FREE v1.3 UPDATE FOR ALL POD HD MULTI-EFFECTS

Posted on May 13, 2011 by Joe Stachowiak There have been 0 comments

Line 6 POD HD500Power-boost your POD® HD multi-effect with an additional six HD amp models and five amp parameters – all for free in firmware update v1.3.To get v1.3 just connect your POD HD via USB to your computer, run Line 6 Monkey™ Intelligent Updater and follow the instructions.

Firmware update v1.3 includes six HD amp models based on channels from three classic American combos (the “Vibrato” channel of a Fender® Deluxe Reverb®, the “Vibrato” channel of a Fender® Twin Reverb® and the “Bright” channel of a Fender® Bassman®), two British half stacks (the “Normal” channel of a Park 75 and the “Normal” channel of a Marshall® JTM-45 MkII) and a high-gain Line 6 original.

Five additional, fully adjustable amp parameters don each new HD amp model (and will be added to the HD amp models you already have). Further customise essential aspects of tube amp feel and behavior with Sag, Hum, Bias, Bias Excursion and Master Volume.

Meet the new HD amp models:

Blackface ‘Lux VIB
The “Vibrato” channel rounds out the HD model based on the classic combo that’s considered by many to be the ultimate studio amp: Fender® Deluxe Reverb®.

Blackface Double VIB
Fender® Twin Reverb® is an all-time classic of biting twang and shimmering clean tones. This model is based on a Fender® Twin Reverb® “Vibrato” channel, which is a separate preamp circuit with clipping characteristics that are different than the “Normal” channel due to an additional 12AX7 tube stage.

Tweed B-Man BRT
Based on a Fender® Bassman®, the amp that started it all – instant rock and roll tone. This model is based on the amp’s “Bright” channel, which provides a different voicing from the “Normal” channel by utilizing the second half of the first preamp tube. (The “Normal” channel uses the first half only). High frequencies are increased due to the addition of a bright cap across the volume knob.

Brit J-45 NRM
This model is based on a Marshall® JTM-45 MkII, which marked the beginning of the distinctively bright and crunchy sound that Marshall amps are known for. The “Normal” channel is adept at big, bold clean tones.

Brit P-75 NRM
Based on the “Normal” channel of a Park 75, a Jim Marshall-designed amp that enjoys cult status for its powerful Plexi-style tones. The “Normal” channel delivers a slightly darker tone than the “Bright” channel, a model of which already appears in POD HD.

Line 6 Elektrik
A face-melting, soul-weeping Line 6 original with high-gain capacity, interactive presence and mid-range controls. Careful, this might hurt a little…
