M9 - Footswitch Expression FX Pedal?


Recommended Posts

Hey all.  One thing I love having on my tone is a rotary effect where it can speed up and slow down with the press of a footswitch, like a Leslie.  The Rotosphere does that, but it's big and bulky, and I would like to utilize the Rotary Drum/Horn effect on the M9 instead.  However, it looks like the only way I could achieve this is by using the EX-1 Expression Pedal and setting the up position to fast and the down to slow.


I would rather use a footswitch, or a separate sustain pedal, to execute the simple effect of toggling the slow/fast options for the rotary effect on the M9.  Is that possible, and if so are there any pedals that can do that?

Yes, but you will have to make your own. The trick with making an expression footswitch for Line 6 stuff is you must wire in a 10k ohm resistor between the +/- of the jack. Its actually very easy if you have the aptitude for this sort of thing. I'm pretty new to it myself, but after messing around a bit I came up with a pretty fantastic design. I started out making a single momentary switch, but then thought "maybe I can piggy back the momentary switch onto an on/off toggle switch" Guess what? it works great! So I have both functions available without having to bend over to flip a switch or anything. I will try to post some pics, I describe how everything works right in each photo.
