The first desktop POD featuring revolutionary HD modeling
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. Line 6 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, 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 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. POD HD includes 16 HD amp models based on*:
¢ Fender Twin Reverb
¢ Hiwatt Custom 100 (DR103)
¢ Supro S6616
¢ Gibson EH-185
¢ Fender Bassman
¢ Fender Blackface Deluxe Reverb

Blackface ˜Lux VIB

Blackface Double VIB
Fender Twin Reverb is an all-time classic of biting twang and shimmering clean tones. This model is based on* a Fender Twin Reverb œVibrato channel, which is a separate preamp circuit with clipping characteristics that are different than the œNormal channel due to an additional 12AX7 tube stage.
Tweed B-Man BRT
Based on* a Fender Bassman, the amp that started it all “ instant rock and roll tone. This model is based on the amp™s œBright channel, which provides a different voicing from the œNormal channel by utilizing the second half of the first preamp tube. (The œNormal channel uses the first half only). High frequencies are increased due to the addition of a bright cap across the volume knob.
Brit J-45 NRM
This model is based on* a Marshall JTM-45 MkII, which marked the beginning of the distinctively bright and crunchy sound that Marshall amps are known for. The œNormal channel is adept at big, bold clean tones.
Brit P-75 NRM
Based on* the œNormal channel of a Park 75, a Jim Marshall-designed amp that enjoys cult status for its powerful Plexi-style tones. The œNormal channel delivers a slightly darker tone than the œBright channel, a model of which already appears in POD HD.
