Edited / Stored Tones?


Recommended Posts



I am curious if anyone can say for sure whether or not All Factory OR Edited tones are stored only in the iOS Amplifi App, & then transferred via App to A,B,C,D, by the user?


Or, are ALL tones (Factory or Edited) residing on the Amp itself (and only modified in the App) and then it's up to the user to load your 4 favorites to A,B,C,D for use without

a FBV a foot controller?


Ideally to be to future proof, these tones (factory or edited) would be ALL on the Amp itself (vs App), and saved tones could be called up without the constant need for the App,

(so long as you have a compatible FBV device to switch between the 25 banks & toggle effects). 

And then your 4 favorite tones would be always in A,B,C,D in case you are without an FBV controller or just choose not to use one.


Recently Purchased Used Amplifi 150 / FBV Shortboard MkII - 

Still in the learning curve here -

Appreciate any thoughts or comments from the group or moderators.

Hi Chuck,


I also have the Amplifi 150 and Shortboard Mk II, and from what I can tell, only the 25 banks of 4 tones are stored on the amp, the rest are on the device or your L6 account. I came to this conclusion by switching to a new device and connecting to my amp. The onboard tones were the same and the other tones I loaded from my account. That's the conclusion I came to anyway.


I hope this helps!

In the case of the Line 6 Amplifi system, including the Amplifi 150 and FBV Shortboard MkII, the tones can be stored both on the Amplifi amp itself and within the iOS Amplifi app. Let me explain further:

Factory Tones: The Amplifi amp comes with a set of factory tones that are stored within the amp itself. These tones are accessible directly from the amp without the need for the Amplifi app. You can access and use these factory tones even without a connected iOS device or FBV foot controller.

Edited Tones: When you edit a tone using the Amplifi app on your iOS device, the edited tone is stored within the app. The amp receives the modified tone settings from the app when connected. This means that if you want to access your edited tones, you would need to have the app connected to the amp.

Tone Transfer: You have the option to transfer tones between the app and the amp. So, if you have edited a tone within the app and want to use it without constantly needing the app, you can transfer it to the amp for standalone use. Similarly, you can transfer tones from the amp to the app for further editing or backup purposes.   BenefitWallet Sign In

I have some write this you can read this 
It appears you're asking about the storage and transfer of tones in the context of the iOS Amplifi App and the related hardware. However, I don't have the most current information about the Amplifi product line as of my last knowledge update in September 2021. Therefore, I recommend referring to the latest user manuals, documentation, or official support resources provided by the manufacturer for accurate and up-to-date information.

In general, Amplifi products typically involve a combination of both hardware and app interaction to create and manage tones. Tones may be edited and stored within the app, and then transferred to the hardware unit. Some products may store the tones on the hardware itself, while others might rely more on the app for real-time tone adjustments.

To find the specific information you're looking for, consider the following steps:

Product Manual: Check the official user manual or documentation for your specific Amplifi product. This should provide detailed instructions on how to create, edit, store, and transfer tones.
Official Support Resources: Visit the manufacturer's official website or support portal. They might have FAQs, tutorials, or forums where users discuss their experiences and share information.
Community Forums: Look for user communities or forums related to Amplifi products. Often, other users who have similar experiences can provide insights or answers to questions like yours. TellPopeyes
Contact Support: If you can't find the information you need, consider reaching out to the manufacturer's customer support. They should be able to provide you with accurate and current details.
Remember that features and functionality might vary depending on the specific model and version of the Amplifi product you're using. Always refer to the most up-to-date sources for accurate information.
Thanks for read this
