Uploading question
by LowEnd15 on 2009-11-22 21:59:39.5520

Before I buy the new Spider Valve MkII 1x12 I need to know, can you upload tones from Gear Box and Guitar Port into the MkII via the usb port on the shortboard like you can with the POD XT Live?

                                               Thank you,

No you can't not yet anyway:

That being said, however, my guess is that it will be a future addition or upgrade.

Maybe not with gearbox or other editors but perhaps an editor adapted specifically for the valve/spider series that allows backup and easier PC creation and storage and transferal of tones: (A huge request by many people so you can bet they're looking into it to sell more units since this seems to be a major deciding factor before some will take the plunge.)

Gearbox tones are not compatible with the SVMkII so you will not be able to upload tones to it through an FBV MkII.

You should certainly log a feature request for this though.

Has this answered your question?

I don't think L6 will ever do that for the Spider series unless they decide to go to that as their "prestige" amp.  The Spider series far outsells any requests for this anyways.  Sales would have to take a hit before they re-evalue the line.
