Line 6 has announced the release of its powerful new POD Studio USB interfaces for recording guitarists. Each POD Studio also includes POD Farm plug-in to provide POD tone for any DAW.
"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 OS X AU/RTAS/VST and Windows RTAS/VST formats, supplies a 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.
POD Studio USB interfaces, according to Line 6, 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.
