    spider v 60 - amp sound going bad, sounds fuzzy

    Have you tried reflashing the firmware? It's an easy thing to try. It sounds more like a power supply problem which would require getting a support ticket. Try reflashing the firmware first.

    Can I create more than 32 banks on Spider V?

    Why not back up all the presets you want to keep on your computer? Then setup you're banks the way you want. You can always load the factory presets back on your amp when you want to. I'm sure there's a number of factory presets you'll never want to load, so just overwrite them with some of the other factory presets you want to keep. 128 presets is probably more than just about anyone can use.

    Min and Max in Volume Block

    If you assign the expression pedal (or an external expression pedal) to an effect parameter, the sliders are used to set the minimum and maximum limits of the effect. Otherwise, the sliders have no function.

    Help please.

    There isn't a speaker out of the Spider V 240 combo. Yes, there is a model of a bass amp, but the speakers in the 240 are GUITAR speakers and can't take the excursion of the low frequencies that a bass can put out. I wouldn't do it, but maybe you'll pay for new speakers for him, lol.

    Help please.

    Don’t do it. The speakers weren’t designed for bass and you could easily blow one.

    Need HELP dialing in classic rock tones

    You have to connect the amp to your PC using a USB cable. There is a switch on the back of the amp to select USB or iPhone, so select USB. Download the Spider Remote program from this site. Go to the Customtone page, and find a preset that might work. Download that preset to your computer Load the Spider Remote program and navigate to a slot where you want to load the new preset. Click on the Load/Save tab, click on "Import tone to Spider V" Select the previously saved preset. Click Open. The new preset should be loaded and "Bob's your uncle"!

    Need HELP dialing in classic rock tones

    You have several ways to find the tones you're looking for. Scroll through the presets already programmed in the amp. Find one that comes close to your desired tones, and tweak the front panel controls to taste. Use the Spider Edit program to make it easy to scroll through the presets and have vusual icons to show you what you're hearing, Go to customtone to find presets that work for the type of song. You can do a search to help you find them. https://line6.com/customtone/browse/spiderv/ Connect your amp to a Iphone or Android phone and download the Spider V app. You can search presets there too. Remember- Every guitar and guitarist sound different, so take a preset as a starting point. You should learn how to tweak the amp, cabinet and effects parameters. Many classic rock tones use a lot of different effects, amps and guitars. Good luck! (I take American Express or Visa, lol!)
  8. I have a interface that I will sell. Just PM me and we can work it out.

    Need Help with Amp Set-Up

    Do you have a PC or Mac? If you do, you can load the Spider Edit program and look through all the presets more easily. There are some from many different songs and artists that you might recognize. Also, it's easier to edit tones than on the front panel or the App. The thing is, you ears and your guitar are unique and there might be a preset that's a good starting point for the tone you're looking for. Start there, and then twiddle the knobs and listen to what's happening. The manual is your friend too. Good luck.

    Is that it done for Firmware ?

    I wouldn't hold your breath for an update, this is considered to be an entry level product and functions well for what is expected of it. The only improvement I would like is being able to bank up or down with presets on Spider Edit. It's such a pain to have to toggle one preset at a time to go from one bank to another.
  11. The Link connection is all you need. No midi cable necessary.
  12. If anyone has been checking out the information coming out of NAAM, Line 6 has announced that (finally!) with the release of Helix Core, DT amps will be fully integrated through the Line 6 Link connection. It will connect fully just like the HD series does, so you can control topology, class a/ab, triode pentode and preamp model. An added bonus is that you will be able to control all these parameters via Snapshot on the Helix. So cool!

    DT25 best neutral preamp?

    Plug into the effects return of the DT from an effects send of the Helix that is before the amp cab model. Obviously, the DT is it's own cab and you'll probably not want to send a cab processed signal to it. That's what I would do. With the Helix you can place an effects send anywhere in the chain.

    Speaker Brand used in Spider V?

    I'm not sure why you would want to replace the speaker in a modeling amp, especially the Spider V series. First, you have plenty of ways to modify the tones of the presets, from different amp models, different speaker cab models, pre and post eq, etc. Second, the speaker specs for the OEM speaker show an efficiency of over 100 db per 1 watt, so you aren't likely to find a speaker that is more efficient and therefore would make the amp louder. Third, since the higher models are a 2 way system, the efficiency of the 12 in driver needs to match the efficiency of the tweeter, so the frequency response of the system will be as flat as possible. To me the whole point of a modeling amp is to have the flexibility to make the widest options possible of different tones. For the money, the Spider V's give amazing tools to do just that. I have a number of nice tube amps that have one or two good tones if that's what I want. But the Spiders have plenty of ways to get the tones you need. If it doesn't, sell it and get something else.

    customtone page?

    Rule of Thumb #1: don't buy a product based on future functionality, buy it for what it can do now. That goes for guitar stuff, cars, computers, phones and just about everything else. If you were considering a Kemper, you might investigate Helix because it's much more of a pro level piece of equipment. Not that I don't really like my Spider V 240 for what it is.
