    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.

    My 2nd tone. It's not an Eric Johnson emulation, but tagging it that way gives you the general idea. It is a clear single coil main signal with delay and a light particle verb underlying it. The chain starts with a compressor, then into the WhoWatt100. The signal chain splits into the main signal path (4x12 WhoWatt 100, with a further split into the tape delay and hall verb, and switchable subtle octave doubling and minotaur distortion). The particle path runs into a 4x12 Blackback 30 and then into the particle verb. The particle channel has a switchable chorus. The main signal and particle signals each go out separately. Switches include bypasses on the Hall Verb, Delay, Particle Verb, Octave doubler, Distortion, Chorus - and two controller foot switches - one of which boosts the particle mix and the other boosts the output of the main signal.
