No more tearing up Velcro just to switch out one or two pedals. Plus, the M9 Stompbox Modeler features MIDI in/out, for you to back up your scenes to your computer or control the unit with a MIDI controller.
Inspired by the simplicity of classic stompboxes, the Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler is incredibly easy to use. Tweak your tones on the fly using the dedicated knobs and easy-to-read LCD window.

It has all the necessary looper controls with dedicated footswitches to make looping easy: Record, Record/Overdub, Play/Stop, Play Once, Undo/Redo, Half Speed and Reverse (The looper can be used simultaneously with the three FX Units.).
The Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler features plenty of ins and outs. 1/4" mono/stereo inputs and outputs (with True Analog Bypass or DSP Bypass) let you put M9 Stompbox Modeler before, after or in between your other pedals.
