  1. 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?
  2. 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
  3. 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

    Spider Cab Iii 4x12

    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!
  5. 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!

    Line6 Ld15 Bass Amplifier Question

    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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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?
  9. 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?

    Amp Names In Pod Hd

    Hi, how can you understand which amp's tone is hard or soft with looking their names?
  11. 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.

    DT50/DT25: Terminology

    Zur deutschen Version. La version française. DT50/DT25 Terminology FAQ Headroom: how much signal “room” you have before encountering distortion, particularly saturation. If you have more headroom, the amp will feel like it responds to your playing subtleties better and you’ll have more dynamic range for expressive playing. With less headroom, you get into serious distortion without playing as hard. Topology: the layout of a “feedback topology” of the amp circuit referring to the voicing of the global negative feedback of the DT50. Changing circuits will change the voicing of the amplifier. Class A: an amp design where current is flowing through the tubes constantly. Headroom is deceased, so tone becomes distorted sooner. Class AB: an amp design where a pair of tubes work together by “trading” duties (one is conducting current while the other is in cutoff). Sometimes the term “push-pull” operation is used to describe this mode. Provides greater headroom and tone remains clearer as a result. Bias: the voltage value between the control grid (grid #1) and the cathode, which dictates the power tube’s behavior in terms of distortion cutoff/saturation. There are two types of biasing methods: fixed-bias and cathode-bias (sometimes called self-biasing or auto-biasing). The DT50 operates in fixed-bias when in Class AB. It switches to cathode-bias when in Class A. Pentode: the power output tube is a 5-electrode object (cathode, control grid, screen grid, suppressor grid and anode/plate). In the DT50, when you select “Pentode” mode, you’re operating the EL34’s as pentode tubes. Triode: a mode of operation where the power tube has 3 active elements (cathode, control grid and the anode/plate). Setting the front panel control switch of the DT50 to “Triode” alters the behavior of the EL34’s to act more like a triode, which reduces the power output and affects the high end as well. Negative Feedback Loop (NFL): a certain amount of the amplifier’s output is fed back into the amp to reduce distortion and increase headroom. A higher amount of NFL results in a tighter response overall, which some guitarists may be seeking in their tone. A lesser amount of NFL can make the amp feel more “wild” and “unruly”, which can be also desirable to many guitarists. It depends on what you’re after and the context of what you’re after, musically-speaking. Tonestack: the EQ-region inside of an amp where the Bass, Mid and Treble controls live. Sag: the response of the amp to what is being played on the electric guitar, usually heard at the beginning of playing a note or chord that follows a rest. Sag will cause the amp to get a bit quieter, while also causing more distortion. DT50/DT25 FAQ Headroom: Der Headroom beschreibt den maximalen Spielraum, den Sie haben bevor es im Verstärker zu Verzerrung und Übersteuerung kommt. Mehr Headroom bedeutet, dass der Verstärker einen größeren dynamischen Bereich abdeckt auch während ausdrucksstarkem Spielen. Weniger Headroom wiederum bedeutet, dass es früher und öfter zu Verzerrungen kommen wird ohne hart zu spielen. Topology: Das Layout der Schaltung des Verstärkers. Die Änderung dieses Layouts wird den Klang des Verstärkers verändern. Class A: Bei diesem Layout fließt Strom kontinuierlich durch die Röhren. Headroom ist verringert und Verzerrungen treten früher auf. Class AB: Bei diesem Modell arbeiten beide Röhren zusammen. „Push-Pull“ wird hier oft im Englischen als Beschreibung verwendet. Das Resultat ist ein vergrößerter Headroom sowie klarerer Ton. Bias: Die Anzahl Volt zwischen Steuergitter und Katode. Bias steuert das Verhalten des Verstärkers. Es gibt zwei Methoden für Bias: Eine fixierte Ausrichtung (fixed bias) und die Katodenausrichtung (cathode bias) (auch automatische Ausrichtung genannt). Der DT50 ist im fixierte Ausrichtung Modus in Class AB und wechselt in den automatischen in Class A. Pentode: Die Röhre ist ein 5-Elektroden Objekt (Katode, Steuergitter, Bremsgitter, Schirmgitter und Anode). Im DT50 schalten die EL34 Röhren sich in den Pentode Modus wenn Sie „Pentode“ auswählen. Triode: In diesem Modus hat die Röhre nur 3 akive Elemente (Katode, Steuergitter und Anode). Wenn Sie das Gerät auf „Triode“ eisntellen wird die EL34 mehr wie eine Triode verhalten. Sie erhalten weniger Output und die Höhen werden auch beeinflusst. Negative Feedback Loop (NFL): Ein Teil des Outputs eines Verstärkers wird wieder zurück in den Verstärker gespeist um Verzerrung zu vermindern und den Headroom auszudehnen. Mehr NFL bedeutet eine bessere Reaktion und weniger NFL resultiert in einem wilden und unbändigem Ton. Es kommt aber darauf an, was Sie persönlich mögen. Tonestack: Der Teil des EQs in dem sich die Eisntellungen für Bass, Mitten und Höhen befinden. Sag: Die Reaktion des Verstärkers auf das was Sie auf einer elektrischen Gitarre spielen. Sag kann man meist am Anfang einer Note oder eines Akkordes hören. Der Verstärker wird ein wenig leiser und verursacht mehr Verzerrung. DT50/DT25 FAQ Headroom: Si un ampli a beaucoup de Headroom, ca veut dire que cet ampli garde un son clair avant de rencontrer de la distorsion et une saturation sonore. Jouer l’ampli se sent comme vous avez beaucoup plus de gamme dynamique. Si vous jouez sur un ampli avec moins de headroom, vous obtenez des distorsions graves sans jouer aussi fort. Topology: La disposition du circuit dans l’ampli. Changer cette disposition change le son de l’ampli. Class A: Une topologie où le courant circule constamment à travers les lampes. Moins de headroom = distortion plus tot. Class AB: Deux tubes coopèrent. Plus de headroom = le son garde la clarté plus longtemps. Bias: La tension entre grille de commande et cathode. Le bias configure la saturation de la lampe. Il y en a deux modes de bias : bias fixé et bias à cathode. Le DT50 est en mode bias fixé en Class AB et change à bias à cathode en mode Class A. Pentode: Le tube de sortie est un objet avec 5 électrodes: Cathode, grille de commande, grill écran, grille d’arrêt et anode. Sur le DT50 si vous sélectez « Pentode » les tubes EL34 sont en mode penthode. Triode: Le tube de sortie a trois éléments: Cathode, grille de commande et anode. Si vous mettez le DT50 en mode Triode, les EL34 agirent plus comme des Triodes. Puissance de sortie réduite et Triode affecte les sons de haute. Negative Feedback Loop (NFL): Une certaine quantité de la sortie du ampli est réintroduit dans l’ampli pour réduire la distorsion et pour ajouter du headroom. Plus de NFL se traduit par une réponse meilleure et moins de NFL vous fournis on ton sauvage et incontrôlé. Le NFL dépends à vos préférences. Tonestack: La région de l’égaliseur dans l’ampli. Les contrôles Basse, Mi et Aigu s’habitent ici. Sag: La réponse de l'amplificateur à ce qui est joué sur la guitare électrique. Normalement, vous l’entendez au début de la note. Sag provoque de la distorsion. DT50/DT25 FAQ

  15. Application Q: What are the presets on the Lowdown 400/750 HD? A: The presets are available from the manual download section. If you would like to return your unit to the original presets, please perform a factory reset (see the Lowdown trouble shooting section). Q: Are there any video tutorials I can view to learn more about the Lowdown? A: Please see the Lowdown Movies in the product description page. Q: Is there an editing software that works with the Lowdown amplifier? A: No, there is editing software for the Lowdown series as there is no way to connect the lowdown amplifier to your computer. Q: Is there a "manual mode" so I can avoid the presets and just use the knobs on the amplifier? A: Yes, one you have selected your preset you want to run in manual mode, hit the preset again and the light will turn off, indicating you are in manual mode. Q: How do I change the tuner's reference frequency on the Lowdown? A: The Lowdown Tuner Reference Frequency cannot be changed - it's 440 all the way. Setup/Connections Q: Is there a direct out on the Lowdown 400/750 HD series amplifiers? A: Yes, there are balanced line level XLR outputs on the on the Lowdown 400/750 HD series. The line level XLR output is not affected by the output volume of the amplifier, and will send a cabinet simulated tone to your mixing console. Q: What if I do not want the cabinet tone but rather a unaffected tone (like a DI Box?) A: If you desire an unaffected bass tone, the Lowdown 400/750 HD series does have a quarter inch preamp output to send an unaffected tone to a mixer. Q: Can I use a Line 6 controller Lowdown 400/750 HD? A: Yes, we recommend using the FBV Shortboard with the Lowdown series. The FBV will work with the Lowdown series (although there will be numerous buttons that have no effect), and the FBV Express will not scroll through the banks. Q: Do the Lowdown 400/750 HD series amplifiers have an effects loop? A: No, none of the Lowdown 400/750 HD amplifiers has an effects loop. Q: Can I connect an external pre-amp (i.e. Line 6 POD unit) to the Lowdown 400/750 HD? A: Yes, an external preamp can be connected to the instrument input of the Lowdown, be sure to send an instrument level signal rather than a line level signal to avoid clipping and/or damage to the Lowdown. An external pre-amp can also be run into the MP3 input jack, which would relegate the Lowdown amplifier to a powered speaker. Q: How do I connect an external cabinet to a Lowdown 400/750 HD? A: The Lowdown 400/750 HD series has two (2) parallel Neutrik Speakon outputs to connect a single 4 ohm cabinet or an 8 ohm pair of cabinets. ***Connecting a single Line 6 LowDown cabinet (8 ohms) to the LowDown 400/750 HD single 4 ohm output cuts the power output to the cabinet in half. 375 watts from the LowDown 750 HD, and 200 watts from the LowDown 400 HD.

    Amplifier Troubleshooting

    Francais. Deutsch. If you are having trouble with your Line 6 amplifier, please check the following points before taking your amplifier to your local Authorized Service Center: Q: I am noticing that I am getting volume/tone changes when playing at a high volume? A: Try "parking" the knobs (except master volume) at 100% to ensure that the knobs are not moving to the "current" location rather than the preset location. Recall a preset once the knobs are parked to ensure the tone you are working with is a preset rather than the current knob position. Q: My master volume has almost no change past 6? A: This is due to the volume pot installed on all Line 6 amplifiers. A solution to this would be to replace it with an "audio" pot, but this modification wouldn't make it louder - just smoother. Line 6 originally installed audio pots on the AXSYS, but players didn't like them because they made the amp feel "wimpy". Players also did not like the fact that they had to turn the amp up to about 4-5 before it would start "happening" and 7-8 on the gig. Even though there was still a good amount of headroom, player feedback was that they preferred the amplifier with the traditional volume pot, so that is the style used with Line 6 amplifiers. - Perform a factory reset of the unit: Factory Reset Procedures Volume and Signal Troubleshooting - turn off other volume controls not being used (i.e. volume trim pots) - Ensure there is no debris in the CAT-5 or input jacks. - Unplug all other units from the audio chain, as well as any CAT-5 cables and controllers. - Use a high-quality cable you know is functional (i.e. works in a different application) directly into the instrument input, bypassing all other effect units. - Ensure that the guitar/bass is outputting signal. Try the amplifier with another instrument you know is functional (if possible).Make sure all the input and output jacks are tight. Check the instrument with different pickup settings to make sure it is not a bad pickup connection. - Ensure that both the positive (white) and negative (black or red) wires are fully connected to the speaker, and that the speaker output from the amplifier is plugged into the correct jack (when applicable). - Check the effects loop (if the amp has one). If you're not getting any signal, try plugging into the RETURN side of the loop to see if there is any output. Likewise, with a source feeding the input, plug the SEND into another line level device to see if you're getting signal. Tone and Rattle Troubleshooting - Check the make sure all buttons on the unit are not stuck - Be sure that all screws on the unit (handle, corners, baffle boards, speakers) are snug. - Ensure that there are no foreign objects (i.e. silicon packs) stuck in the speaker enclosures Q: Are the tone controls on the on a Line 6 amplifier passive or active, and where is the "flat" level? A: Each amp model is different, and the controls behaves like the target amp. Most tube amplifiers will have a passive tone stack with makeup gain. Line 6 tone stacks are designed to behave just like the modeled amp (both the good and the not so good). Some amplifier tone stacks are the closest to flat when set B-0, M-10, T-0, but it is different for each model. Power Troubleshooting - Ensure that there is sufficient power coming from the power outlet into the amplifier. Try a different circuit to ensure there is not a power issue at the outlet. - Make sure that the both ends of the power cable are snug in their sockets. Tube Amplifiers Troubleshooting - Make sure the tube is firmly seated in the tube socket. - If the tube(s) make a popping sound accompanied by intermittent light from tubes, the tube is failing and needs to be replaced. - If there is "white frost" inside the tube, the tube has cracked and it must be replaced. - If there is a "tube" ringing (not due to loose screws), there may be a failing tube. Replace the 12AX7s individually and the matched 6L6 pairs to determine if a tube has failed. Replacing Tubes - Always replace power amp tubes with matched set(s) every 12-24 months depending on the amount of use, and have the bias checked and/or adjusted by an authorized Line 6 Service Center. - Preamp tubes (such as the two 12AX7s) only need to be replaced when they are microphonic (ringing sound from tubes when tapped), noisy, or damaged. Replacing tubes should be done a Line 6 authorized service center. The digital stage and analog tube stages communicate with one another, and so are not like the all analog tube (valve) amps from the 1960's and 70's. As a result, one cannot swap tubes out like in the old days. So please use the following specified tubes (valves) when the amp is taken to a service center. For Spider Valve series amps use the following specified tubes, 12AX7B China for pre-amps. 5881WXT Sovtek (matched pair), with the base cup bottom. 5881WXT Sovtek (matched quartet), with the base cup bottom for the HD-100 and HD100 MkII. For the Alchemist series amps use the following specified tubes, 12AX7EH Electro-Harmonix low microphonic for V1-3 pre-amp positions. 12AX7AC5HG Ruby Tube HG-High Gain for V4. 12AX7B China for V5. 6L6GCMSTR Ruby Tube (matched pair) power amp. For the DT50 series amps use the following specified tubes, 12AX7EH Electro-Harmonix approved for the DT50 pre-amps. EL34EH Electro-Harmonix (matched pairs) for the power amps. For the DT25 series amps use the following specified tubes, 12AX7EH Electro-Harmonix approved for the DT25 pre-amps. EL84EH Electro-Harmonix (matched pairs) for the power amps. Visit your local Line 6 Service Center for servicing a tube amp, as these have High Voltage Shock Hazards. Product Repair Si vous avez des problèmes avec un des amplis Line 6, vérifiez les points suivants avant de retourner l’ampli. J’ai des changements de son si je joue à un volume très fort. Pourquoi ? Laissez tous les boutons sur 100% excepte le Master Volume pour assurer que le bouton ne tourne pas à la position courante mais à la position du preset. Démarrez un preset pour assurer le ton est le propre. Presque rien ne se passe si je tourne le Master Volume passe 6, pourquoi ? C’est à cause du potentiomètre installé dans les amplis Line 6. On pouvait installer un potentiomètre audio qui ne changerait pas le volume. Line 6 a essayé d’installer des potentiomètres audio mais les joueurs ne l’ont pas aimé. Dépannage de volume et signal : Éteignez les autres contrôles volumes comme les potentiomètres Volume Trim. Assurez qu’il n’y en a pas du débris dans les jacks CAT-5 ou entrée. Débranchez tous les autres appareils de la chaine audio aussi bien que tous les câbles CAT-5. Utilisez un câble que vous savez qu’il fonctionne directement dans l’entrée, contournant les effets. Assurez-vous que la guitare ou basse produit un signal. Essayez un autre instrument que vous savez fonctionne. Vérifiez tous les jacks d’entrée et sortie. Essayez l’instrument avec autres micros pour vérifier que ce n’est pas un micro défectueux. Vérifiez les câbles blanc et noir ou rouges connectés au haut-parleur. Vérifiez la sortie du haut-parleur du ampli est branché correctement. Vérifiez la boucle d’effets, si vous ne recevez aucun signal, branchez le dans le RETURN. Avec une source dans l’entrée, branchez le SEND dans le Line In d’un autre appareil pour vérifier le signal. Dépannage hochet et ton : Vérifiez si un des boutons et collé. Toutes les vis doivent être serrées. Assurez vous qu’il n y en a aucun objet étranger dans haut-parleurs. Est-ce que les contrôles sur l’ampli Line 6 sont passifs ou actives ? Et ou est le niveau « flat » ? Tous les modèles sont différents et les contrôles changent pour chaque modèle. La plupart des amplis à tubes sont passives. Le ton des amplis Line 6 sont conçus pour se comporter exactement comme l’ampli modelé. Quelques modèles sont très près de « flat » sur B-01, M-10 et T-0 mais c’est différent pour chaque modèle. Dépannage alimentation: Assurez-vous qu’il y en a assez de courant pour l’ampli. Vérifiez lé prise de courant. Vérifiez le câble et les connecteurs. Dépannage des amplis à lampes : Vérifiez que le tube est bien assis dans la douille. Si le tube fait des sons popping avec de la lumière intermittente. Vous devez remplacer le tube. S’il y en a de gelée blanche dans le tube, vous devez le remplacer. Si le son sonne c’est possible qu’un des tubes est défectueux, remplacez les tubes individuellement. Remplacement des tubes : Remplacez les tubes tous les 12 à 24 mois selon l’usage. Et laissez vérifier/ajuster le Bias d’un centre service Line 6 autorisé. Les tubes de préampli doivent uniquement être changés s’ils sont microphoniques endommagés ou bruyant. Si vous avez des problèmes après toutes ces suggestions, veuillez visiter un centre service Line 6 s.v.p. mais n’oubliez pas la preuve d’achat si vous êtes dans les 12 mois de garantie. Réparation des produits Sollten Sie Probleme mit Ihrem Line 6 Verstärker haben, dann überprüfen Sie bitte erste die Folgenden Punkte bevor Sie sich an ein Line 6 Service Center wenden: Ich kann Ton/Lautstärkeänderungen feststellen wobald ich sehr laut spiele, woher kommen diese? Stellen Sie die Knöpfe, abgesehen vom Master Volume auf 100% um sicherzustellen, dass diese sich nicht zur derzeitigen Position bewegen sondern auf der Position des Presets bleiben. Starten Sie dann ein Preset um zu überprüfen ob der Ton der des Presets und nicht der der derzeitigen Position des Knopfes. Mein Master Volume verändert die Lautstärke beinahe nicht nach 6, warum? Dies liegt am installierten Potentiometer, Line 6 hat in frühen Modellen mal einen Audio Potentiometer ausgetestet aber den Spieler gefiel dieser nicht. Lautstärke und Signalproblembehebung: Schalten Sie andere Lautstärkeregler ab (Trim Pots zum Beispiel). Stellen Sie sicher, dass kein Dreck im CAT-5 Eingang oder anderen Jacks ist. Entfernen Sie alle anderen Geräte und Cat-5 Kabel aus der Kette. Benutzen Sie ein Kabel, von dem Sie wissen dass es funktioniert und schließen Sie es direkt zwiscen Gerät und Instrument, umgehen Sie so alle zusätzlichen Effekte. Stellen Sie sicher, dass Ihr Isntrument ein Signal abgibt. Versuchen Sie falls möglich ein anderes Instrument von dem Sie wissen, dass es funktioniert. Versuchen Sie unterschiedliche Tonabnehmereinstellungen. Stellen Sie sicher, dass das weiße sowie das schwarze bzw. rote Kabel korrekt an den Lautsprecher angeschlossen sind. Überprüfen Sie außerdem den jack des Lautsprechers. Überprüfen Sie den Effects Loop, falls vorhanden. Wenn Sie kein Signal bekommen, dann versuchen Sie diesen in den RETURN zu stecken um zu sehen ob Sie ein Signal bekommen. Genauso sollten Sie auch den SEND in ein anderes LINE IN Gerät stecken. Ton und Rassel Probleme: Überprüfen Sie alle Knöpfe um zu sehen ob einer feststeckt. Überprüfen Sie ob alle Schrauben fest angezogen sind. Stellen Sie sicher, dass keine unerwünschten Objekte im Kautsprecher sind. Ist die Tonsteuerung aktiv oder passiv? Und wo ist die flach Einstellung? Jedes Modell ist unterschiedlich und die Steruerung des Verstärkers verhält sich so wie die des modellierten Verstärkers. Manche Modelle sind sehr flach, wenn sie auf B-01, M-10 und T-01 eingestellt sind, dies trifft aber nicht unbedingt zu da dies auch unterschiedlich ist zwischen den verschiedenen Modellen. Röhrenverstärker Problemlösung: Stellen Sie sicher, dass die Röhren fest im Sockel sitzen. Sollten die Röhren ein Poppen machen und dazu unterbrochen leuchten, dann ist diese kaputt und muss ersetzt werden. Falls weißer Frost in der Röhre ist, dann hat diese en Loch und muss ebenfalls ersetzt werden. Sollte ein Röhre klingeln, könnte es sich auch um eine kaputte Röhre handeln. Ersetzen Sie dann die Röhren einzeln um festzustellen, welche kaputt ist. Röhren ersetzen: Lassen Sie Röhren immer mit passenden Sets alle 12 bis 24 Monate je nach Nutzung ersetzen und lassen Sie den Bias von einem autorisierten Line 6 Service Center überprüfen bzw. anpassen. Vorverstärker Röhren brauchen erst dann ersetzt zu wernden, wenn sie mikrofonisch oder rauschend klingen bzw. beschädigt sind. Sollten Sie dann immernoch Probleme mit dem Verstärker haben besuchen Sie bitte ein Line 6 Service Center. Vergessen Sie aber nicht den Kaufbeleg falls Sie sich noch in den 12 Monaten der Garantie befinden. Produktreparatur

    Axsys/AX2 F.A.Q.s

    Note: The AX2 and Axsys amplifiers are discontinued and now listed as a Legacy Product. Application Q: Where can I get the presets for the AxSys amplifier? A: The Axsys presets are available in .JPG format and can be downloaded from the attached document at the botton of this document. Q: Which Line 6 controllers are compatable with the Axsys/AX2? A: The Line 6 Floorboard and the FB4. See the following link for more information: Line 6 Floorboard and FB4 F.A.Q. Q: Can the stomp box modelers be used with the AX2? Is there much duplication between the stomp boxes and the AX2 (ie, if they can be used together, am I opening up a whole new range of possibilities or just doubling up on functions I already have? A: Line 6 Stomp Boxes will work great with the AX2. The effects in the AX2 are completely different than the effects in the Stomp Boxes. The effects in the AX2 are for the most part just generic effects, where the effects in the Modelers are modeled after classic effect devices used by everyone from Hendrix to Van Halen. Q: How do I adjust my tuner reference frequency back to 440Hz? A: While in tuner mode, turn the MIDDLE knob on your amp or POD. This will allow you to select a tuning reference frequency anywhere from 436-445Hz. Q: How can I change the volume level of the tuner on my AX2/Axsys? A: While in tuner mode, simply turn the CHANNEL VOLUME knob to the desired level. This will set your tuner level without effecting the other channels of your AX2/Axsys. Q: It is possible to control the reverb level of the AX2 with the wah pedal of the Line6 floorboard? A: It is possible to control the reverb level of the AX2 with the wah pedal of the Line6 floorboard. There are several parameters of the AX2 User preset that must be adjusted properly for this to be implemented. Here are the settings: Reverb row / reverb level set to 0 Main row / Delay/reverb knob set to 90. Wah row / wah type set to 5.18. Wah row / wah depth set to 99. Increasing the Reverb row / reverb level setting will adjust the wah pedal minimum reverb level. Decreasing the Wah row / wah depth setting will adjust the wah pedal maximum reverb level. Q: How can I make my own personal patches? A: To make a custom set up of factory patches, simply call up the patch you want, hit "save" (the display will flash), then use the "Bank up/Down" and "Channel select" buttons to choose the location you want that patch to be in. (See pages 4*3, 5*10 and 9*1 in the AX2 manual) Q: What MIDI control functions can I access using the AX2? A: The AX2 Manual on Page 6.6 details the functions of the AX2 that may be assigned for continuous control by the Wah pedal. There is also an AX2 MIDI sysex document that details all of the functions that can be controlled using external MIDI controllers. Q: How can I get a good direct output from my AX2/Axsys? A: Unlike the Flextone, where the speaker compensation is done in the analog world, the AX2/Axsys cabinet emulation is done in the digital world. Because of this, when the speaker emualtion is on, it is going to be present in the direct outs as well as the speaker outs. For AX2/Axsys users, one solution can be to use a pair of analog boxes (like a Hughes & Kettner Red Box or a Digital Music Cab Tone Dual) to feed the PA in live situations and then use the AX2/Axsys compensated direct out for recording purposes only. There is another inexpensive and simple solution to the line out/speaker compensation issue. Many users find that when the speaker compensation is activated, the sound of the AX2/Axsys speaker is not objectionable but simply too dark (there needs to be more treble in the sound) while the amps direct out sounds great through the PA. It is possible to simply feed a little of the direct sound through your vocal monitor and then have some of the low end rolled off. You can achieve this by "Y'ing" the AX2/Axsys direct output into two mixer channel line inputs and using the second channel to EQ your personal monitor feed. This allows you to use the first mixer channel to send the full range AX2/Axsys direct sound through the main house sound system. Then, send the separately EQ'ed sound from the second mixer channel to your vocal monitor. The sound that comes through your vocal monitor is "tinny", but when it gets mixed in with the "bassy" sound of the AX2/Axsys speakers, the resulting sound is pretty well balanced. You may also find that there is also an added depth to the sound similar to running a bi-amped bass guitar rig. You can also apply this concept of Y'ing the direct out to connect to another amplifier other than your vocal monitor. You can use another combo amp or a "Hot Spot" type monitor. You may also find that adding external effects to the "monitor" feed gives you some extra sound processing possibilities. Q: It is possible to control the delay level of the AX2 with the wah pedal of the Line6 floorboard? A: There are several parameters of the AX2 User preset that must be adjusted properly for this to be implemented. Here are the settings: Delay row / delay level set to 0 Main row / Delay/reverb knob set to 90. Wah row / wah type set to 5.12. Wah row / wah depth set to 99. Increasing the Delay row / delay level setting will adjust the wah pedal minimum delay level. Decreasing the Wah row / wah depth setting will adjust the wah pedal maximum delay level. Set up Q: If I only run one speaker on the amp (AX2 212 upgrade) Will I still get the full stereo signal (i.e. the rhythm of the delay will be the same)? If I DI the AX with a mono cable into the PA will I also get stereo delay in a mono? A: You will get only 1/2 of the signal from the amp if you run one speaker. You will still get stereo out of the direct output. You will get mono out of the amp if you use a mono cable. It can be a complicated matter to run a direct output from an amplifier to a live sound system and simultaneously monitor that amplifier's internal speakers on stage. The issue of the cabinet emulation on the AX2 is somewhat more complex than it looks at first glance, since unlike the Flextone, where the speaker compensation is actually done in the analog world, on the AX2 it's done in the digital world and, because of hardware limitations, can't be both present (at the direct out) and not present (at the speakers) at the same time. To do so would require adding additional A/D conversion and a divergent data path, neither of which is a software solution, or an inexpensive, ungradable hardware change. The AX2 design was never intended to have both in simultaneous use. Was it a bad design decision? Maybe, but hindsight is always 20/20, and all of our products are being used in ways that transcend their original design, for good or ill. For AX2 users, one solution can be to use a pair of analog boxes (For example, I have a H&K Red Box and a Digital Music CabTone Dual-lok'd to the inside of my AX2 cabinet) to feed the PA in live situations and use the compensated direct out only for recording purposes. Not the most elegant solution, but a very usable and portable one. There is another cheap and simple solution to the line out/speaker compensation issue. Many users find that the sound of the AX2 speakers, when speaker compensation is activated, is not objectionable, but is simply too dark. There needs to be much more treble in the sound. The direct out sounds great through the PA. You can simply feed a little of the direct sound through your vocal monitor. Have the low end rolled off my personal monitor sound. (you can achieve this EQ setting by "Y'ing" the AX2 direct output into two mixer channel line inputs and using this second channel only to EQ your personal monitor feed). This allows you to use the first mixer channel to send the full range AX2 direct sound through the main house sound system and to other players' vocal monitors. Then, send the separately EQ'ed sound from the second mixer channel to your vocal monitor. The sound that comes through your vocal monitor is "tinny", but when it gets mixed in with the "bassy" sound of the AX2 speakers, the resulting sound is pretty well balanced. There is an added depth to the sound, similar to running a bi-amped bass guitar rig. We realize that this solution is not superior to having separate control of all AX2 amp outputs, but it works without having to spend the extra money on external speaker emulation devices. We hope this solution gives you one more option that may help you get a better monitor sound, in some situations. You may also be able to apply this concept of Y'ing the direct out to others amplifiers than your vocal monitor. You might be able to use another combo amp or a "Hot Spot" type monitor. You may also find that adding external effects to "monitor" feed gives some extra sound processing possibilities. Q: Can the AX2/Axsys power an external speaker cabinet? A: Yes, an external cabinet can be connected to the AX2/Axsys by disconnecting the existing Axsys speakers and connecting the extension cabinet. The speaker outputs of the AX2/Axsys must be connected to an 8ohm or 16ohm load. Do not use a 4ohm load, as it will cause the amp to overheat. Q: How do I record with the AX2/Axsys line out? A: The LINE OUT/HEADPHONE jack of the AX2/Axsys is a stereo output so we suggest that you use a "Stereo TRS" (Tip/Ring/Sleeve) jack to take advantage of the stereo output. A TRS jack is basically a stereo jack much like the jack on the end of your stereo headphones. You can use a mono or guitar cable in the LINE OUT/HEADPHONE output but you will only get one side of the stereo field. Set the Master Volume at 2-1/2 or lower to get a line level output that won't overdrive your mixer input. Remember that you can unplug the AX2 speakers when recording so that you don't have to have the amp playing in the room. If you need to have the amp playing in the room at a higher volume than 2-1/2, you may need to use an external 20 dB pad to bring the level of the signal going to the mixer back down to a usable level. See page 5*15 in the AX2 manual for more details Q: Can I adjust the STEREO LINE OUT/HEADPHONE level of my AX2/Axsys? A: In order to have the desired AX2/Axsys stage volume but not overdrive the input of the mixer, an external 20dB pad can be placed between the LINEOUT of the AX2/Axsys and the input of the mixer. Most mixing consoles already have a 20dB pad built in, but if necessary, an inexpensive outboard unit can be purchased. Rolls manufactures one called the DB25 Matchbox. It doubles as a direct box and a pad and should work great in this situation. Specifications Q: Is the Aux input on the AX2 unbalanced mono or stereo? A: The Aux input of the AX2 is unbalanced mono. The mono sound will be sent to both sides of the stereo output. Troubleshooting Q: How do I reset the Axsys/AX2? A: The factory reset for the Axsys 212 or AX2 is to hold down the USER PRESET and the SAVE (or STORE SOUND) buttons. Q: I have been getting a loud noise when switching from preset 01 on channel "A"? A: Please try a hard reset of your AX2/Axsys. Q: I am receiving a "lo batt" error message. What should I do? A: This message is an indication that the battery is not going to be with us much longer. We use lithium batteries in the AX2/Axsys in order to store the user presets, a common replacement is the Panasonic BR2325-1HG. The current battery will need to be de-soldered and replaced with a new battery. If you are not confident in doing this replacement, it should be performed by an authorized Line 6 Service Center. Q: I'm having a hard time getting my clean sounds really clean on my AxSys/AX2. Is there something that I can try? A: Always remember that there are many different places where you can increase or decrease gain on the AX2/AxSys. If you've chosen to increase it in all (or even most) of these places, you could be causing clipping after the TubeTone modeling. One of the most likely places for this to happen is in the Graphic EQ. A quick test is to turn the EQ off and see if your sound cleans up. If it does, move your whole EQ curve down so that your highest frequency boosts are no higher than +6. A general troubleshooting procedure to find where you might be getting unwanted clipping is to turn off all the effects, make sure that the sound is clean, then turn the effects back on, one at a time, checking for clipping after turning on each one. Q: I just upgraded to AX2 and my presets are changing radically every time I touch a knob. What's going on? A: The AX2 defaults to an 'immediate' editing mode in which the sound will instantly reflect the knob settings (i.e. when you change a knob, the sound changes immediately). You're used to the older 'capture' mode editing of the AxSys 212, where you had to move a knob to the position of its stored setting before you could change the setting. You can put the AX2 into the older editing mode by holding down the Main Row Edit Select button while powering up the amp. This setting is stored with the other Global settings, and you'll never have to think about it again unless you do a reset of the amp. (See page 2-2 of the manual) Q: I turned up the Delay/Reverb level in the Main Row, but I don't hear any reverb or delay? A: Make sure that the Delay and/or Reverb is turned on in the FX On/Off Edit Row or at the Floor Board. Still nothing? Remember that the individual Delay and Reverb Level controls in their respective Edit Rows have to be turned up as well. Q: The Axsys amplifier may make a crashing noise when switching between two presets that have Reverb or Delay on them? A: The Axsys amplifier may make a crashing noise when switching between two presets that have Reverb or Delay on them. The Axsys may also make a crashing noise when switching from a preset that uses the Acoustic Simulator to a preset that uses a non-Acoustic Simulator amp model with Reverb or Delay. There are several things that can be done to eliminate or minimize this noise. If the presets that are selected do not have any Reverb or Delay on them, the noise will be eliminated. It is possible to have Reverb or Delay pre-programmed into a preset but have the effects turned off. Then, after the preset has been selected using the EFFECTS ON/OFF foot switch function to activate the Reverb or Delay. This will eliminate switching noises at the time of the preset change. It is also possible to program the presets to minimize any noises that may occur during switching. The "SPRING" reverb model is the most likely to cause noises. Using another reverb model such as "DARK HALL" will lower the level of the noise. Maintaining a similar "reverb level" on the presets that are selected will also help to minimize this switching noise. There are three parameters that adjust the "reverb level" on the Axsys. The REVERB ON/OFF setting in the FX ON/OFF row, the REVERB LEVEL setting in the REVERB row and the REVERB/DELAY setting in the MAIN row. Q: Why is it that when the Axsys receives "MIDI program change messages", it will remain in the PRESET BANK or USER BANK it is set to at the time that the message is received? A: The Axsys will receive "MIDI program changes" via its MIDI IN jack and then follow with the preset changes outlined on page 10.4 of the Axsys owners manual. When the Axsys receives a "MIDI program change message" it will remain in the PRESET BANK or USER BANK it is set to at the time that the message is received. The Axsys will need to receive a "MIDI bank change message" in order to scroll to a different BANK. To toggle between the USER and PRESET BANKs, the user must press the USER/PRESET button on the front panel of the Axsys. Many MIDI foot controllers proceed their program change commands with bank change information. This is especially common in Roland controllers. This function will need to be defeated for these controllers to work properly with a Line6 product. Q: My amp seems to be malfunctioning and I have done the factory reset and checked the amp trouble shooting document. What can I do as an end user? Line 6 Amp Trouble Shooting Q: When I change to my acoustic simulator sound from a distortion I get a loud sound? A: That noise that you're hearing is the sound of the Reverb and/or Delay trailing off from the electric guitar amp model and being amplified by the acoustic model at the time you're making the switch. The acoustic models have a lot more gain applied to them than the electric models. This is done so that the level between the acoustic modeler and the electric modeler are more closely matched. To avoid that frying pan sound, you may need to compromise the Reverb and/or Delay on the electric sound; basically turn it off. You can either program the electric sound with no Reverb or Delay, or you can turn the Reverb and/or Delay off via the Floor Board a few seconds before you switch to the acoustic sound. You may have to experiment to see how long it takes for the Reverb/Delay to "finish" before it's safe to switch to acoustic. The "discharging" time will be different for different lengths of Reverbs and Delays. Q: Can I still get the AXSys/AX2 EPROM upgrade? A: No, as the AXsys/AX2 EPROM is no longer readily available on the commercial market. Q: Can I still get the AXSys/AX2 Line 6 cover? A: The offical Line 6 AXsys/AX2 cover is longer being produced, but you can get a cover from a third party at the following link: Cases And Covers Q: Where can I get replacement knobs/speakers/logos for my AxSys/AX2 amp? A: Please check the Line 6 Store. Q: Where can I download an AxSys/AX2 manual? A: Line 6 Manuals.
