Hi, I've just got a new Spider V 20 MkII as an upgrade to my Spider III. I was surprised and disappointed to hear the loud buzzing and high-pitched whine coming from the amp on all settings except clean. My Spider III is completely silent on all modes, including INSANE. The Spider V is pretty much unusable because of the noise emitted when there is no significant input from a guitar. I have tried changing guitars, changing instrument cables, using different power sockets, moving to different rooms, but nothing seems to improve it. I can remove a lot of the noise using the Spider Remote noise gate and adjusting gains, but I don't see why that should be necessary with out of the box, factory preset tones. Is there something wrong with my Spider V amp or is this just something this amp does? Any help in getting rid of this unwanted buzz and whine is appreciated. Thanks
Hi There, Since 2011 I use of 10 Line-6 XD-V70L systems for a music theatre group. I combine the body packs with lavs fron Microphone Madness lollipop well as Sennheiser MKE-2's. However, from the very first beginning the signal is polluted with a very high pitched whine, especially when the belt pack is not in direct contact with the skin of the actor. We avoid the problem by wearing the packs close to the body, but in two topics I read about a whining noise which might be the same as mine: http://line6.com/support/topic/8372-xd-v75-distortion-again/ http://line6.com/support/topic/7389-input-impedance-tbp12-beltpack-when-pin-4-tied-to-pin-3/?hl=whine&do=findComment&comment=53250 Do you expect the problem to disappear when shorting pin 4 and 3, of is there an other known issue with these (slightly aged) packs?
