OVERVIEW

The soul of a pedal, the power of a rack.

The Line 6 M13 Stompbox Modeler has the soul of a multi effect pedal and the power of a rack. It boasts a complete collection of the immortal stompbox effects, stompbox simplicity, rock-solid construction, and much more.

A complete collection of immortal stompbox sounds
Teeming with over 100 immortal distortions, reverbs, delays, and more, the Line 6 M13 pedal offers instant access to an arsenal of history's most celebrated stompbox sounds.

Get 19 celebrated analog and digital delays, 18 distinctive distortions from creamy to crazy, 12 reverbs from modern (particle verb) to vintage (spring reverb) to ancient (cave reverb), 26 vibey filters including wahs and pitch effects, 22 tangy mods including expressive trems and phasers, and 12 compressors and EQs that squash, gate and color.

The Line 6 pedal lets you use up to four models simultaneously, in any order and in any combination. It's like having a gigantic pedal board (without all the tangled cords and overloaded power strips) stuffed into a convenient, easy-to-use package.

Included are all the models from best-selling Line 6 pedals and rack gear DL4 Delay Modeler, DM4 Distortion Modeler, FM4 Filter Modeler, MM4 Modulation Modeler, Verbzilla, Echo Pro and others.

Stompbox simple
The Line 6 M13 Stompbox Modeler is easy to use, just like a classic stompbox. Tweak your tones on the fly using the dedicated knobs. No menus, no saving, no hassles-just turn the knobs and you're done. And your settings remain when you power down!

Four bright LCD screens show parameter names and values, and the built-in chromatic tuner.

Built-in looper
The 28-second looper is always at the ready with dedicated footswitches for Play/Stop, Undo/Redo, Rec/Overdub, Half Speed, Reverse, Play Once, and Pre/Post. You're free to adjust your sounds while looping or overdubbing.

Up to 48 different pedal boards
Different arrangements of models, or pedal board "scenes," can be created for each of your gigs-one for your metal band, one for your punk band, one for your Top 40 gig¦you get the picture. No more tearing up Velcro just to swap one or two pedals. Create and save up to 48 scenes. (Scenes can be backed up to your computer via MIDI in/out.)

Ins and outs
M13 Stompbox Modeler plays well with others. Take advantage of the stereo FX loop and put your other effect pedals in front, behind or even in between M13 Stompbox Modeler's models.

Prepared for any live or studio situation, Line 6 M13 guitar pedal features mono/stereo inputs and outputs (with True Analog bypass or DSP bypass), mono/stereo assignable FX sends and returns, MIDI input and output and two expression pedal inputs.

Total stompbox experience
Built tank-tough with all-metal construction, Line 6 M13 multi effects pedal is designed to survive on-stage abuse. From the chassis to the footswitches, it'll withstand constant stomping.

M13 Stompbox Modeler's treasured stompbox tones, built-in chromatic tuner, 28-second looper and bonehead simplicity will prove totally indispensable (not to mention highly addictive).

I got the Line 6 M13 about 3 months ago and I must say, WOW. The sound quality is insane, best of any pedal I have used(A lot). It is big but who cares? The thing is built like a tank, has a full STEEL outer shell. The footswitches give a nice responsive 'clank' to let you know you have indeed pressed a button. The controlls couldn't be simpler. There are a ton of effects, delays, reverbs are great, distortions, etc. I have not found one song that I cannot mimic the sound of with this beast. I wont be getting rid of this thing until I die. It is that good. REALLY recemend. Ya it is expensive but without a doubt worth it, if you bought everything in a seperate pedal with the same functions and quailty, you would be paying at LEAST twice as much as this thing costs. I love the built in tuner, definately handy. I rarely use the looper but seems to work well and it is very easy to use. OVERALL excellent pedal, buy it and you will fall in love. Thanks for reading hope this helped!!

Overall, this pedal rocks. It's certainly the best money I've ever spent on gear, and I don't plan on giving it up any time soon. The flexibility it offers is virtually unrivaled until you get into something like the TC G-System or rackmount units like the Axe-FX. It allows a guitarist to create a well-adequte number of effects combinations and routings in order to perfect his or her sound and style. This thing is truly a piece of equipment any gearhead should seriously look into.
This pedal is unique in that it gives you just about all of the accessiblility and sounds you could possibly want and/or need in one box--and it does it well. While some models are certainly better than others, they're all useable, and I haven't had any trouble from this unit. In my opinion, the modulation and delay effects are where this pedal shines. I'm a big U2 guy, which carries through in my sound, so the M13 is particularly useful when I want to create a soundscape by stacking a couple of delays and reverbs. Also, the "Octoverb" effect is aweome for producing a wonderful shimmer sound, and through a DigiTech Whammy set to a +1 octave harmony, this thing is just awesome.
As I said, some models are definitely better than others. In my opinion, the delay and modulation effects are where this pedal shines--not only in it's sounds but in the "tweakability" of each effect--I can take a standard Phase 90 model and have the ability to tweak it out the wazoo to the exact sound in my head that I want, anywhere from a slow, pulsing wash to a violent, shaking vibrato-esuqe effect--much more than you're able to do one the standard model, but it retains that special sound which has made pedls like the Phase 90 so popular. I really like the fuzz models, in particular the Fuzz Face, and the Tube Screamer and Driver models. That said, many of the drives aren't my favorite--I tend to supplement this section with other pedals, which is perfect because it leaes me more presets on the M13 to use for delays, verbs, and mods.
I know this has been said time and time again, but I really love the way this unit allows me to have a virtual library of rare, highly-sought-after, and great-sounding classic pedals all at my disposal, for the price and minimal pedalboard space (at least, it's a heck of a lot less than I'd use if I actually had all of these pedals!). Plus, the thing sounds great. It's the perfct way for a hardworking guitarist to achieve most any sound he can dream up. The only thing I'd ask for in a software update is some sort of MIDI sequencer so I can do arpeggiation patterns on my aforementioned DigiTech Whammy, but that's quite a long shot....

    A functional and versatile piece of gear. Being able to use four different effects in any order is a huge advantage over other multi-effects boards. As others have written, the modulations and delays are fantastic. The ODs and distortions are OK, but I've had better luck plugging a pedal for that in.

            I judge a pedal on how it affects my playing, and the m13 has made my guitar playing a lot more creative. If a pedal doesn't inspire me to make music, it's not a good pedal. Lucky for the m13 there are 100+ effects to keep me busy.

            I have used it with half stack 100 watt tube heads, small solid state combos, and with a pod for recording.

            I tried 4 cable method but there was too much tone loss. This works great right into the front end of a tube amp. The band I use it in plays very loud, and I have no issues with the distortions sounding weak or thin. The key is to make sure your tube amp is set loud with a warm clean sound. The amp's and guitar's voicing still come through so if you're playing a strat into a Marshall it's going to sound like that.

            Effects that are my favorite are the barberpole phaser, dimension chorus, AC Flanger, Opto tremolo, Pretty much all the delays. The wah models are also excellent and I no longer use my cry baby =(. Distortions that are usable; Classic Distortion, Tube Drive (best to use if you have a tube amp), Facial Fuzz, Sub Oct Fuz, Tube comp, Boost Comp.

            Comments about Line 6 M13 Stompbox Modeler Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

            I chose the M13 for it's multiple effects and the ability to split the effects. The FX loop splitting was the most important feature and is why I eliminated other products and bought the M13. I can route delays to FX loop while routing other effects to the front of the amp.

            I gave it a CON a 4 star rating because I think they need to release an idiot proof tutorial video. Fortunately I found several on youtube and that helped me figure out how to cable it properly. Search for the 4 cable method on youtube and several vids come up that show how to cable it to the amp so that FX loop is split properly. Distortion goes to the front of the amp and delays go to the FX loop and keep the sound clear and eliminate the mudd.

            I use it with an Egnator Rebel 30 head and mostly only run the time delay effects in FX Loop, as I use the amp to create my tone. Occasionally use the distortion and compressor effects when needing over the top sound. Hope this review is helpful, I think the M13 is a good value.

            GOOD:
            Great sounding effects for the most part. No more tap-dancing. MIDI control of amp channel switching is a definite plus.

            BAD:
            Sorry folks but if you think this doesn't change your tone then get down at ear level with your speaker/cabinet and listen close, then completely pull it out of the chain and go direct and listen close. You can hear the digital conversion. It's a fizzy sound. Recording-wise you may not notice as we all listen in digital nowadays anyway. And maybe you wouldn't hear it with a loud rock band either but on your own or in your sound guy's ears, it WILL change your tone in a slightly unpleasant way. For Line 6 to label this as "true bypass" is almost a marketing gimmick. Yes, with all the pedals off and the global settings in "true bypass" your tone will be unaffected (with the M13 in front of amp only). However, soon as you activate any effect/pedal the unit routes all signal to digital conversion. If you use the four cable method like I do then you can't switch off the true bypass at all and are now 100% digital conversion (due to no true bypass in effects loop of M13).

            Returned.

              I bought this unit about 6 months ago in the hopes that this would be a total solution for controlling midi with stomp box effects. While the effects are decent sounding...(not stomp box quality), the midi has latency (about 1/2 second) which might not seem like much, but switching at different tempos with any kind of challenging part can become a next-to-impossible feat. Had i known this was going to have problems with the midi, i never would have bought this unit.

              I had given up on digital gear after having 5 or so digital processors that I could never get used to. This unit made me curious enough to check out lots of reviews and demo's on the web. I'm not disappointed at all, it is so easy to used and easy to set up from day one. It also contains more detailed setup features for those who want more options, more effects, etc. I don't use a lot, but I suspect I will branch out into a few additional effects as I become more experienced with the unit. I am most impressed with the quality of the sounds; I have never liked digital before, but this unit is the exception. I love the fact that it can be split to run some effects into the front of the amp and others through the effects loop. One of the things I always disliked about digital units is that they must be run into the front of the amp or in the effects loop. I still prefer to overdrive my amp rather than use a pedal for OD or Distortion, and this unit makes this an easy option. For the price of 3 or 4 pedals, I don't see how you can go wrong with this unit.
