lit: Significantly higher in pitch (Deviation more
than or equal to 20 Cents Sharp).
If you are uncertain if the guitar is tuned correctly, double check your
work by using the '5th fret method'. For example, fret your low E string
at the 5th fret, then tune your open A string to that note. Now fret
your A string at the 5th fret, and tune your open D string to that note.
Tune your other strings in pairs the same way, with the exception of the
open B string, which should tune to your G string fretted at the 4th fret,
instead of the 5th.

As you do this, Spider IV 30's Channel A LED comes on. This gives the
kind of extra 'dirt' that you'd expect from a Distortion pedal with the
distortion control set low and the output control set high. It boosts your
guitar signal before it reaches the Amp Model, so that you hit the model
harder and get a more distorted sound.
Press and hold TAP as you turn the Reverb knob. This turns the built in
noise gate on and off, which helps to cut down on hiss and noise. When
the Channel A LED comes on, this indicates the Gate is on. By default
the gate is on for all the amp models , except Crunch.
Reset the factory programmed states by holding the Channel A button
down on power up. Warning: This will erase all your custom sounds, so
be sure you want to start fresh before you do it!
When you select an Amp Model, Spider IV automatically sets its tone
controls and effects to match the Amp Model. You can disable the auto-
FX selection (but not the tone control auto-selection) by powering up
with the Channel D button held. The setting remains until you power
up holding the Channel D button again.
