|chrisjw5||This isn't my tone. Pink Panther from The Gear Page posted his settings for the HD300. All I did was create a 500 patch and upload it. The tones are all his.||4/25/11|

||Shimmer XII||Tom Petty, The Cure||Stairway To Heaven, Just Like Heaven||Tweed B-Man Brt||620|
|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|
||Slash Plexi||Slash||Sweet Child O'Mine||Guns N'Roses||458840||Hard Rock||1264|
|chrisjw5||This is an update of my previous Slash Plexi, still using the Plexi Lead, but I kept swapping out cabs (and adjusting the mid-Boost EQ acc'd to Meambobo's guide) until I got to this. One of the keys was an interview where Slash talked about how the key to his heavy sound was a Fuzz box, not Distortion as I had always assumed. FS5 hits the Fuzz, FS2 is an analog Chorus and I threw an Octave at FS6 because Slash is now selling a pedal that does both Fuzz and Octave. I'm playing with a stock Edwards Jimmy Page Les Paul.||8/19/12|
||Slash AFD||Slash||Sweet Child O' Mine, et al||Guns N' Roses||Brit J-800 Pre||Hard Rock||472|
|chrisjw5||Does anyone have more presets named after him than Slash? Add one more. This is a tweak on my JCM800 patch to sweeten it a bit. I added more mid and treble, made the mic a 57 On Axis instead of Off, for more bite. I widened the delay and reverb (prob more than I'd normally use, but I was trying to think differently). FS5 introduces a Tube Drive and longer delay for soloing. I also put an Octaver at FS2, mimicing the new Slash Octave Fuzz pedal from MXR||1/26/13|

|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|
||Randy Rhoads||Randy Rhoads||Crazy Train / Blizzard of Ozz||Ozzy Osbourne||Brit P-75 / Blackface Double||Metal||4723|
|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|
||Purple Rain||Prince||Purple Rain||Prince and the Revolution||Blackface Double||Funkytime||2487|
|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|
||LA Metal||Phil Collen||Photograph||Def Leppard||Treadplate||Rock||1434|
|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|
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.
