Line 6 POD HD300 Review

POD HD300 represents a giant leap forward for amp modeling. It is the only multi-effect pedal to boast 16 state-of-the-art Line 6 HD amp models, 80+ modern and vintage-styled M-class effects, and a comprehensive digital and analog I/O.

HD amp modeling: sound and feel like never before
HD amp models defy the accepted standard. They feel, behave, and interact with previously unachievable realism.

Creating these new HD amp models was no small feat. Line 6 mixed 15 years of amp modeling experience with 3 years of new research and development to build an entirely new amp modeling technology from the ground up. During that time, they 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 you to fall in love with.

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.

Your amp collection—now in HD!
On the POD HD300 menu is a collection of freshly modeled amps, many of which are brand new to POD, and all of which are essential for performing guitarists who require a wide variety of tones in one streamlined, multi-FX-sized package. […]

Orange brings the Dark Terror

Orange Dark Terror begins in the already established control scheme of the Thunder series of amplifiers, but brings in a brand new high gain preamp comprised of three ECC83 tubes. This amp will probably sound like a beast, and being only a 15-watt amp, you’re going to be able to rip it up wherever you are. Though, considering its class A wattage, this thing might be louder than you’d think. […]

In Search of a High EQ

In the jargon of producers and recording engineers, equalizers fall into two general categories: “surgical” and “character.” The surgical EQ is used correctly, e.g., when you wish to focus on a problem frequency without affecting the neighboring frequencies. Much like a surgeon, you want to go into a narrow band with a very precise cutting tool […]
