  1. There is the workaround, there are bluetooth streaming adapters that can be connected to the headphone jack. Simply a wired/wireless solution with no further integration into the Spider V amp than that.
  2. Sounds like you need to perform the "Calibrate" function from the FAQ: FBV Express Mk. II: 1) Hold D while powering on the FBV. Upon release, the pedal display will read 1. 2) Press and hold the pedal toeswitch until the 7 segment display changes to 2. This should occur instantly. 3) Set the heel to the heel (minimum) position, press the D button. The 7 segment display will change to 3. 4) Set the toe position (maximum) and press the D button. The tuner LEDs above the 7 segment display will light. 5) Move the pedal and verify that the tuner LEDs sequentially turn off as the pedal moves to the minimum position, and refills when moved to the maximum position. 6) Press D to exit I had to do this on mine after a firmware upgrade, but it worked correctly afterwards.
  3. On the previous Spider, yes you could use the Looper with the MKII Express. Spider V requires the use of the FBV 3. Would love to have the looper added with the two peddle press to reuse my existing FBV MKII Express. Now it's waiting for the FBV 3 to go on sale as the extra features don't currently warrant a purchase at retail over the functionality I currently have with the MKII Express.
  4. This is where the PC Spider Remote and the Mobile device Spider Remote need to get closer to parity. With the PC version, I can backup all the presets. I've done this for factory and also for any modified sets. Alas no tone cloud connectivity. Smartphone I have to deal with the backup individually but have tone cloud connectivity. Let's hope this continues to move towards unity of features across both platforms. Mind blown! Line 6, if you hadn't thought of this you should pick it up and carry it to a touchdown! Imagine the ability for customers to widen their sound stage using transmitters and multiple amps! Add some additional code flexibility for one to designate one V 120 as left and the other as right and you'd have a very wide stereo sound stage. Figure out the ability for the wireless to communicate patch changes and the floorboard would only need to be on a single amp. Adam_T, you get the double gold star award!
  5. Added the following idea to Ideascale. If the technology in the Spider V amp allows USB pass-through to the G10T with a possible firmware update and change to the Line 6 updater, that would be great!.
  6. The Relay G10T USB Charging Cable UPC: 98-033-0077 wouldn't provide an update capability, just charging only when away from the amp?
  7. I'd purchased a G10T to work with the Spider V 120 that I own. It works great, but the question I have is how does one update the firmware on the transmitter? The Line 6 Updater only sees the Spider V amp.
  8. Greenscreener, looking forward to your idea request so that I can vote on it.
  9. I record with a Sennheiser e 835 Dynamic Microphone with an XLR to 1/4″ cable with no problems at all. Preamp? It's there, just need to take advantage of it. I created a preset that uses the "Tube Instrument Preamp" from type Clean in Amp selection. Increase drive and volume and get fantastic vocals. You can use the compression and eq as well. Frequently use the Spider 5 V 120 as a PA with this preset when not using it for gigs. When doing this with Cubase, I don't use the compression and eq settings so that I can control it in software. I do use the compression and eq options when using it for vocals. It's really amazing what you can use a FRFR setup to do.
  10. Even Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS and other cloud providers have experienced disruptions. I receive an error message on search, so I'm sure that it'll be resolved soon. All the prior presets I'd saved locally are available. When you have access again, if there are some critical ones I recommend you save locally. Never know if you have connectivity during a gig.
  11. Chunil Corporation is also used by Marshall in addition to Line 6. Here's the specs (if the link copies correctly, uses flash at the site) It's actually quite a flat range driver. It's 40W as the tweeter horn is the remainder of the amperage. It's 60W for the V60, but that is the total of the bi-amp configuration. If you replace it, you'd want one that is also fairly flat or the modeling calculations Line 6 developed will be skewed.
  12. Sounds like it. That's a bummer, hopefully getting it returned or exchanged doesn't put you off of Line 6 gear.
  13. Should just work out of the box. That stated, when you attempted a firmware upgrade using the PC, did you have the connection to the SQUARE USB-B connector? A connection to the iOS port won't work with the PC app. The USB-B cable is also commonly used with printers, so you could borrow that if you happen to have a printer connected by a cable. I've always had good luck with Line 6 gear. If you purchased it locally I'd exchange it for a new one.
  14. I don't have an expression pedal to check, but the FAQ talks about a tweak-able parameter being assigned to the external expression pedal. Looking through the Spider Remote application thought, I don't see that this parameter can be assigned. That stated, I have the lower end FBV MKII express, so the app may only allow me to modify based on WAH and VOLUME because that is what is detected as supported by my controller. I'll keep an eye out for a used FBV 3 to try this sometime.
  15. Be sure to up vote, I've looked at the number periodically and don't see this increasing at the rate of the posts lamenting it's missing.
  16. When checking on the JM4 features, I see "With up to 24 minutes of recording time, and storage for up to 100 recorded jams, JM4 Looper lets you capture all your riffs and musical ideas." The Spider V looper is "60-second looper for layering guitar tracks to play along with" No, there is no comparison. The looper function is fun, but it's not JM4 replacement. That said, if you go to a V120 or higher, you can run the direct outs to the JM4 Looper and use it like a DAW.
  17. You may need to check with Line 6 support and open a ticket. You've already have gone through the "reset" process that I know of. I'd not opened mine as it's working fine, but I suspect it works the same way as the FBV 3 pedal that another thread repaired here: Obviously it voids the warranty, so if you are still under yours you should open a ticket and get it replaced/repaired under warranty first.
  18. LE 9.5.41 is what I have. To get access you'll need to follow a couple step process. 1. Register your amp, if not already performed and then go to your Line 6 account and select "Purchase History" under Hardware & Software. You should see a line saying "Cubase LE" under items with a "details" link. You'll be provided a download access code to use at MySteinberg. Click on "Create account" if you don't already have one and then provide the download code in the "Register eLicenser / Sofware & Enter Download Access Code" field. You'll then unlock and receive a separate "activation code" from Steinberg to use. 2. You'll select Cubase LE AI Elements during the version selection after running the eLicenser application. As for your iPhone, no need for any special software to "record" on an iPhone, you can use the native record app once the Lightning USB cable is connected. However other applications will provide a better experience. There are a large number of quality DAW (digital audio workstation) applications for iOS.

    You'll be provided a download access code to use at MySteinberg. Click on "Create account" if you don't already have one and then provide the download code in the "Register eLicenser / Sofware & Enter Download Access Code" field. You'll then unlock and receive a separate "activation code" from Steinberg to use. The version you'll actually install is: Cubase LE AI Elements, I'm on version 9.5.41.
  20. Sure! You can restore it from backup with Spider Remote. If you haven't backed it up already, be sure to backup any custom presets you've already created and then do the factory reset. Backup the factory and then restore your custom presets. Now you'll be able to restore individual factory backup presets from Spider Remote.
  21. All excellent questions! As for ideas and their submission, check out Search and see if you find an existing idea to vote for to increase it's view at Line 6, or if it's not there submit a new idea!
  22. Version 1.05.00 contains all the prior fixes, no need to start with the older ones and work your way forward. I don't know exactly the reason to show the prior updates other than Line 6 wanted to provide a choice for those customers that either want to roll-back to a prior version or have a list of what the prior updates entailed. Personally I think it would be best to have a check box that we could select that would only list the most current update.
  23. Glad you were able to repair your pedal and for such a significant cost savings.
  24. Sounds like the best plan for now. Hopefully you voted on the tempo change idea and it's eventually added. Check back every couple of months and see if this arrives.
