  1. I don't think the tone matching works if you do it this way. So you have to "manually" select the tones you want then use them to play along. It means the really cool feature of auto tone matching is essentially disabled.
  2. Thanks! - I would have looked there too, didn't mean to make you look it up for me. - Am I right in thinking that the pilot's guide is the only manual? It said in there go online for the full manual but I couldn't find anything but the pilot's guide.
  3. I'll try and figure out how to save tones using the foot switches but for now, I will just open the tone and save it to the new location. - Thanks again for the input.
  4. LOL! (I don't know the RealZap but I am sure it's just an "in joke") I am going to just load what I want where I want it and not worry about overwriting the original tones. Can you move the tones around from bank to bank? I am not sure how to do that, I thought you could just drag and drop them but it didn't appear to work.
  5. From what I have experienced even though your device is paired with the FX100 it isn't connected until you go into your bluetooth settings on your Android device and touch the listed paired device, it will then go through the connection routine. Make sure the blue tooth button on the FX100 is illuminated or the FX100 won't accept the connection.
  6. Do you have a ceiling fan running in the room? Sometimes that will give a pulsing sound. I agree with Cebreez, it sounds like you have some electrical interference. Take a look and see if you can identify what has changed from the time you didn't have the interference to now. - Hope that helps.
  7. One thing I have noticed with my Nexus 7 is when I turn the FX100 on and press the BT button I have to go into my BT settings on the Nexus and touch the paired device to re-initiate the connection (not re-pairing). It seems that it doesn't auto connect, I don't know if that's a setting somewhere that you can change. It's not a big deal but if you are not aware of it, it looks like it's all turned on but nothing is actually connected.
  8. Thanks, I will go through them and save the ones I like/need. Is it safe to assume that preset tones would be available in the cloud if I was to look for them in the future? Just wanted to add: You are doing a great job answering posts Triryche and I for one, really appreciate you taking the time to answer. Obviously you already know all this stuff and its excellent that you are willing to share with others.
  9. I am very new to the FX100 and still trying to figure out how best to set it up so that I can use it to play my set list. I see how to load the tones into the banks so that each tone is on foot switch A, B, C or D. I also see I have 25 banks to play with and can move up and down the banks by pressing either A & B or C & D. I have a few questions about making it work for me. I noticed that bank 25 had USER1 through USER4 so I have replaced those with "my tones" however, the other 24 banks are prepopulated with what look like good tones but not what I need in any one bank. Can I a) move the tones around in the banks (and if so how?) and b) If I replace a prepopulated tone with one of "my tones" how do I get it back again? Are all the tones in the first 24 banks already saved in "my tones"? Forgive my ignorance but I have searched but can't find any decent documentation and no one seems to have asked this question in these forums.
  10. I am using with my Nexus 7 (first generation) and my Samsung Galaxy S5 both work well.
  11. I think you can also drag and drop those wild cards to change their position if I am not mistaken. - So if you want to two stomps next to each other, that's how you would achieve it.
  12. This seems to be a problem with how Google Play Music works. When you download the songs to your device, they are indeed there and playable offline however, they are obscured so you cannot see them and other apps can't see them. This is why they don't show up in your music library in the AMPLIFI Remote app. - You can go to Google Play music through a browser (on the Nexus be sure to request the desktop site). This will allow you to download the song as an mp3 in the music folder however, Google will let you know that you may only download the songs this way twice for each song. I am considering making a playlist of all my songs in the Google Play Music app and downloading the whole playlist. Then I will scrap Google Play Music and use another music app that stores my music locally in an easily visible form.
  13. I tried this out, I first went into the Google music app and marked an album for download, the app went ahead and downloaded it. I opened the AMPLIFI remote app and it still couldn't see the music. I downloaded another music app to see if it could find the music and sure enough it couldn't either. So I downloaded a file manager and looked around for the music that the Google music app had downloaded, I couldn't find it. It is allegedly saved in /sdcard/Android/data/com.google.android.music/cache/music I looked in there but couldn't see any files. It appears that the Google app actually hides the music as a part of it's protection of the music rights (that's a whole different discussion). However, I found that if I logged into the Google music website and found the song I wanted and clicked download, the website will warn you that you can only download the song twice (really? I bought this song) but it will download the .mp3 to your music folder on the Nexus7 and then you can see it using the AMPLIFI remote app. - Not the easiest process to get what you want but it does mean that the Android app works as designed it's just the Google music app that is causing the difficulty. - I hope this helps for those that like me want to use the app on Android.
  14. I tried manually going into Rocksmith and editing a tone there, that allowed me to see all of the devices and their settings. I did the same thing in AMPLIFI remote editing a tone and changing everything to as close as I could get to simulate the Rocksmith tone. The outcome was pretty close (better than I could have done alone) I created a tone for "Call Me" by Blondie and published it to the line6 cloud if you want to take a look at it. It's only the distortion tone from the song not the cleaner one. I think it was a good start and certainly not a waste of time. It achieved a couple of things. It helped me to better understand the AMPLIFI remote app and how the tones are created there. It helped me to better understand how the tones are constructed and it got me a tone in the AMPLIFI FX100 that I can play the song with. - Not too shabby for a first attempt.
  15. I will test this out on my Nexus, the problem is, and the main reason the songs in the Google app, I don't have that much storage on the tablet. I will have to see if I can add a bigger card to it. I appreciate the feedback.
  16. When you open them in another play, the AMPLIFI remote won't find matching tones though will it? - I want to load up a song and have it find tones that match that song, right now it only finds alarms and not actual songs on my Nexus, not sure where to download them to so the AMPLIFI remote will find them, there doesn't seem to be a setting for telling it where your music might be stored?
  17. Thanks for the input, that's sad. I guess a different approach is needed. I could just catalog the songs in Rocksmith then hunt for tones for those songs in AMPLIFI however, I suspect that many of them don't exist as of now so I will need to do some plagiarizing of the Rocksmith tone set up. Looking at their tone designer they have a very similar approach to the AMPLIFI one so I am not sure how different the outcome will be, I will experiment and update this post. I do have a subsequent question though. I have a Nexus 7 and my song library appears to ignore my Google music (which is where most of my songs are) how do you get songs into the song library on Android?
  18. I am a long time Rocksmith2014 user. I love that it has "Authentic Tones" as part of the software. It has a tone designer not unlike that of the FX100. In Rocksmith I play with the "Authentic Tone" or a "Custom Tone" with the backing of the original song. However, sometimes Rocksmith will mask your playing with an accompanying guitar so it can be difficult to distinguish what you are really playing from how "good" Rocksmith is making you sound. - Enter the FX100.... I was just given the FX100 as a gift and love that you can download tones for it but, I think it would be extremely cool to be able to convert my Rocksmith tones to AMPLIFI FX100 tones. I am wondering if anyone has done this or even attempted to do this? I know that the Rocksmith tones are available in an XML format I am wondering if the AMPLIFI tones are available in a similar XML format and can be compared with the Rocksmith ones. This would make conversion so much easier. If this is not possible it's going to be a laborious job to copy the tones from one system to the other. - Any input, help or just general interest in seeing this work is greatly appreciated.
  19. That was one of my first thoughts, it would be much easier when working on creating tones or just setting up songs to do that from a PC/Mac than using the tablet/phone. Especially as the back button on my tablet puts the app in the background, when I bring it to the front again it reloads the tone that was in there losing all my edits (I have done this by accident several times already). I am not sure how hard it would be to port from an App on the phone to a desktop app but that would certainly be a great addition. - I guess it depends how the USB interfaces with the unit or if you need to connect the PC via bluetooth.
  20. I set my Amplifi FX100 up last night, I was given it as a gift purchased from Amazon. The as shipped firmware version was 1.0 which meant I was unable to access it from my Android phone. I found some instructions online and downloaded the updater. Unfortunately the instructions failed to mention that the drivers are now separate from the updater. I figured that out and downloaded the drivers too. I installed everything and connected my FX100 the updater could see the FX100 so I started the update, it did the same thing as the OP my software started to download and in a few seconds it failed. I had set up my FX100 for update by switching it on holding the A and C footswitches. I did this several times to no avail. - I don't own an IOS device any more so I reached out and borrowed one however, that device needed charging. Being the excited kind of guy that I am I decided to try my Macbook, I downloaded the updater (there are no drivers necessary on the Macbook) connected the FX100 to my Macbook using the USB and presto, I was able to upgrade to the latest firmware. I followed the instructions for the factory reset and the recalibration of the expression pedal and boom! - I was able to connect my Android phone and even better, I connected my Nexus7 (which has been waiting to find it's purpose in life) and the connection was not only stable but flawless. Within minutes I was able to download some tones and Purple Haze was rocking out of my AMP. - Now I am excited to see what this thing can do. - I got distracted on the first session just switching things up but so far, after the initial set up it seems to work as advertised.
