    Would the Line 6 M9 work in an amp that has no controls on the loop level?
    I have a Suhr minimix II also and wonder if that would work, but I can't see how you'd set the "pedal" effects to 100% wet.

    Anybody tried this unit in a non-buffered loop at gig level volume?

    Since this would be exclusively for echo, reverb, vibrato/trem, flange etc, do you think it would better than alright in front of the (channel switching) amp? Toss up?

    I've been running one in the fx loop of a Pittbull 45 for a little bit. I believe that is buffered though. It just has a hi / lo switch and either position seems to work about the same. Sounds great. I'm using it for delays and some modulation and it sounds good.

    The M9 does work fine in the effects loop of my 15W Egnater Tweaker (which has no level control), but that's a buffered loop. I think it's really going to depend on the particular loop in your amp.

    The M9 also works fine in front of the amp, but if you're using amp OD, some effects (time effects, etc.) may send better in the loop.

    A lot of (most?) effects in the M9 can be set to full wet.

    I've just got mine through. I looked at the Minimix but ended up going for the Xotic X Blender, only because I liked the idea of being able to totally switch it off.
    I'll let you know how it works out.

    You can run delays etc 100% wet. Use a volume pedal model in a slot before the delay to control the delay level in a parallel loop.

    I personally use mine in the loop of a channel switching amp. It's totally fine if played thru the clean channel in front. I have found the delay and verbs to not sound good fed into the gain channel(unless in the loop)
