Full analog and digital I/O.
A comprehensive feature set is nothing without the connectivity to make it all work seamlessly in whatever environment the gig demands. To that end, the POD HD Pro rack multi-effect is equipped with all conceivable digital and analog I/O options. The front panel includes a 1/4-inch guitar input with pad and an XLR mic input with pad, high-pass filter, 48V phantom power and level control. The back panel provides stereo 1/4-inch and balanced XLR outputs with a 1/4-inch Dry Out for unprocessed guitar signal; MIDI in and out/thru; S/PDIF in and out and AES/EBU in and out for 24-bit digital connections. (The AES/EBU out doubles as the powerful L6 LINK™ connection.) There’s also a Variax™ VDI input for connection to Variax modeling guitars, a USB jack and much more. And of course there’s a 1/4-inch stereo headphones jack for silent jamming.
Integration on stage and in the studio.
Whether you use your POD HD Pro live or in the studio, or both, you’ll find a range of thoughtful and creative I/O options to help you maximize your rig. Bring favorite old analog stompboxes or stereo rack effects into the chain with the stereo FX Send/Returns with Line/Stomp level switch. Hook up an optional Line 6 FBV™ foot controller for optimum on-the-fly flexibility. Go straight to into your favorite DAW for recording or processing via the dedicated USB output or AES/EBU in/out.
L6 LINK™ and DT-series amplifiers.
In addition to doubling as an AES/EBU digital out, the L6 LINK XLR jack lets you directly connect to the DT series of Line 6 amplifiers, which are the perfect partners for POD HD Pro. On their own, DT amplifiers are like four boutique amps in one. But when DT amps and POD HD Pro connect, they seamless integrate to become a boutique amp factory. The selection of a POD PHD Pro preset automatically optimizes the analog components to best suit that tone. And that’s just the beginning…
