    Update 2.0

    So unfortunate & disappointing ... seriously.
  2. Here's an online review of the AMPLIFi 150 dated October 16 at PremierGuitar.com. Link > http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/21442-line-6-amplifi-150-review They like it.. a lot.
  3. Seems to me that swapping out the speaker on an AMPLIFi is quite a different beast than changing one in a standard tubed guitar amp. I mean it's an easy thing to swap the speaker but quite another to know which speaker would be a suitable upgrade... There are those four other speakers in the AMPLIFi that need to be taken into consideration -- that the new speaker has to be matched to / balanced with.
  4. Sure hope we get USB recording, and access to more than just four tones when using the amp without an iPad.
  5. Can we hear from some who have updated their devices to iOS8 to confirm that the app works bug free? I want to update my iPad's OS but am afraid that the app won't t work with the amp. It sounds like Line6 is saying it is compatible but I'd like to get confirmation from actual amp owners too before moving forward on it.
  6. I'm pretty sure I've used two mod effects with the Amplifi. I thought the FX100 was essentially identical to the Amplifi except without the amplifier and speakers. No? Are FX100 and Amplifi tones interchangeable?

    USB port

    What's taking so long to activate Amplifi's USB port? The $100 "Fender Mustang I" amp has a very functional USB port -- for recording and accessing its Fender Fuse editing software -- so we know it's doable. I hope Line 6 gets us Mustang-like usb soon. It just makes marketing sense to provide it as soon as possible -- a usb recording interface would be a huge plus to prospective buyers.
  8. I voted for it -- hopefully many others will too.
  9. Four banks (16-tones) would be a huge improvement over the "just four" that are now available without connecting an iOS device. Hopefully this is a planned feature, and if not hopefully it will become one after they view these posts.
  10. That's a really good way too. It's super easy to simply count one, two, three, four, or five lights -- it gets harder to count as you go up BUT, no biggie, simply put the most used / most important / your gigging tones in the first four or five banks and you're good to go. I like ice9mike's solution far better than the one I came up with ... and, I have to think it wouldn't be too difficult to code into the firmware. Maybe "someone" (what say ye ice9mike?) could suggest it on IdeaScale?
  11. Triryche Posted yesterday 10:30AM "But I personally don't see a clean way to implements this ... how would the AMPLIFi indicate the current bank?" Here's a scheme Line 6 coders could easily implement to provide access to some additional banks of tones using just the amp's single tone button (read: without an iOS device connected) > Double-click the tone button to switch to Bank 2's tones, triple-click to switch to Bank 3's tones, etc. Maybe do this for at least the first three or four banks of on-board tones? I have to think something like this is very doable.
  12. That rots... All these additional banks in the amp but only accessible by connecting an iPad or iPhone? Not sure about others but I use my amp 90% of the time as is, without an iOS device connected. Being able to access more sounds than four without iOS would be a huge plus for me. Hopefully this a feature Line 6 adds in the next firm ware update (IMO it really should have been included in this most recent release).
  13. I can't figure it out either. I have to think Line 6 has provided a way - and we just don't know about it - for this to be done. For now, I've been changing presets using the app but most of the time when using the amp I'm not using the app so being able to access more than just 4-presets from the amp is a must have for me. Hopefully, someone knows how to do it and will post it here.
  14. I updated mine yesterday... It took about 30mins beginning to end. I placed my iPad on the amp while updating the amp's firmware which took about 20mins via the iPad and amp's Bluetooth connection. Bluetooth is the gating issue here so be sure you keep your amp and device close together.
  15. So pretty much the firmware does nothing for AMPLIFi owners unless they also own an FBv or Mk2...Is this correct?
