How many different kinds of effects are included in M13 Stompbox Modeler?
More than you will ever be able to use on any one gig. The best of the best of modern and vintage delays, tremolos, phasers, flangers and rotary drums; choruses, ring modulators, classic overdrives to modern metal distortions and fuzz and beyond; a killer ocataver (perfect for bass), filters galore from envelope followers, filter wahs, voice box and crazy synth sounds. And if that’s not enough, there’s even a plethora of great reverbs with studio-grade algorithms to mimic rooms to caves and beyond.
What's True Bypass and why should I care?
True Bypass means that when all the effects are off, your signal bypasses the pedal's internal electronics and goes from the inputs directly to the outputs via a relay bypass circuit.
Is M13 Stompbox Modeler big and heavy?
No. It'll fit on your pedal board. Are you familiar with DL4™, our green four-button delay pedal? M13 is about the size of two of them. It's about 10 lbs and strong enough to take a beating.
Can I direct record with my M13 Stompbox Modeler?
Probably not. It would be just like plugging a stompbox straight into your recording rig. (But we've heard of artists who plug their M13 into a Pocket POD® and use its amp simulation for direct recording.)
What is a "scene"? A scene is a pedal board arrangement on your M13 Stompbox Modeler. You can create and save up to 48 different scenes. Create one for your metal band, one for your punk band, one for your Top 40 gig…you get the picture. No more tearing up Velcro® just to change one or two pedals.
What do the colored lights on each footswitch mean?
Each color references a specific type of effect: green is for Delays, blue is for Modulations, purple is for Filters, yellow is for Distortions and orange is for Reverbs. The colors are based on individual Line 6 stompbox modelers.
Can I use Expressional pedals with my M13 Stompbox Modeler?
Yup. 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 length of your delay time, dial up the reverb mix or change the depth of your tremolo.
How does the looper compare with that of the DL4? Much like the DL4, it's a straight-forward sound-on-sound looper (where you can build up sounds by overdubbing them one at time) but we have made a few upgrades: you can loop up to 28 seconds, you get one layer of undo/redo and you can use all of your effects while using the looper.
How does M13 Stompbox Modeler compare to POD® X3 Live?
They are different animals designed for entirely different uses. M13 Stompbox Modeler is built for players who want a massive collection of premium stompbox sounds to play with in front of their amp. There are no amp models.
