Now Available: Free v2.1 Firmware Update for POD HD500, POD HD Pro and POD HD
Experience incredible new tones and revolutionary performance options.
Now available, the v2.1 firmware update expands the sonic palette of POD® HD500, POD HD Pro and POD HD multi-effect processors with five new HD guitar amps, bringing the total HD amp count to 30. The update also provides enhanced functionality when you pair POD HD500 or POD HD Pro with StageSource™ loudspeakers.
Five New HD Guitar Amps
With v2.1 firmware, you get three stunning new HD amps based on* the distinctive clean, crunch and overdrive tones of the beastly Soldano® SLO100 amp. You’ll experience the refined cleans and scorching leads that have made SLO-100 one of the most coveted premium amps of the modern era.
To round out the POD family’s impressive high-gain amp collection, the update also adds Line 6 Doom and Epic—two blistering originals custom-designed by Line 6’s in-house tonesmiths.**
Enhanced Functionality with StageSource Loudspeakers
When you connect your POD HD500 or HD Pro to StageSource loudspeakers via L6 LINK™, you get amazing performance options that go beyond what’s possible with any other loudspeaker.
You can instantly recall StageSource Smart Speaker modes via POD HD presets, making StageSource and POD HD500 or HD Pro the ultimate integrated FRFR (Full Range Flat Response) guitar system. You can switch from a full-range acoustic sound for the verse to a dialed-in 2 x 12” guitar cabinet for the chorus—with just the press of a footswitch. You can also change to Keyboard mode for dramatic guitar synth soundscapes, and much more. Whether you’re playing at low volume or high decibel levels, the flat frequency response means your tones will translate to your audience exactly the way you heard them in the studio.
Virtual Tilt-back technology aims the sound upward when you place StageSource on the stage. You can add multiple StageSource speakers via L6 LINK for stereo effects configuration, wet/dry or wet/dry/wet setups, and more.
