    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.

    A 2CH (or 3 depending on how you look at it) - high gain stereo patch. This is a direct attempt to recreate some of the tone I was getting with my Mesa Boogie JP-2C. It's not exactly the same, but in the ballpark. It has a Clean Channel that has a lot of headroom with little breakup, a Rhythm channel with plenty of gain on tap, but is more akin to an updated 80's thrash sound then some of the extended range metal of today. There are two lead channels - both similar, but one employs a ping pong delay. I originally worked on this with Ownhammer Impulse responses - but I reworked the whole patch to utilize stock cabs with some tips borrowed from The Guitar Geek's tutorial on YouTube. My signal chain was Gibson SG Standard (57 Classic Pups) - Helix, 2 StageSource L3T's via l6 link. Of course, your result will vary with different equipment. This is a patch designed for gig volumes.
