The GearBox Gold Plug-In Bundle contains the same models that are found in Line 6's flagship product, the Vetta II, plus it adds the Bass Expansion model pack. In essence, the Gold Bundle includes every model that Line 6 offers.
The Silver Bundle had the same standard set of amp models found in the GuitarPort and TonePort. Some of the models included with the PODxt family of devices are not found in the TonePort, GuitarPort or the Silver Bundle unit. As of August 1st, 2008, all TonePort DI-Silver Bundle devices receive a complimentary free update to Gold Bundle status.
Below is a brief summary of how model pack combinations added to the GuitarPort, TonePort or Silver bundle devices compare to those devices that include more models:
Power Pack models update the GuitarPort/TonePort/Silver model set to match the PODxt/PODxt Pro model set.
Power Pack and the FX Junkie model packs update the GuitarPort/TonePort/Silver model set to match the PODxt Live model set.
Power Pack, FX Junkie, Collector Classic, and Metal Shop (also known as the Triple Pack) model packs update the GuitarPort/TonePort/Silver model set to match the Vetta II model set.
Power Pack, the Triple Pack and the Bass Expansion models update the GuitarPort/TonePort/Silver model set to match the Gold Bundle model set.
The model sets used with the GuitarPort, TonePort and PODxt family devices are not VST plug-in ready when purchased. The online purchase and activation of the Gearbox VST Plug-in is needed to add this capability.
