MORE POWER TO CREATE
POD® HD500X is the ultimate tone palette for players who want to define their sound on their own terms. Sure, POD® HD500X has a world-class collection of amps and effects, but it isn’t just about sounding like the classics—it’s also about sounding unlike anything else. That’s just one reason why POD is the source of tones heard on hundreds of hit records—and counting.
Now POD® HD500X has even more DSP power to give you new levels of control when you’re creating your sounds. And thanks to HD technology, POD HD500X provides the sonic depth, character and touch nuance that helps you play and sound better than ever before.
- World-class collection of HD amps gives you unmatched depth and touch response
- Dynamic DSP and flexible routing options let you create unique sounds
- Assignable, pro-grade, backlit footswitches for at-a-glance operation
- The command center for any guitar setup including the Line 6 Dream Rig—the only system that can be virtually any rig
WORLD-CLASS HD AMPSFrom 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 EFFECTSPOD 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 CREATIVITYWith unparalleled flexibility and more processing power than anything in its class, POD HD500X lets you create the sounds you’re seeking. To start, POD provides dynamic DSP, so you can stack the effects you want wherever you want them. You can also mix and match HD amps, cabinets, mics and effects to create new sounds or dial in the tones of your favorite guitarists. With 512 presets, you’ve got virtually endless options for recalling your tones.
SCULPT SOUNDS WITH DUAL SIGNAL PATHSLegendary 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 by 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 CONSTRUCTIONWith POD HD500X, you get professional-grade footswitches with bright LED rings for at-a-glance operation. 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 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 FOR RECORDING WITH ANY DAWPOD 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 EXPERIENCEIt 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 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 basically used 4 user defined presets, each with up to four effects I can turn on or off. #1 is a clean twin: Efffect 1 is chorus, Effect 2 is tremelo, Effect 3 is clean boost, effect 4 is slap echo and pedal is wah. #2 is acoustic: Effect 1 is chorus and Effect 2 is a 12 string sim using the octive effect. #3 is crunch: Effect 3 is boost and the amount of distortion is controlled by the pedal. #4 is distortion: Effect 1 is chorus, Effect 3 is boost and pedal controls amount of distortion.
It takes a while to learn how to tweek the parameters to one's liking. I have owned a number of Line 6 amps, pedals and variax guitars before so I had a head start. There are many usable presets in the unit. I do feel that the presets are very heavly into high gain settings, which are not what I use. However, there were enough clean and acoustic settings for me find ones I liked that I then modified further. The manual that comes with it is not as thorouhg as it could be and I download the complete manual from the Line 6 website. Because of the manual, I knock off 1/2 a star.
The computer interface makes it really easy to use.

Preset effects are decent
Software is intuitive and works great on Mac
Foot switches are really small and hard to stomp mid sing, especially if there are a lot of changes
The user interface on the unit itself is ridiculously confusing /(and I'm a computer guy so I should be able to figure it out!)
I ran into issues with my first one, and props to line 6, their techs couldn't figure it out, so they sent me a brand new one and it's been working great ever since. The issue was with recording via usb, i was getting some really buggy issues with the bit rate and it wasn't paying nice c with garage band
