  1. 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. II: (Note: Before performing the calibration routine, please disconnect any expansion expression pedals IE: EX-1) 1) Hold the D button while connecting the CAT-5 cable on the FBV. The display will read 'CALIBRATE PEDAL' until the D button is released, at which point it will read '1 PEDAL TOE'. 2) Press and hold the internal pedal toe-switch until the LCD changes to '2 PEDAL MIN'. This should occur instantly. 3) Set the heel to (minimum) position, press the D button. The LCD will change to '3 LCD MAX'. 4) Set the toe position (maximum) and press the D button. The LCD will change to 'CHECK VALUE 127'. 5) Move the pedal and verify that the value reaches 0 in the minimum position and 127 in the maximum position. 6) Press D to exit FBV Express Mk. II: 1) Hold D while powering on the FBV. Upon release, the pedal display will read '1'. 2) Press and hold the pedal toeswitch until the 7 segment display changes to '2'. This should occur instantly. 3) Set the heel to the heel (minimum) position, press the D button. The 7 segment display will change to '3â'. 4) Set the toe position (maximum) and press the D button. 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. Move both pedals to their center positions roughly halfway between the MAX and MIN position. 3. Press AMP1 + AMP2 + PITCHSHIFT/TREMOLO and hold for three seconds. This will reset the calibration values for the pedals to their default values. 4. Press AMP1 + AMP2 + DELAY and hold for three seconds. This will now display the pedal information for the LEFT pedal. 5. Move the LEFT pedal to its MAX position (pedal all the way toe down) and press down hard enough to actuate the pedal's toe switch. NOTE: You will only see 000 in the first column (AAA) until you click the toe switch down. 6. Move the LEFT pedal to its MIN position and press down (pedal all the way heel down). 7. Check the range on the MAX (number displayed on right hand side of the display) and MIN (number displayed second from right hand side of display) values to see that they are within spec (Pedal Testing section above). 8. Move the pedal to its MIN position. With the pedal just sitting there, check the number displayed in the second column (BBB). It should read 000. Press the pedal down at the heel position. This number should still read 000. 9. Press AMP1 + AMP2 + MODULATION and hold for three seconds. This will now display the pedal information for the RIGHT pedal. 10. Repeat steps 7 through 9 only for the RIGHT pedal. FBV Series Troubleshooting procedures: Calibrate the pedal (using the methods previously discussed). Ensure that all washers/nuts/screws are seated correctly and tight. Use a different CAT-5 cable to be sure the cable is functioning correctly. Use a different Line 6 device to ensure the problem is not in the CAT-5 input of the Line 6 device. If the unit is out of warranty: Open the bottom of the unit by removing the screws, and tighten the hex nut that holds the pedal to the chassis (the torque is 19 psi.) If you have no success with the troubleshooting suggestions above, please take your controller to the nearest Authorized Service Center.

  3. Can I copy settings from one bank to another? The manual is pretty sparse for this pedal controller. Thanks
  4. Hello Guitar Pros and sonic experts. I got an issue with my FBV Shortboard MkII because it goes blank when i connect it to my POD 2.0. It does not seem to control the thing. Am i doing something wrong here? or is the Shortboard MkII just not able to control or not compatible to my POD 2.0? and if not, is it possible to mod the FBV shortboard MkII so that it can control my POD 2.0? I need your help. Pls advise. Rgds NT
  5. Hi, My shortboard has developed a fault. It powers up, the volume and wah lights flash once and the display says LINE 6 - then nothing happens. None of the buttons work. I've tried different cat5 cables. Any ideas? Is there a way to reset it? I'm using it with a Pod X3 Pro. Thank you.
  6. Hello everyone I recently bought an fbv shortboard for my pod hd pro. Unfortunately, when plugging the shortboard in to my pod, it simply isn't being detected at all. No lights, no functions. I then hooked it up to my computer via USB were it was detected. I updated all drivers and flash via line 6 monkey. I couldnt find any help on the internet on how to get the fbv to work with the pod! This is really really disappointing. However, I then plugged the shortboard into to VARIAX input of my pod (I know this is not were it goes, but i needed to find out, whether the cable worked at all) and the shortboard was detected, but i simply couldnt do anything with it. Would someone please tell me, what I am doing wrong? P.S. I tried calibrating the pedal and that wont work (via USB to computer) either.
  7. Has anyone ever actually tried a FBV Shortboard Mk1 with an Amplifi product via the FBV input? I realise everything says officially only the MkII (2) Shortboard will work, but given the only real difference appears to be a lack of a USB port, I'm thinking it should work? Obviously I would not be able to re-program the board via the USB software like the MkII. Thanks, M.

    Which foot controller

    Greetings, Recently purchased a Spider V/120. Immediately I see that I will need a foot controller; I think I knew that but I wanted validation. My brain (wallet) tell me that the Mk II Shortboard is a good deal now at $149.00 Vs the FBV 3 Pro for $249.00. Functionally, it seems the Shortboard does everything one would need, well except, of course, for the pretty lights. I like the pretty lights. Other than the aforementioned pretty lights and the updated buttons/looks, are there any substantive differences? I'm really tired of wasting my money and if there is no real value I would really prefer to know up front. Thanks for any advice anyone may offer. It is much appreciated. Regards, wtrawick North End Studio Anchorage AK
  9. Hi, I've recently purchased the FBV shortboard mk2 to replace my beringer fcb1010 as a midi control pedal. As I'm a violinist none of Line6's amps are really suitable for me, but I'd love to take advantage of the functionality the rj45 port enables. There seems to be a bit of info regarding using non line6 foot pedals via rj45 with line 6 amps, but not the other way around. Is anyone able to help out with how it should be wired? Thanks heaps
  10. I purchased a FBV Shortboard MKII today for my LD300 bass amp. Works splendid, except for 1 thing: I cant go back to manual mode, using the shortboard. The amp's manual says that i need to keep the active preset pressed until the amp goes into manual mode, but that doesnt happen. I also tried to tap it once, keep it pressed, but nothing works. What am i doing wrong? btw, Shortboard has the latest firmware loaded.

    Issues with shortboard mk2

    Hi guys, I have googled this problem and scanned the forums and have not seen any solutions. What I want to do is be able to change the ABCD on my pedals in the banks to my own settings. Example: I want to play tool lateralus. (bank1) A) intro B)course C)solo ect. but then switch to bank 2 for the next song. I guess the problem is I do not want the presets that are already in place, I would like to alter them to fit my own playstyle. I cannot plug in the spider jam to my computer as it physically just cant do that. So I am all out of ideas.

    FBV MKII and Spider valve MKII

    Hi all I'm not sure if this is the right category to post this topic, but here goes.. I've got a spider valve 112 MKii and an FBV shortboard mkII. I also have the UX2 sound card which I use with pod farm 2 software. Now I use the shortboard to do all the good things I can do with the Spider Valve, but I also want to use it as a controller for the pod farm. I've read the FBV manual and I've seen I can do that and also save setting patches for the FBV. My question is this, if I connect the FBV to my computer and farm2, change settings and save a patch and then unplug everything and plug the FBV to the Spider Valve, will it work as before? Or do I have to save a special patch for the SV somewhere and load it everytime I want to use it with my amp? I guess whatever the answer is, the same would be true for the FBV Express mkii, right? Thanks in advance!!
  13. Hi Everyone, I'm seriously considering to buy the Amplifi 75 and also the FBV Shortboard MKII. I've been reading the threads here and I must say I don't feel confident enough to buy them because I don't have a service center or anything nearby I can return them to. Once I buy them, they are with me for life. As I read, after the 2.x firmware update, Android can control the Amplifi as well. Could you tell me anything about this? Are there connectivity issues or anything else? How has been your experience so far? I have an Android phone (Xiaomi MI3), I'm hoping this will work with it but ideally I'd like to use my Microsoft Surface Pro 3 with an Android emulator running on it to emulate a tablet. Or is there another way to control it from Windows (10)? Are there any major differences between the phone and tablet version of the app? Despite all the problems people are experiencing, are they worth to buy? Thank you in advance. Cheers!
  14. Hi everyone, I'm still reasonably new to the Line 6 world so bear with me. I have a AMPLIFi 150 and a Shortboard MKII which I use when my iPad isn't nearby to switch between presets, etc. My question is, can I use a Mission Engineering Expression pedal (say as a wah?) with the AMPLIFi + shortboard? I have it attached to the MKII but I don't know how (or if?) the AMPLIFi will recognize it? Thanks!
  15. Hi everyone, I'm still reasonably new to the Line 6 world so bear with me. I have a AMPLIFi 150 and a Shortboard MKII which I use when my iPad isn't nearby to switch between presets, etc. My question is, can I use a Mission Engineering Expression pedal (say as a wah?) with the AMPLIFi + shortboard?

  16. I picked up a Spider IV 30 and a FBV Shortboard MKI. Can I make them work together or have I wasted some money? Where can I get a manual for the FBV Shortboard MkI, they don't have them on the Line 6 webpage? Thanks for any info you can supply me. David
  17. So I just got the FBV Shortboard MkII a couple of days ago and I've figured most of it out but I can not for the life of me figure how to get the tap tempo to work with a delay that I have on my Pod Hd Pro X. I've figured out how to assign certain effects to my shortboard but I just can't get the tap tempo to work. Thanks in advance for anyones help!

    AMPLIFi with FBV 1 controller?

    Does anyone know if the AMPLIFi can be used with the Fbv 1 shortboard, and if so, what all can it do? I just bought a Flextone 3 amp for fun, but I want to get the floorboard for it soon and I was hoping to be able to use it with the AMPLIFi also.

    HOW TO USE LOOPER ON POD HD PRO

    HI So Im currently running through a pod hd pro through my 5150 and using a line 6 shortboard MKII(not the express). I have no clue how to use the looper function. There is no block in the actual unit and no "looper" button on my pedal. I have read that you CAN still use the looper function with this pedal and that its a global function(thats why there's no block in the chain). I need some help asap. Thanks!
  21. Hello everyone, I was wondering if I could use a friend's Pod Floor Plus simply as a footswitch controller on stage for my Pod HD Pro. The things is that I only want the Floor Pod to switch the presets of my HD Pro and to assign the effects to the buttons (as it can eb done in a shortboard MK II). How would it be connected? Thanks in advance to you! :) Xavi
  22. is there not a way to connect my MKII Shortboard via USB and download new tones to use on my Spider III 150w amp head? ALSO, isn't there a way I can connect the MKII and "fine tune" my effects I currently have on there? for example: custom naming my banks/presets... etc etc. just getting started on this and any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks, ace
  23. Hello, I recently bought a FBV Shortboard MKII to go with my Spider IV 120. I've connected up to my laptop using the correct cables with the intention of updating the firmware and using Spider Online. However, I downloaded Monkey and tried to update the Flash Memory update for the amp. Every single time I try, I get the following message. "Spider IV 120 update failed. (Code 8000000A) An undefined error occurred. Try the update again making sure the cables are still connected." Now I can't use the amp at all, as it's stuck on a menu saying "Ready to Update." :unsure: I also cannot seem to factory reset the amp at all. I really don't know what to do. PLEASE help anyone?! :(
  24. Hey there, Before i bought a pod hd, i literally crawled through the web to see whether someone has experience in using the pod with a wireless and/or h&k switchblade combo and control everything with an mk2 shortboard. I didn’t find anything usefull so for anyone out there looking for this setup this is for you. First, my signal chain goes like this: >> XLR-Out >> Mic-In POD HD Pro Guitar >> Wireless Shure SLX14 >>FX Return H&K Switchblade Combo 50 (without -10db) >> Unbalanced Out >> LineL/Mono in POD HD Pro The Wireless is at -10db Mic-Input is at 100% (just to make the setup easier) Bass-Reduction is active -20db is active For the standard patches i use mainly only one pre-amp per patch. Several amps have very...i mean very low output (e.g. the VOX AC 30 TB) i try to figure out if this is my error or by design. Any tip is appreciated. The sound? it’s absolutely fantastic. Much more than i was hoping for. It was actually so good, that i put all my effect pedals aside and don't use a 4CM method. I didn't sell them yet, because the pod has to prove itself road-able. It’s in a SKB-Rack with short cables to the wireless, but it has to take some smashing and staking etc. so, we'll see. For high gains i use sometimes up to 2 noise gates (threshold lower than 40% to avoid weird sounds). The Switchblade is just set to the clean channel, with everything turned off, and the B/M/T/G are in middle position. Maybe you add a tick more presence, since this will give some more punch to the tone. And our technician showed me a glorious trick: If you would like to just add gain, but not volume, assign the drive to the exp. Pedal with your desired value in max. and min. then assign the output of the same distortion effect to the same exp. Pedal, but set the max.-value to e.g. 30% and the min. value to e.g. 100%. You need to twiddle a bit so you get the amount right. With that setup, you add gain and lower output and vice versa. Hope this helped. Cheers exile
  25. I am trying to hook up my computer for the first time to board. Plug the USB cable in but the board doesn't recognize it. I am using a Macbook Pro running Mavericks. What am I doing wrong. Can't update Line 6 Monkey because no matter what update I run it asks me to run it again. Help. Not what I signed up for. And is there an editor for the Spider Mark II here somewhere?
