"We've got the Line 6 doing the job of all the weird synth experimentation that came from a lot of Chili Pepper songs… This one is for a bunch of the synth sounds, like sequential kind of noises and some really heavily synthed out tremolo sounds," says Josh Klinghoffer's guitar tech about the Line 6 FM4 Filter Modeler Guitar Effects Pedal.more

"The guitarist did, however, employ a few pedals. “I used the Line 6 FM4 Filter Modeler so much that I broke it,” he says. “Now it makes noises it’s not supposed to.” Davies also used a Line 6 DL4 Delay Modeler to create cool, swell-and-recede effects on “How We Roll,” and on “Empire” he used a Digi-Tech Whammy pedal to sustain a note and then “play” the melody by manipulating the pedal with his foot to change the pitch."more

A crazy sounds machine, but has the same trouble of his brothers, the drop down volume, so you have to use a new button mod to make the pedal TBP and adding a new patch... But it is a marvelous pedal but you have to spend some hours to figure how you gonna wisely
I know a ton of professional touring musicians who use this all the time. Usually with some modifications but I have yet to use this guy very often. As you can tell on my board I'm a bit of a pedal hoarder-or more honestly-a gear hoarder but I love the options. Lots of stuff sits dusty only to be that key ingredient for some lil' part. Music is fun.
Nice piece of gear! Useful and funny. I bought this because i was really courious to hear it. Now i love it because you can switch from a simple band pass effect to mutron style envelope filters, to tremorama style effect to oby wha (one of my favs) or string synth effects . They sounds really natural and clear but itsn't really simple and immediate like fm4 or other machines... enjoy
