  1. From a Google search:  Q: How do I perform a factory reset on the Spider V series? A: Hold down the Home button to access the settings menu. Scroll down with the encoder to where it says Factory Reset. Scroll to the right and press the encoder knob to hit Yes.

  2. I can tell you that setting the looper so one stops it at the exact right time takes time to master.  The solution for me is to stop the recording, i.e. press the looper button to stop recording, on the 1 of the next measure.  So if you're in 4/4 and recording a loop that is 1 bar, count 1 2 3 4 and press the button to stop recording on the next 1.  But it has to be precise or you'll find that you're 4/4 time sig has become 4/4 +- 1/16 !

  3. Do you know how to tune using this amp? I donr know the correct led indicates what... thx

    The tuner on the amp is not very stable i.e. it vacillates/drifts quite a bit. I use a clamp-on tuner.  It should be clear in the manual - have you checked? - and on the amp. You press and hold the Tap/Tuner button.

  4. The Spider V30 software updater doesn't work. Also find that what there doing is using a 4 ohm's woofer at get there so call 30 watt amp.....false   must be at 8 ohm's or it's a lie. Removed 4 ohms cheap o and replace with a Peavey Blue and what a sound out of this V30 . I can see some much of a deferents, soft and clean . Bottom line from and OLD tech , if you can't run an amp @ 8 ohms to uptane 30 watts then it's a lie. O just lower the ohm's of the speakers and say 30 watts , it an old trick to sale big wattage. Sorry if I'm in the wrong forum, But my brother I fill was miss lead by The Guitar Shop in Little Rock , Ar as it was the last model they had and a demo. He got deceived in to buying it. Now because he feels that it's a good amp I will kept it as a Christmas Gift. By Line 6 lies about there product and also you can setup an account with them and try to sign in for the updates and there server will not see your password, so your left with a demo, I can't hurt my brother , But this company I personality will never purchase from, They add a lot of bells , Butt no drive in there products. Sorry just the way I feel about this gift. Don' t buy from The guitar shop in Little Rock Ar because you really don't get what you pay for. Just me: an electric guitar amp should have at least one tube to make it a clean sound and a IC chip hell know. Thank for your time     

    It is incorrect to claim that wattage must be measured with an 8 ohm speaker.  You certainly can have 30 watts output with a 4 ohm speaker and also with an 8 ohm speaker.  If the wattage with a 4 ohm speaker is 30 watts, with an 8 ohm speaker the wattage would be half or 15 watts. What you're missing is the voltage output.  If you're an old tech you should know that wattage is calculated via amperage times voltage.  It has nothing to do with impedance.


    You're also wrong that the software updater doesn't work.  Maybe it doesn't work for you so you need to do some trouble shooting.  It has worked fine for me and for others.


    It's no secret that amp manufacturers may use less expensive speakers to reduce costs.  I happen to like the sound from both my Spider V 120 and 240.  More expensive speakers could produce a more likeable sound.  It's a matter of opinion, not fact.


    Finally, to bad mouth a music store based on incorrect facts is irresponsible.

  5. I'm not sure about your exact setup, but with Spider V, assigning effects to external pedal is performed in the amp, not the pedal.  The feature to use is usually titled "controller assignment". Here's an example in the Pod HD Pro:


    The answer for you is probably here:

  6. I thought I had seen the answer to this question but cannot find it.  I have programmed a delay I want to use in multiple presets.  Is it possible to copy only a single effect from one preset to another?  I tried in Spider Remote but could find nothing.  I couldn't find anything on the amp either.  A search resulted in no solution.  And nothing in the manual.  Thanks.  Thorne

  7. I was glad to see that Line6 finally closed the back of the Spider V series.  My drummer always complained that the sound coming out the back of my amp was deafening at gigs (especially when there was a reflective wall behind the stage).  Plus the sound that emanates out the front is fuller now with the closed back and I prefer that all the sound the speaker has to offer not get lost out the back of the amp.

  8. Guys - I use the DST Screamer as a volume boost assigned to a footswitch. I use it PRE and raise the GAIN until I get the desired volume.  Just want to offer an alternative.  I'll try the PEQ idea.  Thanks.
