  1. looper is recording at very low volume, can't turn up the playback. any help?
  2. how do you make the loop longer than 15 seconds!? can the length of the recording time be made longer?
  3. Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and I just got a DT50 212 Combo to join my POD HD500X and I need some advice. I want to Loop with distortion for in a live concert. I mean, Record a Rhythm with Distortion, Loop it, and Solo over with Distortion. Just like Paul Gilbert does in this video (at 1:47): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc0yCiCvy6Y He uses an AB pedal to switch between 2 amps, one for Rhythm and another amp for Solo. Can I do this with one HD500X and just one DT50 212 Combo? Or do I need to buy another DT50 212 Combo? Or maybe one DT50 Head and use the speakers of the DT50 212 Combo? Is it possible at all? If not what's your advice for playing live with loops? Backing tracks? Thanks in advance. Pedro
  4. If I have a gain-y pedal in the FX loop of my HD500, turning the FX Loop off causes the noise level to go up. Specifically I'm using a Bogner Red pedal, and I'm trying to use my HD500 into the power amp of a Fender Deluxe. I'd like to be able to assign the FX Loop and a preamp on the HD500 to A/B, so I can go from a medium gain modeling preamp to the high-gain Bogner with one footswitch. GTR -> HD500, pregain FX - FX out - Bogner red - FX in - HD500 preamp* - post gain FX - main out - Power Amp In Pod set to Combo Pwr Amp So far I've confirmed: The noise is coming from the pedal being in the FX loop. Turning the pedal off always gets rid of the hiss. Patching the FX loop into itself does not cause hiss. Pedal straight into amp does not cause hiss** Hiss happens when the fx loop is set to both line and stomp levels. The hiss goes down when set to stomp, but so does the volume of the pedal (which is no good as I'm using it as a preamp). The hiss also happens if I have BOTH the FX loop and amp enabled but turned off. It does NOT happen if I have either one disabled. *The HD500 modeling preamp and the Bogner red are set to never be on simultaneously. **Unless I have the gain cranked, and even then it causes significantly less hiss than if in the FX loop.
  5. Using Pod Farm as a plugin, can I insert a hardware send and return in my signal path? I want to add physical pedals at various points of the signal flow. Thanks, Dennis
  6. I am still learning stuff on my Pod HD500 and one question that I have is regarding the use of the HD500 as a midi controller. Basically, would it be possible to use the pedal to control loops from a PC while still using the effects from the pedal? Any help at all would be greatly appreciated! :)
  7. Hey there, I have this question about the looping function on the HD500x. Don't know if this is the right place to post it but anyway.. I tried playing a bit with my looper which I'm new too. So I tried for example recording a loop in clean sound and than go over it with a metal kinda sound (this is just an example). But what my pod hd500x does is change the entire sound of what I recorded with loop to a metal sound when I select that sound. I was wondering how I can record a loop in for example clean sound and than for example record another layer with a different type of sound and so on. I hope that someone can help me out here. Thnx.
  8. Hi, I'm very much enjoying my DT25 head and POD HD500. I also use it in conjunction with a couple of pedals in front of the HD500 and couple in the FX loop (e.g Strymon delay post preamp) I am considering buying a second DT25 head - so I can really get presence on stage, either with two amps running the same tone, or two totally different amps models (e.g. Twin and Divided by 13). However, if I connect the 2nd DT25 via L6 link from the first DT25, and if I use a foot pedal (e.g. Fulltone OCD) in front of POD HD500, then will both amps take on the sound of e.g. the Fulltone OCD (because it is at the front of the signal chain)? Or, is there a way to route connections within the POD HD 500 that means that I am able to run the amps clean/dirty, completely independently of each other, and crucially, that the second DT25 won't be affected by the pedals in front of the first DT25? How would I do this? I'm assuming I have to set up two FX loops, one in the HD500 pre amp models, the second fx loop using the loop on the back of the amps? Or can I have more than one loop in the HD500 pre/post amp model? (Although I don't have enough loop connections in the HD500 do I?) Thanks, Ben see attached diagram
  9. Zur deutschen Version. La version française. DT50/DT25 Terminology FAQ Headroom: how much signal “room” you have before encountering distortion, particularly saturation. If you have more headroom, the amp will feel like it responds to your playing subtleties better and you’ll have more dynamic range for expressive playing. With less headroom, you get into serious distortion without playing as hard. Topology: the layout of a “feedback topology” of the amp circuit referring to the voicing of the global negative feedback of the DT50. Changing circuits will change the voicing of the amplifier. Class A: an amp design where current is flowing through the tubes constantly. Headroom is deceased, so tone becomes distorted sooner. Class AB: an amp design where a pair of tubes work together by “trading” duties (one is conducting current while the other is in cutoff). Sometimes the term “push-pull” operation is used to describe this mode. Provides greater headroom and tone remains clearer as a result. Bias: the voltage value between the control grid (grid #1) and the cathode, which dictates the power tube’s behavior in terms of distortion cutoff/saturation. There are two types of biasing methods: fixed-bias and cathode-bias (sometimes called self-biasing or auto-biasing). The DT50 operates in fixed-bias when in Class AB. It switches to cathode-bias when in Class A. Pentode: the power output tube is a 5-electrode object (cathode, control grid, screen grid, suppressor grid and anode/plate). In the DT50, when you select “Pentode” mode, you’re operating the EL34’s as pentode tubes. Triode: a mode of operation where the power tube has 3 active elements (cathode, control grid and the anode/plate). Setting the front panel control switch of the DT50 to “Triode” alters the behavior of the EL34’s to act more like a triode, which reduces the power output and affects the high end as well. Negative Feedback Loop (NFL): a certain amount of the amplifier’s output is fed back into the amp to reduce distortion and increase headroom. A higher amount of NFL results in a tighter response overall, which some guitarists may be seeking in their tone. A lesser amount of NFL can make the amp feel more “wild” and “unruly”, which can be also desirable to many guitarists. It depends on what you’re after and the context of what you’re after, musically-speaking. Tonestack: the EQ-region inside of an amp where the Bass, Mid and Treble controls live. Sag: the response of the amp to what is being played on the electric guitar, usually heard at the beginning of playing a note or chord that follows a rest. Sag will cause the amp to get a bit quieter, while also causing more distortion. DT50/DT25 FAQ Headroom: Der Headroom beschreibt den maximalen Spielraum, den Sie haben bevor es im Verstärker zu Verzerrung und Übersteuerung kommt. Mehr Headroom bedeutet, dass der Verstärker einen größeren dynamischen Bereich abdeckt auch während ausdrucksstarkem Spielen. Weniger Headroom wiederum bedeutet, dass es früher und öfter zu Verzerrungen kommen wird ohne hart zu spielen. Topology: Das Layout der Schaltung des Verstärkers. Die Änderung dieses Layouts wird den Klang des Verstärkers verändern. Class A: Bei diesem Layout fließt Strom kontinuierlich durch die Röhren. Headroom ist verringert und Verzerrungen treten früher auf. Class AB: Bei diesem Modell arbeiten beide Röhren zusammen. „Push-Pull“ wird hier oft im Englischen als Beschreibung verwendet. Das Resultat ist ein vergrößerter Headroom sowie klarerer Ton. Bias: Die Anzahl Volt zwischen Steuergitter und Katode. Bias steuert das Verhalten des Verstärkers. Es gibt zwei Methoden für Bias: Eine fixierte Ausrichtung (fixed bias) und die Katodenausrichtung (cathode bias) (auch automatische Ausrichtung genannt). Der DT50 ist im fixierte Ausrichtung Modus in Class AB und wechselt in den automatischen in Class A. Pentode: Die Röhre ist ein 5-Elektroden Objekt (Katode, Steuergitter, Bremsgitter, Schirmgitter und Anode). Im DT50 schalten die EL34 Röhren sich in den Pentode Modus wenn Sie „Pentode“ auswählen. Triode: In diesem Modus hat die Röhre nur 3 akive Elemente (Katode, Steuergitter und Anode). Wenn Sie das Gerät auf „Triode“ eisntellen wird die EL34 mehr wie eine Triode verhalten. Sie erhalten weniger Output und die Höhen werden auch beeinflusst. Negative Feedback Loop (NFL): Ein Teil des Outputs eines Verstärkers wird wieder zurück in den Verstärker gespeist um Verzerrung zu vermindern und den Headroom auszudehnen. Mehr NFL bedeutet eine bessere Reaktion und weniger NFL resultiert in einem wilden und unbändigem Ton. Es kommt aber darauf an, was Sie persönlich mögen. Tonestack: Der Teil des EQs in dem sich die Eisntellungen für Bass, Mitten und Höhen befinden. Sag: Die Reaktion des Verstärkers auf das was Sie auf einer elektrischen Gitarre spielen. Sag kann man meist am Anfang einer Note oder eines Akkordes hören. Der Verstärker wird ein wenig leiser und verursacht mehr Verzerrung. DT50/DT25 FAQ Headroom: Si un ampli a beaucoup de Headroom, ca veut dire que cet ampli garde un son clair avant de rencontrer de la distorsion et une saturation sonore. Jouer l’ampli se sent comme vous avez beaucoup plus de gamme dynamique. Si vous jouez sur un ampli avec moins de headroom, vous obtenez des distorsions graves sans jouer aussi fort. Topology: La disposition du circuit dans l’ampli. Changer cette disposition change le son de l’ampli. Class A: Une topologie où le courant circule constamment à travers les lampes. Moins de headroom = distortion plus tot. Class AB: Deux tubes coopèrent. Plus de headroom = le son garde la clarté plus longtemps. Bias: La tension entre grille de commande et cathode. Le bias configure la saturation de la lampe. Il y en a deux modes de bias : bias fixé et bias à cathode. Le DT50 est en mode bias fixé en Class AB et change à bias à cathode en mode Class A. Pentode: Le tube de sortie est un objet avec 5 électrodes: Cathode, grille de commande, grill écran, grille d’arrêt et anode. Sur le DT50 si vous sélectez « Pentode » les tubes EL34 sont en mode penthode. Triode: Le tube de sortie a trois éléments: Cathode, grille de commande et anode. Si vous mettez le DT50 en mode Triode, les EL34 agirent plus comme des Triodes. Puissance de sortie réduite et Triode affecte les sons de haute. Negative Feedback Loop (NFL): Une certaine quantité de la sortie du ampli est réintroduit dans l’ampli pour réduire la distorsion et pour ajouter du headroom. Plus de NFL se traduit par une réponse meilleure et moins de NFL vous fournis on ton sauvage et incontrôlé. Le NFL dépends à vos préférences. Tonestack: La région de l’égaliseur dans l’ampli. Les contrôles Basse, Mi et Aigu s’habitent ici. Sag: La réponse de l'amplificateur à ce qui est joué sur la guitare électrique. Normalement, vous l’entendez au début de la note. Sag provoque de la distorsion. DT50/DT25 FAQ
  10. Q: I can only hear the delay. I cannot hear the original, dry notes. I've reset the factory presets, and nothing seems to work. A: It sounds like you're in Mix Mode "Loop". To solve that please do the following: 1. Press MIDI/Sys 2. Turn the Program knob until the Display shows "MX" 3. Turn the Time knob until the display shows "PROG" That should allow you to set the dry/wet ratio on each individual program. If you picked the unit up used, you might also want to download a copy of the EchoPro Manual for future reference. Q: How does the loop sampler work? A: The Echo Pro features a Loop Sampler model with 60 seconds of loop time in normal mode and 2 minutes of loop time at Half-Speed. Note on DRIFT: There is no midi clock sync between two Echo Pro units in loop mode. There will be some drift between the loops if they are playing indefinitely. If they only play for a short time there should not be too much of a sync problem without the Midi clock sync. We have not run a test and found out exactly how long it would take for the loops to fall out of sync. However a good estimate would be somewhere in the range of 3-4 minutes before you notice some difference in clock rates between the two loops.
  11. Q: Can I go direct from the Vetta to a recording console or PA system? A: Yes,the Vetta II can be used with or without speakers in a studio or live performance application directly through the board. Page 4.32 of the Vetta II Pilot's Handbook it describes how to turn the outside speaker cabs off in order to use the head to run direct. The second page that comes up from the Output Setups button lets you turn both the internal and any external speaker cabs off. When you have turned the speakers off, the Master Volume Control sets the level for the direct outs. Q: How do I hook up an external effects processor to my Vetta? A: While we've tried to anticipate all of your effects needs, you may still want to use other effects with Vetta. That's okay, we won't be upset. Obviously, if you've got actual physical world stompboxes you want to use, run them in front of Vetta as you would do with any other amp. If you've got rack mount effects or other devices that work at line level, these can be hooked up in Vetta's effects loop. This loop is switchable (from the front panel or from the FBX foot controller), the on/off state is remembered with each channel that you save, and you can even route the loop either series or parallel. To hook something up to Vetta's loop, you'll need a pair of what are commonly referred to as 'Y' or 'insert' cables. These cables have a 1/4-inch TRS (Tip, Ring, Sleeve) plug on one end, and that splits out to a pair of 1/4-inch TS (Tip, Sleeve) plugs at the other end. You'll need one of these for Vetta's loop send, and one for the return. An effect insert uses these cables to allow input and output signals to both be connected at the one jack. If Vetta had an effect insert (like many mixing boards do), you'd jack the TRS end of a single one of these cables in this insert, then one of the split ends of the cable would go to the effect's input and the other would go to the effect's output. But as the picture shows, we're not doing that. Once you've got your external effects hooked up, press the LOOP button as needed to get the loop turned on. The next step is to set up the send and return levels for the loop. Press the Edit button. If the Loop page isn't showing already, press the Loop Button and it will be. You'll see something along these lines: The left most knobs, labeled Amp1/L Send and Amp 2/R Send control your signals differently depending on how your loop is routed. You'll want to check out Effect Routing on page 4.17 of your manual in order to get your loop properly set for the particular sonic madness you have in mind. When the loop is first in the chain of post effects or in any parallel routing, the loop sends are getting signals from the discrete outputs of Amp 1 and Amp 2, regardless of how the amps are panned. When it's not first in the post effects signal path, routed in series or chain, the sends are from the left/right outputs of the previous effect. When the loop is routed parallel or chain, set the mix control on the effect in the loop to 100% wet. Use the Return Mix knob on the display shown above to determine how much of the effect you want to hear. If you instead try to run your external effect at something other than 100%, you'll get a bad sonic experience known as 'comb filtering' to audio engineers if the external effect unit is digital, and you'll get your stereo signals collapsing to mono if your external effect unit sums its left/right inputs to mono (as many effects processors do). When the loop is routed series, use the mix control on the effect in the loop to set the mix. No worries about comb filtering here, but if your effect unit sums its left/right inputs to mono (often, the 'direct' signal is summed, even when the 'effect' part of the signal is stereo) then the fancy panning you set up on Vetta may be lost when you hit a chord. Q: What will happen if I connect a mono effect pedal to effect loop of the Vetta Combo? A: The effect from the mono pedal will only effect the "left" side of the signal when panning the signals hard left/right. We reccomend panning the center for both channels if you plan to use a mono effect in the stereo effect loop. Q: How can I get my Heilsound Talkbox plugged with a Vetta Combo? A: In order to use Heil Talkbox with the Vetta, connect a speaker cable from the Vetta's Left Speaker Outputs to the input on the Talkbox. Next, you'll need to customize the speaker leads connected to Vetta's left speaker. Basically, you'll need a cable that has a 1/4" speaker jack on one end (tip +, sleeve -) and two, crimp terminal clips on the other. Connect the 1/4" speaker jack to the Talkbox output and the two, crimp terminals to Vetta's left speaker. Make sure you keep track of which clip is positive and which clip is negative and make sure they are connected to the speaker correctly. If the sound coming from the speaker seems to be strange, you may need to reverse the clips. Connect the Talkbox tube and your microphone to your P.A. (or second amp) as instructed in the Talkbox manual. When connected in this manner you will hear the Talkbox coming out of the P.A. speakers (or second amp) and the amp's normal tone coming from Vetta's right speaker. If you want to mute the amp's normal tone and just hear the Talkbox, you will need to pan the Vetta's amp models all the way to the left, in the Vetta presets that you will be using with the Talkbox. This can be done via the Amp/Cab Details menu, Page 2, Amp Only knobs.
  12. 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
  13. Deutsch Français Q: How do I access the tuner? Spider Tuner FAQs Q: How do I save the Artist/Song presets from the Spider III/IV into the user banks so I can access those presets from my FBV series controller? A: Hold the desired Channel button (A B C D) for two seconds, then use the four-way arrow selector to choose the bank (number) and location (A, B, C or D) where you want to save the preset to. Select the channel button again, and you will see a rapid flash on the channel light to show the preset has been saved. Q: How do I operate the "boost" on the Spider series amplifier? Spider I, II, and III: The Spider Distortion Boost is activated by holding down the “tap tempo” button while rotating the “drive” control above the 12 o'clock position. The B light will illuminate to indicate that the boost is active. Spider IV: The boost feature can be edited by pressing the presets encoder, then using the right/left function on the four-way arrow selector to select “boost”. You can then activate the feature, increase or decrease the amount of boost (up to 8 db), and select “pre” and/or “post”. This can be activated from the FBV Shortboard MK II by the “fucntion 1” button, and the Effect Loop button the FBV Shortboard (Mk I). Q: How do I operate the Noise Gate on the Spider series amplifier? Spider III: Press and hold Tap as you turn the Reverb knob up past twelve o’clock, and you turn on a built-in Noise Gate, which helps to cut down on hiss and noise. When you do this, the Channel D LED comes on to indicate that the Gate is on. Spider IV: The Noise Gate feature can be edited by pressing the “presets” encoder, then using the right/left function on the four-way arrow selector to select “gate”. You can then choose from “Off”, “Gate”, “Noise Reduction”, or “Gate + Noise Reduction”. Use the up/down arrows to select Threshold and Decay, which are adjustable with the Presets encoder. Q: Is there a way to control the amount of effect mix repeats the delay effect makes? Spider I, II, and III: we decided to remove some of the editing capabilities and make it as simple as possible. In addition, we wanted to make it as affordable as possible, and removing some of the edit features was one of the ways that we were able to keep the cost lower. This being the case, you cannot change the delay feedback rate on the Spider. Spider IV: The delay repeats (feedback) can be edited by pressing the presets encoder, turning to “FX3”, the using the up/down arrows to “FdBk”. You can then increase or decrease the amount of feedback by turning the preset encoder, as well as the delay time and mix. Q: Every time I switch to a certain amp model the delay comes on - how can I stop this? Spider I, II, and III: When you select an Amp Model, the Spider automatically sets its tone controls and effects to match that Amp Model. You can disable the auto-FX selection (but not tone control auto-selection), by powering up Spider with the Channel D/Insane button held. Be aware that the auto-selection is re-enabled next time you power up. If you absolutely never want to hear a particular effect (such as delay), you can turn the SmartFX knob to 'Off', then press and hold a channel button until it blinks, and you've saved a new version of the sound, without any effects. Spider IV: The Auto effect feature can be enabled by pressing the presets encoder, then using the right/left function on the four-way arrow selector to select “autoFX”. You can then activate the feature, as well as turn the tap light on/off and set the timer for the display backlight. Q: Why does the tap tempo light always blink? Can I turn the tap tempo light off? Spider I, II, and III 75-150: The tap tempo light shows the tempo of the delay, even if the delay is not active. There is no way to disable the tap tempo light on the Spider I, II, or III Series amplifiers. Spider IV 75-150: The tap tempo light is assignable to the modulation and delay effects, and shows the tempo of the assigned effect. The tap feature can be enabled by pressing the presets encoder, then using the right/left function on the four-way arrow selector to select your effect, then using the up/down arrow to locate “tap”. The tap feature can be enabled or disabled by turning the “presets” encoder, then using the right/left function on the four-way arrow selector to select”setup”. You can then use the up/down arrows to locate “Taplite”, and de-activate the tap light feature by turning the preset encoder. Q: Can I connect my Spider series combo amp (i.e. 15, 30, 75, 120) to an external speaker cabinet? A: No, as there is no external speaker jack to power an external cabinet. The Spider series 150 combo amplifier does have two 8 ohm external speaker outputs that will mute the internal speakers when engaged. See the following link for more cabinet connection information: Line 6 Head and Cabinet Connections Q: How can I record direct the Spider series amp signal directly into a computer? A: You can use the headphone jack as a direct line out to record your Spider series amplifier into any line input on your computer's sound card or audio interface. For sound card connection, you will need a cable with one male stereo 1/4" jack on one end-to plug into the headphone jack of the Spider, and a male 1/8" stereo mini jack-like (the kind on Ipod type headphones) to plug into the sound card. This will work for most computer sound cards, as they often have 1/8" stereo mini inputs and outputs. If you have an audio interface or a professional sound card that have multiple 1/4" inputs, you will need a cable with one male 1/4" TRS (stereo) jack on one end, and two male 1/4" mono jacks on the other end (commonly known as an “insert cable”) to create a stereo image. Take care in setting the output level on your amp: adjust the master volume to get the cleanest and most noise-free sound when the volume control on the toolbar of your computer is on full, with the volume control on your computer speakers set to normal, reasonable listening levels. If you set the output level on your amp too high, the sound will be undesirably distorted. Set it too low and the sound will be noisy. All you need then is some sort of recording software, of which there are many options available. Q: Is there a way to use the POD-Style Out (headphone) jack without disabling the speakers? A: There is no supported way to run both the speakers and the headphone jack at the same time. Q: Can I use an external effects pedal or processor with a Spider series amplifier? A: Effects pedals will almost always work well in front of the Spider series amplifiers. Just be certain that the output level of the external effect is not set too high as it could overload the input of the Spider. Most rack-mount processors are designed for line level use and often don't sound quite right when connected to the front of an amplifier. Q: Can I use a MIDI controller with a Spider amp? A: The Spider series amplifiers do not have MIDI In or Out connections, but the Spider Valve Mark II does have MIDI jacks. We recommend that you use the correct Line 6 controller with your Spider series amplifier. Q: Do any of the Spider Series amplifiers have an effects loop? A: The Spider series (I, II, III, IV) amplifiers are not equipped with an effects loop, but the Spider Valve (I or II) series does have an effect loop. Q: Can I edit/backup my Spider sounds on my computer? A: The Spider IV series amplifier can be edited with the Spider IV Edit Software. The previous Spider series (I, II, III) tone editing must be done on the face of the unit, as there is no computer editor for the earlier Spider series. See the following link for more information on the Spider Edit software: Spider IV Edit (v1.02) FAQs Q: Which controller will work with my Spider series amp? Controller compatibility chart Q: Where can I get replacement knobs/speakers/logos for my Spider amplifier? Line 6 Store Wie kann ich auf den Tuner zugreifen?

Drücken Sie dazu den Function 1 Knopf. Beim FBV Shortboard MkI müssen Sie den Effect Loop Knopf drücken. Wie bediene ich Noise Gate? Spider III: Halten Sie Tap gedrückt während Sie den Reverb Knopf hinten gegen drehen. Dies schaltet das Nosie Gate ein um Rauschen und Zischen zu unterdrücken. Außerdem schlatet sich das Kanal D Licht ein um Ihnen anzuzeigen, dass Noise Gate eingeschaltet ist. Spider IV: Noise Gate kann auf dem Spider IV bearbeitet werden. Drücken Sie den Presets Knopf und wählen Sie dann mit den rechts links Pfeilen Gate aus. Hier können Sie sich dann zwischen Off, Gate, Noise Reduction oder Gate + Noise Reduction entscheiden. Benutzen Sie dann die rauf runter Pfeile um Threshold oder Decay auszuwählen. Diese beiden Einstellungen können Sie dann auch bearbeiten anhand des Preset Knopfes. Gibt es einen Weg, die Menge des Repeats des Effect Mixes, der vom Delay Effekt erzeugt wird zu kontrollieren? Spider I, II und III: Um die Geräte so eifnach wie möglich zu halten, haben wir verschiedene Bearbeitungseinstellungen entfernt. Sie können leider die Delay Feedback Rate nicht einstellen. Spider IV: Drücken Sie den Preset Knopf. Drehen Sie dann aux FX3 und anhand der rauf runter Pfeile wählen Sie FdBk aus. Hier können Sie die Rate, Zeit des Delays und Mix dann selbst einstellen. Wiese blinkt das Tap Tempo Licht? Kann ich es abschalten? Spider I, II und III: Das Licht zeigt das Tempo des Delays an, auch wenn dieser nicht aktiv ist. Sie können dies leider nicht abschalten. Spider IV 75-150: Das Tap Tempo Licht können Sie manuell der Modulation und dem Delay Effekt zuweisen. Es zeigt dann das Tempo des zugewiesenen Effekts an. Drücken Sie dazu den Presets Knopf, benutzen Sie dann die rechts links Pfeile um Ihren Effekt auszuwählen und dann die rauf runter Pfeile um Tap zu finden.

Mit dem Preset Knopf können Sie jetzt das Licht an oder ausschalten. Kann ich mein Spider Combo an eine externe Box anschließen? Nein, es sind keine Ausgangsjacks vorhanden, um Boxen anzuschließen. Das Spider 150 Combo hat zwei 8 Ohm Ausgänge, die die internen Lautsprecher stumm stellen, wenn angeschlossen. Line 6 Head and Cabinet Connections Wie kann ich das Ausgangssignal meines Verstärkers direkt in den Computer spielen? Sie können den Kopfhörerausgang als Line Out benutzen und an einen Stereo In Ihres Computers anschliessen, wie z.B. eine Soundkarte oder eine Audio Schnittstelle. Für die meisten Soundkarten brauchen Sie ein Kabel mit ¼“ männlich für an den Verstärker zu 1/8“ männlichen für an den Computer. Dies wird für die meisten Computer funktionieren, da der größte Teil der Soundkarten einen 1/8“ Eingang haben. Wenn Sie eine Audio Schnittstelle oder eine professionelle Soudkarte haben, die mehrere ¼“ Eingänge haben, dann brauchen Sie ein 1/4“ x2 mono zu ¼“ x1 stereo um Stereo Audio zu erhalten. Achten Sieaber bitte auf das Ausgangslevel des Verstärkers, Sie können so den Master Volume einstellen denn wenn dieser zu hoch eingestellt ist, dann wird der Sound verzerrt und wenn er zu niedrig ist, dann wird der Sound rauschen. Zu guter Letzt brauchen Sie dann noch eine Aufnahmesoftware. Kann ich den Kopfhörerausgang auch benutzen ohne die Lautsprecher abzuschalten? Nein, beides kann nicht gleichzeitig laufen. Kann ich ein externes Effekt Pedal oder einen Przessor benutzen? Effekt Pedale werden fast immer funktionieren, achten Sie einfach auf den Ausgang des Pedals, da dieser den Verstärker überladen kann. Die meisten Rack Prozessoren sind für Line Level entworfen und hören sich daher nicht richtig an, wenn man sie an den Verstärker anschließt. Kann ich einen MIDI Controller mit dem Spider Verstärker benutzen? Die Spider Verstärker haben weder MIDI Ein- noch Ausgang. Der Spider Valve Mark II jedoch hat einen. Wir empfehlen die Nutzung eines Line 6 Pedals. Haben die Spider Verstärker einen Effects Loop? Nein, nur die Spide Valve MkI sowie MkII haben einen. Kann ich Sounds, die auf meinem Spider sind auf meinem Computer abspeichern oder bearbeiten? Den Spider IV Verstärker können Sie anhand der Spider IV Edit Software bearbeitet werden. Bei allen anderen Spider wird die Tonbearbeitung direkt vorne am Verstärker durchgeführt, da diese keine Edit Software haben.

Ce n’est pas possible de changer cette fréquence. Spider IV : Poussez l’encodeur Presets, choisissez FX3 et utilisez les flèches pour choisir FdBk. Ici vous pouvez augmenter et diminuer cette fréquence en tournant le bouton Preset. Le delay se lance automatiquement si j’utilise un preset spécifique, comme puis-je arrêter ca ?

Vous pouvez désactiver et activer Top ici avec l’encodeur Preset. Utilisez les flèches gauche/droite pour choisir Setup. Maintenant vous pouvez aussi chercher pour Taplite et désactiver la lumière en tournant l’encodeur Preset. Puis-je connecter mon ampli Spider combo (15, 30, 75, 120) à un baffle externe ? Non, parce qu’il y en a aucun jack pour un baffle externe. La combo Spider 150 a deux sorties pour un haut-parleur externe avec 8 ohms. Cette option assourdie les haut-parleurs intégrés. Line 6 Head and Cabinet Connections Comment puis-je enregistrer le signal de l’ampli Spider directement dans mon ordinateur? Vous pouvez utiliser le jack de casques comme Line Out pour enregistrer votre ampli Spider dans n’importe quelle entrée Line de votre ordinateur pour une connexion, vous avez besoin d’un câble 1/4’’ mâle stéréo à jack 1/8’’ mâle stéréo pour connecter à la carte son du ordinateur. Ça fonctionne avec la plupart des cartes sons parce qu’une plupart de ces cartes ont une entrée 1/8’’. Si vous avez une interface audio ou carte son professionnelle avec plusieurs entrée 1/4", vous avez besoin d’un câble 1/4" stéréo à 2x 1/4’’ mono pour recevoir du audio stéréo. Faites attention au niveau de sortie de l’ampli pour recevoir du audio propre et sans bruit. Si vous mettez le niveau de sortie de l’ampli trop fort, le son sera déformé. Mettez le niveau trop faible et le son sera bruyant. La dernière chose que vous avez besoin est un logiciel d’enregistrement audio pour l’ordinateur. Y a-t-il la possibilité d’utiliser une sortie jack sans désactiver les haut-parleurs ? Malheureusement pas. Puis-je utiliser un pédale effet ou processeur externe avec l’ampli Spider ? Les pédales effets fonctionneront presque toujours bien avec les amplis Spider mais ne mettez le niveau de pédale trop fort pour ne pas surcharger l’entrée de l’ampli. Les processeurs en rack souvent ne sonnent pas bien dans un ampli. Puis-je utiliser un contrôleur MIDI avec un ampli Spider ? Les amplis Spider n’ont aucune connexion MIDI. Seulement le Spider Valve Mark II a des connecteurs MIDI. Nous recommandons d’utiliser le contrôleur correct de Line 6 avec les amplis Spider. Ont-ils on Effects Loop ? Non, les amplis Spider I, II, III et IV n’ont pas de Effects Loop mais les amplis Spider Valve ont un Loop. Puis-je éditer ou sauvegarder mes sons sur mon ordinateur ? Vous pouvez faire tous ca sur le Spider IV avec le logiciel Spider IV Edit. Vous devez éditer les sons des autres amplis directement sur l’ampli.
