The POD has taken the guitar and music industry by storm with its ability to reproduce countless guitar tones in one easy to use desktop unit. From a session player's point of view, he/she can now turn up to a session and produce any guitar sound imaginable without arriving with a truckload of amps.
The POD has also opened many doors for the home studio owner. Once again the unit limits the amount of equipment needed for recording guitars, plus you can
get the sounds that could only be produced by turning most valve amps up to the max.
The POD also has many advantages when being used live. To start with, it can be fed into a PA system. The POD can also be run in line with an existing guitar amp. Lets just say you've always wanted the sound of a vintage Marshall, or a Mesa Boogie Rectifier, but can't afford it. Well, the POD will produce those sounds through your amp, effectively using the amp as a power amp. Put all of the above together, with the POD's vast editing abilities, both on the unit or with PC or MAC software, and you see why so many pro and semi-pro musicians are now delving into the world of amp modelling.
The industry standard for direct recording in the studio, the POD delivers the
tones heard on hit records everywhere. For practicing, it’s the ultimate way to
get inspiring, stage-perfected tones with headphones. In the studio, it enables you to be more productive and
creative. This desktop miracle has an incredible range from classic clean to modern high-gain tones. The POD allows you to quickly choose amps and effects without the long set up times and expensive equipment.
The Ultimate Gear Guides DVD and The POD Settings Bible tutorial by Lick Library is an must-have for all POD users. The DVD guide and POD settings bible provides good technical information and video instructions on how to use the POD, as well as sound settings for many well known classic tracks.
