1x12 combo amp with six original amp designs for flexible tone.
If you've been wanting the simplicity of traditional amp controls, but also want the versatility of a modern DSP-based amp, the Line 6 Catalyst 100 may be the amp at the end of your quest. A 100-watt, dual-channel, 1x12 combo, it's an excellent choice for everything from practice and informal jams to performances in medium-size venues. The Catalyst 100 is also great in the studio, thanks to a direct XLR out and its function as a USB audio interface. It features six original amp voices, developed with the renowned HX sound design system, helping make it a dream amp for many players.
Unique Amp Voicings to Inspire You
In creating the Catalyst series, Line 6 used their renowned HX sound design system to craft a half-dozen totally original amp voices. Featuring unique tonal palettes, inspired by the Line 6 collection of the best of modern and classic amplifiers, these designs summon iconic tones without being clones. Whether it's a pristine clean or a gargantuan high-gain assault, you can expect the feel and vibe you've always desired. As an added feature, each amp type's Boost circuit is customized specifically for that voice, making the most of its sonic possibilities. And when you need to lower the volume, there's no compromise in tone, thanks to the built-in Power Damping feature. All amps in the Catalyst series can be run at full-power, half-power or at just a half-watt, so wherever you are, you get the right tone at the right volume.
The Catalyst 100 has six types each of reverb, delay, modulation and pitch/filter effects built in and easily accessible. Setting up the signal chain you want is simple, whether you're after a vintage vibe or something a little more cutting edge. You can control the onboard effects straight from the amp's top panel, or dig in deeper to customize them with the free desktop and mobile Catalyst Edit apps. When you want to add in your existing pedalboard or multi-effects unit, it's simple, with a built-in effects loop. You can also switch that loop to function as a direct power amp input and use the amp as a powered extension cabinet for another amp or for a multi-effects unit like the Line 6 Helix.
Tone That Tracks With Ease
Step into the studio, and your Line 6 Catalyst 100 goes with you, providing superb guitar recording capability. Connect it to your computer via the USB connection, and your Catalyst functions as a four-channel audio interface. Or, if you're more old school when tracking, use the XLR direct out. Either way, you get the amp and effect tones you love, delivered directly into your DAW—no microphones, no attenuators, and nobody banging on the ceiling to get you to turn it down.
A Choice to Keep You Playing
With so many players today looking for that perfect combination of versatility, portability and solid, satisfying tone, the Line 6 Catalyst 100 makes an excellent option. The ability to cover a wide range of playing situations—whether it's recording in your home studio, practicing in the family room, jamming with friends or playing shows in mid-sized venues—makes it a choice that checks all the boxes. Balancing features, tone and power, the Catalyst series just makes sense.
