How to assign effects to FS banks with FBV 3 and 150


Recommended Posts

hi guys,

I have the Spider IV 150 with the MKII for editing and I just got the FBV 3 so I could assign more than 4 presets to banks and channels.  problems is, when I plug the FBV in, the tap light keeps blinking, random FS banks light up and I cant save any presets from my amp to the footswitch.  I can scroll through them all and holding amp buttons, footswitch buttons etc.... but that doesn't help.  do any of you know how to assign settings that are in my amp, to banks on the footswitch?  ive tried selecting function and scrolling to the particular preset, then holding A-D but then when I switch to FS2, its the same ones that are active on my amp.  Am I making sense?

it says online its compatible.  the only thing it cant do is live edits, whatever that is. The strange thing is that random switches light up and when I switch from FS1 to one of the others, the lights don't go out. It was an open box purchase, I wonder if its bad.  I can scroll through everything but can only switch through what is active on my amp.

Yes, it's compatible with the Spider 4, that doesn't mean it can do something that the Spider 4 is not set up to do.  You should be able to use the FBV3 to scroll up and down through the banks (then you have to select which of the 4 amp presets you want in that bank) - that's all the Spider 4 amps allow.

The FS buttons should map to certain FX on the Spider 4, the Wah/Volume pedal works, the tap tempo and tuner should work.  The Shortboard would give you these same functions.

with the mkII or with this one?  im trying to figure out if its defective or im doing it wrong. i emailed Line 6 but havent heard back.
