OVERVIEW

Modern and classic stompbox models in a powerful and portable package.

The Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler has enough stunning guitar pedal sounds to spark the gear lust in every guitarist-Swirling phasers, tangy choruses, syrupy sweet reverbs, and more. The comprehensive list of available M9 models features all the effects from best-selling Line 6 pedals. Access all the famous sounds from DL4 Delay Modeler, DM4 Distortion Modeler, FM4 Filter Modeler, MM4 Modulation Modeler, Verbzilla, Echo Pro, and more.

M9 Stompbox Modeler is set up like three FX units. Each effects unit can have two stomps at the ready, and any three effects can play simultaneously. Use one effect at a time, arrange effects in tried-and-true combinations, or create your own original blends.

Use the Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler to create 6 different stompbox arrangements, or pedal board "scenes"-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 switch out one or two pedals. Plus, the Line 6 M9 pedal features MIDI in/out, for you to back up your scenes to your computer or control the unit with a MIDI controller.

Inspired by the simplicity of classic stompboxes, the Line 6 M9 guitar effects pedal is incredibly easy to use. Tweak your tones on the fly using the dedicated knobs and easy-to-read LCD window. Just turn the knobs and you're done-no menus, no saving, no hassles-and your tweaks remain, even after you power down.

Complete with a full-featured, 28-second looper, Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler allows for extended in-the-moment looping. It has all the necessary looper controls with dedicated footswitches to make looping easy: Record, Record/Overdub, Play/Stop, Play Once, Undo/Redo, Half Speed and Reverse (The looper can be used simultaneously with the three FX Units.).

The Line 6 M9 multi effect pedal features plenty of ins and outs. 1/4 in. mono/stereo inputs and outputs (with True Analog Bypass or DSP Bypass) let you put M9 Stompbox Modeler before, after, or between your other pedals. Connect expression pedals to the two 1/4 in. expression pedal jacks to morph smoothly between tones. MIDI in/out, which is perfect for backing up your "scenes", also makes the Line 6 effects pedal compatible with many popular MIDI control systems.

The Line 6 M9 guitar pedal is built tank-tough with all-metal construction. From the chassis to the footswitches, M9 withstands constant stomping. Together with its built-in chromatic tuner, the Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler's generations of sonic treasures and brain-dead-simple design will prove indispensable-not to mention highly addictive.

Check the Line 6 website for software updates that increase the power of your M9 Stompbox Modeler

I bought this when the price was at 350 bucks. Great deal! Still good at 400, so I was fortunate to get it when I did. The first thing I tried was to use it in the effects loop of my amp, so I could use the amp's overdrive and only use the modulation and delay effects of the M9. It sounded good, however, the compressors and distortions sound awful after the preamp. No big deal, I was using my amp's distortion and my own Vox wah and overdrive pedal before the amp. When I tried hooking the M9 in front of the amp, not using the loop, I was pleasantly surprised. I run my Vox wah first, then this M9, and that's it! I do run a BBE in the loop, but it can sit on top of the amp since I never turn it off. How quick and easy to set up and what great sounds I'm getting! People complain about the distortions on this unit. There are alot of different flavors to choose from, and I found that all I need is the "classic distortion", modeled after the Pro Co Rat. I use it with the drive on about 25 percent for most rhythm playing and about 90 percent for long sustaining solos and other lead work. When off, I get my amp's natural clean sound. This works with both my Fender twin and my Marshall half stack. Just set the amp as clean as possible, get the tone you like, then set up your distortion tone on this box. The mod effects are good, not great. I mainly use the analog chorus setting for some things. Sometimes I use the flanger, not the best flanging I've heard, but useable. The reverbs are really cool, however for live shows, I use the reverb in my amp. The filter effects are mainly wierd, but I love the harmonizer! Set it for D minor and up a 3rd, and wail away on White Room! LOL! Last but not least, the delays are fantastic! I love the tap tempo, which can be set before you turn on the delay! This is sweet because you can set your delay time before your big solo, then kick it in when needed. I set some for quarter note delays and some for dotted eighth note delay, which is my favorite. The looper is alot of fun and I have used it to show off at gigs. It is also a great timing trainer and practice tool. Another use for the looper is to record a basic rhythm, have your drummer put a beat to it, put down your guitar and walk around the room to hear what your rig sounds like. I go to the soundman and make sure my EQ is good coming out of the PA. Great product! I would buy another one if I had to.

I have been playing guitar for about 40 years. At this point in my life, I play about 4 gigs per year. Being a gear junkie is another of my problems. In the multi effects arena, I own the M9, the Nova System, Boss ME-80, The Zoom G5, and the Digitech RP1000. The all have there pros and cons. I bought the M9 in an attempt to eliminate my pedal board which has a bunch of individual stomp boxes.
The first thing that anyone who is considering the M9 should understand is that you can only get three effects on at the same time. If you are a player who has compression, delay, reverb, and distortion all at the same time, this pedal is not for you. Stop reading now and look for a different unit. Remember, only three effects can run at the same time.The M9 works with what they call "scenes" which is the same as what other units call a "patch." A scene is just a pre defined set of six stop boxes that you program yourself. Programming is easy. The problem is that you cannot give your patch or scene a name. The patches have names like A1, A2, A3, B1, B2,B3 etc. If you are a musician who uses a lot of patches for a set, it can be hard to remember where they are when playing live. For example, if you have created patches for your Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, and Black Sabbath sounds, how are you supposed to remember the Clapton tone was stored in B3? Other multi effects units let you name the patch Eric Clapton so you can just scroll to it and engage.Another short coming is that the foot switches which turn the effects on and off are only marked A1,A2,A3, and B1,B2,B3. Now you have to memorize which switch was the delay and which was the overdrive etc. This problem does not exist on some of the other units. The M9 is easy to set up and program. The sounds are not as good as boutique stomp boxes, but they are more than acceptable. If you run more than three effects at a time this is not for you. If you need many patches, (which I don't) look elsewhere.

      Comments about Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

      I take my gear purchases very seriously, and I have high expectation for acquisitions, which are usually preceeded by extensive research, review reading, cost analysis, etc. Although I am thankful to have enough tools for any professional necessities, I have a general philosophy about having the best quality I can afford, taking care of what I have, using tools as deeply as possible, not having excessive amounts of things that are not needed or especially go unused, and getting products that allow me to continue using with versatility as I grow in my practice and occupation. Regarding the M9, I can say that I have been using one since 2010 and have integrated it solidly into concerts, studio recordings, and other myriad projects of these past years. I just acquired a second M9, for expanded uses and to be certain that I will be able to securely continue solid use. If you are considering this product, I would guess that you are familiar with how much this unit is capable of. I can attest that this box is excellent. For its small size, it carries 100 pedals worth of effects, of which can be stored in multiple settings, modified in real time with tap tempo, and with a bit of utilitarian looping. Comparing this to three boutique pedals, for example, one would pay likely twice as much or more, with 97 less options, and likely not have access to saved settings for sets, track recordings, etc, nor be able to use tap tempo which syncs to all effects in chain, and a pedal for changing effect parameters (not included). I cannot say enough good things about this pedal, but hopefully this review will help others looking for experienced reviews to help them decide if this is worthy of purchase. Also, the sound quality is excellent. the list of professional users should serve as confirmation. this box is perfect for my uses and needs.

      Comments about Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

      I had tried the large version of this machine and found that one easy to program and use (though rather expensive). This model was a restock, and appeared in perfect condition. However, it was much more difficult to program than its big brother, and would sometimes refuse to shut off (or at least it continued echoing even after the delay was shut off). This is obviously unacceptable for live work, but again may have been a defect somewhere in this particular unit, and not a characteristic of the model in general. The quality of the effects is subjective, but I found none that were superior to individual floor units. I am going back to a conventional pedalboard setup, having tried a few of these from Line 6, Zoom, and Boss. Works for some people, not for me, alas.

        Comments about Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

        I used the Line 6 DL4 for about 5 years with no problem at all, although at times due to the unit having only 3 presets i would have to bend over to add modulation to a preset if i wanted it for a song, so i figured i'd give the M9 a shot sense it had more presets... well i don't want to ramble on so in short i got what i wanted and more, also the chorus efx are great, as are the other modulation efx and you can set them for tap tempo or a set rate (same goes for delays of course), your choice, never seen this for a modulation type efx before, very cool... the reverbs are very good, as are some of the overdrives/dist./fuzz mods. Only thing i didn't care for was the size of the supplied power pac (it's huge), so i order the Godlyke PA-9S-US Power-All 2000mA and the L6 jumper cable(reverse-polarity).
        Hope this helped, happy pickin'!

          Easy to use. Line A and B with numbers 1-3 per line. Thats 6 effects you can switch through on one board with 3 on at a time. 6 set lists equals a total of 36 different pedals on this one box. The pedals are grouped in color/name co-ordinated catagories. Delays and reverbs really shine, the other groups are amazing, but aren't AS detailed. Simply, this board streamlines without sacrificing.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

            So I bought this pedal to use specifically for delay and reverbs. I use one or two modulation effects, and some of the filters for fun. and for the most part there really good.
            I went from having a nova delay to the m9. I only switched because the band I'm in I needed more options and this was the affordable option. I thought I would lose great sounding delays that the nova could product. Well I was wrong. The pedals the m9 tries to emulate are fairly accurate to the real thing. I know there not perfect, but going into this switch a sceptic of what it could do I'm thrilled with the turn out. I mainly use the analog delay w/mod and it sounds really good. I have a few different reverbs set and they all sound great.
            I think line 6 did great on the delay, reverb, filter, and even modulation, But I can't stand the distortion on it. I know I haven't played with the distortion enough, but I know many people that either play the m9 or m13 and non of them are happy with the distortion that this produces. So in my opinion If you go for this buy a good overdrive, distortion, fuzz whatever your flavour is to throw in along side it. or else from what i've experienced you'll have a very non-responsive distortion that really doesn't colour your tone the way it should. I think you get my point I find the distortions BAD and the rest GOOD.

            well theres my 2 cents.

            I haven't had this pedal long enough to comment on its durability.

            Comments about Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

            All in all, a very imprisoned version of the m13. Might as well spend the extra $100 and get the m13. They're trying to fit too much here into a pedal that needs twice as many footswitches for the features. If you don't want the footprint of the m13, get the m5. It's got pretty much everything the m9 has and is not only easier to use, but no bigger than a stompbox.

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

            This was my first effects pedal. This is a good pedal to start out and experiement with, but I don't plan on having this in the long run. Effects are pretty good, but compared to single effects pedals, this sounds more digitized but its subtle. The looper is fun to mess around with.
            I like the "scenes" concept, which allows you to have 6 effects in one scene, and have 6 scenes. I wish you could use more than 3 effects in one scene.
            Some of the footswitches get stuck, but after a couple of clicks they return normal. Sometime there's no sound coming out of it, I just enter tuner mode and get out and everything returns to normal
            If you're into the multi-effects stuff, save up $100 more to get the m13. IMO you should revolve your pedal board around this and just get singles pedals. You'll get better quality in sound and notice the difference

            Lots of boutique pedals in a box

            Comments about Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler Guitar Multi Effects Pedal:

            Here is the scoop on this jewel. I own two limited editon tube fender amps and lots of botique pedals from makers like Wren & Cuff, Black Arts & Lovepedal etc and while the botique pedals are great, I compared them directly to the M9 and began to wonder why I spent all that money on those pedals. Sure they look cool and there is alot of hype surrounding them and their sound but seriously the M9 really sounds smoother and doesn't have that mushy bassy sound in the overdrive & distortion sounds. I also compared the spring reverb sounds to my limited edition Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb & it really had the same sound and character. Now if I only had a time machine to just buy this and the amp and not all those cool looking pedals that are all back in their boxes now, ha.

            Don't forget you can combine overdrive's and distortion's to create new distortions sounds. Add in some delay or whatever and rock out. If you need more than 3 effects at a time then get the M13. Also the fuzz preset called "Fuzz Pi" sounds just like my Catlinbread Merkin Fuzz pedal.
            Lots of features and tweaking ability, its like having a hundred pedals & you can use 3 at once.
            Feels solid to me with its metal case and good quality sounds.
            Great value becuase it truly has the sound.
