Effects
POD® 2.0 comes with a built in set of effects that are tweaked to perfection. This “best of” collection of effects makes searching for the perfect sounds ultra easy. Multiple versions of the effects give you rack or stompbox versions, and the combination effects give you classic setups like Delay and Chorus simultaneously.

There’s even a full time Reverb, Tap Tempo for getting your delay’s in time with the band, and an Effect Tweak knob for custom tailoring your effects. Plus, you’ll never be out of tune because you’ll get a Chromatic Tuner with a silent mute function for tuning between songs.

Ins and Outs
POD® is equipped to handle today’s guitar recording needs with +4dBu balanced or -10dBV unbalanced 1/4″ connectors. MIDI lets you automate every move and our optional FBV™ generation foot controllers let you do it all with your feet. POD 2.0 also comes with a high-power headphone output for silent jamming.

  • Input – Plug your guitar in here.
  • Phones – Plug in your headphones here for silent practicing.
  • Left & Right Output – These are balanced 1/4″ TRS connectors, and ready to rock with pro +4 dBu balanced equipment. They will also work happily with unbalanced -10 dBV equipment and standard guitar cables.
  • A.I.R.™ Mode – If you want to plug POD into a guitar amp as “front end,” flip the A.I.R. Mode switch to AMP, and set your amp for a clean tone. This defeats the speaker-microphone-room tone simulation of the A.I.R. processing. If you’re using POD in almost any other setup (plugging direct into a mixer, recorder, PA, power amplifier, etc.) you want the DIRECT position on the A.I.R. switch.
  • Foot Pedal Connector – POD® 2.0 is now compatible with the entire line of current foot controllers including FBV Express™ and FBV Shortboard™!
  • MIDI In & Out – Connect POD to your MIDI equipment to select channel memories or automate POD settings.
