    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.

    Classic sound of Pete Townshend's SG at Woodstock and Live at Leeds using a James Tyler Variax 69s, connected through VDI to a Line 6 HD500, XLR'ed direct to PA (2 channels, stereo). This ***STEREO*** patch is expected to be played with a v2.10 JTV (Lester pos 2 with the tone knob set at 70% and one whole step down tuning), connected through VDI to a v2.31 HD500, direct to PA (2 channels). Set input1=variax, input2=same. Trying to simulate the Woodstock (and Live at Leeds) famous Who performance, where the song was played in standard tuning in the key of A. The studio version was recorded with the guitars tuned down whole step (DGCFAD), but the chord shapes were played on A major. This proved to be an awesome technique, due to great rock resonance of the A major chord. The link below is sample of Townshend's guitar actual sound from Live at Leeds: Pete Townshend used (and abused) exclusively on stage Gibson SG Specials (with P-90 "soapbar" pickups) from mid-late 1968 until 1971, and this is the guitar model with which he's most famously associated. This guitar model was used for the famous late '60s/early '70s live recordings, including Woodstock and Live at Leeds. Since the SG Special is not implemented in the new JTV HD f/w, the patch is using the Lester pos 2, with the tone knob set at 70% and one whole step down tuning. For amplification Townsend used Hiwatt DR103 100w amplifier heads (two heads, each driving one 200w Hiwatt SE4122 4x12 cabinet with 50w Fane speakers). To compensate for the extra SG brightness, the patch uses the XXL-V-30 cab on path B. The patch also uses the Red Comp to fulfill the need for added boost and sustain. Here is a quick tab on how to play the intro with the tuned down JTV: |G G G G |G/F G/F G/F G/F |G G G G |G/F G/F G/F G/F | |---------------|--------------------------|---------------|--------------------------| |---------------|--------------------------|---------------|--------------------------| |2--2--2--2--|2-----2------2-----2---|2--2--2--2--|2-----2-----2-----2----| |2--2--2--2--|2-----2------2-----2---|2--2--2--2--|2-----2-----2-----2----| |0--0--0--0--|--------------------------|0--0--0--0--|--------------------------| |---------------|3-----3------3-----3---|---------------|3-----3-----3-----3----| More details on: See actual live performance on this link: Enjoy and not abuse your JTV!
