      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. Saving with your foot

    Seeing as one can edit pretty much anything on the fly with your foot (which I think is a fab feature) I would have thought one should be able to save any changes with your foot as well. Is there a way of doing this? Am I missing something because its not really practical to have to keep remembering to press the save button or click a Mouse after a rehearsal or performance
  2. Hi, i found a picture of Petruccis preset for axe-fx (see attached file). Now, i have the following questions: How to achieve a similar signal chain in Helix native? What effects does he use? What could be the settings? I hope someone could help me. Thank you and best regards, alemas

  9. We've found that tones created while using the original 1.01 firmware can sometimes be corrupted, regardless if they are new or downloaded tones. This results in the device locking up, with a factory reset being needed for recovery (press and hold the Master Volume knob and the TAP button as you power up the unit). Firmwares at version 1.10 or later resolves this issue. Tones created in version 1.10 or later can no longer be corrupted like they would have under version 1.01. However, corrupted tones created in version 1.01 are still problematic when used in Firehawks updated to later firmware versions. We encourage those encountering this issue to update to the latest firmware via the Line 6 Updater software, then perform a factory reset. Please note that any tones not backed up to My Tones prior to a reset will be lost (corrupted tones cannot be uploaded because they crash the unit and thus can't be selected for uploading).
  10. AMPLIFi User Manual AMPLIFi FX100 User Manual AMPLIFi 75 & 150 Factory Presets Chart Full List and Descriptions of AMPLIFi Amps, Cabs, and Effects Your AMPLIFi device has a killer selection of presets to get you started on your journey to great guitar tone. The presets are organized into banks that each deliver to you a unique aspect of the AMPLIFi experience. In order to access these Factory Presets first make sure you have updated your AMPLIFi to firmware version 1.01, instructions for updating your AMPLIFI's firmware are available HERE. Afterwards, in the app, look under Tones and tap 'AMPLIFi 30/75/150/TT' to access these presets. You can also use a FBV Shortboard MKII to access these presets. AMPLIFi Greatest Hits: The first bank of 4 presets is designed to deliver a variety of sounds that will get you by in a pinch if you can't connect to a mobile device or footpedal. Song Based Banks: These banks are tones that match a variety of iconic guitar songs, organized by genre. Acoustic: This bank delivers a variety of sounds when using an acoustic guitar with a built-in piezo pickup system. Model Showcase: The Model Showcase banks are designed to feature particular individual amps and effects. Performance Banks: These banks each deliver a "Ready to Rock" bank tailored to specific genres. Each bank contains a basic rhythm, clean, solo boost and effected sound dialed in to work together as a bank. FX Heavy: This bank shows off some of the more esoteric and wacky capabilities of AMPLIFi. User Bank: While any patch location can be customized and overwritten, this bank offers you a blank canvas to create your own sound, or just to store some of your favorite online tonematches without disturbing the rest of the presets.

  13. Français Deutsch The Line 6 Guitar Amp within Reason can only handle single tone presets, there is no way to load a POD Farm 2 Dual Tone preset into a single Line 6 Guitar Amp device. However, if you were to split the Dual tones and save each tone as its own individual preset, you can load each preset into it's own Line 6 Guitar Amp within Reason and put then together using a Combinator device with mixer. Just select a Dual Tone you would like to use within the Standalone version of POD Farm 2 and click the 'DUAL' button to the right of the preset name at the top of the window and select 'Remove TONE B' first, then, select FILE>SAVE AS... to save the new single preset with 'Tone A' added at the end of the preset name. Next, reload the original Dual Tone, click the 'DUAL' button once again and select 'Remove TONE A', then select FILE>SAVE AS... to save this single tone preset with 'Tone B' added at the end of the preset name. Now, within Reason, you can create a Combinator, then a Mixer, and 2 Line 6 Guitar Amp devices, each with one of these new presets loaded into the device (Tone A in one, Tone B in the other), and summed together again with another mixer. Vous pouvez seulement utiliser un preset dans le plugin Line 6 Guitar Amp dans Reason Limited. Vous ne pouvez pas charger des presets Dual Tone de POD Farm 2 dans un Line 6 Guitar Amp. Mais si vous divisez le Dual Tones et l’enregistrez le en deux tons individuels, vous pouvez mettre les presets individuels dans son propre Line 6 Guitar Amp dans Reason Limited. Après, vous les pouvez combiner avec un Combinator. Sélectez un Dual Tone que vous voulez utiliser avec POD Farm2 et cliquez le bouton DUAL à droite du nom du preset et sélectez Remove Tone B. Enregistrez (File -> Save As… ou Fichier -> Enregistrer sous…) le fichiers avec Ton A dans le nom. Après, ouvrez le Dual Tone encore une fois et cliquez DUAL. Ce temps, cliquez Remove Tone A et enregistrez ce ton aussi avec Ton B dans le nom pour la reconnaissance. Dans Reason Limited, vous pouvez maintenant créer un Combinator et un Mixer avec 2 plugins Line 6 Guitar Amp. Ajoutez les deux tons A et B dans les deux Line 6 Guitar Amp. (Ton A dans un des amplis et Ton B dans l’autre.) Ajoutez un autre Mixer pour mélanger les deux amplis. Das Line 6 Guitar Amp Plugin in Reason Limited kann nur einzelne Presets benutzen, Sie können also keine POD Farm 2 Dual Tone Presets verwenden. Sie können jedoch den Dueal Tone spalten und beide Töne einzeln abspeichern dann diese in Reason Limited mit einem Mixer und Combinator wieder zusammenbringen. Wählen Sie dazu erst Ihren Dual Tone aus, und drücken Sie auf DUAL rechts neben dem Preset Namen. Hier wählen Sie dann Remove Tone B und speichern Sie das dann mit File -> Save As... (Datei -> Speichern unter...) mit Ton A im Namen ab. Laden Sie den selben Dual Tone dann nocheinmal und drücken Sie diesmal in DUAL auf Remove Tone A. Speichern Sie das Ganze dann wieder ab aber diesmal mit Ton B m Name. Zur Wïedererkennung. In Reason Limited können Sie dann einen Combinator erstellen, einen Mixer sowie 2 Line 6 Gitar Amps. Jedem Line 6 Guitar Amp Plugin weisen Sie dann jeweils einen des Töne zu, A oder B und mischen das dann wieder mit einem zweiten Mixer.

  15. 2x12 and 4x12 are not showing up on PODxt series Q: My manual refers to output modes "4x12" and "2x12", or "VIBE", but I can't find them on my POD XT Live A: We decided to use more intuitive, user-friendly terms on the POD XT Live, but unfortunately the manual was not updated. Where the manual mentions "4x12" and "2x12", it is referring to "Stack mode" and "Combo mode", respectively, in the Pod XT's "What am I connected to?" mode. Each of these modes offer the option of connecting through the "Front" of the amp or the "Pwramp" (back) section of the amp. When using the "Front" option, tone correction options are made available to shape the overall PODxt output to sound good in front of a combo amp. The "What are you connecting to" page previously offered an option for "Live: Front of 2x12 Combo", which was basically a "2x12 power amp with speakers" setting with some additional filtering to compensate for the sound of your combo amp's preamp section. This setting was replaced by the VIBE setting, which split out the speaker configuration and the combo preamp compensation into two different adjustable parameters. Incidentally, the VIBE setting that mapped to the old "combo mode" setting is "MIDHVY - 480Hz" when used along with the "Live: 2x12" DEST setting. PODxt set to MONO Q: How can I set the Podxt to mono if I'm connecting the Podxt to a mono amp? A: You will have to set the Podxt to "Live" mode. To do this, select the tuner button, turn the select knob until you see "What are you connected to" page. Turn the "Effect Tweak" knob to "Live 4X12 or 2X12" or "Stack" or "Combo". This will alow the Podxt outputs to be mono. EX-1 control parameters on Podxt Q: I am having a problem getting my PODxt to allow me to control the effect parameters via the expression pedal on the FBV Shortboard. A: The EX-1 expression pedal will control some functions and this is how you get them to work. 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. PODxt three stomp with FBV Q: Can the PODxt actually play three stomp box sounds when conected to a FBV? Section 9-7 of the pilots handbook seems to indicate that. A: These buttons are for the Vetta series of amps. With the PodXt, the Stomp2 button controls Compression on/off and Stomp3 controls Gate On/Off. This is explained in the documentation that ships with the FBV. Connecting any POD unit to an amplifier POD Connections, Routing and the 4 Cable Method Amp bypassed on PODxt Q: How do I bypass the Amp Models? A: In preset mode turn the amp model knob counter clock wise to Bypass with all the effects buttons off, this will put the Podxt/Bass PODxt in bypass, then "save". You are really making a bypass channel or bypass preset. Q: If I set the PODxt to bypass the amp sounds, is the preamp of the PODxt bypassd, will I get the pure tone of my amp? A:Yes, you can also save your setup as a preset (no amp model, just effects). Can you adjust the S/PDIF or AES/EBU output volume level? Press the I/O & Dig Select button on the right hand side of the POD / Bass PODxt Pro. Then press the Soft Button below GAIN and spin the EFFECT TWEAK knob to add up to 12 db of gain on the digital outs. This is useful to help cut down on excessive use of normalization after recording in the digital domain. Pod XT Input specs: Q: What is A.I.R. II? A: A.I.R. II is Line 6's second generation Acoustically Integrated Recording technology. It expands your sonic choices and creative options by allowing you to choose a variety of microphone models and adjust their placement in front of the cabinet. Microphone choices and placement options include models based on Shure SM-57, Sennheiser MD-421 and a Neumann U-67 - on- and off-axis. Line 6, GuitarPort, POD and Vetta are trademarks of Line 6, Inc.

  16. So you got the perfect sound... Now you want to save your own patch... Press 'SAVE' to bring you to the "SAVE TO:' screen. The bottom 4 knobs are critical to this process as they change the values that are directly positioned above. The first knob alternates between saving in Tone 1 and Tone 2, the third knob moves the cursor left and right, and the fourth knob changes the character that the cursor is positioned under. Use these knobs to select whether you want to save the patch to Tone 1 or Tone 2 and to change the name of the patch itself. Once you have set the name and tone position, use the save knob to choose which bank you want to save this to, then press the save knob again to save it.
  17. Lowdown 110 and LD15 F.A.Q.s

    Applications Q: What are the presets on the Lowdown Studio 110 and LD 15 amplifier? A: The Studio 110 and LD 15 have four savable channels directly on the amplifier, which are Clean (Eden model), R&B (Ampeg B15 fliptop model), Rock (Ampeg SVT model), and Grind (Sansamp model). The Studio 110 also has a “synth” option, accessed by pressing the R&B and Rock models simultaneously. The LD15 has a hidden “Brit model” which is accessed by pressing/holding the Clean and R&B model buttons as your turn on the power. The Clean and R&B lights will flash back and forth to indicate that you have changed the Clean model into the Brit model. Q: Is there a list for suggested settings for the LD Studio110 or LD15 amplifier? A: No, there is no preset list for the LD 110 or LD15, but you can download the dowdown Preset Chart from the manuals section and experiment with the settings (taking note that there is no amp model or channel volume control) Lowdown Presets Q: Are there any video tutorials I can view to learn more about the Lowdown? A: Please see the Lowdown Movies in the product description page. Lowdown Movies Q: Is there an editing software that works with the Lowdown amplifier? A: No, there is no editing software for the Lowdown series as there is no way to connect the lowdown amplifier to your computer. Q: Is there a "manual mode" for a LD Studio110 or LD15 like on the other LD series amplifiers? A: No, there is no manual mode for the LD Studio110 for the LD15. Q: How do I change the tuner's reference frequency on the Lowdown? A: The Lowdown Tuner Reference Frequency cannot be changed - it's 440 all the way. Setup/Connections Q: Is there a direct out on the Lowdown 110 or LD 15 amplifier? A: Yes, there are balanced line level XLR and unbalanced 1/4" outputs on the Lowdown 110, both of which output processed tone. The LD-15 has an unbalanced ¼” output which will output processed tone (which doubles as a headphone output). The XLR output of the Studio 110 is not affected by the output volume of the amplifier, and will send a cabinet simulated tone to your mixing console. The unbalanced ¼” output of the Studio 110 and LD15 is affected by the master volume setting, so keep this in mind when using this as a direct recording connection. Q: What if I do not want the cabinet tone but rather a unaffected tone (like a DI Box to go to the PA?) 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. Be sure to have the instrument output of the DI go into the instrument input of the Lowdown amplifier to get sound from the Lowdown. Q: Can I use a Line 6 controller with the Lowdown Studio 110 or the LD15? A: No, there is no CAT-5 jack on the Studio 110 or the LD15 for a Line 6 controller. Q: Does the Lowdown Studio 110 or the LD15 have an effects loop? A: No, neither the Lowdown Studio 110 or the LD15 has an effects loop. Q: Can I connect an external pre-amp (i.e. Line 6 POD unit) to the Lowdown Studio 110 or the LD15? A: Yes, an external preamp can be connected to the instrument input of the Lowdown, be sure to send an instrument level signal rather than a line level signal to avoid clipping and/or damage to the Lowdown. An external pre-amp can also be run into the MP3 input jack, which would relegate the Lowdown amplifier to a “powered speaker”. Q: Can I connect an external cabinet to a Lowdown Studio 110 or the LD15? A: No, there are no external speaker connections on the Lowdown combo series Studio 110 or the LD15 Specifications Q: What's the rated wattage output and speaker size of the Lowdown Studio 110 and the LD15?? LD15: 15 watts/ (1) 8” speaker Studio 110: 75 watts/ (1) 10” speaker Registration and Warranty Information Q: What is the warranty on the Lowdown Series?

Line 6 Amp Trouble Shooting Q: I am noticing hiss in the headphones with the Lowdown Studio 110? A: This may not be an issue on all Lowdown Studio 110 amplifiers. Depending on what brand of headphones you are using, as well as what amp model/settings are up, you may or may not hear hiss. Individual preference will determine if the perceived signal/noise ratio is acceptable. Please DO NOT return your Lowdown Studio 110 for a replacement unit if you feel that this is an issue. Our service centers would be happy to fix this issue for you. Keep in mind; this fix requires that one of our technicians perform a custom modification to the headphone amplifier, which requires that we open up your amp. The reason that some users may hear hiss is due to the gain structure design of this amp and a couple of surface mount resisters need to be replaced. Customer Support is unable to guide you through the repair and only our authorized service centers can take care of this fix. NOTE: If a customer opens up their amp and attempts to alter their electronics in any way, they will void your manufacturer’s warranty on their Lowdown Studio 110. Also, keep in mind that the repair may take several weeks based on the specific service center’s turn around time. If the nearest service center is too far from your location, and you need to ship your unit to that service center, Line 6 WILL NOT cover the associated shipping costs If you are aware of the above information and you still wish to have your amp repaired, Line 6 will cover the costs of parts and labor. Please have your receipt ready before you contact a service center. If you cannot find your receipt, please talk to the dealer where the amp was purchased, and request a duplicate receipt.

  18. Note: The Spider III was released in 2006 and discontinued in 2010. The Spider III is now listed as a Legacy Product. Q: How are the Artist preset banks categorization and alphabetized? A:When looking at the list of the banks in the unit, the banks seem to be broken into four different sections: 1. Albert Lee - Julien K 2. Ash - Volto 3. The Accident Experiment - Thursday 4. Songs 50's - Misc. Fun Each of the first 3 sections (artist banks) is alphabetized. Is there a reason all the artist presets overall aren't alphabetized? The artist banks are categorized by Clean, Dirty and Heavy: 1. Albert Lee - Julien K: Cleaner patches 2. Ash - Volto: Midgainy patches 3. The Accident Experiment - Thursday: Heavily overdriven patches Q: How do I perform a factory reset on my Spider III? Line 6 Device Factory Reset Procedures Q: How do I use the compare mode (to find where the knobs were originally set)? A: Press and hold the Tap button, then turn the Amp Models knob. This activates Spider III's "Compare mode". Now turn any knob other than Amp Model and Master Volume, and the channel lights will tell you whether you need to turn that knob up (Channel A lights) or down (Channel D lights) to match the stored setting. The Channel B & C lights will be lit at the same time once the knob position matches the stored setting exactly. Q: How do I connect the Spider III HD 150 to the Spider Cabinet? A: The Spider III HD 150 is designed to see a load on *both * speaker outputs by connecting the left and the right inputs to the Spider cabinet with speaker cables. Running the Spider III HD 150 into a 4 ohm load may result in damage to the amplifier. Please see the following link for more information: Cabinet Connection and Ohm F.A.Q. Q: Can I use two Spider III cabinets with the Spider III HD 150? A:The Spider III HD 150 was designed to power a single Spider III Stereo Cabinet with a stereo 8 ohm load. Using two Spider III cabs would require a modification to each cab so that they are each rewired to produce a 8 ohm mono load. This modification would preferably be done by an authorized Line 6 service center, which can be located from the Service Center link on the Support page. Q: How do I connect external speakers to my Spider III 150 amplifier? A: You will need to disconnect the internal speakers (covering the dry-solder clips with electrical tape) and connect both external speaker outputs to an 8 ohm (or higher) load. Do not connect just one side, as this may cause a power amp failure. Powering the internal speakers along with a external speakers may cause a power amp failure and is not supported. Q: What type of speaker is used on the Spider III combo series? Spider III 15: Custom 15 (4 ohm) Spider III 30: Celestion G12E50 (4 ohm) Spider III 75/150: Celestion G12P80 (8 ohm) Spider III 120:(2) Celestion G10P80 (8 ohm)
  19. 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. Q: Can I connect an external pre-amp (i.e. Line 6 POD unit) to the Flextone II? A: You can connect an external preamp into the front of the unit or the effects loop return of the Flextone II. Be sure to use a ¼” dummy jack in the instrument input to send the amplifier output to the speakers. Q: How should I connect my speaker cabinet(s) to the Flextone II? A: : Please see the following document (or your manual) for more information on connecting cabinets to your Flextone II. Cabinet Connection and Ohm F.A.Q. Q: What speakers are used in the Flextone II? A: The Flextone II amplifiers shipped with Line 6 "tubetone" speakers, which were manufactured by Celestion. The speakers are 80 watts and either 8 or 16 ohms. See the Line 6 Store for replacement speakers. Registration/Warranty Q: What is the warranty on the Flextone II? A: The warranty on the Flextone II is twelve months from the date of purchase. Q: How can I register my Flextone II? Product Registration F.A.Q. Troubleshooting/Service Q: How can I check the version of software on a Flextone II? A:* Hold down the C button as you power up. The D channel will flash and then the SAVE channel will flash. The number of D flashes = X The number of Save flashes = .X So if the D flashes twice and the SAVE button flashes twice, your version is 2.2. Q: My guitar's sustain is cut off after several seconds. Is there a way to stop this? A: This is likely because of the noise gate on the Flextone II. To turn it off, hold the Tap Tempo button and turn the Reverb knob down. To turn it back on, hold Tap and turn the Reverb knob up. Q: How do I perform a factory reset on my Flextone II? A: The factory reset for a Flextone II is to hold the A B C D Buttons while powering the amp. Q: My amplifier will not store presets anymore. What can I do? A: We use a 3v lithium coin cell battery in the Flextone II to store the user presets, a common replacement is the Panasonic BR2325-1HG. The current battery will need to be de-soldered and replaced with a new battery. If you are not confident in doing this replacement, it should be performed by an authorized Line 6 Service Center.

Q: Can you change the cabinet models on the Flextone III? A: Like the Flextone II, the Flextone III allows you to choose whatever cabinet model you want to go with your chosen amp model. A 100 watt Marshall through a 6 in. Supro speaker you say? You can - you know, if you're into that sort of thing... Seriously though, depress the amp model selector and start a-twistin'. You'll see GREEN lights, indicating that the cab model is being edited. There are 15 cabinet models to choose from, with the smallest starting at "Line 6 Crunch". Turn the knob clockwise and you'll get increasingly larger cab models until you land on a big ol' Mesa Boogie 4X12 found under "Gib Explorer". Turn to "Line 6 Clean" to bypass the cabinet models. It's all spelled out in the manual on page 3*28. Cabinet models can also be chosen via MIDI Continuous Controller #71 using values of 0-15, if you're inclined that way. Q: Will my Flextone III Plus power a 4x12 cabinet? A: It's fine to connect a 4x12 cabinet to the Flextone III amplifier, please ensure the cabinet is set to "8 ohm mono ( Left only )" to protect your Flextone.

A: Line 6 speakers are custom built by Celestion to provide the flattest speaker response in combination with amp modeling. These speakers can be ordered directly the Line 6 Store. Registration/Warranty Q: What is the warranty on the Flextone III A: The warranty on the Flextone III is twelve months from the date of purchase. Q: How can I register my Flextone III? Product Registration F.A.Q. Troubleshooting/Service Q: How do I perform a factory reset on my Flextone III? A: The factory reset for a Flextone III is to hold the A and D Buttons while powering the amp. Q: How do I update the Flash on my Flextone III? A: See the following links before reflashing your Flextone III: Line 6 Monkey Installation and F.A.Q. MIDI: Functionality, Control, and Connectivity with Line 6 devices 1) Run Line 6 Monkey and connect to your Flextone III using the information provided in the links above. select the "Updates"tab, then select "Flash Memory", then "Update Selection". 2) If Monkey asks you to register, just click "Remind Me Later" 3) Monkey will ask if you want to continue, select "Yes" 4) Accept the software agreement, then select "OK" 5) Select your preference of how to deal with your current presets, then select "OK" 6) Select "Yes" to update the Flash on your Flextone III 7) Monkey will read the patches on your Flextone III 8) Monkey will then update the new flash memory to your Flextone III 9) Turn your amplifier off and on as instructed 10) Your unit is now updated. Q: My amp is locked up (i.e. most/all the lights are on) and it will not function correctly. Can I put the amp in a "safe mode" to reflash using Line 6 Monkey? A: Hold down A as you power up the amp to get into safe mode, then run the Monkey and reflash the firmware. Flextone III and Line 6 Edit Compressor Issues There is a known issue regarding the function of the compressor in Line 6 Edit with a Flextone III. A. The Comp button on the Amp and in Edit respond appropriately. B. The single Comp knob in Edit will control the Comp Amount or Gain (there is no Amp control for this) C. Holding down the Comp button on the Amp and turning Delay or Mod knob on the Amp controls the Comp Threshold and not the Amount (there is no control in Edit for this). Threshold is interactive with Drive and Tone controls - e.g.: If Drive and Bass controls are near maximum, you may need to adjust the Threshold to a higher level to avoid sounding too "squashed". This is where you'd use the Line 6 Edit control. Just to clear things up, you will not see Line 6 Edit's COMP knob move while you hold down COMP and turn the MOD button on the Flextone. You can use "Get Edit Buffer" before saving your tone. This will assure that adjustments made to the Comp Gain on the amp are retained in the Tone (though it isn't shown onscreen, the value that's set on the Amp is kept in the patch.) Q: It seems as if the effects on my Flextone III are behaving differently since I updated to the 1.1 software A: 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). 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: 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. Q: My amp seems to be malfunctioning. What can I do as an end user?
