    JM4 2.09 Update Instructions

    Firmware v2.09 Release Notes: * Eliminated slight delay when entering Record mode. * Fixed problem with extended-ascii characters in file names. * Fixed Undo issue for recordings loaded directly from SD-Card, where the last two overdubs would be erased instead of only the most recent one. JM4 Advanced Guide: For in-depth info on features and functionality of the JM4 Looper not included in the Pilot's Handbook, check out: JM4 Advanced Manual WARNING: BACK UP YOUR FILES! The v2.09 update will erase all the internal recordings you have made. If you want to save them, use an SD card to create backups (via the TRANSFER ALL TO CARD command) then copy them from your SD card onto your PC for safe keeping (using an SD card reader). You can then reload your files using an SD card at any time after you have completed the update. The v2.09 update will erase all the custom guitar presets you have made. Here are the instructions on Saving and Loading the presets to and from the JM4: STORING PRESETS Created a User Tone and Saved it to a user location. In the SETTINGS/TONE menu, please make sure RECORDINGS SET TONE is set to ON. Made a recording with that guitar tone and save the recording to the internal memory. Do this for every preset you would like to store. In the SAVE menu, select the TRANSFER ALL TO CARD option. All of your recordings and their associated tone will be saved to the SD card. [*] LOADING PRESETS To transfer them back into the amp, go to the SAVE menu and choose the TRANSFER ALL FROM CARD option. This will load the recordings and the associated presets back onto the JM4. Now, when you load a recording that was transferred onto the JM4 from the SD Card, the preset that was stored with the recording will be loaded with the recording. It will show in the SETTINGS/TONE menu with an asterisk (*) next to the name. To store this preset back into the JM4 User presets, go to the SAVE menu and select SAVE GUITAR TONE to store the preset in the User location you desire. Instructions for updating (also attached): 1. If you haven't done so already, download the latest firmware to your computer desktop from the Line 6 website (log in with your Line 6 User Name), by going to the following link: JM4 Looper 2.09 firmware The downloaded file will be named "fw.bin", with no number. Please save this to your desktop to easily find the file once the file has been downloaded. Note: You will need to delete any previous JM4 Looper updates from your desktop prior to saving the JM4 Looper 2.09 firmware, as the device will not recognize any firmware with an extension or name alterations. 2. Copy the downloaded fw.bin file to a blank SD card via an SD card reader. When the copy is complete, put the downloaded fw.bin file in a safe place on your PC for future reference -- for example, put it in a new folder labeled 'JM4 Looper Flash', noting the version #. 3. Insert your SD card into the JM4 Looper SD card slot. 4. Press the SAVE button to display the menu items in the LCD if they aren't already displayed. 5. Turn the wheel and navigate to FIRMWARE UPGRADE at the bottom of the menu list then press Right Arrow to display the upgrade screen. 6. Press Up Arrow for YES to proceed with the update -- the JM4 Looper will update itself from the SD Card. When the update is complete, the JM4 Looper will power cycle itself. *NOTE: Do not turn off power in the middle of the update. 7. Verify the update was successful by previewing a few Songs and Drum tracks (scroll thru the list – each track will play for a few seconds when you select it). 8.After verifying the update was successful, press the SAVE button again to display the menu list. 9. Turn the wheel and navigate to FORMAT CARD then press Right Arrow to display the format screen. 10. Press Up Arrow for YES and the JM4 Looper will format the SD Card, preparing it for normal operation. 11. When formatting is complete, you're all set. If you ever want to reinstall your firmware, go back to your computer and copy the 'fw.bin' file to your SD Card, then repeat the above steps from Step 2. 12. If you want to load your backed up .WAV files into your JM4 Looper again, simply copy them from your computer into the "LINE6" folder on your SD card using your SD card reader, then load them into your JM4 Looper using the IMPORT WAV FILE FROM CARD command. (consult the JM4 Looper Advanced Guide for info on the option of viewing and loading your files via the SD Recordings Browser). If there is no LINE6 folder on the SD Card root directory, please create one. **FORMAT ALERT: If your SD Card is rejected by the JM4 Looper as not being FAT16, you should format your card and start over. See Format Instructions below. (Also attached) MAC: FORMAT SD CARD TO FAT16 1. Insert card into Mac via SD card reader 2.

Application Q: How do I record from both the Guitar and Mic inputs at the same time on the JM-4 Looper? A: You can only record from either the Guitar input or the Mic/Aux input using the Record Select button on the left side of the pedal, but not both at the same time. The AUX input can be routed to be recorded in conjunction with either the Guitar input for guitar amp and effect processing, or the Mic input with the vocal processing effects by holding down the Record Select button, then selecting your routing option from the screen. Known Issues -Quick Capture = Hold the UNDO switch and then hold down REC switch (not REC + UNDO as it is silkscreened on the unit). In other words, first step on UNDO switch and keep it held down while also stepping on REC switch. -The "Clip" LED lights up upon powering up the JM-4. This is normal power-up behavior. -Some of the Artist/Song Presets from the original Spider III release were not included in the JM-4 release due to space restrictions. -The Guitar Tone Presets (70's sounds by Song Title) are simply guitar tones. They are not backing tracks. The backing tracks on the JM-4 are original compositions written and recorded by studio musicians specifically for Line 6 Spider Jam and JM-4 products.

  7. 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.
  8. 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

  14. If you are having trouble with one of our four-button stompbox modelers, please try the following. - Use a different guitar, cables, and amp to make sure they are working correctly - Remove all other pedals between your instrument and the amplifier. Ensure that: - The cables you are using to test work correctly by plugging directly from the instrument into the amplifier. - All jacks and nuts on the pedal are tight. - The unit is receiving sufficient power from the correct power supply (Line 6 DC-1 for Tone core pedals, PX-2 for Modeling pedals). Do not use old batteries to test pedals. For Tonecore Pedals: * Lighter taps will set the tap tempo function while a heavier foot motion will activate the pedals on/off function. Make sure that you are activating the switch to turn the pedal on by putting your full weight on the pedal (sometimes it take a while for the actuator switch to be broken in). * Try a different Line 6 module in your dock, and try your module with a different dock to see where the malfunction is. For Stompbox Modeling Pedal (4-Button): Reset the pedal by having the power plugged in and pressing the A & D ('Tap' on the DL-4) button when plugging in the left mono input. If you are still having difficulty you will need to get the unit repaired at an authorized service center. All Line 6 Pedals carry a 12 month parts and labor warranty from the date of purchase. Please take a copy of the dated proof of purchase to ensure the warranty is covered. Product Repair Line 6 Product Warranty
  15. 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.
