Using updated modeling technologies, Line 6's PODHD modeling processor pedalboards have achieved a breakthrough in design and implementation. These PODs feature a previously unachievable sensitivity for a more realistic interaction with the 16 built-in HD amp models and add 100 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.
