    I found that a guitarist i'm playing with currently had an M13 unit sitting on a shelf unused. He told me to take it for as long as I need to play around with it... so... here sits an M13 unit on my desk.

    I've been reading through the manuals, etc... reset it to default, etc as I always do when I get a used Line6 unit.

    What I was most surprised and/or potentially let down by is that there's no EQ functions in the unit that I've found. 2-band, 3-band, semi-parametric, etc. I just unwittingly assumed that there would be some EQ modules in here to tweak overall tone with before, middle or after effects processing. I see that (as expected) the different effect units have some tone control, but nothing that can be popped into a scene, or 4A, B or C to pop on and off for different tone settings.

    Surprised me seeing as how all the other XT, X3, etc type units had great EQ options. I understand that the M13 is intended to be differnet from a Pod or XT/X3, but having EQ modules that are able to be saved to scenes, etc seems very 'logical' and 'necessary' at least to me.

    Am I missing something or am I expecting to much from the M13?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nope, you are not missing anything. At first we wanted the message to be simple. All 4 stompbox modelers (DL, MM, FM, DM) plus Verbzilla in one box. From there we have been doing updates and adding thing.

    So one of the things we are working on for the early fallish update are EQs. We will see.
