HD amp modeling: Sound and feel like never before
HD amp models defy the accepted standard. They feel, behave and interact with previously unachievable realism.
Creating these new HD amp models was no small feat. 15 years of amp modeling experience coupled with 3 years of new research and development delivered an entirely new amp modeling technology from that was built from the ground up. During that time, a collection of incredible amplifiers were selected and - with the help of some of the country's top tube amp experts - restored back to peak condition and performance. Each amplifier was modeled using this new technology and the results surpassed our wildest expectations.
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, warmth, feel, sustain and articulation for you to fall in love with.
Tube amp fanatics have long enthused that their favorite stacks and combos aren't merely "amps" but instruments themselves, with playability equal to that of the guitar plugged into them. HD modeling lifts the POD HD Pro experience to that same exalted level, capturing the genuine playability that great guitarists demand.

Unprecedented flexibility with speed and ease
Beyond the depth of the amp and effect models, POD HD Pro offers supreme flexibility to mix and match amps and pedals in multiple rigs can be saved as presets for instant recall.
Connect a Line 6 FBV MkII foot controller for instant access to your preset rigs of HD amp models, effects, cabs, mics and more. Use it as an expression pedal, turn effects on and off and even control the built-in looper.
Create parallel paths for parallel processing or creating two unique signal paths (each complete with its own amp and effect models) that can deliver the richest, sonically complex tones.
Where other multi-effects seem to require a degree in nuclear physics to access this kind of deep programmability, POD HD Pro makes it easy. Your entire signal chain is displayed in the LCD screen for easy access to every parameter - no deep-diving necessary. Simply select a model and drop it into the signal chain anywhere you choose.
Comprehensive connectivity for every professional rig
