FBV 3 and LED - MissLEDing

Recommended Posts

I purchased the FBV 3 for use with the Line 6 Amplifi series.  I have the Amplifi TT and added the FBV 3 to added foot control functionality.  The device works GREAT with the exception of the use of the LED capabilities.  The description by Line 6 is misleading in that the LED color functionality only works with a couple of their devices. Line 6 notes this in the ultra small print "Assignable color LEDs available for use with Firehawk 1500 & Spider V only".  I am not impressed.  Does anyone have insight into when this makes it's way to the top of the list?

 

 

Cheers!

You are not the only disappointed in the missing color coded rings when pairing FBV3 with Amplifi. There is a post for this on the Line 6 Idea scale, a place where end users can submit ideas or feature requests for Line 6 products. Consider up-voting this idea, Line 6 product managers do pay attention to idea scale.

Thnx for the response.... I would recommend taking the high road and stating the LED functionality clearly in you marketing.  Cheers!

I have to say, I agree with you. I'm using it with a Spider IV and am more than a bit annoyed that the LED feature (which is heavily featured in the marketing of the product) doesn't work. I'm even more annoyed that I can't update the amp firmware via the pedal! This stuff needs to be much clearer in the marketing blurb.

There's a whole bunch of their stuff that doesn't work as they first claim it does.

I'm beginning to think that no one even gives this stuff a try first before they sell it.

 

You can't up-date thru their pods either ?   Why the Heck not ?  Says 'Ya can in plain English...........

I think everything is perfectly clear......it's called "Shoddy Products".

Even though the color's do not work on the FBV 3 when using the Amplifi line, can you at least (using the iOS app for Amplifi) put all OD's on Switch1, all Mod's on Switch 2, Delay on Switch 3 (so on and so forth) for each patch so there is at least some consistency even with the lack of color coordination?
