Custom tone api

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've just bought an amplifi TT as it seems it feets my needs.

First impression:

It's great.

 

But it could have been better with a better application.

Also I'm afraid of the lack of support.

Will it be possible to use this device in 1/2/5 years?

Will the tone cloud will be available?

 

So I was looking for a website to select tones from my laptop and eventually download it.

 

Surprise that's not possible!

 

Well, I've reverse engineered the android application to find the api endpoint.

And now I'm able to list and search in custom tone.

 

Example when searching for genre "rock":

 

https://line6.com/api/rest/v1/customtone/tones?format=json&artist=&song=&genre=rock&midi_id=&compatible=&records=30&token=token&appname=AMPLIFi Remote&appver=2.61.0
{
    "result": {
        "data": {
            "count": null, 
            "tones": [
                {
                    "amp": "1965 Double Verb", 
                    "author": "AParedes", 
                    "band": "Robert Cray", 
                    "comments": " Fender Super Reverbs & Twins\n\nSource: Hal Leonard 25 Top Blues Songs, Guitar World January 1989 ", 
                    "downloads": "64064", 
                    "favorite": "0", 
                    "featured": "0", 
                    "guitarist": "Robert Cray", 
                    "hardware": "AMPLIFi 75", 
                    "id": "701186", 
                    "l6schema": "L6Preset", 
                    "link_id": "", 
                    "link_source": "", 
                    "match": "none", 
                    "midi_id": "2097153", 
                    "name": "Right Next Door", 
                    "pickup": "Humbucker", 
                    "pickup_pos": "Middle-Neck", 
                    "posted": "12/1/14", 
                    "rank": 31.824, 
                    "rating": "3", 
                    "recommended": "", 
                    "revisions_id": 1, 
                    "searched_song_id": "0", 
                    "song": "Right Next Door (Because of Me)", 
                    "status": "public", 
                    "style": "Rock", 
                    "sub_style": "Blues", 
                    "tone_url": "https://line6.com/customtone/tone/deliver/701186", 
                    "tones": [], 
                    "users_feeling": "0", 
                    "users_id": "296001", 
                    "users_rating": ""
                }, 

I'm still improving it and I will publish the results on github soon.

 

But I'm also looking for people to make and host a website to search and view these results.

It's not a bigdeal as all the job will be done by the api (identification, search, download etc...)

This is just information shapping.

Hard to predict how much interest this is going to attract, but I applaud your effort and your willingness to share with the community!

 

It's also hard to predict how long we'll be able to use our Amplifi devices, especially those requiring some type of connectivity, like the tone cloud. As long as the hardware holds out, we should be able to at least use them as amplifiers. 

 

I like Line 6, but they seem to have a habit of running off to chase new shiny objects, and forget about yesterday's  toys. Some products seem to enjoy longer support, while others whither on the vine.

 

IMO, Amplifi hasn't seen much love, and is in a long, slow fuggedaboutit decline. One thing that makes me think that is there is an entirely different product with the same name -- AmpliFI, which is a home wifi component -- that's being sold and I don't see Line 6 out there protecting the name in any way. You'd think they'd be demanding a name change, but they don't seem to notice or care...
