The Most Powerful POD Ever!

Loaded with Sweetwater-exclusive Presets

The new Line 6 POD HD Pro X gives you everything you'd expect from a POD, and much more! With an upgraded CPU that easily handles multiple memory-heavy effects, the POD HD Pro X has the extra horsepower you need for even the most effects-laden presets. It also gives you 100+ premium effects, 16 different cabinet models, and even eight microphone models. Plus, the POD HD Pro X's improved display provides instant visual feedback. It's a next-generation POD with tons of power!

  • All your dream amps — and then some!

    When it comes to tone, the POD is legendary. And with the stunning Pod HD Pro X the best keeps getting better!

    This rackmountable powerhouse packs 22 astounding amps — modeled to perfection, to give you every nuance and detail of the originals — into an ultra-portable, easy-to-use unit. Plug into the Pod HD Pro X, and you're plugging into fantastic-sounding models inspired by Fender, Marshall, Bogner, Vox, and several others — and you're hearing them in HD quality. You can even disable the power-amp portions of many amp models and pair their preamp sections with your physical amp's power section.

  • Effects, cabinets, and mic models!

    Line 6 didn't just fill the Pod HD Pro X with all-star amps. You also get an astounding 100+ premium effects, 16 different cabinet models, and even eight microphone models. That's right. You can plug in your favorite mic and and use the Pod HD Pro X as a studio-quality interface!

  • Blend two rigs together at the same time!

    Love two-amp guitar rigs? Line 6 lets you build your own, right inside the Pod HD Pro X! You can actually create two independent amp and effects signal chains and blend them to run them into one amplifier — or route them out of the Pod HD Pro X's 1/4" and XLR outputs in true stereo. You'll sound bigger and better than ever, onstage or in the studio.

  • All the analog connections you need!

    Although it's incredibly simple to use, the Pod HD Pro X comes fully equipped with all the connectivity you need for live or studio work. Plug your guitar in and run an output to your amp; you're ready to rock! A stereo effects send/return lets you add your own rack effects or pedals to the mix. Or use the Pod HD Pro X's balanced outputs and inject your Pod HD Pro X's signal straight into a live or studio mixer.

  • Connect directly to your DAW!

    Recording great guitar tones and more has never been easier, thanks to the Pod HD Pro X's dedicated USB output S/PDIF jacks and AES/EBU connections. You don't have to bother with space-hogging amps and expensive mics; just plug right into your DAW, and it's as if you've set up a roomful of iconic amps, cabs, effects — miked up and ready to go. The AES/EBU output jack also doubles as a link XLR jack, which lets you connect directly to Line 6's DT Series amps. Do you already have a Line 6 Variax guitar? Well you'll love the dedicated Variax input.

Pretty Epic

I want to start off this review with the fact that this product swept me off my feet..I have owned a Line 6 POD product previously and I sold it because it just didn't do it for me. After much thought and looking up reviews and everything else on the Line 6 POD HD Pro X I decided to go ahead and purchase it. I get the package, set it up and turn it ON.... I cant keep my hands off of it. This one unit does it pretty much all..if you can't find or create the tones you desire on this, pack you gear up and put it in your closet lol. I also want to add to this review that the customer service at Sweetwater is by far the BEST and Easiest I have ever used...They help you find the product that suits your needs and budget and they follow up with you on your purchase to see if you need any help with it. I even got some candy with my purchase lol

Great addition to the Studio.

Love this unit. Great addition to my home studio. I use it for Bass and my guitarist loves it and is using it for recording. I use the HD500X for live shows so my bass sound is close to the sound on our original material. Added all the available packs to it and increased my guitar and bass options. Great Unit.

Nothing Compares

I purchased the POD HD PRO when it came out a couple of years ago and was blown away by how much you get for the price. I just upgraded to this Pro X model and again line 6 just kills it. I have recorded with the Fractal Axe FX and this POD HD Pro is better for a third of the price. Super clean and powerful. Great unit for live and recording situations

POD HD Pro X -- The first, second and third greatest piece of equipment you'll ever own

I've used Line 6 equipment for many (15+) years: POD XT Pro, JTV-89... Thus, I had huge expectations for the HD Pro X. Every expectation I had was simply destroyed with not more than a whimper! This POD is just simply the greatest, funnest piece of equipment I have purchased in a long time, perhaps ever. Not only can you have "fun" with ridiculously versatile presets that make sounds I've never heard come from a guitar (getting realistic sounding organs, synthesizers, etc.), but most importantly: The serious effects and models are SERIOUSLY amazing, versatile and these Line 6 tones sound better than they ever have. All too often I have heard the naysayers rant about the "Tones of Tubes." Granted, it just doesn't get any better when you break out your favorite tube amp (being generic on purpose), adding the kind of warmth to your guitar tone rivaled only by the best electric blanket worn in sub-zero temperatures. But in every sincerity possible, when you dial in your tone in a POD HD Pro X, you'll forget about that tube amp like you'd lose the electric blanket in the wake of a roaring bonfire. Use that with a JTV Variax and you're going nuclear! The possibilities are endless, the sounds are amazing, the ease of use is amazing and that just scratches the surface.

Let me start off by saying it sounds great. The only reason I wouldn't give it a 5 star rating is due to if your new to pedals and setting up tones it will take you some time. Other then that it's well worth the money. I've owned previous line 6 products such as the pod 2.0, pod x3, the bognar tubed amp, and now this. Line 6 always has great products but this is perfect for touring and studio. If your into metal I'd suggest getting this over the Axe fx mainly because of the price difference. Quality of sound is very similar once you tweak the tone to your liking. If your new to developing tones. Go on to line 6's website and download some tones that people uploaded. Get those and tweak those around for a faster setup on what your trying to accomplish. Alao, if you want excellent service. Call Sweetwater up and use extension 1390 for Ryan Wiltermood. He's been helping me for years and has delivered exceptional customer service. This is the first time I've reviewed a product on Sweetwater but thought it was time to praise not only this product but the customer care that came with it.
