    Firehawk Backup

    As far as I can tell so far, there is no way to backup the entire contents of the Firehawk? I have not connected it yet to PC but I think that is just for recording purposes. Has anyone checked this out? Also I did not realize when I bought my Firehawk, that you can write or "copy" over the factory settings, and once you do that, that particular patch is gone for good unless you do a full factory reset which will likely wipe out any settings of your own in the unit itself. Then, you are left to download one by one all the patches you have saved to "My Tones" Am I correct on all the above??? I would like to know the individual factory patches are available for download just in case I want to reload it. Any help is appreciated!! Also, this is my review of the Firehawk at this point: First, it is a bright brassy sounding unit. It's great for a lot of distortion tones but to me does not appear to be designed for a straight guitar sound like you would use for a straight rhythm or Country Music style leads. Also to me, even a lot of the distortion patches are brassy sounding. That is my conclusion so far after a couple hours of playing with the settings. Consider also this is my opinion in the way that I am connecting the unit. I am only running the mono out directly into my old solid state Peavey Special 130 amp. Running thru a tube amp or sound system may make a big difference but I still think this unit is very bright and digital sounding. I have been trying to find a "warm" tube amp straight sound. The way I was finally successful in getting very close was to start with an unedited "User" patch that you will find at 30.A. Then I added and edited Eq. and compression, delay and reverb, possibly noise gate if you want. Doing this was faster and easier than trying to edit an existing factory patch. I was considering returning the unit until I figured this out because it is just too bright sounding to me. I am still using my old old Digitech RP 10 and I think it sounds better than the new wonderful Firehawk. Just my 5 cents worth, but I still have a mountain of editing to do with the Firehawk. In all fairness, the RP10 was pretty digital sounding also until I eventually tweeked in the right amount of compression and e.q. for my taste, but over the years I have been very satisfied with it. I do think however that the Firehawk is actually worse in that respect. Hard to believe in this advanced stage of electronic evolution we live in. I'm not convinced we have totally overcome the need for tubes! Thanks all!!! Jay

    Where can I find more tones?

    Joe did you find anything? I just got my new Firehawk and have not had much time to spend with it. Maybe you can answer a couple of questions? I am using my LG Android phone to run the software. I did not see how to change from patch to patch in the App other than "My Tones" list in Alphabetical Order. I was hoping to see an Up/Down Arrow on it same as the Firehawk has and/or to be able to scroll in the same order as they appear in the firehawk itself. Wouldn't that make more sense??? Thanks Jay

    Pod Hd500 Patch Conversion

    I just got a Line 6 Firehawk. Don't like most of the patches. Can HD 500 patches be transferred to Firehawk?

    full amp and effects lists

    Questions: I ordered one and waiting for it to arrive. I downloaded the app to my android phone. Looks pretty cool but some functions are greyed out, most likely because device is not attached and bluetooth is off. There is supposed to be a way I believe to pull up amp and effects list in the app itself but I have not figured out how to do that. Does anyone know? Is the app any different between an ipad or an Android device? Do the amp models work when you just run into the Firehawk with guitar and out to an amp, or is this function desigened to run thru a PA? If you do a tone search from "the cloud" and select one, it was downloaded, but where did it go or how do you find it? These will be easier to figure out once I get the Firehawk, I'm just playing around with what I can do for now in anticipation, lol. I also downloaded the "Piolot's Guide" It's got the basic info in it but imo, it's pretty skinny on details. It does not have the typical hardware/cable diagrams and such that most device manuals have. Not really needed for a seasoned user but useful for a beginner I'm sure. Just wondering if there is a full blown manual in the works?
