Press releases can sometimes be about as exciting to flick through as having a tooth pulled, but not this time. The pioneers of amp modeling – Line 6 – have recently announced their new line of DT25 guitar amplifiers, and to add to the buzz I’ve got the full press release here in my grubby paws… MWHA HA HA HA HAAAAA… OK, enough of that… Here’s the scoop:
What’s your favourite superlative? Like a rock star throwback from the 1980′s crossed with a Wayne Campbell (Mike Myers) wannabe: My favourite superlative has to be AWESOME!… I say it far more than any self respecting guitarist should, but much like my GAS (Gear acquisition Syndrome), it’s a hard habit to break.
On this occasion I am forced to make an exception, and only because AWESOME! just will not cover it.
Get your wallet out, because you’re gonna want one of these!
The top chaps at Andertons have recorded a video along with Line 6′s own product demonstrator. Check out the video below:
Well it’s not really new news, as the first report of Satch moving back to Marshall came from http://www.guitarnoize.com/joe-satriani-returns-to-marshall-amps/ in June 2009… But info has been around since January 2011 that Marshall is in fact about to release a Joe Satriani Signature version of the JVM410H at NAMM in January 2012. Marshall are officially denying this at the moment via official retail channels… Which is a bit silly really!
What does ‘Pro’ really mean… yeah ok, you got me, of course it means Professional. But what does that word mean to you? Does it mean a job.. A career.. Or perhaps a vocation? When listening to your guitar heros (and playing air guitar to their uncommonly good chops) do you dream of a day when you too could be a guitar hero with others listening to you on their iPods, etc. Would you then consider yourself a Pro?
Choices. It’s great to have them, but occasionally it’s not to easy to decide which choice is the right one.
Take the POD HD series of revolutionary amp modelers and multi-FX devices from Line 6. There are 5 to choose from, and they’re all brimming with great features.
So to help you decide which one you want to buy, and which one will fit any requirements you have, I’ve gathered information from several different sources on Line 6′s website, and collated it into one single document.

Nope you didn’t read this wrong… If you already own any version of Reason AND any version of Record. Then from 30th September to 31st August 2011 you can pay what you want for the upgrade to Reason 6 (although there’s a minimum of $1/1EURO).
There’s no catch at all, and the only thing is it’s only a downloadable license (i.e. you get no boxed product), but it’s a full version of the license with no catches.

The mothership has landed, and what an impressive mothership it is!
The latest Line 6 multi-FX and amp modeler to be branded with the POD HD moniker is the all new POD HD Pro. It’s similar to the rest of the POD HD family and still boasts 22 amazingly detailed amp models, 16 cab models, 8 mic models, and over 100 high quality M-Series FX. The easy to use interface will be familiar to you if you’ve used a POD HD500 or HD bean, but simple to work out if you’re new to the POD HD line or amp modelers in general. Obviously the Pro model has some extra features which will certainly appeal more to studio users as well as those of us who like to keep our gear in a rack at the back of the stage and control it with an FBV Shortboard front of stage.
I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen in the past year, Line 6 users have posted on the Line 6 User Community asking for a version of POD Farm for their iPhones and iPads…. Well just to prove they listen to us (like they’ve proven many times before) Line 6 have announced their all new Mobile In (iPhone/iPad/iTouch Audio interface) and Mobile POD.
Below is the official press release to learn more about this exciting announcement.
So… You’ve got a POD HD, and you’ve got firmware 1.3… But you’re not totally sure what the Deep Edit Parameters (aka DEPs) can do to improve your tone your tone, and you’re interested in the L6 Elektrik amp model and you’d like to know more about it.
Well Line 6 has seen the question mark above your head, and replaced it with a light bulb that’s about to turn on, in a moment of realisation of the power your POD HD contains within it…… “Bing” (That was the light bulb turning on by the way)…
So get yourself over to check out the Line 6 Blog and be prepared to be in awe of Line 6 and of Kris Daniel, a Senior DSP Software Engineer and Uber Guru @ Line 6.
