Amplifi mods

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone and sorry for bad English.

I'm looking for help to make a few changes to amplifi150.

The first is connect female input jack stereo to FX pot so you can use an expression pedal to control the assigned parameter.

The second thought if possible to connect a looper always inserting an input / output jack in the internal circuit type a send/return.

The first mod seems simple enough, for a second I do not know where to find the point where the interrupt output signal. Some of you have already had the opportunity to open the amplified and thus could give me some advice?

I have thought about how to use a looper. I could take the signal from the headphone jack to a looper, then put the looper output into a mixer with the original signal. A setup of foot switches to route signal to looper or not and a simple mod to the output jack on the Amplifi so that the amp section is still used would be required.

Hello Ginozzo. I don't know if you realize that you will likely void any warranty on the amp if you try and modify it.

I realize it's a  warrenttee void but has anyone figured out where in the circuit of the Amplifi 150  you could get a direct input into the preamp/ power amp section. I want to connect directly to the stereo amp area with a stereo line level external preamp (Heix) bypassing the on board effects  perhaps adding a pair of 1/4" inputs (a la a return circuit) and or XLRs. 

 

I'm not a tech but this should not be that hard to do and would make my Amplifi 150 which is gathering duct usable again.  Secondly - is it possible to BlueTooth two  Amplifi's at the samw time? (or Firehawk 1500s for that matter!!)

 

ANY ONE PLEASE!!!!!!

If you connect an IPad to the USB port on the Amplifi (using the apple camera connection kit) and then use some looper software on the Ipad - Loopy for example, it works just like it's connected to an FX send/return - it is able to record the output from the amp and play back loops via the amp simultaneously - in the same way that connecting a computer to the USB port and installing the driver allows you to record and playback via the Amplifi.

 

I have read elsewhere that it's possible to connect a USB audio interface to the USB port on the Amplifi and use the In/Out audio sockets on the interface as a send/return, but I've never been able to get it to work correctly - I think It needs to be connected via a powered USB hub so that it powers the interface...

Duh if you can't figure out that's what the aux in is for you shouldn't be messing with the modding!!!! And if you are doing this you are bypassing all the modeling and processing. WTF is the point of having the amplifi? Do you like the way it looks?
