Line 6 POD® HD Pro Rack Multi-Effect Processor: A Quantum Leap Forward in Modeling
– Flagship POD multi-effect provides revolutionary HD modeling and total flexibility for professional guitarists –
Anaheim, CA – January 19, 2012 – Line 6 (room 212A/B) is showing the POD HD Pro rack-mountable multi-effect processor at Winter NAMM 2012. Featuring revolutionary Line 6 HD modeling technology, POD HD Pro delivers the highest-quality tones to performing and recording guitarists.
“As the flagship product of our new POD HD line, POD HD Pro is the best of the best,” remarked Elliot Chenault, product manager for Line 6 POD HD products. “It’s got all the features, connectivity, flexibility and tone that today’s professional guitarists and producers need.”
POD HD Pro is loaded with an arsenal of 22 HD guitar amp models and 22 HD guitar preamp-only models, which are perfect for driving a tube amp’s power section. HD models are a quantum leap forward in modeling quality, giving digital signal processing all the feel, dynamics and playability that makes guitarists passionate about great tube amps. Detailed amplifier behavior including single-ended class A tube stages, class AB push/pull interactions, power supply behavior and more are emulated with incredible nuance. The result is exceptional warmth, feel, sustain and articulation.
Over 100 M-class effects, which are descended from legendary Line 6 pedals DL4™ Delay Modeler (the storied “green stompbox”) and the M13®, M9® and M5® Stompbox Modelers, as well as eight new mic models and 16 new cab models also come stock for a variety of modern, vintage and boutique-inspired tones perfect for any pro player.
An extensive digital and analog I/O makes POD HD Pro flexible, powerful and ready for any studio or stage application. The AES/EBU out doubles as the L6 LINK™ jack which, when connected to a Line 6 DT-series tube amplifier, creates a boutique amp factory capable of producing a virtually unlimited variety of tones with boutique warmth and feel. There’s also a Variax Digital Input jack for connecting to a Line 6 James Tyler Variax® modeling guitar. No matter the environment, POD HD Pro fits seamlessly.
POD multi-effect processors have long been a cornerstone of professional studio and stage guitar rigs around the world, and POD HD Pro rack multi-effect is set to raise that standard even higher.
