  1. For 25 or 6 to 4, I'm pretty sure Kath used a Cry Baby Wah and a Bogen Challenger PA head plugged into a Fender Dual Showman. You could probably sub out the dual showman with a twin model and use a cab or IR with 15" speakers. For the Bogen PA, maybe try the studio tube pre, or another preamp, directly into the twin model.
  2. 128 presets, all presets are user writeable. When using Spider Remote you can save presets to the amp, your computer, the cloud, or both.
  3. The Relay G10t is not compatible with Spider V 30. G10t is only compatible with Spider V 60 and above. If you need a smaller amp that is compatible with G10t you can also check out the Yamaha THR ii wireless. It is also compatible with the G10t.
  4. Not every speaker model has a specific matching amp. You are correct that jensons are closely related with Fender, Greenbacks with Marshall, etc. But something like DINO (cannabis rex) is a custom speaker that I've seen end up in a lot of different amps, for a lot of different styles of music. Typically when running Helix with PowerCab, you'll want to disable the cab modeling in Helix. This lets you use powercab's physical cabinet and digitally switch speaker models. I think matching up amp models with expected speaker model is a good starting point. I've found some cool tones by mixing and matching unexpected combinations as well.
  5. FBV 3 is not compatible with Spiderv V 20. FBV3 is compatible with Spider V 30 and above models. Here is a list of complete compatibility:
  6. Here's a list of all the amp model equivalents in Spider V
  7. There are no HD Amps/Effects in Spider V. The complete model list is available below:
  8. It sounds like you may have found the model list for a different product. You are correct Spider V only has the 4 amp categories. The link below is a full list of the amps/effects in Spider V. Your Spider V can become a Spider V MkII with a simple firmware update. MkII adds new redesigned factory presets and the option of Classic or FRFR speaker mode in each preset. Classic speaker mode disables the tweeter and Spider V functions like a traditional guitar amp. If you do decide to update to the latest firmware be sure to back up any presets you want to save with the Spider Remote app.
  9. For a flat/neutral sound turn off all effects on Spider V and select "No Amp" option for the amp.
  10. Hi Robert, I just sent you an email for setting up a POD Go Skype Lesson. Cheers, Doc

    Tone Spider V60

    If you have the Spider Remote app you can search for user created tones and audition and tweak them on your amp. There are also Line 6 tone templates, which are good starting points for building an artist's guitar tone. There is a tone template for Slash's Appetite for Destruction rig.
  12. To connect Spider V 20 to your iPad you will need the Apple Camera Connection Kit.
  13. If you want to run Spider V flat turn off all effects, and for the amp you can select "no amp" from the clean amp category. If you are running pedals into Spider V I recommend using an amp model.
  14. The Spider PC app is the same for all Spider V models, from the 20 up to the 240. From my previous link, you can use the "All Software" pull down menu to locate Spider V remote. You'll be taken to a download page, just be sure to choose the right OS.
  15. PodGO has a computer editor, but it does not have an editor for mobile device like Spider V/Spider Remote. User created tones can be downloaded from for PodGO. You will find a lot of similar amps/cabs/effects between PodGO and Spider V, but the PodGO uses the same model set found in Helix, so the quality of modeling is much higher. PodGO also has an effects loop so you can easily use it with other external pedals.
  17. To save presets on Spider V, press and hold the rotary encoder knob. You will be prompted to press and hold again to save. You can also use the free Spider V Remote app for ios/android or mac/PC to edit and save presets.
  18. Make sure you are selecting the stereo version of each effect. Plug the L and R output of HX Effects into your Big Sky, then L and R out of the Big Sky into each amp. For some effects, turning up the spread parameter will help with stereo sounds.

    Each preset will have noise gate, wah, volume pedal, compressor, EQ, reverb and 3 open spots to assign the effects of your choice. The Spider Remote app is free to download for computer or smart device, if you would like to check it out the features and browse the amps/effects. Here are a few screenshots from the app:
  20. Spider V comes bundled with Cubase LE recording software. Just register your amp in your Line 6 account and you will be sent a link to download Cubase LE. To record with Spider V; connect the amp to your computer via USB, make sure the selector switch on the back of the amp is set to the correct USB port. If you are using a PC you will need to download the correct drivers from Once your Spider V is connected to your computer, open your recording software and select Spider V as your input and output in the audio settings.
  21. No, the remote app only works with Spider V amplifiers.
  22. Classic mode will turn off the cab and mic model. You will be playing through the amp model and using the physical cab. I like to think of FR vs Classic as Recorded tone vs Amp in the Room. In FR mode you have an amp model + cab model + mic model. Whenever you are listening to a record you are hearing the recorded tone of that amp, which means you're hearing the amp, microphone, and anything post that. In classic mode you are using the physical cab instead of a modeled cab, so there is no microphone model. This is closer to the sound of sitting in the room with your favorite amp, rather than hearing one played back on a record or mic'd up and played back through studio monitors.
  23. I would look at the 10 band EQ and see if every one of the frequencies is being used to shape the sound. If only a couple of areas are EQ'd then you can translate that to Spider V's PEQ. In an instance where more than 4 bands are being EQ'd it will likely involve some guesswork and going by ear. Try to visualize the EQ curve created by the 10 band EQ and then try and and recreate it the best you can in Spider V.
  24. Currently HX Stomp is limited to 6 blocks. Once firmware 3.0 drops HX Stomp will have 8 blocks.
  25. I also highly recommend Jason Sadites's videos/YouTube channel. Very in depth look into how to build a tone, and he creates excellent tones as well.
