Re: Line 6 M-9 mods

I had it done too... It's excellent.

I feel the switch upgrade is more needed than the audio upgrade. The audio upgrade takes some getting used to. Some delays wont work the same, mostly the lofi and tube delay non through versions... They get more signal from input and react differently than before, i.e. more distorted if you use the drive. But it wasn't a big deal to me to switch to the through versions.

While you're sending it in you might as well get both done. It does sound better.

 I cannot say enough good things about his work. I had been seriously considering moving on to a more audiophile but less versatile  delay like the strymon time line  before having these mods done but now I see no need. The signal path is cleaner and more transparent, the noise floor is reduced, it now has variable output gain, the algorithms have less digital grit and of course the switches are hardwired, smooth as silk and accurate. i will have the same thing done to my M-5 eventually. One thing it did not cure was the loop degradation  that Jeff Duke described when going in to reverse  while in overdub mode at a point other than the beginning or ending of the loop, that i believe is a software issue they never fixed.
