Line 6, Inc., the industry leader in modeling technology for music products, announces POD Studio family of powerful USB hardware interfaces that feature POD Farm plug-in, the next generation of POD tone, and a crucial bundle of more pro software, to bring pro tone to recording guitarists.
"There's a POD Studio perfect for every application," remarks David Dolan, Line 6 Product Marketing Manager. "And combined with POD Farm, our premium POD tone plug-in, each one will revolutionize the way guitarists record -- just like the original POD."
Each member of the POD Studio family features a rock-solid USB hardware interface, 44.1/48 kHz 16-/24-bit recording and plenty of other pro differences including lowest noise for recording guitar -- outperforming similar interfaces by 12 dB -- and exclusive Line 6 ToneDirect(TM) monitoring that virtually eliminates latency while recording with amp and effect modeling.
GX provides portable, no-nonsense recording with one 1/4-inch guitar input. UX1 features one 1/4-inch guitar input, a balanced XLR input with preamp and two 1/4-inch analog outputs. UX2 offers two 1/4-inch guitar inputs (one normal, one pad), two balanced XLR inputs with preamps and phantom power, S/PDIF digital output and a pair of assignable VU meters.
From sought-after vintage amps to modern studio standards and Line 6 originals, each POD Studio comes complete with POD Farm plug-in delivering over 50 immortal guitar and bass amps and cabs, 29 crucial studio and stompbox effects and 6 pro mic preamps in convenient Mac(R) AU/RTAS(R)/VST(R) and Windows(R) RTAS(R)/VST(R) formats. Its carousel-style interface and drag-and-drop signal flow are simple and intuitive. And, above all, it produces inspired, great sounding recordings. Plus, Line 6 FX Junkie Model Pack, adding another 30 effect models including synths, filters, delays, and more to POD Farm, is available as a free download from line6.com with purchase of POD Studio UX1, and POD Studio UX2.
Each POD Studio includes software for instant pro recording right out of the box. POD Studio GX includes Ableton(R) Live Lite 8-track recording software.
