Line 6, Inc. has released POD Farm 2.5 and POD Farm 2.5 Platinum, the latest updates to their premium tone plug-ins that add POD tone to any digital audio workstation. 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 legacy.  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 boasts an arsenal of historic guitar and bass amps, cabs, studio-standard effects, classic stompboxes, colorful preamps and a virtual A/B/Y box.  POD Farm 2.5 offers hand-picked recording essentials for guitar, bass and vocals while POD Farm 2.5 Platinum delivers more than 250 models.  The simple, carousel-style browser lets users drag-and-drop models into the signal flow to build the perfect sound.  Enhanced routing with flexible digital signal processing allows for a broader range of tones.  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 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.

POD Farm 2.5 and POD Farm 2.5 Platinum offer full MIDI support via any MIDI controller.  Intuitive MIDI Learn functionality makes it easy to 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 seamless integration with all major 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.
