  1. Hi, I've had my spider III, 75watt for a few years now. It's been fine apart from the plastic nut that holds the MP3 line in comes off regularly. however I've made sure it's been locked in fine recently. However after what I can assume to be a power cut a couple of weeks ago, the MP3-in/ Line-in, instead of playing the input aloud it simply sends out a full volume buzzing feedback noise as soon as the jack is in. It doesn't matter if the volume on the input is mute or if the guitar jack is in also, when in only guitar mode it amps it the guitar fine, full range treble to bass. I'm thinking there may be a separate fuse for the MP3-in line, which has now blown maybe? Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and managed to sort it, i'm thinking it's gunna be a take apart job? Any help would be Great! Thanks a lot.
  2. I have the Spider IV 30 -- the old model, with just four presets. When I change from one preset channel to another, on some channels I get hum/buzz/static, which disappears when I fiddle with the channel volume/drive knobs. Is this just one of those things that everyone experiences or can I adjust something to eliminate/minimize that? I also noticed that the volume differs from preset channel to channel -- goes way up or down as I switch. Any way to standardize the volume so that it remains the same as I change channels?
  3. Hi, all, when I got my Spider IV 30, I messed around with the original presets -- now I'd like to get them back. I have an amp with only four presets, not the newer one with many more. Any suggestions?
  4. I'm playing at home, so trying to keep things relatively quiet, but I'd like to get the best sound possible from the various Spider setting options (I'm all over the map, jazz, rock, blues, country). Am I going to get better sound quality if I turn the channel volume up on the amp and down on the guitar, or down on the amp and up on my guitar. I've been messing around and amp down/guitar up sometimes seems better, but I'm not sure. And if that's the way to go, how far down on the amp should I turn the volume? So, simply put: which guitar volume and amp drive, channel volume, and bass/mid-range/treble settings will give me the best sound quality at low volume?
  5. Hey what's up guys. A new user to the forum, but I've been using line 6 products for quite some time. Do a lot of mixing/AE work and looking to get better. That's besides the point :P So, I just picked up a PODHD500X and this thing is pretty amazing thus far. Have gotten some really great tones out of it already with the many custom amp/cab tweaks you can make. - We want to run this in a live application for gigs, however going into a cab does not give enough output volume to even be mic'd + the guitarist would like to hear what he's playing. - We have run this direct -in, however the monitor feedback gets a bit 'whiny' when standing too close to the monitors and is not a preferred method of running the pod. (Unless we go in-ears, but that's dropping a bit of cash) I've gone over the pedal settings a lot and as far as I know, I have all the volume settings adjusted at max, but it's still not cutting it. TL;DR- Running this into a cab, how do you maximize sound output? Cheers!
  6. I just recently updated my Spider IV 150 to current specs and am exploring the new Gain effects. One thing that has always bothered me with modeling amps is the slight delay when switching amp models or channels (from A to B etc.) It occurred to me that with the new Gain effects, you don't have to switch channels to switch to your dirty sound. It's almost like the difference between switching channels and stepping on a distortion pedal (which I assume is what Line 6 was going for). My only issue is that the Gain stomps just don't quite have the same feeling as the amp models with drive cranked up. I've found that Tube Driver gets pretty close for a good rock to metal sounds, when compared to the cranked Class A Red or Insane Red. The Screamer is nice too but, I don't know how to describe it... I suppose what I kept running into is two conflicting EQs between the amp model and the stomp model (which just took time to find a good balance or just pick a new FX1 option) and a difference in output level, the cleans always seem to be more full and a little louder then when I kick in the Stomp effect. In the end I guess what I'm asking is if other people run into this to, how they deal with it, how they use the Gain effects, if anybody has some tips how to apply those effects along with channel volume, gain, drive etc. and lastly do people prefer to switch from A to B for clean/dirty or use the effects? Thanks!!!!
  7. Hello Everyone, my first time posting to the forums. I've done a quick search on this and haven't found anything that gave any answers to my question....but sorry if this has been already answered and I just overlooked it. Anyway.... I recently purchased a Spider Jam combo amp and been trying to figure out how to connect the damn thing to my brand shiny new Macbook Pro? Do I need to go through the SD Card, or is there some sort of wires/cables like USB I could use? As for software on my Mac (OS X 10.8.4), for right now I'm just gonna use Garage Band. Mainly what I'm hoping to do is record my guitar to some of the backing tracks provided on the amp, and then share them with my Guitar Instructor. Any help or info about this would be greatly appreciated :)
  8. edit: no one replied so I'd rather change the message so no one stumbles upon this thread looking for an answer to a similar problem. thanks for the help line 6 forums
  9. Hello everyone I have a Studio GX and I was wondering if there is any way to put the line output to my amp so the sound comes through my amp and I don't need any headphones to hear what I'm playing. I know a Studio GX has a 1/8-inch guitar headphone/line output and a Studio UX1 has a 1x 1/4-inch headphone out so I should probably buy the UX1. But since I already have the GX, it would probably be cheaper to buy some converter/adapter(?) that converts a 1/8-inch output to 1/4-inch output so I can connect it to my amp. So my question is: Is it possible to connect my Studio GX to my amp with some kind of converter because I know its possible to convert a 1/4-inch to 1/8 inch since I have such a headphone. And will the quality of the sound be the same? Also will it damage my amp in any way if I would do that?
  10. Hi, I'm an intermediate guitarist who has owned a Spider IV amp for a long time and has been souly living off switching between the preset tones on the left dial (Metal, Insane, Twang etc...). I am not an expert and know next to nothing about amplifiers so if you could help me out here, thank you. There's 4 channel buttons at the top which are presets for a certain tone, When I change the tone on that channel, it reverts back to the standard built-in tone and forgets my customisations, how do I get it to save the changes? Sorry if this is extremely vague, the amplifier jargon hasn't sunk in yet. Still learning. Thanks :D
  11. Hey guys! New to the forums. I have one simple question. I just ordered a new set of knobs for the spider valve and noticed that the knobs braking are quite common. My problem is that i can't seem to get the old broken knob to come off. Anyone else out there with this problem? Any help is much appreciated Thank you, Nick
  12. Hi, I need some advice to match my Spider III 4x12 cab with a Krank Rev Jr Pro. The spider cab has two 8ohms inputs running in stereo and the left side input running 4 ohms in mono, my amp has a 16/8 ohms switch, i would like to know if it will be rigth to connect my amp with the swiitch in 8 ohms, to the right side of the spider cab, will this deactivated the left side of the spider cab, letting me use the 8 ohms side of the cab? thanks for your help!
  13. Hi there, A friend gave me an used FloorPOD and I can't figure out how to connect it to the amp / guitar (I'm new to all this, I'm starting to learn to play guitar), I read the manual but it was of little help, I read that the product is discontinued from Line6 and I can't seem to find any help for this. This is how I have it set up right now. -I restored it to default settings. -I plugged the amp to Left Output. -Guitar to Input. -Voltage 9V. I've tried different voltage levels, or switching out the cables, but I can't get it to work. Any help will be appreciated!
  14. Hello all, Several days ago, I received an LD15 bass amp from eBay and was able to actually start using it. Yes, I got burned on this purchase. When trying it out on two different basses and cords (just to make sure it wasn't any of my equipment), the amplifier continues to make a rattling noise primarily on the "E" string (though the "A" string is also affected at times). Never did I try to "crank" the volume of the amp; I didn't take it past the twelve o'clock position. Even turning down all knobs fully left except for the master (which was only turned to about 4 on the clean setting), the amp still makes an annoying rattling noise. The rattling is about as loud as the note being played. I realize that it is only a 15 Watt amplifier, but it still should allow me to play louder than essentially a whisper without the distinct rattling noise. I have turned all of the dials to various levels to see if that was the problem, and much to my dismay, I was not able to produce a healthy tone from this amp. Today, I took it to a reputable instrument and audio shop to have it looked at, and they told me that the speaker is essentially completely broken and will not function at louder volumes. They were able to tell me that there is nothing electronically wrong with it; the problem has been isolated to being a "busted" or "blown out" speaker. I had not even put any of the volume knobs past the recommended "12 o' clock" setting at any given point. Needless to say, this is very upsetting. Now I am looking at buying a new speaker for this device because I am sure I would really like the device if it were to work. My question is, first, how many ohms is this amp? Secondly, would fitting it with a new speaker rated higher in terms of wattage adversely affect the amp? (such as replacing it with a 20 or 25 W speaker) Thank you for reading this and assisting me.
  15. I have an HD500 (output set to COMBO PWR AMP) connected to a DT25 with L6 link. I know that if I create a patch with a single amp model that by default it will get reproduced on the DT25 channel A, and if I choose NO AMP, then by default it will swap to DT25 channel B. If I create a patch with 2 amp models, one on path A and one on path B, then the amp on path A gets reproduced on DT25 channel A, and the amp on path B seems to get blended in to the overall sound, but even if I choose a full amp model with default cab sim on path B, it just does not sound like it should do - it seems to be a poor fizzy version rather than a full rich version that I would expect. Now I know that having only one DT25 amp that the path B amp cannot be realised within the DT25 because it is realising the path A amp, however, I did think that it would take the entire modelled sound of the path B amp plus cab sim and blend with the "real" amp on path A. Is path B creating a true modelled sound but sounding bad because output is set to COMBO PWR AMP instead of STUDIO DIRECT? Or is it bad because a single DT25 isn't designed to handle a patch with two amp models? Or something else? So what is actually happening in this scenario?
  16. I had my amp in my car which was blown away in the May 20th tornado so I'm starting from scratch. I hope this makes sense, I have read that when using your PODxt Live through an amp you get the amps tone a little bit and that you can adjust the amps EQ setting to make it so the amps tone doesn't show as much. Is there a Line 6 amp or any other brand of amp or speaker cab that you can just have the PODxt Live's tone be 100% pure?
  17. Hi, I'm trying to convert older version of custom tones from GearBox and in the amp section of the tone which I'm trying to convert, it says "1953 Small Tweed" but the amp is not available in Pod HD Desktop. So do you know which amp is 1953 Small Tweed in POD HD Desktop?
  18. Hi, how can you understand which amp's tone is hard or soft with looking their names?
  19. La version française. Zur deutschen Version. With the latest v2.0 update for the DT25/DT50 amplifiers, you must send MIDI parameters to the amp to change the settings such as the preamp models. Here are the links to the MIDI documentation to reference when programming your MIDI gear to send the proper parameters to control the settings of the DT series amplifiers: http://line6.com/media/dt50/DT50_MIDI_CC_Reference_v2_0_RevA_English.pdf http://line6.com/media/dt50/DT25_MIDI_CC_Reference_v2_0_RevA_English.pdf http://line6.com/media/dt50/DT_MIDIGuide_v2_0_RevA_English.pdf Using the POD HD500/HD500x to Send MIDI Parameters to the DT amplifiers You can use the POD HD500 as a MIDI controller to send MIDI CC parameters to change. Just connect the MIDI OUT from the POD HD500/HD500x to the MIDI IN on the DT amplifier with a MIDI cable. Then, go in the POD HD500/HD500x's MIDI assign screen (by holding the MOVE button for a few seconds) to assign a footswitch to send the desired MIDI parameters to change the settings on the DT amplifier. From here, you need to reference the DT amplifier's MIDI CC reference charts above to assign the proper MIDI CC to a footswitch on the POD HD500/HD500x. For example, on the DT50 amplifiers, sending MIDI CC# 11 with a value of 0-30 will change the assigned HD amp model set to any one of the voicings on Channel A of the DT50. So, if you want to change Voicing I of Channel A on the DT50 amp from the original Fender Blackface to be a Hiway 100 amp model instead, do the following: On any preset (blank or not) on the POD, go to the POD's MIDI Assign screen by holding the MOVE button for a few seconds. We suggest doing this on a blank new preset so that you can use this preset to send these MIDI messages to your DT amplifier. Let's assign Footswitch 1 (FS1) to send MIDI CC# 11 with a value of 003. Press on FS1 so that the arrow is pointing to it in the POD's screen. Turn Knob 1 to select MIDI CH: Base. Turn Knob 2 to select Message: CC. Turn Knob 3 to select CC# 011. Turn Knob 4 to select Value: 003. You can exit the MIDI Assign screen by pressing the View button once. Now, by simply pressing the FS1 footswitch, you will be sending MIDI CC# 11 value 003 to the DT50 amp which will change the Voicing I of Channel A on the DT50 amp from the original Fender Blackface to be a Hiway 100 amp model. Press the Save button once, rename the preset with the knobs below the screen, then press the Save button once again to store these settings to the POD's preset. MIDI CC#11 value 0-30 will change the HD amp model on Channel A of the selected voicing on the DT25/DT50 amp. MIDI CC#12 value 0-30 will change the HD amp model on Channel B of the selected voicing on the DT25/DT50 amp. Here are reference charts for both the DT25 and the DT50 from the MIDI Reference guide to help you set your values when programming MIDI to the switches of the POD HD500/HD500x. MIDI can be assigned to any of the footswitches of the POD HD500/HD500x EXCEPT for the Bank Up and Bank Down switches. Using MIDI OX to send MIDI parameters to the DT amplifiers You can also use MIDI OX software to send the desired MIDI messages to your DT amplifier when using a dedicated MIDI interface connected between your computer set to work with MIDI OX and the DT amplifier's MIDI IN port. In MIDI OX, click on the Send MIDI Controller Messages button to see the following window: You’ll want to use the drop down window to select the desired controller event (as referenced in the documentation above such as MIDI CC# 11 or CC#12, etc.) and then select the value on the right (as in the previous example above, value of 0-30, etc.) then, hit the Send button to send that MIDI message to the DT amplifier. Notice the text by the numbers which are simply part of the standard MIDI spec. These descriptors are irrelevant for the DT amps – again, just look for the number that correlates to the DT parameter you want to send. It also may be confusing that the numbers are not listed sequentially. If you wanted to change the preamp for the current Voicing of channel A you would select number 11 (labeled expression in the MIDI OX drop down) and number 3 (if you wanted to load the Hiway 100 model for example) using the up/down buttons in the field labeled Value. Hit send and the current Voicing on Channel A should be the Hiway 100. Avec la dernière mise à jour 2.0 pour le DT25 et DT50, vous devez transférer des paramètres MIDI pour changer des configurations comme les modèles préamplis. Documentation MIDI : http://line6.com/med...evA_English.pdf http://line6.com/med...evA_English.pdf http://line6.com/med...evA_English.pdf L’utilisation du POD HD500 ou HD500x pour la transmission des paramètres MIDI : Vous pouvez utiliser POD HD 500 ou HD 500x comme contrôleur MIDI pour transmettre des informations MIDI CC. Connectez le MIDI OUT du POD HD500/500x au MIDI IN de l’ampli DT avec un câble MIDI. Dans le menu MIDI Assign (maintenez le bouton MOVE pour quelques secondes) et assignez la fonction MIDI désirée a un des commutateurs au pied pour changer les configurations sur le DT. D’ici, utilisez la référence MIDI CC des amplis DT au-dessus pour assigner des commandes MIDI CC propres à un commutateur au pied POD HD500/HD500x. Exemple : Sur l’ampli DT50, envoyer une commande MIDI CC# 11 avec une valeur de 0 à 30 changera le modèle ampli HD à un des tons sur le canal A du DT50. Donc, si vous voulez changer le ton 1 du canal A sur le DT50 d’un Fender Blackface à un modèle Hiway 100 : Sur un des presets (vide ou pas) sur le POD naviguez dans l’écran MIDI Assign (en maintenant le bouton MOVE pour quelques secondes.) Nous suggérons de faire ca avec un preset vide, comme ca, vous pouvez l’utiliser pour transmettre des commandes MIDI à l’ampli DT. Assignez Footswitch 1 (FS1) la commande MIDI CC# 11 avec une valeur de 003. Cliquez FS1 (la flèche doit pointer au FS1 sur l’écran du POD). Tournez le bouton pour sélectionner MIDI CH : Base. Tournez-le pour sélectionner Message : CC. Tournez-le pour sélectionner CC# 011. Tournez-le pour sélectionner Value : 003. Quittez l’écran MIDI Assign avec le bouton View. Poussez FS1 pour envoyer la commande MIDI CC#11 avec valeur 003 à l’ampli DT. Cette action changera le ton 1 du canal A sur le DT de Fender Blackface à Hiway 100. Poussez le bouton Save, renommez le preset avec les boutons dessous l’écran et poussez Save encore une fois pour enregistrer les configurations. MIDI CC#11 avec une valeur de 0 à 30 changera le modèle ampli HD sur canal A du ton sélecté sur l’ampli DT25/DT50. MIDI CC#12 avec une valeur de 0 à 30 changera le modèle ampli HD sur canal B du ton sélecté sur l’ampli DT25/DT50. Tableaux de référence : Vous pouvez assigner MIDI à tous les commutateurs à pied sur le POD HD500/HD500x sauf les commutateurs Bank Up et Bank Down. L’utilisation de MIDI OX pour envoyer des paramètres MIDI aux amplis DT : Vous pouvez utiliser le logiciel MIDI OX pour transmettre des paramètres MIDI à votre ampli DT si vous utilisez une interface MIDI connecté à votre ordinateur et le MIDI IN du DT. En MIDI OX, cliquez « Send MIDI Controller Messages » pour voir cet écran : Utilisez le menu déroulant pour sélecter la commande, comme MIDI CC#11 ou CC#12. Après, vous pouvez sélecter la valeur sur le côté droit. (Une valeur de 0 à 30). Cliquez « Send » pour transmettre le paramètre à votre ampli DT. Ici vous pouvez voir les descriptions a côté des nombres, ignorez-les. Cherchez le nombre que vous voulez configurer sur le DT. Exemple : Si vous voulez changer le préampli du ton sélectez sur canal A, vous sélectez #11 (le texte dit que c’est « Expression » mais ignorez ca.) et 3 dans le menu « Value » si vous voulez le Hiway 100. Seit der neusten Aktualisierung 2.0 für die DT25 und DT50 Verstärker müssen Sie MIDI Parameter and den Verstärker senden um Eisntellungen wie Vorverstärkermodelle zu verändern. Quellen zur MIDI Programmierung: http://line6.com/med...evA_English.pdf http://line6.com/med...evA_English.pdf http://line6.com/med...evA_English.pdf MIDI Parameter per POD HD500/HD500x übertragen: Sie können das POD HD500 als MIDI Controller verwenden um MIDI CC Parameter zu übertragen. Schließen Sie dazu den MIDI OUT Ausgang des POD HD500/500x an den MIDI IN Eingang am DT Verstärker mit einem MIDI Kabel an. Öffnen Sie dann das MIDI Assign Menu auf dem POD indem Sie den MOVE Knopf gedrückt halten um hier nun einen Fußschalter zuzuweisen, der dann die MIDI Parameter and den DT Verstärker versendet. Von hier an sollten Sie das oben erwähnte Referenzmaterial verwenden um die korrekten MIDI Parameter auf den Fußschalter zuzuweisen. Zum Beispiel: Wenn Sie vom POD die MIDI Parameter MIDI CC#11 mit einm Wert von 0 bis 30 an den DT Verstärker verschicken, wird das ausgewählte HD Verstärkermodell auf einen der Töne des Kanals A vom DT50 umstellen. Was also bedeutet, dass wenn Sie Voicing 1 des Kanals A auf dem Verstärker vom original Fender Blackface auf einen Hiway 100 umstellen wollen, machen Sie folgendes: Von irgendeinem Preset aus, öffnen Sie das MIDI Assign Menu indem Sie den MOVE Knopf gedrückt halten. Wir empfehlen, dass Sie einen freien Preset Slot verwenden, sodass Sie weiterhin von diesem Slot aus die MIDI Parameter versenden können. Verwenden wir nun Fußschalter 1 (FS 1) um die Parameter MIDI CC#11 mit Wert 003 zu versenden. Drücken Sie dazu auf den FS1 sodass der Pfeil auf den POD Bildschirm zeigt. Drehen Sie dann Knopf 1 um MIDI CH: Base auszuwählen. Drehen Sie an Knopf 2 um Message: CC auszuwählen. Drehen Sie an Knopf 3 um CC#011 auszuwählen. Drehen Sie an Knopf 4 um Value: 003 auszuwählen. Jetzt können Sie das Fenster verlassen indem Sie den View Knopf drücken. Nun können Sie, indem Sie FS1 drücken, die zugewählten MIDI Parameter an den Verstärker senden, was in unserem Fall dazu führt, dass Voicing 1 auf Kanal A auf das Hiway 100 Modell umgestellt wird. Drücken Sie den Save Knopf. Bennen Sie das Preset mit den Knöpfen unter dem Bildschirm um und drücken Sie dann wiederum Save um alle Einstellungen auf dem Preset abzuspeichern. MIDI CC#11 Wert 0-30 verändert das HD Verstärker Modell auf dem gewählten Voicing des Kanals A des DT Verstärkers. MIDI CC#12 Wert 0-30 verändert das HD Verstärker Modell auf dem gewählten Voicing des Kanals B des DT Verstärkers. Hier noch Listen der MIDI Parameter als Referenz: MIDI Parameter mit MIDI OX versenden: Sie können auch die MIDI OX Software verwenden um MIDI Parameter an den DT Verstärker zu schicken. Dazu benötigen Sie eine MIDI Schnittstelle für Ihren Computer, den Sie dann an den MIDI IN des Verstärkers anschließen, sowie an Ihren Computer. Klicken Sie im MIDI OX Fenster auf Send MIDI „Controller Messages“. Folgendes Fenster öffnet sich: Verwenden Sie dann das Dropdown Menu um den gewünschten MIDI CC# auszuwählen. Wählen Sie dann einen Wert aus auf der rechten Seite und klicken Sie den „Send“ Knopf. Achtung, im Dropdown Menu werden den Zahlen verschiedene Texte zugewiesen. Ignorieren Sie diese einfach. Die Beschreibungen sind hier irrelevant. Suchen Sie nach der Nummer und wählen Sie diese aus. Die Zahlen Sind außerdem nicht immer geordnet. Wenn Sie also das Voicing des Kanals A einstellen wollen, wählen Sie Nummer 11. Nummer 11 hat bei uns zum Beispiel die Beschreibung „Expression“, die uns aber nicht weiter interessiert. Außerdem wählen Sie die Nummer 3 im „Value“ Feld. Klicken Sie dann „Send“. Das derzeitige Voicing des A Kanals sollte nun auf Hiway 100 gestellt sein.
