Powerful processing and modeling capabilities
The more powerful CPU delivers improved performance and processing power to the Line 6 POD HD500X. You'll love the world-class selection of HD amp models that range from California cleans to classic crunch, vibey boutique warmth, modern high gain, and more. Once you dive into the POD HD500X, either from the front panel or the free software editor, you can build your own custom amp rigs complete with pedalboard.
Backlit switches and a brighter LCD screen make it easier than ever to see what preset and effects you have selected. Add the POD HD500X to a Line 6 Variax and StageSource L2t powered speaker and you have a complete Dream Rig that will deliver any tone you can think up.
Serious effects for serious sound
The POD HD500X isn't just an amp modeler — it's a full-on multi-effect masterpiece that's equally at home onstage as it is in the studio. An arsenal of over 100 of Line 6's M-class effects round out the POD HD500X's tone engine, providing you with everything from glassy choruses, rich reverb, dazzling delays, and the kind of stompbox distortions that crank up the heat.
You also get other invaluable processors, including EQs and compression to polish out your sound. Create your ideal sound by using up to eight effects simultaneously in any order you want. Once you have your sound set, save it in one of 512 custom preset locations. A 48-second looper and a built-in expression pedal are real gems, too.
Built tough for touring and smart for the studio
Designed for professional touring use, the Line 6 POD HD500X is built to take a beating. A bent sheet-metal chassis, backlit metal footswitches, and a rugged expression pedal all keep your POD HD500 running night after night. And you'll love the POD HD500X in the studio, too, where its digital outputs allow it to integrate right into your recording rig.
