The POD HD500 from Line 6 is a multi-effect pedal that boast 16 state-of-the-art Line 6 HD amplifier models, more than 100 modern and vintage-styled M-class effects, and a comprehensive set of digital and analog I/O. The HD modeling captures the genuine playability that guitarists demand.

Based on new technology, the models use 10-times more amplifier information than before, including single-ended Class A tube stages, Class AB push/pull interactions, power supply behavior, and more. The result is unprecedented, warmth, feel, sustain and articulation.

Up to eight of the over 100 M-class effects can be used simultaneously. The unit offers flexibility to mix and match amplifiers and pedals in multiple preset rigs, recallable at the stomp of a switch. Additionally, the POD HD500 functions as a fully featured looping, pitch shifting and harmonizing machine. The unit also allows for "Dual Tone" operation, where the signal can be routed through two different chains of models.

The included editor/librarian software is easy to use, making it a snap to quickly dial in a desired tone. Comprehensive connectivity makes the pedalboard equally suitable for live and studio use. The POD HD500 can connect to just about anything - analog or digital, balanced or unbalanced, for amplification or recording.

Stereo send and return jacks are available for adding additional external effects. A microphone input with trim is included, as is MIDI I/O, a 1/4" auxiliary input, Variax digital in, and an RCA coaxial S/PDIF digital output.

Finally, the unit is built like a tank with bent sheet metal housing and heavy-duty metal footswitches and expression pedal. No injection-molded plastic boxes here - the POD HD500 is ready to lap up years of road and stage abuse.
