["This is my main pedal for modulation effects. It replicates an arsenal of chorus, phaser, and tremolo effects very nicely. I've used the tri-chorus setting on a number of tracks I've recorded with the Mayfield Four and Alter Bridge."](http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/20392-mark-tremontis-top-5-amps-and-myles-kennedys-top-5-pedals?page=3)more
This photo taken by Graeme Flegenheimer of Buckethead and his pedalboard reveals Buckethead uses a Line 6 MM4 Modulation Guitar Effects Pedal (it's the blue pedal, second from the right in the string of pedals pictured).

This image comes from [this article from *Pro Guitar Shop*](http://proguitarshop.com/andyscorner/prince-the-unsung-guitar-hero) where they write "Along with his love of Boss effects, Prince is a regular user of the [Digitech Whammy](http://equipboard.com/items/digitech-whammy-pitch-shifting-guitar-effects-pedal), [Dunlop Crybaby Wah](http://equipboard.com/items/dunlop-gcb95-cry-baby-wah-wah) (though he has been known to use a Colorsound Wah as well), and Line 6 MM4 modulation modeler."more
"All of Mason’s clean boost and dirt pedals are on a no-name loop box that Mason bought “from a dude on eBay.” On a separate loop station, Mason runs his more trippy effects, starting with an Electro-Harmonix Stereo Memory Man and a Pigtronix Tremvelope. Next in line are Wampler Faux Tape Echo and Faux Spring Reverb stompboxes. The final effect is an old, tried-and-true Line 6 MM4 Modulation Modeler."more
Controlled by MAMI's tech, Motchy. > The MM4 features spot-on models based on classic mod units like the brilliant optical tremolo found in the 1965 Fender® Deluxe Reverb® amp, the badass bias tremolo of the 1960 Vox® AC15, the legendary MXR® Phase 90 favored by Eddie Van Halen, and even the dripping phase effects of the funkadelic Mu-Tron® Bi-Phase. Step into the dimension of rotating speakers with models based on the Fender® Vibratone and the classic Leslie® 145. You’ll also get models based on a pair of MXR® and A/DA’s essential flangers, as well as the Boss® CE-1 Chorus Ensemble that made Andy Summer’s shimmering sound the cornerstone of the Police and the signature guitar sound of the Eighties. Wanna modulate your entire consciousness? Check out the outrageous Ring Modulator, which will turn your guitar into a talking robot from the outer Zarkon system; select between Amplitude and Frequency Modulation and don’t be surprised if a mothership lands on your mixing board. Whether you opt to head for the Twin Peaks of the mysterious tremolos found in the MM4, the chewy pleasures of its mouth-watering Uni-Vibe® model, or the fighter jet swoosh of its creamy flangers, you’ll be able to save and recall up to four of your own creations (or access the ones we’ve preloaded) by simply pressing and holding one of the four solid footswitches; team the MM4 up with the EX-1 expression pedal to morph tremolo speed, wave shape, chorus depth or any other of many MM4 variable parameters on the fly and in real-time. -Line 6more
I don't use modulation effects often enough to justify having individual pedals for everything, but I still want to be able to use phaser, tremolo, and flanger when I want them, so this pedal took care of those needs. It's not perfect, and the effects aren't amazing sounding, but they do the job well enough.
Pros and couns awesome. Nice simulator as every single Line6 products, but these series FM4-MM4-DL4- has a problem, the drop volume when used in line with other pedals. But, you can solve these dramas making a lil upgrade mod to became TBP and adding an extra patch. The pedal will become an indispensable tool for you sound, truste me! The boring thing is that you can´t mix the fxs per bank, you can´t blend chorus with phaser and else....
I used to have many modulation stompboxes before buying the MM4: Ibanez CS9 Stereo Chorus, Dunlop Univibe, Boss TR-2 Tremolo and MXR Phase 90. They all sound awesome, but they're too many. The MM4 is a great piece of gear that gets the job done.
Great! Some of the effects do have a volume drop, but I compensate by eq'ing from the bass. Great phasers, leslie rotary speaker, I use the panning with my bass and 2 powered speakers.
