Are you ready for this??? Of course you are - you asked for it! Here's the thing we've all been waiting for: an amp emulator that (gasp) actually behaves just like the amps it emulates. Take that in for a moment. We're not just talking about the sound of the amps, the Line 6 POD HD500 actually responds to your guitar's volume, playing style, your pickups, your signal path, etc, exactly like the amps it sounds like. How does the POD HD500 do it? No clue. We know it has something to do with a modeling engine that uses something like 10 times the info and way more variables then regular modelers, but that's where it all just becomes technobabble. The important thing is that you've never heard phenomenal amp modeling till you've plugged into a Line 6 POD HD.
From the Manufacturer
POD HD500 represents a giant leap forward for amp modeling. It is the only multi-effect pedal to boast 16 state-of-the-art Line 6 HD amp models, 100+ modern and vintage-styled M-class effects, and a super-comprehensive digital and analog I/O.
HD amp modeling: sound and feel like never before
HD amp models defy the accepted standard. They feel, behave, and interact with previously unachievable realism.
Creating these new HD amp models was no small feat. We mixed 15 years of amp modeling experience with 3 years of new research and development to build an entirely new amp modeling technology from the ground up. During that time, we hunted down 16 incredible amplifiers and – with the help of LA’s top tube amp experts – restored each one back to peak condition. The new modeling technology uses 10-times more amplifier information than before, including single-ended class A tube stages, class AB push/pull interactions, power supply behavior, and more. The result is unprecedented, warmth, feel, sustain, and articulation for you to fall in love with.
Tube amp fanatics have long enthused that their favorite stacks and combos aren’t merely “amps,” but instruments themselves, with playability equal to that of the guitar plugged into them. New HD modeling takes the POD HD experience to that same exalted level, capturing the genuine playability that great guitarists demand.
Your amp collection—now in HD!
On the menu is a collection of freshly modeled amps, many of which are brand-new to POD, and all of which are essential for performing guitarists who require a wide variety of tones in one streamlined, multi-FX-sized package.

100+ M-class FX
Made famous by Line 6 M13 and M9 Stompbox Modelers, M-class FX are the new stage-standards. POD HD500 features a whopping 100+ M-class effects to craft your sound. With this wide tonal palette to play with, you can sound like anyone under the sun… or no one but you. Use up to 8 FX at once.
19 delays (including cool tube and solid-state tape echoes)
23 modulations (including both blackface-style opto and brownface bias-modulating tremolo, phasers, choruses, and rotary speakers)
17 distortions (classic stompbox distortion, to vintage fuzz, to thick metal chunk)
12 compressors and EQs (including stomp comps and studio tube compression)
26 filters (including wahs and several exclusive custom filters)
12 reverbs (from surfy springs, to studio plates, to cutting-edge digital room sounds)
The power of this collection is truly mind-boggling. In addition to these classic sounds themselves, POD HD500 functions as a fully featured looping, pitch shifting, and harmonizing machine. Ready to start creating? This rig could keep you going for a lifetime.
Unprecedented flexibility—stunning simplicity
Beyond the mere depth of the amp and FX models, POD HD500 offers supreme flexibility to mix and match amps and pedals in multiple pre-set rigs, attainable at the stomp of a switch.
Scale from an instantly routable signal chain up to the flexibility of a MIDI switching system and beyond, (even compiling several rigs within the POD HD500’s memory, storing a full rig per “slot” with total flexibility and direct access).
And where other manufacturers seem to require a degree in nuclear physics to access this kind of deep programmability, we’ve made it easy. Smart FX make it a snap to quickly dial in your tone, and the free, easy to use editor/librarian software supports your deepest, darkest tonal explorations. POD HD500 was designed by guitarists for guitarists.
Comprehensive connectivity for live and studio use
Put simply, POD HD500 connects to just about anything and everything – analog or digital, balanced or unbalanced, for amplification or recording.
A snapshot of the back panel shows 1/4” and XLR outputs (mono/stereo), USB, MIDI in and out/thru, S/PDIF out, FX loop (mono/stereo), guitar and mic aux ins with mic level, Variax® connection, expression pedal input and a L6 LINK jack for seamless integration with Line 6 DT50™ tube amplifiers.
