Line 6 Releases Two Great New Recording Tools!

Pocket POD® exhibits all the celebrated features and pro tone that makes POD a standard in recording studios everywhere. Don’t be fooled by the smaller package, Pocket POD is packed with over 300 custom presets dialed in by some of today’s hottest rock stars like Maroon 5, P.O.D., 311, Hoobastank and many more.

Battery-powered and about the size of a tuner, Pocket POD is completely portable. Use it for effects in front of your amp, or just plug in headphones and practice anywhere, anytime.

Connect to any computer via USB, then download the free Vyzex software and “deep dive” into all your tone details to create your own custom tone, or manage your own personal tone library right on your desktop. Or visit CustomTone.com to download any of the 3,000 free presets created by guitarists from around the world.

  1. I’m still a bit on doubt, so it is not possible to record on the computer with the pocket pod alone, it is only possible to use the usb connection to download and workout the presets. And therefore, I need to buy the tone port gx to record on my computer, right?

    Demian.

  2. Yeah, you’ll need some USB interface. In the words of Line 6: “Pocket POD is a class compliant USB MIDI device. You will not be able to directly record over a USB connection”

    I suppose the main attraction of the Pocket Pod is just to have such a small, portable and cheap amp-modeling tool with such a variety of sounds, at your disposal anywhere, for gigs, practice etc.

  3. Many thanks for the quick response. Cheers.

    Demian.
