How to backup and restore Line 6 Spider V amp presets

image

This is easy once you know how it's done.

I received an email asking how to do this, and rather than put it all in a reply I decided to put together a quick article about it.

If you own a Line 6 Spider V guitar amplifier, be it a V 30, V 60, V 120, V 240 or V 240HC, the easiest way to back up all your custom presets is to use the Spider V Remote software.

The software is free, but unfortunately does not contain a help file telling you how to do anything. There is probably online documentation for this on the Line 6 web site, but I couldn't find it.

Once you see how this is done, you'll say to yourself, "Oh, okay that was actually pretty easy." Yes, it is once you're actually told what to do.

Why back up?

The main reason to back up your presets is for whenever you perform a Spider V system update. Periodically, Line 6 will release an amplifier software update that adds in new features and/or applies fixes. It is a smart idea to back up your presets before applying any updates so you don't lose anything.
