The HD modeling in these PODs provides previously unachievable sensitivity for a more realistic interaction with the 16 built-in HD amp models. Add to that the 90 plus modern and vintage-styled M-class effects, onboard looper 128 user presets and a comprehensive digital and analog I/O.
Line 6 mixed 15 years of amp modeling experience with 3 years of research to push past the limits of their previous amp modeling technology. After accumulating 16 sought after amplifiers and restoring them to peak condition with the help of LA's top tube amp experts, Line 6's POD HD Pedalboards use 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 unprecedented, warmth, feel, sustain, and articulation to provide you with all the amp tones you've been searching for.
Free v2.0 Firmware Update for POD HD300 and POD HD400
The free v2.0 firmware update dramatically expands the sonic palettes of POD(R) HD300 and POD HD400 multi-effects processors. Featuring seven additional HD guitar amps, a HD bass amp with matching cab and eight mic choices, two sound effects and more, this update is the perfect way to power up your POD HD.
Seven New HD Guitar Amps
To thank the POD HD300 and POD HD400 users who have been waiting so patiently for this update, you'll be the first to experience five HD guitar amps. Three of them are based on* the distinctive clean, crunch and overdrive tones of the beastly Soldano(R) SLO100 amp, a benchmark of modern high-gain tone. The other two--Line 6 Doom and Line 6 Epic--are fire-breathing, high-gain originals designed to scorch anything in their paths.
The update also delivers two amps based on* the Normal and Bright inputs of the legendary Marshall(R) "Plexi" 1959 Super Lead 100-watt amp. They provide the classic cascading crunch of this historic English head.
HD Bass Amp with Eight Mic Choices
Get essential thump based on* the immortal Ampeg(R) B-15NF Portaflex(R), one of the most popular studio bass amps of all time. The modeled cab is based on the original 15-inch speaker. Dial in your ideal bass tone with eight mic choices based on* Shure(R) SM57, Sennheiser(R) 421, AKG(R) D12, AKG(R) D112, EV(R) RE20, Shure(R) SM7B, Heil Sound(R) PR40 and Neumann(R) U47.
Vintage Mic Preamp and Hard Gate Effects
Based on the Requisite Y7 tube mic preamp, the "Vintage" HD preamp adds incredible warmth to guitar and bass tones. Its controls include Gain, HPF (High Pass Filter), LPF (Low Pass Filter), Phase and Output.
"Hard Gate" is an advanced gate capable of extremely quick response. With controls for hold time, decay rate and separate open/close thresholds, Hard Gate is ideal for any genre including metal. It can even be used to create erratic "sputter" and "splat" effects.
V2.0 firmware gives you the ability to bypass the cab model for any amp. Download the free v2.0 firmware now to add even more sonic power to your POD HD300 or POD HD400!

Unprecedented Flexibility with Stunning Simplicity

POD HD400 was designed by guitarists for guitarists.
