  2. The BackTrack/BackTrack+Mic was designed to capture and replay any moment of "musical inspiration" without the need for recording preparation to flash memory by sensing audio signal levels. Records up to 12 hours of audio saved as .wav files to 1GB internal flash memory. General Features and Usability Tips Pressing the "Mark" button designates what you just played as special and separates it for easy review. "Force Capture" mode available for usage of BackTrack as a regular recording device for planned recordings. Audio sample rates of over 48KHz not supported (attempting to play a .wav file at a higher sample rate than this will most like cause incorrect playback behavior). Audio is transferable via USB 2.0 to your computer or recording software for further recording, editing or mixing. USB connection recharges the internal battery to its full capacity of over 8 hours via computer connection or universal USB charger (iPod, Blackberry chargers). No recording when unit is connected via USB to computer. Available in BackTrack (1/4" mono input only) and BackTrack+Mic (1/4" mono & built-in microphone) models. BackTrack does not have stereo/headphone out; only BackTrack+Mic model has stereo/headphone output. LED Color Explanations "Off" LED Status (USB Connection/Charging): Red = 0-25% charge Orange = 25-50% charge Yellow = 50-75% charge Green = 75-100% charge White = Full charge "On" LED Status Indicator Light (Normal Recording State): White = startup & shutdown (solid) or busy (blinking) states Blue = Auto Capture mode Ready to capture (flashing dark blue) Audio to be captured (solid dark blue) Audio that will continue to be captured (solid pale blue) End of captured event (blinking pale blue) Red = Forced Capture mode (solid red) End of forced capture (blinking red) Microphone clipping state (on units with microphone) while recording (flashes red during peak/spikes) Green = Playback mode Play Only mode (blinking green) Purple = Low Memory state 30 minutes remaining (single-blink) 15 minutes remaining (double-blink) Yellow = Low Battery state Less than 1 hour of operation left (occasional single-blink) Complete battery discharge (light fades from yellow to red; rapid flashing) BackTrack Setup Utility BackTrack Setup Utility software allows user to adjust and save capture volume settings and record playback settings. BackTrack Setup Utility requires Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or higher. Backtrack Hard Reset Procedure If your Backtrack appears frozen or if the LED lights are blinking in a series of colors then performing a hard reset should resolve this. To perform a hard reset you'll need to manually press a small object like a paper clip into the small hole on the side of the Backtrack. The hole is located on the opposite side of all the UI controls (Backtrack) or on the side opposite the microphone (Backtrack + Mic). Hold the button down for three seconds and then remove the paperclip. The LED on the device will glow white, blink a few times, and then begin blinking blue. You have now successfully reset your Backtrack. Known-Issues: Mac OSX users: stereo .wav files transferred off of Backtrack or Backtrack+Mic will freeze on playback attempt from host computer's audio application and the BackTrack will not record. OSX file system stores extra metadata in hidden "resource fork" files that have a prefix of ._ in front of the .wav file's name. BackTracks use a non-Mac file system, FAT32, that doesn't support resource forks. Deletion of those addition metadata files should allow for playback of the stereo .wav files. BackTrack will not record while connected to computers to recharge or to use the utility software. However, BackTrack WILL record if conencted to third party USB chargers.
  3. 2x12 and 4x12 are not showing up on PODxt series Q: My manual refers to output modes "4x12" and "2x12", or "VIBE", but I can't find them on my POD XT Live A: We decided to use more intuitive, user-friendly terms on the POD XT Live, but unfortunately the manual was not updated. Where the manual mentions "4x12" and "2x12", it is referring to "Stack mode" and "Combo mode", respectively, in the Pod XT's "What am I connected to?" mode. Each of these modes offer the option of connecting through the "Front" of the amp or the "Pwramp" (back) section of the amp. When using the "Front" option, tone correction options are made available to shape the overall PODxt output to sound good in front of a combo amp. The "What are you connecting to" page previously offered an option for "Live: Front of 2x12 Combo", which was basically a "2x12 power amp with speakers" setting with some additional filtering to compensate for the sound of your combo amp's preamp section. This setting was replaced by the VIBE setting, which split out the speaker configuration and the combo preamp compensation into two different adjustable parameters. Incidentally, the VIBE setting that mapped to the old "combo mode" setting is "MIDHVY - 480Hz" when used along with the "Live: 2x12" DEST setting. PODxt set to MONO Q: How can I set the Podxt to mono if I'm connecting the Podxt to a mono amp? A: You will have to set the Podxt to "Live" mode. To do this, select the tuner button, turn the select knob until you see "What are you connected to" page. Turn the "Effect Tweak" knob to "Live 4X12 or 2X12" or "Stack" or "Combo". This will alow the Podxt outputs to be mono. EX-1 control parameters on Podxt Q: I am having a problem getting my PODxt to allow me to control the effect parameters via the expression pedal on the FBV Shortboard. A: The EX-1 expression pedal will control some functions and this is how you get them to work. Press the "Edit" button then turn the "select" knob until you see the "wah | volume" page. On the volume side, select or highlight "Assign" with the third soft button located under the main display. Turn the "Effect Tweak" knob to change from volume to Tweak. In the updated PODxt, these parameters are changed on the page after the "wah/volume" page. By changing from volume to tweak you have engaged to EX-1 to control any function that comes under "tweak". To find out what's under the tweak selection, turn the "Select" knob to the next page where you will see "FX Tweak | tempo". on the FX tweak side you may scroll through the stomp tweaks, delay tweaks, mod tweaks etc. Make sure if you select say the delay time, the delay button light must be on and so with the other effects. PODxt three stomp with FBV Q: Can the PODxt actually play three stomp box sounds when conected to a FBV? Section 9-7 of the pilots handbook seems to indicate that. A: These buttons are for the Vetta series of amps. With the PodXt, the Stomp2 button controls Compression on/off and Stomp3 controls Gate On/Off. This is explained in the documentation that ships with the FBV. Connecting any POD unit to an amplifier POD Connections, Routing and the 4 Cable Method Amp bypassed on PODxt Q: How do I bypass the Amp Models? A: In preset mode turn the amp model knob counter clock wise to Bypass with all the effects buttons off, this will put the Podxt/Bass PODxt in bypass, then "save". You are really making a bypass channel or bypass preset. Q: If I set the PODxt to bypass the amp sounds, is the preamp of the PODxt bypassd, will I get the pure tone of my amp? A:Yes, you can also save your setup as a preset (no amp model, just effects). Can you adjust the S/PDIF or AES/EBU output volume level? Press the I/O & Dig Select button on the right hand side of the POD / Bass PODxt Pro. Then press the Soft Button below GAIN and spin the EFFECT TWEAK knob to add up to 12 db of gain on the digital outs. This is useful to help cut down on excessive use of normalization after recording in the digital domain. Pod XT Input specs: Q: What is A.I.R. II? A: A.I.R. II is Line 6's second generation Acoustically Integrated Recording technology. It expands your sonic choices and creative options by allowing you to choose a variety of microphone models and adjust their placement in front of the cabinet. Microphone choices and placement options include models based on Shure SM-57, Sennheiser MD-421 and a Neumann U-67 - on- and off-axis. Line 6, GuitarPort, POD and Vetta are trademarks of Line 6, Inc. All other product names are trademarks of their respective owners, which are in no way associated or affiliated with Line 6. These trademarks of other manufacturers are used solely to identify the products of those manufacturers whose tones and sounds were studied during Line 6's sound model development.
  4. Q: What is the warranty of the original POD and POD 2.0? A: The warranty of the original POD/POD 2.0 is twelve (12) months from the date of purchase when bought new from an authorized Line 6 dealer. Q: Where can I download a manual for the original POD/POD 2.0? A: Line 6 Manuals Note: If the pedal jack of your POD is labeled "pedal" than it is NOT compatible with our FBV line of foot controllers. If the pedal jack of your POD is labeled "FBV" then it WILL work with our FBV line of foot controllers. Q: Which foot controllers are compatible with the original POD/POD 2.0? A: The original PODs and POD 2.0s that are labeled 'Pedal' above the RJ45 pedal connection are compatible with the older Line 6 FB4 and the Line Floor Board. Those PODs that are labeled 'FBV' above the RJ45 pedal connection are compatible with the current FBV series of foot controllers. Q: Is it possible to upgrade my POD 1 to a Bass POD? A: Unfortunately, there is no upgrade path between the Pod and Bass Pod. Q: How do I upgrade or check the Firmware/EPROM version of my POD/POD 2.0/POD Pro? A: Firmware EPROMs are no longer available from Line 6. Please check out the EPROM Upgrade and F.A.Q. document for more information. SECONDARY FUNCTIONS Hold down the TAP TEMPO button and press MANUAL. This will "virtually latch" the TAP button in the depressed position so that you can access the secondary functions without holding down the TAP button. This leaves both hands free for playing the guitar and auditioning the changes. Press TAP again to deactivate it. Q: Does the POD have a MIDI through? A: The POD does not have midi thru, only midi in and midi out. Q: How do I connect my POD's MIDI In and Out to my computer? A: Please check out the Original POD Computer Connectivity document. Q: How do I record the audio signal of my POD 2.0 directly into my computer? A: In order to record the audio signal of your POD / POD 2.0 directly into your computer, you will first need the proper type of software that is capable of recording audio loaded into your computer. You will also need a sound card that has an audio input. If you have a Soundblaster type of card, you will need a cable that has two 1/4 inch mono plugs on one end and one 1/8 inch stereo plug. This cable can be found at most major music retailers. The two 1/4 inch mono jacks on this cable will need to be inserted into the POD's Left and Right Outputs and the other end of the cable should be inserted into the audio input of your computer's sound card. Make sure your sound card and audio software are configured to receive audio input and you should be ready to record. If you are using another type of soundcard, like a unit that has an external break out box, you can plug directly into that box using a regualr guitar cable of a balanced (TRS) cable. Be sure to check the documentation that came with the unit to configure it correctly. Q: Can the Pod Pro be used as a mic pre? A: The POD Pro does not have a XLR, balanced input which is what is needed for most low impedance microphones. Technically, you could use an impedance transformer to convert a low impedance mic line to high impedance or use a high impedance mic and then use the POD as a mic pre but you may not get the greatest, most noise-free results as the POD Pro was not really designed for this application. That said, you may try it out and find a sound that is quite interesting and useful so let your ears be your guide! Q: Is it possible to use the preset amp models with a different speaker cab model other than the pre set one? If so how do you do it? A: Just hold down the Tap Tempo button on POD while turning the Effects knob to switch cabinet models. You can view or download the owners manuals for all Line 6 products at our User Manuals Page. I noticed that when using POD without a MIDI editor on PC, you're not able to control your feedback on delay effect. POD version 1.4 (or earlier versions) will not store the delay feedback. This has been addressed in POD 2. Not only will 2.0 store delay feedback but you can also adjust it from the front of the POD. Please contact us directly for an EPROM upgrade of your POD. Q: How can I control the "Delay Level" on my POD when using the Delay in conjunction with another effect? A: When using the POD or POD Pro, the Delay Level and Delay Feedback can be adjusted by holding down the TAP TEMPO button and turning the MIDDLE knob for Delay Level and the BASS knob for Delay Feedback. Also, REVERB Decay can be adjusted by holding down TAP TEMPO and turning the REVERB knob. More information can be found in the EFFECTS section of the POD manual. How to correlate delay knob settings to Milliseconds Here is a chart that correlates Effect Tweak knob settings to delay time in ms. Please remember that these are estimates and you may need to move the knob a little to get the exact setting. Knob setting Milliseconds 0-75 1-76 2-100 3-146 4-225 5-350 6-625 7-850 8-1400 9-2600 Q: Did you create a pitch shift or harmonizer effect for thePOD PRO? If so, can I download it from your web site? A: No. There is no harmonizing/pitch shifter patch to download into the Pod Pro. Q: How do I install a new EPROM upgrade chip in the POD/POD 2.0? A: To install the Pod EPROM, take the four screws out of the back of the pod to expose the main PC board, it would be the largest chip on the board. Remove the chip with a flat screwdriver and replace with the new one. There is a notch on the socket on the PC board, line up the notch on the chip with the notch on the socket. NOTE: We no longer have any POD PRO EPROMS. You may be able to find a user on our forums or elsewhere online who has an extra chip that they would be willing to give you. Q: Why isn't POD 2.0 equipped with an XLR direct output jack? Instead you have equipped it with left and right 1/4" jacks, making it still necessary to use a DI box when running it directly into the snake/mixer when playing live. A:The POD's output jacks are TRS connectors. If you use standard mono cables, you will get -10, unbalanced signal. If you use TRS connectors, you will get +4 balanced signal. Q: What are the differences in features between all of the Firmware versions of the POD? POD Version 1.x differences from POD version 2.0 4 More amp models - line6 twang,crunch# 2, Blues, and insane. Can access all 32 amp models from the front panel - without midi. With Tap Tempo held down the following dials change: Drive - Distortion (on/off) Bass - Delay feedback Middle - Delay Level Treble - Presence boost (on/off) Channel Volume - Drive Boost (on/off) Reverb - Reverb Decay Effect Tweak - Tap Tempo Speed Amp Models - Other 16 amp models Effect - Cab Models [*]The Marshall off axis cab sim went away and was replaced with Marshall w/greenbacks. [*]Amp and effects customization feature was added: [*]Ability to store your favorite settings for amps and effects, so that next time you turn the dial, they are how you like them. Set an amp model how you like it (or effect). Hold down save and Tap Tempo (Manual, Tap Tempo, A, and B start to flash) Hit (A) to save the amp settings. And ( B) to save save the effects setting. Next time you move to that amp/effect it will be set how you like it. Does not work in manual mode. POD can be "tuned" to work with different amp setups Hold down SAVE while powering up Press UP and DOWN to select: A - POD feeding Power amp and closed back cab. B - POD feeding Power amp and open back cab C - POD in front of combo/head and open back cab D - POD in front of combo /head and closed back cab POD version 2.1 is different from 2.2: Latch mode was added. Hold down Tap Tempo and Manual at the same time for about 3 seconds. Tap tempo will flash slowly on older POD's. There is no visual indication of Latch mode on newer (v 2.54) FBV compatible PODs. [*]All dials act as if you are holding down Tap Tempo. [*]Press Tap Tempo one more time to disengage Latch Mode. [*]Delay spill-over was removed to allow latch mode. When you switch patches, your delay will not carry over, it turns off. POD version 2.2 is different from 2.3: Some amp models were slightly changed, most noticeably the Marshall sims. Some cab models were changed. Q: What is the difference between the original POD/POD 2.0 and the newer POD 2.0? A: The most obvious differrences are the display now have a different 3-digit LCD display and the POD is now labeled 'FBV' above the RJ45 connection to show compatibility with the FBV series foot controllers. These newer POD 2.0's are not compatible with the older FB4 or Line 6 Floor Board controllers. The newer POD 2.0 also has a different processor from the original and is not upgradeable via EPROM chip. Also, because of this new processor, the modeling of this POD 2.0 may sound slightly different that an original POD 2.0. Q: How do I bypass the amp models in the POD? A: Unfortunately, you cannot bypass the amp models in the POD. You can, however, set up some patches that sound as if there was no amp model being used. The most transparent model on the Pod is the "Tube Preamp" model. It is designed to be flat and uncolored, and does not have any cabinet modeling. Set your bass, mids, and treble to 12 o'clock for a "flat" setting. Q: What amps, cabs, and effects are included in the POD/POD Pro? A: Please review the cab models.pdf file below for reference. Q: How do I know what cab model I have connected to my amp? A: There are two cabinet setups in the POD 2.0: Cabinet Tuning: In cabinet select mode, simply hold the "TAP" button and turn the effect knob to scroll through different cabinet sounds. Cabinet Select: Your POD can be tuned for optimal performance with a variety of systems when the A.I.R. switch is set to its AMP position. By default, your POD expects be plugged in before an open-backed cabinet. If you want to plug into something else, you'll want to change the Cabinet Tuning Mode. To do this: Hold the Save button while powering up your POD. The POD's display will show a letter for one of the Cabinet Tuning Modes; press the Up and Down arrows to pick the mode, then press Save. Use Mode (A-D) when POD is (A-D) & your speaker cabs are (A-D) A feeding power amp closed back (ideal for 4x12 cab) B feeding power amp open back (ideal for 1x12 cab) C (default) in front of combo/head open back (ideal for 1x12 or 2x12 cab) D in front of combo/head closed back (ideal for 4x12 cab) Q: Is it possible to use a MIDI controller with my Line 6 device? A: All of the Line 6 products equipped with MIDI inputs and outputs can be controlled by another external MIDI device. The most commonly used are the Voodoo Labs Ground Control and the Behringer FCB 1010. Since you can not adjust the values on most Line 6 products that receive MIDI information, issues with communication are generally resolved by programming the sending unit correctly. Basically, the POD only knows that when you send it MIDI MESSAGE "A" it will do ACTION "A". Since this can not be changed in the POD (and most other Line 6 products) you need to make sure that your foot controller (or other controlling device) is sending MIDI MESSAGE "A" Please refer to the back of your Line 6 user manual for a list of all MIDI events pertaining to your product. For more on MIDI, check out this site: http://www.midi.org/ POD Input Levels Q: Will line level inputs into the POD destroy it? The manual says the POD is built for guitar level inputs, but can you run line level inputs from keyboards into the POD without messing it up? A: You won't destroy it, but the overall sound quality may leave something to be desired. You might want to try a buffer/direct box between your keyboard and the Pod to lower the level back down to instrument level settings. Tap Tempo Times Q: How do I set the TAP TEMPO button to a specific number? A: Remember that the tweak knob is an analog pot, so to get it exact, you may have to move it a little + or -. Refer to the Delay Time Settings chart below. Delay Level Adjustments Q: How can I control the "Delay Level" on my POD when using the Delay in conjunction with another effect? A: When using the POD or POD Pro, the Delay Level and Delay Feedback can be adjusted by holding down the TAP TEMPO button and turning the MIDDLE knob for Delay Level and the BASS knob for Delay Feedback. Also, REVERB Decay can be adjusted by holding down TAP TEMPO and turning the REVERB knob. More information can be found in the EFFECTS section of the POD manual. No Tuner Control via MIDI Q: Is there a way to use MIDI control to turn the tuner mode on and off? A: There is no MIDI sysex assignment of the tuner ON/OFF function. Switching Cab Models Q: Is it possible to use the preset amp models with a different speaker cab model other than the pre set one? If so how do you do it? A: Just hold down the Tap Tempo button on POD while turning the Effects knob to switch cabinet models. Delay Time Settings Q: How do I correlate delay knob settings to Milliseconds? A: Here is a chart that correlates Effect Tweak knob settings to delay time in ms. Please remember that these are estimates and you may need to move the knob a little to get the exact setting. Knob setting Milliseconds 0 75 1 76 2 100 3 146 4 225 5 350 6 625 7 850 8 1400 9 2600 10 3070 midigraphics.pdf cab models.pdf
  5. Q: How do I conenct the POD to my computer to record? A: In order to record the audio signal of your POD / POD 2.0 directly into your computer, you will first need the proper type of software that is capable of recording audio loaded into your computer. You will also need a sound card that has an audio input. If you have a Soundblaster type of card, you will need a cable that has two 1/4 inch mono plugs on one end and one 1/8 inch stereo plug. This cable can be found at most major music retailers. The two 1/4 inch mono jacks on this cable will need to be inserted into the POD's Left and Right Outputs and the other end of the cable should be inserted into the audio input of your computer's sound card.

If you are using another type of soundcard, like a unit that has an external break out box, you can plug directly into that box using a regular guitar cable of a balanced (TRS) cable. Be sure to check the documentation that came with the unit to configure it correctly. Q: How do I connect my POD to my computer via MIDI to edit tones with Line 6 Edit? A: In order to establish communication between your POD's MIDI In and Out and your computer, you will need a MIDI-USB Interface, such as the Roland UM-ONE or a MIDI interface, two standard MIDI cables and the cables necessary to connect the interface to your computer. If your computer is equipped with a Sound Blaster type MPU 401 sound card, you can simply use a Joystick Port to MIDI adapter cable. This cable will allow you to connect your POD's MIDI directly to your computers sound card and establish communication between your POD's MIDI and your computer. The cable should provide MIDI In and Out jacks on one end as well as a Joystick "Thru" connector on the other. The "Thru" connector will enable you to connect a game controller as well as the MIDI cable to your computer at the same time. Please be aware that some Windows computer systems have MIDI driver incompatibility issues that prohibit the use of the joystick port with MIDI products. These Windows machines will also need a MIDI interface.
  6. Q: If the Line 6 digital wireless systems can accommodate an active bass guitar, will I lose any low end? A: The Line 6 digital wireless system will work great with active and passive electronics. Line 6 digital wireless systems do not compand (compress then expand) the broadcast signal like analog systems do, so there is no loss of low end. Line 6 systems simply allow the instruments true signal (whether hot or mild) to pass through to the amp. The frequency range for Line 6 systems goes down to 10Hz, allowing for amazing lows when tuning down or using a bass with a low B string. Q: How do I connect to a “full frequency” output on my Line 6 digital wireless system? A: You can access full frequency output by connecting the receiver output cable to the first ring of the TRS output jack. Ideally, this would be done with a special cable (insert cables (a type of “Y” cable) are a great choice and have ¼ TRS on one end and two separate ¼ mono cables on the other end). This also allows you to split the signal by connecting your receiver to two different signal paths (a great way to get a “tuner out” feed or go to a separate amplifier, recording device or mixer). In a pinch, you can access the ring output by plugging a mono ¼” cable half way in though we don’t recommend this for performance applications due to the cable not being fully engaged into the jack socket. Q: Why isn’t “full frequency” the default output choice? A: A standard ¼” instrument cable gently rolls off the high frequencies around 8 KHz. This is due to the capacitance of the wire and is a scenario that most musicians have grown used to. As the criteria for Line 6 digital wireless is to simply replace the cable, we chose to mimic the performance of a direct wire connection. Since we eliminate several feet of cable (and its associated capacitance), the net result was a system that performed exactly as if a musician was plugged in with a three foot patch cord, resulting in a noticeably clearer and brighter high frequency response. In order to not turn off musicians with increased high frequency response, we added the capacitance back into the signal path so that the end result was “cable gone – sound identical”. However, we really loved the increased high frequency response. Why? 1. More clarity and articulation (the reason for new strings when we record or gig, right?) 2. Phase coherency: If you boost the highs on your amp (or FX devices) you are actually adding a complex phase shift to your signal. With the Line 6 digital wireless system, you get more clarity with complete phase coherency (no phase shifting) and this really makes a big difference. 3. No boost in hiss or noise floor: Again, when you increase the highs on your amp (or FX devices), you also get an increase in hiss and noise. With the Line 6 digital wireless system, you get all of the clarity for free, meaning that there is no increase in hiss and noise (and again, no phase shift). Full bandwidth is available full time on the XLR output (as it should). Q: Would this work with a lav or headset microphone for videographer applications? A: Technically, yes. However, the frequency response of the receiver is tailored to musical instruments (10Hz – 12 KHz in full-bandwidth mode) meaning that for microphone applications, there may not be enough high frequency content when using the portable XDR1 stompbox receiver. Additionally, to access the full-bandwidth, the operator will need to utilize an insert cable (TRS to dual ¼ mono) or custom wired cable that connects the first ring of a TRS cable to the input of the next component/camera. Q: Can my XDT1/XDT4 transmitter provide phantom power to my condenser mic? A: Only the XDT4 transmitter can provide phantom power to a condenser microphone. It provides ~9v bias voltage at the tip for use with lavaliere microphones. Q: Can I connect the XLR output of my XDR4 Receiver into a mixing board with global phantom power? A: Yes, there is a resistor to protect the XDR4 Receiver from being damaged by phantom power voltage, but it is not guaranteed. Some older mixing boards from the 70's could in theory overwhelm the device depending on just how much phantom power is supplied. Q: Can I use multiple receivers with the same transmitter? A: Yes, as long as the receivers are set to the same channel and mode that the transmitter is set to. Q: Can I use multiple transmitters with the same receiver? A: You cannot use multiple transmitters AT THE SAME TIME with the same receiver as that could cause interference with each other. You can use more than one transmitter with a receiver, but only one transmitter can be powered on at a time. - Do keep the antenna clear of obstructions as much as possible - Do keep line-of-sight for maximum range - Don’t place operating transmitters near the receivers (within 3 – 5 feet). This will potentially overload the internal RF amplifiers of the receiver units and cause limited range. Practical Operating Tips For multiple users, Do consider the best placement of receivers for optimal performance. Avoid having one performer with a bodypack transmitter “ON” stand in front of a rack of receivers. This will limit the overall operating range of the furthest performer(s). One example might be a rack of receivers at the monitor position and performers often stand right next to the rack of receivers. This can become an issue the more channels you are operating. Quite often, one of the artists is also the sound person. Rather, place the receivers at a location that allows the freedom of artist/engineer movement without having “ON” transmitters get within 3-5 feet. Operating Modes It is important to have the components operating in XDR mode for optimum performance. XDR mode is the proprietary “anti-jamming” RF mode that utilizes a dual digital broadcast. To confirm that the XDR4 rackmount receiver is in XDR mode, make certain that the “MODE” LED is glowing green. If it is not, power off the receiver and power it back on while holding the “CHANNEL DOWN” button. The XDT4 transmitter should also be in XDR mode. This can be confirmed by powering on the transmitter and watching the LED power on sequence. If all LEDs glow BLUE and then a single RED LED moves through in a LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT pattern settling into Battery/Channel mode then you are certain that this transmitter is in XDR mode. If the LEDs glow BLUE and then expand out from the center LED (BLUE then RED) before settling into Battery/Channel mode then this transmitter is in XDS mode. To change modes on the transmitter, power off the unit and power it on while holding the “CHANNEL” button. Monitor the LED sequence to confirm mode. Another simple way to confirm transmitter operating mode is to monitor the color of the LEDs when audio signal is present. If the LEDs display audio in BLUE you can be certain that the transmitter is in XDR mode. If however, the audio display is in RED then you will need to change to mode. XDR mode works incredibly well. If your systems are operating in XDS mode then you will enjoy a great enhancement of overall system performance by switching back to the XDR mode. Q: What is the maximum AC signal input voltage that the transmitter can handle? A: It will accommodate a very large signal (about 6V peak to peak) without any clipping. We have had users with active pickups using (2) 9V batteries with no problems. The dual 9V's usually allow the circuitry for the pickup to operate without degradation while the batteries discharge. It is not actually outputting 9V it is more like +-5V peak at most. Otherwise the unit would distort as the battery dies.

  9. Q: What is the XPS Unit? A: The XPS unit is the power supply that powers the Variax instrument via 1/4" TRS cable. The Line 6 XPS box must be powered by a Line 6 PX-2 power supply for correct operation. There are three variations of the XPS: XPS-AB: This units acts as both a Variax power supply and has an A/B footswitch to send the guitar output to either a 1/4" or XLR output. Use a standard XLR (microphone) cable to connect the XPS-AB’s XLR output to feed any balanced input. Use a TRS (Tip-Ring-Sleeve/Stereo) cable to connect your Variax to the INPUT jack of the XPS-AB, a standard mono instrument cable to connect the 1/4" output of the XPS to any standard amp rig. XPS-Mini: This unit ships with the Variax 300 series, and has an 1/4" input and output. XPS-DI: This unit shipped with the Variax Bass Instruments and had an line/mic level switch, as well as an XLR ground lift option. The XPS-DI uses a standard XLR (microphone) cable to connect the XPS-DI output to feed any balanced input. Use a TRS (Tip-Ring-Sleeve/Stereo) cable to connect your Variax to the INPUT jack of the XPS-DI, and a standard mono instrument cable to connect the 1/4" output of the XPS-DI to any standard amp rig. Note: This unit is no longer available as the Variax bass has been discontinued. Usage F.A.Q.s Q: Can I use the XPS-AB as a replacement for my XPS-DI? A: Yes, the XPS-AB is the direct replacement for the XPS-DI. Q: Can I use the XPS-mini if I do not have access to the XPS-AB box? A: Yes, the XPS-Mini can be used in place of the XPS-AB box. Be aware that the XPS-mini is the only supported power supply for the Variax 300 series instrument, due to a slight increase in the power requirements for the 300 series. Q: Will the XPS-DI recharge batteries in Variax Instruments? A: No. Q: What type of cable do I need to use to connect the XPS unit to my Variax Instrument? A: You will need to use the supplied 1/4" TRS cable (or equivalent) to connect your XPS box to your Variax instrument to deliver power. Any mono 1/4" cable will work if you are using the internal batteries for power, but the power will be drawn from the batteries rather than from the cable. Q: Can I use the XLR and 1/4" outputs simultaneously? A: No the XLR and 1/4" outputs can only be used separately. Q: Does the Footswitch provide phantom power to another device? A: No, the A/B footswitch for your Variax will not provide phantom power. Q: Can I plug my regular electric instrument into the XPS box? A: Yes, if using a standard mono guitar cable, you can plug your regular electric instrument into the XPS box without damaging your guitar. We do not advise the use of a TRS cable with anything but a Variax because of the power it carries back to the guitar from the XPS box. Also, we do not recommend using an XPS box with active guitars. The combination of voltage potentially feeding back into the guitar, and how the guitar is wired, which can vary, can potentially damage the guitar and/or the XPS box. Q: What is the length of the Variax digital cable? A: The Variax digital cable is 25 feet long. Troubleshooting F.A.Q.s Q: There is no audio signal and I am only seeing a "red" power light on the XPS A/B (DI) when connected to the Variax guitar using a TRS cable? A: If the XPS-AB/DI has the proper power connected (and is connected to the Variax) and is showing a "red" power light, this means that the XPS is not recognizing the Variax and not sending power. If a different TRS 1/4" cable does not resolve the problem, try a different XPS box to see if there is a problem with the XPS box. If a different 1/4" cable and XPS box does not solve the problem, the Variax may have an internal failure that will need to be resolved by an authorized service center. Q: I am getting a "popping" sound when changing between the XLR and 1/4" outputs when connecting to a PA system? A: This situation can happen when the mixer has phantom power applied to the channel that the XPS input. One solution is to turn off the phantom power on that channel, another solution is to put another DI between the XPS and sound board. Some end users with switch to using the different (compatible) Line 6 device. Q: My XPS Box is damaged/lost. How can I get a replacement? A: The XPS box can be special ordered from your favorite Line 6 dealer: Line 6 Dealer Locator
  10. Parts Q: My X2 cable is lost/damaged. Where can I purchase a replacement? Line 6 Store: X2 Replacement Cable Q: I lost/broke an antenna on my X2 wireless receiver. How can I get a replacement? A:The X2 series uses a 900 mhz, ½ wave-BNC antenna. These antenna can be purchased from numerous audio-video or musical instrument retailers. Q: Why is my signal occasionally cutting out? A: Please check to see that your locking cable connector is screwed in tightly to the input jack on the transmitter. If not, this can cause your unit to either not get audio at all or cause the signal to cut in and out. Please see our updated manual on this website for a detailed diagram of the proper connection process. Troubleshooting The XDR4 rackmount receiver has an “RF” LED indicator on the front panel. With all transmitters powered “OFF”, scroll through the 5 channels on the receiver while viewing the “RF” LED. If this LED remains dark, then you can conclude that there is no undesired RF at your current location. If it lights RED, then there is RF on that channel. This typically does not lead to the conclusion that you cannot operate on that channel. It does indicate that there is RF present and that the range might be limited on that channel. “Drop outs” are often the cause of a bad audio connection. This can happen when the input jack is not fastened securely or when the input cable has broken down at the connector. You can visually confirm a solid “digital link” even without an audio input by powering on only one transmitter and receiver and monitor the 4 green “RECEIVER” LEDs on the XDR4 rackmount receiver. As long as one single green LED stays lit, then you have a solid link. I would confidently say that the system is working well if all 4 LEDs stay lit no matter where you go out to at least 100’ with little or no “dancing”. When they start to consistently dance you are approaching the outer edge of the operating range. This test is best performed with two people. Q: Power is on but no signal or there is an intermittent signal with sound cutting out with the XDS95, XDR95 or XDSPlus transmitter A: How far away from each other are the transmitter and receiver? You may simply just need to return to operational range. If the issue persists, you will need to replace the XC1 cable. Q: Power is on but no signal is getting to XDR95, XDS95, or XDSPlus Receiver. A: Remember to set the receiver to the correct mode and to set both the transmitter and receiver to the same channel. If you continue to have issues, replace the XC1 cable. Q: My XDS95 receiver / transmitter shuts down shortly after powering up A: If you are using batteries, try using a new set of batteries. If you are using rechargeable batteries, try a fresh set of alkaline batteries. If these issues persist, the XDS95 needs to be serviced. Q: My transmitter suddenly started producing a distorted broken up signal A: Replacing the XC1 cable would be the first thing to try, but if that does not fix the issue, the transmitter must be serviced for repair. Q: I have a buzzing noise on all channels of my receiver. A: First, make sure that the receiver is getting the proper amount of power from a compatible power supply, especially if the power is being shared with other devices. If you have active electronics on your guitar, make sure that the batteries in the guitar are fresh and power the guitar. If not, replace the batteries. Check your guitar jack to see if it is loose or shorting out and fix the jack as needed. Lastly, please remove/turn off any sources of magnetism (such as a computer monitor) that is close to the transmitter as this could be producing the noise in the signal. Q: I can only go 25 to 30 ft with my XDS95 before it drops out? A: If there is another transmitter on and set to the same channel nearby, then you would need to change the channel on the second transmitter. If there is another source of RF between your transmitter and the receiver, then you would need to move the source of RF. As a last resort, you can open up the back of your receiver and you should see 2 thick black wires soldered onto the antennas. If these wires are not soldered properly, the receiver needs to be serviced for repair. The following is a list of symptoms in which your Digital Wireless device must be serviced for repair: Symptom: I hear a "click" every once in a while when my XDS95 system is on but I am not playing? Symptom: One of the green receiving section lights does not come on even when the XDR95 transmitter is right next to the receiver. Symptom: When I power up my unit, all the lights stay on (Red or Blue) and then I cannot turn the unit off. Symptom: My XDT1/XDT4 transmitter burns up a fresh battery in 1 hour. Symptom: My XDS95 receiver does not power up with a 9v battery but it will power up on a power cord adapter. Symptom: My X2 transmitter does not power up with a 9v battery.
  11. Q: How much battery life should I expect with my XDR95 transmitter? A: During our in-house testing of alkaline battery performance, Kirkland, Energizer and Ray-O-Vac brands showed the best results. There are various test results available online that confirm this information. You should also be aware that there are black-market knock-offs out there that look “real” but fall short of the original manufacturer’s specifications. Line 6 digital wireless products now include Energizer batteries as others have not been performing up to spec. That being said, you should expect the battery life in the XDT4 to be between 5.5 and 6.5 Hours. Digital wireless technology has its own set of power demands, but as we develop products, we keep in mind the need for power efficiency. There is a big difference between 10 hours and 5 hours, but please remember the sound quality and benefits of the Line 6 digital system when compared to analog wireless. Q: Is the battery used in the receiver of the XDS95 overridden when using the AC adaptor input? A: In the current design, the battery is not overridden. What this means, is that if you plug in a power adapter to the XDS95 while there are working batteries in the receiver, the battery life will be drained in that configuration. Just make sure to remove the batteries if you are using a power adapter with the receiver. Q: Can I use rechargeable batteries with my Line 6 digital wireless system? A: Yes, but the specs on rechargeable batteries is all over the map and changes every time a battery is charged and discharged. In order to create and offer consistency, we have designed Line 6 digital wireless products to be used with standard 9V alkaline batteries. This way, we can predict and report battery life remaining with accuracy and translate that data to the battery meters that are included on Line 6 digital wireless components. Our knowledge of how consistently rechargeable batteries will work with the Line 6 digital wireless systems is limited. The rule of thumb is: As the battery remains above 6.2 V, it will continue to function. You may want to contact the battery manufacturer for further details. Q: What power supply should I use for the XDS-95 system? A: The Line 6 DC-1/DC1-G power supply will correctly power the XDS-95 system. Q: What power supply should I use for the XDS-plus or XDR95 system? A: the Condor 500ma power supply (supplied with the unit) or Line 6 DC1-G will power either the XDR Plus or XDR95 systems. Q: Where can I find more information on the power supply requirements and purchase a replacement/spare power supply? Power Supply, Amp Power and Battery F.A.Q. Q: Will my XDR95, XDS95 and XDSPlus work with 230/240 volt power? A: Yes, as long as the power transformer converts to 9V 500mA (For XDR95 & XDSPlus) and 9V 100mA (for XDS95) it will work. Our non-U.S. distributors sell 230V to 9V 500mA transformers. Q: I have a pedal board that distributes power to all my pedals. Can my XDS95 receiver share power with devices? A: Yes. Your XDS95 receiver only requires 9V 100mA, but the device will draw only what it needs. On pedal boards that share power with multiple devices, a device may not always get all the power that it needs. If power is being shared with other devices and you start experiencing any issues, dedicate power to the XDS95 and see if the issue goes away.
  12. Q: Are the XLR outputs of the LD series line level? A: Yes, the XLR outputs on all of our Lowdown amps are balanced line level outputs. The line level output 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 in addition to the cabinet simulated tone you will want to go into a DI box and send the DI signal to the mixing console, and have the instrument output of the DI go into the instrument input of the Lowdown amplifier. Q: What controllers work with the Lowdown series? A:The FBV series is the correct controller for the Lowdown series, we recommend the FBV Shortboard or FBV Express. The FBV (Longboard) is not optimized for use with the Lowdown family of amplifiers, and the FBV2 is not compatible with a certain amount of early LowDowns. Please contact Line 6 Customer Support in this case for assistance.

  15. Q: Will the Stompbox Modelers work with other instruments besides guitar? Yes, the Stomp Box Modelers will work with just about any "instrument level" device including bass guitar. Q: How can I reset my DL4 to the factory presets? A: You can reset your pedal to the factory settings by powering it up with the A and D footswitches held down - the power is turned on and off on the modeler pedals by inserting a plug into the left mono input jack. Q: How can I set up my DL4 in an effects chain? What kind of power supply does the DL4 require? A: For information on setting up your DL4 in an effects chain or power supply information, please click here. Q: Does the DL4 have reverb? A: The DL4 delay Modeler does not have reverb. It has 15 different delay models and a loop sampler. Q: What are some features and functions of the looper? A: The DL4 Loop Sampler function operates at 14 seconds to summed mono outputs at regular speed, and 28 seconds at half speed. A loop sampled and played at normal speed, then switched to half speed, will drop the pitch an octave. A loop sampled and played at half speed will play back at normal pitch. If the speed is then returned to normal, the pitch will be raised an octave. When the DL4 is in 1/2 speed mode, the sampling rate and consequently the bandwidth have been halfed. This shouldn't be very noticeable though as this halfed bandwidth is still wider than most standard electric guitar amps. If you were using the unit with a very clean, bright electric guitar (or acoustic guitar)and monitoring through studio monitors, you may notice the change in bandwidth. While in "Loop Sampler" mode, the DL4 will receive signal through each of its two inputs simultaneously. The input signal will then be summed to mono, sampled and then sent to the two outputs. In order to sample both inputs separately (or in stereo), the unit would have required two separate sample processors and a lot more RAM. Needless to say, this would have increased the cost of the unit dramatically. All other DL4 "Delay Models" will however have a discrete left and right stereo output. Q: How can I use an EX-1 Expression pedal with my DL4? A: For information on using an EX-1 expression pedal with the DL4, please click here. Q: How is the Expression pedal implemented in the loop/sampler portion of the DL4? Can you adjust the feedback level of the loop (so loops start to fade), or just the mix of loop in the output signal? A: The expression pedal works the same way in the Loop Sampler mode as it does in the regular delay mode. You can set the toe-down position of the pedal to one setting of the knobs (excluding the model selector knob) and the heel-down position to another setting. For example you could have the toe-down position set for the loop mix (mix knob) at maximum, the delay level (tweez) at medium, the delay modulation (tweak)at minimum, the delay repeats at half-way, and the delay time set fast (say 3 o'clock). You could then put the pedal in the heel-down position and set the knobs for the loop level at minimum, the delay level at maximum, the modulation at minimum, the repeats at minimum and the delay time long (say 9 o'clock). Now when you're playing (and the play/stop button is switched on), putting the pedal in the toe down position will give you the loop at full volume, pre-loop delay that is of medium volume volume with no modulation and a fast time. When you switch to heel-down, you'd get no loop (even with the play/stop button switched on)with a long single delay that is very loud. Yes it will remember your settings after you turn the DL4 off. The loop sampler can either play the loop indefinitely (until you hit the stop button)or play it one time only then stop (Button C). It will not trail off on it's own. You would have to use the expression pedal to ride it's level. Q: On the stomp-box modelers, how do I turn on the alternate (delay trails) bypass and what does it do? A: Alternate Bypass will allow the delay to remain in the signal (fade off into the distance) when the pedal is turned off, where True Bypass will stop the delay as soon as the pedal is turned off. Alternate bypass mode should prevent any drop in volume level when the pedal is engaged. In addition, it will not cut off delay trails in a long delay setting. To switch between true bypass and alternate bypass mode, you will need to hold down the a and c buttons at the same time for at least three seconds while inserting the left mono input(which will turn on the unit) to initialize alternate bypass. It will remember the selected bypass mode. Since it's a simple toggle, if you want to switch back, just repeat the process. Q: I'm having a hard time getting my bass loops to sync up with my drum tracks. It almost sounds as though the bass loops are slowing down. Is that possible? Or are there some tricks to getting the loops right on the money? A: What you are experiencing is caused by the fact that it is very difficult to record a perfectly timed loop. Even if the original loop is off by the slightest amount of time, that time will be compounded with every repeat of the loop. Example: if the end of the loop is 1ms off, after 10 loops the guitar parts are now 10ms faster or slower than the drum parts. After 15 loops it will have a 15ms difference etc...You may need to re-sample the loop if after using it 6-8 times it doesn't match perfectly. With practice, you will get the feel of the correctly timed loop. Q: Can I make the sampled loop louder without overpowering my guitar? A: While in the LOOP SAMPLER mode, a simple turn of the MIX knob should enable you to control the level of the initial loops. Also, using the DL4 with a Line 6 EX-1 Expression Pedal will enable you to "morph" between two different MIX settings on the fly, from the floor, in real time. Simply place the EX-1 in the "heel down" position and program the pedal to your first desired setting. Next, put the EX-1 in the toe down position and program your second desired setting. Now, move the pedal back and forth and morph away baby! More information on the DL4 can be found at our Stomp Box Modelers product page. Q: What is the "suppressed carrier" frequency of the ring modulator patch? Is it fixed, or does it change with the variable waveform control (tweak or tweez)? A: It is variable and controlled via the tweak knob. 0 = sine, 10 = square wave. Q: How do I get the "Alvin Lee" dotted eighth note rhythm or "U2/Edge" delay from the DL4 pedal? A: The Alvin Lee Dotted Eighth Note Rhythm: The "Alvin Lee" sound is a single slap-back repeat. To set it up: 1. Tap the dotted eighth rhythm into the Digital Delay model. 2. Set Repeats, Tweak and Tweez to zero and the mix to 1:00. It may seem difficult to tap that rhythm in with your foot, but with a little practice, it becomes pretty easy. There is no preset delay value of a dotted eighth rhythm in the Rhythmic Delay model. The "U2 / Edge" Delay: The "U2/Edge" sound has 1.5 to 2 repeats on each of the stereo delays. To set this up: 1. Set the delay model to stereo delay and the unit automatically defaults to the "U2" sound. The Edge delay is actually a dotted eighth rhythm on the left side and a quarter note rhythm on the right side. The way to adjust the delay to this sound is to set the delay time to 11:00, repeats to 7:30, Tweak to 11:30, Tweez to 7:30 and mix to 1:00. If you want the tempo to be faster, just move the Delay Time and Tweak knobs a little counter-clockwise. You will have to make adjustments by ear to get that perfect "dotted eighth and quarter note" sound. The default Tap Tempo rhythm for the models is a quarter note. It is not possible to change this default rhythm. The only solution would be to save the presets with a different rhythm. This would allow for six presets if you used the optional expression pedal.

  17. Applications Q: What are the presets on the Lowdown Studio 110 and LD 15 amplifier? A: The Studio 110 and LD 15 have four savable channels directly on the amplifier, which are Clean (Eden model), R&B (Ampeg B15 fliptop model), Rock (Ampeg SVT model), and Grind (Sansamp model). The Studio 110 also has a “synth” option, accessed by pressing the R&B and Rock models simultaneously. The LD15 has a hidden “Brit model” which is accessed by pressing/holding the Clean and R&B model buttons as your turn on the power. The Clean and R&B lights will flash back and forth to indicate that you have changed the Clean model into the Brit model. Q: Is there a list for suggested settings for the LD Studio110 or LD15 amplifier? A: No, there is no preset list for the LD 110 or LD15, but you can download the dowdown Preset Chart from the manuals section and experiment with the settings (taking note that there is no amp model or channel volume control) Lowdown Presets 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. Lowdown Movies Q: Is there an editing software that works with the Lowdown amplifier? A: No, there is no 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" for a LD Studio110 or LD15 like on the other LD series amplifiers? A: No, there is no manual mode for the LD Studio110 for the LD15. 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 110 or LD 15 amplifier? A: Yes, there are balanced line level XLR and unbalanced 1/4" outputs on the Lowdown 110, both of which output processed tone. The LD-15 has an unbalanced ¼” output which will output processed tone (which doubles as a headphone output). The XLR output of the Studio 110 is not affected by the output volume of the amplifier, and will send a cabinet simulated tone to your mixing console. The unbalanced ¼” output of the Studio 110 and LD15 is affected by the master volume setting, so keep this in mind when using this as a direct recording connection. Q: What if I do not want the cabinet tone but rather a unaffected tone (like a DI Box to go to the PA?) A: If you desire an unaffected bass tone in addition to the cabinet simulated tone, you will want to go into a DI box and send the DI signal to the mixing console. Be sure to have the instrument output of the DI go into the instrument input of the Lowdown amplifier to get sound from the Lowdown. Q: Can I use a Line 6 controller with the Lowdown Studio 110 or the LD15? A: No, there is no CAT-5 jack on the Studio 110 or the LD15 for a Line 6 controller. Q: Does the Lowdown Studio 110 or the LD15 have an effects loop? A: No, neither the Lowdown Studio 110 or the LD15 has an effects loop. Q: Can I connect an external pre-amp (i.e. Line 6 POD unit) to the Lowdown Studio 110 or the LD15? 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: Can I connect an external cabinet to a Lowdown Studio 110 or the LD15? A: No, there are no external speaker connections on the Lowdown combo series Studio 110 or the LD15 Specifications Q: What's the rated wattage output and speaker size of the Lowdown Studio 110 and the LD15?? LD15: 15 watts/ (1) 8” speaker Studio 110: 75 watts/ (1) 10” speaker Registration and Warranty Information Q: What is the warranty on the Lowdown Series? A: the warranty on the Lowdown series is twelve months from the date of purchase. Q: How do I register the Lowdown? http://line6.com/account/registergear/ Troubleshooting/Service Q: How do I perform a factory reset on the Lowdown? A: The reset procedure for a Lowdown amplifier is to hold the Clean button for 5 seconds while powering the amp. Q: My amp seems to be malfunctioning. What can I do as an end user? Line 6 Amp Trouble Shooting Q: I am noticing hiss in the headphones with the Lowdown Studio 110? A: This may not be an issue on all Lowdown Studio 110 amplifiers. Depending on what brand of headphones you are using, as well as what amp model/settings are up, you may or may not hear hiss. Individual preference will determine if the perceived signal/noise ratio is acceptable. Please DO NOT return your Lowdown Studio 110 for a replacement unit if you feel that this is an issue. Our service centers would be happy to fix this issue for you. Keep in mind; this fix requires that one of our technicians perform a custom modification to the headphone amplifier, which requires that we open up your amp. The reason that some users may hear hiss is due to the gain structure design of this amp and a couple of surface mount resisters need to be replaced. Customer Support is unable to guide you through the repair and only our authorized service centers can take care of this fix. NOTE: If a customer opens up their amp and attempts to alter their electronics in any way, they will void your manufacturer’s warranty on their Lowdown Studio 110. Also, keep in mind that the repair may take several weeks based on the specific service center’s turn around time. If the nearest service center is too far from your location, and you need to ship your unit to that service center, Line 6 WILL NOT cover the associated shipping costs If you are aware of the above information and you still wish to have your amp repaired, Line 6 will cover the costs of parts and labor. Please have your receipt ready before you contact a service center. If you cannot find your receipt, please talk to the dealer where the amp was purchased, and request a duplicate receipt.

  18. Tonecore Pedals You can set up any of the Line 6 Tonecore pedals the same way that you would any other stomp box. Plug your guitar into the input of the pedal and plug the output of the pedal into the next step in your chain, whether it be another pedal or an amp. If you are using many pedals, you may need to arrange the order to get the best sound, especially if you have boutique pedals with very high output or stereo effect pedals that require a stereo input/output (please see the information below regarding common effect chain setups). Once you have your pedal(s) setup, give it some power either from the Line 6 DC-1 adapter or a 9 volt battery, stomp on it to turn it on, and ROCK OUT!!! Note: All Line 6 Tonecore pedals are designed for instrument level input, but have no problem being placed between the guitar and the amplifier or in an amplifier's effect loop. Q: Are the ToneCore pedals "True Bypass" when I disengage the effect? A: No, the Tonecore pedal will still have the audio signal running through the processor, but you will not hear the effect. Common Effect Chain Order: Pedals are often set up in the following categories from the guitar input to the amp: Dynamic control: Constrictor (compressor) Filter control: Otto Filter, FM-4 Overdrive/Distortion: Crunchtone, Dr. Distorto, Uber Metal, DM-4 Modulation: Liqua-Flange (Flanger), Space Chorus, Tap Tremolo, Roto Machine, MM-4 Time based: Echo Park (Delay), DL-4, Verbzilla (Reverb) Please remember that this is only a guide, and many players will vary this setup order depending on personal preferences. You can find more information on effect pedal chains at http://www.harmonycentral.com/articles. Other tips for getting a better tone: - Use the highest quality cables you can afford - Use the shortest cable lengths possible between units - Confirm that all of your power needs are coming from the same source (to avoid ground loops) Q: Is there any way to combine sounds on a Line 6 Stompbox or Tonecore? For example, what if I want some chorus and tremolo at the same time? A: The Line 6 pedals are designed to play a single effect model at a time. Due to the high processing demands of modulation circuits, having the option of using more than one of the effects at time would have compromised the processing power dedicated to each effect and would have resulted in lower quality sound. Q: How can I do a factory reset on my Stomp Box Modeling Pedal? A: Have the power supply connected and press & hold A & D ('Tap' on the DL-4) button while plugging in your guitar to the left mono input. Q: Are the Four-Button Stomp Box Modeling pedals True Bypass" when I disengage the effect? A: The Four-Button Stomp Box Modeling pedals are "true bypass", meaning that the audio signal is sent directly from the input jack to the output jack. You can disable the "True Bypass" by holding the first and the third buttons (from the left) when powering the unit (inputing instrument cable into the left Mono input) to hear the effect after the effect is disengaged (i.e. trailing delays). Q: When I activate a channel on my Stompbox Modeler, I get the same sound no matter which model I have selected on the dial. A: Line 6 Stompbox Modelers use a combination of "live" controls and stored settings so it can be a little confusing a first. When you press one of the preset buttons, you are recalling the stored sound saved in that location regardless of where the model select knob is positioned. When you rotate the model select knob, you switch to that model and the associated control positions for it are recalled. The rest of the controls become active as you adjust them. Once you have a sound you like be sure to save it to one of the channels because once you switch to another channel, it's gone. Q: I am noticing a volume boost/loss when I engage my Four button modeling pedal. Why is this? A: The "True Bypass" mode will not have any noticeable effect on the signal path, so there will be very little change in overall volume when the pedal is disengaged. If the pedal is engaged at all time (i.e. allowing trailing delays) you may notice a slight increase in volume as the pedal is always active. These type of volume effects can be minimized by using the previous tone tips recommended and/or using a looping system (i.e. Voodoo Lab's Pedal Switcher or GCX) for larger pedal configurations. Q: How should I power my Line 6 Pedals? A: We recommend using the Line 6 DC-1 for the Tonecore pedals, PX-2 AC Power Supply for the 4-button stompboxes, or the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power units for powering pedals. The Pedal Power 2 Plus can power up to 6 Tonecore pedals and two Modeling pedals at once, and the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power AC can power up to 4 Modeling pedals. Other power supplies may not deliver consistent voltage and are not supported by Line 6. Q: What are the specifications for Line 6 power supplies? A: Power Supply F.A.Q. Q: Can I run my Line 6 Modelling pedal in a parallel or series FX loop? A: Line 6 does not support the use of any Line 6 Four Button modeling pedal in an effect loop as the Line 6 Modeling pedals are designed for instrument level (guitar/bass output) to be inserted between the instrument and the amplifier. The signal strength of a line level signal (i.e. an effect loop) can cause the input buffers to fail. Q: What if I have a level control on my FX Loop? A: It is up to the player to determine how to set the effect loop level according to personal taste, but Line 6 does not recommend placing any Line 6 Four Button modeling pedal in an effect loop. The send would need to be reduced to approximate a guitar level signal (i.e., -22db, 1.5v pp max, etc). The problem with this is that you rely on the modeling pedal for make up gain, which if you tailored the input would result in higher noise floor. If a loop is the only desirable way to connect a Line 6 Modeling pedal, you will need a -22db pad on the front end and a +20db buffer on the output to make up the gain. Q: Can I run a tuner out of an unused output of a Line 6 pedal? A: There is no technical reason why this would not work, although some users have noticed noise in their system when this is done. Q: Are the Stompbox Modelers MIDI compatible? Are they able to exchange patches and/or other information with the POD and other Line 6 products? A: In order for two digital devices to communicate with one another, i.e. exchange patches and/or other MIDI information, they must both have MIDI In and Out capabilities. The "Stomp Box Modelers" do not feature MIDI compatibility; thus they are unable to communicate with other MIDI devices.
  19. Q: What are ToneCore pedals?A: ToneCore pedals are the line of modeling stompboxes from Line 6. Each of the pedals in the Tone Core line include superior Line 6 tone and features, rugged die-cast construction, dual-action switching (tap tempo), and 9 Volt operation (or optional power supply). Q: Are ToneCore pedals "true bypass"? A: No. However, they use an FET style switching that removes the A/D converter from the audio when in Bypass. That being said, it is unlikely that you will notice any change in your tone as FET's are extremely quiet and very fast. Q: Are the ToneCore pedals buffered? A: Yes, all the Tonecore pedals are buffered. Q: Are the ToneCore pedals "true stereo"? Which models have stereo inputs/outputs? A: The following Tonecore pedals are true stereo (stereo inputs and outputs): The Tap Tremolo, Space Chorus, and Echo park. Q: What kind of connections do the ToneCore pedals utilize? A: All ToneCore pedals have unbalanced input and output jacks. Q: Does the delay have a looper?A: No. If you need looping controls and more elaborate delay features, the Line 6 DL4 sets the standard with 14 seconds of loop time, half-speed, and loop reverse. Q: How does the tap tempo work on the various pedals? A: ToneCore pedals feature a unique 2-IN-1 step footswitch used setting the tempo for time-based effects. 1) On all effects, step firmly on the footswitch to turn the effect On and Off. 2) On the effects like delay or tremolo, tap lightly on the footswitch a couple times to set the effect tempo. Q: Will the mono dock tap feature work with stereo modules? A: Yes, the tap feature will work the same in either a mono or stereo dock. Q: How do I power my ToneCore unit? A: The Line 6 DC-1 will power one unit at a time, or you can use a standard 9v battery that tests at 9 volts or higher. Avoid using the Line 6 PX-2 power supply (used with the POD series units), as it can damage your Tonecore unit. The DC-1 can be purchased directly from the Line 6 Store. Q: Can I daisy chain Tone Core pedals on a power supply?A: No, you will want to use isolated power supplies for each ToneCore. The Pedal Power 2 Plus can power up to 6 Tonecore pedals and two Modeling pedals at once. Q: What's the difference between these and the big stomp box modelers? A: The new ToneCores are standard, single button sized stompboxes with no preset programmability, while the four button modelers have presets that can be programmed. Q: Are these models based on vintage pedal effects or are they original? A: Some models are totally new and others were developed using modified versions of Line 6's effects library. Q: Can I run my Line 6 Tonecore pedal at line level either in an effect loop or between a keyboard and an amplifier? A: Yes, you should have no problems running a Tonecore pedal at line level either in an effect loop or between a keyboard and an amplifier. Q: How do I change the battery in my Tonecore pedal? A: Press firmly on both sides of the metal buttons (at the same time) where the pedal presses down. This will disengage the locking mechanism and you will be able to access the battery chamber underneath the pedal section of the Tonecore. Q: How do I get the pedal effect to turn off? A: Due to the unique 2-IN-1 step footswitch used to set the tempo for time-based effects, you need to push hard to engage/disengage the effect. You will hear/feel an audible "click" when the effect is activated/deactivated. Q: My dock was damaged but the module is fine. How can I replace it? A: The mono dock is the only replaceable part left for this product, and can be purchased directly from the Line 6 Store. Q: What are the setting for the pedals in the demonstrations? A: Unfortunately we have no record of the settings used for the demonstrations. Q: Do I need to have my Line 6 amplifier on a specific setting if I am going to utilize a Line 6 effect pedal? A: There is no specific setting you should use, but you may want to modify the effects in your presets when doing your initial setup to hear exactly what you are working on. Q: I notice a latency when you max the mix knob on the Echo Park? A: The mix knob full on means that you will only have delay, and none of the original guitar signal. if you are running the pedal between your guitar and amplifier you will most likely want to have the mix position at 50% value or less. Q: Is the dry signal passed through as analog and then mixed with the digital wet signal, or is the entire signal converted to digital, manipulated and then converted back to analog? A: The audio signal does a "full conversion" of analog to digital processing, and then back to analog processing. Q: What is the input and output impedence of the Tonecore series? A: Input impedence: ~680-800 ohms, output impedence: ~1Kohm. Q: What size Allen wrench is used to change the effect module? A: 7/64" A.E.S.
  20. Line 6 no longer offers EPROM upgrades. Technology life cycle has made it not viable to buy the blank EPROMs through normal commercial channels any longer. We had small quantities of the EPROM for AXsys/AX2 Flextone II, POD Pro, Bass POD Pro, POD2 (original), and Bass POD to begin with, and we have run out completely. Q: What is a Line 6 EPROM Upgrade? A: An EPROM upgrade is a newer version of the firmware (flash memory) for a Line 6 unit that does not have USB capability to upgrade via the internet. Q: What are the latest versions of the Line 6 EPROM upgradeable units? A: The latest versions of EPROM are: POD: V2.3 The Pod 2.3 firmware upgrade includes recoded cabinet models as well as a few amp models. In addition, we added some test routines and addressed a minor bug or two. You should notice a little more detail, clarity, and presence in your tone because of these enhancements. The newer FBV version of the POD 2.0 will show 2.54 when checking EPROM, but these units are not upgradeable via EPROM chip. POD Pro: V1.3 Bass Pod: V1.5 Bass Pod Pro: V1.4 Flextone II: V2.4 Flextone II HD: V1.3 Q: How do I find the current version of the POD EPROM? A: To find the current version of software installed in your POD, press and hold the MANUAL button while turning on the POD. The display will first read "POD" and then the software version will follow. Continue to hold the button until the preset shows up and you will be sure to see the complete version. Upon normal power up, it will only show version 2.0. Q: How can I check the version of software on a Flextone II or III? A: Hold down the C button as you power up. The D channel will flash and then the SAVE channel will flash. The number of D flashes = X The number of Save flashes = .X So if the D flashes twice and the SAVE button flashes twice, your version is 2.2. Q: Is there a way to upgrade a POD to a Bass POD ("BOD") or Vice versa? A: Unfortunately, there is no upgrade path between the Pod and Bass Pod. Q: How do I install a new EPROM upgrade chip in the POD/POD 2.0? A: To install the Pod EPROM, take the four screws out of the back of the pod to expose the main PC board, it would be the largest chip on the board. Remove the chip with a flat screwdriver and replace with the new one. There is a notch on the socket on the PC board, line up the notch on the chip with the notch on the socket.

  21. Q: Is the Variax a MIDI guitar? A: No, the Variax is a real guitar, and the guitar does not send MIDI signals. All of the sounds available in the Variax start with the actual string vibrations of the Variax itself. Our proprietary modeling process shapes the raw string signal to replicate the sounds of the modeled instruments. Q: What type of cable can I use with the Variax? A: In order to use the supplied XPS-DI direct box/power supply to deliver power to the Variax, you will need to use the supplied 1/4-inch TRS cable or equivalent. If you use the internal batteries as your power supply, any mono 1/4-inch cable will work. Q: How do I know when it is time to change the batteries? A: When the batteries have lost their charge the indicator light will continuously flash, and the audio may become distorted or intermittent. Q: Can I use rechargeable batteries in my Variax? A: Yes, although rechargeable NiCad batteries will not last as long as alkalines, as they deliver substantially less current. Rechargeable alkaline batteries would be a longer lasting choice. Q: How long will batteries last? A: The average life of a set of 6 alkaline AA batteries should be approximately 12-14 hours. So-called 'Heavy Duty' (carbon) batteries will usually last less time. The 9-volt battery should only be used as an emergency power supply and will last approximately 1-2 hours. To help insure the longest possible battery life, be sure to unplug the 1/4 inch jack when not in use. Q: How is the Variax different from the Roland VG-8 or VG-88? A: The Variax is self-contained; all of the sounds come from inside the guitar itself. The models were specifically developed for the body resonance and transducer of the Variax for the highest possible accuracy of modeling. The VG-8/88 is an external processor that is connected to a guitar via a separate hex pickup. With the VG system, variations in tone may occur due to the guitar the pickup is attached to, and the specific placement of the pickup. The VG-8 includes basic amp modeling and effects in addition to its guitar modeling functions. With the Variax, we concentrate on the guitar characteristics only and can deliver a much higher degree of accuracy and detail. Q: Where is the Variax made? A: The Variax was designed entirely by Line 6, by experienced luthiers, engineers, and industrial designers. The Variax was originally manufactured in Korea but now is manufactured in Indonesia and China and assembled in the U.S. Our Variax guitars are made world-class facilities with the latest computer-controlled manufacturing equipment. The manufacturer prefers to remain nameless because of its relationships with other guitar companies, but they are building the guitars to Line 6's specifications. Q: Can the Variax be run through any manufacturers' effects devices? A: Yes, the Variax will work with any manufacturers' effect devices. Batteries in the Guitar will allow you to connect to Line6 and third party effects processors and wireless systems. Q: Can the Variax be used with a wireless system? My wireless transmitter does not have a TRS plug, will it still work? A: As long as you are powering the Variax with batteries, you can use a wireless like you would on a regular guitar. The TRS cable is only needed when you are using the power supply. Q: Does the Variax work with only Line 6 amps? A: The Variax works with any guitar amp from any manufacturer, but Line 6 amplifiers may have special proprietary connections for the Variax instrument. Q: Will the Ebow work on the Line 6 Variax? A: Yes, it will work fine but remember that it won't get loud over the magentic pickup because it is a piezo pickup. Q: Can I feed two amps from the jack of my Variax guitar using batteries and a y-splitter cable? A: No, the Variax jack is not a "real" stereo jack. The Variax jack does use a TRS plug, but the "sleeve" portion of it is used to transmit power rather than audio. The TRS cable is not required if you are using batteries. Q: Is there a Variax Electric reference sheet available? A: Yes there is, although not an official Line 6 document. Your collegue Line 6 enthusiasts have created several documents that will give you an overview of the models inside your Variax. You can download and print them for your own use. Download it from Vettaville and scroll down the page for the different documents Q: Is it possible to produce feedback through an amp with the Variax? A: Yes. Since the sound from the Variax starts from the strings, blasting a lot of energy into the strings by standing in front of a loud amp will produce feedback. And since the Variax uses a piezo bridge instead of conventional magnetic pickups, you won't get microphonic squeals.
  22. Q: How do I use an EX-1 Expression Pedal with a Stomp Box Modeling Pedal? A: Power off your stomp box modeler by unplugging the left/mono input. Next, plug in your expression pedal and set the expression pedal to the full heel down position. Plug the left/mono input back in and dial up a sound you like. Now press the expression pedal forward to the toe down position, and set one of more of your knobs to another setting. Rock back and forth on your expression pedal and you'll hear your sound blend between the two sound settings you just made. Store this sound into one of your pedals memories and the toe down and heel settings will be saved as well. Example of EX-1 connected to a DL4 Modeling Pedal: - Move EX-1 to heel down, adjust the delay settings on DL4. - Then move the expression pedal to toe. - Now change only the parameters that you want to be affected. - Heel to toe sweeps between those two settings. Q: Do I need to reprogram my changes with the EX-1 every time I plug the pedal in? A: You do not need to restart your effect unit everytime you want to reset the expression pedal. Your expression pedal settings will remain the way you set them up regardless of effect knob settings. Your expression pedal settings can be saved to the effects parameters saved by the footswitches. Q: Can I use one EX-1 Expression Pedal to control two modeling (4x4) pedals? A: There are a couple ways to approach running two modeling pedals with a single EX-1. Both methods require modification (as the ohm resistance will be cut in half): - Replace the 10k pot in the EX-1 with a 5k pot, and use a mono-split instrument cable to each modeling pedal. - Remove the second jack hole cover (labeled “output”) and install a second 1/4" mono jack here. Replace the existing mono 10K pot with a double-ganged or stereo 10K pot. Install the leads from each side of the pot to it's own dedicated output jack, then use one mono 1/4" cable per jack connected to each expression pedal input on the 4x4 pedal(s). Q: How can I get replacement stickers for my Stomp Box Modeling pedal? A: The stickers for the MM4 and DL4 are attached to this document for download and printing.
  23. Application Q: What are the presets on my HD147 amplifier? A: The HD147 user presets are available from the manual download section. Q: What editing software works with the HD147? A: Line 6 Edit, which is a free download at www.line6.com/software. Q: How can I control my HD147 via MIDI? A: Please check the Appendix C on your Pilot's Handbook, you will have a list of MIDI program changes and their relation with the HD147 channels. So channel 1A would recall program 1 on your MIDI device. You can either overwrite program 1 on your device with the effects you want to use with channel 1A or you can go to the preset you want to use and internally reassign that preset to MIDI program 1 (if your device offer that option). You can also set the Expression pedal on a MIDI controller to the MIDI CC# you wish to control - for example if you want to control the Delay Mix with it set the CC# to 34. Please see the bottom of this document to download the HD147 manual. Setup/Connections Q: Is there a direct out on the HD147? A: There are stereo XLR outputs on the back of the unit to route the cabinet modeling directly to a PA or mixing console. Q: Which Line 6 floor controller(s) can I use with the HD147? A: We recommend the Line 6 FBV Shortboard , but any of the FBV series controllers will control the HD147. Q: Does the HD147 have an effects loop? A: Yes, the HD147 has a stereo unbalanced effect loop. Q: What is an effect loop used for? A: An effect loop is used for “line-level” input and output level devices. Many rack mount effect units are line level units, while most guitar effects are “instrument level” units meant to be run between the instrument and the amplifier. Q: Can I connect an external pre-amp (i.e. Line 6 POD unit) to the HD147? A: You can connect an external preamp into the or the effects loop return of the HD147. Be sure to use a ¼” dummy jack in the instrument input to send the head output to the speakers. Q: How should I connect my speaker cabinet(s) to the HD147? A:Please see the following document more more information on connecting cabinets to your HD147. Cabinet Connection and Ohm F.A.Q. Specifications Q: What's the rated wattage of my HD-147? A: The HD-147 is rated at 150w/channel RMS. 147 decibels is the level of loudness at which your head explodes. What we're trying to say is that this puppy is loud. Q: How many watts are my two 16 ohm cabs going to pull per side with my HD-147? A: A solid state amp without an impedance switch puts out more power with a lower speaker load. However, we do have an impedance switch in the back of the amp. The purpose of the switch is to make sure the amp puts out the same amount of power as long as it sees the correct load. So for your set up, you would plug one cab into one of the RIGHT jacks and the other into one the LEFT jack. Set the impedance switch to 16 ohms. Your amp should put out 150 watts per side. Registration/Warranty Q: What is the warranty on the HD147? A: the warranty on the HD147 is twelve months from the date of purchase. Q: How can I register my HD147? A: Registration Troubleshooting/Service Q: How do I perform a factory reset on my HD147? A: The reset for a HD147 is to hold the A and D Buttons while powering the amp. Q: My amp seems to be malfunctioning. What can I do as an end user? Line 6 Amp Trouble Shooting Q: Where can I get replacement knobs/speakers/logos for my HD147 amp? A: Line 6 Store Q: Where can I download a HD147 manual? A: Line 6 Manuals
