeah I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread Yeah, yeah, yeah I was crowned with a spike right through my head But its all right now In fact its a gas

    Upgrade Spider IV to Spider V

    I saw a video on YouTube wherein a rep from Line 6 (can't remember his name) said the Spider IV can be upgraded to Spider V. This was when the Spider V first came out. How do I go about that?
