Line 6 POD Farm 2.5
Line 6 just released POD Farm 2.5 and POD Farm 2.5 Platinum, the latest updates to their tone plug-ins. A new, free trial version is also available.
POD Farm 2.5 is the latest offering in the Line 6 POD and Amp Farm modeling software. Its new features include compatibility with any USB audio interface, 64-bit support, standalone capability and the new free trial version. Upgrading to POD Farm 2.5 is free for owners of POD Farm 2.
Each software plug-in features guitar and bass amps, cabs, effects, stompboxes, preamps and a virtual A/B/Y box. POD Farm 2.5 offers recording essentials for guitar, bass and vocals while POD Farm 2.5 Platinum delivers 250 models. The carousel-style browser lets users drag-and-drop models into the signal flow to build their sound. One signal can be split into two separate and simultaneous amp and effect signal chains with one click.
Included in POD Farm 2.5 are POD Farm Elements, plug-ins designed to 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.
POD Farm 2.5 and POD Farm 2.5 Platinum offer MIDI support via MIDI controller. MIDI Learn functionality is designed to let you control model bypass, volume, mute, global tap tempo, the virtual A/B/Y box and more. All versions are Mac AU/RTAS/VST and Windows RTAS/VST compatible for integration with recording applications. They offer 64-bit support for compatible DAWs including Cubase 5, Reaper 3.71, SONAR 8.x or SONAR X1, Logic 9.2 and others. iLok USB Smart Key versions are also available.
