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 inch guitar, 1/4 inch 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.

Connect a James Tyler Variax guitar and DT amp or StageSource speaker to form the Line 6 Dream Rig, the only system that can instantly become virtually any rig. With the press of a single POD HD500X footswitch, you can recall up to 512 totally different rigs, with changes to preamp type, power amp configuration, guitar type, polyphonic alt-tuning, effects chain and more.

With a StageSource L2m, you’ve got a cutting-edge, full-range, flat-response guitar system that delivers consistent tone at any volume, from studio to rehearsal, to the gig.

    I've used line 6 for years and this pedal does it all. I'm using it with my EVH 5150 III and it is amazing! There is hundreds of free tones to download for free as well on line 6 website. This effects board rocks!

    Exactly what I expected
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Upgraded from HD400. 500 is a great unit. Takes some time to set it up and get the sounds you want but once you learn to tweak this pedal can't be beat!!

    So amazing
    What is your opinion of this product?
    It's tough and frustrating at first, but take your time analyzing all of the presets and you'll quickly get it down. I love this thing and I'm glad I bought it!

    Awesome!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This thing is awesome and sounds great. It was a little difficult at first to program but after I got the hang of it it was easy. It's similar in programming to my POD X3 but different and much more flexible. On the X3 I was locked into having only 1 modulation effect per patch but with this I can have chorus, flange and phaser models in the patch and turn them on and off at random just like with a string of pedals. My TC Electronic GMAJOR FX processor is the same way you can only have one modulation effect in a patch. I'll be using this with my amp rig also since you can bypass the amp and cab models and only use fx. Everything I need is in this unit noise gate, compression, chorus, flanger, phaser, reverb, delay,volume pedal, wah, whammy effects and harmonies with the intelligent pitch fx. And much more. Great piece of gear and well worth it.

    Great if you're patient
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Lots of presets, but if you are like me, you'll only like a few depending on your personal preferences. Not the most user friendly device. It isn't overly hard to use, but just know you will have to be patient initially as it is a fairly complicated tool. I had a lot of fun with this and my first stack, which was a solid state Crate, so this really gave me some options tone-wise that I desperately needed.Haha It is built like a tank and I have yet to have an issue with mine. I don't use digital effects much anymore now that I have sexier amps,but I still like to drag this out for fun every now and then. A reasonably cheap option if you play a lot of covers and need access to many different tones.

    BASS GUITAR PLAYERS: THIS THING WORKS FOR US!!!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Bought to replace 10 year old BassPODXTLive after 600+ shows. Dumped in the bass pack to have the SVT as the XTLive did that WHEN SET LIKE I set my 1970's one.The SVT sim has normal and bright plus the 8x10,both are close(used an SVT for over a decade in the 70s/80s) with the bright one "feeling" like a tube amp when set correctly. Amazing to edit on PC while USB'ed,run 2 amps/sounds, etc. Presets are mostly blah although about 10 of them were kept to tweak for bass. The SOLO guitar amp sounds great on bass for clean tones,OCTAVER allows a 4 string to be a 5 string,MIC sims for cabs include the bass fav Sennheiser 421 and it works. Building or tweaking patches is MUCH easier after dealing with the XTLive editing for years. CONS:handle on top is too small to use lifting the unit Display is hard to see on some stages/lighting XLR outs would be more useful with ground lift option for going to FOH

    Great product
    What is your opinion of this product?
    As far as amp modelers go, this one has a steep learning curve. Once you actually figure everything out and get used to it, you can get some great tones. I had a hard time getting my personal patches to stay in the pod memory when it works sync with line 6-monkey. It is quite useful on stage.

    as advertized but not for everyone
    What is your opinion of this product?
    solid unit and great sounds feel. but hard to get sweet presets.I would recommend if your starting form scratch.for me, I have been playing pod xt live and have my go to sounds/presets/patches.so this was going to replace it until I discovered that I was emulating my existing xt live patches.seemed silly.I was happy with my xt live and the differences were not that noticeable to me. just takes a real long time to create sweet patches
