This one is a really easy mod; it’s much easier than the previous dedicated scene select mod. The Line6 M-series are all capable of using an expression pedal to change parameters within a given model. Things like delay rate, mix level, tones, pretty much any parameter can be adjusted on the fly using Line6’s expression pedal or any expression pedal that uses a 10k linear potentiometer (so, Ernie Ball VP, VP Jr. are out, as are standard Mission Engineering pedals.) The Line 6 expression pedal is quite simple, using only a 10k potentiometer between the tip and sleeve of a regular 1/4″ connector. When the potentiometer is all the way “up” then you can set the maximum parameter value, when it’s all the way “down” you can set the minimum value. This video shows you how to set these (and happens to use a knob as well).

This allows the M5 user to use only one switch to toggle the preset scroll screen, rather than having to aim for (and usually miss) hitting […]

This is awesome!
I am gutted. This band and this man have been such a big part of my life for what seems like forever. I remember when “Fight for Your Right” first came out – what a strange and wonderful sound! Coupled with Run DMC’s Raising Hell and LL Cool J’s Bigger and Deffer, The Beastie’s License […]
