A good compromise

By ricou8312, 06/08/2014
A good Swiss Army knife with a multitude of effects more or less useful.


Very easy to use, no need to read the manual as it is simple.
Settings for different effects is very simple with potentiometers found the right sound quickly.
This little box is very ergonomic.


That's why I bought this pedal, I had seen videos on youtube of guys who played U2 and I found it stunning.
Necessarily delays and reverbs are really great.
There are one or two who distos not seem to hurt me too (screamer, heavy ....).
I love the little looper that enough for me and has a good quality.
I plug it into a vox Ac4 a lamp and it sounds very very good!!
It happens with toues my guitars (Strat, and Jazzmaster thinline telecaster).


I recently, but it's been a while since I was eyeing on the m13 or 9.
I looked at the m9 becaufe my amp has no effects loop and also because he does not take place.
I had a lot of effects (analog or digital), saying I sold all my pedals so that the suits me.
A bit expensive new, there are good Bazaars however.
I think it is good value for money considering all that was in it.
The only downside that I found, and it is also on this point that we must be vigilant to buy, it is the quality of the switches.
If your pedal a little experienced, it is likely that the latter is tired.
It's a little disease like line 6 DL4 excellent.
Brief in this case do not worry there is a mod to change by more robust.
The manipulation for the m13 here:

Overpriced and outdated

Multi effects for all digital ways "I have three pedals underfoot, what do I do now?" + + Tuner Looper.
Good full specs are arranged on the site. The M9 also has some hidden features. You can also adds three simultaneous effects with sounds and called with a midi foot multi effects standard ways (Scene).


Using relatively simple but the effects were not a lot of settings in which you will have to spend time. It will also make a choice: In front or in the loop. Not possible to do both. Therefore has less work on amps are very clean and the overdrive drop a lamp, you should choose between whammy, phaser and cry baby or the delays and reverbs ...


Effects are generally satisfactory except sounding distortion podX3 ways. Rather prefer analog pedals. The delays and reverbs are very good, but troubleshoots modulations are back ... The filters are uneven, some are cool others are useless.


I use (well it is in my pedalboard) for one year. I am quite a fan of good sound clean and good overdrive sound so I use the effects that m9 at times for not having to buy a chorus or phaser just an intro I like the Swiss Army knife that side troubleshoots well. I use mostly the tuner, volume (ideal for cleaning a clean Crunch in and send the sauce at once), the boost also boosted the distortion of the amp. I use effects when I need it. Even though I do not always use it, it is reassuring to know it. My pedalboard and suddenly much lighter.
I miss the noise gate that sucks the chain and sound modulations and digital saturation too. Also impossible to directly planted in a sound, it sounds not and it is not made for this. Over time I would do that choice. I would take earlier ZOOM G3. Even have digital troubleshooting much less and pay more zoom and more complete. You should also know that today a pod HD400 is almost the same price and it has all the functions and the M9 and much more (even pedals expressions what is required to enjoy some of the M9 ) Voilou

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

• Two 1/4" expression pedal jacks

• True Analog Bypass or DSP Bypass

28-second looper with dedicated footswitches (Record/Overdub, Play/Stop, Play Once, Undo/Redo, Half Speed, Reverse)

• Built-in chromatic tuner

• Heavy-duty all-metal chassis and footswitches

• Included AC power adapter

• Dimensions: 10.5"W X 2.4"H x 6.5"D - 3lbs.

Can't really say enough about the features of this multi-effects. They have definitely come a LONG way and I can't believe that I've come full circle with owning one again since...'95 or earlier.


It is quite easy to use as a multi effects, most of the other ones have not difficult, but slightly complex ways to tweak settings and configurations etc. So you are generally bound to spend a few hours with it before taking it to the rehearsal studio or the next gig.

Yes you probably should read the manual for certain things but you don't have to read it before playing. You can pretty much plug it in and play, and I read the manual for certain things if I'm looking to do something specific with it that I have in mind.

Yes you have to read the advanced manual for anything beyond what the youtube demos show you etc. So yes it does take some time on your part to get used to how this thing works. MIDI has always been my enemy so I can't comment on that.

I currently use it with the line 6 expression pedal.


Pretty darn good! Lives up to the hype that's been built on the internet from youtube users etc etc. There's tons of video demos that will give a wide range of very usable sounds to crazy whacked out sounds that you'd sparingly use.

There's been lots of debate about the distortion sounds and I want to say that I think it sounds VERY good. No, of course it doesn't sound exactly like a tube amp but this kind of debate will go on for years to come regardless of my opinion but I think....I might just bring the m9 to rehearsals for the next little while instead of my usual pedals, that's how convincing it sounds!

The effects are top notch in my opinion. I love the variety of wahs available and I use all the effects I need to cover almost any song. I have a huge tube distortion pedal that I use to get most of my sound


A really interesting unit to look into. Definitely worth checking out. I was never a multi effects guy, I tried a few in the early 90s and gave up and did the whole single pedals and a board for the next 10 years and now I've come full circle back to a multi effects like the m9. Because this one actually sounds QUITE good and not only that, is very usable live, you can tap things in and out on the fly during a gig and with an expression pedal you can control nearly every parameter of an effect on the fly also. And it sounds great! What more does one need??

Always the mark of numrique

Has any Retailer below. This is the perfect multi-level handling, quality of manufacture.
Only the screen format trsrduit s'avre impractical because not very visible.
Another big point ngatif: the impossibility to save his presets other than via a MIDI connection. I do not know what justifies this choice of connection but it is bad trs.
Overall, it's still a reliable and good quality.


As always with Line 6, the grip is intuitive and fast. No sub-sub menus, everything is very easy accessible. The edition is ultra sounds easy.
The fact that each bank can be ddi effects of the same type or not makes the machine really trs customizable. This is also a big plus: the limitations are few.
You want:
- Three distortions stackss: possible
- 3 reverb: it is possible ...

The manual is clear.

As for the looper, it does not replace a real scne looper / sampler worthy of the name but a riff can work at home.

I put 9 because it is not really far from perfect in terms of rglages!


The effects are they effective, suitable and adequate ralistes?
The effects are trs good, much better than those stamped "COSM" Boss from home.
Section reverb / delay / echo is trs trs good.
For modulations, it's good but not perfect. There's always that little numrique color in the background, but Muls The models are trs correctly.
The modeling pedals gain seemed to me no more blah ... Neither great nor really horrible ...
Small size comparison between a Boss DC3 and version "Dimension Chorus" from Line 6:

Which instruments do you use?
A guitar LTD MH400, a branch pramp AMT SS-20.

What are those you prfrez, you dtest?


I have used for 60 days before returning to the seller. I mainly bought it for use it as "multi-purpose" ddi modulations and although these are good dernires I prfre the sound of my pedals.
In the same style, the TC Electronic NM-1 is much, much worse sound quality level.
I do not buy it, but the report qualitprix seems unbeatable now whereas for those who want a good multi-effect sound quality, size and Reduces trs "open" in the rglages, go for it!
