This preset is a bit complex. I use automation from my DAW for most of the whammy shifts in the song so probably this preset is not very "gig friendly". But playing this live and without automation can be quite the challenge. In path 2B I have a fuzz factory going straight out with the same settings in the pitch shifter as in path 1a and a reverb. If you find it too fuzzy you can turn it off. Matt uses this trick quite a lot and with the power of the helix we can do this. The snapshots 1 and 2 switch the whammy settings from -1 and +1 octave. Snapshot 3 is for the chorus and turns off the delay for a more dry and less muddy sound. Snapshot 4 is a less gainy more crunchy sound for the verses. This preset uses two free and great quality IR's: Cenzo Celestion Mix from Celestion and the Mesa Boogie V60 from Ownhammer (OH412 MES-ST V60 OH1 05.wav) Before the IR's I used the same stocks cabs from the Psycho preset: 1960 T75 and Cali V30 with the 421 mic very at 1". Hope you like it.

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.
