OK so i have a Line 6 spider II amp and i have the settings as;
Drive - 5
Bass - 7
Mid - 2
Treble - 7

When i use the insane channel i get an amazing distortion with it, but i bought a Line 6 Uber Metal pedal so i could switch between the distortion & clean (because the pedal has the insane setting on it too).

Problem i'm having is that it sounds nothing like the amp's insane channel.
i have the settings on the pedal pretty much the same as the amp and i duno wether thats the problem or not. I tried messing with the settings on the pedal but i just cant figure it out!
Is there any way i should have my settings on either of them to get the same distortion through the pedal as what i do on the amp?

please help!

thanks!

lol, ive already been banned for posting "" to a joke someone said, hopefully the board has matured during my ban time.

okay if i have to be useful i would say to take the uber metal back and just buy a pedal that allows you to switch between the clean and distortion channel


Or go buy a new amp

yeh but i also wanted the pedal for use outside my house.
eg, college, gigs etc. so i doubt a footswitch would do any good!

Yeh but will the footswitch work on different amps?
everywer i play has its own amps. Will a line 6 footswitch work on other amps?

Just fiddle around with the pedal until you get the tone you need. You might want to try something new for your settings. I've got the Uber Metal too and I'm working with full mids and just a smidge of scoop, you might want to try that too.

Actually no, the intention is that you mature during your ban time. Also, that is not why you were banned, you've been warned 3 times, and then had multiple accounts. Nice you tried to say something useful, but unfortunately for you, it came too late.

In my exerience the Spider hates pedals.
Maybe it's the digital signal chain, but it just seems to be completely unusable with most pedals.
It's like they don't add up, they clash.

dude, uber metal is one of the best metal distort pedals out there. if your getting shit tone, thats not its fault. you need to fiddle with the knobs untill you get what you want. it doesnt necessarily correspond to your amp settings, even though their both called "insane". also, if your amp is on clean, its settings matter as well.

and whoever said that the mt-2 is better than the uber metal needs his head examined...
