Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Just noticed Line 6 Spider V amps have just arrived.Does anyone know if the Amp Models/Effects are based on the Pod Hd or the newer Line 6 Helix Engine?

ptobably based on whatever the previous spider was, or maybe the firehawk

Well perhaps a Line 6 staff member can enlighten us, on what the Amp Models/Effects engines are based on the Spider V amp ?

It is an updated version of the amp/fx model set found on AMPLIFi, which is honestly a massive upgrade for the Spider Amp series that have always been their own separate model set. Also the models have been tweaked for the newly designed box and speakers.

I think you are right. I have an Amplifi 30 and a Spider V 60 and both seem to match 95-98% of the models. The Amplifi seems to be, in turn, an updated version of the POD X3 models. I used to have a Pod X3 but I sold it years ago to get an HD500, but weeks ago I found the manual and looked at the models and they seem to be similar for the most part.

I can't seem to find info on the modeling engine either. I did notice that Line 6's Firehawk 1500 online info screams at you that it used the HD modeling engine. The fact that Line 6 is silent the Spider V modeling engine causes me to have to assume that it's older X3 or XT technology. Any clarification Line 6?

According to Digital Igloo, the modeling engine in the Spider V series is an updated and reworked version of the Pod Farm modeling engine. I think they started with that version because there are so many different amps modeled, and then massaged them to work with the Spider series.
