adjusting gain with expression pedal?

Recommended Posts

Ok all you dial tweekers and deep edit divers..I have a Q for ya.

 

So i'm currently run'n the 240hc with a cab and the FBV3 and can honestly say i'm pretty impressed!

I turned to this rig after running the Line6 Vetta ii HD many years ago (was a working musician for many years) but sadly had to part ways with it some time ago.

One of the many many things I loved about that head was "dual modeling" running distortion through one side of the cab while running clean through the other (sweet baby jesus I miss that)

 

So my Q is that however I do understand that you can manipulate delays/reverbs through the S5's exp pedal...is there a way I can control the modded amp its'elf? ie go from lets say heel position at minimal gain to toe at 50%

I don't have an expression pedal to check, but the FAQ talks about a tweak-able parameter being assigned to the external expression pedal.  

 

https://line6.com/support/page/kb/amplifiers/spider-v/spider-v-interaction-with-fbv-ext-pedals-r849/

 

Looking through the Spider Remote application thought, I don't see that this parameter can be assigned.   That stated, I have the lower end FBV MKII express, so the app may only allow me to modify based on WAH and VOLUME because that is what is detected as supported by my controller.

 

I'll keep an eye out for a used FBV 3 to try this sometime.

In Spider Remote, double tap an effect or amp parameter to assign it to FBV3's expression pedal.
