Welcome To The Future – The New Line 6 POD Studio Range
A dream collection of legendary guitar tones, perfect configurations of ins and outs, and the lowest noise for the cleanest, clearest guitar tracks are just a few of the advantages of recording with POD Studio. Consisting of one of three rock-solid USB-powered hardware interfaces and POD Farm, the premium tone plug-in, POD Studio represents the future of guitar recording.
POD Farm: The Premium Tone Plug-In
From dark and smoky American combos to blazing, gain-crazed English stacks, POD Farm plug-in features the sounds of essential vintage classics and must-have modern monsters necessary for a pro-sounding recording. It includes 18 immortal guitar amps, 24 guitar cabs, 5 bass amps and 5 bass cabs, 29 sought-after stompbox and studio effects and 6 crucial mic preamps, all painstakingly modeled after historic must-have gear. Each model is fully adjustable and offers total tweakability. And hundreds of presets provide record-ready sounds in an instant.
POD Farm is Mac® AU/RTAS®/VST® and Windows® RTAS®/VST® compatible for seamless integration with all major recording software applications.
At 120 dB, POD Studio interfaces ensure the lowest noise for recording guitar. That’s 12dB more than similar interfaces. Crisper, cleaner signals free of unwanted noise provide the most colorful guitar tracks and the best recordings.
Latency: Mind The Gap
Each POD Studio interface features exclusive Line 6 ToneDirect™ monitoring that reduces latency to an inaudible, infinitesimal amount. Latency, the delay caused by the time it takes your guitar signal to travel through your interface, your computer’s processor, your plug-in software and back to your interface, is famous for crippling recording sessions and sending countless guitarists off the deep end. This is a huge advantage POD Studio has over similar recording interfaces.
Processing the signal at the source (the interface) frees your CPU to run other applications and delivering other POD Studio benefits.
At The Crossroads
When recording with other interfaces, guitarists are forced to make counter-productive compromises like settling on a less-than-perfect tone, or recording with a dry signal in order to chose a tone later. POD Studio breaks guitarists free of these and other challenges allowing for a fully processed POD® tone to be monitored while a dry signal is recorded. Never again will sacrificing tone or feel will be tolerated.
A Family Affair
The POD Studio family features four intuitive hardware interfaces. Each one of the distinct designs provides its own essential benefits while delivering the family advantages including the lowest noise for recording guitar and ToneDirect™ monitoring.
