The BUNDLES and PRESETS files which can be saved and loaded to and from your computer using "Spider IV Edit", have the exact same parameters structure (that I won't detail here), at the EXCEPTION of ONE SINGLE DIGIT in both BUNDLES files (.s4b as file extension) and PRESET files (.s4e as file extension). The BUNDLES files for the Spider IV 75 have "02" as exadecimal value in the 12th position from the beginning of the file, and the BUNDLES files for the Spider IV 150 have "04" as exadecimal value in the 12th position from the beginning of the file, as shown in the scre en copy about BUNDLES. The PRESETS files for the Spider IV 75 have "02" as exadecimal value in the 20th position from the beginning of the file, and the PRESETS files for the Spider IV 150 have "04" as exadecimal value in the 20th position from the beginning of the file, as shown in the screen copy about PRESETS. You can export a PRESET or a BUNDLE from on amp to the other, BUT, you have to edit the PRESET or the BUNDLE file in order to have the appropriate value in the position previously mentioned. After exporting, you will have to edit the "volumes" of the presets, because both amps have a different responses in terms of "balance of volume" between different amp models.
I typically gig with a Spider IV 150 and am looking at potential backup scenarios. 1) buy a Spider IV 75 and upload all my current gig patches to it 2) get an HD500 and backup all my gig patches to that, and bring any one of the other amps I've accumulated through the years. One thing I haven't been able to find easily is whether the patches on an updated Spider IV will "translate" to an HD500. Anyone ever done this? Thanks, Curtis
I have two Spider IV amp heads, both say 150 watts on the back However, one says Spider IV and 150 Watts on the front The other doesn't Is one: a secondary market item? an earlier release? refurbed? but to be clear, both do say 150 watts on the rear by the transformer fins
