Line 6 Pod HD Pro
Line 6, which is known for it's experience with guitar amp modeling technology, have released a new member of the Pod HD Family of effects - the Pod HD Pro.
Just like it's floor based Pod HD brothers, the Pod HD Pro utilizes Line 6's famous High Definition Amp and Effects Modeling. Being a Line 6 Pod HD400 user myself, I have long since sold most of my analog pedals - in favor of a solid, easy to set up, mobile multi-effects unit, where in bringing heavy tube amps and giant pedal boards is no longer necessary.
The HD series features 22 Amp models ranging from clean to overdriven, up to high gain metal tones. You can also choose to use the Pre-Amp only mode so you can still drive your tube amps. The 22 amp models were based on the following:
Fender Twin Reverb, Hiwatt Custom 100 (DR103), Supro S6616, Gibson EH-185, Fender Bassman, Fender Blackface Deluxe Reverb, Divided by 13 JRT 9/15, Dr. Z Route 66, Vox AC-15, Vox AC-30 (Top Boost), Marshall JTM-45 MkII, Park 75, Marshall JCM-800 (2204), Bogner Uberschall, Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier and last but not the least, the ENGL Fireball 100
The Pod HD Pro also carries 100+ "M-class" Line 6 modeling effects. You get 19 Digital Delays, 23 Modulation Effects, 17 Distortions, 12 Compressors and EQ, 26 Filters, 12 Reverbs. Up to 8 effects can be used simultaneously with flexible chain positioning. You can put an effect anywhere in the chain.
The Pod HD Pro also carries with it 16 speaker cabinets and 8 new mic models.
What sets the Pod HD Pro apart from it's Pod HD brothers is it's extensive analog and digital input/output interfaces. It will be able to cater to professional needs - whether live or in a recording studio. The Pod HD Pro is after all the flagship POD.
I saw the Line 6 Pod HD Pro available at an online store for 629.99 Euro. Go to Line6.com for more information regarding the new Line 6 Product.
The Pod HD Pro is compatible with Line 6's DT-50 Amplifiers.
