Fear Inoculum
I made a simple set of snapshots in the vien of Tool's Fear Inoculum. It features the EPIC amp as the meat of the tone with use of the rev gen red to brighten up and bring in some saturation. This is a Dual amp, dual Cab with split A/B blended to what I felt was close enough. When FX are on its a stereo rig, because why not. when in dry rhythm it's mono. For the sake of sharing a first time tone, i avoid my normal use of IR's to make it more universal for potential uploads... please insert your fav metal IR's in place of the Cabs... Not all the FX like the Wha have been dialled in. Have fun.....another quality release from #Tool

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.
