New to Line 6 - Need a little help

Recommended Posts



Lovely wifey just bought me a Spider IV for Christmas and have been playing with it since then. Now sitting down to read through the manuals etc but still trying to figure out a couple of things. Any advice appreciated


1. Is there an edit feature for Chromebooks?

2. How do I get a custom tone (S4E) from my Chromebook to the amp?

3. If not able to use Chromebook, what's the best version of edit software for PC?

4. Same as above, how do I connect the PC to the amp etc.?


Thanks in advance.

Hi Rob

Which Spider IV model do you have?

To connect a Spider IV to a computer, you need to have an FBV MkII Express or Shortboard controller pedal. The amp connects to the pedal with a CAT5 cable, then the pedal connects to the computer by USB.  Do not try to connect the amp direct to a computer via CAT5/Ethernet cable. You use Spider Edit software to edit and move custom tones to and from the amp.
