    Easy access to back row buttons

    This is a brilliant find! I loved the idea with the barfoot buttons, but they were a bit of a rip off - have ordered a set of the white!

    No computer based editor???

    Ooooooo someone's touchy! (And still wrong).

    Firehawk FX is abandoned

    I haven't actually, as they're not 'true copies' of the songs sound but rather variations adapted to suit how we play certain songs and EQ'd to suit my amp and guitar as well (eg my tone for AC/DC played on my Tele through a Fender amp would probably sound atrocious on an SG through a Marshall!) - Though 'crazy organ sound' from the tonecloud is the organ noise I use for Doors, Town Called Malice etc, it's pretty cool!

    I think you have a confused idea of what an 'interface' is - the FHFX does exactly what it's supposed to do as regards being an interface: it shows up in DAWs (and my iMac sound settings) as an input/output - being pissy to the L6 guy doesn't hide the fact that you bought something on the basis of information and hopes you made up. There are plenty of flaws and limitations with the FHFX and I think I'll be changing mine to a Helix or Kemper when I can afford to, but it was never falsely advertised.

    For me in a covers band, having to go from AC/DC to The Police, to Paul Simon, to Chuck Berry, to Coldplay, to Boston, to the organ noise in Town Called Malice, and on and on, the FHFX is perfectly versatile and works a treat - I love mine. The ONLY thing I would change is adding the ability to run amp-level out of the 1/4" to my amp (ie minus cab sims), along with XLR out to FOH at line-level (with cab sims), as the sound direct out of the unit is superb.

    Easy access to back row buttons!

    That's a brilliant product - hmmmm, wonder what shipping to the UK would be....
  7. True, and the lack of wifi or 4G at all in the area could've caused higher searching and scanning traffic than would be normal - never thought of that!
  8. Interesting read - we've just recently had the first dropout on our V55 and I can't understand why. As far as I can tell it was the only 2.4ghz source in the area (it was a wedding in a converted stable/barn sorta thing, miles from anywhere, with no wifi, and clear line of sight between mic and receiver about 15ft away), but still it dropped in and out for two songs maybe. Slightly concerning!

    XDV-55 replacement grill?

    Arrived this morning, very well boxed! Thanks again for the lead :)
  10. Hi, I'm trying to source a replacement grill for our 55 - does the one for the 75 (part no 98-033-0068) fit? Even this doesn't seem to be available in the U.K. (Or Europe), and postage from the US is insane ($60!) Many thanks if anyone knows...!

    Comparison of POD500X to FireHawk?

    I've dropped mine off a stage, had it fall out of its case smack onto its face, and generally stomped all over it, and the biggest complaint is a slightly squeeky volume pedal (which you can't hear with any kind of volume). Oh, and the display isn't bright enough in direct sunlight, but in Ireland this generally isn't a recurring issue ;D

    XDV-55 replacement grill?

    Correct part found and ordered with Sontec, who had it in stock - at a decent price. Should be here in 5-7 days! Cheers!

    I've asked them, thanks for the lead!

    Expression Pedal Squeak

    Ha! Mine does this too :D It's never been as issue playing live, but I can hear it rehearsal etc.

    XD-V75 rechargeable batteries

    I've been using Duracell 2500mAh 'Durablock' rechargeables (the green ones, if you amazon search "Duracell 2500mAh Pre Charged Rechargeable AA Batteries" you'll get them) in our XD-V55 for a while now and they're great - still get about 6 hours or so on a full charge, rather than about 7+ we used to get on 'normal' ones.

    Direct Out Firehawk FX

    The Firehawk has a line-level output option (little button on the back), so will work at the correct level without the DI - I prefer the 'amp level' sound (this setting removes the cabinet simulation effect) running into my amp, but the line-level into a good PA or monitor (NOT an amp) sounds quite good also :)

    Firehawk "Cloud"

    Sorry I meant the original poster, not your post - I agree with your ideas there!

    Firehawk "Cloud"

    Five minutes of googling before you bought it would have told you it doesn't do that though... It's an entirely different thing really - I specifically DONT want to be tethered to a computer for tweaking, I always hated that aspect of multifx, so the FH's mobile, visual approach is perfect for me - I can use my iPad, my phone, whatever, and get my own stuff back from the cloud if I ever need to. For what you may lose in sheer depth of settings you more than make up for in ease and speed.

    vital question on firehawk

    Youre only using 5 tones there, so with a bit of organisation you could easily negate your problem: 1a - clean with chorus 1b - clean no chorus 1a 1b 1a 1c - crunch 1d - solo 1a 1d - solo 1c - 2a - big outro solo bit So you're only changing the bank once? (And with November Rain there's a good break at the start of that outro to change banks...)

    Custom Magnetic Labels for Line 6 Firehawk

    Every time you change a patch lol?

    Custom Magnetic Labels for Line 6 Firehawk

    Not a huge amount of use tbh, when some patches will have 2 drives, some 3 mods, some 2 delays etc....

    FIREHAWK FX as foot controller for FIREHAWK 1500?

    Really isn't the same thing at all - aesthetically it's a PA speaker, and tonally its positioned quite differently to the 6-speaker 1500w FH1500... A great monitor it may be, but a great amp? Never.

    FIREHAWK FX as foot controller for FIREHAWK 1500?

    Yeah, this would be cool, I love the 1500 as a concept, but I already have the FHFX, so how about an equivalent amp/cabinet without the firehawk circuitry built in, for those who want the fhfx to do the work? (I think the fbv3 is lacking for missing the big red button, I use it a lot to change volumes during a set, depending on whether or not I have any lead bits in a song)

    FIREHAWK 1500

    Just shy of 30kg? Christ.

    Acoustic-electric guitar works with Firehawk?

    Yes - I use my Takemine with mine and it works very well - Through the PA/FOH that is, on LINE mode, not so nice through the amp, so the ability to route a patch to either the XLR or 1/4" outputs on a ptach by patch basis would be a very handy feature if you were switching between guitars in a set!
