The Amp > MIDI


The MIDI interface allows the Flex3 to be connected to a PC. Line6 provides software to update things in the amp. A quick overview:

Connecting the amp to a pc

There are two options: gameport or USB. Most PCs have USB, so that seems the obvious way to go.
  1. USB: get a USB MIDI cable and use that. The Line6 forums talk about what's good and what not. I am using a gameport so I am not in the position to recommend any of the USB solutions. [UPDATE 22NOV10] However, I have recently bought a cheapo MIDO USB cable online and so far it works fine.
  2. Gameport: get a MIDI cable for that and connect it to the Flex3.
