Tous les avis sur Line 6 MM4 notés 4/5
L'avis de stephane1971"Très bon couteau suisse"
La pédale est très robuste, l'accès aux réglages facile.
Qualité des sons :
top, le choix est vaste et on trouve facilement son son. On a droit à 4 footswitchs permettant de basculer sur 4 sons différents. C'est vraiment ingénieux.
On peut lui adjoindre une pédale d'expression pour moduler le son sur 2 positions (vitesse de la Leslie par exemple), c'est bien vu. Je l'utilise aussi bien dans mon Blackstar que avec ma folk.
Petit bémol : il faut une alimentation Line6

Hooking up the pedal is fairly simple. There are stereo inputs and outputs so if you’re using it in mono with one guitar and amp be sure to plug into the mono input and output. Editing the sounds can be a little tricky on the MM4 without the use of the manual, however Line 6 includes two stickers for the pedal to help you along. The pedal has your basic modulation knobs (Speed, Depth, and Mix) but also includes a Tweek and a Tweez knob that change different parameters depending on what pedal you are modeling. It’s nice that the pedal is tweakable, but this can get confusing if you don’t use the pedal often, so keep those stickers. Overall, the pedal is pretty well laid out and easy to use. Basically you just tweak the knobs until you find a sound you like, hold down on a preset button for a few seconds until the LED blinks and you’ve stored your sound to that footswitch. Basic usage is simple, but to get into all of what this pedal can do it is best to read the manual.
I am not overly impressed with this pedal the way I am with the DL-4. It is a good idea and I love the layout and functions but I feel this pedal falls short in the sound department. There are a couple choruses and a phaser that sound decent, but the other models sound very processed and digital, in a bad way. The tremolo and rotary sounds are especially disappointing. If you are looking for a warm analog sounding modulation you would better off looking elsewhere. Line 6 was able to get some great analog sounding delays packed into the DL-4 but, there is just something very digital sounding about this pedal which can be useful for some applications. There is also a significant drop in the volume when I use this in the loop of different amps.
Overall I think Line 6 had a good thing going with this pedal but fell short. I like the idea of the layout and I love my DL-4 but there is just something lacking in the sound and it is very digital and unnatural. Some people may like that and find it usable. There is also a definite drop in volume when engaged in my rig, although there are aftermarket modifications to remedy this. I feel this pedal is too large to keep on my board for the few good sounds it produces and that my money would have been better spent on a few separate pedals instead of an all in one unit. Great idea, bad execution.

Editing and saving the effects could not be any easier. Select the bank you want to save the effect to, select the effect, dial in the settings for the effect, then press and hold the bank button where you want to recall the effect until in blinks and you are done. The manual for this pedal is excellent. It gives a little history on the modulation pedal or effect the MM4 is replicating, and gives example settings and a description of how the controls work for each effect.
I have only ever used this pedal with my electric guitars. The effects I use the most on the MM4 are the Tri-Chorus, Phase 90, Leslie, and rotary speaker. This pedal works best in front of the amp and before distortion pedals. When I have used this pedal in the effects loop the guitar tone sounds overly processed.
The best thing about the MM4 is the convenience of having 16 different effects in one easy to use to pedal. The most unfortunate thing about the MM4 is that you can only use one effect at a time. It would be nice to have the option to use a chorus and a phaser simultaneously, but in no way do I believe this is a deal breaker for the pedal. The MM4 is a more than adequate substitute for many of the effects it models. Even if you use only 4 of the 16 effects, the pedal is a better bargain than buying 4 individual pedals to produce those same effects. Are the MM4 effects IDENTICAL to the original effects they are replicating? No, but they are VERY good imitations.

The configuration of the Line 6 MM4 is pretty easy to follow, but does take a little bit of time to understand all the ins and outs simply because there is a lot going on here. There are 16 different modeling settings ranging from all different types of flangers, rotarys, phasers, choruses, and tremolos, in addition to a panner, a ring modulator, and a vibrato. As you can tell, pretty much all of the modulation effects you can think of are covered here and each is modeled after another stomp box or effect. There are four switches that you can save your own presets on by holding each one down while you've got the sound you like. There is then five knobs for controlling the sound of each setting, and each does different things depending on which setting you are on. For this reason the manual comes in very handy as it will outline what each knob does on each setting.
The sound quality of the Line 6 MM4 is pretty good, but nothing is too far above average in my opinion. While its certainly nice to have this many different modulation effects in one box, only a handful of the effects really stand out for me. I've only used this pedal with guitar although it would work fine for any electronic instrument. The sounds on here are probably best suited for live shows when you don't want to use five or six different stomp boxes at once, but for recording I would much prefer to use individual pedals as they have a much high sound quality than the MM4.
I've been using the Line 6 MM4 for about three or four years and it is a perfect pedal for live shows, and is not so perfect for recording in my opinion. The price of the Line 6 MM4 isn't too expensive and will certainly save you money if you are looking for all of these sounds. While I do like most of the products that Line 6 puts out, the Line 6 MM4 isn't one of my favorites in this line, as I think the sound quality could be a bit higher. However, taking into account the versatility of this pedal and its reasonable price, this is overall a good buy.

The layout is pretty simple: With the first knob I choose the model. The functions Speed, Depth, Tweak and Tweez (?) adjust the relevant parameters of the effect. The first two are basically self explanatory. The last two vary from effect to effect. The last know lets you adjust the mix.
On the back you have stereo inputs and outputs and an input for an additional controller. This unit needs 12V and runs on an external power supply (don't use the batteries - they won't last).
You basically have four different presets. They are very easy to program and really all you have to do is play around until you find the sound you like. Once you are satisfied press one of the four foot switches until the LED above starts blinking. Now the sound has been assigned to that switch.
The manual is also very helpful as it explains in detail the types of effekt Line 6 has modeled. You also get a few tips on how to achieve certain sounds.
This unit is built to last.
I think in general the sounds are very good. I don't care about chorus too much but this pedal does have some nice ones. They are very lush and deep - sometimes maybe a bit too overwhelming on the original signal. The tremolo is quite alright and has a certain depth a lot of other products out there are missing. It still doesn't compare to an analog one and I never use it. I really love the phaser though as it sounds great from subtle to full warble. I usually add a little bit to my basic signal to give it a bit of shimmer.
This unit can deliver a lot of crazy sounds and I think it really sounds good.
I really like the sturdy construction but would have like it better if this unit could have run on 9V as well. I also think the dimensions make it very hard to fit in a complete pedal board. Many times have I considered to sell it and buy an MXR Phaser instead (I use the phaser most often).
I think the effects harmonize well with each other and it supplies a lot of potential to create new sounds and recreate classic ones.
