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.
