If you've ever been frustrated trying to get great guitar tones running direct, either live or in the studio, and you want a wide variety of classic and modern guitar or bass tones with convenient to use effects built in - then any one of the POD family will deliver all of this and more.
Line 6's revolutionary A.I.R. Modeling accurately captures the tone and feel of speaker cabinets, microphones, and studio room characteristics for an amazing recorded sound on everything from the most prestigious pro studio setup to a multi-track cassette. Sounds like having a great amp mic'd by a great engineer in a great studio.
The "must have" direct recording tool for guitarist, POD becomes a family. Introducing POD Pro. The new POD Pro rack-mount package has enough connectivity for the most demanding recording professionals.
Both PODs for guitar feature 32 Amp Models, 16 Cab Models, Effects, & more, with A.I.R. direct outs for recording and live setups. POD Pro is the perfect POD for your rackmount system, and supports a slew of additional pro features. All POD family products feature:
Award winning Line 6 Amp Models that emulate an all-star collection of legendary amplifiers.
36 user memory locations so that you can create your own customized collection of killer sounds. Organize them to match your set list, your session needs, or any doggone thing you want. After all, it's YOUR POD!
Stereo Balanced or Unbalanced 10 TRS outputs, so you can plug it into anything from your home stereo to a really expensive mixing board.
Separate Stereo Headphone output to keep your neighbors (or your spouse, for that matter) from staging a counterattack when you're writing that first big hit in your apartment at 3am.
Chromatic Tuner, because playing out of tune isn't cool.
Cabinet Tuning Mode. The Amp/Direct switch allows POD to be optimized for different applications. Select Direct when running POD directly into a mixer or recorder. Select Amp when using POD as a tone-shaping front end for another amp. POD delivers several tuning modes for the Amp position, selectable at power-up. For example, by default, POD products for guitar expect to be plugged into the guitar input of an open-backed combo. Other tuning modes allow POD to be optimized for connection to the power amp input of a closed-back system, or into closed-back cabinets.
ToneTransfer Compatibility. Line 6's ToneTransfer Web Library, is constantly expanding. The sounds you collect transfer seamlessly between POD, POD Pro, and Flextone II series amps, so wherever you go, all your sounds can make the trip.
As if all this wasn't enough, we also include the POD Tools CD which contains:
Emagic™ SoundDiver™ software (PC/Mac) for expanded feature access via MIDI. You can get at additional effects parameters, do strange things with the wah functions and lots of other fun stuff..
