                The latest from Line 6 truly does it all as far as pedals are concerned. Featuring a multitude of overdrives, delays, choruses, distortions, wahs and volume controls, and a built in looper, this unit can cover all the bases for live and recording. Great for plugging directly into a board, you could even go without an amp if you have a competent sound man and monitor mixer.

                        Unlocks your creative potential! There is so much included in the sonic options of this board that it'll keep you busy just sampling on it for hours!

                        It will definitely take a little time to get used to using this board as an effective tool, but the HD500X is so much more than just a effects board. It doubles as a midi-controller and rig designer. It is super customizable and inspiring.

                        It is also a sleek and aesthetically pleasing design with a clean layout.
