FBV 3 won't change LED colour

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just got the FBV 3 pedal. Great stuff! BUT, why isn't it possible to change the colours of the LED's? They are red... but I tried the pedal at Muikmesse 2016 in Frankfurt a couple of weeks ago, and the colours are different... yellow, green... etc.

 

I am using it with the Amplifi TT. Do I need a special software or what am I doing wrong? 

 

Thanks for answering.

I've not got the FBV 3 pedal, but what I've read and heard the light colour changes only work with the FH1500 at present.

 

Wheather a software update is on the cards from line 6 to fix this I don't know?

So I'm forced theoretically to buy the fh1500 to get all fuctions?!?! Hmmmm, well!

 

On the packaging there is the note it works woth the TT. No hint the colour changes aren't Wirkung with e.g. the TT!

 

I've bot the latest update...

 

Somebody any idea?!

I have the Firehawk 1500 but my LEDs won't change on my FBV3 they stay Orange

You should get the color coded LED rings when using FBV3 with FH1500. I would first start by making sure your FBV3 is up to date with the most current firmware. To update FBV3 plug FBV 3 into your computer USB, run the Line 6 Updater application available for free at line6.com/software , and then update your unit to the latest firmware. It would also be a good idea to update your FH1500 to the latest firmware as well. If this does not solve your issue you will have to open a support ticket with Line 6 directly.

Can you change the led colors when using the Spyder V?

pretty sure I read somewhere the FBV3 works with amplifi, but led colours dont change.  I think also this pedal came out after amplifi, so compatibility is not 100%.

Guessing it is because there is no functions in amplifi/firehawk to change led colours.

 When connecting FBV 3 to a Spider V amp you will get the color coded rings on the FBV 3. The color of the rings indicates what type of effect is assigned to that foot-switch (delay=green, modulation=blue, overdrive/dist=yellow), but you can't customize the color of an effect. The LED colors will change according to what type of effect is assigned.

Just got the FBV3 and really chuffed with it EXCEPT that in my case the FS1,2,3,4,5 buttons stay Red.

I am using it with an Amplifi75. Using latest firmware.

When I run the control App on an iPad I can see the different colours for Delay/ Stomp etc.

With my set up is there any way I can make the colours change on the FBV3?

Cheers Ted

Hi Ted, FBV 3 is compatible with the Amplifi series but unfortunately only in function. All the footswitches will function properly, but you will not get the color coded LED rings, just the red as you have experienced.
