|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|
||Kings of Leon||Matthew Followill||Sex on Fire / Use Somebody||Kings of Leon||Blackface 'Lux Nrm||779|
|chrisjw5||I wrote this to try to cover some Kings songs with one guitar. As written, it uses a standard Blackface, good for the Sex on Fire intro. FS1 engages the Tube Driver for some slight bump - think Caleb's rhythm chorus to Use Somebody. FS5 is Matthew's lead sound. It introduces a Screamer, a Modulated Delay and some Analog Chorus for that big, almost U2 sound on Only By The Night. This is your lead Chorus to all the big-sounding songs. Use FS5 and FS8 (Opto Trem) for a decent approximation of Jared's delayed bass as the hook to Closer. FS2 is a Dimension chorus, just because I had the room.||7/6/12|
||KoL Marshall Ambient||Matthew Followill||Kings of Leon||Brit J-800||Rock||1045|
||PARK||Joe Walsh - Billy Duffy - Billy Squier||James Gang - The Cult - Free - Foghat||Brit P-75 Brt||Rock||813|
|chrisjw5||For Marshall tones, I can't get past the Park with the Tube Comp engaged full-time. I keep FS1 on 90% of the time and I can cover a TON of ground. Joe Walsh/James Gang? Check. Free, Foghat and other 70's rock? Check. 80's crunch pop like Billy Squier? Check. Hit FS2 for some Analog Flanger and I can do most Billy Duffy stuff from the Cult (try the She Sells Sanctuary, Sun King and Fire Woman riffs). FS4 is a delay and FS5 is the DOD yellow OD for solo work. Try it, as this is rapidly becoming one of my favorite patches. This and my Blackface patch will cover most of your live needs. I've been on a good run of 4 and 5 star rated patches and I'm hoping you all find this as useful.||8/16/12|
||BLACKFACE||Blackface 'Lux Nrm||Rock||1970|
|chrisjw5||I've been using this for live work in a cover band. Try it. Cuts through really well for me with both singles and buckers. Set up a little dirty, it's my 'clean-ish' sound. Put a Screamer in front and it's my Crunch. Throw an OD and I can solo with it. I use it for everything from 867-5309 to Don't Stop Believing. Tom Petty, Bryan Adams, Sublime. It just worked. It cut through, it was articulate. It was great. If you're looking for a tone-for-tone cop of any of those songs, this isn't it. If you're looking for an articulate rock patch to cut through on stage, try it. I go with my HD500 right into a Tech 21 PE60 and adjust for the room with the PE60's EQ.||12/14/11|
||Kings X Ty Tabor||Ty Tabor||King's X||MS-Diamondplate||Metal Shred||274|
|chrisjw5||Stomp for solo boost Modified Brian's a bit||6/23/09|
||LA Metal||Phil Collen||Photograph||Def Leppard||Treadplate||Rock||860|
|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|
||LA Metal Mick||Mick Mars, CC DeVille||Girls, Girls, Girls; Talk Dirty To Me||Motley Crue, Poison||Brit P-75||80's Metal||2529|
|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|
||LA Metal Mick||Mick Mars||Girls, Girls, Girls||Motley Crue||Brit P-75||1161|
|chrisjw5||This is a v1.31 update of an earlier patch. I really like Mick Mars tone (and his playing - tasty) and wanted to capture that punchy but not overly distorted thing he's got going. Trying playing the riff to Wild Side or Kickstart with this and tell me it doesn't cut right through.||6/9/11|
||Randy Rhoads||Randy Rhoads||Crazy Train / Blizzard of Ozz||Ozzy Osbourne||Brit P-75 / Blackface Double||Metal||3333|
|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|
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.
