  1. As the title says, this M5 has the Right (mono) channel which is overly loud and has a lot of bad gain. Almost as if some distortion effect is always on. Interestingly, if I plug inputs and outputs into both channels, then it quiets down and behave as I expect. I've tried a factory reset with no change. I'm handy with electronics, but before I dig out my multimeter and solding iron, I thought I'd ask. Is there some setting that is causing this (that sticks even with a factory reset)?
  2. Hi guys, newbie here. This morning I went to set it up and I only get sound while the pedal is in bypass mode. If I engage an effect then I get silence. Has anyone else had this issue? How solve this problem? Help 58356942212__BF6A224D-D56D-449C-8961-59B39F83BFE5.MOV
  3. Total Looper Recording Time: 30 seconds (60 seconds with half-speed enabled) Ins and Outs: Stereo Input through two 1/4" mono inputs (L and R) and stereo output through two 1/4" mono outputs (L and R). All inputs and outputs are unbalanced instrument level. Additionally, two 1/4" jacks for 2 expression pedals Expression Pedal: Use Line 6 EX-1 or an expression pedal with a passive 10K ohm mono linear taper pot, using a standard 1/4 inch mono instrument cable Power Adapter: included Line 6 PX-2 only (Specs: 9V, 2000mA, center tip positive, 2.5mm diameter). No battery power option available Product Dimensions: 10.5" (L) x 7" (W) x 3" (H) Weight: 2.3 lbs Q: How many total effects are there in the M9?A: With the latest 2.01 Firmware update, there are 109 total effects available on the M9. Q: How many of each type of effect is there on the M9? A: Distortions/Comps/EQ/Volume: 30 Modulations: 22 Filter/Pitch: 26 Delays: 19 Reverbs: 12 Q: How do I register my M9? A: You can register any Line 6 product to your account here: Registration. For more detailed registration help, please see the Product Registration F.A.Q. . Q: What is the warranty on the M9? A: Twelve months from the date of purchase. Any Authorized Line 6 Service Center you visit will need you to provide a copy of the purchase receipt to validate date for warranty processing. Please be sure to have those materials ready, should you need to get your unit serviced under warranty. Troubleshooting & Service Q: How do I perform a Factory Reset on the M9? A: You can perform a factory reset by entering the Setup screen (press both B1 and B2 at once) and navigating to the Screen with the MIDI, GATE, Display header and turning the Model Select knob until the corresponding parameter displays RST FACT? You can then press down on the TAP footswitch then the Model Select Knob together twice to reset the unit. You can also re-install the flash memory to return the M9 to factory settings. Q: What is a "Scene"? A: A "scene" is a pedal board arrangement on your Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler with 6 available effects, up to 3 at once. Q: How many scenes are there and how do I access them? A: With the 2.01 update, you can create and save up to 6 different scenes in one Scene Folder. With 4 Scene Folders, you get 24 total scenes on the M9! Press 3A and the TAP button at the same time to access the scenes and turn the MODEL SELECT knob to access the additional folders. Q: Can I backup my scenes to my computer?A: You can backup your scenes via MIDI. Check out the M9/M13 Scene Backup document. Q: Which expression pedals can I use with the M9? A: We recommend using the Line 6 EX-1 expression pedal. You can also use any other expression pedal containing a 10k Ohm Potentiometer. Expression pedals allow you to change stompbox controls using your feet so you can adjust the sound while you play. On the fly, you can modify the delay time and feedback, speed of your tremolo, or sweep the pitch on the Pitch Bender effect. Connect an expression pedal to your M5 Stompbox modeler. Start with the pedal in the toe position. Once you have your effect parameters settings as desired rock the expression pedal to its heel position. Now set your parameters to your desired settings. As you move your expression pedal from heel to toe, you'll see all of the adjusted parameters move between these settings. All parameters affected by an expression pedal will show a pixel notch at the top indicating a parameter's setting for the toe position of the pedal. You'll also see a notch at the bottom that indicates a parameter's settingwith the expression pedal in the heel position. Additionally, if you don't want a parameter adjusted by the expression pedal, set the parameter's knob to where you want it with the heel down, then do the same with the heel up.
  4. Hey Guys! I've got a M5 pedal, that was dying slowly, as I thought. It was stuck in one preset, was rebooting constantly and no sound produced. I've tried to update the firmware, but it failed. Then I've managed to reset it to factory settings and it worked (actually I did it twice). Pedal does produce sound now, but it behaves not quite like it was before. It doesn't activate a preset until I tap both buttons. So I can scroll through the list of presets, but it would sound like the last preset I've edited. Then I tap both buttons and the selected preset activates. Before the reset it activated selected preset instantly. I've bought my pedal from a person, so I don't know how it should work with factory defaults. Maybe I could set it up to activate presets while scrolling through them? P.S. Also the expression pedal doesn't work with it anymore. Little dots appear, but no changes are made by the exp-pedal. But I'm not sure if it's working by itself.
  5. M5/M9/M13 BACKUP INSTRUCTIONS *** This procedure is also explained in the M9 Advanced User's Guide and M13 Advanced User's Guide REQUIRED: A MIDI sequencer app such as Cubase or a sysex app -- if you don't have a sysex app installed, do a Google search for MIDI Ox (Windows) or Sysex Librarian (Mac) then download one or the other and install it. And ONE of the following: A MIDI interface that connects to your computer via USB (download the current Driver for it if you don't have it installed) & 2 MIDI cables OR A MIDI - USB interface such as the M-Audio Uno that comes with attached MIDI cables. You may need to download & install the latest driver from the manufacturer for this device. When your MIDI interface, Driver and sysex app are ready to go, follow PROCEDURE instructions below. Windows: Saving Scenes & Folders: 1. Run MIDI OX. You can do so from Start > Program Files > MIDI OX. 2. Set "Pass Sysex" & "Start Display" to On by clicking on the the 'REC' & 'SYX' boxes at the bottom right of the main window so it is highlighted blue. 3. Now go to View > Sysex. A Sysex View and Scratchpad window will open. 4. Go to the Sysex menu & select "Receive Manual Dump." When selected, you will see a window appear waiting on info from the M9/M13. 5. In Setup Menu of M9 (Press the 1B and 2B buttons at once, then press the MODEL SELECT knob 3 times until the display shows MIDI in the top left) or the M13 (hold the 'Looper Controls' button), select 'Dump All' to backup all your scenes, 'Dump Folder' to backup the current folder, or 'Dump Edit' to backup the one scene you have currently selected. Press the TAP button and the 'MODEL SELECT' knob at the same time on the M9 or just press the 'MODEL SELECT' knob on the M13 to begin the dump. Click 'Done' in MIDI OX when complete. 6. Under the 'Display Window' of MIDI OX, click 'Save As' and save it as a Sysex file type. Loading Scenes & Folders: 1. Run MIDI OX 2. Go to View > Sysex. A Sysex View and Scratchpad window will open. 3. Under the 'Command Window' menu, select 'Load File' and select the Sysex scene or folder file that is saved on your computer. If you are attempting to load an individual scene, it will be recalled to your current scene location, so change to the scene location on the M9/M13 you would like to overwrite. 4. Again, go to the 'Command Window' menu & select 'Send/Rec Sysex.' The display on the M9 (FX Unit 4 on the M13) will flash 'Receiving MIDI - Standby.' Once complete, your scene(s)/folder are now loaded. You do not have to set anything on the M9/M13, it will simply load the individual scene to the current location or load all the scenes in one shot once it receives the file. If you are loading a folder, it will load to the same folder location that it originated from. So, if you saved Folder 3 from the M9/M13, it will load back into the Folder 3 location on the hardware regardless of which Folder you may be looking into. **Note - Using 'Send Sysex' does not work. MIDI OX screen will read 'Sysex Receive' although it is sending to the M9/M13. MAC USERS: Saving Scenes & Folders: 1. Open Sysex Librarian. 2. You should already see your MIDI interface (or 'USB Uno MIDI Interface') listed in the dropdown menu at the top. If not you will need to download & install the latest drivers available from the manufacturer. 3. Click the 'Record Many' button. Use this even when backing up an individual scene. A window will appear showing it is awaiting info from the M9/M13. 4. On the M9/M13 select either 'Dump All' (all scenes), 'Dump Folder' (current folder), or 'Dump Edit' (current scene). Press the TAP button and the 'MODEL SELECT' knob at the same time on the M9 or just press the 'MODEL SELECT' knob on the M13 to begin the dump. 5. Once complete, you can rename 'untitiled.syx' in Sysex Librarian by clicking the name once it is highlighted. Loading Scenes & Folders: 1. Select the Sysex file you wish to load. 2. Click 'Play'. You will see 'Receiving MIDI - Standby' in the display on the M9 (FX Unit 4 on the M13). Your scene(s)/folder is now loaded. Again, if you are loading an individual scene, it will load to the current location you are in, so select the scene you wish to overwrite BEFORE loading the backup file. If you are loading a folder, it will load to the same folder location that it originated from. So, if you saved Folder 3 from the M9/M13, it will load back into the Folder 3 location on the hardware regardless of which Folder you may be looking into. M5 Backup Procedure: With a MIDI interface and a sysex application, you can back up all your M5 presets to your computer. This makes it easy to build a custom preset library, or exchange presets with others. To backup your presets, or to dump the current preset, follow these steps: 1. Turn bottom left PARAMETER KNOB to set your MIDI Channel (Ch. 1-16 or Omni - the default is Ch. 1). 2. Turn the Model Select knob to select DUMP ALL? (to back up all 24 presets) or DUMP PRE? (to back up your current preset). NOTE: There is an error in the M5 Pilot Guide.pdf regarding the following step in the SysEx dump procedures. Please refer to the information here for correct behavior: 3. With your computer set up to record sysex, press and hold ON/OFF while you press down on the MODEL SELECT knob. Repeat this to confirm or press TAP to exit out, if you choose. 4. The M5 will immediately transmit the sysex file to your computer, creating a backup of your Scenes that you can store and recall at any time. To load presets back into your M5, simply transmit the sysex file from your computer into the M5 via MIDI. This will immediately load the data into the M5's memory.
  6. My M5 has been acting a bit strange lately. I have an expression pedal connected to it, but sometimes the M5 doesn't register the full sweep. A good example would be the Whammy preset: I configured the expression pedal to go from 0.0 to +12.0. However, sometimes when I put it toe down, it goes to +11.8 or something. I'm able to fix the issue by disconnecting the power and restarting the M5 a couple of times, after which it stays stable and always registers the full sweep, until I power it up again the next time. Anyone had a similar experience? How did you fix it? It's rather annoying I sometimes have to connect and disconnect the power for up to ten times before it works correctly. Thanks in advance, Wout
  7. Is there any reason why I couldn’t connect (2) M5 stompboxes in-line to allow for different effect combos (using stereo outputs/inputs)? Thank you!! Jamie
  8. Hello! I am trying to get an expression pedal to work on my m5 by going through a midi controller. Not sure where i'm going wrong. I am using an ex-1 > decibel 11/switch dr. (cc#1) > m5 via midi. I can change presets with no problem but can't get the expression pedal to work. Any ideas out there. Your ideas and time are greatly appreciated!!
  9. Anyone get the M5 to bypass through MIDI? I’m trying to send CC messages on patches I don’t need it and it’s not working. Any help would be appreciated.
  10. Hello! I am wondering if it is possible to create a blank preset with no effects or a true bypass without having to double tape my preset button when in screen mode. I am using midi to switch channels on my 5150 iii. I would just like a quick way to switch to my distortion channel and have no effects on it.
  11. Hi folks, Got a question reguarding foot controllers. I'm on a but of a budget and I was wondering if the bugera fsb106a would be compatible with my M5? If not what are my other options? Looking to keep the price tag under £100 Thanks in Advance Denn
  12. So I've seen these other stompbox/ midi brand boards and there are companies that make magnetic labels you can put on those boards to know what effect you have on which pedal. I searched and searched for something similar for the m13 stompbox but nothing. So I spent a few hour rigging up my own labels. I used magnetic printer paper. Got pictures of regular guitar pedals and edited them down to a 5/4 ratio. And printed them out. I'll post a picture of the finished product tomorrow
  13. Hi, I got an M5 Stompbox Modeler for the pas 2 years and i really like it. Problem is, since the past few months, i have a problem. If the M5 is on and the effect (lets take heavy distortion for this example) is activated (which means the red light on the on/off is there) the sound is completely fine. BUT if i just press on the ON/OFF button, i'm supposed to hear my clean guitar settings that is coming out of my amp (its pretty much like that for every pedal in the world lol pedal effect off=amp's sound) The problem is that when the effect if OFF, i can't hear anything like if my guitar is no plugged. All my cables work fine (i tested every single one of them) and its only when the effect is OFF that it doesnt work. So i can't use it on stage now because if i just turn off my distortion, i dont have any sound coming from the amp :P If anyone can help me thatd be cool :) (btw i'm not an expert in electronic stuff so telling me codes and stuff will just confuse me xD just explain what you mean and that should be good :) )
  14. I have an M9 and M5. Use them in my A & B rigs. Delay/Echo has eluded me. I don't guess I have the patience. I play in a cover band and we are doing Her Strut by Bob Seger. I know Pete Carr played lead on the tune and supposedly used an Echoplex. I can't seem to get either EchoPlex model to do that repeat after each riff. Any ideas as to achieve that? Thanx in advance for helping this old man.
  15. Hi I have a certain problem with the noise gate on my M5, I found the separate setup under dist group, but each preset has its own noise gate on additional setup (page 2). Now the manual says that I can access the page 2 setup by pushing the model select knob once on the preset. I did exactly that and it just switches thru effect groups. Can anyone advice?
  16. Line 6, what are the chances of getting any updates to the M series? Every couple years I do some research to see if there's anything new or exciting going on with the M Series. My hope was that with the M5 added to the lineup that the M Series platform was not dead and that Line 6 would update some patches or add some new effects. It's such a valuable pedal, I'd gladly pay for new effects or software improvements. I have the Strymon Timeline and the Eventide H9 but the M9 has always managed to keep a place on my board. I must say that the ongoing customer relationship with Eventide through H9 has be spectacular. Would love to see a model like that developed that involves the occasional update. Thanks, John Michael
  17. I'd like to try and get a 12 string sound using the Smart Harmony effect on my M5, but I have no clue where to start. Can someone please help?
  18. A couple of months ago I bought a M9, thought it was the perfect solution to pull a few pedals off my board, just to learn that the pedals I wanted to model are one that the M Series can't do! The M9 was meant to replace my: EHX Small Clone Boss TR-2 Fulltone Deja-Vibe The chorus model on the M9 sounds pretty bogus and doesn't even come close to the Small Clone. The Opto-Trem model gets in the ballpark of my TR-2 but sounds a little odd. The Uni-Vibe model sounds pretty awful. My question is- Does anyone know if Line 6 plans to update the models? If not I'm going to have to get rid of the M9 I just bought and put my Small Clone, TR-2, and Deja-Vibe back on my board... or look at a better modeling pedal. Thanks for the help!
  19. I recently purchased an expression pedal for the line 6 (a source audio dual expression pedal). It works with my m5 but for some reason, the full range of the heel - toe movement is not in sync with the range of whatever parameter I'm controlling. Example: 1) Heel down, parameter set to 0. Heel up, parameter on reaches about 75% of its range. It will not go further. 2)If I do go further, and set heel up to 100% of range, then heel down position is about 20%. Interestingly, it reaches 0% about 1/3 way up from the heel down position. Essentially, the range oscillates in such a way that "0" isn't totally heel down, but is instead at about 1/3 of the way. Thus, the sweep of the pedal ends up being parabolic instead of linear. Any suggestions? I attached a picture to summarize.
  20. Hello Line6 forum, I'm Phil from Lunatic Man's Dream!. I am looking for a effect unit that can deliver the following specs: - Wahwah sound controllable via expression pedal. So I don't need to run audio cable to my pedalboard but only control cables to switch my rack. - I want to be able, to turn that effect off by putting the pedal to "zero-position" OR by an integrated footswitch(like in Dunlop pedals). Depending on the way, the unit makes that possible, I choose a fitting expression pedal. Does the M5 work this way or do i have to programm special midi presets for having the wah turned on or off? Best regards, Phil
  21. My M5 started doing the "blue screen" where it never came on despite having the Line6 power supply. I actually dug out a power supply that put out 3 amps at the correct voltage just to double check that wasn't the problem. I removed a baseplate screw, scraped the case paint and replaced with a bare metal screw as suggested elsewhere-that solved the "on" problem. I can now reliably get the pedal to power on. It has, however, stopped passing audio in DSP mode (either bypass or effect on). In true bypass mode it will pass signal, so I've got to think the switch is OK. I've done a factory reset, and reloaded the firmware twice to no avail. Aside from disassembling it to see if there's a faulty ribbon cable, any other thoughts?
  22. I am thinking about investing in the M5 mostly for filters and modulation effects, I was wondering if I connect an external tap tempo to the expression socket will that work? I have a Boss DD-7 on my board and I was thinking it could be pretty cool to have a global tap tempo to sync both pedals. Has anyone tried this? Thanks for your input.
  23. Today I brought a brand new line 6 M5 and when I got home to start playing with it I plug it in and if starts flashing so I turn it on and it comes up with "Flash update mode waiting command..." I am unable to carry out a factory reset and therefore I am unable to use this product, I'm not sure what I can do to sort it out, is there anyone who can help me?
  24. Any experiences with the M5 as voice processor? I'd like to have it between a dynamic vocal microphone and the mixer in live gigs. Specifically, does the M5 have balanced inputs and outputs? And can it cope with microphone levels? Thanks a lot!
  25. HI, needing replacement knobs for M5..Anybody know what type will fit? maybe from this store...or other.. http://www.mammothelectronics.com/Guitar-Effect-Pedal-Knobs-s/25.htm Tnx!
