POD HD DESKTOP DISCONTINUED?

Recommended Posts

Noticing the HD desktop is no longer available at most online retailers. Has this model been discontinued? Will it be replaced with something new?

It's been discontinued for awhile now - since around Christmas 2013, I think. Sweetwater was selling the rest of their stock for $200, but it looks like they're out now. As to whether there will be a new desktop model, I couldn't say. I think the popularity of the desktop has decreased as more people would probably just want the floor model for live use. If they want a unit where they can keep the processor in the backline, there's always the Pro version. Both of those can easily be recorded at home. I also think the Bean probably has competition from the modeling software packages out there.

Disappointing, The bean filled a niche, The pro is to big and bulky and expensive for a home studio, the floor board, the same but different real estate. let's hope they do a 1U version of whatever comes next.

I am hoping for another bean as well. I still like the POD/FBV combination.

I don't think its "officially" discontinued as its still listed on the site....

i also imagine you can find a new one with a little effort...

but i do think that Phil is right... been "unofficially" discontinued for a while.

I purchased one of the last ones from Sweetwater. I bought it to keep at work, since a few of us jam in the office every once in a while. But, I can see where the floor and rack models are probably more in demand these days, now that mobile POD and it's competitors are so easy to carry around in a phone.
