***Secret FSR Fender guitars? Yes, they exist, and they're right here

Surf Guitar preset for Line 6 Spider V guitar amp

I got asked to share this one so I went ahead and did it.

I own a Line 6 Spider V 60 guitar amp; it's what I primarily use for all my guitar sounds. The video above is me using my SX Furrian guitar with a preset I made called REAL SURF.

One very cool thing about the Spider V is the Spider V Remote software, which is freely available from line6.com in the Downloads area. You will need this software in order to use this preset I made.

Is there a Windows version of the Spider V Remote software? Yes. Is there also a Mac version? Yes. This means whether you use a PC or a Mac, you can use Spider V Remote.

Do Android and iOS versions exist of this? Yes. It's called Spider Remote and can be found in the Google Play Store or Apple App Store - but I have no idea of whether this preset can be used with that. Supposedly, it should work, but I haven't tested it. I've only tried this on Windows 10 for PC because that's what I have.

Download: REAL SURF.svl6p

(Note: File is hosted on Google Drive and will open a new window/tab so you can download it.)

I directly exported this preset using the Spider V Remote software.

Further info on how Line 6 Spider V presets work (and possible book?)

While the preset has the weird extension .svl6p at the tail, it is in fact just a text file. In Windows, you can literally use Notepad to open it up to see what's in there. I mention this so you know that Spider V presets are not executable. If you try to click and open it, nothing happens since it's just text.

Getting the preset into a Spider V guitar amp requires the Spider V Remote software Load/Save function. You choose to Load, then choose the location of where you downloaded the preset, then load it into the amp. This is similar to loading a document in a word processor.

If you can't get this preset to work, I can write a guide on this. Let me know.
