Our resident axeman Rob Chappers, takes a look at the latest stomp technology from Line 6.
The M9 is a programmable, digital modeling recreation of over 100 different effects pedals.

Arranged as three active pedals, each with an A and B slot which gives you access to 6 stomps per bank (with three active at any one time). You can store your setups in any one of 24 pedal board scenes for gig friendly recall.

Rob has a healthy scepticisism of digital - being an analog rock valve purist at heart, but this unit appears to have passed his stringent tests to find a place on his Christmas wishlist.

M9 Features
  • Over 100 stompbox effects
  • Run up to 3 effects simultaneously (with 3 more on deck)
  • Dedicated knobs control each effect parameter
  • Create up to 24 pedal board scenes. (It's like having 24 fully tricked-out pedal boards available at any time!)
  • Universal tap tempo syncs all your time-based effects
  • MIDI in/out
  • 1/4" mono or stereo inputs
  • 1/4" mono or stereo outputs
