    Spider V 240 amp

    They don't. You'd have to plug into the front of the amp.

    Spider V 240 amp

    What different effect are you wanting? The Spider has more than 200 effects- 78 amp models, distortions, overdrives, EQ's, compressors, delays, reverbs, modulation effects, etc. built in. As Stonefx said, you might want to get one of the available floorboard controllers to access the effects like a regular effects pedal. The whole idea of the Spider series is to have an all in one solution to finding the amp tone, and the added effects to create your guitar sound.

    Helix and the DT amps

    It's easy to do for yourself, plus it has the advantage of letting you experiment with the parameters to find your desired tone. There are only a few amps that are class A designed- Vox, Matchless, Fender Champ and Supro.

    Tuner Accuracy

    Close enough for jazz...
  5. Line 6 just released the new Spider V software- you can update your original Spider V to Mk II specs. New features: "My Tones" Tab - log in with your Line 6 account to access presets saved to the cloud. "Cloud" Tab - search for presets on the Line 6 customtone.com cloud created by Spider V users. Adds support for "Speaker" Classic/Full Range parameter within the cabinet settings. Adds support for preset labels. I've checked out the new "classic" speaker mode on a few presets. They sound great- big improvement! They've really improved the presets, and organized them so that they give you more realistic models of the most desired amps.
  6. 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!

    Helix and the DT amps

    The DT amp settings aren't set for each amp model from the factory. They are just giving you the option to set each preset to control the DT the way you like. It's just another option of tone control that you can use a preset 2 store. You might like a marshall with a Class A output stage, or a Vox with class A B. It's up to you.

    Helix and the DT amps

    What do you mean fix? Control over the DT amps is a new feature with the 2.8 Helix software update. Up until now, you had to change the software in the DT amp, connect a midi cable, and use DT Edit to configure the amp and then create a midi cc in your Helix preset to control the DT. Now, that's all done by the Helix. All you have to do is connect the Line 6 Link and go to the page I mentioned and you can see all the parameter sliders that control the DT. Here's a few tips when you're on that page: load a preset in the Helix navigate to the output block and click locate the DT25/50 page select and click Choose Preset mode to be able to control the amp via presets (global and off are the other options) The top slider controls what preamp will be active- Helix or DT. Select the one you want The next 3 sliders control the Topology, Class A or B, and Pentode/Triode modes The next slider turns the onboard DT reverb on or off, the next control the default amount of the reverb. The last 3 sliders control the "hidden" DT50 only options. To add Snapshot control over a slider, either click on the slider cursor (square box) and press "S" on your keyboard, or right click on the slider, scroll to the bottom and select Snapshot. This way you can control the DT parameters via Snapshots. Hope this helps.

    Helix and the DT amps

    You can control the DT Amp with the helix with just the line 6 link cable attached. Go ahead and re-initialize your DT so that the stock amps are loaded into the preamp section. Connect the Line 6 link cable. When you open up a preset on the Helix, navigate to the output block. You will see a Tab that says DT 25/50. Click on that and you can select all the parameters of the amp with every Preset Individually. You don’t need to connect a midi cable anymore. The helix is totally compatible now.

    Spiver V 60 is garbage

    Obviously simulcast was mentioning a different amp- the Spiver V. I guess it's a homemade amp he's been playing in his parent's basement. But as a 45 year old, he doesn't get out much...

    Helix LT and DT25

    Helix is now 100% compatible with DT amps with the release of the 2.8 Works great!

    No "Mode" Option - Stuck in Snapshot

    This has happened to me 3 times now. It won't return to preset/stomp mode unless I do a global reset. Has is been reported as a bug?

    Using Helix / JTV / DT amps

    The new software allows you to configure the DT amps, just like the Pod HD did. The rest of the functions are the same as before in terms of adding effects. The tube output stage of the DT amps will always be active. To change the parameters of the DT using HX Edit: load a preset navigate to the output block and click locate the DT25/50 page select and click Choose Preset mode to be able to control the amp via presets (global and off are the other options) The top slider controls what preamp will be active- Helix or DT. Select the one you want The next 3 sliders control the Topology, Class A or B, and Pentode/Triode modes The next slider turns the onboard DT reverb on or off, the next control the default amount of the reverb. The last 3 sliders control the "hidden" DT50 only options. To add Snapshot control over a slider, either click on the slider cursor (square box) and press "S" on your keyboard, or right click on the slider, scroll to the bottom and select Snapshot. This way you can control the DT parameters via Snapshots. I hope this helps.

    Version 2.0 of V Remote does not work for Windows

    What is the error message you're getting?

    Spider V MKII 240

    That's correct
  17. gtrman100

    Spider V MKII 240

    The hardware is the same, but the software is different! Very important because the new software includes the "Classic" mode which makes the amp sound more like a traditional combo amp. You can buy a Spider V MkI and download the new software to make it identical sounding to a MkII.

    Spiver V 60 is garbage

    How much time did you spend with it?

    Spider V MkII Update- new software for Spider V

    You can't update the software via Android or IOS. You have to use the Line 6 updater program which is only available on Mac or PC.

    Spider VMKIi and HX Effects

    If you are asking whether or not you can load external IR's into a Spider amp, the answer is no. The amp and cab models are imbedded into the amps software and can only be changed through a software update from Line 6. That said, there are a ton of different cab models in the Spider software that can give you a wide range of tones.

    Spider V MkII Update- new software for Spider V

    The mk 1 is identical to three mk 2, except for a bit of cosmetics. Find a good deal on a mk 1 and do the update and you're set.

    Helix/DT amp integration on the way!

    It's here and it's awesome! From the Helix cab pages, you can select the amp and all the parameters that were available on the Pod HD. I've edited my presets, and it's easy to do.

    Spider V Mkii

    It's out now. Just go to the download page, search your version of Spider V.

    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.
