Hi guys,

 

I'm wondering how I can save presets to my shortboard mkii? I'm using it in combination with a Spider IV 75 and do most of my edits in the edit software on my mac. On the product page of the shortboard is says

 

 

When paired with Spider® IV and Spider Valve™ MkII guitar amplifiers, the footswitches can activate many on-board amp effects including Quick Loop, Pitch Glide and Smart Harmony, and provide up to 128 user-created presets.

but I can't find a way to save any preset the the board. Anyone knows how to do this? Thanks!

The presets are saved in the amp, not the Shortboard.   Not sure about the '128' - the Spider IV 75 has 16 banks of 4 presets for a total of 64.  I'm guessing that the Shortboard allows you to hit a switch that turns on or off one of the FX so that you have one preset with/one without.

Switching a effect on or off isn't a preset is it? Here is the URL to the product page where the 128 presets is presented as a feature.

"UP TO" seems to be the key caveat!   Maybe the Line 6 people originally had plans to offer more preset banks on some future amps.
