Line 6, Inc., an industry leader in modeling technology for music products, ships powerful new POD Studio USB interfaces for recording guitarists. Each POD Studio includes POD Farm plug-in to provide POD tone for any digital audio workstation.

“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, POD Studio will revolutionize the way guitarists record—just like the original POD.”

POD Farm plug-in, available in both Mac AU/RTAS/VST and Windows RTA/VST formats, supplies a must-have collection of legendary tones necessary for every recording guitarist. It’s complete with over 50 immortal guitar and bass amps and cabs, from dark and smoky American combos to gain-crazed English stacks, plus 29 crucial studio and stompbox effects and 6 pro mic preamps. POD Farm boasts an intuitive carousel-style interface and a simple drag-and-drop signal flow that afford effortless recording. Above all, POD Farm produces great-sounding tracks.

POD Studio USB interfaces are powerful and rock-solid. They outperform similar interfaces with the lowest noise for recording guitar—over 12 dB more signal-to-noise—and with exclusive Line 6 ToneDirect™ monitoring that virtually eliminates latency and allows for simultaneous recording and monitoring of a fully processed tone. Plus, 44.1/48 kHz 16-/24-bit recording (88.2/96 kHz with sample rate conversion) ensures album-quality results.

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 a high-quality 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, an S/PDIF digital output and a pair of assignable VU meters.

Each POD Studio delivers instant pro recording right out of the box. POD Studios GX and UX1 include Ableton Live Lite 8-track recording software. POD Studio UX2 includes Ableton® Live Lite Line 6 Studio Edition 16-track recording software as well as Reason Adapted production software.
