  1. Fantastic to hear! I'm glad you got it working without much trouble. What a steal for $100! Feel free to upvote if you like, lots of people have this problem and this seems to be the only easy fix.
  2. Hi WeWereDinosaurs, What a shame! I am sorry you have had trouble. All I can suggest is to try a factory reset by booting the unit while holding down the volume and tone buttons until all the volume lights light up and try again. If that doesn't work, try updating using Line 6 Updater on a PC if you can. Hopefully one of these works. Also, what device are you using with the Bluetooth? If I remember correctly, some devices (especially iPhones and iPads I think) don't work very well with the bluetooth on the Amplifi series amps and end up dropping out a lot when they aren't within a metre or less of each other. I know that my Amplifi 150 was very unreliable with Bluetooth (even with my Samsung devices and when they were in contact with each other) in certain spaces with lots of wireless signals flying around, such as in the Performing Arts Centre, so I had to make sure all my patches were sorted either prior to the audio and light techs booting up their systems, or take the amp away if anything needed changing. I just wish that I could plug in my computer and do any changes on a dedicated Amplifi Edit program, similar to POD HD500x edit and Helix Edit, but Line 6 says they have no plan to release such an app for the Amplifi series. If there are a lot of wireless signals travelling where you're trying to update, you may be getting some interference from one of them causing the connection to drop. Hopefully some of this is helpful! Riley.
  3. Great to hear that my random attempt at fixing it has worked for so many people! Feel free to upvote the original solution to help more unfortunate people solve the problem without forking out fortunes. Happy playing! Riley.
  4. I love my Amplifi 150!
  5. Hi again, I have stopped having any problems at all with my Amplifi 150. It works a dream and is perfect for both practice and gigging. One thing I have noticed is that if I am in a venue with lots of data transfer wirelessly, (for lights, stage control, communications, lapel mics, etc.) the Amplifi doesn't work well with the app. depending on the unique Bluetooth frequency of your particular Amplifi and the signals around it, it may be a signal frequency (i.e. a particular wifi network) that may interfere and cause issues. Another thing I noticed is the terrible range on the bluetooth control. It really is quite abysmal at times and causes problems. Now, however, I refrain from using the app unless I am making tones, and do everything via my FBV Shortboard MKii where possible. I have come to the conclusion that the Amplifi and app combination is really designed for practicing, and if you want to gig with the amp, it is nearly essential to have the bluetooth switched off and a control pedal to switch tones if required. I love my Amplifi and it does exactly what I want it to when I follow these "rules".
  6. No worries, best of luck with the tone creation!
  7. That's fantastic! I am glad you have fixed the problem. Feel free to give me a +1 if you feel like it. Enjoy recording! Riley.
  8. No worries, best of luck with your setup!
  9. Hi vincentlewis, I had a Amplifi 150 do something very similar, but it happened at a gig, about 10 minutes before our set. When mine failed, the amp hissed for half a second and the right tweeter "tapped" 5 or 6 times before the amp powered off again. I got mine taken to a Line 6 service centre (this was pre-yamaha days) and they diagnosed a failed power supply. In the repair they replaced the power supply and the mother board (I think) for a cost of ~$120AUD (~$80 USD) because it was about 2 months out of warranty *sigh*. I haven't had any problems since, maybe 3 years. I narrowed the cause of the fault down to the power at the venue, because at the same time my amp failed, one of the FOH power amps on the same power blew a fuse, most likely as a result of a power surge. I now run my amp on my own surge protected power board that has a $100 000 warranty against any device plugged into it failing because of a surge. They will replace any device up to $100k I hope you find the problem and (hopefully) it isn't something that will cost much to fix. All the best! Riley.
  10. Hi rkurbis, I have the 150 as well and unfortunately there isn't a way to switch banks without using either the app or an FBV control pedal. It is a bit of a shame. I have a FBV Shortboard MKII to use with my amp when performing and practicing, however I have used the app before too when I haven't had the pedal. I have found the app to be less reliable, especially in a venue with lots of wireless data transfer like the performing arts centre. On another note, I have read some articles relating to people custom-building pedals for the spider and Amplifi to change banks or toggle effects. They experimented with which ethernet wires receive what voltages when each button is pressed and custom-build a circuit that does what they want. If you are tech savvy and want a project, I am sure that someone has released the logic diagrams for the Shortboard pedals. Otherwise, it might be better to buy a Shortboard pedal. I hope this is at least somewhat helpful!
  11. Hi Russvind, Originally when I read this I was going to say it might be a latency issue because I have had a similar problem when recording my POD HD500x through ProTools before. However, after listening to the audio clip (great playing by the way), it sounds to me like an interference issue. Have you got a mobile device connected to the Amplifi via Bluetooth while recording? In theory it shouldn't be a problem if there is, but it could be what is causing the interference. I have had trouble using my Relay G10 while performing on stage as I get a similar interference from Wifi signals in the building. It usually takes 2 or 3 tries for it to find a frequency that isn't being used to transmit on. I did some research and apparently Wifi and Bluetooth can interfere with each-other too so if you have Bluetooth connected to the amp, a wifi network may be able to interfere. This might trick the amp into thinking there are incoming audio signals. I'm interested to hear what ends up being the problem turns out to be so I will be following this thread. I hope at least some of this is helpful! Riley.
  12. Hi Carson, Like Triryche said, you won't be able to control the AMPLIFi from the FX100. I would recommend the FBV Shortboard MkII or FBV 3. They are designed as foot controllers for the AMPLIFis and Spiders. I habe an AMPLIFi 150 and the FBV Shortboard MKII and they work great together. Alternatively, you could also get a different effects processor and use it with the AMPLIFi like Triryche said, but then all the effects on the AMPLIFi would be redundant and you still wouldn't be able to control them. I also have a POD HD500X which I use in conjunction with the AMPLIFi, using effects from both. But I still use my Shortboard to control the AMPLIFi. Overall, I would look into getting a FBV pedal because they will do what you want them to do. I hope this helps!
  13. Hey Rich, I always keep my Amplifi 150 on the newest firmware because they often fix bugs like that. I haven't had my amp drop connection with my phone in a very long time, but I suppose that could just mean I am lucky. I have found that the range of the bluetooth is very poor though. As for cloud tones, I mostly create my own tones these days, however when I do take tones from the cloud I can usually find something I can work with. I'm not sure if anybody is making new tones and posting them, but most of the songs I want to play have a tone available in the cloud. Otherwise I just make one. More recently I have been using my Amplifi as a hybrid FRFR system for my POD HD500X. I can use the Pod like it was designed and use its inbuilt amps with effects on either side and the amp with just eq and reverb, or I can use all 8 effects slots and an amp simulation from the Amplifi. It makes my rig more versatile. I was in the pit band for Mamma Mia in January this year and this is what I did for my guitar park. Direct out from my Pod to the FOH and headphones out to the Amplifi. I had 3 main patches; my strat (using guitar in), my Maton (using Aux in), and a 12 (string using the mic in). I changed the inputs for the patches so it automatically disabled the other channels when I was using one. I now use the same sort of thing for practice. This is what I have done to make my Amplifi more stable and alive, but I am not saying that you should go and spend money on a multi effects unit to use with the Amplifi. I hope this is somewhat helpful, and sorry for that huge tangent. Stay safe and happy playing! Riley.
  14. Hi, I don't know if you can get audio from the amp to the PC via USB without using a DAW on direct monitor. I would recommend doing that, using headphones or getting a small FRFR system, like the Line 6 Powercab series but smaller. Or you could return the TT and get a 30. Sorry that isn't too helpful. Unfortunately the AMPLIFi series doesn't have a PC-based tone editing software. I wish I could use my PC too but unfortunately not. I hope this helps at least a bit.
  15. Hi Harrison, The tone you found online is made for a Helix, not an AMPLIFi. With Helix and POD pedals and racks you can load tones directly from your computer via USB but unfortunately you can't do the same with AMPLIFi. I suggest watching the Performance and Dialing in videos in the comments of the tone you found (https://line6.com/customtone/tone/4677150/) and making your own. You may not be able to make it sound the same but you should be able to get pretty close. Hopefully this helps! Riley.
