Line 6 on Tuesday released a new version of its amp and effects modeling software, Pod Farm.
[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]Pod Farm 2.5 features compatibility with any USB audio interface and 64-bit support. There is also a trial version that can be downloaded from the company’s Web site.
Included in POD Farm 2.5 are POD Farm Elements, plug-ins that streamline workflow and conserve CPU horsepower by grouping POD Farm models together by effect type. Users can load single amps, preamps or effects instead of loading multiple instances of POD Farm 2.5.
“With POD Farm 2.5, guitarists get an amazing collection of amps and effects — the kind that gear fantasies are made of — plus the convenience of being able to use it alone, outside of their recording software,” said Mike Murphy, Category Manager for POD and Effects products at Line 6. “Its vintage and modern amps, cabs and effects make it an absolute must-have for any guitarist’s studio.”
I’ve used Pod Farm for a number of years and think it’s a great product for guitarists. You can buy extra model packs that will add amps and effects to the application, but it’s basically ready to use right out of the box.
Pod Farm 2.5 is available as a standalone app or as a AU/RTAS/VST plug-in. The update is free for existing Pod Farm 2.0 owners and costs $99 for new users.
