The best just got better! One of the most popular guitar multi-effects rack units in the world, from undoubtedly the biggest multi-effects family of products, the POD HD Pro X once again takes Line 6 to the cutting edge of guitar effects and amp simulation with more flexible tone-sculpting tools, more powerful DSP and a whole host of integration options!
So lets start with the fundamental: tone. The POD HD Pro X builds on the legacy of the whole POD series with advanced high definition amp models, giving you access to a plethora of classic vintage and modern amps not to mention over 100 rack/stombox emulations!
If you haven't got the space, time or money to kit your studio out with dozens of vintage amps and boutique stompboxes yet want to nail any guitar tone that comes to mind with one intuitive multi-effects rack, then the POD HD Pro X is exactly what your studio needs!
Like all its POD Pro predecessors the HD Pro X has outstanding integration with all the ins and outs you could possibly need to set it up with whatever else you're using. For instance plug in a JTV Variax with Variaxlink and enjoy unprecedented control over your whole single chain from guitar through effects to amp! Or link with a StageSource L2m for the most flexible full range live rig ever! There's a dry output too so you link your signal back into a real amp or a DI box or whatever you need to nail the tone you're after!

- The most powerful combination of dynamic DSP and flexible routing options in its class, so you can define your sound
- Professional studio interface with comprehensive I/O
- The ideal centerpiece for any guitar setup including the Line 6 Dream Rig—the only system that can be virtually any rig
WORLD-CLASS HD AMPS
From vintage classics to modern powerhouses, each HD amp delivers incredible sonic depth, character and touch nuance to inspire your playing—and that’s just the beginning. Customize the tone and dynamic response of each HD amp with an extensive set of deep parameters including Sag, Bias, Bias Excursion, Hum and more.
100+ STUDIO AND STOMP EFFECTS
POD HD Pro X gives you over 100 studio and boutique stomp effects, so you can take your sound in any direction. Emulate classic signal chains with distortions, delays, mods, filters, reverbs and more, or discover entirely new sounds by mixing and matching up to eight simultaneous effects. For hands-free control over preset switching, effects, volume and looper functions, simply connect a Line 6 FBV Shortboard MkII foot controller to your POD HD Pro X.
MORE PROCESSING POWER, MORE CREATIVITY
With unparalleled flexibility and more processing power than anything in its class, POD HD Pro X 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 HD Pro X 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.
SCULPT SOUNDS WITH DUAL SIGNAL PATHS
Legendary guitar tones are often created with more than one signal path. POD HD Pro X lets you create these complex, rich 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, of course—or process two signals at once using the 1/4” guitar, 1/4" auxiliary, XLR mic, stereo line, S/PDIF or AES/EBU 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.
FLEXIBLE I/O FOR RECORDING WITH ANY DAW
POD HD Pro X 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 studio-quality recording with your favorite DAW software—or tap into POD HD Pro X Edit, the free editor/librarian software that makes it easy to tweak and organize all your tones.
CENTERPIECE OF YOUR GUITAR RIG
It doesn’t matter if you use a guitar amp, go straight to the PA or take advantage of a next-gen full-range guitar rig—POD HD Pro X is the ideal centerpiece for any guitar setup. It’s got a full complement of I/O, so you can incorporate virtually any combination of vintage and modern equipment into your rig—and it gets even better when you use POD HD Pro X with other Line 6 gear.
Connect a James Tyler® Variax® guitar and DT amp or StageSource® speaker to form the Line 6 Dream Rig—the only system that can instantly become virtually any rig. With a single POD HD Pro X preset change, you can recall up to 512 totally different rigs—with changes to preamp type, power amp configuration, guitar type, polyphonic alt-tuning, effects chain and more.
