  1. Hello, in a recent firmware update for the spider V, a new option was added to the "Global Settings", that gives you the ability to use the phones output as a line output - independent of the internal speaker and the master volume knob. The spider V has also an AUX input jack, which doesn't go through the effects, but goes right into the speaker. In both output modes (line/phones) the aux input still goes into the output jack. It would be really good, if the AUX input could be routed only to the speaker and not to the output jack by another option in the "Global Settings". Could this be implemented through a firmware update? Is there any possibility Line 6 could release such a firmware update? Thanks for your time, Greenscreener
  2. Hello! I am very new to learning guitar, as well as all toys associated with it. I have a Spider V 120W, and just purchased a Firehawk FX. What is the best way to cable my Firehawk to my amp? Is the 4 cable method the best and/or only way? If I have the option to plug in to a sound board directly, can I just skip my amp, and plug my Firehawk via XLR directly to the board? Thank you so much for your help!! :)
  3. Hello, i´m really excited from this AMP but there is still something to improve *imho - Why is it not possible to get tones from the cloud with the PC-Remote-App?? - Recording over USB with dry and wet Signal? - Dry and Wet Signal for the Direct Outs? - PODfarm-Tones not compatible with Spider-Tones. Why? - a record mode for the FBV2 to start/stop/record the Loop with the Pedal I hope there are some Ideas for the next update :)
  4. Got a Spider V 240 combo a week ago - to be honest , the fact that it has Relay receiver built in has made me want this amp for a while but the reviews which ranged from bad to awful put me off (as did the previous spider line) .. I use Valve amps (old Marshall JCMs etc) and have used some serious kit over the years - I like Modelling amps for small gigs and home, I`ve always preferred VOX to to Mustangs, Spiders, Vypyrs and the like and the latest VT100X version was by far the best with models that actually didn`t sound "all the same but with diff EQ and drive" .. I`m open minded and tried the SV 240 in the shop just dialling up patches and it was Dreadful .... I guess being loaded with Patches that sound like 5" hifi speakers with the tweeters disconnected didn`t help .. the much slammed and pretty awful "Chop Suey" patch is wonderful compared to the supposed Bogner Uberschall one which sounded like a chinese no name £25 practice amp with the treble full down ...... so I started from scratch turning all the FX off, choosing an amp I knew well (marshall through a V30 Cab) and some PEQ to suit the amp being on the floor and a closed back 2X12 and was dumbstruck at how good the thing sounded , added a touch of hall reverb and away ............. did the same with a Fender black face model through the amps own cab model , chose a suitable mic and a touch of reverb -- superb , comparable with the real thing ! . made a Dual Rec (again through the V30 4X12 cab - the "Treadplate" cab sounds like there`s a blanket over it) and Yup - superb ........ all this was within 30 mins of seeing the amp and from the front panel .. I bought it along with the FULL G10 kit , this is worth the extra so you can use the TX with other amps and use the SpiderV while you`re charging the TX - Found out later that the only way to update the G10 TX is through the receiver base , it won`t update from the amp (Doh !!) .. So a week later and I`m still knocked out with the amp even as a gig tool but at a total loss as to why they even bothered to put any presets in it whatsoever, they really are as dreadful as the reviews claim, that bad in fact that I got the impression they were made by someone trying to sabotage sales of the amps !! , I bet they have too ........ I`m finding that like Kemper, AXE-FX , Helix etc, this thing relies on PEQ to get the most from it - not a bad thing when you`ve worked out how to use it properly , a 20 band graphic would have been more intuitive of course but would `t be much fun to use from the panel ...... absolutely love the Variax model which almost turns a single coil strat or Tele etc into a dreadnaught acoustic when the neck or neck and middle/Bridge are used - PEQ again to model the body of the guitar .. Wishes are a more traditional pitch shifter (one you can add to the Acoustic modelling to make a 12 string for instance) -- more controls on the Synth option like the old Boss GT5 had - a "compare" button so you can hear the difference you`ve made to your patch ------- oh and an option to simply Format the Amp of all those dreadful presets ;)
  5. Hi all! Just wonder why Line6 didn't allow us to make record using mobile app. If we connected our phone/tablet to the amp why do not use USB recording? Personally, I do not need full-option DAW but I would like to record my play. Moreover, I would like to use my mobile/tablet as a source of drum loops or backing track through mobile app. Any chance we could get these options in the future?
  6. So I hate to sound like a broken record but... I was using our Spider V 240 on Friday and it was working great. Its not been touched over the weekend; came back today and there is no sound coming out of it from the line socket. I can still get drum sounds to come out so the cab is not blown but not sure where to go from here. I have updated the firmware, tried multiple factory resets, checking FX settings for wah pedals, I tried plugging headphones but nothing seems to be happening. I need to use the amp soon for a number of big performances... please help!
  7. mine's off about a quaerter step. cant find the secret to calibrating it
  8. Please forgive if this is a stupid question, but... I own a Spider V 120 and am thinking about upgrading to a Helix LT or even a Helix Floor (with the Powercab 112 Plus Active). I'm floundering a bit, and was wondering if I could somehow take the many tones that I've downloaded or made for my Spider V, stored in the Spider Remote App... into the Helix to get me going? (Or do I have to re-make tones for myself in the Helix, or buy them in the many advertised tone packs?)
  9. I know by default when you plug in an external cabinet the speakers in the head switch off. Is there any supported method of allowing the built-in speakers to continue working even when connected to a cabinet? I'm sure I'm not the first idiot to think of this, but I'd like to use the head as a close monitor, with a cabinet pointed at FOH.
  10. Hi everyone, I recently started a new band and I was thinking of getting a head and a cab for band practice. Then I saw this Spider V 240HC. Just wondering if it's loud enough by itself for a full band practice without a cabinet? Cheers.
  11. I am confused after reading the manual for the Spider V 240HC. What I am looking for is a way to power a single 2x12 cab with the head. My cab is a Blackstar HTV212, 160 watts, 8ohms. I was afraid the amp's 240-watt output would overpower the cab. But then I read the manual and thought maybe there's a way. Here's what I read: "Connect your external speaker(s) here. Your speaker cabinet(s) should support at least 100 watts @ 4 Ohms or 50 watts @ 8 Ohms minimum." So does that mean I can connect a single 100 watt @ 4 Ohm cab or a single 50 watt @ 8 Ohm cab to the 240HC? Also the fact that there's a 2x12 version of the Spider V 240. So it makes me think there's got to be a way to power my cab with this head. Now, before people start suggesting a different setup, here's why I am doing this. So feel free to ignore this last part. I have a Blackstar HT Stage 60 2x12 combo amp and I use that to also power the HTV 212 cab so I have basically a half stack for gigs, and a combo for band practice. So I was thinking if I had the Spider V head, I could have a modular system where I use only the head for bedroom practice, the head + one 2x12 cab for band practice (don't want to lug a 4x12 to every practice), and the head + two 2x12s to make a half stack for shows. I wish Line 6 would've thought of this and created a Spider V 2x12 instead of just the 4x12 cab.
  12. Hi. I've been trying to record the amp via the USB connection straight into my PC then into Cubase LE. But I get sound from the amp and from my computer speakers, and the sound from the computer speakers are delayed just a bit. I'm assuming that since we get a copy of Cubase LE that this is all supposed to work correctly. So what am I doing wrong? Are we supposed to use a recording interface? And if so, how do you connect the Spider amp to it? Confused.
  13. I'm about to pick up a Spider V 240HC on craigslist for cheap, and probably pair it with my spider valve cabinet (v30's). I understand the spider cabs have brighter speakers than the v30s in general. Some rumors are that they use G12P-80's (which seem to also be called Seventy-80s?), and there are some comparison videos on YT of the two. They're much brighter overall. Does anyone know what speakers are really in the Spider V's? Does anyone know if the spider is compensating for the speaker frequency response of their expected speakers, to try to make it "flat"? I'm curious how full range this will really be using the head with the V30 cab vs the regular V cab. I'm also considering picking up a Seismic Audio empty 212 cab or something, and putting in the same speakers - so I can have a smaller rig when I want. It's too bad L6 doesn't have a 212 extension cab for this. Maybe down the road.
  14. Hey guys, I bought the Spider V30. Now I have the following problem with setting, programming. In the remote program, I find the amplifier etc. with for example the abbreviation Small Tweed, if I now have the programming only on the Spider V I have other names in the display. Since I do not always carry the spider to the PC or can connect and even with my phone is not on the Internet, I wanted to ask if there is a side of Line 6, where the whole names, etc. with the appropriate amps, effects, etc are listed? On the sound templates, the names are synonymous other than on the amp display, or I did not do that correctly or understood? I start to despair and ask for help. Thank you in advance. If possible, please answer in German
  15. According to this Video, I should be able to record the DI output of the Spider V into my iPhone recorder app simply by being connected to the amp via USB. However, when I do so, the recorder records the mic input on my phone and not the amp output... I can blow on the phone and record that for example. I have the Spider App installed and successfully connect, so that’s working. Is there some setting somewhere that I need to use to switch the recorder app to use the USB input instead? Im using the latest iOS, on iPhone X.
  16. I'd really like to delete most of the presets to simplify selection and then build my custom tones form the ground up. I have remot app on ios and on windows pc. Cant find any delete option so far. Best I've come up with is overwriting existing settings and renaming them, but this isnt really practical as its incredibly time consuming, theres got to be a better way. Any tips?
  17. I registered my amp but never got the Cubase download. How do i get it? Thanks for any help
  18. Can anyone explain to me how in the hell to calibrate the tuner on this thing? I'm trying to play along to solo over backing tracks and the amp says I'm in tune, but I sound out of tune to everything.
  19. I am wanting to upgrade my Pod XT Live and was initially looking at going for an HD500x, but the option of replacing the effects and Amp (Tech 21 Power Engine) with a Spider V 120 plus FBV 3 Shortboard came up. Will this give me the same functionality / range of amp and effects as an HD500x + amp ? I use this for gigging primarily so being both light and robust as well as sounding great are the key criteria. Also its really important to be able to easily select different stored patches (I really like the POD XT Live interface for this and am hoping the FBV would provide similar)
  20. Forgive me if this has been addressed elsewhere (I looked but couldn't find the answer). I'm currently using the Relay G10T with my Spider V 120. It works great. It doesn't have a receiver because, apparently, it's already built into the 120. But I'd like to purchase some wireless headphones and was wondering if anyone has any tips on how to reduce interference or latency (if they've even had any problems), or if they use a particular pair of headphones and/or transmitter that work well for them. Any suggestions? Has anyone had any problems using wireless or bluetooth headphones simultaneously with the relay on their Spider V?
  21. Using the Spider V 240 with FBV3 and I I’m trying to loop some riffs over the drum loops. Every time I do I notice my loop will unsync from the drum loop pretty drastically. Are the drum loops all in time to a click when they were recorded or do they vary ever so slightly in tempo? The only other thing I can figure is that my timing is way off with hitting the looper on the FBV3.
  22. Will "Hardware Monitor Level" setting be ever supported by Spider V ? It was extremely handy to turn "hardware" sound off while using DAW for POD HD 500. Right now I'm unable to turn the cab off on Spider and use IRs in DAW instead.
  23. I've looked for this answer and couldn't find it, so forgive me if I missed it. I've just downloaded the Remote software for Windows 10. But before I install it, I was wondering if there was a minimum amount of RAM required for its use, similar to other modeling software. Does anyone know? Also, I downloaded the driver (I saw the link on another post)--is that required also, or does it automatically come with the Remote software or upload when I connect to my amp? (I have a Spider V 120) It would be nice if there were clearer instructions on how to use this. I previously used the Line 6 AX2 212 (so Line 6 and I go way back), which was considerably less complicated, and there were much better instructions. I've already thought about returning my amp several times because of the lack of clear instructions and tutorials. I'm still not totally sold. I have until the end of January to make up my mind. I feel like Line 6 is driving away potential customers, particularly the analog "traditionalists". Cheers x
  24. Can someone please help me get a bass tone for my spider V 60. Yes I know its a guitar amp but my bass amp stopped working and my only option is this amp. Please help me:^(
  25. Hi Everyone, a few days ago i got the Spider V 60 amp i immediately bought a USB cable to use it with Spider V remote. Unfortunately it says No device Connected. I've tried on multiple computers. I've got the latest Drivers installed. I tried Line 6 updater as well, it doesn't show there either. Same for windows own device manager. I am at a loss and reinstalling drivers and software doesn't seem to change anything. Any suggestions?
