      What tones do you want Line 6 to build?

      Folks,   Here is where to go to let Line 6 know what tones you are interested in seeing built: http://line6.ideascale.com/a/ideafactory.do?mode=top&discussionFilter=byids&discussionID=47764. We will use your feedback when creating how-to videos and setting presets on our products.   One tone per submission so others can vote on it, please. We encourage you all to submit as many tones as you want, but it doesn't work when you lump them all into one submission. Thanks!       Line 6 Customer Support

      "Why is Line 6 not responding???"   10/29/2015

      Friends of Line 6,   We notice that many times, customers ask on our forums "Why is Line 6 not responding???"   Please understand that our forums exist so that our community members can help one another and talk to each other. Our very knowledgeable Line 6 Experts monitor and moderate our forums, and have direct lines to Line 6 staff to report trouble or get useful information, but they are not paid employees of Line 6. Line 6 staff is generally aware of the most sensitive and/or active forum threads, and occasionally will post to certain threads. However, our forum is not the appropriate place to ask Line 6 for a response to your questions. Additionally, sending a private message to a Line 6 staff member does not guarantee a response.   Remember, if you need to contact our technical staff, we welcome you to do so at www.Line6.com/support. Here you can either create a support ticket or call our US or EU staffs.   Also, "Why is Line 6 not responding???" can mean "Why is Line 6 not fixing {insert issue}???" Again, Line 6 staff is generally aware of the most sensitive and/or active forum threads and issues. Please know that once we are aware of a given issue, we have to capture enough data to reproduce and understand the issue, create the resolution for the problem, test it, and make sure that nothing else is broken in the process. Unfortunately, the process takes weeks and sometimes even months, depending on the complexity of the issue, cooperation of other companies, and a variety of other factors. We appreciate your patience during those times, and we'll do even better at providing meaningful communications periodically.   In the end, we, your fellow musicians, truly want to resolve any such issues as quickly as possible so you can get back to making music with your Line 6 gear. We thank you for your patronage and your understanding.       Best Regards,   Line 6

      Warning about downloaded tones, patches and presets   01/11/2016

      Please be aware that downloaded tones, patches and presets that were created by other users have the potential to be corrupted and not work correctly on the target device. Firewall/Antivirus/Internet security applications, Internet/video accelerators and proxy servers, among other things, can be causes of trouble with downloaded files.   If your device freezes, a rule of thumb is to back up your custom patches, reset the unit to its factory state, ensure the unit does not freeze while in this state, then load your patches one by one, testing after each load to determine which patch is faulty.   Otherwise, please contact our Customer Support team at www.Line6.com/support/tickets. Please be prepared to supply your backup file so that we can investigate your case further.

  1. Hallo, I purchased an FBV3 pedal to control my Amplify. It works great and the midi controll software is easy to use too. Since Amplify has no looper and there is no easy way to integrate a classic external looper, I thought maybe I can connect both, Amplify AND computer and use a software looper controlled by FBV pedal. Can I switch FBV3 back to control Amplify mode while the USB cable is attached? Thank for any advice and/or oppinionon the topic. Yours recoder

  5. First, connect the FBV via USB to the computer and use the FBV Control software. In the File>Open menu, select the ‘Gearbox’ preset for the FBV. This will store on the FBV automatically. Close FBV Control. Then, start Gearbox with the FBV still connected to the computer. Go to the Edit>Preferences window, and in the ‘MIDI/Control’ tab, select USB Audio Device for MIDI Input. Hit Apply and then, OK. The FBV will now control certain parameters of the program including Wah/Volume sweep and toggling. If you would like to change the behavior of the switches, you should than exit Gearbox and go back to FBV Control once again to assign MIDI CC Toggle messages that correspond with what they want to control in the program. You can reference the chart for Gearbox MIDI CC messages starting on page 2.14 of the following Gearbox MIDI CC Reference Guide: http://line6.com/data/6/0a060b316ac34f0593546810e/application/pdf/MIDI%20Continuous%20Controller%20Reference%20-%20English%20(%20Rev%20F%20).pdf
  6. The main features of the Spider III amplifier can be controlled by connecting an FBV Shortboard MKII. Q: What type of cables are used with the Line 6 FBV Shortboard MKII? A: The Line 6 FBV Shortboard MKII uses a standard CAT-5/6 cable with standard RJ-45 ends. These cables are very common in data connection and can be found in most local computer outlets. The FBV controllers ship with a black 25' cable included in the box. Please see the chart below that details what each switch controls on the Spider III amplifier.
  7. Q: I'm on a Windows PC. Why does Line 6 FBV Control or POD HD Edit (300/400/500) programs "hang" at the logo screen and never go past this startup splash image? A: Users who have "virtual MIDI Cable" software (a known example is: Hurchalla Maple) installed on their systems may experience a stalled state where the FBV Control or POD HD Edit program logo appears onscreen and the program remains "stuck" trying to load. Please uninstall your virtual MIDI Cable software application and then try re-launching the FBV Control or POD HD Edit program. If you need to have a virtual MIDI Cable program running on your system, please consider using LoopBe1: http://www.nerds.de/data/setuploopbe1.exe or Bome's MIDI Translator Pro: http://www.bome.com/products/miditranslator

  11. Q: Are the XLR outputs of the LD series line level? A: Yes, the XLR outputs on all of our Lowdown amps are balanced line level outputs. The line level output not affected by the output volume of the amplifier, and will send a cabinet simulated tone to your mixing console. Q: What if I do not want the cabinet tone but rather a unaffected tone (like a DI Box?) A: If you desire an unaffected bass tone in addition to the cabinet simulated tone you will want to go into a DI box and send the DI signal to the mixing console, and have the instrument output of the DI go into the instrument input of the Lowdown amplifier. Q: What controllers work with the Lowdown series? A:The FBV series is the correct controller for the Lowdown series, we recommend the FBV Shortboard or FBV Express. The FBV (Longboard) is not optimized for use with the Lowdown family of amplifiers, and the FBV2 is not compatible with a certain amount of early LowDowns. Please contact Line 6 Customer Support in this case for assistance.

Micro Spider Manual
  13. Q: Where can I find the manual for my Line 6 controller? A: Instructions on how to use your FBV controller can be found in the back of your specific amplifier's user manual. See the link below. user manual . Q: Which Line 6 controller works with which device? A: Please see the chart for more information on which controller will function with each Line 6 device. FBV compatibility chart Q: How do I engage the Wah? A: To engage the wah, simply press toe down on the foot pedal until it clicks over and you see the WAH light turn on. It takes a fair amount of pressure to get it to click over (if you get no results, try putting your entire weight on the toe position when you are standing). Over time this function will get easier. Q: Is it possible to control MIDI devices using the Floorboard via my Line 6 unit? For example, when I change to a specific channel/bank on the Line 6 unit, is a corresponding MIDI Program Change message sent from the MIDI Out to my other MIDI device? A: Yes, the Line 6 unit will send MIDI program change messages via it's MIDI out port when controlled by the floorboard. Q: Where are the sounds stored on the FBV board? A: The presets are always stored in the Line 6 unit, the FBV series only changes/controls the Line 6 device. Data Cable FAQs Q: What type of cables are used with the Line 6 controllers? A: The Line 6 controllers use a standard CAT-5 cable with standard RJ-45 ends. These cables are very common in data connection and can be found in most local computer outlets. The FBV controllers ship with a black 25' cable included in the box. Do not use CAT6, as it is a different impedance than CAT5. Q: How long can the CAT-5 cable be before I have communication errors? A: We have tested with cable lengths up to 50' with no problems. Q: Can I use a "cross-over" CAT-5 cable with Line 6 gear? A: You CANNOT use a "crossover" CAT-5 cable, as it may send voltage to unintended locations of your FBV Controller and damage the unit. Q: I used a new data cable to connect my FBV series controller and I saw smoke? A: It sounds as if you may have used a network "cross-over" cable, which has a different wiring configuration (but the same RJ-45 connection) as a standard CAT-5 cable. If this is the case, voltage that was intended to power the the pedal were routed to the wrong place, resulting in damage to the pedal. This FBV series controller will need to repaired/replaced. Q: Can I use a CAT-5 data splitter from my Line 6 unit(s) to run multiple FBV controllers on stage (or run multiple Line 6 units from a single controller)? A: No, The FBV controller was designed to work on its own with a single amplifier. If you feel this is a feature you would want to implement, please submit a feature request: ideascale FBV Express F.A.Q.s Q: Why doesn't the tuner feature work on my FBV Express? A: The tuner feature on the FBV Express only works when used with amps or units that feature a built-in tuner. For example the Spider II HD75 has no built in tuner, therefore the tuner on the FBV Express is disabled. Q: Can I access more than one bank of presets with my FBV EXPRESS? A: No, the FBV Express will only access the A, B, C or D channels of whatever bank your unit is selected. For example, if your POD XT is sent to BANK 5, then you would be able to access and change between 5A, 5B, 5C, and 5D. FBV and Shortboard F.A.Q.s Q: What is the difference between the FBV and the FBX controllers? A: These two pedals are identical. The pedal was originally released as the "FBX" controller, but the name was changed soon after the release to the "FBV" controller. Q: Are there any control functions on the FBV controller that will not work with all Line 6 devices? A: The FBV controller was designed for use with the Line 6 Vetta. While the majority of the buttons (i.e. A B C D) will work correctly, some buttons (i.e. amp 1/2, stomp 2/ 3, tremolo, favorite channel) may or may not have a function on your Line 6 Spider, Flextone, PODxt, POD X3, etc. See the documentation and FAQs for more specification application information. Q: I cannot see the patch name when editing my XT unit from my FBV (shortboard) controller? A: You will be able to see the patch name in the view window of the XT device, but you will not see the changes in the FBV controller window. External Expresion Pedal FAQs Q: What type of pedal do I need to use for an optional expression pedal with my Line 6 controller? A: The Line 6 EX-1 is the recommended expression pedal for additional control, and is connected to your Line 6 controller with a standard mono guitar cable. It utilizes a 10k Ohm pot. Q: When using an EX-1 expression pedal with an FBV shortboard, can I re-assign the EX-1 to control something other than volume? A: The Ex-1 expression pedal cannot be reassigned to a function other than controlling volume. Q: What are the specs for the EX-1? Line 6 Expression Pedal (EX-1) F.A.Q.s FBV MKII Questions Q: What is the difference between the original FBV series and the MKII series Express and Shortboard controllers? A: The MKII series Express and Shortboards will control any device that could be controlled by the MKI controller. See the following information for more specific physical changes: The MK II units have a USB port that can be used to connect to a computer for updating purposes or to be used as a controller for many recording softwares. Instead of Comp on the MKI, it’s Stomp on the MKII. Instead of FX Loop on the MKI, it’s Function 1 on the MKII. On the MKII, Function 2 is present. There is no such button on the MKI pedals, so Function 2 does nothing on older Line 6 products. The MKII Shortboard's view screen is 4 5/8" x 1/2", as compared to the 6" x 3/4" high view screen found on the MKI Shortboard. See the dimensions chart for other physical changes on the MKII series: Line 6 Product Dimensions Q: I noticed there is no driver for the FBV Mk II controller for connecting by USB. How is the FBV Mk II series recognized by a computer? A: The FBV Mk II series uses a class compliant driver that is already installed on your machine. Please see the following link if your machine is not recognizing the FBV Mk II controller: USB Connectivity with Line 6 Devices Q: Can I use the Mk II series pedals as an interface to my "MIDI-only" amplifier (i.e. Axsys, Flextone, HD147, Vetta) to update via Line 6 Monkey or edit using Line 6 edit? A: No, the Mk II device will not act as an interface for your "MIDI-only" device. Q: Can I change the assignements of the FBV buttons on the my computer that control my Line 6 device? A: The control assignments of the FBV mk II can be changed to whatever assignments you need on your computer, but the re-assigned buttons will not be recognized when connecting to a Line 6 device (the Line 6 device will only see the function(s) that were pre-determined). Q: My FBV device is no longer functional after bringing my computer out of "sleep mode"? A: This issue can be seen with many class-compliant driver devices. You can either turn off the "sleep mode" or restart your computer for the FBV Mk II unit to be recognized by your computer after coming out of sleep mode. FBV 3 FAQ Q: Can I assign the LEDs to different colors if I'm using a Line 6 product other than Firehawk 1500? A: Assignable color LEDs are available for use with Firehawk 1500 only. LEDs are red when FBV 3 is used with other Line 6 products. Q: How do I calibrate the FBV 3 expression pedal? A: You don't, the FBV 3 auto calibrates the pedal. Q: Will the FBV 3 work with my old Line 6 amp? A: Please check out the compatibility list here, FBV compatibility chart Q: I noticed there is no driver for the FBV 3 controller for connecting by USB. How is the FBV Mk II series recognized by a computer? A: The FBV 3 uses a class compliant driver that is already installed on your machine. Q: What type of pedal do I need to use for an optional expression pedal with my Line 6 controller? A: The Line 6 EX-1 is the recommended expression pedal for additional control, and is connected to your Line 6 controller with a standard mono guitar cable. It utilizes a 10k Ohm pot. Calibration Procedures Q: How do I calibrate the FBV 3 expression pedal? A: You don't, the FBV 3 auto calibrates the pedal. Note: FBV Mk II controllers will need to have firmware 1.10.0 or later installed for the calibration procedure, using Line 6 Monkey 1.31 or later. See the following link for more information on updating your firmware using Line 6 Monkey: FBV Mk II (Express and Shortboard) software update FBV Shortboard Mk.

The tuner LEDs above the 7 segment display will light. 5) Move the pedal and verify that the tuner LEDs sequentially turn off as the pedal moves to the minimum position, and refills when moved to the maximum position. 6) Press D to exit FBV Express (Mk I): 1) Unplug the RJ45 cable from your FBV EXPRESS 2) Move the expression pedal all the way to the toe down position 3) Hold down the A and D switches 4) Plug in your RJ45 with the switches still depressed and hold this for 10 seconds (you will see the LED go blank) 5) Move the expression pedal to the heel position and then all the way forward to the toe. 6) Shift all of your weight to the toe position (you will want to stand up) until the WAH light switches on. 7) Wait 10 seconds and click back to VOL. Your FBV EXPRESS is now calibrated. FBV Shortboard Calibration (Mk I) 1. Attach the CAT-5 cable from your Line 6 device to your FBV shortboard. Power on the Line 6 device. The FBV Shortboard LEDs should cycle and the display should read "LINE 6" with the backlight lit up. 2. Once the pedal is fully powered and showing the the preset from the Line 6 device, move the ONBOARD expression pedal to the center position, roughly halfway between the toe (maximum) and heel (minimum) position. 3. Press STOMP + DELAY + REVERB and hold for three seconds to begin calibration of the ONBOARD pedal. 4. Move the ONBOARD pedal to its MAXIMUM position (pedal all the way toe down) and press down hard enough to click the pedal's toe switch. You want need to stand up and put your fullweight on the pedal to ensure the pedal switches over you will hear a slight "click" sound. The second number grouping (from the left) in the display should read "127" 5. Move the ONBOARD pedal to its MINIMUM position and press down (pedal all the way heel down). The second number grouping (from the left) in the display should read "0". **If you have an EXTERNAL pedal, hook it up to your FBV SHORTBOARD now and continue on to step six. If you do NOT have an external pedal, simply turn off your Line 6 device, you are done calibrating. 6. Move the EXTERNAL pedal to the center position, roughly halfway between the MAXIMUM and MINIMUM position. 7. Press BANK DOWN + STOMP + DELAY and hold for three seconds, to begin calibration of the EXTERNAL pedal. 8. Move the EXTERNAL pedal to its MAXIMUM position (pedal all the way toe down). 9. Move the EXTERNAL pedal to its MINIMUM position and press down (pedal all the way heel down). 10. Turn OFF your Line 6 device. You have just calibrated your EXTERNAL pedal. FBV/FBX Pedal 1. Connect your FBX to your amp. The LEDs should cycle and the LCD should display "LINE 6" with the backlight lit. 2.
