  1. So I think I might know what it is, but I accidentally left my amp on when I left my house for vacation, when coming back a week later, the amp wouldn't power on. I found that the tube fuse was just fine, but the main power fuse was blown, so I got a replacement fuse, replaced it, blew again, I have 3 line 6 cabinets, all different speaker configurations, so I tried another cabinet, and the fuse blew again. What I think is, that the transformer is going out, but I see this might be a common thing for this amp? I mean, lets be honest I, ME, MYSELF left the damn amp on for what could have been a week, and it could have blown something. But if someone could point me in the right direction for troubleshooting, or where to buy a replacement and I can just do it myself? Thank you! Hetrickaj
  2. I had the strangest thing happening to me today. I went to my band rehearsal and after playing for about 30 minutes the display screen kept jumping from the signal chain to the knob display as if I was a adjust a knob on the HD500X. I'm connected to my DT25 via the L6 link and my JTV via the VDI cable. I had previously been using this set up with my HD500 for at least a year and had no issue. I even used this same setup and cords 3 weeks ago without issue. If I disconnect the L6 link it's fine (of course I have no sound though.) When I the screen changes it actually shows that he Mid has been turned all the way up. I can move it back and then when the screen flashes it has moved back to 99%. This happens across the board on the patches. I even swapped out cords and same thing. Now the venue makes me a a custom snake that has my power supply extened, 1/4" and L6 cable loomed to together as one cord. I'm 99% sure it's a regular XLR they used. But I've gotten by for 2 years with it and one show with the HD500X. I have an AES/EBU cable somewhere so I'm going to try that and hope it works. If anyone has had anything simlar and has fixed it with some sort of hard boot or firmware upgrade/reload please let me know. I have 3 gigs this weekend and I need to come up with a plan B if swapping the cord for AES/EBU doesn't solve it. I practiced all day today with just the HD hooked up to my PC so I definitely know it has something to do with the Link. And yes I tried numerous times of turning both the amp and pod off and on again. Thank you, Dave
  3. Hello, I didn't got replies from the DTedit author, so I post the link to the OSX version I've compiled today of his brilliant software. Some tweaking was necessary, so we must give a try and return some feedback. On my systems, win and mac, dtedit was not working. I've added a sysex identifying request after any Control Change message sent, and this works for me. I will try to compile the same code for Win32 very soon. Let me know! Flavio Ronco Torino, Italy. Download DTeditOSX.dmg file size: 22 MB ::UPDATE: I've updated the package, there was a wrong set of library files included. Please re-download it and give a try.
  4. Hello, today i was practicing at low volume and jumped out of my bench when i heard a loud pop sound coming from the speakers(?), i tested every switch after i heard it, everything seems to works, power valves seem ok, the amp seems to be working fine... But it can't be nothing right? Help? Im kinda worried, spent my savings on the amp secound hand and i don't want to brake it..
  5. I recently purchased a used DT50. When trying to find out if needed a firmware update, I was unable to get Line 6 Monkey to recognise the amp. I tried a different MIDI interface, with no success. I am able to receive MIDI signals from the DT50, for example, the channel selector sends CC19, but I cannot get the DT50 to recognise the same CC when I send it via MIDI controller to it. Now, I know my way around the insides of a tube amp (discharging caps, etc), and would like to diagnose further why the MIDI input isn't working rather than having to send it in for (costly?) repair. Looking at the I/O PCB, it looks like the optocoupler is a likely candidate - are those known to fail? Other than this and the connectors between the I/O and the digital board, are there any other components that I should be checking?
  6. I've looked around, but I haven't seen any videos (or much of anything) where somebody directly compares a Helix w/ Powercab(s) against the HD series w/ DT Amps. I have seen the Helix direct compared to mic'd amps, but I'm really curious to hear the two "Dream Rigs" battle it out. Anybody else?
  7. Hi all, Bought my Helix floor a year ago and I love it. Been using it primarily together with Powercab and have been quite satisfied so far. But sometimes it feels like I’m missing that tube feel. I had an DT50 combo earlier that I sold but remembered how great it was so I got myself a DT25 head instead now. Now I’m trying to figure out how to get the Helix to work with the DT... I have connected the Helix to the DT via the L6 Link and got sound through the amp. So far, so good... But when shifting to different amp models, nothing happens in the DT? No changes in the topology whatsoever? And I can’t find any easy to understand description anywhere. I guess there are some settings that I haven’t figured out, so if someone in here can help me out I would be greatful!!!
  8. 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 Ãœbersteuerung 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. “žPush-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 “žPentode” auswählen. Triode: In diesem Modus hat die Röhre nur 3 akive Elemente (Katode, Steuergitter und Anode). Wenn Sie das Gerät auf “žTriode” 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. HELLO! So a few months ago my DT50 212 combo died. I mean super died. There's no more parts left for this tone monster of an amp... I LOVED that amp! What I really loved about it was I could daisy chain it to my DT50 head sitting on my 4x12 via the L6 link. So I could get a great stereo field separation from my HD500x or Helix going to a daisy chained DT50 combo 212 which fed into my DT50 head 4x12. So instead of buying another DT50 combo to replace the dead one - I got the power cab 212+. Admittedly, it's pretty nice on it's own or with the Helix. What I cannot seem to do is get these two amps (DT50 head and Powercab 212+) to daisy chain to each other by the L6 link. Doesn't matter which order - - the furthest in the chain never gets signal. Any ideas on this? Or is there no hope of having the PC212+ be able to do what my old DT50 combo used to be able to do... unless I get another powercab (ugh). Page 23 & 24 of the manual describe how to daisy chain Powercabs.. but nothing else. So I'm thinking I know my answer. :( but was reaching out for some hope. Lemme know your thoughts and thanks all!
  11. I just bought a DT50 and am waiting for it's arrival, and though I've looked I've not found an answer to this question: Do effect blocks after the amp model on an HD500X preset act like they are in the effects loop of the DT amp or are they all placed in front of the amp's preamp?
  12. Zur deutschen Version. La version française. Please read through the DT50/DT25 Terminology FAQ first, to familiarize yourself with the terms that will be referenced here. Application Q: Are there any presets on the DT50/DT25 amplifier in the manner of previous Line 6 amps? A: No. The DT50/DT25 behaves like a traditional amp where the user simply dials in a tone to the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) functionality. Q: Are the DT50/DT25 amplifiers Mono(phonic)? A: As with most tube amplifiers, yes. Q: Which type of amp modeling is using with the DT50/DT25? A: Line 6's newest HD amp models (same as our new POD HD). Q: How does the power amp tubes contribute to the DT50/DT25's sound? A: The EL34's (DT50) or EL84's (DT25) are the main source of distortion in the amp. The guitar signal is actually being amplified at every progressive stage in the circuit, but the power tubes are the first to truly "clip" and provide the distortion that most tube amp devotees desire. Q: How does the modeling of the DT50/DT25 contribute to the overall tone? A: In the DT50/DT25's "normal mode", the modeling performs the function of the preamp: mating the digital preamp with the analog power amp so the whole system creates the sound of the amp modeled. This is different than our previous Spider Valve amps, where we modelled the entire amp model (pre-amp and power amp) and then fed that signal through the output tube power section. In "low power mode" (pulling the master volume switch out on the DT50 or on the DT25 flipping the switch on the back panel), the digital modeling section will assume duties for the power amp section and the Master Volume has been scaled so that you can have the sound of a driven power amp at lower monitoring volume levels. If you turn the master volume knob all the way up in this mode, you will have Spider Valve-like tones behavior (where the pre and power amp software modeling signal is pushing the EL34 or EL84 tubes). In both Normal and Low Power modes, cabinet modeling is applied to the output signal fed to the power tubes. When using a POD HD device connected via L6 Link, you must use the default cabinet model that is recalled on the POD HD 'pre' amp model when using the L6 Link connection with the DT amp to get the same type of sound as using the DT amplifier by itself with the same amp model. Lastly, when using Low Volume Mode on the DT amp with a POD HD connected via L6 Link, the sound of a 'Pre' amp model selected on the POD preset will sound slightly different if an identical amp model is selected on the DT amplifier (on Channel B ). This is because when using the Low Volume Mode on the DT amp with L6 Link, Channel A on the DT amp with the POD modeling is still using the just the PRE amp model with the scaled Master Volume knob, whereas Channel B on the DT amp uses the preamp AND power amp modeling with the scaled Master Volume. The inclusion of the power modeling is what makes it sound differently. Q: What is the difference between the DT25 and the DT50 amplifier? A: The DT25 operates at 25 watts maximum output using two (2) EL84 power tubes vs. the EL34's found in our DT50's. Otherwise, it is essentially the same as its big-brother, the DT50. For more info, please check the new product page for the DT25 here. DT50/DT25 Voicings Switch I Negative Feedback Loop (NFL) setting is high; channel control behavior much like that of a West Coast American amp of the 1960s. Recommended settings: Class AB & Pentode. II NFL is medium; channel control behavior much like that of a classic British amp of the 1960s known for it's "glassy" yet warm tones. Recommended settings: Class AB & Pentode. III Zero Negative Feedback Loop operation (a very open/dynamic feeling amp); channel control behavior much like that of a 'chime-like tone' British amp of the 1960s. Recommended settings: Class A & Pentode (clean) or switch to Triode (for rounder, more vintage feel). IV NFL is low in value, with an added low frequency resonance ideally suited for modern high-gain voicing; channel control behavior much like that of a more recent West Coast American amp of the 1990s. Recommended settings: Class AB & Pentode. Class A & Class AB Switch Class A: Cathode biased. Provides the player with more dynamic with touch sensitivity. DT50 operates at 25 watts. DT25 operates at 10 watts. Class AB: Fixed biased. Provides greater headroom and power than Class A. DT50 operates at 50 watts. DT25 operates at 25 watts. Pentode & Triode Switch Pentode: Clearer tone and more headroom. Triode: Rounder tone, less output and more vintage feel. L6 Link L6 LINK is a proprietary Digital Audio connection developed for exclusive connection between the POD HD series modeling processors and the DT50/DT25 amplifier(s). Do NOT connect any other sort of analog audio device that appears to have a standard 3-pin (XLR) connector to the L6 LINK, as damage will occur. Connect a digital XLR cable (AES/EBU cable) from the POD HD L6 LINK jack directly to the DT amp's L6 LINK IN jack. Most XLR cables should provide sufficient performance, but use a digital XLR (AES/EBU) cable for best performance and signal to noise ratio. When linking two DT amps, all controls including master volume work independently on both amps. The only thing that syncs is the channel switch, i.e. switching the channel on amp A switches it on amp B as well. Specifications DT50 Specifications DT25 Specifications Q: Is there a chart for the amp models of the DT series amps and the POD HD series? A: Yes, there is a .pdf document with this information here. *Please note, most of the amp models on the DT series are only accessible via MIDI. Please reference the following document for information on accessing these models: Using MIDI to Change Amp Settings on the DT50/DT25 Amplifiers Q: What speakers are used the DT50/DT25 amps? A: DT50/DT25 112 Combo has the Celestion custom G12H90 12" speaker. DT50 212 Combo has a Celestion custom G12H90 12" and a Celestion Vintage 30 12" speaker. Q: What tubes ship in the DT50/DT25 amps? A: DT50: Electro-Harmonix 12AX7 preamps tubes (2) and Electro-Harmonix EL34 power tubes (2). DT25: Chinese-branded 12AX7 preamp tube (1) and Electro-Harmonix EL84 power tubes (2). Q: What is the Bias Spec on the DT50's EL34 power tubes? A: 36 mV +/- 1 mV. Q: What is the Bias Spec on the DT25's EL84 power tubes? A: 22 mV +/- 3 mV. Q: What Line 6 controllers work with the DT50/DT25? A: Any of the POD HD series units. They utilize the new proprietary L6 Link (3-pin) digital connection to control amp topology settings in Channel A to whatever parameters are set in the active POD HD patch. There is a jack labelled for "Footswitch" on the back of the amp to allow for switching between Channel A and B. Please use a "tip-sleeve" (mono 1/4") latching-type footswitch to use this feature. Setup/Connection Q: Is there a headphone output on the DT50/DT25 series? A: No. Q: Is there a bias switch to change the power tubes to 6L6's or other tube types? A: No, the DT50/DT25 series do not offer bias-switchable options and were designed to operate with the EL34 (DT50) or EL84 (DT25) power output tubes. Q: Can I run my DT50/DT25 without a speaker load? A: No! You should always run a tube amplifier with a speaker load present. Please follow the properly load connection requirements as silkscreened on the back of the amplifier chassis. Q: Will installing casters on a DT50/DT25 112 or 212 combo chassis void my warranty? A: No, correctly installed casters will not void the warranty. However, if you are not 100% sure on how to correctly install casters, please take your amp to a qualified amp/service technician and have them install the hardware. We do NOT cover damage caused to the amplifier from an incorrect installation! *** Here is a link to one of our Forum Members (MDinice) who was kind enough to share a template for Ernie Ball type casters: http://line6.com/community/thread/57744?tstart=0 (the template is also available at the bottom of this document). Known-Issues 12AX7 Preamp Tube Swapping: If you decide to swap out different 12AX7 preamp tubes, do NOT use anything labeled 'LP' (Long Plate) for the first preamp tube stage (labeled as V3), as 'LP' labeled tubes are extremely microphonic. Q: How do I control the v2.0 update features of the DT25/DT50 amplifier using MIDI? A: We have created a document to help with sending MIDI to your DT amplifier to control the various additional features of the v2.0 update. Please see the following document for these instructions: Using MIDI to Change Amp Settings on the DT50/DT25 Amplifiers Also, here is a link with information on troubleshooting tube amplifiers: Troubleshooting Your Tube Amp Bitte lesen Sie sich zuerst DT50/DT25 Terminology FAQ durch um sich mit den Begriffen bekannt zu machen, die im folgenden Dokument Verwendung finden. Gibt es Presets auf dem DT25/DT50, so wie auf anderen Line 6 Verstärkern? Nein, die DT25/DT50 Verstärker verhalten sich genau wie traditionelle Verstärker. Sind die DT25/DT50 Verstärker Mono? Ja, so wie die meisten Röhrenverstärker. Welche Art Verstärkermodelierung wird bei den DT25/DT50 angewandt? Wir verwenden sie neusten Line 6 HD Verstärkermodelle. (wie im POD HD) Wie tragen die Röhren zum Sound der DT25/DT50 bei? Die EL34 (DT50) und EL84 (DT25) sind die Hauptquelle für die Verzerrung des Verstärkers. Das Signal wird nach und nach im Verstärker verstärkt, aber die Röhren haben hier den größten Einfluss. Sie liefern den ersehnten Verzerrungston, den die meisten Röhrenverstärker haben. Wie trägt das Modelling der DT25/DT50 zum Sound bei? Im „Normal“ Modus übernimmt das Modelling die Funktion des Vorverstärkers. Es führt die digitale Vorverstärkung mit der analogen Endstufe zusammen um den modellierten Sound zu erreichen. Bei unseren alten Spider Verstärkern, im Gegensatz, haben wir den gesamten Verstärker modelliert und dieses Signal durch die Röhren geschickt. Im „Low“ Modus übernimmt das digitale Modelling die Arbeit der Endstufe und der Master Volume Knopf ist so skaliert, dass Sie den Ton einer aufgedrehten Endstufe auch bei niedrigen Abhörlautstärken erreichen. Wenn Sie den Master Volume Knopf hinten gegen drehen erhalten Sie einen Sound der ähnlich klingt wie die Spider Valve Verstärker. In beiden Modi wird das Cab Modelling in den Ausgang gespeist, direkt in die Röhren. Wenn Sie ein POD HD Gerät verwenden, welches via L6 Link verbunden ist, müssen Sie das standard Cab Modell benutzen, welches auf dem POD HD Vorverstärker Modell ist wenn Sie es mit L6 Link an den DT Verstärker anschließen. So erhalten sie den gleichen Ton, den Sie erhalten würden, wenn Sie den DT Verstärker allein mit diesem Modell verwenden würden. Außerdem wird der Ton im „Low“ Modus auf dem DT, wenn dieser per L6 Link an einen POD HD angeschlossen ist und Sie ein Vorverstärkermodell auswählen auf dem POD, etwas unterschiedlich klingen als wenn Sie das Modell sofort auf dem DT auf Kanal A auswählen. Das kommt daher, dass wenn Sie den „Low“ Modus auf dem DT mit L6 Link verwenden der Kanal A auf dem DT mit POD Modelling immer noch nur das Voverstärker Modell mit skaliertem Master Volume verwendet während Kanal B auf dem DT Voverstärker UND Endstufe modelliert. Was ist der Unterschied zwischen DT25 und DT50? Der DT25 hat maximal 25 Watt mit seinen zwei EL84 im Gegensatz zu den EL34 im DT50 mit maximal 50 Watt. DT 50 und DT 25 Stimmungen: I – Negative Feedback Loop (NFL) eingestellt auf High. Die Kanalkontrolle verhält sich wie bei einem West Coast American Verstärker aus den 60er Jahren. Empfohlene Eisntellungen: Class AB & Pentode. II – NFL ist auf Medium eingestellt. Die Kanalkontrolle verhält sich wie ein klassischer britischer Verstärker der 60er Jahre. Empfohlene Eisntellungen: Class AB & Pentode. III – Zero Negative Feedback führt zu einem sehr dynamischen und offenen Verstärkersound. Die Kanalkontrolle wirkt wie bei einem britischen Verstärker der 60er Jahre. Empfohlene Einstellungen: Class A & Pentode oder Triode. IV – NFL auf niedriger Einstellung: Zusätzliche Tieffrequenzresonanz für den modernen High-Gain. Die Kanalkontrolle wirkt wie bei einem neueren West Coast American Verstärker der 90er Jahre. Empfohlene Einstellungen: Class AB & Pentode. Class A & Class AB Schalter: Class A: Gittervorspannung (Cathode Bias). Dynamischerer und empfindlicher. DT 50 läuft hier mit 25 Watt und DT 25 mit 10. Class AB: Fixed Bias: Mehr Headroom als in Class A. (DT50 läuft auf 50 Watt und DT25 auf 25). Pentode & Triode Schalter: Pentode: Klarerer Ton und mehr Headroom. Triode: Runderer Ton mit weniger Ausgangssignalstärke und Vintage Gefühl. L6 Link: L6 Link ist eine Digitale Audio Verbindung von Line 6. Entwickelt exklusiv für den Verbindungsaufbau zwischen POD HD und DT25 sowie DT50 Verstärkern. Verbinden Sie KEIN anderes Gerät mit XLR Anschluss mit L6 Link. Dies kann Schäden hervorrufen. Stecken Sie ein XLR Kabel (AES/EBU) in den POD HD L6 LINK Ausgang und das andere Ende in den Jack Eingang des DT Verstärkers. Die meisten XLR Kabel sollten ausreichend Performance liefern. Sie können aber auch ein digitales XLR Kabel verwenden um die beste Performance zu erreichen. Spezifikationen: DT50 Specifications DT25 Specifications Gibt es seine List der Verstärkermodelle für die Verstärker der DT Serie? Ja. Es gibt ein pdf Dokument hier. Achtung, die meisten Vorverstärkermodelle für die DT Serie können nur via MIDI erreicht werden.

Wir haben ein Dokument erstellt um Ihnen dabei zu helfen: Using MIDI to Change Amp Settings on the DT50/DT25 Amplifiers Und hier noch ein Link mit Informationen zur Fehlerbehebung bei Röhrenverstärkern: Troubleshooting Your Tube Amp Avant de lire ce document familiarisez-vous avec les termes utilisés: DT50/DT25 Terminology FAQ Est-ce qu’il y en a des presets sur les amplis DT25 et DT50 comme pour les autres amplis Line6 ? Non. Le DT25/DT50 se comporte comme un ampli traditionnel. Est-ce que les amplis DT25/DT50 sont monophoniques ? Oui, comme la plupart des amplis a lampes. Quelle modélisation d’ampli est-ce que le DT25/DT50 utilise ? Las modélisation HD la plus nouvelle de Line 6. (Comme notre nouveau POD HD) Comment est-ce que les lampes contribuent au ton de l’ampli ? Les EL34 (DT50) et EL84 (DT25) sont la source primaire pour la distorsion de l’ampli. Le signal de la guitare est amplifié à chaque étape progressive dans le circuit mais les lampes sont les premiers de distordre que la plupart des fidèles d'amplis à tubes désirent. Comment est-ce que la modélisation du DT25/DT50 contribue au ton de l’ampli ? En mode normal du DT25/DT50, la modélisation fonctionne comme le préampli. Il connecte le préampli digital avec l’ampli de puissance analogue pour créer le son d’ampli désiré. C’est différent de nos amplis Spider Valve. Pour ces amplis, nous avons modélisé tout le ampli (préampli et ampli de puissance) et dérivent ce signal à la sortie de l’ampli de puissance à lampes. En mode « low power », la modélisation digitale assumera les fonctions de l’ampli de puissance et le bouton Master Volume est modifié : Un son qui ressemble un ampli de puissance avec une haute entrée qui peut être écouté avec un volume faible du moniteur. Si vous tournez le bouton Master Volume au maximum, vous recevez des tons Spider Valve (le logiciel de modélisation du ampli et préampli utilise les lampes EL34 et EL84). En modes « Low Power » et « Normal » la modélisation est appliquée au signal de sortie envoyé à l’ampli de puissance à lampes. Si vous utilisés un POD HD connecté avec L6 Link vous devez utiliser le modèle de baffle par défaut de du modèle préampli sur le POD HD si vous utilisez une connexion L6 Link avec l’ampli DT pour recevoir le même son si vous utilisez l’ampli DT par lui-même. Finalement, l’ampli a un mode « Low Volume » s’il est connecté à un POD HD via câble L6 Link. Le ton d’un modèle préampli sélecté sur le preset POD sonnera légèrement différente si un modèle identique est sélecté sur l’ampli DT sur canal A parce que en mode Low Volume, canal A sur le DT utilise seulement le modèle préampli avec le bouton Master Volume modifié et canal B sur le DT utilise la modélisation préampli ET ampli de puissance avec le bouton Master Volume modifié. L’inclusion de la modélisation du ampli de puissance est la différence ici. Quelle est la différence entre le DT25 et le DT50 ? Le DT25 a 25 watt maximum et 2 lampes EL84 et le DT50 e 50 watts maximum avec des lampes EL34. Trouvez le DT25 ICI et le DT50 ICI. DT50/DT25 Voicings Switch : I – La configuration de la boucle de rétroaction négative est sur HIGH. Le contrôle du canal fonctionne un peut comme un ampli West Coast American des années 1960. Configurations recommandés : Class AB et Pentode. II - La configuration de la boucle de rétroaction négative est sur MEDIUM. Le contrôle du canal fonctionne comme un ampli anglais classique des années 1960. Configurations recommandés : Class AB et Pentode. III – Aucune boucle de rétroaction négative. Un ampli dynamique Configurations recommandés : Class A Pentode ou Triode IV - La configuration de la boucle de rétroaction négative est sur LOW avec une résonance de fréquence basse pour les tons modernes à haut gain. Le contrôle canal fonctionne comme un des plus nouveaux amplis West Coast American des années 90. Configurations recommandés : Class AB et Pentode. Class A & Class AB Switch: Class A: Cathode bias. Fournit le joueur avec plus de dynamique et de la sensibilité de toucher. Le DT50 fonctionne à 25 watts et le DT25 à 10 watts. Class AB : Fixed biased. Fournit plus d’hauteur de niveau maximum de l’entrée et plus de puissance que Class A. Le DT50 fonctionne à 50 watts et le DT25 à 25 watts. Pentode & Triode Switch : Pentode : Du son clair et beaucoup d’hauteur de niveau d’entrée. Triode : Son ronde avec une sensation vintage. Moins de niveau. L6 Link L6 Link est une connexion Digital Audio propriétaire de Line 6 développé pour une connexion exclusive des produits de Line 6 avec Line 6 Link. Ne connectez pas un autre appareil analogue avec un connecteur XLR standard au Line 6 Link. Dommage se produira.

  13. Hi! I'm sending this message regarding the Variax setup of a friend. First he bought a Line 6 Variax JTV 69S (sunburst strat) and played it through his HD500 pod into a 2x12 clean amp. But he read, heard and saw so many good things about the new Variax equipment that he decided to give it a spin. Over the last year he picked up a DT25 (1x12 combo) and a DT50 (2x12 combo). About a month ago he completed the setup with buying the main processor, the Helix Floorboard. Everything seems to be working fine. We followed the manual while setting up and it's all registrered in his Line 6 account. It's up and running in Monkey 6, line 6 updater and the Helix firmware is updated to the latest version. But we can't get the amplifiers to work from the floorboard. The 69S is connected to the floorboard through Variax Digital Interface cable. Then we hooked up the L6 line from the board to DT25 and then DT50. No result. Then we added the Midi cables (brand Roland black series) from Floorboard out/thru -> DT25 in & DT25 thru -> floorboard in. Just to see if it would work on 1 amp. No result. Plus when changing the pentode/triode switch on the amp it started to make loud burning, crackling, buzzing noises. (I think that was caused by the connection of the L6 AND midi.) We disconnected the L6 link. Also without result. Tried the same with the DT50. After not getting any result we tried to update the amplifier's firmware through midi, but it didn't get recognized. This guide: Everytime we get the same 'undefined error'. Midi device is the Helix Floorboard of course. We have absolutely no idea how to fix this and get the amps to respond to Helix floorboard adjustments. Already tried A/B'ing some settings in the floorboard menu. Hopefully somebody has any idea what can be wrong and how this can be solved. With kind regards! J.
  14. Hi. Long-time dream rig owner first time posting. I've searched through endless pages of knowledge base and forums and have found no information. I am building a custom (matching as close as possible) 1x12 closed back cabinet to match my dt50 1x12 combo. Where would I find exact replacement grill cloth and tolex/vinyl covering ? Thanks in advance.
  15. Directed at those in the know, obviously, but with the upcoming L6 Link integration with PowerCab+ and the DT25/50, I'm curious as to whether we'll be able to mix the two? i.e. DT25 gets left signal, PowerCab+ gets right signal? I suspect the answer is probably yes considering that I believe something similar was possible back in the HD500/DT/StageSource era, but a definitive answer would be awesome.
  16. Hi guys, so happy to see Line 6 has finally given us an integration solution for our DT amps and the Helix platform. I've been a DT user since 2014 with the original Dream Rig, HD-500, DT-25HD, and JTV-69 and I love this amp. When Helix came out I jumped on it immediately. I posted many threads about how the DT could be used with the Helix using midi and the problems that could be encountered along the way. The new integration isn't perfect by any means but it is an 'elegant' solution. I've created a DT Series of Amps User Group on Facebook as a place we can gather to share our experiences and tips and tricks. I don't mean to take away from this great forum but if you are like me and spend a lot of time on FB, I invite you to visit and join if you wish. I've already documented how I've integrated the DT with my Helix and some of the common misconceptions about how it all works. I would love to see what you guys can share over there too as we all learn and grow with the incredible tools we have been given. Cheers!

  17. Hi line 6 family Im trying to fix a dt50 amplifier and i need to know the colour impedance of the secundary wires, from the output transformer Can anyone help me thanks to all
  18. Dear all, In front of me a DT50 guitar amplifier. The problem is that the unit works fine for minutes or hours and then plops and starts to hum at 50hz. The result is no sound. The tubes are goed and they stay on. After some searching i found the +5Volt_pot is gone. You can find it next to the digital volume chip MPC4241T. Further investigation tells me that the power comes from the voltage regulator U1 so this might be the problem. After some extra tests this was not the case. The voltage regulator is fed with 9,5Volt by the diodes 1N4002: D26, 27 28 and D29. D27 was defect and sometimes lost conductance. After spraying with cold spray it started working again. I changed them with new ones (i replaced all of them) and the voltage regulator to be on the safe side. Now it works again. Hope this may help others. (picture shown power supply section with diodes removed.
  19. About 6 months ago a friend asked if I could re-tube and bias the new tubes in his DT50 amp, once he bought the tubes. He said that the amp was making a crackling sound and he had not had the tubes replace since he had bought the amp 3 or 4 years ago (I believe that was the timeframe). I said I could do that for him even though I'm not an amp repair tech but I do have an Electronics Technology degree and had done the same on my Carvin amp last year. He finally got around last week to bringing me the amp and new tubes but now said there was no sound at all coming out. Hopefully replacing the tubes would do the trick, he had both the power tubes and preamp tubes. So I replaced all 4 of the tubes last night but still no sound, sort of. Here is what I have observed. All of the new tubes 'light' up except for 1 of the preamp tubes (V4??). The preamp tube furthest from the guitar input, farthest to the right looking from the front of the amp, does not light up at all or even get warm. I warmed the amp up for about 30 minutes and I rotated through all of the switch settings (Class A / AB, Pentode/ Triode, the 4 amp switch settings, above Pentode/Triode ), still the tube does not light up. I can get a very small amount of sound to come out if I turn up all of the knob settings to 10, including the channel volume and Master volume. I cleaned all of the tube sockets before putting the new tubes in place. I ohmed the offending preamp tube socket pins, front to back, and I'm getting continuity. I also checked the 2 on board fuses and they are good as well as the power fuse on the back of the amp for grins, it's good as well. The output transformer is cool to the touch, not sure if it gets warm or not. Any thoughts as to what might be going on? Any help is appreciated Thanks
  20. Hello, I have a DT50 112 and HD500X using L6 link. I am struggling with understanding the best way to use this setup. L6 Link, 4 cable method or just direct to the amp. Right now I am using the Plexi bright pre amp but I feel i'm not getting the same sound as I do direct into the Amp with the same model selected. ( USED the DT50 EdiT software to assign a Pexi brite to channel A and JCM to Channel B. signal chain - EP silverburst into G70 wireless > out to Tc helicon Correct XT into the HD500X. BAd Horsie II wah in the effects loop of the HD500X. Digital cable out of HD500X to L6 link on the Amp. Reading forums, it seems it might have something to do with routing and settings. Not sure what I am doing wrong but it just doesnt have the punch that the Amp has? Need help. AC DC.5xe Covers.5xe 80's Rock Covers.5xe
  21. I absolutely love my DT50... but of curse I fear it will wear eventually... By any chance could this line be revived? I would probably by at least 1 or 2 more head units with cabinets.
  22. Hi All, Firstly apologies if this has already been covered. I have had a DT25 and POD HD500X for a year or so and am struggling to get a good setlist together. All I really want is a classic 4 patch setup, clean, crunchy, heavy and lead. I love the sound of the DT25 on its own but am really struggling to find a great setlist with the two devices combined to the point where I'm wondering if I should sack the POD off and just start from scratch. It would be a shame as the POD is so versatile. Anyway, If anyone has any tips or advice id really appreciate it. Cheers Rich

    Helix with DT25

    Okay, I just bought a DT25 to run with my Helix. I did so to get a variety of options and have tubes pushing the power amp section of my rig. I am running it in 4CM and the Helix tones are as expected and tight. When I create a patch with the DT in the mix I am having issues on the effects at the back side of the amp. All my effects before the amp (Phase, Flanger, ETC) work great but my delays and reverb effects after the amp are not. YES they are turned on and I have played with the volume and control settings on the effect to no avail... Any thoughts????
  24. Hello I'm actually trying to use the SEND/RETURN option on my DT50 Head with my BOSS GT-6. My goal is to use the GT-6 only for special effects (Preamp and distorsion/overdrive disabled), and keep the preamp stage og my DT50 Head active. So I think with the 4 wires method we have : GUITAR (output) -----> (Input) GT-6 (Send) ------> (Input) DT-50 (Send) ------> (Return) GT-6 (Output) -----> (Return) DT-50 It should insert the effect this way : Guitar signal ----> DT50 Preamp ----> Effect ----> DT50 PowerAmp But I noticed : 1-The Master Volume rotary has no effect on the volume 2-The Chanel Volume rotary has no effect on the volume 3-All Channel parameters rotary have no effect on the signal (DRIVE, BASS, MEDIUM,TREBBLE, PRESENCE, REVERB) Is it normal, or am I missing something ? This is a really bad news if it is the expected result as I would have like to keep the good sound of my DT-50 but just add some effect to it. Thank you for your help.
  25. Before I describe my problem, I want to point out that I have read about latency and popping on the DT50 when changing topologies. I think my problem is more severe than normal, and I have done my best to describe the issue and how to reproduce it clearly below. Products involved: POD HD500 w/Firmware 2.1 connected to DT50 1x12 Combo w/Firmware 2.0 via L6 Link. The POD and DT50 were both set to factory settings and presets. I recently purchased a used DT50 and connected it to my HD500 that I purchased new years ago after I update the firmware on both. When changing presets on my HD500, I hear significant, sometimes severe, pops on the DT50. If anyone would like to attempt to reproduce my problem and give me feedback on their results, it would be a huge help. Specifically, when I change from the factory preset of 6A - Mysterious Wei under the Songs / Style bank to 6B - Plugged In Baby under the Songs / Style bank, the amp makes one loud pop and a second smaller pop and the sound cuts out for a second or more. This problem is extremely noticeable because of the loud pops combined with no guitar sound. I know part of this is from a topology change and a class A to AB change, but this is far more severe than anything I would expect from reading the forums previously. My questions for the forums regarding this issue: Can anyone reproduce this problem with a DT50 known to be in good working order with good tubes and an HD500 connected using the same preset change I mentioned above? Any suggestions to minimize this issue? Is there a problem with my DT50? Is this a sign of worn tubes that need replaced? Is this considered normal operation for the DT50, or does it need looked at by a technician? Finally, if anyone out there has a DT25, would you mind trying to reproduce this on your DT25 and reporting your experience? I have read that the DT25 is much better with switching than the DT50. I greatly appreciate assistance. If needed, I will try to post a sound clip of the problem, but I will not be able to do that until Friday or Saturday. This is my first tube amp I've ever owned after many years of playing guitar. I enjoy the sound so much that I hope I can find a solution to minimize this issue. Thanks, Baoh
