Product Description

POD HD represents a giant leap forward for amp modeling. It is the only desktop multi-effect to boast 16 state-of-the-art Line 6 HD amp models, 100+ modern and vintage-styled M-class effects, and a collection of essential digital and analog ins and outs. POD HD is the most up to date version of the original, time-tested lineage of Line 6 desktop direct-recording devices.

New! Free v2.0 Update

Free v2.0 update from Line 6 dramatically expands the POD HD Desktop sonic palette! Get two HD amp models based on* the legendary Marshall "Plexi" 1959 Super Lead 100-watt head. Experience the world's first HD bass amp model based on the immortal Ampeg B-15NF Portaflex (with eight incredible mic options), and warm up any guitar, bass, or vocal track with a vintage-voiced tube mic preamp that you can drop into any point in your signal chain. Get all the HD amp models plus expanded deep-edit parameters and more -- totally free.

HD Amp Modeling

HD amp models defy the accepted standard. They allow you to record with previously unachievable realism.

Creating these HD amp models was no small feat. Line 6 mixed 15 years of amp modeling experience with 2 years of research and development to build an amp modeling technology from the ground up. During that time, Line 6 hunted down 16 incredible amplifiers and -- with the help of some of LA's top tube amp experts -- restored each one back to peak condition. The modeling technology uses 10 times more amplifier information than before, including single-ended class A tube stages, class AB push/pull interactions, power supply behavior, and more. The result is exceptional warmth, feel, sustain and articulation for your recordings.

Tube amp fanatics have long enthused that their favorite stacks and combos aren't merely "amps" but instruments themselves, with playability equal to that of the guitar plugged into them. New HD modeling takes the POD HD experience to that same exalted level, capturing the genuine playability that great guitarists demand - with nothing to mic up or isolate.

Get a great intro to the POD HD with this video from Line 6:

100+ M-class FX

Made famous by Line 6 M13 and M9 Stompbox Modelers, M-class FX have found their way into the hearts of many musicians. POD HD features a whopping 100+ M-class effects to craft your sound. With this wide tonal palette to play with, you can sound like anyone under the sun, or no one but you. Route up to 8 FX at once in any order and combination.

- 19 delays (including cool tube and solid-state tape echoes)
- 23 modulations (including both blackface-style opto and brownface bias-modulating tremolo, phasers, choruses and pitch effects)
- 17 distortions (classic stompbox distortion, to vintage fuzz, to thick metal chunk)
- 26 filters (including wahs and several exclusive custom filters)
- 12 compressors and EQs (including stomp comps and studio tube compression)
- 12 reverbs (from surfy springs, to studio plates, to cutting-edge digital room sounds)

Unprecedented Flexibility-stunning Simplicity

Beyond the mere depth of the amp and FX models, POD HD offers flexibility to mix and match amps, effects, cabs, mics and more in multiple pre-set rigs, attainable at the touch of a button.

The engineers behind POD HD made it easy to access its deep programmability. POD HD was designed by guitarists for guitarists. Plug in and record on the fly -- spend time playing rather than programming. Edit and organize all your sounds via computer with the included editor/librarian software. (Mac/PC)

POD HD connects to just about anything and everything in your studio with its stereo balanced outs, USB 2.0, S/PDIF out, 1/4-inch input and XLR input.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (13 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. ""Line 6 nails it with the new Pod""
Sound: The sounds are realistic and full. What impressed me as much was the response of the unit when you play. It "feels" like you are playing through the actual amp you have called up. There are so many variations with effects and amps I never find myself at a loss for tonal variations that are appropriate to the situation. I love the editing capabilities of this unit. After owning the other Pods from Line 6 over the years I find this one is by far the most expressive and responsive unit they have come up with to date. I use it for computer recording and really find it irreplaceable. Feature: It comes with a new smaller power cable and USB cable for transferring sounds from and to your computer. All you need is a guitar cable to plug in and play. Ease of Use: The model ships with multi banks of great sounds on board and 512 slots to create your own. There is a slight learning curve with the functions of what buttons are assigned to what function, but it is only slight. The manual is clear and descriptive as I have found all of the past Line 6 manuals to be. I do miss the colorful Pilot Manual cover that came with past models, but this is just nostalgia. Compared to past models this one is a dream though. Everyone has a horror story of trying to use the old pod first time out on a gig. It just didn't happen as it required time with it to program. I really haven't had time to explore all of the things this Pod is capable of yet including running bass and vocals though it. It responds like a real amp so I really like that aspect of it. Quality: The unit looks sturdy and well made with quality pots and connectors. The design is sleek and attractive and a slight bit bigger than the previous Pods so forget using your old Pod shoulder bag with it. It is just a bit too big. Intentional? I don't know but it is still compact enough to fit in an overnight bag and take with you for a weekend out of town. Value: I obviously sound a bit biased towards Line 6 having owned several of their past products but this one is hands down the best thing they have ever come out with in my opinion. There are many, many usable sounds right out of the box and there is a ton of room for creativity to get in there and build your own. With the choice of using 2 amps and 8 effects in any order you want to put them in, the possibilities really do sound limitless. I love this unit. Manufacturer Support: I got a chip for an old Pod sent to me in the past. That was about it. I've never had any of their gear break on me. The Wow Factor: Aside from being very practical for the budget I'm working with this unit is esthetically pleasing to the eye as well with its' sleek lines and an enticing color, giving it a commanding, mysterious appearance. Overall: I'll probably play this baby out. Line 6 seems intent on keeping this new modeling format around so I can only see them adding to it. I was directed to load 6 new amps and a tone list as soon as I took mine out of the box as they had developed new sounds and amp models for it already. That is very impressive to be able to get those without having to do any mods to the unit, just log on to the Line 6 website and in less than 5 minutes you have all of the new sounds in your flash memory.
