I noticed that @CubistEffects had an interesting Tweet this morning, letting people know about a YouTube video he has featuring a modded Line 6 Filter Modeler (FM4). I was curious and had to watch. First off, Christian is the owner of Cubist Effects out of Sydney, Australia and he does some great work on repairing and modding pedals. You can learn more at his site (http://www.cubisteffects.com).
I’m hoping that Christian sees this post and can add some more information.. like what happens if you plug a guitar in to this? I know there are plenty of gear heads that are looking for noise generation, and this pedal with the mods seems pretty great for this.
Christian just created a post on his site regarding this mod. You can read more about it here:

Here is the official product description:

I found a good video by gearwire that demos this pedal’s features:
