Bluguitar Amp1

I got an AMP1 yesterday. At first pass not impressed. This and trebly through a green back. Granted it's an open back pricenton reveb I'm using but it did not sound good. I need to spend sometime with it this weekend but as of right now it's going back. On another note I got my FX8 today so I'll be getting that set up to use.

So you use the blubox but also use a cabinet? I thought the idea was that the blubox replaces the cabinet...
The AMP1 with the FX8 is an amazing combination. Love all the sounds. I do not use the modern channel at all. The cabinet is - as always - a very important part of it all. I have a FATCAB with the original speaker. Great choice if you prefer the vintage sound. I also have a version of this cab with a JENSEN STEALTH 65. A fantastic speaker.

I would recommend using it with MIDI. THE FX8 has great MIDI features. And - by the way - try the BLUBOX. ;-)
Hi,
I'm a new FX8 user running a Bluguitar AMP1, maybe you can help as you're familiar with switching the AMP1 via MIDI with the FX8.
I was hoping to set up four switches on the bottom row of each FX8 preset to change the four channels on the Bluguitar. I've never had a problem doing this with any of the Line 6 products over the years but it seems I can't with the FX8 as there's only two MIDI blocks available per Preset.
I don't want to create scenes as these would also be storing on/off states of FX within the preset? I'm looking to use the FX8 to in full stomp box mode - just on/offs for each effect and separate channel switches for the Bluguitar.
Hope I'm missing something as I would think this should be super simple!

Took me a good while to get used to it coming from full sized valve amps and it does have it's flaws but it's definitley worth working with for a while before getting rid of it. It's been my main rig for a few years now, works great with the Nanocab. I think it's a very cab dependent amp actually as I've gigged it with 4x12s a few times and been very disappointed.

Hi, I used the AMP1 and the FX8 with scenes, top row stomps, bottom row scenes. Midi works perfect that way for me...
