Description A multi-effects pedal with 16 high-def amp models, 100+ M-class effects, and plenty of I/O.

POD HD500 represents a giant leap forward for amp modeling. It is the only multi-effect pedal that boasts 16 brand-new, state-of-the-art Line 6 HD amp models, 100+ modern and vintage-styled M-class effects, and a 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. Line 6 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 a high-quality 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 POD HD500's 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.


POD HD500 includes 16 HD amp models based on:


Fender Twin Reverb
Hiwatt Custom 100 (DR103)
Supro S6616
Gibson EH-185
Fender Bassman
Fender Blackface Deluxe Reverb
Divided by 13 JRT 9/15
Dr. Z Route 66
Vox AC-15
Vox AC-30 (Top Boost)
Marshall J-45 MkII
Park 75
Marshall JCM-800 (2204)
Bogner Uberschall
Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier
ENGL Fireball 100


100+ M-class FX

Made famous by Line 6 M13 and M9 Stompbox Modelers, M-class FX have found their way into the hearts of many musicians. 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. You can also 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 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).


The engineer's behind POD HD500 made it easy to access its deep programmability. 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.


Edit and organize and all your sounds via computer with the included editor/librarian software (works on Mac and PC).


Built like a tank

POD HD500's cutting-edge technology is kept safe within a "bulletproof" bent sheet metal housing with heavy-duty metal footswitches and expression pedal. No injection-molded plastic boxes here—POD HD500 is ready to lap up years of road and stage abuse and keep you playing.

  1. Great Multi-FX Review by Guilherme
    Overall Rating

    I really love my HD500, I've been using for almost 2 years right now.

    The Amp simulations are great, the best you can get without buying an Axe-FX or a Kempler, that would be $2000 or more, so for it's price it's a great gear.

    In my opinion the Amp simulations are even better than the Boss GT-100, the FX are really great too, but Boss would usually have better FXs. Pitch shifter and fuzz is not very good with the HD500, but Tube screamer, reverb and delays are great.

    For some reason when i try to use my pedals with the FX Loop they won't sound good, specially fuzz and drives, I'll have to use with the normal guitar input. Also, If you don't own one of the Line 6 DT amps, the HD500 simulations may not sound so good depending on your amp (even at the amp FX loop return with cab sim disable).
    Even with these cons i would really recommend the hd500, you probably even want to use it without amp, direct to PA for live concert or with headphones for recording.

    I also use the Variax JTV-59 and the DT-25, this setup is awesome, it's the line 6 dream rig. (Posted on 4/8/2013)
