DT-series amps and POD HD-series multi-effects now offer guitarists more tones, features and flexibility than ever before
ANAHEIM, Calif.—January 24, 2012—Line 6, Inc. (NAMM room 212A), is pleased to announce the availability of two firmware updates that dramatically increase the functionality of DT-series amps and POD® HD-series multi-effect processors. These free updates feature new HD tones, more configuration options and unprecedented flexibility.
V2.0 Firmware for DT-series amps
Co-designed by Line 6 and tube-amp guru Reinhold Bogner, DT-series amplifiers combine reconfigurable analog topologies with Line 6 technology to provide boutique feel and sonic versatility. Firmware v2.0 introduces the following features:
30 HD preamps (increased from 4) give guitarists the ability to create unique amp tones by pairing any preamp with any combination of dynamic topologies—including negative feedback loop, operating class, power tube mode, and more—within Reinhold Bogner’s reconfigurable tube power amp
Musicians can load a DT amp with up to eight unique voicings (four on channel A, plus four on channel B), providing a wide array of tones for performance and recording
Each voicing can be configured with a choice of 12 reverbs, all of which feature unique parameter settings
Reverb spillover allows the reverb to finish its decay when switching between Channel A and Channel B
Each amp model can have its own unique 12AX7 boost setting*
All you need to know is that Christmas has come 2 months early! With Line 6 already releasing the POD HD updates recently, now it’s the turn of the DT Series of amplifiers to get some serious love with firmware v2.0 bringing some great new features.
Now there are all POD HD amp models (30 increased from 4), some other configurable amp parameters, 12 reverb models, 17 selectable cab models (including no cab). These are all configurable via MIDI, so if you would prefer not to have these extra options, that’s fine too, as the original features and ease of use will still be there.
With this update the DT50 you can now use the direct output when in standby mode (which was already there on the DT25). Continue reading →
