Line 6 POD HD500 overview

  • 1Description

The POD HD500X Guitar Multi-Effects Processor from Line 6 is a floorboard amp emulator and effects processor designed for use both live and in the studio. It has 30 amp models based on classic amplifiers and over 100 effects including dynamics, distortions, pitch/modulators, filters, EQs, delays, wah/volume, and reverbs. The amp models are tweakable down the cabinets they are played through and what mics are used. These settings, along with effects chains, can be saved in the 512 user presets available.

The POD HD500X has a variety of I/O options, allowing you to connect not just your guitar, but a microphone or auxiliary signal. To match the I/O, you also have access to a variety of signal path options, allowing you to run your guitar signal through two completely different amp setups, each with unique effects and processing, or send two signals to the same or separate signal paths.

You can connect the POD HD500X to the front of your amp or directly to a PA mixer allowing you to play shows without bringing your amplifier. Its USB port allows you to connect directly to your favorite DAW for recording use. Its L6 connector allows you to directly integrate the POD HD500X into Line 6's DT-series and StageSource loudspeakers for live use.

Processing Power
With flexibility and more processing power than anything in its predecessor, POD HD500X is built for tone creation. To start, it features dynamic DSP, so you have the freedom to stack the effects you want wherever you want them. And compared to its predecessor, POD HD500X lets you add even more effects to your signal chain. You can also mix and match HD amps, cabinets, mics and effects in virtually endless combinations. With 512 presets, you've got plenty of options for recalling your tones
Dual Signal Paths
Guitar tones are often created with more than one signal path. POD HD500X lets you create these tones without the setup headaches of traditional dual-amp rigs. You can route your guitar through two completely independent paths-each with its own HD amp and effects chain, or process two signals at once using the 1/4" guitar, 1/4" auxiliary or XLR mic inputs. So whether you want to configure elaborate signal chains for more traditional stereo amp setups, or create unique soundscapes, you've picked the right tool
Assignable Footswitches
With POD HD500X, you get footswitches with bright LED rings that you can see anywhere on stage. You can use them to enable or bypass amps and effects, or to select presets directly. If you want to get more creative, you can assign multiple amp and effects parameters to the expression pedal and morph between sounds - controlling up to 52 parameters in real time. The footswitches also control the built-in 48-second looper. The bent-metal chassis and rugged construction make POD HD500X ideal for any stage
Flexible I/O
POD HD500X provides all the connections you need for studio, stage and anywhere in between. You can plug in a mic to record vocals or acoustic instruments, track with your favorite HD amps, use the stereo FX loop to connect stompboxes and outboard effects, and much more. Connect to your computer via USB for multi-channel, studio-quality recording with your favorite DAW software-or tap into POD HD Edit, the free editor/librarian software that makes it easy to tweak and organize all your tones
