  1. Q: Where can I find the manual for my Line 6 controller? A: Instructions on how to use your FBV controller can be found in the back of your specific amplifier's user manual. See the link below. user manual . Q: Which Line 6 controller works with which device? A: Please see the chart for more information on which controller will function with each Line 6 device. FBV compatibility chart Q: How do I engage the Wah? A: To engage the wah, simply press toe down on the foot pedal until it clicks over and you see the WAH light turn on. It takes a fair amount of pressure to get it to click over (if you get no results, try putting your entire weight on the toe position when you are standing). Over time this function will get easier. Q: Is it possible to control MIDI devices using the Floorboard via my Line 6 unit? For example, when I change to a specific channel/bank on the Line 6 unit, is a corresponding MIDI Program Change message sent from the MIDI Out to my other MIDI device? A: Yes, the Line 6 unit will send MIDI program change messages via it's MIDI out port when controlled by the floorboard. Q: Where are the sounds stored on the FBV board? A: The presets are always stored in the Line 6 unit, the FBV series only changes/controls the Line 6 device. Data Cable FAQs Q: What type of cables are used with the Line 6 controllers? A: The Line 6 controllers use a standard CAT-5 cable with standard RJ-45 ends. These cables are very common in data connection and can be found in most local computer outlets. The FBV controllers ship with a black 25' cable included in the box. Do not use CAT6, as it is a different impedance than CAT5. Q: How long can the CAT-5 cable be before I have communication errors? A: We have tested with cable lengths up to 50' with no problems. Q: Can I use a "cross-over" CAT-5 cable with Line 6 gear? A: You CANNOT use a "crossover" CAT-5 cable, as it may send voltage to unintended locations of your FBV Controller and damage the unit. Q: I used a new data cable to connect my FBV series controller and I saw smoke? A: It sounds as if you may have used a network "cross-over" cable, which has a different wiring configuration (but the same RJ-45 connection) as a standard CAT-5 cable. If this is the case, voltage that was intended to power the the pedal were routed to the wrong place, resulting in damage to the pedal. This FBV series controller will need to repaired/replaced. Q: Can I use a CAT-5 data splitter from my Line 6 unit(s) to run multiple FBV controllers on stage (or run multiple Line 6 units from a single controller)? A: No, The FBV controller was designed to work on its own with a single amplifier. If you feel this is a feature you would want to implement, please submit a feature request: ideascale FBV Express F.A.Q.s Q: Why doesn't the tuner feature work on my FBV Express? A: The tuner feature on the FBV Express only works when used with amps or units that feature a built-in tuner. For example the Spider II HD75 has no built in tuner, therefore the tuner on the FBV Express is disabled. Q: Can I access more than one bank of presets with my FBV EXPRESS? A: No, the FBV Express will only access the A, B, C or D channels of whatever bank your unit is selected. For example, if your POD XT is sent to BANK 5, then you would be able to access and change between 5A, 5B, 5C, and 5D. FBV and Shortboard F.A.Q.s Q: What is the difference between the FBV and the FBX controllers? A: These two pedals are identical. The pedal was originally released as the "FBX" controller, but the name was changed soon after the release to the "FBV" controller. Q: Are there any control functions on the FBV controller that will not work with all Line 6 devices? A: The FBV controller was designed for use with the Line 6 Vetta. While the majority of the buttons (i.e. A B C D) will work correctly, some buttons (i.e. amp 1/2, stomp 2/ 3, tremolo, favorite channel) may or may not have a function on your Line 6 Spider, Flextone, PODxt, POD X3, etc. See the documentation and FAQs for more specification application information. Q: I cannot see the patch name when editing my XT unit from my FBV (shortboard) controller? A: You will be able to see the patch name in the view window of the XT device, but you will not see the changes in the FBV controller window. External Expresion Pedal FAQs Q: What type of pedal do I need to use for an optional expression pedal with my Line 6 controller? A: The Line 6 EX-1 is the recommended expression pedal for additional control, and is connected to your Line 6 controller with a standard mono guitar cable. It utilizes a 10k Ohm pot. Q: When using an EX-1 expression pedal with an FBV shortboard, can I re-assign the EX-1 to control something other than volume? A: The Ex-1 expression pedal cannot be reassigned to a function other than controlling volume. Q: What are the specs for the EX-1? Line 6 Expression Pedal (EX-1) F.A.Q.s FBV MKII Questions Q: What is the difference between the original FBV series and the MKII series Express and Shortboard controllers? A: The MKII series Express and Shortboards will control any device that could be controlled by the MKI controller. See the following information for more specific physical changes: The MK II units have a USB port that can be used to connect to a computer for updating purposes or to be used as a controller for many recording softwares. Instead of Comp on the MKI, it's Stomp on the MKII. Instead of FX Loop on the MKI, it's Function 1 on the MKII. On the MKII, Function 2 is present. There is no such button on the MKI pedals, so Function 2 does nothing on older Line 6 products. The MKII Shortboard's view screen is 4 5/8" x 1/2", as compared to the 6" x 3/4" high view screen found on the MKI Shortboard. See the dimensions chart for other physical changes on the MKII series: Line 6 Product Dimensions Q: I noticed there is no driver for the FBV Mk II controller for connecting by USB. How is the FBV Mk II series recognized by a computer? A: The FBV Mk II series uses a class compliant driver that is already installed on your machine. Please see the following link if your machine is not recognizing the FBV Mk II controller: USB Connectivity with Line 6 Devices Q: Can I use the Mk II series pedals as an interface to my "MIDI-only" amplifier (i.e. Axsys, Flextone, HD147, Vetta) to update via Line 6 Monkey or edit using Line 6 edit? A: No, the Mk II device will not act as an interface for your "MIDI-only" device. Q: Can I change the assignements of the FBV buttons on the my computer that control my Line 6 device? A: The control assignments of the FBV mk II can be changed to whatever assignments you need on your computer, but the re-assigned buttons will not be recognized when connecting to a Line 6 device (the Line 6 device will only see the function(s) that were pre-determined). Q: My FBV device is no longer functional after bringing my computer out of "sleep mode"? A: This issue can be seen with many class-compliant driver devices. You can either turn off the "sleep mode" or restart your computer for the FBV Mk II unit to be recognized by your computer after coming out of sleep mode. FBV 3 FAQ Q: Can I assign the LEDs to different colors if I'm using a Line 6 product other than Firehawk 1500? A: Assignable color LEDs are available for use with Firehawk 1500 only. LEDs are red when FBV 3 is used with other Line 6 products. Q: How do I calibrate the FBV 3 expression pedal? A: You don't, the FBV 3 auto calibrates the pedal. Q: Will the FBV 3 work with my old Line 6 amp? A: Please check out the compatibility list here, FBV compatibility chart Q: I noticed there is no driver for the FBV 3 controller for connecting by USB. How is the FBV Mk II series recognized by a computer? A: The FBV 3 uses a class compliant driver that is already installed on your machine. Q: What type of pedal do I need to use for an optional expression pedal with my Line 6 controller? A: The Line 6 EX-1 is the recommended expression pedal for additional control, and is connected to your Line 6 controller with a standard mono guitar cable. It utilizes a 10k Ohm pot. Calibration Procedures Q: How do I calibrate the FBV 3 expression pedal? A: You don't, the FBV 3 auto calibrates the pedal. Note: FBV Mk II controllers will need to have firmware 1.10.0 or later installed for the calibration procedure, using Line 6 Monkey 1.31 or later. See the following link for more information on updating your firmware using Line 6 Monkey: FBV Mk II (Express and Shortboard) software update FBV Shortboard Mk. II: (Note: Before performing the calibration routine, please disconnect any expansion expression pedals IE: EX-1) 1) Hold the D button while connecting the CAT-5 cable on the FBV. The display will read 'CALIBRATE PEDAL' until the D button is released, at which point it will read '1 PEDAL TOE'. 2) Press and hold the internal pedal toe-switch until the LCD changes to '2 PEDAL MIN'. This should occur instantly. 3) Set the heel to (minimum) position, press the D button. The LCD will change to '3 LCD MAX'. 4) Set the toe position (maximum) and press the D button. The LCD will change to 'CHECK VALUE 127'. 5) Move the pedal and verify that the value reaches 0 in the minimum position and 127 in the maximum position. 6) Press D to exit FBV Express Mk. II: 1) Hold D while powering on the FBV. Upon release, the pedal display will read '1'. 2) Press and hold the pedal toeswitch until the 7 segment display changes to '2'. This should occur instantly. 3) Set the heel to the heel (minimum) position, press the D button. The 7 segment display will change to '3â'. 4) Set the toe position (maximum) and press the D button. The tuner LEDs above the 7 segment display will light. 5) Move the pedal and verify that the tuner LEDs sequentially turn off as the pedal moves to the minimum position, and refills when moved to the maximum position. 6) Press D to exit FBV Express (Mk I): 1) Unplug the RJ45 cable from your FBV EXPRESS 2) Move the expression pedal all the way to the toe down position 3) Hold down the A and D switches 4) Plug in your RJ45 with the switches still depressed and hold this for 10 seconds (you will see the LED go blank) 5) Move the expression pedal to the heel position and then all the way forward to the toe. 6) Shift all of your weight to the toe position (you will want to stand up) until the WAH light switches on. 7) Wait 10 seconds and click back to VOL. Your FBV EXPRESS is now calibrated. FBV Shortboard Calibration (Mk I) 1. Attach the CAT-5 cable from your Line 6 device to your FBV shortboard. Power on the Line 6 device. The FBV Shortboard LEDs should cycle and the display should read "LINE 6" with the backlight lit up. 2. Once the pedal is fully powered and showing the the preset from the Line 6 device, move the ONBOARD expression pedal to the center position, roughly halfway between the toe (maximum) and heel (minimum) position. 3. Press STOMP + DELAY + REVERB and hold for three seconds to begin calibration of the ONBOARD pedal. 4. Move the ONBOARD pedal to its MAXIMUM position (pedal all the way toe down) and press down hard enough to click the pedal's toe switch. You want need to stand up and put your fullweight on the pedal to ensure the pedal switches over you will hear a slight "click" sound. The second number grouping (from the left) in the display should read "127" 5. Move the ONBOARD pedal to its MINIMUM position and press down (pedal all the way heel down). The second number grouping (from the left) in the display should read "0". **If you have an EXTERNAL pedal, hook it up to your FBV SHORTBOARD now and continue on to step six. If you do NOT have an external pedal, simply turn off your Line 6 device, you are done calibrating. 6. Move the EXTERNAL pedal to the center position, roughly halfway between the MAXIMUM and MINIMUM position. 7. Press BANK DOWN + STOMP + DELAY and hold for three seconds, to begin calibration of the EXTERNAL pedal. 8. Move the EXTERNAL pedal to its MAXIMUM position (pedal all the way toe down). 9. Move the EXTERNAL pedal to its MINIMUM position and press down (pedal all the way heel down). 10. Turn OFF your Line 6 device. You have just calibrated your EXTERNAL pedal. FBV/FBX Pedal 1. Connect your FBX to your amp. The LEDs should cycle and the LCD should display "LINE 6" with the backlight lit. 2. Move both pedals to their center positions roughly halfway between the MAX and MIN position. 3. Press AMP1 + AMP2 + PITCHSHIFT/TREMOLO and hold for three seconds. This will reset the calibration values for the pedals to their default values. 4. Press AMP1 + AMP2 + DELAY and hold for three seconds. This will now display the pedal information for the LEFT pedal. 5. Move the LEFT pedal to its MAX position (pedal all the way toe down) and press down hard enough to actuate the pedal's toe switch. NOTE: You will only see 000 in the first column (AAA) until you click the toe switch down. 6. Move the LEFT pedal to its MIN position and press down (pedal all the way heel down). 7. Check the range on the MAX (number displayed on right hand side of the display) and MIN (number displayed second from right hand side of display) values to see that they are within spec (Pedal Testing section above). 8. Move the pedal to its MIN position. With the pedal just sitting there, check the number displayed in the second column (BBB). It should read 000. Press the pedal down at the heel position. This number should still read 000. 9. Press AMP1 + AMP2 + MODULATION and hold for three seconds. This will now display the pedal information for the RIGHT pedal. 10. Repeat steps 7 through 9 only for the RIGHT pedal. FBV Series Troubleshooting procedures: Calibrate the pedal (using the methods previously discussed). Ensure that all washers/nuts/screws are seated correctly and tight. Use a different CAT-5 cable to be sure the cable is functioning correctly. Use a different Line 6 device to ensure the problem is not in the CAT-5 input of the Line 6 device. If the unit is out of warranty: Open the bottom of the unit by removing the screws, and tighten the hex nut that holds the pedal to the chassis (the torque is 19 psi.) If you have no success with the troubleshooting suggestions above, please take your controller to the nearest Authorized Service Center.

    Recommend Fbv For Pod Hd Pro X?

    I recently bought a line 6 pod HD pro X, I'm really confused On the footcontroller page it says ("NOTE: FBV Shortboard is NOT compatible with Ax212™, Flextone™ I, II or HD, POD® Pro, Bass POD®, Bass POD® Pro and Spider™.)" But then i go on the compatibility chart it has a red checkmark saying its compatible http://line6.com/footcontrollers/compatibility.html Same story with the full size board (which I'd prefer) (NOTE: FBV is NOT compatible with Ax212™, Flextone™I, II or HD, POD® Pro, Bass POD®, Bass POD® Pro and Spider™.) http://line6.com/footcontrollers/fbv.html Anyone know's what's the story?

    Pod hd desktop with fbv2

    Hello everyone, I have seen the compatibility between pod hd and the fbv products and I understand that the fbv2 is not compatible with the pod hd desktop. But I wanted to know what does really happen when we connect those 2, is it (fbv2) not going to be recognised? Is it (fbv2) not going to be turned on at all? Or is it (the pod) going to do unwanted things when the buttons are pressed? Has anyone tried this before? Is it not recommended at all? I only want to know out of curiosity, and because I would certainly love to travel with that one rather than the express mk2 (it's much smaller and for rehearsing I only need to switch presets). Cheers! \m/
  6. Just bought a fbv shortboard for my Spider IV 150 primarily for the pc connectivity. My other Spider V (30 and 20) amps will record directly to Audacity on my PC. All I had to do was select the device from the audio input devices in the program. But when I plug the shortboard into my pc I do not get the option to select it. Is there a driver, or a step I may be missing here? I do get connectivity to the Spider IV edit software so I know there is a connection to the pc, but nothing in the device menus for recording.

  10. Hi, I’m looking at replacing my original cable that connects my fbv express mkii pedal to my Spider V 240 head as Iv recently broken the clip on the rj45 connector and also noticed the plastic cable sleeve beginning to split due to wear and tear, exposing the inner wires. The writing on the cable itself says it’s a Cat5e cable and iv looked at the wiring pins/colours and know it’s a straight type, not a crossover type. My question is can I use a Cat6 cable to replace the cat5e? Iv heard that using the wrong cable can kill the amp and/or pedal. I’m looking at getting a nylon/flat cable for more durability instead of the cheaper hard plastic ones but can only find these types for Cat6 upwards. thanks scott
  11. ฉันใช้ Footswitch.FBV Express ฉันกด A&D ปุ่มในเวลาเดียวกัน จากนั้นไม่มีเสียงจากแอมป์กีตาร์ของฉัน ฉันใช้รวมกับ แอมป์ Spider.iv15 ฉันจะแก้ไขได้อย่างไร
  12. Although I actually do enjoy well-written manuals - and I would put Line6 manuals in that category - the ones for the Spider Jam and the FBV Express II are for the most part too technical for me. Well, not so much technical as an avalanche of tech-terminology that the writers clearly expect me to already know. My eyes glaze over. My difficulty is that nowhere can I find how you assign a particular guitar tone on the Jam amp to one of the four foot buttons on the FBV pedal. The pedal is s/hand, and works fine, but the buttons take me to the previous owner's four favourites and I don't know how to change that. Unless I've missed it, neither the Jam's manual nor the FBV's manual explain how you do it. Or they do, but I don't recognise it for what it is. I appreciate that the real difficulty is probably me but, if I'm to make any progress, I need a simple plain-language step-by-step explanation. Can anyone help?
  13. Hello Guitar Pros and sonic experts. I got an issue with my FBV Shortboard MkII because it goes blank when i connect it to my POD 2.0. It does not seem to control the thing. Am i doing something wrong here? or is the Shortboard MkII just not able to control or not compatible to my POD 2.0? and if not, is it possible to mod the FBV shortboard MkII so that it can control my POD 2.0? I need your help. Pls advise. Rgds NT

    X3 + FBV Express MkII

    Hello, I have recently aquired an used X3 (bean) with a FBV Express MkII controller. This all works fine, but when I configure the pedal control in GearBox to "Both Tones", "1 1=twk|2=vol" and "2 1=twk|2=vol" and under Tweak "Mod:Mix" under both, the footswitch pedal does not actually alter the Mix option for the Modulation (which is enabled) on both Tones (Dual enabled). I tried other options for Tweak and they don't seem to react either. When the settings are on 1=w/v|2=twk for example, the footswitch pedal does alter the volume and can switch Wah on. Anybody any idea? I can tweak the pedal settings with FBV Controller but that should only be used if the controller is connected with USB to the PC. The controller works with the network cable on the bean.
  16. Hallo, I purchased an FBV3 pedal to control my Amplify. It works great and the midi controll software is easy to use too. Since Amplify has no looper and there is no easy way to integrate a classic external looper, I thought maybe I can connect both, Amplify AND computer and use a software looper controlled by FBV pedal. Can I switch FBV3 back to control Amplify mode while the USB cable is attached? Thank for any advice and/or oppinionon the topic. Yours recoder

  18. Hi everyone, I have an Amplifi 150 and i kinda love the guitar effects and was considering to buy a pedal footswitch to control its effects. Which pedal is better suited/your preference while using it with an AMplifi? FBV Shortboard MKII or FBV 3? I noted that the FBV 3 has some features (E.g. Programmable lights) Which are not compatible with Amplifi 150. FBVShortboard MKII: https://line6.com/foot-controllers/fbv-shortboard-mkii FBV 3: https://line6.com/foot-controllers/fbv3 Thanks!
  19. Hi all, I just got a refurb FBV Express MKII controller to use with my POD HD Pro X. I plugged it into the POD, the tuner lights blink showing that it's receiving power, but after that none of the lights on the pedal turn on, patches won't change, expression pedal or tuner functions do nothing. I then went through the calibration procedure (with no issues) and after pressing the D pedal the final time to exit, still nothing. When I connected to my computer, the pedal is responsive as it should be. It's just not doing anything with the POD. I've tries turning the POD off and back on after calibration, disconnected and reconnected the pedal, etc...basically anything I could think of. I've read through the manual for the FBV Express MKII and the controller section of the HD Pro X manual and can't find anything to help me figure out how to address this. Am I missing something? I scrolled through the board and none of the FBV/POD HD Pro threads I've looked at seem to address this particular issue. Thanks
  20. Hi all! I hope someone is able to help me shed some light on my situation. I have an old Pod XT which works fine. I recently managed to buy a FBV Longboard (two expression pedal board) and when I plug it into the xt it shows 'Line 6' on the display but none of the buttons change anything on the pod other than when I click the wah pedal in which does work. Nothing else seems to work though. Has anyone got any ideas? I've updated Line 6 Monkey, firmware e.t.c and still I only get the wah function working and nothing else. Thanks everyone! Ryan
  21. Hello everyone I recently bought an fbv shortboard for my pod hd pro. Unfortunately, when plugging the shortboard in to my pod, it simply isn't being detected at all. No lights, no functions. I then hooked it up to my computer via USB were it was detected. I updated all drivers and flash via line 6 monkey. I couldnt find any help on the internet on how to get the fbv to work with the pod! This is really really disappointing. However, I then plugged the shortboard into to VARIAX input of my pod (I know this is not were it goes, but i needed to find out, whether the cable worked at all) and the shortboard was detected, but i simply couldnt do anything with it. Would someone please tell me, what I am doing wrong? P.S. I tried calibrating the pedal and that wont work (via USB to computer) either.
  22. Has anyone ever actually tried a FBV Shortboard Mk1 with an Amplifi product via the FBV input? I realise everything says officially only the MkII (2) Shortboard will work, but given the only real difference appears to be a lack of a USB port, I'm thinking it should work? Obviously I would not be able to re-program the board via the USB software like the MkII. Thanks, M.
  23. Look that pretty FBV 3... easily the most appealing MIDI foot controller out there. But they have again missed the opportunity to have the best MIDI foot controller by omitting MIDI DIN connections. You still can get a MIDI-USB to MIDI-DIN converter as the Kenton MIDI USB Host MKII but... at 125€. A very expensive price for a device that only does one thing. But .. what would have been the supplement in the price of the FBV3 if already included MIDI DIN In/Out? Probably just a few dollars. At least they are considering adding the possibility of changing the color of the LEDs, based on the proposal I made in ideascale. But it bothers me a lot to have to spend 125 € extra on a fcking USB converter due to a bad design decision, which in addition they have already committed many times, again and again, with all those prior FBVs. All this could also be applied to the Helix controller, of course. Here the case is even more blatant, because it can not even be used as a USB MIDI controller. Guys, have you seen the sad panorama regarding MIDI foot controllers? Old models such as the Boss FC-300 or the Yamaha MFC10, expensive and limited. Or other very expensive artifacts offered by esoteric brands... When you have the one (or two) that could be the best MIDI foot controler in the market, only if you add MIDI DIN inputs and outputs. You also missed the IOS connectivity by ommiting a direct standard 9V AC connector. (as the ipad cannot feed enough juice to the FBV3 thru USB) Why, Line 6, WHY? What strange reasoning has led you to omit such things?
  24. hi, my fbv express stopped working after i updated the software on monkey. at first it started slashing when i plugged it into the amp and it made a loud noise, now it wont turn on at all when plugged into either the amp or my computer. can any one help?
  25. I'm migrating from hardware to software due to the all the great possibilities but there are some irritating issues. As an example I'd like to access the display directly from Ableton Live or a Max for Live plug in. I've been using an old FBV, as well as the FBV Mk2, connected to a Pod XT bean as translator. I've converted the incoming pgm chg to CC and let it control the chain selector in an audio rack. I'v got my audio rack set up pretty much as the Pod with Pod Farm amps controlled by A, B, C, D and the stomp, mod, delay etc by corresponding buttons. This works quite well and I can Send midi back to the Pod, by dummy clips, and it will display a name on the FBV corresponding to whatever name is entered to the patch number in the Pod. I can also use the tuner display on the FBV by using the tuner output on the Relay receiver to the Pod. However I'd rather use the FBV Mk2 through USB. Does anyone know how to access the FBV through USB (fake-midi)? I'm talking about sending to the FBV, not from. Could sysex commands be used? Obviously it's possible but how?
