  1. I am interested in the new Relay G70 system, since it seems to really offer a lot what I need. I play two instruments (bass, e-cello) and switch in the middle of playing. Thus I would need to know the following: 1) How fast is the switch of scenes? 2) Do scenes switch without any noise? Note, my two instruments need gain adjustments and the switch has to be accomplished really fast. Can anyone tell me whether the G70 is suitable for such a use? Thanks for any hints.

    g30 updates

    I am very happy with my G30s and I received excellent service from Line 6. I have to say, the most important thing is that it works well and I can only report the best there. The sound is excellent and the G30 system never failed me. The only issue I had with firmware was with the oldest first generation model. I had interferences with my wireless network at home and I could not update the transmitter's firmware. But as I said, Line 6 provided me with a replacement at no charge (thanks Line 6) and since then all works like a charm and with the more recent firmware there is no more any noticeable interference with the wireless. BTW, that interference did not impede the G30 but made weak signal computer connections entirely unusable. When I rehearsed, my wife couldn't get on the internet anymore from her corner of the apartment. Moreover, if you get a new G30 system these days, I am pretty sure there is no issue with the firmware and all works right out of the box. That was at least the case with my 2nd system I bought. And in case you really do need a firmware update, it can be done at any good store and is a only "once in a lifetime" thing rather than anything else. I find it rather good that you can update the firmware, even of the transmitters. All in all, I can only say the G30 is an excellent wireless system, which I can only recommend. As I said, works reliably and the sound is excellent.
  3. To read this post with all the pictures I made, please skip immediately to the attached pdf (How to really update the firmware of a Relay G30 6-channel receiver (RXS06).pdf) According to my experience I am afraid, the instructions Line6 is providing at its knowledge sites, e.g. http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2650, are not all correct. What I have been using: i) Relay G30 6-channel receiver RXS06 (firmware version 1.0, as I learned later) ii) XD-V75 updated to latest device firmware (2.01) iii) Stereo (TRS) patch cable with 6.5 mm (1/4") male plugs on both ends iv) USB cable (mini on one side, A plug on the other) v) Computer with USB port and Line6 Monkey 1.62 These are the instructions with all the steps that really worked in contrast to what Line6 says: 1) Launch Line6 Monkey (any device, choice does not matter) 2) Login or make sure you are logged in 3) Use your USB cable to connect the XD-V75 (power switch of XD-V75 is off) 4) Plug the power supply of the XD-V75 plug into the back of the XD-V75 5) Make sure the screen of the XD-V75 says "LOADER ENABLED" 6) In Line6 Monkey click on button "Connect To Device…". The window may look similar to this: 7) You should get a window offering the XD-V75 device for selection similar to this: Make sure the XD-V75 presented as "Line 6 Wireless Device" Connection USB is selected and click button "OK". 8) You should now be offered a range of devices that can be managed through the XD-V75 when they are connected to the XD-V75 similar to this: Select there the "Relay G30 Receiver" (which is your Relay G30 6-channel receiver RXS06) and follow the instructions, i.e. 9) Plug the power plug into the Relay G30 Receiver (to turn it on) 10) Use the TRS patch cable to connect the audio output MAIN OUTS at the back of the XD-V75 with the audio output OUT on the side of the of the Relay G30 Receiver 11) Pull the power plug from the Relay G30 Receiver (to turn it off) 12) Click button "OK" 13) If all works well and the connection between the Relay G30 Receiver and the computer via the XD-V75 can be established, you will get progress bars similar to these and should then finally get an invitation to power up the Relay G30 Receiver similar to this 14) Plug the power plug into the Relay G30 Receiver (to turn it on) 15) If all works well you should finally see in Line6 Monkey your Relay G30 Receiver similar to this 16) Click on button "Update Selection" and you should get progress information similar to this till you get the success confirmation and Line6 Monkey tells you what device firmware is now present in the Relay G30 Receiver's flash memory similar to this That's all folks.
