    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.

    This ***STEREO*** patch is for the solo parts of the song “Money”, from the DSOTM Pink Floyd monumental album (released in March 1973) . It is expected to be played with a v2.10 JTV Spank pos 1 with the tone knob set at 100%, connected through VDI to a v2.31 HD500, XLR'ed direct to PA (2 channels). Set input1=variax, input2=aux. Gilmour’s guitar solo on “Money” is made up of three parts with distinct production techniques. The first part David double-tracked manually (two performances). He used his Strato bridge pickup into a Hi-Watt amp with Fuzz Face and echo. In contrast to the massive delay and reverb of the first part, the second section of the solo is completely dry (Fuzz Face only), with the effects kicking back in on the walkdown leading to the third part. Gilmour played the third part on a Bill Lewis Custom 24-frets guitar so he could hit some high notes that were out of reach on his Strat. This part was automatically double tracked with an analog tape delay. This dual path ***STEREO*** patch emulates the first and second part, with the Classic Distortion positioned pre-split: on path A it employs the Highway 100 amp, while on path B it just feeds the JTV spank sound via a Tube Comp with a 40 ms delay to simulate Gilmour's double tracking technique. Differential levelling is applied in the mixer, to compensate for varying volume levels of each channel. On the second part, with the delays and reverbs deactivated, there is a deliberate level unbalance between the two channels. For the second solo part, press FS2 to deactivate the two delays and the 63'Spring reverb. Enjoy ! See actual live performance on this link:
