    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.

    Snapshot 1 = Main clean sound Snapshot 2 = Lots of reverb for second intro part Snapshot 3 = Solo. I designed this patch to be used with the FX return of your amp hence why the cab block is switched off, however you could turn it on again if you liked. As James uses it a lot, I’ve picked the Roland Jazz Chorus amp (which is weird for me as I own a Jazz Chorus and designed this patch through its FX loop!). I’ve used reverb, delay, a compressor and later a ‘Rat’ pedal for the solo. I did want to use a harmoniser for one of the patches to replicate the bridge sound, but not all the notes are ‘3rds’ some of them are ‘4ths’ – never mind. Snapshot 2 is aimed to be used part way through the intro (37 seconds into the song if you listen to it) to replicate that bigger sound when the violins come in. What a great song!
