“HD amp models deliver sonic depth, character and realism like never before,” remarked Mike Murphy, Category Manager for POD and PC Products at Line 6. “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 an incredibly wide array of amp tones, and they do so with previously unachievable realism. They are 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.)

In the largest research project ever undertaken by Line 6, the HD Amp Modeling campaign required the development of an entirely new suite of software and hardware tools. These tools were built to capture, analyze, and translate into DSP code every nuance that analog circuitry imparts to the creation of an amplified guitar tone.

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 Line 6 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. POD HD300 and POD HD400 feature full sets of ins and outs, a 24-second looper, and more than 80 and 90 M-class effects, respectively.
