  1. I purchased a FBV Express MKII for my Spider IV 15 so I wouldn't have to go to my amp to change channels. I figured it would be as simple as just using the provided CAT-5 cable to connect the Pedal to the amp. When this didn't work I went through the process of calibrating it at least ten times. The calibration process worked. It went from 1 to 4 and all seven lights lit up. I unplugged it from the amp and reconnected it only to have it do nothing. I spent about an hour trying to find a USB cable to connect it to the computer to use the Line 6 Monkey to update it only to have it be fully updated. I preformed a factory reset just to be safe. I re-calibrated it to the amp and still nothing. So I then used the Line 6 FBV Control to program the pedal only to still have it not function with the amp. Does anybody know how to fix this?

    Amplifi / Controller Questions.

    Anyone know what the functions of the FBV Express and FBV Shortboard are with this amp?
  3. Hello, I recently bought the FBV Express MKII to controll my POD XT (bean) unit. The problem is, that the board doesn't switch any patches at all. Example: If I select different patches on my pod, the respective led on the fbv does light up. Let's say I have 28A selected on my pod. The FBV then lights up on A. I switch on my pod to 28B -> FBV B lights up. Obviously, the FBV should controll my POD, not the other way around ;) If I use the ABCD switches on the FBV, nothing happens on the POD. How is this possible? The manual says, both units are compatible and they should work "plug & play". What I already tried to do: I updated anything via line6monkey. I connected the FBV to usb only to test in Gearbox -> same as it is with the pod. I switch something in gear box and the leds on the FBV change, but not the other way around I connected the FBV to the POD with the original cable, having the POD conected to my PC via USB and without havong it connected to my PC. -> No difference! I calibrated the FBV multiple times. I just noted, that the red led on the FBV (let's say B) is flickering in an interval of ~2-3 seconds when I put it on. (This is not for TAP, as I choose a sound without any TAP tempo stuff). The display shows nothing, until I change the sound on the pod. It then shows ABC or D and the LED stops flickering - > still no function on the FBV-buttons Did anyone experience this kind of problem? Or is there maybe a simple solution I just didn't think of? I'm looking forward to your suggestions :) David
  4. Hi everyone, I added a Voodoo Lab GCX to my rig and I'm experimenting with using my FBV Shortboard MKII to send it MIDI control change messages through the POD HD Pro. I have it working where I can hit my FS1 button to toggle Controller #80 on or off through channel 16. The only thing that needs improvement is I was wondering if it would be possible to have the LED on the FS1 stay on when the value is 127 (On) and have it off when I toggle the button again. Is this doable? Thanks, Anthony
  5. After updating to new firmware (1.01) and app (1.2), fbv express changes preset to A, B, C, D of only bank 1. Whenever I try to change preset via ios app (ie bank 3, preset B ), tone changes accordingly but when I use fbv express to change the preset after selecting the bank with ios app (let's say preset C of current bank) it automatically loads preset (ie C or which button you pressed) of bank 1. So, Selecting Bank 3 - Tone B via ios app -> amplifi loads the tone properly -> Push the button C of fbv express mkii -> ios app and amplifi loads the Bank 1 - Tone C instead of Bank 3 - Tone C So, currently I can use fbv express mkII only with first bank, limited with 4 presets. Anyone with same experience?

    Fbv Longboard Issue W/pod X3 Pro

    Just acquired an FBV longboard to use with a POD X3 pro. Volume and wah pedals and their lights work, but the LCD display doesn't light up and none of the buttons or their lights work. Has anyone else experienced this? Update: Ok, saw someone else mention in another post the ribbon cables inside the FBV coming unconnected. Sure enough, took off all the screws and popped it open, two of the ribbon cable connectors came loose. Popped them back in and now works fine. My question now is: What kinds of solutions have others used to keep the ribbon cable connectors from coming loose? I noticed there was a sort of white caulking substance laid around the connectors but obviously they didn't work (they seem kind of soft). Need something I can feel confident will not come loose during a show.

    Using My X3 Bean Live With A Poweramp?!

    Hey guys, Love this forum, so helpful compared to some out there. I am looking to sell my ENGL (dont need 150w) and use my POD X3 a bit more - i have some great patches downloaded from Reece Fullwood (Mask of Judas) and Drewsif Stalin - I recommend you check out these guys if you havent heard of them - i nearly quit when i heard Reece! Anyway - i have a 2x12 laney ironheart cab and an X3 bean - I was wondering..... I see the X3 bean has a FBV input on it - does this mean I could purchase the FBV pedal and a power amp and i would be able to run my POD sounds live with the ability to switch around with the FBV? I am desperate to get rid of my ENGL and 4X12 (moved outta my folks house into a top story apartment and my band practices miles away where we have to carry the gear down a long path.... I cant stands no more!!!!! Help me friends!!!! Lenny

    Compatible Pedals with the Spider Jam

    Alright, I have a question hopefully someone can answer. I own a Line 6 Spider Jam amp and i want to make better use of the recording function by going hands-free. If i bought the fbv express mk2 would i be able to control my recording (start, stop, overdub)? via the footpedals or is that only possible on the fbv shortboard? Thanks Ben
  9. Hi there... I've Googled round for a lot of my answers, but just need some final confirmations. I have just got the UX2 and now I am after an expression pedal. Not too fussed about assignments, I just want a basic wah facility. Is there a cheap and cheerful solution? What about the FBV MKII - will this work with the UX2? Cheers, Lee PS - no metronome on the UX2 - have I missed something?
  10. I bought the FBV Express Mk II for my son about a month or so ago. It works fine in terms of sound, but it has an annoying squeak when he works the Wah pedal. Our usual solution is to crank the volume up but I kinda think this should only be temporary. :) If it's just a case of lubing the shims on the pedal shaft/axle I'm happy to do that provided it won't invalidate the warranty. Or does this indicate a fault and I should return it for a replacement? Amazon are usually pretty good with that sort of thing. It just seems a bit unnecessary if it's just some dry surface friction. Cheers.
  11. I have a spider iv 75 amp with FBV shortboard connected. Can someone tell me why the volume is so high when I turn it on? I have lower and raise the pedal to get the volume back under control.
  12. is there not a way to connect my MKII Shortboard via USB and download new tones to use on my Spider III 150w amp head? ALSO, isn't there a way I can connect the MKII and "fine tune" my effects I currently have on there? for example: custom naming my banks/presets... etc etc. just getting started on this and any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks, ace

    Amp Head Frozen

    hey i need some help in figuring out whats going on with my amp. i bought it recently from a pawn shop and i am determined in ressurecting it to full function. if oyu can shoot me a reply or email me @ hiand006@gmail.com. here is a video of my problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYB03I1zPxg
  14. I have the Spider valve 112MKii combo and the Express pedal. I have had a hell of a time figuring how to set up this stuff. anyhow, the express pedal works fine,(stores only 4 sounds/wah and volume) but when I hook it up to my computer, it goes blank.(the pedal) I have all of the drivers installed, and collaborated the pedal, I just want to get MKii EDIT to work, but the computer does not recognize the amp because the fbv express turns off when I plug in the USB cable from the pedal to the usb port on the computer. can I bypass this and use MKii EDIT directly somehow? any ideas??
  15. Hello everyone. I currently use a Pod HD Desktop and love it, but this post isn't exactly about such. I enjoy its features but am saddened by the lack of midi inputs, virtual or physical and was wondering if I could rig it up to one of the Fbv boards (most likely the express). My intention would to use a daw to send midi signals to the fbv, then have that switch between patches in my Pod as necessary for my live show. I know the mkii fbv boards have a single midi input, so I was wondering if it could be used this way or not. Essentially, if you don't understand what I'm trying to accomplish, the guy in this video is doing the same thing, just using physical midi output from a computer interface into a physical midi input on his pod. I would be doing the same, except Daw's midi tracks > Fbv > Pod. Is this possible? Thanks in advance ^_^
  16. yes, your eyes are working well: a car/scooter passed over my FBV Shortboard and I'd like to try repairing it. I would basically need a new chassis and, probably, some ICs. but the chassis is worst... Could somebody help/suggest me? thanx
  17. Hi, first post. I looked around but didn't see this question anywhere. I've been using a Line 6 Spider 2 2x12 combo amp with an FBV shortboard. I just bought a Line 6 Spider 2 half stack, which has identical controls to the combo. If I were to use the shortboard with the half stack, would it still keep the settings that were stored from the combo and transfer those to the new amp? Thanks for any help you can give me! Skot
  18. Hi, I have a Spider Valve 112 and a floorboard plugged in. The pedalboard has decided to stop working. I have tried the floor board in another amp exactly the same and also my pod and it fires up ok. Im assuming this means I have a faulty connection at the amp end. Anyone know the voltages I should be getting down the pins of the FBV connection? Heres what I got...white/orange - 0v, orange - 9v, white/green - 0v, blue - 0v, white blue - 9v, green - 3.2v, white/brown - 3.2v and brown 0v. Is a faulty socket a likely cause or could this be software related? Just checked output on pins on the pod and its 8.2v on every pin. (the pedal works fine on this) I appreciate any help in this matter. Cheers
  19. First, connect the FBV via USB to the computer and use the FBV Control software. In the File>Open menu, select the ‘Gearbox’ preset for the FBV. This will store on the FBV automatically. Close FBV Control. Then, start Gearbox with the FBV still connected to the computer. Go to the Edit>Preferences window, and in the ‘MIDI/Control’ tab, select USB Audio Device for MIDI Input. Hit Apply and then, OK. The FBV will now control certain parameters of the program including Wah/Volume sweep and toggling. If you would like to change the behavior of the switches, you should than exit Gearbox and go back to FBV Control once again to assign MIDI CC Toggle messages that correspond with what they want to control in the program. You can reference the chart for Gearbox MIDI CC messages starting on page 2.14 of the following Gearbox MIDI CC Reference Guide: http://line6.com/data/6/0a060b316ac34f0593546810e/application/pdf/MIDI%20Continuous%20Controller%20Reference%20-%20English%20(%20Rev%20F%20).pdf
  20. I have an FBV Shortboard that I purchased with my Flextone III Plus. It works fine; but as of a week ago, the LED display has been going out randomly. It will come back but I never know when. I'm thinking that I might have a loose connection somewhere. I take it everywhere and all the loading/unloading might have jostled something loose. Anyone experience this before?
  21. Hello All, I need help, I want to know can I midi map my floorboard to an electronic rack in ableton live and if so can anyone tell me how. PLEAAASE!
  22. Any possibility that plugging the Pocket POD into my Mac, via USB AND plugging FBV Shortboard MkII into my Mac, via USB, would allow me to control parameters of the PocketPOD from the FBV?

    Hd500 With Extra Fbv Board?

    I have a FBV express mkII with my POD x3, and was wondering if I could use this together with my HD500. Would that be possible? As an optional foot controller for instance? Since there is no FBV input I've probably have to use midi in/out then. Or might it be another way?
