New User: How do I switch banks?

Recommended Posts

I see a topic involving a footswitch, I do have the android remote software installed on my phone. Is there any way to change banks with just the amp? it's the 150.

Hi rkurbis,

 

I have the 150 as well and unfortunately there isn't a way to switch banks without using either the app or an FBV control pedal. It is a bit of a shame. I have a FBV Shortboard MKII to use with my amp when performing and practicing, however I have used the app before too when I haven't had the pedal. I have found the app to be less reliable, especially in a venue with lots of wireless data transfer like the performing arts centre.

 

On another note, I have read some articles relating to people custom-building pedals for the spider and Amplifi to change banks or toggle effects. They experimented with which ethernet wires receive what voltages when each button is pressed and custom-build a circuit that does what they want. If you are tech savvy and want a project, I am sure that someone has released the logic diagrams for the Shortboard pedals. Otherwise, it might be better to buy a Shortboard pedal.

 

I hope this is at least somewhat helpful!

I know that 4 presets isn't enough, but I learned that saving your 4 favorite presets in bank 1 on the Amplifi, will make these the defaults that load each time you turn your amp on.  That way, you don't need to switch banks.  Just use your favorite 4 presets and maybe tweak them when necessary.  You can switch between them on the top of the amp, without any pedals or phone, etc.  Hope this helps.
