  1. Are you sure about 2GB SD card? It's card properly working on Spider Jam? What version of firmware are you flashing? Sound as a good idea try with a pedal. I have FBV Shortboard MKII and it's awesome, because you can change more parameters than Express.
  2. You definitely need to go online and get a 2GB (or smaller) SD card. And with old format (I don´t remember what).
  3. Yes, Carlos, that file includes Spider Jam also II & III settings and features. For me has been so useful. You're welcome. Abrazos, amigo.
  4. I guess the problem with the post sellig procedures is because (in Spider Jam case at least) it's a incredible product... but they need sell newest. Also, Yamaha has some words to say about. Dude, try to download this file and take a look at it:!AiIl6s5VlinAwROY6EUvof5DgoVY
  5. Dude, you need to get the oldest SD card that you could find and no more than 2GB, otherwise it doesn't work with Spider Jam. I'm not absolutely sure what kind of SD card you need, but try the oldest. It's a wise choice starting with firmware update. Also, a gift: Patches & presets
  6. Do you know that SJ exports from .JAM to .WAV files?
  7. 1) I felt SO STUPID when I understood how this button works (AND NOBODY HERE HELPS ME): you must to press it repeatedly in the rhythm you want. Press it a couple of times keeping the rhythm you want and BPM will change to the rhythm that you press it the button. Also works with pedal. 2) I guess this point it is linked with point before. Check it and tell me. Or check page 3.1 of "Advanced Guide": "Time Stretch & Varispeed". 3) What firmware version has your Spider Jam? This looks like a bug.
  8. You must to decrease to zero "Playback levels" of "Song/Drums". Check page 1.2 of "Advanced Guide" (RTFM). Regards.
  9. Look for the oldest SD card that you could to find then try.
  10. Or connect your effects to "CD/MP3" input.
  11. Guys, what do you think if some of us ask to Line 6/Yamaha in IdeaScale a firmware update with our suggestions? I sent an idea: use button "Function 2" of FBV Shortboard MkII for pitch tune up or down with pedal in Spider Jam ( Other idea could be make more friendly the selection of tempo bpm, increasing or decreasing tempo using "Select knob". Other idea could be change or update size and type of SD cards. Etc. I ask to community to vote for these kind of ideas, because I think we can do a diffrence and get what we need/want to update our wonderful SpiderJam. Somebody?
  12. Did you understand section 2.2 of user manual? Then you must to understand that pedal controller works ONLY in user banks (see section B.1 of user manual). So, the buttons A, B, C, D change four patches between one of the nine user banks (also, see this video from 7:55 min: Save ordered your desired tones in user bank 1A, 1B, 1C and 1D and you could change between these sounds with A, B, C and D buttons of pedal controller. I don´t know how you could up or down between banks (1 to 9) using FBV Express MkII (I have FBV Shortboard MkII that has a couple of buttons to move between banks 1 to 9, also patches A to D), I guess you must to turn the wheel to change bank (1 to 9) then you could navigate between patches using pedal controller.
  13. Have you tried to plug any acoustic guitar in CD/MP3 jack? It's the most clean input that SJ has.
  14. Che, ¿probaste a instalarle un firmware más bajo que el que tiene? En algún lado encontré que alguien habí­a resuelto un tema similar así­: instaló el firmware más bajo que encontró en la página de Line 6 y luego fue upgradeando hasta llegar a la última versión. Te recomiendo que vayas probando las distintas versiones del firmware antes de pasar a la siguiente. Un abrazo desde Chile.
  15. Check this out:
  16. See this, maybe could help you:!ACIl6s5VlinAwRM
  17. Use Line 6 Monkey. There you will see Serial Number.
  18. I know it's not the tone that you are looking for, but, did you see this page? Perhaps you could get some ideas from there.
  19. Yep, I have it:!ACIl6s5VlinAwRM and:!AiIl6s5VlinAi8cTrv9iXGGYKareUw Both files could you help you. Good luck!
  20. Maybe helps (page A.3 of Spider Jam Advanced Guide [Rev B]): Aux Track Distortion Q: When I use the Aux track for recording my guitar track and I add Aux FX Presets, my guitar sometimes sounds distorted when I play it back; it sounds fine while recording. What’s up? A: When recording to the Aux track, you’re essentially in “input monitor†mode, meaning you’re hearing your guitar’s input, not its output. When you add Aux FX like EQ, for example, you’re also boosting level. This can result in distortion that you only hear on playback. The cure for this is, if you’re recording on the Aux track and you’re boosting your level with Aux FX, simply lower your input level to avoid distortion.
  21. Only in hell. No chance. Sorry. Yamaha don't show any interest in release new firmwares for Spider Jam. Good luck in Etiopia... I'm so disappointed about that, because I guess it is possible improve a lot of stuffs in Spider Jam with a new firmware release. I wrote several suggestions in Ideascale, but nobody read a lollipop. Whatever...
  22. I would have both... but a technological improvement could be a good reason to decide for AMPLIFi. It's a really hard choice. I'm a Spider Jam owner and I'm not pretty sure about buy an AMPLIFi to change my SJ. Drum tracks are really amazing. Good luck (buy both!)...
