|chrisjw5||I was watching some YouTube videos from Chicago Music Exchange showing off some of the gorgeous pieces they have. And I got to thinking, 'the way they show these, it's an excellent platform to try to cop these sounds'. So I focused on a Pearly Gates demo to get a (duh) Gibbons tone cooking. ["http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHJZEJlosEg"] Starting with Pearly, they used a 20 watt Tweed, a TS808 and the Lester. So I set up a Tweed bright with a 421 Dynamic, a Screamer and a 63 reverb as my starting point. My guitar is an Edwards Jimmy Page with the Supercircuit (not engaged) loaded with Duncans. And with some tweaking, some back-and-forth and some walking away to let my ears rest, damn if I didn't come up with something close. FS5 kicks in a Tube Driver to push harder and make those harmonics jump, FS3 is a Memory Man for some analog delay and FS2 is a Dimension chorus for that Rough Boy sound. Try it.||6/16/12|
||Shimmer XII||Tom Petty, The Cure||Stairway To Heaven, Just Like Heaven||Tweed B-Man Brt||617|
|chrisjw5||I started out trying to emulate a 12 string, which is one of the things I don't think the HD series does well. What I did get is a cool twist on it. Using the Whammy, I set it an octave up and panned it slightly left, with a Flanger after it to give a delayed bit of slight wobble. Is it a true 12? No, but it IS a very cool (IMO) shimmering tone that can sub for an electric 12 live. Try playing anything from the Stairway intro to Tom Petty-esque jangle to 80's Cure and even War-era U2. Think New Year's Day. This won't be your main tone, but I think this will stick in the rotation.||1/26/13|
|chrisjw5||This isn't a nu-metal Mesa tone. I tried to emulate (believe it or not) Prince's tone on the YouTube video for "Guitar" (search it out, it's awesome). This is a pretty clear rock tone with some excellent crunch. I made these "+" patches so I'd have a set of default patches to use almost as a 4 channel amp. I set them up in Bank 1, channels 1-4 so I have a variety of go-to tones when I'm out. Each tone is set up with a distortion at FS1, delay at FS4 and various other FX at 2&3. Try 'em. I usually run Bank 1 as A) +Vox (or +Hiwatt) B) +Fender Deluxe, C) +Marshall D) +Mesa (or + Engl)||3/19/11|
||LA Metal||Phil Collen||Photograph||Def Leppard||Treadplate||Rock||1421|
|chrisjw5||FS1 is Tube Driver for a bit of a boost. FS5 is the Screamer for more of a solo push. FS2 is Analog Chorus, FS3 is a Reverb (on), FS4 is a Delay (adjust to taste, I leave it mostly off). FS6 is the trick, it's the Mid Focus EQ that adds a midrange bump, think the Tom Scholz Rockman for that Boston sound. It can also make a good solo boost. This was dialed in using a Jimmy Page Les Paul with Duncans. Here are some suggestions, depending upon what tone you're trying to cop. Def Leppard (Photograph), use the distortions at FS1 and F5 for solo work, for most rhythm stuff, just the amp is fine. FS2 Chorus gives a nice shimmer to the chorus arpeggios Boston (Don't Look Back), use FS6, the mid-Focus EQ, and maybe the Tube Screamer if you're good with palm muting, because it can run away on you quickly (and Scholz didn't use that much gain). Most hair metal (Poison, Motley Crue), use the mid-focus for the earlier stuff (Talk Dirty), leave it off for later stuff (Kickstart, Ride the Wind) This is NOT an exact copy of anyones tones. But it should get you covers-close to a lot of stuff. Before you evaluate and rate, I'd suggest going to a site like guitarbackingtracks.com and playing the patch WITH the song. In many cases a patch will sound 'wrong' on it's own. But that's not the goal, it should sit in the mix well. Try it.||3/24/12|

||Another Brick||David Gilmour||Another Brick in the Wall||Pink Floyd||Hiway 100||2528|
|chrisjw5||Step on FS1 to engage the overdrive and turn off the chorus for the "All in all..." part. I use this to play the song live, as it's not nearly as dry as the album (which I think doesn't translate well on stage).||2/20/11|
||Hiwatt Clean||Hiway 100||Rock||997|
|chrisjw5||Shimmery (but not too much so) Hiwatt clean. Great for the intro to Stairway to Heaven all the way up to Far Behind by Candlebox.||2/20/11|
Model Packs increase the number of Amp or FX Models of a GuitarPort, TonePort, PODxt, PODxt Live or PODxt Pro, for a wider variety of tone possibilities. When a particular tone in the library relies on a Model available in one of these packs, you'll see symbol(s) to indicate which Packs: MS (Metal Shop), CC (Classics Collection), FX (FX Junkie), and PP (Power Pack).
The models within the FX Junkie Model Pack are already included in PODxt Live, and offered for purchase to add-on to GuitarPort, TonePort, PODxt and PODxt Pro.
Variax is the uniquely flexibile guitar from Line 6. Our Vetta II amplifier includes a digital connection for the Variax that lets you store settings for both your amp and your guitar in the Vetta II so that when you call up a Vetta Channel Memory your amp and guitar can change sounds together. Vetta II Tones marked with this guitar symbol include this Variax data.
For each tone in the library, you'll see an icon for either a single coil or humbucker pickup. This tells you whether the tone is best for use with a single coil pickup or a humbucker, so you can select the appropriate pickup on your guitar when using this tone.
Attention POD 2.0, Flextone and HD147 owners... Your hardware doesn't do Stomp effects, so you'll hear something different than what was intended. Try increasing the Drive or choose a higher gain Amp Model to get the right sound. The other aspects of the sound should translate as expected, so you'll at least get a great starting place for tweaking.
