  1. Wow kid. You need to calm down and stop acting so entitled. It's nobody's fault but your own that you can't remember your password. There are no loops to go through. If you can't remember it, write it down somewhere. Read my post again. I never said anything about a shorter password. Most people don't have any problems at all remembering their passwords. And suggesting that you make your password something that you can remember is not an idiotic suggestion. It's actually a common suggestion when it comes to passwords. So drop the attitude. You're the one making it "personal".
  2. Having to log in once every 2-3 months is no big deal. Perhaps you should make your password something that is easier to remember. And the syncing is already automatic. That's why it says "syncing" when you open the app. There's no need to press any additional buttons or go through any other steps. If you don't want to log in while you're somehow "lying in bed going to sleep" while playing guitar at the same time, then skip the login and use the tones stored on your amp.
  3. Thanks! Now if only you could favourite one of your own tones without uploading it to the cloud first. The majority of the user tones are horrible. I guess the devs at Line 6 need to do a little better with quality control and making sure that the app is consistent across all the tabs (since the instructions given on the favourites tab are showing an incorrect icon).
  4. What version of the app are you using, and what OS (iOS or Android)? There is no "guest login" option (at least on iOS). You can click on "skip login" and the app works just like normal, except you have no access to "My Tones", "Favourites", or "Cloud", or the Music player (since it auto-searches the cloud for tones) The "amp" portion of the Amplifi still works as normal. You still have access to all the tones saved on the amp itself. And since the Music panel in the Remote app is simply acting as a skin for the native Music app on iOS, there's no need to use it anyway.
  5. Can you show me a screen shot please, with the latest version of the app? I know how it worked in the old app, but it doesn't work that way in the latest version. Your advice also contradicts what the app itself says (which also doesn't work, btw).
  6. How do you set favourite tones now? That feature appears to be broken in the latest version of the Remote app.
  7. Ah... one of the benefits of Mac I guess. I'm not aware of any consumer class amps that have that capability (I could be wrong of course).
  8. Yeah, there's no way to do that. For that, you should just get yourself a 1/4" to USB guitar interface to use as an input for your DAW and then use the USB on the Amplifi as your output, or buy a good pair of monitor speakers to output the sound directly from your computer.
  9. Yes, you can turn off all of the effects on the Amplifi TT and use only effects from a pedal board. Just use the Remote app to turn any effects off. You can't stream the output from the TT to a bluetooth speaker though. The bluetooth on the TT is an input only. Meaning you can stream music TO the Amplifi TT, but not FROM the TT. In order to send the guitar output from the TT to a speaker system you need to use one of the audio outputs on the back (either one of the Main Outs, or the Optical Out). You can also use the "Amp Out" jack to hook up the Amplifi TT to another guitar amp. Also, just to clarify what usnavychiefret said, you cannot store any tones on the FBV Shortboard. The Shortboard is an interface to interact with the Amplifi TT/75/150 only. All of the tones are stored on the amp itself.
  10. I'm not sure what DAW you're using, but I've used my Amplifi 75 with GarageBand a few times. To mute the amp's speaker output, just turn down the Overall (red) volume. Also, the way I managed to get a clean/dry signal is to create a preset that removes the amp and any effects. Under the "Clean" amps you can select either "no amp" or a tube preamp.
  11. It should appear, as long as the meta data matches (artist, song title, etc). Also, the favourites option doesn't seem to work any longer with v2.5 of the app.
  12. Did you install the driver (Windows only, if you're using Mac it doesn't need a driver) and hook up the amp to your computer via USB? You can update the firmware via an iOS device (iPhone, iPad) as well if you want to do it wirelessly, however it takes a lot longer to do. It's about 3-5 minutes via PC/Mac, and typically takes over an hour via an iOS device.
  13. It's there, it's just not called the "Amplifi Utility" anymore. It's been renamed to "Line 6 Updater".
  14. That's just how it works. It's incredibly slow to search for and load tones, and that slowness also affects the app when it comes to starting, stopping, and pausing tracks as well. It seems to be a combination of both the amp and the app. There used to be an option to save a tone as a favourite, which then would be loaded automatically whenever the song/artist was played so long as the information saved with the tone was set up properly (i.e. the artist name, song name, etc) but that seems to have been removed in the latest version of the app. Probably because it never really worked that well. Though oddly enough, the app still makes reference to adding favourite tones. Hopefully in a future update they'll add an option to turn off any kind of tone searching at all. Most of the user uploaded tones in the cloud are terrible and the "matching" system is a farce. If there are no tones in the cloud with that match the artist of the song you're playing, you get randomly selected tones matches that make no sense. For instance, playing "Put A Flower In Your Pocket" by The Arcs will get you tone matches for Coldplay, Paramore, and the Metal: Rhythm tone.
  15. Did you update the firmware to the latest version? If you just got it, it probably shipped with the original 2.0 firmware.
  16. It must be specific to certain production runs of the amps. I can safely overwrite any presets, including all of bank 1, without any problems. In fact, saving my top 4 tones into bank 1 again was the first thing I did after updating to the latest firmware. I've always had bank 1 set up with my favourite tones since I got the amp. My Amplifi 75 is about 14 months old, though it's also been in for service (in October) and had the main board replaced. Or at least I was told it was replaced.
  17. So maybe the problem isn't your vision. Maybe you're colour blind or you don't have the brightness on your iPhone screen turned up high enough. Both the top tab and bottom tab have red backgrounds, not black. In fact, both the top and bottom have the same red (it's actually closer to maroon). The only major difference in colour between the top and bottom tabs is that the text in the top tab is contained within a red box when selected. The only parts on a black background are the contents of each tab (or the centre portion if you will). And yes, overall there are more than 1 instance where black text is on the screen. But only 1 word at any given time. I guess I could have been clearer about that. The get the old layout you have to go into settings and turn off "Use Tabbed Navigation". That will give you the old layout that was used with the app before the 2.5 update. However, this will also change the layout of the entire app and then you're really going to hate the ergonomics.
  18. Okay... #1 - I was suggesting you need glasses, not that you wear them already. I have 20/20 vision, and I have no problems reading the text in the app, whether on the iPad or the iPhone. In fact, it could be smaller and it would still be readable. #2 - You said "even enlarged, you still cannot read the text". That's just absurd. Not only can it be read at regular size, it's even easier when enlarged. You should also keep in mind that the display on the iPhone (4 and up) was designed to be viewed best at a distance of 10 inches. #3 - You said nothing about being restricted to an iPhone as your only device. And considering that the Amplifi Remote app was designed to mainly be used with the iPad (as evident from all the promotional material), it's not an unwarranted suggestion. The idea that my suggestion to try an iPad was being "cavalier about cost" is laughable as well. Especially considering you can get an iPad for less than the price of the amp. #4 - You said "No design class I ever have attended has suggested that black type on a dark red background in 3 point size is great ergonomics." There is literally 1 word that is in black text. All the other text is either white, or red. Mentioning that fact isn't "unhelpful or misdirection to the specific portions" you were critiquing. Implying that there are portions of the interface that contain black text is misleading. Again, there is 1 word in black text. #5 - We don't agree, since to me those areas have no problems at all. By mentioning them I was pointing out that the text is red on red, with the exception of 1 word. Anyway, there's no point going back and forth. Clearly you're not comfortable with anybody disagreeing with you. Try and enjoy the app for what it is. One of the Line 6 reps mentioned a little while back that they might consider adding new themes to the app in the future. Maybe they'll give you something you like better. But I wouldn't get your hopes up. Browse through the forum and you'll soon find out that Line 6's customer support isn't great and that changes and updates are slow to come. Besides, I'm sure after using the amp for a little longer you'll find, as most of us have, that there are many more concerning problems with the Amplifi amps and the Remote app than the text size and colour. For most of the users here, this amp and the app have been a pretty big headache.
  19. I have no trouble at all reading anything in the app. Been using it for over a year with no problems (with reading) at all. Perhaps you need glasses or contacts. Or maybe an iPad. Pretty much ALL of the text in the app is white, with the exception of the bottom toggles (which are red on red) and the top bar, of which only one is black (the one selected. The other is red on red). Anyway, for what it's worth, you can switch back to the original layout and colour scheme in the app's settings.
  20. This should help you get started: http://line6.com/support/forum-70/announcement-34-amplifi-tutorial-videos/ (You can find that link on the main page of this forum at the top of the page)
  21. I've upgraded to iOS 9.2 and everything works fine.
  22. The user manual hasn't been updated since the initial release. The recording capability was only added with the 2.10.0 firmware update in December of 2014 (the last firmware before the new 2.50 update). If you're using Windows, make sure you download the drivers supplied by Line 6 on the support page. The native drivers that Windows installs doesn't seem to work for a lot of people.
  23. The amp doesn't connect to anything via Wifi. It's a bluetooth connection. And it can already record via the USB port.
  24. You have to do that in the Music app on your iPad, not the Amplifi Remote app. The Amplifi app can't manage your music collection, it can only do playback. If you're unsure about how to make music available offline in the iOS Music app, you can find instructions online by googling it.
