Line 6 POD HD Desktop
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.
HD Amp Modeling: Sound and Feel Like Never Before
HD amp models defy the accepted standard. They allow you to record with previously unachievable realism.
Creating these new HD amp models was no small feat. We mixed 15 years of amp modeling experience with 2 years of new research and development to build an entirely new amp modeling technology from the ground up. During that time, we 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 new 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.
