—A complete collection of modern and vintage stompbox effects in a powerful and portable package—

CALABASAS, Calif.—September 25, 2009—Line 6, Inc. (line6.com), the industry leader in digital modeling technology for music-creation products, announced today the launch of M9 Stompbox Modeler, a portable and powerful new multi-effect pedal that gives guitarists access to an instant collection of immortal stompbox effects.

“M9 Stompbox Modeler channels the souls of celebrated modern and vintage stompboxes,” remarks Line 6 product manager Mike Murphy. “It’s no-nonsense and easy to use, but it also has great updated features like true bypass, a 28-second looper and up to three simultaneous effects.”

Over 100 sought-after stompbox effects are packed inside of M9 Stompbox Modeler. The collection includes plenty of velvety reverbs, tangy mods, sweeping filters, distinctive distortions, pitch effects, compressors and other essential effects of which many come from the world-famous DL4™ delay modeler and other best-selling Line 6 products.

To accommodate the most subtle or grand changes in tone or dynamics, M9 Stompbox Modeler can run up to three effects simultaneously with up to three more at the ready. Effects can be placed in any order. Up to 24 unique effect arrangements, or “scenes,” can be created.

Inspired by the ease of classic stompboxes, M9 Stompbox Modeler is incredibly simple to use. Each effect parameter can be accessed in real time through dedicated knobs and an easy-to-read LCD window. There’s no digging for menus, no saving, and no hassles.

Complete with a full-featured 28-second looper, M9 Stompbox Modeler allows for extended in-the-moment sound-on-sound looping. Each looper function, including Record/Overdub, Play/Stop, Play Once, Undo/Redo, Half Speed, and Reverse, boasts a dedicated footswitch. Looping has never been easier.

M9 Stompbox Modeler features 1/4" mono and stereo inputs and outputs, MIDI in and out and two expression pedal inputs for added control and functionality. Plus, with its built-in tuner, gig bag-size portability and rugged construction designed to endure, M9 Stompbox Modeler can withstand the rigors of the road and the demands of the working musician.

M9 Stompbox Modeler is now shipping worldwide.
