    Solo Musician - Android lyric/chord apps...what you using?

    I've been using Bandhelper for a few months now, nothing but praise for it. And a big plus for me is the support from the creator via his website and a really helpful forum. What's not to like...?
  2. Great advice again, thanks cloth... I found a good deal on an Amplifi TT tonight, so that will arrive next week. Might have to wait a week or two before I get permission to buy the pedal..! Graham
  3. Hi. I'm about to purchase an Amplifi TT and a foot controller. I've done a little research and it seems that I can use either of these with a TT. Will one give me more control over the other or will I be missing out on some features of the TT if I make the wrong choice? I've found a Shortboard Mkll at a good price, but I'll hang on until I get some advice on here. Thanks Graham

    Advice about the Amplifi FX100 and TT

    Thanks for all the advice, now looking for a TT and FBV, but there's not many TT's about.

    Advice about the Amplifi FX100 and TT

    Thanks again cloph. I think that's settled things. I've found a used TT online ( just hoping that he accepts my offer..) and I think either the Shortboard or the FBV 3 will fit the bill Great advice guys.. Graham

    Advice about the Amplifi FX100 and TT

    Thanks cbrillow I've looked at the Firehawk but decided that a TT and FBV 3 (or the Shortboard) is the way I'll go. Once I've created patches with my tablet, do I need to connect to the TT via bluetooth for live use? I get the feeling that I don't want to rely on BT during a gig. Graham

    Advice about the Amplifi FX100 and TT

    Hi Cloph and thanks for the detailed advice. It's helped me tremendously. Having done some more research, I can get the FX100 and the TT for around the same price, 200 euro. But looking closely at the FX100, I see that the presets are only numbers where I believe with the TT + FBV, I can allocate named patches which I much prefer. Am I correct in my thinking..? So I'm leaning more towards the TT + FBV at the moment. However, I need to look more closely at the Firehawk before I make a decision. I'll let you know how it pans out. Graham
  8. Hi I've been lurking around the forums for a while, but now ready to ask for some advice. I play acoustic and electric rhythm guitar in a 5 piece and a 3 piece band. We mainly play rock & roll from the 50's and 60's but occasionally venture into melodic rock and blues. I use a Bose L1 system for my vocals and guitar for the larger gigs and a powered speaker and small mixer for the house parties. I now find that I need some flexibility with my guitar sounds, but don't want to use an amp. So I have been looking at the FX100 and the TT. I only play rhythm and the sounds I want are mainly clean (with a few variations to include reverb, delays and occasionally some OD) and the research I've done so far, it seems that the TT would fit the bill. I don't need any high gain stuff. Then I started to read up on the FX100 and things became a bit confused. I've watched the obligatory YouTube videos and downloaded the app but it hasn't really helped much. You might have guessed by now that I'm not well versed in the art of setting up electronic gear such as this. No problem with a traditional amp with knobs...! So my questions are... 1. What are the differences between the two units? I understand one is a table top, the other a floor pedal. 2. If there are differences, which one is best for my use? 3. Will either or both be suitable for acoustic and electric guitar? 4. I've read comments on other media sites that suggest Line 6 are not so committed to these units. Is that a fair comment? All advice welcome.. Thanks Graham
