Yes. Only if you want the different types of outputs though, otherwise, just get an HD500.

That's the advantage of being such a distance from Yianni. I can continue to live my life without fear of stumbling upon his dark terror.

They're definitely worth it, obviously it's competitors are the Axe FX 2 however for the price you get a great bit of kit.

Id hold off a bit, Line6 just announced the hd500x. I'm sure they will be doing the same thing to the pro.

Unless you want all those different I/O's for recording, than no. Most people don't, but of course I don't know what your recording situation is.

You can get the POD HD Desktop for $400, except it doesn't have an expression pedal, and it has a few less I/O's than the HD 500 and Pro. It should be noted that they just released the HD 500x which has more processing power and some fancier looking footswitches, so you should be able to get the regular 500 for cheaper.

Also, have you tried any of the POD HD's in person yet?

Maybe not. I get the feeling that the Pro didn't sell very well.

Fingers crossed though.

I was going to put it into a rack setup with a power amp etc that goes into a 2x12.
