  1. Another variable is that each amp model AND cab take different amounts of DSP. So the formula isn't as simple as: "I can have two amplifiers and a dual cabinet on one path no problem". It really depends on which models you're using. That being said, I've never had lockups with my unit, so I can't tell you if yours is defective. What I COULD do is have you send me a patch where you've hit the "limit" and I can try adding more blocks.. But I'm fairly certain our units would function identically in that situation. If you want to try that just send me a link to the patch (dropbox or something) and I can help you out the best I can. Otherwise I'd tell you to call Line 6 support.
  2. If you want stereo amps, you want to put one amp on path 1 and the other on path 2 and then mix the outputs. Putting both on path 1 is going to limit your DSP a ton. The unit has to model two amplifiers AND two cabinets on one DSP chip if it's all loaded on path 1. Remember that each path has a dedicated DSP chip. Splitting it up gets you what you're after. Check out the attached image. I'm working on a Tremonti/Alter Bridge tone. I have two seperate amplifiers on each path. This leaves me plenty of DSP horsepower for any effects I need on each output. I get the stereo sound with one amp on the L and one on the R channel. In this instance i'm using the Mesa Dual Rec. and Uberschall models. I should note that I only have the effects that I want in this patch, but I have room to add more without hitting the limit.
  3. My initial thought would be to make sure the models of the 808 and phaser aren't the stereo version. Running those into the amp makes them mono anyways, so it's a huge waste of DSP. Edit: Also, can you add models to the lower path (1B, not path 2)? If I want to run two amps in stereo I always utilize both main paths. Amps and cabs take up the most DSP by far. You can then tweak the outputs of each path to mix L and R for true stereo. I'd suggest looking at the templates in the preset browser (I believe it's at the bottom of the setlists) for an idea on what you can do. Spend some time to learn the best-practices of this unit and it really shines.
  4. You'll love it! I've been enjoying working through all of the possibilities with mine. As always, don't let the factory presets fool you... You'll want to only use them as a signal-path template to understand the routing possibilities. They sound OK, but they don't begin to do the unit justice. The low and high-cut filters on the cab models are your friend to really dial it in for your guitar!
