    Line 6 M13 Stompbox Modeler Pedal Product Description

    The Line 6 M13 Stompbox Modeler Pedal: A completely Configurable Multi-Effect Built For The Road

    The M13 Stompbox Modeler is the essential all-in-one pedal board experience. It features a comprehensive collection of stompbox effects, a full-featured looper and inspiring flexibility. Free of complicated menus or setup, M13 Stompbox Modeler channels the soul and ease of a classic stompbox.

    Boasting over 100 distinctive distortions, velvety reverbs, juicy delays and more, M13 Stompbox Modeler gives you total tone control. Use up to four different effects - or four of the same - simultaneously. Stompbox-style knobs deliver on-the-fly tweaking.

    Order the effects any way you want. Create different pedal board effect arrangements, or "scenes," to instantly recall an entire song's stompboxes. Save a scene for your metal band, one for your Top 40 gig... you get the picture. No more tearing up Velcro just to change one or two pedals! Save up to 48 scenes and back them up to your computer using the MIDI in/out.

    The 28-second looper is always at the ready with dedicated footswitches for Play/Stop, Half Speed, Reverse, Undo/Redo and more. Each metal footswitch can withstand constant stomping and rock and roll-style abuse.

    Easy to use, built like a tank and sporting an on-board chromatic tuner, M13 Stompbox Modeler can maximize your pedal board (or even replace it) like no other pedal can.

Many of the effects are from famous Line 6 pedals and rack units including DL4 Delay Modeler, DM4 Distortion Modeler, FM4 Filter Modeler, MM4 Modulation Modeler, Verbzilla and Echo Pro.

    Built like four side-by-side effect units, M13 Stompbox Modeler lets you run any four effects simultaneously with eight others on deck. Mix and match as you please. You have 100% control over effect placement and effect type - arrange them into tried-and-true combinations or get creative and cook up your own original blends.

    Take advantage of Universal Tap Tempo to sync all your time-based effects like mods and delays!

    Up to 48 different effect arrangements, or "scenes," can be created. Create one for your metal band, one for your Top 40 gig... you get the picture. No more tearing up Velcro just to switch out one or two pedals!

    The built-in sound-on-sound looper is easy to use. Dedicated footswitches for Record/Overdub, Play/Stop, Play Once, Undo/Redo, Half Speed, and Reverse make it a breeze to operate. Even novice loop enthusiasts will be making music immediately. (Advanced users will appreciate the extended 28-second looping time and the looper controls that can be triggered via MIDI.)

    M13 Effects List

    19 Delays:

    • Digital Delay - A great workhorse effect, this straight-up digital delay has a transparent and pristine echo-echo-echo-echo...

    • Analog Echo - Analog Echo is inspired by the warm and distorted delays of a Boss DM2 Analog Echo.

    • Analog w/Mod - Inspired by the cherished tone of an Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man, Analog w/ Mod delivers an organic-sounding analog delay with a generous dollop of lush, spatial chorus.

    • Tape Echo - Tape Echo is inspired by the unmistakable depth and sweetness of the Maestro EP-3 Echoplex, which used transistor sound electronics instead of tubes.

    • Tape Echo Dry Thru - Your dry signal with Tape Echo repeats.

    • Multi-Head - Multi-Head delay is inspired by the sound created by the multiple playback heads of the Roland RE-101 Space Echo.

    • Sweep Echo Dry Thru - Your dry signal with Sweep Echo repeats.

    • Reverse - !seltaeB eht dna xirdneH imiJ ekil tsuJ Whatever you play comes out backwards.

    • Tube Echo - Like peanut butter and chocolate, tubes and tape are a great combination. Tube Echo is inspired by a Maestro EP-1.

    • Tube Echo Dry thru - Your dry signal with Tube Echo repeats.

    • Lo Res Delay - Inspired by the unique grunge and noise of early digital delay units. Many of which had only 8-bit resolution.

    • Digital Delay w/Mod - Digital Delay w/ Mod adds a juicy chorus effect to your digital delay.

    • Stereo Delay - The secret to the "Big L.A. Solo" sound of the '80s! Set one side as a fast echo with many repeats, and the other side as a slow delay with few repeats. Voila, you're famous!

    • Ping Pong - Two separate channels of delay. The output of each channel bounces into the other to create the ping pong effect.

    • Dynamic Delay - Dynamic Delay features a ducking control to keep the delays from overwhelming what you're playing. Inspired by a T.C. Electronic 2290 Dynamic Digital Delay.

    • Auto-Volume Delay - Two effects in one! A volume fade-in swell and an echo complete with tape-style wow-and-flutter modulation.

    • Echo Platter - Inspired by a Binson EchoRec, which inspired bands like Pink Floyd. Rather than using tape, the EchoRec used a magnetic platter to record and play back.

    • Echo Platter Dry Thru - Your dry signal with Echo Platter repeats.

    23 Modulations:

    • Opto Tremolo - Opto Trem is inspired by the optical tremolo circuit that was used in the blackface Fender amps like the '64 Deluxe Reverb.

    • Bias Tremolo - Bias Trem is inspired by the 1960 Vox AC-15 Tremolo, which got its pulse by literally varying the bias of the power amp tubes.

    • Phaser - Phaser is inspired by the sound of an MXR Phase 90 but it's got a few extra parameters to bring you there and back again.

    • Dual Phaser - Dual Phaser delivers a big jet sound inspired by a Mu-Tron Bi-Phase.

    • Analog Flange - Inspired by the classic MXR Flanger, which was made classic on Van Halen's "Fair Warning" and "Women and Children First".

    • Jet Flanger - Compared to Analog Flange, Jet Flanger is more dramatic with a different wave shape. Inspired by the signature jet-like sweep of an A/DA Flanger.

    • Analog Chorus - Inspired by the big and warm tones of a Boss CE-1 Chorus Ensemble, the original stompbox chorus.

    • Tri Chorus - Tri Chorus is inspired by the larger-than-life sound of a Song Bird/DyTronics Tri-Stereo Chorus.

    • Ring Modulator - Perfect for those late-night jams when only the weirdest, wildest sounds will do.

    • Barber Pole Phaser - A classic effect from the world of modular synths. Depending on how you set it, this phaser either sounds like it's always going up or always down. Set to stereo you get both!

    • Frequency Shifter - Shift frequencies up or down and set the mix to 100% for an otherworldly tone. Or dial it back to add interesting colors to leads.

    • Script Phase - Just add the "brown" sound and you're emulating one of rock's most celebrated guitar tones! Inspired by an MXR Phase 90. Speed control only, just like the original.

    • AC Flanger - The variety of vibey effects available from AC Flanger are inspired by the classic tones of the MXR Flanger

    • 80A Flanger - The gritty and spacey sweeps of 80A Flanger are inspired by the distinctive sound of the A/DA Flanger.

    • Volume Pedal - Expressive pedal steel-style swells that are ideal for use with a Line 6 EX-1 Expression Pedal.

    • Bass Octaver - This effect gives you a single clean note one octave down. Bassists love it but guitarists (including Jeff Beck) are known to bust it out, too. Inspired by the tone of an EBS OctaBass.

    12 Compressors and EQs:

    • Red Comp - Red Comp evens out your volume and adds plenty of sustain. Ideal for slow leads. Inspired by the MXR Dyna Comp stompbox compressor.

    • Slow Filter - This triggered filter rolls off your high-end with adjustable speeds.

    The Line 6 Story

    Calabasas, California-based Line 6 was founded in 1996 by Marcus Ryle and Michel Doidic. At their previous company, Fast Forward Designs, Marcus and Michel assisted in development of several notable products, including the Alesis ADAT, Quadraverb, and QuadraSynth. Digital Signal Processing was still a relatively new field, and both Marcus and Michel had an interest in applying the principles to the guitar signal chain. As the story goes, any guitar-based development had to be kept hush-hush around the office. Fast Forward Designs only had five lines on its phone system, so any intercom announcements for a "call on line 6" was code for "hide the guitar stuff".

    Line 6 released their first modeling amp, the AxSys 212, in 1996, but are probably best known for their line of Pod guitar and bass modeling processors. Since then, they have developed several lines of modeling amplifiers, effects pedals, Variax guitars and basses, recording Interfaces, MIDI controllers, and Relay digital wireless systems. Many of the amps and effects offer Artist presets, allowing fans to get the same types of tones as their favorite players.

    Virtually all of their products employ some sort of modeling technology, offering a wide range of tonal options and sound shaping both on stage and in the studio.
