  1. How about giving us a bit of info on what patches were changed and/or added!
  2. No, only from the amp front panel.
  3. You're happy with Vanilla, Chocolate, and Strawberry- good for you. Personally, I find these improvements: -Much more user friendly editor, update and storage capabilities - the amps are a different flavor and more touch sensitive compared to earlier ones - the new delay is awesome sounding - the new Xotic clean boost is great for every amp I've tried. Since it's free, what do you have to lose?
  4. You are using the Android app that won't work with your laptop. They have released a PC/Mac editor that uses a standard USB cable to connect to your laptop. Go to the Download page on your laptop and download it to your laptop, do the install routine and you should be good to go.
  5. The software code for Pod HD is a different generation than the Spider V series, so the amp models wouldn't be compatible. According to LIne 6, they completely reworked the Pod Farm algorithms (Pod X3) in the Spider V series. Honestly, I had a Pod HD, and the Spider amp models come pretty close to matching the touch sensitivity and dynamics of the HD series. Plus you get a whole lot more amp models to select from.. I doubt if you'll ever see the HD models in the Spider V series.

    Worst amp ever?

    I totally agree that you should listen before buying an amp. Maybe the Spider V has too many options for tone shaping for you,because I'm getting stellar tones with mine. YMMV
  7. After connecting to my Ipad to look at the banks of tones for an upcoming gig, I noticed I could not save any tones to the "My Tones" folder, and the folder is empty. The only change I've made is to load the PC Spider Remote and connect my 240 to my PC to save the bundle of tones. Is this a bug, or do I have another problem?
  8. I bow down in humble embarrassment for my lack of faith in the Line 6 wizards to create a PC editor. The crow is half eaten for dinner, the rest for breakfast tomorrow. I see Slim in the doorway right now...
  9. No, they are different formats. Amplifi presets can be loaded into Spider V amps, though.
  10. Plugging into the XLR outputs doesn't mute the speakers, so there has to be another problem.
  11. There is no digital connection from the Pod to the Spider. You could use a two 1/4" to 1/8" mini plug cable to go from the 1/4" outputs of the Pod into the Aux In jack of the Spider.
  12. I wouldn't let the fact that there isn't a PC editor stop you. I'm using an Ipad, and it works well. You can edit all functions on it. You can edit on the front panel too of course. There are problems with some Android devices, check and see if yours is compatible. That might be a deal breaker. Honestly, the Spider V is light years improved over the IV. I had a IV. I would never gig or rehearse with it, and sold it quickly. I am very happy with the tones on the V; I'm using it regularly as a alternative to my Helix rig and don't feel like it's a huge downgrade. The amp models are much improved- dynamic and more accurate. I have no problem cutting through the band mix.
  13. Chances are slim and none that they will create a pc based editor, and slim just left town... :wacko:
  14. The preset switching delay on my 240 is fast. I don't notice any real gap when changing presets.
  15. I've been a recording engineer for about 40 years. I know all about EQ. The 120 couldn't keep up with a loud drummer, the 240 has no problem. Post EQ helps if you are trying to carve frequencies to cut better, but doesn't boost all frequencies, so apparent loudness is effected. I don't like to screw with my tone to overcome deficiencies of an amp. YMMV
  16. Have you tried your 120 with a loud drummer? At max volume, mine was barely getting by. And distorted sounds with naturally more compression got lost.
  17. My V240 is plenty loud too; I have no problem keeping up with our very loud drummer. The V120 couldn't, BTW, so I swapped it for the 240. Speaker efficiency might be a factor too. What cabinet and speakers are you using? Inefficient speakers can dramatically effect overall loudness. For example, in my Fender SCXD, the stock speaker is about 1/2 as loud as a replacement Eminence Legend 105!
  18. Since the headphone jack has a switch that cuts of sound to the speaker, if you haven't tried it already, try inserting and removing the headphone plug in several times to see if it's just a sticky switch. Good luck!

    Nope, none have a VDI input.
  20. I guess I'm not explaining it well. In a preset, if you have an external pedal connected to the FVB3, if you assign an effect to be controlled by an expression pedal, it automatically assigns it to the external pedal. I want to assign it to the internal pedal. I don't know any way to do that, Is there a way? When an external pedal is connected, if there is no effect assigned to an expression pedal, the external pedal controls volume, so some presets will have the external pedal controlling volume, and those with an effect being assigned will have the internal pedal controlling volume. This can be confusing during a gig., especially when you have both kinds of presets on one bank.
  21. There is no way to change the pedal assignment of the volume or the assigned effect. Once you assign an effect to be controlled by an expression pedal, it defaults to the external expression pedal. Is there a way to assign it per preset? I don't care if it's global, I just want to lock the external pedal to be volume.
  22. I've got the FBV3 and use an external expression pedal to control effects. What I've found is that when you assign an effect to the FBV3, it defaults the effect control to the external expression pedal. But since volume control defaults to the external pedal with no effect assigned, volume control switches to the internal pedal. I know that the red LED on the FBV3 indicates the change of mode, but it's easy to overlook it. This can be very confusing when gigging. Is there any way to lock the volume control to the external expression pedal when assigning an effect to the FBV3? That way the external pedal will always be volume, and the internal pedal will always be effects.
  23. Do you have the USB select switch in the correct position? It has to be switched to whatever operating system you've got- Windows or IOS.
