||ZZ Fender||Billy Gibbons||ZZ Top||Blackface 'Lux / Blackface 'Lux||5764|
|chrisjw5||I was looking for a Billy tone that I could use for all of the ZZ periods, from La Grange to Afterburner. This isn't exact for any one album, but I modeled it after the Live in Texas DVD and the VH1 storytellers. Coupling a Fender Deluxe with a Jumbo Fuzz gave me a good "Billy Live" tone. Throaty enough for Tres Hombres but hot enough for Stages. Check out the FX to gunk it all up. Step on FS2 to toggle on both the Digital Delay and Dimension Chorus for some Rough Boy.||2/20/11|
||ZZ TWEED||Billy Gibbons||Just Got Paid/Cheap Sunglasses||ZZ Top||Tweed B-Man Brt||1683|
|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|
||STP||Dean DeLeo||Stone Temple Pilots||Angel F-Ball||Rock||1524|
|chrisjw5||Use FS1 to add compression, FS2 for Screamer and FS3 for Flanger (Sex Type Thing, Army Ants)||2/26/11|
||DumbleVOX AC30||Santana, Bonamassa, Pearl Jam, Eric Clapton, John Mayer||Santana, Bonamassa, Pearl Jam, Eric Clapton, John Mayer||Class A-30 TB||1648|
|chrisjw5||I saw this great YouTube clip via The Gear Page of a Dumble-esque sound (http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=tWIKeUFUDUY), so I tried to emulate it. Using the Line 6 blog post about Bias and Sag (http://bit.ly/18Y8kDZ), I fiddled quite a bit with the AC30TB. I didn't quite get Galo's tone - his is a bit smoother - but I got (what I think is) a really nice medium-gain sound using a Vintage Pre and a Red Comp, and adding a Screamer in for some boost. I also can't play like Galo, but I've been messing with warmer OD songs like Yellow Ledbetter and I like how this came out. I'm using an original Aerodyne Strat with SD single-spaced buckers and a heavy Tom Anderson trem bridge in it, so you'll have to adjust for taste. Give this some time and a bit of tweaking. I think you'll like it.||6/9/13|
||Purple Rain||Prince||Purple Rain||Prince and the Revolution||Blackface Double||Funkytime||2286|
|chrisjw5||FS1 for solo boost, FS3 for Phaser to swirl that ending out. Hint 1: don't use the cowboy chords**. Hint 2: wear velvet. ** Bbsus x13311 G11 3x3311 F 133211 Eb xx134x F7 131211||3/23/11|
||Another Brick||David Gilmour||Another Brick in the Wall||Pink Floyd||Hiway 100||2366|
|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|
||Randy Rhoads||Randy Rhoads||Crazy Train / Blizzard of Ozz||Ozzy Osbourne||Brit P-75 / Blackface Double||Metal||4250|
|chrisjw5||This is about as close as I can get to Randy's tone on the new Blizzard re-release. On it's own, it's nasally... so was Randy's tone. Play it with a backing track or against the song and you'll see how close it is. Randy's was a bit smoother and if I can improve on it, I'll reload it here. I did this was a Carvin Contour 66 - a super Strat with a fairly hot bridge pickup. This tone runs at the edge of literally going off the rails. You may need to adjust the Master on the amp at louder volumes (I haven't tried it fully cranked).||6/7/11|
||Oasis Marshall||Noel Gallagher||Acquiesce||Oasis||Brit J-2000 #2||Rock||443|
|chrisjw5||This really mimics Noel's live sound - the Les Paul + Marshall combination.||12/12/08|
||Oasis Marshall||Noel Gallagher||Oasis||Brit J-2000 #2||Rock||237|
||LA Metal Mick||Mick Mars, CC DeVille||Girls, Girls, Girls; Talk Dirty To Me||Motley Crue, Poison||Brit P-75||80's Metal||3079|
|chrisjw5||I use this as a generic 80's Metal tone. Hair band purists will find it doesn't nail any one specific tone, but it does cover a wide variety. Use it for live covers of Motley or Poison or Warrant. I based it on CC's "Talk Dirty" tone and Mick Mars' "Girls" sound. You'll find a Screamer for solo boost at FS1, Phaser at FS2 and Flanger at FS3 -you can even knock out some DLR-era VH with these. Another choice is to pick which one you'll use least and sub it out for a longer delay to trigger at FS1 for a more "LA" solo. Your call.||2/26/11|
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.
