|ricksox||I’m not sure why, but I just envision superman and crystals when I play this tone. Weird, I know. Anyway, it’s a pretty nice overdriven tone with a cool glassy Analog Delay w/MOD tone added to it. The Delay time parameter is set relatively low and I jacked up the Feedback a bit to 60%. I went with the Class A-15 amp model because I like the crunch it adds to the tone.||6/21/11|

|ricksox||In 1992 a band by the name of King Missile released an album entitled “Happy Hour” the band had a modest hit single on this album about the singer (John Hall) losing a certain ahem, body part after a night of partying. If you have no idea what I’m talking about just Google the band and you’ll get it. I actually stumbled across this tone on accident while trying to build some other tones for this blog. It’s a simple crunch guitar with a fairly long time signature Mult-Head delay effect. I threw an Overdrive effect before the amp in the chain and capped the signal chain off by adding a 4 Band Shift EQ. I actually think I came pretty close with this one and if you play the riff right you can see for yourself.||7/1/11|
||MoreRaggaPlease||Blackface Double Nrm||1731|
|ricksox||I don’t know what my infatuation is with Reggae tones but I always seem to try to dial in a better one that the last when I play around with my POD HD500. This particular tone is fairly straight forward and it showcases the Stereo Delay quite nicely. I’m once again using the Blackface Double Nrm amp model. The Left Time parameter on the Stereo Delay is set to 155ms and the right side Time is set to ¼ note triplet. The Left Feedback parameter is set to a lower 25% and the Right Feedback parameter is set slightly higher at 40%. I’ve got the Mix parameter set just above half way at 55%||10/27/11|
||DynaSlap300||Blackface Double Nrm||Rockabilly||1019|
|ricksox||The Dynamic Delay effect model allows you to dial in a great slap back delay type tone. I’d venture to say this slap back tone sounds almost as good as some of the other slap back delays I dialed in with the Analog Delay and Echo Platter models. I’m using the Blackface Dbl Nrm amp model here as it’s one of my favorite models and really makes the slap back tone sound great.||8/22/11|
|ricksox||I love the little Super O model on the POD HD multi-effects processors. If you’ve been reading my blogs you already know this. This particular amp model breaks up beautifully when you drive it and in my opinion, is very easy to dial in. This tone highlights the Ducking and Threshold parameters on the Dynamic Delay effect model. When I attack a note you can hear the delay duck a bit. This would be a good tone for a softer intro in a song, right before it explodes!||8/22/11|

||TapeEchoLuv||Jimmy Page||Whole Lotta Love||Led Zeppelin||Super O / Super O||Rock||1727|
|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|

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.
