Product Description

Tired of the same old effects? You say you want something a little bit... different? The FM4 Filter Modeler, part of Line 6's award winning line of Stompbox Modelers, gives you an array of vintage and new effects from just a wee bit odd to full frontal freaky! From the gentle auto-wah of an envelope filter to the complete wackiness of mutated VCO controlled ring modulators, FM4 can get as strange as you wanna be.

"Noise--that is, disturbing music--is the harbinger of a new social order." (Jean Jacques Nattiez, "Music and Discourse: Toward a Semiology of Music," 47.)

I own all of the Line 6 stompbox modelers and overall, except for a bad volume drop problem in the MM4 modulations modeler, I am pleased with them. They give you a library of sounds that you might not otherwise be able to afford to experiment with.

The FM4 is the crazy purple one that emulates various filters and synth sounds. It is designed for more adventurous and experimental musicians who seek a broad palette of timbres to choose from. For example, Buckethead has one of these on his board, and I have seen a demo on YouTube in which the guitarist uses only the FM4 and a looper to make some interesting electronic music.

The patches include (as listed in manual):
1. Tron Up - inspired by Mu-Tron III
2. Tron Down
3. Seeker - inspired by Z-Vex Seek Wah
4. Obi-Wah - based on Oberheim VCF
5. Voice Box - inspired by vocoders/talk boxes
6. V-Tron - like a combination of talk box + Mu Tron III
7. Throbber - inspired by Electrix Filter Factory
8. Spin Cycle - inspired by Anderton's Wah/Anti-Wah
9. Comet Trails
10. Slow Filter - makes filter sweep swells
11. Octisynth - combines ring modulator, synthesizer VCO, and vibrato
12. Synth-O-Matic - inspired by various vintage synths
13. Attack Synth - inspired by Korg X911
14. Synth String - inspired by Synth String
15, Growler - combination of GR700 and Mu-Tron III
16. Q Filter - a "parked" wah

Aside from the patch selector dial, there are five other control knobs that do various things dependent upon the patch. You can program in four presets and use them as stompboxes on the gig.

This pedal has sonically revolutionized my pedalboard! If your curious, the FM4 has appeared on the boards of many musicians, including Omar Rodríguez-López (The Mars Volta) and the Locust (guitarist uses one while the bassist actually uses two at once!). There are so many variations within the 16 effects, which range from beautiful to face-melting. There's TRON UP/DOWN which you can use to get a nice auto wah effect. You also got a classic Frampton-esque VOICEBOX, which sounds even better when using the expression pedal (not included). Then there's the GROWLER which is one of the more aggressive synths. If you like playing experimental music, and you want a guitar synth with presets, the FM4 is the way to go.

I ordered 2 line 6 pedals becuase I was looking to try new pedals and add to my board. I sent both right back the day after recieving them. This would be ok for someone learning how to play and practicing in the bedroom and wanting to experiment with effects but way, way over priced for the quality of the effects. Definitely not a pedal I would gig with.
