POD® HD500 is the best-selling multi-effects floorboard*—and now POD HD500X gives you even more power to define your sound. It’s the ultimate tone palette, whether you want to re-create classics or go somewhere new. And thanks to HD technology, POD HD500X provides the depth, character and touch nuance to inspire your creativity in the studio or on stage. So if you’ve never experienced the flagship of the POD family, now’s the time to check out POD HD500X.

 

WORLD-CLASS HD AMPS

From vintage classics to modern powerhouses, each HD amp delivers incredible sonic depth, character and touch nuance to inspire your playing—and that’s just the beginning. Customize the tone and dynamic response of each HD amp with an extensive set of deep parameters including Sag, Bias, Bias Excursion, Hum and more.

 

100+ STUDIO AND STOMP EFFECTS

POD HD500X gives you over 100 studio and boutique stomp effects, so you can take your sound in any direction. Emulate classic signal chains with distortions, delays, mods, filters, reverbs and more, or discover entirely new sounds by mixing and matching up to eight simultaneous effects. You also get pro-grade, assignable footswitches and a built-in, die-cast expression pedal to control your effects in real time.

 

MORE PROCESSING POWER, MORE CREATIVITY
With unparalleled flexibility and more processing power than anything in its class, POD HD500X is built for tone creation. To start, it features dynamic DSP, so you have the freedom to stack the effects you want wherever you want them. And compared to its predecessor, POD HD500X lets you add even more effects to your signal chain. You can also mix and match HD amps, cabinets, mics and effects in virtually endless combinations. With 512 presets, you’ve got plenty of options for recalling your tones.

 


SCULPT SOUNDS WITH DUAL SIGNAL PATHS
Legendary guitar tones are often created with more than one signal path. POD HD500X lets you create these complex, rich tones without the setup headaches of traditional dual-amp rigs. You can route your guitar through two completely independent paths—each with its own HD amp and effects chain, of course—or process two signals at once using the 1/4” guitar, 1/4"" auxiliary or XLR mic inputs. So whether you want to configure elaborate signal chains for more traditional stereo amp setups, or create unique soundscapes, you've picked the right tool.

 

ASSIGNABLE FOOTSWITCHES AND RUGGED CONSTRUCTION
With POD HD500X, you get professional-grade footswitches with bright LED rings that you can see anywhere on stage. You can use them to enable or bypass amps and effects, or to select presets directly. If you want to get more creative, you can assign multiple amp and effects parameters to the expression pedal and morph between sounds—controlling up to 52 parameters in real time. The footswitches also control the built-in 48-second looper, an instrument unto itself. The bent-metal chassis and rugged construction make POD HD500X ideal for any stage.

 

FLEXIBLE I/O

POD HD500X provides all the connections you need for studio, stage and anywhere in between. You can plug in a mic to record vocals or acoustic instruments, track with your favorite HD amps, use the stereo FX loop to connect stompboxes and outboard effects, and much more. Connect to your computer via USB for multi-channel, studio-quality recording with your favorite DAW software—or tap into POD HD Edit, the free editor/librarian software that makes it easy to tweak and organize all your tones.

 

COMMAND CENTER FOR YOUR GUITAR EXPERIENCE

It doesn’t matter if you use a guitar amp, go straight to the PA or take advantage of a next-gen full-range guitar rig—POD HD500X is the ideal command center for any guitar setup. It’s a fully assignable MIDI controller, so you can use the footswitches and expression pedal to control all kinds of external hardware and software—and it gets even better when you use POD HD500X with other Line 6 gear.

Lots of bang for the buck Review by tom

its a great time to be a guitarist. This unit has so many features for the price making it a must have for your arsenal. I combine this with my JTV59 Variax, and the possibilities are to numerous to count.
Is each tone spot perfect? Of course not, but for that you would need 20 amps and 10 guitars which for most of us isn't an option. There are better units, but those cost 3 or 4 times as much, which for most isn't a realistic choice.

Excellent effects processor and preamp Review by Laura

I use the Line 6 HD 500 effects processor primarily for live use using the 4-cable method. I plug my guitar into the input of HD 500, and then I use compression, wah, stompbox distortion, and any other pre-amp effects before I send the signal out of the effects send into my Mesa Rectifier Recording Pre for pure tube tone. Then from I live outs I go back into the HD 500 into the effects return, and then my signal is further processed with noise gate, pitch, modulation, EQ, delay, and reverb effects. The HD 500 allows me to take advantage of stereo processing

Overall, the effects selection on the HD 500 is excellent. I would prefer deeper editing, but the parameters are sufficient enough for general use. I do miss a few of the effects from the X3 Live, like the square and other choruses, but all of the basic effects are covered. I'm very impressed with pitch effects. Tracking is dead on quick. Smart Harmony works very well, as does using the pitch bender like a Whammy pedal. I could even completely tune down several steps without any lag in the output of my playing. The wah pedals are all so very impressive. The Tron effect can be used like an auto wah. The basic phaser is also fantastic.

What I appreciate most about the HD 500 is the complete flexibility in creating the perfect patch. You can literally choose any effect you want and place it anywhere you want in the signal path. You can even create a stereo signal path in the preamp section. For example, you could have a phaser effect in the left channel and a synth effect in the right channel.

I have had some issues with noise using the four cable method, but a hum eliminator on the cable from the effects send remedied this issue.

Even though nothing quite compares to the sound of my Mesa Boogie preamp, the HD 500's modeled Mesa comes pretty darn close. If something went wrong with my Mesa preamp for show, I would be completely comfortable using the model amps on the HD 500. I also like the Blackface Lux for a clean sound and some of the Marshall models for a crunch sound.

As for construction, the HD 500 is a huge improvement from the X3 Live.

Overall, this is an amazing effects processor. I foresee myself using this for many, many years. (Posted on 6/26/2013)
A great processor for studio or stage Review by Les Benson

The new generation of DSP is far superior to even just a year or 2 ago. THis unit has endless variations and combinations on tap - all user programmable and editable. It has a 48 second looper and a multitude of inputs making this unit extremely flexible for the home/budget studio as well as on stage.
The HD500 is easy to use on its own, but with the included software you can really get a visual idea of how your signal chain is put together and see and hear how routing of different effects changes the overall sound.
This product is a great offering and I really feel it beats out others in this price range. (Posted on 7/24/2012)
