  1. I just got a 1Spot Truetone CS-7 which has 7 isolated outputs. One is 12v 100mah. I had been powering my G10 with a Lipo power bank but figured I'd try using that 12v output none of my pedals use. I bought a simple 5.2 - 24v step down to 5v board on Amazon. Has a regular female 9v DC socket one side and a USB Type A the other. The Power supply came with a reverse polarity cable in the extras. If you don't have one, you probably need one to get the right polarity for the micro USB, you you can get those separately for less than $10 here. Worked a treat. If you have any spare outputs up to 24v this does a good job.
  2. You could use a RC model car UBEC that taps the main battery to power the receiver. Those usually take any voltage and steps down to 5 or 6 volts (usually switchable via a dip switch or little bridge plug. They are pretty inexpensive. But you would have to attach your own 9v and micro USB plugs. Here's a couple under $10 on amazon prime.

  3. The screen seems a decent size on my monitor which is 1440p. I use it with Image line minihost modular which is for PC and Mac.
  4. My favourite VST host is IL Minihost Modular by Imageline (people that make FLStudio) It is a beta WIP though. It's fantastic, low latency, low resources, easy to use. Has a modular visual flow type diagram for linking VST's and Midi and works great on PC and Mac. One of the best things is that you can save a graph at any time in Minihost modular and all the settings you currently have within your VST. In this case Helix native are stored with the graph. So you can save Helix presets outside of Helix native. Just load up minihost modular and in the file menu you can load a graph, or pick a recently used one from a drop down list or recently used ones. Works great. Here's a couple of quick screen grabs of it in Windows. This screen shows the Flow Graph view with the Helix native in the signal chain and Helix native plugin opened in it's own window. This is the default view. You can hook up external IR loaders or any other VST's in your graph before or after Helix native. So you have a lot of flexibility and it's very intuitive to use. The Yellow spline in the graph is your audio while the greenish/cyan is your midi control. Right click menu shows an option to view the plugin only which puts Native in a single window like below. Despite being beta software, I highly recommend it if you want a really good VST host. Especially good for live playing setup.
  5. All 5 of my devices work so long as I use an OTG adaptor. From budget $40 chinese tablets, through Galaxy S3, Asus Memopad 10" and LG G3. Android 4.4x through 5.1x
  6. This is the OTG adaptor I use. The golden one is slightly cheaper than silver.
  7. It works fine on my 5 Android devices. Galaxy S3, $40 chinese android tablet, $70 cheapo tablet, Asus memopad Tablet, LG G3.\ I just had to buy an OTG adaptor. I tried running a VM box android emulator on PC but had lockup problems with the mouse pointer. Just go and vote for an editor. Line 6 development team members hang out on thegearpages forums and said that voting was the best way to get something done.
  8. I'd be interested in any MIDI CC# codes that the amp might respond to. that's what a bunch of Marshall CODE enthusiasts used to make their own PC editors like the one in the pic below. It would also be helpful for anyone who has a midi footswitch/pedalboard or other controller kicking around. I use a wireless headtracker as an expression pedal with Wah in Amplitube. Would be cool to be able to do something similar with the Spider V.
  9. I'd like to see better search options for tones. Preferably with filters. Some people have been posting really cool advice for creating patches and left their author names. Plus I have downloaded a couple of fantastic patches and noted the authors name. But there is no way to see what other stuff either of those people have created.
  10. In windows you can record the guitar so long as you have the ASIO drivers available on the Line 6 support site installed. It only records the guitar, not any computer audio like backing tracks that you are sending through USB. ASIO is a third party low latency audio streaming format in Windows. I think OSX has something similar built into the OS, Line 6 might have simply left it to it's own devices. Check the line 6 support site just in case there are extra utilities, drivers etc for the Mac. UPDATE: Just looked. There are only firmware updates for OSX, nothing else.
  11. You might also have to do some muting if your tone isn't clean enough. It's a must if you want to use distortion well. An experienced player spends more time touching strings other than the ones that are making the noise to stop them sounding. It requires using parts of both hands in all the right places and takes a long time to master.
  12. I suspect it's the same as the 60 which I have. When you plug in a second guitar via cable into the Spider V the G10T is no longer picked up. When you unplug the wired guitar it works again.
  13. Cool idea, I looked it up and there are a bunch off apps for android to mirror and control your Android on the PC wirelessly. Only problem is that you still have to hook your android device to the amp by USB.
  14. I figured out a way with a utility called ASIO Link It's not ideal because it's quite confusing, you get a window like the one above for each asio app you use and there aren't any decent tutorials. Its like a switchboard that lets you mix audio streams between multiple ASIO apps and windows sources and combine them into a single audio stream. It creates it's own playback and recording devices that you can hook up the output to combine the window audio playing through the Spider Speaker with the guitar into a single low latency output the broadcasting software can use. How low the latency is depends on your setup.
  15. I heard someone already did it successfully and judging by the photos of the official cable. It does look very straight forward. I assume the Transmitter has some overcharge protection circuitry built in what with the battery being Li-ion or Li-poly. I'd wait till you get the amp before worrying. It doesn't take long to charge and probably only has a few hundred mAh battery. The guitar is playable with only a few minutes charge. you might not need the separate charger. Especially if you have it hooked up to your computer, you can watch a youtube video or something while you wait. The speaker actually sounds pretty decent playing videos and music being full range.
