“HD amp models deliver sonic depth, character and realism like never before,” remarked Line 6’s Mike Murphy. “Over the last few years, we’ve had teams working on assembling a museum-quality collection of vintage guitar amps, restoring each amp back to its pristine state, and developing new HD amp modeling technology. The result is a collection of amp models that far exceeds our expectations and is the biggest news in POD since POD itself.”
The 16 HD amp models offer a wide array of amp tones, inspired by* a variety of immortal modern and vintage guitar amplifiers, including a Fender Twin Reverb, Hiwatt Custom 100, Supro S6616, Gibson EH-185, Divided by 13 JRT 9/15, Dr. Z Route 66, Vox AC-30 (Top Boost), Marshall JTM-45 MkII, Park 75, Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier, ENGL Fireball 100, and more. (Recognizable amplifiers modeled for previous POD products have been re-modeled for POD HD using the new HD amp modeling technology.)
POD HD500, the flagship of the three-product family, features a comprehensive collection of digital and analog ins and outs, a 48-second looper, and over 100 M-class effects. Made popular by the Line 6 M13 and M9 Stompbox Modelers, M-class effects excel at everything from vintage fuzz to modern pitch effects. Modeled after classic stompboxes and rack gear, or custom-designed by Line 6, M-class effects include tangy choruses, syrupy sweet reverbs, distinctive delays, and much more.
POD HD500’s back panel includes quarter-inch balanced and XLR unbalanced outputs, XLR mic input, stereo FX send and return, MIDI in and out/thru, S/PDIF and more.
PODHD300 and POD HD400 feature full sets of ins and outs, a 24-second looper, and more than 80 and 100 M-class effects, respectively.
