Line 6 announced the M5 Stompbox Modeler at the Frankfurt Muskmesse tradeshow this week. This compact pedal includes all the effects found in its larger siblings, the M13 and M9 — over 100 effects taken from the DL4, MM4, FM4, and DM4, plus the Verbzilla! You can use one effect at a time, with the same type of 6-knob parameter editing as is found on the bigger Ms. There are 24 presets, which can be recalled using footswitches or via MIDI, and there’s an input for an optional expression pedal as well as stereo audio ins and outs.
All of that power comes in at a Sweetwater price under $200 — look for the M5 to be available in just a few days.
