Pairing midi control to a Line 6 Spider V240 HC with Axe IO interface

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone has information on whether it is possible to connect the FVB port of a Line 6 Spider V240 HC to the midi output of an AXE IO interface so that it can be controlled in tandem.  We are using the amp out feature of the AXE IO to send signal over to a Line 6 Spider V240 HC  and we would like to be able to control presets to change together with a single control unit - which in our case is the FCB 1010 Midi Foot Pedal. Don't really wish to do extensive programming; just want to be able to step through the various numbered preset changes simultaneously in AmpliTube on the AXE IO and send signal via midi from that interface with something like a DIN to RJ45 connector over to the Line 6 Spider and have the corresponding numbered presets on the Line 6 unit change in accordance to those being changed on the AXE IO. Hoping it is just the matter of making a single connection and won't require additional interfaces to create anything as complicated or expensive as an RTP-Midi network.

Is this possible?  New to this.

The short answer is no, it isn't possible. The longer answer is it might be possible, as I have seen some people do some reverse engineering and make a breakout box that converts the signal from a Line 6 FBV controller to MIDI (don't know that I've ever seen someone do it the other way, though). For all intents and purposes, the Spider V amps don't support MIDI in any way.
