This Is AMAZING!!!!!

I love this pedal! Everything comes in this box! It took me only 5 to 10 minutes to set it up and figure out how to save presets. The instructions were very helpful. Mixing and getting the tone you want is very easy to do. Most of the distortions are fine but I use this mostly for the other time based effects. This just blows me away!

For the price this thing is pure gold. With the expression pedal there is just so much sound to be made. I just wanted a second delay and tuner, but got so so much more.

Favorite pedal

Ok so not every effect of the 100 plus effects are very usable in a typical band setting but the tuner works great, delays and reverbs are great and this eliminated the need for all those pedals you might only use for one song I'm talking flanger phaser trem all that type of stuff. In fact other than the synths, dirt, and pitch stuff which is average everything else sounds great. I also found out a neat little trick with the m5. You don't even need a pedal board you can put it on top of your amp or inside your rack and control it with a tech 21 midi mouse and avoid having to carry a pedal board or spend money on isolated pedal power supplies.

You get all these effects in one box for this price? If you were to buy one of these effects and pay for a decent pedal, you would spend close too this much or more. Great sounding effects, built like a tank,you can't miss. It's true you can only use one effect at a time, just add other pedals to the chain if you need too. I didn't go wrong on this one and either will you.

these sounds have been out forever.each are on separate $ 250 line 6 units since late 90's. of which i never bother to try. i did try the red kidney pod , but it had limited adjustment. have a few pedals this model has in it.all of which actually sound better or as good as what i own , no joke. if you can find 2 useful effects in this unit , it pays for it's self. and you don't have to use them as they were ment ( ie , the tron , i use lightly on over driven tones,,,crazy thickness). the blue comp with treble on , try that with your marshall crunch channel ,w/ a strat , speak hendrix. tape delay is smooth.all reverbs are i said , i own alot of what is on here , but it is what i do not own that makes this so worth the $$$. tho you can not use more than one pedal at a time , there are several that have multi-effect running through them ( like - jet fuzz , reverb w/ new age backing and delays with trails...etc )just played it for 12 hours first 4 days i owned it . lot of entertainment for $130. recorded with it using vocals , tape delay, ,guitar ( blue comp,screamer,)bass w/ vet comp,,,all went perfect the 1st go.

Sweetwater Advice

Daniel Fisher

This is one of those pedals who's price makes you think, "Why would I want to spend $199.99 on a single pedal?" This is because we're used to pedals this small being good at one, maybe two, things. It might also do some other things marginally well. But the Line 6 M5 Stompbox Modeler is an authentic museum of every great effect ever modeled by Line 6. It *IS* the DL4 Delay Modeler, the DM4 Distortion Modeler, the FM4 Filter Modeler, MM4 Modulation Modeler, Echo Park, Verbzilla, LiquaFlange, Space Chorus, Otto Filter, etc., etc., etc... And all the controls have their own knob; and you can read all the parameters at once! Plus, it's stupid easy to make any parameter move any amount, in any direction, just by moving a foot controller. Set a Min and Max for every parameter and when you move your pedal all of the assigned parameters will each move in their own amount and direction. You can then create incredibly complex sound changes with a simple sweep of your pedal. Pro-quality, stereo Ins/Outs means you can use this *anywhere* in you guitar, synth, vocal, or amp chain. External MIDI control allows you to change presets, switch FX on/off, simulate the expression pedal, and even sync the effect's clock with your sequencer or MIDI controller. Plus, it's got a tuner, a noise gate, and a choice of true hardwire bypass or the ability to have the effects trail off. The M5 is simply THE magic ingredient that will take your current sound over the top... that just happens to fit in your gig bag!

Being an owner of the M13, I can attest to the fact that the Line 6 M5 is a great way to get all the same benefits with a smaller footprint. The M5 is a "Swiss Army knife" for your current pedal chain, allowing you to save multiple stompbox settings without reaching down to adjust pedals between songs. If you use and need a lot of effects, this is a great piece to add to your chain!
