Our forums are here so that our community members will continue to help one another, partake in respectful, thought-provoking debates and conversations, and forge great relationships.   Line 6 has appointed the Line 6 Experts to moderate the forums, but occasionally, Line 6 staff will post to certain threads. As these are community support forums, please remember that your post is not a direct message to Line 6. If you need to contact our technical staff, please do so at www.Line6.com/support. Also, please submit your product ideas at www.line6.ideascale.com so the community can vote up the best ideas.
      For those who've used our previous forum system, please note that the old forums are archived in a read-only state at http://line6.com/supportarchivenew/ There's still a lot of useful information there.   We'd like to remind everyone that by using our forums, you are agreeing to our Terms of Use, found at http://line6.com/termsofuse.html.

      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.

  2. Helix Pedal Maintenance Procedure

    NOTE: Please be aware that this is NOT for the Helix LT. The instructions contained in the document below illustrate how to resolve loosening and squeaking that may be encountered with your Helix® floor processor’s built-in expression pedal. Line 6 recommends that this maintenance be performed by an Authorized Service Center. Please note that while opening your Helix to perform this maintenance does not void your warranty, attempting this procedure yourself is done at the risk of potentially damaging the unit. Helix_Expression_Pedal_Troubleshooting_Instructions_Rev_A.pdf The procedure is demonstrated in the following video:
  3. If you're using the FBV 3, or the FBV Shortboard MKII with the Spider V series, you have the option of utilizing an external expression pedal. The external pedal would be plugged into the EXP Pedal jack on the FBV. This is how they interact with the Spider V's patches. On patches without tweak assign to pedal, the external pedal becomes volume, the on-board pedal controls wah position, and toe switch toggles wah bypass. On patches with tweak assigned to pedal, the external pedal controls the tweak-assigned parameter. The on-board pedal controls volume and wah, and the toe switch toggles between wah and volume control.

  5. Helix Snapshots and EXP pedal recall

    Snapshots do not store or recall the EXP 1 and 2 assignment. So when you engage the Toe Switch, the onboard pedal switches between EXP 1 and EXP 2 assignment, but Snapshots do not account for that since they only store the Wah or Volume block’s On/Off bypass state. There is a workaround however. You can connect a pedal to Helix’s EXP 2 jack (or even just a “dummy†1/4 plug in the jack) that forces the onboard pedal to remain always as EXP 1, thus it won’t change and the Snapshots are recalled as expected.

Q: What can I do if I am experiencing Bluetooth connectivity issues between my Bluetooth device and the AMPLIFi FX100? A: For troubleshooting steps about Bluetooth connectivity and usage check out our Bluetooth Connectivity FAQ HERE. Q:What should I do If I am experiencing connection issues with the AMPLIFi Remote app when I switch back and forth between apps on my iOS device? A: An important thing to note about the AMPLIFi Remote app functionality is that in addition to the iOS Bluetooth connection between your AMPLIFi FX100 and your iOS device, there is a secondary 'sync' connection between the amp and the app. Each time you minimize/close the app, the connection between the AMPLIFi Remote app and the AMPLIFi FX100 will need to be re-established, even if your iOS device is reporting that the AMPLIFi FX100 is connected via 'Bluetooth'. In this case, re-opening the AMPLIFi Remote app, will automatically re-establish the connection within a few seconds. Make sure to look at the main menu of the AMPLIFi Remote app and wait for it to indicate that your AMPLIFi FX100 is 'connected' before moving forward using the app. If it does not automatically re-connect, close the AMPLIFi Remote app by double-tapping your iOS home key and then sliding the AMPLIFi Remote app window up and off the screen to fully close the app. Then relaunch the AMPLIFi Remote app and it should re-sync itself with the AMPLIFi FX100. Android devices usually have a button that lists all open programs where you can slide the app left or right to close it. Then relaunch the AMPLIFi Remote app and it should re-sync itself with the amp. Q:Can the AMPLIFi Remote App stream songs that are stored in iCloud and not on my iOS device? A:The AMPLIFi Remote App can only play back songs that are stored on your iOS device. Within the AMPLIFi Remote App settings, you can enable 'Hide Songs Not On Device' so that you only see songs that are stored on your iOS device when playing music from your Library. The Android app does not have this setting, but still only plays back songs stored on the device. Q:How can I search for a specific tone if I don't have the song or artist in my Library? A: To search for a specific tone, go to your Library within AMPLIFi Remote and pick any artist, then one of their albums, and then any song. This will begin to play the song and present you with a list of tones that match the song that is playing.

  13. Line 6 Expression Pedal (EX-1) FAQ

    Q: What are the specs for the Line 6 EX-1 Expression Pedal? A: The Line6 expression pedal is a passive 10K ohm mono linear taper pot, using a standard 1/4 inch mono instrument cable. Q: Do I need to reprogram my changes with the EX-1 every time I plug the pedal in? A: You do not need to restart your effect unit everytime you want to reset the expression pedal. Your expression pedal settings will remain the way you set them up regardless of effect knob settings. Your expression pedal settings can be saved to the effects parameters saved by the footswitches. Q: What are the weight and dimensions of the EX1 Expression Pedal? A: Line 6 Weights & Dimensions Q: Can I use the Line 6 EX-1 Expression Pedal to control the volume, wah, or tweak function on my Line 6 product? A: Yes. Simply plug the EX-1 Expression Pedal into either the "PEDAL 1" jack or the "EXPRESSION PEDAL" jack on the back of the device. Q: How do I use the Ex-1 with a POD unit when connected to the unit or an FBV shortboard? A: Press the "Edit" button then turn the "select" knob until you see the "wah | volume" page. On the volume side, select or highlight "Assign" with the third soft button located under the main display. Turn the "Effect Tweak" knob to change from volume to Tweak. In the updated PODxt, these parameters are changed on the page after the "wah/volume" page. By changing from volume to tweak you have engaged to EX-1 to control any function that comes under "tweak". To find out what's under the tweak selection, turn the "Select" knob to the next page where you will see "FX Tweak | tempo". on the FX tweak side you may scroll through the stomp tweaks, delay tweaks, mod tweaks etc. Make sure if you select say the delay time, the delay button light must be on and so with the other effects. Q: How do I use an EX-1 Expression Pedal with a Stomp Box Modeling Pedal? A: See the following document for information on how to use the EX-1 with your Four button modeling pedal: Expression Pedal & Stompbox Modeler Pedal FAQ Q: My expression pedal just stopped working. What happened? A: If too much weight is put on the pedal when it is in the heel down position, the foot rest (top half of the pedal) can become disconnected from the control pot in the base (bottom half of the pedal). To fix this, simply unscrew the bottom plate of the pedal and push the foot rest into the heel down position, then (with your finger) push the metal plate that is connected to the control pot down until the brass pin in the foot rest clicks into the center slot of the metal plate. You may need to pull the toe end of the foot rest away from the base to do this. Be careful, as too much force could crack the foot rest. Put it back together and it should work fine.

A: The DL4 Loop Sampler function operates at 14 seconds to summed mono outputs at regular speed, and 28 seconds at half speed. A loop sampled and played at normal speed, then switched to half speed, will drop the pitch an octave. A loop sampled and played at half speed will play back at normal pitch. If the speed is then returned to normal, the pitch will be raised an octave. When the DL4 is in 1/2 speed mode, the sampling rate and consequently the bandwidth have been halfed. This shouldn't be very noticeable though as this halfed bandwidth is still wider than most standard electric guitar amps. If you were using the unit with a very clean, bright electric guitar (or acoustic guitar)and monitoring through studio monitors, you may notice the change in bandwidth. While in "Loop Sampler" mode, the DL4 will receive signal through each of its two inputs simultaneously. The input signal will then be summed to mono, sampled and then sent to the two outputs. In order to sample both inputs separately (or in stereo), the unit would have required two separate sample processors and a lot more RAM. Needless to say, this would have increased the cost of the unit dramatically. All other DL4 "Delay Models" will however have a discrete left and right stereo output. Q: How can I use an EX-1 Expression pedal with my DL4? A: For information on using an EX-1 expression pedal with the DL4, please click here. Q: How is the Expression pedal implemented in the loop/sampler portion of the DL4? Can you adjust the feedback level of the loop (so loops start to fade), or just the mix of loop in the output signal? A: The expression pedal works the same way in the Loop Sampler mode as it does in the regular delay mode. You can set the toe-down position of the pedal to one setting of the knobs (excluding the model selector knob) and the heel-down position to another setting. For example you could have the toe-down position set for the loop mix (mix knob) at maximum, the delay level (tweez) at medium, the delay modulation (tweak)at minimum, the delay repeats at half-way, and the delay time set fast (say 3 o'clock). You could then put the pedal in the heel-down position and set the knobs for the loop level at minimum, the delay level at maximum, the modulation at minimum, the repeats at minimum and the delay time long (say 9 o'clock). Now when you're playing (and the play/stop button is switched on), putting the pedal in the toe down position will give you the loop at full volume, pre-loop delay that is of medium volume volume with no modulation and a fast time. When you switch to heel-down, you'd get no loop (even with the play/stop button switched on)with a long single delay that is very loud. Yes it will remember your settings after you turn the DL4 off. The loop sampler can either play the loop indefinitely (until you hit the stop button)or play it one time only then stop (Button C). It will not trail off on it's own. You would have to use the expression pedal to ride it's level. Q: On the stomp-box modelers, how do I turn on the alternate (delay trails) bypass and what does it do? A: Alternate Bypass will allow the delay to remain in the signal (fade off into the distance) when the pedal is turned off, where True Bypass will stop the delay as soon as the pedal is turned off. Alternate bypass mode should prevent any drop in volume level when the pedal is engaged. In addition, it will not cut off delay trails in a long delay setting. To switch between true bypass and alternate bypass mode, you will need to hold down the a and c buttons at the same time for at least three seconds while inserting the left mono input(which will turn on the unit) to initialize alternate bypass. It will remember the selected bypass mode. Since it's a simple toggle, if you want to switch back, just repeat the process. Q: I'm having a hard time getting my bass loops to sync up with my drum tracks. It almost sounds as though the bass loops are slowing down. Is that possible? Or are there some tricks to getting the loops right on the money? A: What you are experiencing is caused by the fact that it is very difficult to record a perfectly timed loop. Even if the original loop is off by the slightest amount of time, that time will be compounded with every repeat of the loop. Example: if the end of the loop is 1ms off, after 10 loops the guitar parts are now 10ms faster or slower than the drum parts. After 15 loops it will have a 15ms difference etc...You may need to re-sample the loop if after using it 6-8 times it doesn't match perfectly. With practice, you will get the feel of the correctly timed loop. Q: Can I make the sampled loop louder without overpowering my guitar? A: While in the LOOP SAMPLER mode, a simple turn of the MIX knob should enable you to control the level of the initial loops. Also, using the DL4 with a Line 6 EX-1 Expression Pedal will enable you to "morph" between two different MIX settings on the fly, from the floor, in real time. Simply place the EX-1 in the "heel down" position and program the pedal to your first desired setting. Next, put the EX-1 in the toe down position and program your second desired setting. Now, move the pedal back and forth and morph away baby! More information on the DL4 can be found at our Stomp Box Modelers product page. Q: What is the "suppressed carrier" frequency of the ring modulator patch? Is it fixed, or does it change with the variable waveform control (tweak or tweez)? A: It is variable and controlled via the tweak knob. 0 = sine, 10 = square wave. Q: How do I get the "Alvin Lee" dotted eighth note rhythm or "U2/Edge" delay from the DL4 pedal? A: The Alvin Lee Dotted Eighth Note Rhythm: The "Alvin Lee" sound is a single slap-back repeat. To set it up: 1. Tap the dotted eighth rhythm into the Digital Delay model. 2. Set Repeats, Tweak and Tweez to zero and the mix to 1:00. It may seem difficult to tap that rhythm in with your foot, but with a little practice, it becomes pretty easy. There is no preset delay value of a dotted eighth rhythm in the Rhythmic Delay model. The "U2 / Edge" Delay: The "U2/Edge" sound has 1.5 to 2 repeats on each of the stereo delays. To set this up: 1. Set the delay model to stereo delay and the unit automatically defaults to the "U2" sound. The Edge delay is actually a dotted eighth rhythm on the left side and a quarter note rhythm on the right side. The way to adjust the delay to this sound is to set the delay time to 11:00, repeats to 7:30, Tweak to 11:30, Tweez to 7:30 and mix to 1:00. If you want the tempo to be faster, just move the Delay Time and Tweak knobs a little counter-clockwise. You will have to make adjustments by ear to get that perfect "dotted eighth and quarter note" sound. The default Tap Tempo rhythm for the models is a quarter note. It is not possible to change this default rhythm. The only solution would be to save the presets with a different rhythm. This would allow for six presets if you used the optional expression pedal.
  16. On POD X3L, physical expression pedal positions, when assigned to a TWEAK parameter, will not be stored upon saving the patch. However, the position or value of the effect parameters in Edit Mode (UI) that the TWEAK Pedal is assigned to, will be stored upon save. This means that when you recall a patch with your expression pedal in the heel position, assuming the expression pedal is set to control a tweak parameter (IE: delay mix), the patch will recall the value you saved the tweak at (IE:Delay Mix 80%) and not the PHYSICAL PEDAL POSITION of the expression pedal (IE: Heel position or NO DELAY MIX) This behavior is similar to the way the POD XTL and Vetta works.
  17. Vetta 2.5 Known Issues

    Vetta II Post Delay Mix Issue On some patches with POST DELAY active, you will notice that if you turn DELAY off/on, the perceived mix will jump to %100. Please follow the steps below when the problem patch is active to resolve this issue: Select FOOT CONTROL. Scroll to Page 4 that say PEDAL 1. Use the black knob under DEST to assign PEDAL 1 to a different parameter (an fx you are not using on the patch), Go to page 5 and if PEDAL 2 is set to POST DELAY MIX, follow the same instructions above. Select SAVE twice to save the changes. Gain/Drive Reversal When Using Line 6 Edit Drive and gain for distortion effects are reversed when loaded into Line 6 Edit: After loading a tone or changing the model selection, the drive and gain values for distortion effects are reversed when comparing the amp display to Line 6 edit. When adjusting the drive or gain using Line 6 Edit or the amp, the correct control moves and jumps to match the value of the one you are moving. This effects all distortion effects, and also happens when loading a tone.
  18. Tonecore Pedals You can set up any of the Line 6 Tonecore pedals the same way that you would any other stomp box. Plug your guitar into the input of the pedal and plug the output of the pedal into the next step in your chain, whether it be another pedal or an amp. If you are using many pedals, you may need to arrange the order to get the best sound, especially if you have boutique pedals with very high output or stereo effect pedals that require a stereo input/output (please see the information below regarding common effect chain setups). Once you have your pedal(s) setup, give it some power either from the Line 6 DC-1 adapter or a 9 volt battery, stomp on it to turn it on, and ROCK OUT!!! Note: All Line 6 Tonecore pedals are designed for instrument level input, but have no problem being placed between the guitar and the amplifier or in an amplifier's effect loop. Q: Are the ToneCore pedals "True Bypass" when I disengage the effect? A: No, the Tonecore pedal will still have the audio signal running through the processor, but you will not hear the effect. Common Effect Chain Order: Pedals are often set up in the following categories from the guitar input to the amp: Dynamic control: Constrictor (compressor) Filter control: Otto Filter, FM-4 Overdrive/Distortion: Crunchtone, Dr. Distorto, Uber Metal, DM-4 Modulation: Liqua-Flange (Flanger), Space Chorus, Tap Tremolo, Roto Machine, MM-4 Time based: Echo Park (Delay), DL-4, Verbzilla (Reverb) Please remember that this is only a guide, and many players will vary this setup order depending on personal preferences. You can find more information on effect pedal chains at http://www.harmonycentral.com/articles. Other tips for getting a better tone: - Use the highest quality cables you can afford - Use the shortest cable lengths possible between units - Confirm that all of your power needs are coming from the same source (to avoid ground loops) Q: Is there any way to combine sounds on a Line 6 Stompbox or Tonecore? For example, what if I want some chorus and tremolo at the same time? A: The Line 6 pedals are designed to play a single effect model at a time. Due to the high processing demands of modulation circuits, having the option of using more than one of the effects at time would have compromised the processing power dedicated to each effect and would have resulted in lower quality sound. Q: How can I do a factory reset on my Stomp Box Modeling Pedal? A: Have the power supply connected and press & hold A & D ('Tap' on the DL-4) button while plugging in your guitar to the left mono input. Q: Are the Four-Button Stomp Box Modeling pedals True Bypass" when I disengage the effect? A: The Four-Button Stomp Box Modeling pedals are "true bypass", meaning that the audio signal is sent directly from the input jack to the output jack. You can disable the "True Bypass" by holding the first and the third buttons (from the left) when powering the unit (inputing instrument cable into the left Mono input) to hear the effect after the effect is disengaged (i.e. trailing delays). Q: When I activate a channel on my Stompbox Modeler, I get the same sound no matter which model I have selected on the dial. A: Line 6 Stompbox Modelers use a combination of "live" controls and stored settings so it can be a little confusing a first. When you press one of the preset buttons, you are recalling the stored sound saved in that location regardless of where the model select knob is positioned. When you rotate the model select knob, you switch to that model and the associated control positions for it are recalled. The rest of the controls become active as you adjust them. Once you have a sound you like be sure to save it to one of the channels because once you switch to another channel, it's gone. Q: I am noticing a volume boost/loss when I engage my Four button modeling pedal. Why is this? A: The "True Bypass" mode will not have any noticeable effect on the signal path, so there will be very little change in overall volume when the pedal is disengaged. If the pedal is engaged at all time (i.e. allowing trailing delays) you may notice a slight increase in volume as the pedal is always active. These type of volume effects can be minimized by using the previous tone tips recommended and/or using a looping system (i.e. Voodoo Lab's Pedal Switcher or GCX) for larger pedal configurations. Q: How should I power my Line 6 Pedals? A: We recommend using the Line 6 DC-1 for the Tonecore pedals, PX-2 AC Power Supply for the 4-button stompboxes, or the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power units for powering pedals. The Pedal Power 2 Plus can power up to 6 Tonecore pedals and two Modeling pedals at once, and the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power AC can power up to 4 Modeling pedals. Other power supplies may not deliver consistent voltage and are not supported by Line 6. Q: What are the specifications for Line 6 power supplies? A: Power Supply F.A.Q. Q: Can I run my Line 6 Modelling pedal in a parallel or series FX loop? A: Line 6 does not support the use of any Line 6 Four Button modeling pedal in an effect loop as the Line 6 Modeling pedals are designed for instrument level (guitar/bass output) to be inserted between the instrument and the amplifier. The signal strength of a line level signal (i.e. an effect loop) can cause the input buffers to fail. Q: What if I have a level control on my FX Loop? A: It is up to the player to determine how to set the effect loop level according to personal taste, but Line 6 does not recommend placing any Line 6 Four Button modeling pedal in an effect loop. The send would need to be reduced to approximate a guitar level signal (i.e., -22db, 1.5v pp max, etc). The problem with this is that you rely on the modeling pedal for make up gain, which if you tailored the input would result in higher noise floor. If a loop is the only desirable way to connect a Line 6 Modeling pedal, you will need a -22db pad on the front end and a +20db buffer on the output to make up the gain. Q: Can I run a tuner out of an unused output of a Line 6 pedal? A: There is no technical reason why this would not work, although some users have noticed noise in their system when this is done. Q: Are the Stompbox Modelers MIDI compatible? Are they able to exchange patches and/or other information with the POD and other Line 6 products? A: In order for two digital devices to communicate with one another, i.e. exchange patches and/or other MIDI information, they must both have MIDI In and Out capabilities. The "Stomp Box Modelers" do not feature MIDI compatibility; thus they are unable to communicate with other MIDI devices.
  19. ToneCore Pedals FAQ

    Q: What are ToneCore pedals?A: ToneCore pedals are the line of modeling stompboxes from Line 6. Each of the pedals in the Tone Core line include superior Line 6 tone and features, rugged die-cast construction, dual-action switching (tap tempo), and 9 Volt operation (or optional power supply). Q: Are ToneCore pedals "true bypass"? A: No. However, they use an FET style switching that removes the A/D converter from the audio when in Bypass. That being said, it is unlikely that you will notice any change in your tone as FET's are extremely quiet and very fast. Q: Are the ToneCore pedals buffered? A: Yes, all the Tonecore pedals are buffered. Q: Are the ToneCore pedals "true stereo"? Which models have stereo inputs/outputs? A: The following Tonecore pedals are true stereo (stereo inputs and outputs): The Tap Tremolo, Space Chorus, and Echo park. Q: What kind of connections do the ToneCore pedals utilize? A: All ToneCore pedals have unbalanced input and output jacks. Q: Does the delay have a looper?A: No. If you need looping controls and more elaborate delay features, the Line 6 DL4 sets the standard with 14 seconds of loop time, half-speed, and loop reverse. Q: How does the tap tempo work on the various pedals? A: ToneCore pedals feature a unique 2-IN-1 step footswitch used setting the tempo for time-based effects. 1) On all effects, step firmly on the footswitch to turn the effect On and Off. 2) On the effects like delay or tremolo, tap lightly on the footswitch a couple times to set the effect tempo. Q: Will the mono dock tap feature work with stereo modules? A: Yes, the tap feature will work the same in either a mono or stereo dock. Q: How do I power my ToneCore unit? A: The Line 6 DC-1 will power one unit at a time, or you can use a standard 9v battery that tests at 9 volts or higher. Avoid using the Line 6 PX-2 power supply (used with the POD series units), as it can damage your Tonecore unit. The DC-1 can be purchased directly from the Line 6 Store. Q: Can I daisy chain Tone Core pedals on a power supply?A: No, you will want to use isolated power supplies for each ToneCore. The Pedal Power 2 Plus can power up to 6 Tonecore pedals and two Modeling pedals at once. Q: What's the difference between these and the big stomp box modelers? A: The new ToneCores are standard, single button sized stompboxes with no preset programmability, while the four button modelers have presets that can be programmed. Q: Are these models based on vintage pedal effects or are they original? A: Some models are totally new and others were developed using modified versions of Line 6's effects library. Q: Can I run my Line 6 Tonecore pedal at line level either in an effect loop or between a keyboard and an amplifier? A: Yes, you should have no problems running a Tonecore pedal at line level either in an effect loop or between a keyboard and an amplifier. Q: How do I change the battery in my Tonecore pedal? A: Press firmly on both sides of the metal buttons (at the same time) where the pedal presses down. This will disengage the locking mechanism and you will be able to access the battery chamber underneath the pedal section of the Tonecore. Q: How do I get the pedal effect to turn off? A: Due to the unique 2-IN-1 step footswitch used to set the tempo for time-based effects, you need to push hard to engage/disengage the effect. You will hear/feel an audible "click" when the effect is activated/deactivated. Q: My dock was damaged but the module is fine. How can I replace it? A: The mono dock is the only replaceable part left for this product, and can be purchased directly from the Line 6 Store. Q: What are the setting for the pedals in the demonstrations? A: Unfortunately we have no record of the settings used for the demonstrations. Q: Do I need to have my Line 6 amplifier on a specific setting if I am going to utilize a Line 6 effect pedal? A: There is no specific setting you should use, but you may want to modify the effects in your presets when doing your initial setup to hear exactly what you are working on. Q: I notice a latency when you max the mix knob on the Echo Park? A: The mix knob full on means that you will only have delay, and none of the original guitar signal. if you are running the pedal between your guitar and amplifier you will most likely want to have the mix position at 50% value or less. Q: Is the dry signal passed through as analog and then mixed with the digital wet signal, or is the entire signal converted to digital, manipulated and then converted back to analog? A: The audio signal does a "full conversion" of analog to digital processing, and then back to analog processing. Q: What is the input and output impedence of the Tonecore series? A: Input impedence: ~680-800 ohms, output impedence: ~1Kohm. Q: What size Allen wrench is used to change the effect module? A: 7/64" A.E.S.
  20. Q: How do I turn on/off the Flextone's Noise Gate? A: On the original Flextone, just hold down the Tap Tempo button and rotate the Effects Select knob to Bypass to turn it off, or anything other than Bypass to turn it on. In firmware versions earlier than 1.4, the noise gate defaults to ON, 1.4 or later defaults to noise gate OFF. On the Flextone II, hold the tap tempo button and turn the REVERB button past 12 o'clock to turn the noise gate on, below 12 o'clock to turn it off.Q: Q: When I'm using the Flextone with the controller, why can't I turn on (insert effect name here)? A: Because the Flextone doesn't have as much raw processing power as the Vetta, it cannot run all of the different effects at the same time. You're limited to only one of the selections on the Effect Select knob per patch (Reverb is always available, though). If a patch is saved with, say, Delay/Flange 1 enabled, there's no way you can turn on a Rotary Speaker effect in that patch. You can, however, create an adjacent patch that is identical, except for the effects selection. Q: Do I need the Line6 Floor Board (Flextone I and II) or FBV controller (Flextone III) to access the 36 channels of the Flextone Series? A: Yes. The Line 6 controller will not only enable you to access all of the banks and channels in your Flextone amplifier, but the controller will also give you the ability to turn individual effects off and on, access the tuner and tap tempo functions, and includes a wah and volume pedal. Q: How do I find out the software version of my Flextone? A: In order to find out the software version of your Flextone, simply hold down the "C" button while you turn the amp on. If you continue to hold the "C" button down, you will notice that the "D" button will blink once or twice and then the "SAVE" button will blink a number of times. The number of times the "D" button blinks indicates the release number and the number of times the "SAVE" button blinks indicates the sub-release. For example, if the "D" button blinks once and the "SAVE" button blinks four times, this indicates software version 1.4. Q: How do I find out the stored settings in a particular Flextone Patch? A: To find out the stored settings in any given Flextone program, hold down the SAVE button while turning a knob. The Manual button will light until you reach the knobs stored setting, at which time the Manual light will turn off and the location of the knob will reflect it's stored setting. Hold down SAVE and TAP to view the secondary settings. Q: Can I download tones to my Flextone? A: If your amp is an original Flextone series, then Line 6 Edit software will not work, as there is no MIDI on these models. If it's a Flextone II or III series, you're in luck. You'll need a Mac or PC computer with a MIDI interface capable of handling large MIDI transfers. You can then download the tones from www.customtone.com to the amp, via the free Line 6 Edit software. Q: Will my Flextone II/III plus power a 4x12 cabinet? If so, about how many watts would this be? A:It's fine to connect a 4x12 cabinet to the Flextone II/III Plus, make sure the cab is set to "8 ohm mono ( Left only )" to protect your Flextone plus. The total watts connected in the manner will be about 50 watts per side 100 watts total. You can also use a Power amp and external cab with the Flextone II/III Plus by connecting from the XLR left mono line out to the power amp and on to the speaker cab. Q: What are the differences between Flextone models? A: The main differences between the Flextone, Flextone Plus and, Flextone XL lie mainly in the amplifiers' speaker configurations and wattage. The Classic Flextone comes with one 12 inch Celestion speaker along with one 75 watt amp to power it. The Flextone Plus also comes with one 12 inch Celestion speaker but has two 75 watt amps, one to power the existing speaker and one to power an extension cabinet through the Flextone's cabinet extension jack. Alone the amp will run at 75 watts. However, with the extension cabinet, the amp will run at 150 watts. The Flextone XL comes complete with two 12 inch Celestion speakers and two 75 watt power amps that put out a combined 150 watts of power. The original Flextone HD has two channels of 150 watts each into a 4 ohm load and 100 watts into 8 ohms, but lower impedance loads should be avoided . The amplifier will drive a 16 ohm load, but will not be as loud as if it were driving an 8 ohm load. The Flextone II HD is 100 watts per side at 4, 8, or 16 (switchable) ohms. The software within the Flextones are basically the same in each model as well as each generation. The main change is with the tones. At Line 6, we try to recreate as close as possible, the tone we are modeling to the original amp. As the modeling software for the POD and POD XT has become more accurate, these same characteristics have been passed along to our series of Flextone amps. As well as tonal changes, we've also added some new modeling in the newer versions of the software. The original Flextone comes stock with 16 amp models while the Flextone II and III families come with 32. The Flextone II also has 36 user presets instead of 12, 15 mix and match Cabinet Models, MIDI In and Out and most knobs have a secondary function. Plus, the Flextone II Plus, XL and HD feature external speaker outs and XLR outputs that can be used to connect the amp directly to a mixer. See your user manual for more information. Q: Can I use a MIDI controller with my Flextone amp? A: The Flextone will respond to MIDI Program Change and MIDI Sysex messages when used with an external MIDI controller. For more details on how MIDI functions with your Flextone download the user manual. Q: What upgrades are available for my Flextone amplifier? A: Unfortunately, for Flextone I, II and II HD owners, Line 6 no longer has or produces EPROM upgrade chips. For Flextone III users, certain Flash Memory updates can be made via our Line 6 Monkey software with your computer through a USB to MIDI interface. After updating to 1.1, you may see different behavior in the effects on some Flextone III amps. Why only some? Flextone III had a minor change to its OTP (one time programmable) BIOS chip after several months in production (from version 1.00 to version 1.02. Nobody knows what happened to 1.01, and nobody likes to talk about it). This change affected the way some of the effects controls respond when an effect is loaded. None of the functionality was lost, and patches that you've stored are not changed. Flex III's behavior on recalling stored channels has not changed at all. How can I tell if my amp is going to change behavior or not? If you power up holding down the 'B' channel select button, the LED on the 'B' button will blink to indicate the major revision (in this case, it will blink once) and the LED on the 'D' button will blink to indicate the sub-release (in this case either it will blink twice or it won't blink at all). If this indicates that you have 1.00, your amp's behavior will not change from what it has been. If it indicates 1.02, it will change be as follows: The only change that you should see is that, on the affected (1.02 OTP) amps, when you first select an effect from edit mode (in other words, when you're first editing channel settings), its setting will reflect the current knob position, rather than an arbitrary default, and on two of the effects. You will also notice that the Tweak and 2nd Function controls are not reversed for the Chorus and Flanger effects. The changed control functions become Depth and Rate (Speed) instead of the previous Speed (Rate) and Depth/Feedback.
  21. Note: The Flextone II was released in 2000 and replaced by the Flextone III in 2003. The Flextone II is now a Legacy Product. Application Q: What are the presets on my Flextone II amplifier? A: The Flextone II are available from the manual download section. If you would like to return your unit to the original presets, please perform a factory reset (see the trouble shooting section). Q: What editing software works with the Flextone II? A: Line 6 Edit allows the deep editing of all the Flextone II presets. Line 6 Edit FAQ Q: How can I control my Flextone 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 Flextone 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. Q: How is the Flextone II different from the Flextone I? Are the older Flextone I amp models changed in any way, software-wise? A: The Flextone II XL has more amp models, more editing capabilities, XLR outs, external speaker outs, improved tone, and an improved power amp stage. The models in the Flextone II are changed from the Flextone I models. The new models match exactly the models in the POD 2.0, so that patches made on one are completely interchangeable with the other. Q: How can I find out which cabinet models are used by default for the amp models? A: Hold down the save and tap tempo buttons at the same time and switch between the cabinet models. The manual button will flash off when the selected cabinet model is passed on the knob. Q: What are the secondary functions for each of the Flextone II's knobs? A: The secondary function for each of the Flextone II's knobs is as follows: DRIVE: Drive Boost on/off BASS: Delay Feedback (how many times it repeats) MIDDLE: Delay Amount TREBLE: Presence on/off CHANNEL VOLUME: Volume Boost on/off REVERB: Noise Gate on/off EFFECT TWEAK: Tap Tempo time Q: How can I control the "Delay Level" on my Flextone II when using the Delay in conjunction with another effect? A: The Delay Level and Delay Feedback can be adjusted on the Flextone II by holding down the TAP TEMPO button and turning the MIDDLE knob for Delay Level and the BASS knob for Delay Feedback. Q: Will the delay feedback on the Flextone II series repeat indefinitely if it is turned all the way up? A: Yes. The delay feedback on the Flextone II series will repeat indefinitely if it is turned all the way up. To turn the delay feedback on the Flextone II all the way up, simply hold down the TAP TEMPO button while turning the BASS knob to 10. Setup/Connections Q: Does the Flextone II have a line out? A: The Flextone II has a headphone jack that doubles as a good direct out. To utilize it properly, you should use a stereo-to-dual mono insert cable and use it as a stereo out into 2 channels on your mixer/recorder. If you need XLR direct outs, you may want to check into a Flextone Plus or XL. Q: Which Line 6 floor controller(s) can I use with the Flextone II? A: Either the FB4 or Floorboard will control the Flextone II, but we recommend the Line 6 floorboard. Please be aware that the Line 6 Floorboard and FB4 are no longer in production but may still be special ordered or found through used gear dealers. Q: Does the Flextone II have an effects loop? A: Yes, the Flextone II has a stereo unbalanced effect loop, located before the Master volume. 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.
