see description on the site line 6.
The sounds are programmable via bluetoth on ipad or iphone application AMPLIFI by remote.
Simple to use, the settings are reduced but sufficient to obtain good results.
Many sounds are available in the Line 6 community accessible by the application

UTILIZATION

The manual is nonexistent, 8 pages unfortunate, and to update the system must have a little patience.
For example, at the end of the procedure, you need to reset the pedal. I found the method in the abstract of a web page that no longer exists. For he who seeks the ignition must be pressed at the same time on the big volume knob and the Tap button for a while ..!
The FX100 is usable without wifi and no bluetooth.
The pedal remembers your sounds you can save either the pedal or in the cloud or both.
Connected to wifi you can access the database to search for her.
Off wifi bluetooth can change sounds via Amplifi remote on iphone or ipad.

So far so good after using live is IMPOSSIBLE.
Line 6 had the great idea to save on two unfortunate buttons increment banks. To change the bank must simultaneously press the A and B presets to mount or C and D buttons to move down.
To test all sounds either 25 banks (with 4 presets), the change is an obstacle course. 3 out of 4 times you miss the move and you get a pretty zigouigoui look great in concert!
Line 6 will have been able to catch the blow with the application, but again missed because if you can select a sound from the application that does not update the pedals.

SOUND QUALITY

The sounds are good bills
Grades are used with Sg

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it two days ago and he will leave with his dealer.
If using iphone or ipad is via a good idea (provided of course to have one), the pedal is completely unusable, it's just a Pod with 4 buttons for decoration.
Line 6 missed its target, being able this time to a switch (not on HD500X) and skimp on buttons change banks is in my opinion a very big mistake.
I really wanted to love it but now I can not ...
