Spider HD150 & Short Board - adding tones
by John_B2009 on 2009-10-10 12:57:57.8030


I posted this message a few weeks ago, but didn't get a reply. Can I add tones using Line6 Monkey or any other method? If Line 6 Monkey or addingtones are currently not suppported will it be in the near future?  Please help.

Thank you

i don't think you can do that.  as yet there's not been any editors for the spider amps, but there used to be for the vetta and I think the flextone.  hopefully line6 will use gearbox as an editor for the spider IV.

  This information is correct.  All tone editing must be done on the face of the unit, as there is no computer editor for the Spider series on your computer at this time.

Re: Spider III HD150 & Short Board - Adding Tones and Updating Amp?

According to the following chart the FBV Shortboard Mark II will work with the Spider HD150 amp. So, this will allow me to add tones using the FBV Software and the USB port? I made a mistake last time by purchasing the FBV Shortboard and want to make sure before it will work before I make a purchase tomorrow.

Manual currently states Spider IV HD150 and NOT the Spider III HD150.



Take full advantage of FBV Shortboard MkII with the free and downloadable FBV Control software. The application shows you a graphical representation of your FBV Shortboard MkII and lets you customize the midi commands you send via USB.

Assign each FBV control a MIDI CC, a bank change, a program change or even transport commands to drive many popular audio applications including ProTools®, Propellerhead Reason® and Record, and more!

Create and save endless variations - a few for gigs, a few for the studio - and easily add them to your FBV Shortboard MkII via USB.


USB connectivity enables FBV Shortboard MkII to receive software and firmware updates.
