POD® HD Pro F.A.Q.
It’s the ultimate expression of digital amp and effects modeling for professional gigging and recording guitarists. It delivers total flexibility, incredible versatility and stunning HD tones that provide the detail, dynamics and touch sensitivity of the finest tube amps and effects.
In amp modeling evolution, HD amp modeling is the top of the food chain. Line 6 has always strived to provide guitarists with the best feeling, best sounding and most accurate models, and HD amp models truly are the best of the best.
HD amp modeling technology delivers the nuances of analog tube amp design like never before. It includes singled-ended and push/pull outputs, Class A and Class AB interactions, a variety of phase inverter topologies, parallel preamp paths and much more. The result is unprecedented sonic resolution, depth, clarity and that crucial “feel factor” that can be so elusive in other amp modeling technologies.

More than 100 M-class reverbs, delays, modulations, overdrives, filters and more from famous Line 6 pedals including DL4™, M13® and M9® Stompbox Modelers. Each of the vintage classics and contemporary favorites is fully adjustable and routable. (Use up to eight at once in any order.)
While each amp and effect model starts with classic parameters and control settings based on the originals, POD® HD Pro allows you to tweak the tones of each far beyond the capabilities of the vintage or boutique tube amp or effect being modeled. The result is like having your own amp tech right on hand to mod the amp of your choice at a second’s notice, and you can save your “modded models” to presets for instant recall at a later time.
DT50 amplifier is the perfect pairing for POD HD Pro. Connect them via L6 LINK™ and watch the two seamlessly integrate into a boutique amp factory! POD HD Pro adds effects, additional amp voicings, foot control and instant scalability (including stereo operation with multiple DT50 amplifiers). The days of plugging a POD into the front of an amp are over!
In a word, very. You decide the order of effects, how many you want, what comes before and after the amp, and much more – the options are virtually endless. You can even run two different amps in Dual Tone mode and combine them or assign separate stereo outs. You have total control over your signal chain.
A massive 512 presets can be stored, divided into eight Set Lists of 64 Channels each, all instantly retrievable at the twist of a knob, or the tap of a switch on an optional FBV Shortboard™ MkII foot controller.
