  1. My AMPLIFI 75 always defaults to its very low level of volume each time I turn it on. It does not save or store that setting I last used on the Master volume or any tone bank I may have been using. That also reverts to the first Bank, #1 position. I don't consider this a defect. It just is what it is. I put the volume up to whatever I need when turning the amp on each time. No biggie!
  2. Are you logged into the account you created using the app? That may be the difference!
  3. I have used my AMPLIFi with a friend's powered Yamaha H5 small studio monitors ($300 for a pair in and the sound blew me away! I could play a small venue with that set up! Also, the stereo effects were killer!and you do not need an adapter as the Yamahas have a 1/4 inch and/or XLR out jack for standard PA's
  4. I never received that email. All of my knowledge about L6 products is by trial and error as the company virtually offers zero tech support and the poorly written manuals are nearly useless IMHO! Jim
  5. Ya. Thx. I realized that too and updated the app. There is no new firmware update. Have not tried the new feature in Music yet.
  6. The article by Line6Will is misleading! It says you need the newest firmware to use the newest remote app software, 2.60. Most of us already have the newest firmware, 2.50.2. But there is no newer firmware or update to 2.50.2. If you have that you can download the update to the remote app. Jim
  7. I've figured out that there is no new firmware! Just an update to the remote app that includes a new feature in the music tab for downloading jam tracks. Have not tried it yet. Jim
  8. A Line 6 tech posted something about downloading the 2.60 firmware for the Amplifi, but it does not appear to be available. Is there a timetable for the release, because that is not stated in the forum article. In the settings part of the remote app, it does not state that a new firmware is ready for download. Same with connecting by USB with the Line 6 Updater. It only shows the 2.50.2 in the list of available firmware downloads. Jim
  9. Maybe it's because I've had zero issues using the remote app on my phone or iPad. Piece of cake to edit so far with no BT issues that I frequently read about on these forums. Guess I'm in the 1%. But I should not gloat!
  10. After several months of owning and using my 75, I realized that while it was a really fun toy, that I'd rather spend the hours on improving my skills and technique than playing with all those tones...just sayin' Jim
  11. True: all the l6 devices using a remote app such as the Amplifi and Firehawk work this way. You cannot add or delete blocks. You can exchange existing ones, for example a mod can be switched to a delay. And you can change their locations in the signal chain to some degree. You can edit and save blocks as I described earlier. But you can only work with the assigned blocks that appear in the app for each tone. Jim
  12. After I wrote a ticket with L6, they immediately suggested I upgrade my Mac to the newest operating system. They had very little knowledge of USB 3.0. But another user on these forums reported having no difficulty at all with their same year Mac using USB 3.0 on El Capitan operating system. I plugged the Amplifi into my daughter's 5 year old Mac laptop and it worked perfectly. I recorded directly into Garage Band within seconds as a test. Go figure! Jim
  13. Assuming you are using the remote App. Right? If you do use the app you will see your tone by name. Press "Edit." It takes you to the parameters of all the various effects blocks. You can select a block such as mod and look for the on/off icon. The effect must be turned on the on will light up when it's on. You can choose a different effect or edit the present one using several built in parameters. When you finish editing your tone you must save what you did once again using the app. Your choices include saving to My Tones, saving with a new name to my tones, or saving to the Amplifi. It will then ask you where you want to save your tone on the amp. You can overwrite any of the existing tones by saving your edited tone to the amp. I tend to save to both My Tones and the amp. Have fun! Ps you can also edit any tone you download from the Cloud. (still have to save after editing). Jim
  14. I have complained about this on many previous forums and spent countless hours with the techs at L6 and Apple. No one can figure out why my Amplifi 75 can be read via USB on many older Macs that I've tried but will not work at all (cannot be read by) my 2014 iMac running El Capitan that has USB 3.0 ports! Those ports work fine for other devices such as printers, portable hard drives etc. but not the Amplifi! I don't know what it means to be "class compliant" but this may also be why I cannot use the USB features of the Amplifi with my setup. Anyone? Thx. Jim
  15. Did you try updating exclusively with your Bluetooth device? It's possible but takes nearly an hour. Go to settings within the app to see if an update is recommended. Then just follow on screen instructions to update firmware. But sure you are not already updated to the newest one! Jim
  16. Not sure why Line 6 didn't think of more options between the Amplifi 150 and the far superior Firehawk 1500. A FH 1000 with included FBV controller for instance at say $799 US. I never did understand their business model. Jim
  17. Hi Antii. I'm really enjoying mine too. The cloud has some surprisingly great tones that you can save to My Tones or to the amp. Some are too radical or gimmicky. You can also play through a powered audio system and play backing tracks or even YouTube videos through the amp. Have fun Jim
  18. Hi. I tried using the FHFX (before the intro of the FH1500) through the Power Amp In of a standard Fender amp and was greatly disappointed! Sounded like a Xerox of a Xerox! If as mentioned above you are going through the FOH you will still need a powered biamped monitor to hear yourself and the myriad of HD tones availabile. You will still be completely dependent on the quality of the house PA for what the audience hears. Take into account the stage volume of your monitor mixed with the PA to further confuse your band mates!! If you're deducated to a few warm and slightly overdriven sounds for blues and jazz, why not just go with a Fender Blues Jr, HRD or Princeton Reverb and a pedal or two like the Fulltone OCD? All you need IMHO!! Jim
  19. Just because it is possible to use this way does not make it the right choice for a bass amp. Especially when there are so many great bass amps on the market! Are you only playing bass or do you have other uses for a FRFR modeling amp? Just curious!
  20. I've had the 75 for a couple of months and agree with squeegy! This is a great bedroom, basement or practice amp. You would never use an Amplifi to gig with IMHO. The Bluetooth is unreliable and it simply does not have the huevos to compete with a loud drummer. For gigging I would much sooner go with the FH 1500 and an FBV Floor pedal to control it. If you're a rich maniac techy, you might opt for a Helix/DT 25 or StageSource setup. The Amplif is what it is. People who are disappointed usually have BT connectivity or software issues. I don't and I'm enjoying mine. Jim
  21. Hi. Even though Line 6 says it the Amplifi does not support USB Hubs, the only way I could get mine to update was via the USB 1.2 port on my extended keyboard. This is a hub but it worked and even allowed the Amplifi to be recognized as an output device for playback (not input unfortunately). I updated to newest firmware using this port. Jim
  22. Nada! After spending many hours with Apple's techs no one could determine why I was having this issue. They just said bring the amp and computer to a Genius Bar and good luck! Line 6 wouldn't even respond!! The Amp works fine via USB on older Macs!💀
