Line 6 Announce M9 Stompbox Modeler and Spider MkII
The massive-foreheaded boffins in Line 6 have been busy of late and have announced and shipped two new rock-toys.
First off is the M9 Stompbox Modeler. This is a multi-effect pedal that houses a huge collection of splendid stompbox-type effects. Included are loads of distortions and drives, compressors and reverbs. There are filters, modulators and pitch-shifters. It’s also got a number of effects lifted from Line 6’s DL4 delay modeler and includes a 28-second looper with plenty of control over your loops.
You can run three effects simultaneously and can tweak the order of your effects to you heart’s content. In addition, they’ve tried to keep things simple – all of the effect parameters can be fiddled with via its own dedicated knob without any requirement for messing about with menus.
Throw in true-bypass, MIDI in and out and two inputs for expression pedals and you’ve got a tempting piece of kit. More info at Line 6.
