||ZZ TWEED||Billy Gibbons||Just Got Paid/Cheap Sunglasses||ZZ Top||Tweed B-Man Brt||1946|
|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|
||ZZ Fender||Billy Gibbons||ZZ Top||Blackface 'Lux / Blackface 'Lux||6036|
|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|
||Zeppelin PLEXI||Jimmy Page||What Is And What Should Never Be||Led Zeppelin||458840||1875|
|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 57 Goldtop demo ["http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZB8rRBOQ0U"] as a basis for a good Zeppelin tone, specifically What Is And What Should Never Be. For that, the demo is using a /13 so I started with a Plexi 100 Bright and a Spring Reverb. My guitar is an Edwards Jimmy Page with the Supercircuit (not engaged) loaded with Duncans. I was keying on the dirty clean chording in the verse of the song. After getting close, I started adding in pedals that would be close to what Page used. So I threw in the Vox ToneBender (FS5) for LZ1 and LZ2 distortion, a Tube Driver (FS1) to push the distortion for a later Graffiti sound. But I couldn't get that not-quite-fuzz, but more than dirty-clean breakup, until I put a MicroAmp (FS6) in. I like it for nudging that dirty-clean Plexi tone into OD without going to distortion. I added in a Barberpole Phaser for that Rover/Nobody's Fault sound and a Memory Man for some analog delay. Feedback welcome.||6/16/12|
||STP||Dean DeLeo||Stone Temple Pilots||Angel F-Ball||Rock||1564|
|chrisjw5||Use FS1 to add compression, FS2 for Screamer and FS3 for Flanger (Sex Type Thing, Army Ants)||2/26/11|
||Slash Plexi||Slash||Sweet Child O'Mine||Guns N'Roses||458840||Hard Rock||1256|
|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||466|
|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|
||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|
||Sabbath||Tony Iommi||Black Sabbath||Divide 9/15||Metal||3352|
|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|
||Randy Rhoads||Randy Rhoads||Crazy Train / Blizzard of Ozz||Ozzy Osbourne||Brit P-75 / Blackface Double||Metal||4716|
|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||2482|
|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|
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.
