    POD HD Pro Guitar Multi Effects
    22 HD amp models.
    Line 6 has more experience with modeling technology than any other guitar company in the business. Our collection – which includes some of the finest vintage, modern and boutique tone machines ever created – has never sounded so good. Play with tones inspired by* heritage amps from Fender®, Vox®, Marshall® and Hiwatt®, refined boutique creations by Dr Z®, Bogner® and Divided By 13®, and many more. POD® HD Pro delivers 22 HD amp models in stunning HD quality.

    Alternatively, you can disable power amp models by selecting the preamp only from any of the 22 amp models to drive your tube amp’s power section. POD HD Pro has flexibility fit for any scenario, and can be optimized to run through a DT-series amplifier, a PA and anything else.

    100+ M-class effects.
    Line 6 stompbox modelers including the M9®, M13® and DL4™ set the standards for accuracy and authenticity in effects, establishing a new category known simply as “M-class.” POD® HD Pro includes a whopping collection of more than 100 M-class effects, including an incredible selection of classic delays, reverbs, modulators, pitch effects, overdrives, filters and more.

    To make the most of this collection you can chain together up to eight simultaneous effects, tweak the parameters of each to taste, and create parallel paths (two independent tones) each with its own amp and effects signal chain, from one or two input sources. Use this breathtaking power to craft classic sounds from the annals of tone, or design new soundscapes that are entirely your own.

    16 new speaker cab models.
    A speaker cab’s interaction with an amp plays a tremendous part in the shaping of a tone. For POD HD Pro, we developed 16 new cab models that present the tones 16 speaker cabinets with stunning weight and authority, including the tuning of each cab’s acoustic resonance and the speakers’ frequency response and interaction with the amplifier. Our cab models deliver every detail of this most crucial link in your sound chain.

    8 new mic models.
    In the studio, the decision to mic your speaker cab with a condenser, ribbon or dynamic mic is as crucial a tone choice as where you set your gain and tone knobs. For POD HD Pro, we totally rebuilt our mic models — with reference to eight great examples of essential recording mics — to present more sonic detail and realism than ever before.

    Dual Tone.
    Countless legendary artists have achieved signature tones by routing their signal through two rigs simultaneously. POD HD Pro makes this a breeze for you to achieve on stage and in the studio. Create two independent amp and effects chains and either pan them left-right, blend them in mono or route one to the 1/4-inch out and one to the XLR to process them differently — whatever gets your tone on.

    Intuitive user interface.
    If you’ve come to expect that great power comes with great complexity, POD HD Pro flips that maxim on its head. Never before has a multi-effect with so many capabilities been so simple to use. The rack unit’s user interface has clear, uncomplicated controls that are familiar to all guitarists. Small adjustments and deep programmability are achieved with speed and ease.

    More than a software editor/librarian.
    To make the most of a powerful tool like POD HD Pro, you need an impressive editing tool. POD HD Pro Edit goes way beyond the standard editor/librarian software to give you a full test bed for experimenting with sounds and fine-tuning every aspect of your tone, with separate sections for Effects, Amps, Mixer and Set Lists. POD HD Pro is a free download from line6.com.
    Set Lists and preset locations.

    Need a vast array of different tones available at the tap of a switch? No problem – POD HD Pro is ready to oblige. The unit’s preset memory includes 512 independent locations, so you can tweak and assign factory presets or craft radical new tones of your own, and save them to be summoned up instantly. Do you play in a band (or bands)? Organize your tones into Set Lists so the next tone you need is always on deck. Save up to eight Set Lists of 64 presets each.
    CustomTone.

    Once you have crafted your own superb custom POD HD Pro tones, why not share them with the world? At CustomTone.com you can not only share your POD HD Pro presets with other Line 6 users but you can download theirs, too — and it’s all totally free.
    Full analog and digital I/O.
    A comprehensive feature set is nothing without the connectivity to make it all work seamlessly in whatever environment the gig demands. To that end, the POD HD Pro rack multi-effect is equipped with all conceivable digital and analog I/O options. The front panel includes a 1/4-inch guitar input with pad and an XLR mic input with pad, high-pass filter, 48V phantom power and level control. The back panel provides stereo 1/4-inch and balanced XLR outputs with a 1/4-inch Dry Out for unprocessed guitar signal; MIDI in and out/thru; S/PDIF in and out and AES/EBU in and out for 24-bit digital connections. (The AES/EBU out doubles as the powerful L6 LINK™ connection.) There’s also a Variax™ VDI input for connection to Variax modeling guitars, a USB jack and much more. And of course there’s a 1/4-inch stereo headphones jack for silent jamming.
    Integration on stage and in the studio.
    Whether you use your POD HD Pro live or in the studio, or both, you’ll find a range of thoughtful and creative I/O options to help you maximize your rig. Bring favorite old analog stompboxes or stereo rack effects into the chain with the stereo FX Send/Returns with Line/Stomp level switch. Hook up an optional Line 6 FBV™ foot controller for optimum on-the-fly flexibility. Go straight to into your favorite DAW for recording or processing via the dedicated USB output or AES/EBU in/out.

    L6 LINK™ and DT-series amplifiers.
    In addition to doubling as an AES/EBU digital out, the L6 LINK XLR jack lets you directly connect to the DT series of Line 6 amplifiers, which are the perfect partners for POD HD Pro. On their own, DT amplifiers are like four boutique amps in one. But when DT amps and POD HD Pro connect, they seamless integrate to become a boutique amp factory. The selection of a POD PHD Pro preset automatically optimizes the analog components to best suit that tone. And that’s just the beginning…
    Flexible signal routing.

    To make the most of its enormous I/O flexibility, the POD HD Pro rack multi-effect offers easy and flexible signal routing. Follow its extremely user-friendly interface to assign individual or multiple inputs according to your connection requirements on stage and in the studio, and to route the signal through your amp and effects models in any order you desire.
    48-second looper.

    Connect your POD HD Pro to an FBV MkII Shortboard™ foot controller to get the most from the whopping 48 seconds of looping capability. Create anything from on-the-fly live backing loops to outrageous sonic layers in the studio. You can record your loop dry, then audition it with selected effects during playback, then overdub further parts, or even hit 1/2 Speed to slow your loop and drop its pitch an octave down.
    Versatile output modes.
    In addition to its flexible signal routing, POD HD Pro lets you select the required mode to match a variety of output connections. Choose Studio/Direct mode for recording or “DI to PA,” or choose from several Combo, Stack and Power Amp modes for connection to an external amplifier. Each mode is configured to maximize the tone and output level of the POD HD Pro with the outboard gear to which it is connected.

    Rock-solid build quality.
    Housed in a rugged all-metal chassis with equally sturdy metal faceplate, the POD HD Pro is built to take the knocks of the stage and studio alike. Its full-width, 2U design is perfect for mounting POD HD Pro right alongside your other first-call rack processors in the studio, while it’s also robust enough to survive the abuses of live use with a smile.

    The POD HD Pro has been a life saver for me in my studio. No more writing down eq settings and mic positions. I can easily swtich back and forth between any sounds I want with ease. For the money you cannot go wrong. If it were stolen.. I would find who did it and take it back.. But if I couldn't find the theif... Then I would buy another. It's that good.

    One last note to any potential buyers.. If you are trying the HD Pro at your local music store.. Do yourself a favor and don't use the factory presets. They are garbage. Just make a blank patch and flip through the amp models till you find what you want, then add pedals and such till you have YOUR tone. Line 6 makes a great product, but can't make a good tone with it for heck.
    Amazing amp models and effects. There are so many options, you get ANY tone you want. I use this mainly for direct recording and I have been able to get any tone I've wanted. I mainly play rock/metal (As I Lay Dying, TDWP, etc.) But I also have other bands in my studio, Everything from adult contempary to punk to metalcore. This wonderful guitar processor has been the "go to" for everyone. I own a couple of nice tube amps as well, but they cannot compete with the versatility of the POD. ALSO, The specs listed on MF are outdated. Since the HD PRO's release they have had several firmware updates that have included a couple of new british amp models (which sound amazingly warm) and also... A BASS AMP MODEL. Yes! That was one of the features I was sorly missing, but in the latest patch they included one. Sounds pretty tight I might add. The main complaint with the HD line is that there are far fewer amp models than the previous Line 6 processor... BUT.. EACH one of the HD's amp models are extremely high quality. They sound much closer to the real thing than anything else. Warm, dynamic, clear, and the best part. NO signiature Line 6 buzz that has always killed thier products in a mix previously.
    This thing is built like a rock. Solid metal caseing. all knobs and buttons seem solid. Jacks are tight. no wiggle, perfect fit. The display is bright enough to see no matter the lighting situation. All the ins and outs you could ever want.
    I have played all of the other processors in the price rage (Boss GT, Digitech, etc.) And this wins each time hands down... And if you ever want to use this live (which I plan on doing when I hit the road) you can always buy the external footswitch for complete control. I've never personally played the Ax Fx.. But I have seen hours of footage of other guitartists using it in their studios and know guitarists who all own it.. They all love it. It's no doubt the best guitar processor to date.. However, for the price it is out of most guitarists price range.. If you watch comparison videos between the POD HD PRO and the Axe Fx II you will be amazed how well the POD competes. In some cases it actually sounds better (call me crazy). So for 1/4 the price it's safe to say you can't go wrong with a processor of this quality.

    I have a Pod x3 and I totaly love it's diversity for guitar and bass, and its ability to drive my power amp.And when I saw the new HD Pro I was thinking "SWEET!!!" so I went out and snatched one up.Needless to say I was heartbrokenly disappointed in it.This units sound quality is about the same as a Pod X3, but only has half the effects and half the output power, and does a very poor job driving my power amp.
    Not worth the money investment.
    Lacking
    Mediocre
    Horrable

          upgraded to this unit from xt live, only had it a few weeks but I love the way hd pro edit allows you to program the signal chain. easy to use , does require time to tweak in the sound you want per individual taste. options seem unlimited, getting some great tones out of this. I considered an axe fx 2 but for 4 times the price and the fact that there is no place to get my hands on one to see if it is THAT much better, I think I'll be very happy with this unit, besides unless your a touring , professional musician who wants 3k tied up in an effects processor.

          Comments about Line 6 POD HD Pro Guitar Multi Effects:

          Sorry for the long review but wanted to let everyone know looking at this unit what I discovered.

          I almost wrote this review the week I got this unit and I'm glad I didn't. I've been using a Pod X3 Pro for two years and have some great tones for all the different music styles I play. I'm a die hard tube guy (hell I repair tube amp for a living. Having played a 72 Marshall 50w JMP for 30+ years and doing the stomp box dance to change sounds the Pods were great. Well I had read all about the new HD Pods a year after I bought my X3 Pro. I couldn't wait to get one. I finally saved up enough and went with the HD Pro to put in my rack. I had read all the reviews saying not to even use the presets (they are all correct, why would they pick those for examples of this unit). I went to the custometone.com site to download tones, and I made the mistake of searching on HD Pro and had the compatible tone box checked(but it still only showed 10 pages or tone). I tried those tones and with my Schecter C-7 all the tones sounded brittle and harsh. I tried the pad button to cut back the active pickups a bit without luck. I tried to duplicate the settings I had on my X3 Pro but they didn't sound at all like they did. I was about to return the unit, but I decided to get on the forum and do some reading and post some questions. I found that the typical setting I used on my X3 with inputs set both for guitar they said would make the input hit harder to the unit and make it sound bad. I tried like they set the input 1 guitar, input 2 variax and it sure did clean up the sound, but not enough. I got out my old Ibanez AR50 with Seymour JB's in it and it sounded good through the HD Pro. So I did some more reading and others talking about how sensitive the input of the HD series are (part of the changes with the touch sensitivity I'm sure). I had a great guy from the forum email me and went back and forth he wanted me to send my old patches since he also had both units and was going to see what he could do to help. Well a couple of weeks went by got busy with work and couldn't play. This last week I got back on and went to custometone.com again for tones and didn't change it to HD PRO but went with the HD-500. This time it brought up like 340 pages of tones not the 10 I saw before. I've found so many good tone. I've spent the last two nights sorting them out and trying them all(well the 100 or so I've downloaded so far, started with the 5 star ones).

          The problem is there are almost too many settings to tweak with the amp, power amp if you use the full amp setting and not just the preamp, then you have the speaker cabinet you can tweak settings on. I found that many patch have the master volume on the power amp section cranked full, when I dial that back it cleans up and sounds like the tones I'm used to.

          This is one sweat unit, couldn't afford one of those axe-fx units (already had a FBV foot controller for the Pod unit, which I wish they would of done a better job implementing with the HD series but oh well still works well).

          Next I've got to finish the 50w/50w tube power amp and get away from the solidstate unit I'm using.

          Don't get overwhelmed like I did with all the choice of settings, find some good patches on the site and tweak from there, just watch how you search the comparable or compatible check box doesn't seem to work.

          Extremely Happy

          By Bobby Davis

          Comments about Line 6 POD HD Pro Guitar Multi Effects:

          I would totally recommend this unit to other's who play Djent, Shred, or anyone basically into rock or metal genres.
          In this price range, I can't believe the # of features available. I'm referring not only to the diversity of effects, but the included POD HD Pro Edit software as well as the multitude of input/output options. I also love the the online updates, support, and community. You can upload your sounds to Line 6's community to share with others, or download theirs. The only reason I gave this a 9 is because I know that it lacks some sounds and options of other slightly more expensive rackmount units, such as the Rocktron Prophecy II, Avid Eleven, etc. Then again, those units are more expensive, and therefore in a slightly higher category, so it's not really a fair comparison.
          Again, for this price, excellent quality. One disclaimer: right out of the box, you won't be immediately impressed with the factory presets. They're mediocre at best. YOU NEED TO SPEND SOME TIME TWEAKING. I can't stress this enough. You need to read the manual(s), and spend some time online reading tutorials that others have created for this unit. There are so many parameters that you can manipulate, there are sounds in this thing for every style--but you do need to spend time tweaking. I've had it for 2 weeks now, and after much experimentation, reading, watching YouTube tuts, and downloading and dissecting other people's patches, that I'm finally getting some sounds that I'm really happy with. I love this unit.
          For $700, I feel this is an incredible value. When I originally began my search for a new rack effects unit, I was looking more at the Rocktron Prophecy II and even the Axe-Fx II. However, after listening to numerous sound clips and watching demos on YouTube, I chose the POD HD Pro over both of those (the Axe-fx was overkill for me anyway). I don't regret it one bit.

          The POD is used as my system for recording and I am very happy with it. Shipping time was excellent. Talking with your personnel and email communication is excellent. Your business is my first choice. Everything I receive from you is just as advertised. Thank you for being there and for the excellent service I always receive. Thanks again, very much.

          Pod HD Pro Dissapointment

          By William Burnett

          Comments about Line 6 POD HD Pro Guitar Multi Effects:

          I have a Pod x3 and I totaly love it's diversity for guitar and bass, and its ability to drive my power amp.And when I saw the new HD Pro I was thinking "SWEET!!!" so I went out and snatched one up.Needless to say I was heartbrokenly disappointed in it.This units sound quality is about the same as a Pod X3, but only has half the effects and half the output power, and does a very poor job driving my power amp.
          Not worth the money investment.
          Lacking
          Mediocre
          Horrable

          Overall I rate this product very highly. There are few products like this on the market and the others are great also but cost quite a bit more. If you record, play as a hobby, or tour, this is a great product. Wonderful tones at any volume. I highley recoment this product.
          I have owned this unit for about a week and there is still a lot of untapped ground. As far as features go it has more than I will ever need. It will accomidate for any musical style with FX from subtle to ridiculous.
          This thing is built very well. Made of metal and is pretty heavy. It sits in a studio but it is road worthy.
          It is a great value but you really need to invest time into it. There are tons of great tones to be had but you will have to work at it. The factory presets aren't my bag so all of my tones are either custom made or downloaded from custom tone then taylored to my liking.

          Great tone, great value

          I was looking into purchasing an Axe-FX II but for a quarter of the price, it's hard to beat the POD HD Pro. I've only had the unit for a week so I'm still quite new to it but what I can tell you is that the amp models are vastly superior to those of the XT Pro, X3 Pro, and POD Farm (all of which I have owned). Also, dialing in a decent custom tone seems easier on the POD HD than previous PODs. I'm loving the Engl Fireball model and with Pitch Slide I can acheive ultra-low tunings without sacrificing string tension.

          POD HD Pro

          By MXR fan

          Comments about Line 6 POD HD Pro Guitar Multi Effects:

          This POD is great. I replaced my full tube head with this and a rack tube power amp and have been very satisfied so far. I think Line6 has really had a break through with their modeling technology here because I have owned some of their other products and never thought they were very good....at-home practice tools at best.
          This new POD sounds just as good as the tube heads I've used and responds just as well to playing dynamic and use of the guitar's volume knob in most cases. I've been able to get the tones I've had in my head for so long but could never quite acheive with normal tube amps.
          I won't say whether it can nail the sound of a Mesa or a Bogner dead on because I haven't had the chance to use most of the amps that the models are designed on. But then again I've heard that some amps sound better than others of the same type depending on when and where they are made, tubes, transformers, speakers, etc.So my approach with this POD is not to try to get a particular amp sound but rather to get a sound that I've always wanted from an amp but couldn't. It's almost better to not look at the display when selecting amp/cab/mic models and just explore by ear alone.You might be surprised what you get.
          My two main sounds are the rectifier model for distortion and the Blackface Deluxe for clean. I use the bi-amp feature with a clone of each amp just to get a bit more volume on each channel. I turn off the cab models and use the 421 and 409 mics; one on each side per channel. The POD goes out to my 100w rack tube power amp and into my 4x12. The POD's effects are great but I only use the reverb. For delay and chorus I have my analog MXR pedals going through the FX loop(paid for 'em so I may as well use 'em). For me, this set up works really well. Bassically it's like having a traditional amp setup with a preamp that can shaped to just about any tone you can think of. The one issue I have is that the FX loop's mix level does something strange to the tone if you don't have it all the way up at 100%...sounds like a weird mid-boost that makes everything sound boxy. Not a huge deal but a little strange. I may consider getting Line6's larger foot controller so I can use the on-board effects but right now I just have the 4-button for channel switching.
          This thing has just about everything you'd ever need for playing live or recording. All the abilities of the bean version but with the usage capabilities of a rack unit (ins/outs). I especially like the dedicated tone knobs on the front panel. The only thing I'd like to see is and auto-save feature so you don't have to remember to save your changes after every little tweak.
          Very good build quality. Haven't had any issues with operation.
