|Here's a decent FF tone. May be a good starting point. Used a Schecter C1 Classic Diamond Series guitar with dual humbuckers. Switch selector in the middle position.||4/7/11|
||HugeHair||Treadplate||80's Arena Rock||1058|
|ricksox||This is a fun tone I put together. I was trying to capture a bit of 80’s hair or glam by using a high gain amp model with the modulation really dialed up a bit on the Analog w/Mod delay effect. Doing this gives the tone a sort of “shimmery” feel. I’m using the Treadplate amp model here based on* the Mesa Boogie® Dual Rectifier amp; a true classic in the high gain amp world. I’ve stuck with the default 4x12 Treadplate V-30 cabinet and the 87 Condenser Mic. I added a Noise Gate to my signal chain. Decay is set to 35% and Threshold is set to 15%. This quiets the buzz a bit without killing the sustain. For the delay, I cranked the Depth parameter up to a fairly high 70% which is what really adds the “shimmer”. I dialed in this tone using a dual humbucker guitar with the pickup selector set to the bridge position. When playing this tone, palm mute up and down the fret board and then let the “shimmer” out by letting a power chord sustain. Yeah!||6/21/11|
||DynaRecto500||NOFX, Less Than Jake||Treadplate||Metal/Modern Punk||795|
|ricksox||Here’s something a little heavier for you high gain folks out there. I’m using the Treadplate amp model here and you might here a tone like this on some of the more modern punk rock albums IE: NOFX, Less Than Jake, etc. It would also work well with metal. Again, I only added a touch of the Dynamic Delay model to give it more of a reverb type quality as opposed to a true delay sound.||8/22/11|
||TapeEchoLuv||Jimmy Page||Whole Lotta Love||Led Zeppelin||Super O / Super O||Rock||1430|
|ricksox||For this tone I wanted to see how close I could get to the classic Jimmy Page sound on Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love”. If you know the main lick, play it and let me know what you think. I dialed this in using a dual humbucker guitar with the guitar in the bridge position. I went directly into the guitar input on my Pod HD 500 multi-effects processer and set the output mode to Studio Direct. This is a dual tone which I panned 50% hard left and right from the mixer block in the POD. I went with the Super O amp model on the POD which is based on* the Supro®S6616. Jimmy Page confirmed that he used a Supro in the studio on most of the Led Zeppelin and Led Zeppelin II albums but he never said which one. I think this little amp sounds pretty close though. I went with the Tape Echo model here as it’s well known that Jimmy used the EP-3 quite a bit live. Time is set to 160ms, Feedback to 20%, Bass 48%, Treble 50%, and Mix at 20%.||6/7/11|
||TubeEchoLuv||Jimmy Page||Whole Lotta Love||Led Zeppelin||Super O / Super O||Rock||837|
|ricksox||This is pretty much the same exact tone as my TapeEchoLuv tone, accept I tweaked the drive parameter a bit on Amp 2 bringing it down to 11% and instead of using the Tape Echo model, I went with the Tube Echo delay. The Tube Echo has an added Wow/Flutter parameter that literally represents analog tape flutter or “frequency wobble” as a result of the tape working its way through the reels. Really cool! It also has a Drive parameter that will add a bit more bite to your tone as you raise it. Time is set to 160ms, Feedback to 20%, Wow/Flutter to 25%, Drive to 10% and mix to 20%.||6/7/11|

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.
