    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.

    I'm a huge fan of 50's and 60's blues - yet I usually play worship music that requires a little cleaner tone. This one however... I wouldn't consider "cleaner"... but it's just about right. There's not much more mojo you can have than using a 50s Telecaster and a Silvertone amp. I love this rig! Using 121 ribbon mic with 2x12 Mail (2.5") and 4038 ribbon mic with the 4x12 WhoWatt cab (5"). Great lead tone or adding rhythm fills and textures. There is some '63 Spring reverb added for flavor. I sometimes swamp it with a couple different reverbs to create amazing swells or an ambient layer under another lead guitarist. The breakup of the 1484 is already special by itself so I simply put a Kinky Boost in there to give it a little more of it's own medicine. Compressors are both setup using Sadites base settings tweaked to my ears' liking. All you have to do is add your delay(s) and dial them up to tempo. One of my favorite rigs.
