The industry standard for direct recording in the studio, POD 2.0 delivers the tones heard on hit records everywhere thanks to its 32 amp models.

This uniquely shaped, fully programmable stereo desktop unit is designed to deliver a wide range of legendary amp tones and authentically recreate the sound of mic’d speaker cabinets. With POD, recording tonally mindblowing guitar tracks with full volume punch and “air” is now a hassle-free, instant reality without disturbing your neighbors, waking the kids or driving your significant other up the wall.

POD’s unprecedented direct tone is the result of Line 6’s breakthrough A.I.R. direct recording output – an acoustically integrated cabinet/speaker/microphone emulation technology.

Combined with the patented TubeTone digital modeling technology found in the revolutionary AX2TM 212 and Flextone Series Digital Guitar Amplifier Systems, as well as the acclaimed Amp Farm Plug In for Pro Tools TDM, POD offers recording musicians a deep, inspirational sonic palette. Guitarists familiar with the knob driven Flextone Series Combo Amplifiers will recognize the POD feature set of sixteen TubeTone Amp Models and sixteen pro quality digital effects setups arranged on separate knobs. With the recording environment in mind, POD offers more extensive programmability via MIDI-Adjustable parameters. The complete POD package includes a CD-ROM with editing software for both PC and Mac platforms.

Features:
  • 32 Customizable Amp Models
  • 16 Digital Effects
  • Stereo Balanced or Unbalanced 10 TRS outputs
  • Separate Stereo Headphone Output
  • 36 User Memory Locations
  • Chromatic Tuner
  • Cabinet Tuning Mode-Run POD directly to mixer or amp
  • EMagic SoundDiver PC/Mac software for MIDI features

Amps and Cabs
POD 2.0 is the answer. You get a wide variety of classic and modern guitar sounds with convenient, easy-to-use effects built right in. The revolutionary A.I.R. modeling accurately captures the tone and feel of speaker cabinets, microphones, and studio room characteristics for an amazing recorded sound direct to any recording setup or PA. Sounds like having a great amp mic'd by a great engineer in a great studio!

Effects
POD 2.0 comes with a built in set of effects that are tweaked to perfection.  This "best of" collection of effects makes searching for the perfect sounds ultra easy.  Multiple versions of the effects give you rack or stompbox versions, and the combination effects give you classic setups like Delay and Chorus simultaneously. There’s even a full time Reverb, Tap Tempo for getting your delay’s in time with the band, and an Effect Tweak knob for custom tailoring your effects.  Plus, you’ll never be out of tune because you’ll get a Chromatic Tuner with a silent mute function for tuning between songs

Ins and Outs
POD is equipped to handle today’s guitar recording needs with +4dBu balanced or -10dBV unbalanced 1/4" connectors.  MIDI lets you automate every move and the optional FBV™ generation foot controllers let you do it all with your feet.  POD 2.0 also comes with a high-power headphone output for silent jamming.

Input - Plug your guitar in here.

Phones - Plug in your headphones here for silent practicing.

Left & Right Output - These are balanced 1/4" TRS connectors, and ready to rock with pro +4 dBu balanced equipment. They will also work happily with unbalanced -10 dBV equipment and standard guitar cables.

A.I.R. Mode – If you want to plug POD into a guitar amp as “front end,” flip the A.I.R. Mode switch to AMP, and set your amp for a clean tone.  This defeats the speaker-microphone-room tone simulation of the A.I.R. processing. If you’re using POD in almost any other setup (plugging direct into a mixer, recorder, PA, power amplifier, etc.) you want the DIRECT position on the A.I.R. switch.

Foot Pedal Connector - POD 2.0 is now compatible with the entire line of current foot controllers including FBV Express and FBV Shortboard!

MIDI In & Out - Connect POD to your MIDI equipment to select channel memories or automate POD settings.

              It Works great! I use it for recording & live applications.
              The only drawback is that you have to have four hands to adjust the parameters.
              Once I got the computer connections, & downloaded "Sound Diver", programming it was a breeze!

              Comments about Line 6 POD 2.0 Guitar Effect Pedal:

              I bought the POD 2.0 when it first came out and have spent hundreds of hours using it both in my home studio as well as performing and have never had one problem with it. Very well made and dependable. I run all my guitars through it from electrics, acoustic electrics-even my classical which can produce some out of this world tones ala Monte Montgomery. The tonal pallete of the POD 2.0 coupled with easy set-up & changes on the fly via the long board foot controller & mic stand clamp makes it a true joy to use. I will keep this unit forever!
