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.

This is a great little effects unit that you can easily fit onto your pedalboard and still have room for other things. There are a bumch of sounds this thing can make but you honestly wont ever use most of them, other than for fun at home perhaps. So I wouldn't base buying this just to "have" a ton of effects. I run mine in stereo thru 2 amps via ABY box. This allows you to take full advantage of stereo delays, panners etc. I run it into both amp's FX units, keeping my wah and comp in the front. It will make your sound bigger and better doing it this way. All in all, this is a really nice box. I bought it for the reverb, and some delays, and the fact that is has stereo in/outputs. Price is a little high, but so is everything else. Other than that I'm very happy with the Line 6 M9.

I bought the M9 at GC and owned it for a month but had to return because it has some fatal flaws. I play in a cover band and on a typical gig use 15 - 25 patches. This box has 36 places to store patches but they are arranged in 6 groups of 6 banks. In order to change a banks you have to bend over and turn the select knob. Call me crazy, but I don't think you should ever have bend over and turn a knob on a gig. I found I was CONSTANTLY having to turn the knob. Second, there's no way to NAME a patch. You either have to remember that your delay patch for "Streets Have No Name" is stored in Bank 2, 1A or write it down on the set list. I didn't think this would be a problem, but I used it on 3 gigs and it was a BIG problem. I hit the wrong patch many different times. Third, there's no way to copy or duplicate a patch from one bank to the next without backing up the whole box via USB and then restoring only one bank. Finally, the distortion pedals are not great. Kind of buzzy, fizzy and not organic sounding at all. I think with a lot of tweaking you might be able to get these to work, but with all the other problems this box was already off the pedal board for me. On the good side, the delays are great.

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

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 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'!

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

        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:

          If you don't want a mess of patch cables wondering which one is crapping your sound up and a floor full of stompboxes, but don't want to go the rackmount route then this is the unit for you! I've been using my Line M9 since late 2010. My band is a successful regional (SW US) cover band. We play many styles of music from the 60's-Today ranging from Country, Rock, Pop, Dance, Hip Hop, etc. We play basically and and every kind of music for corporate events, festivals, receptions, parties, and clubs as well. I have found the M9 can supply any tone & any effect I need for every song we play. M9's Distortion models are great and have great response that is almost exactly the same as the pedals they are modeled after and the compressor models are awesome as well! The same goes for the effects. All of the parameters and capabilities of the effects are so similar to the real pedals I have no need for any other effects or distortion pedals. Also the fact that the M9 has the capability to select True Bypass mode is one of my favorite things about this unit. Although, I do use my amp distortion channel on occasion, an external wah, and when going between single coil and humbucker mode on my guitar I do have an external clean volume boost that I use to make up for the dB loss, but that is all aside from the M9. In conclusion the M9 has been the best addition to my pedalboard!

          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.

          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
