    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.

    <p><b>This preset requires the latest Helix 3.15 firmware and HX Edit 3.15.</b></p> <p>Uses the new Ventoux amp with 3 drive snapshots: Clean, Drive and Lead… all going through a Dual cab: 2x12 Blue Bell and 2x12 US Princess. On the Cabs I low cut at 100Hz and high cut at 8.5kHz cuz that’s how I roll.</p> <p>8 snapshots and a stomp for each effect block:</p> <ul> <li>Heliosphere</li> <li>Tesselsator</li> <li>Ampeg Opto Comp (always on, no stomp)</li> <li>Crisscross</li> <li>Sweeper</li> <li>Double Take</li> <li>Dynamic Plate</li> <li>Shimmer</li> <li>Dynamic Hall</li></ul> <p>The Tesselator takes some getting used to. There are so many ways to use it, this preset is only ONE of an infinite number of uses. Try starting with the Cloud [5] snapshot with the Exp 1 heel down. Let a chord ring out for a second and switch to one of the Pad [6, 7, or 8] snapshots. Use the Exp 1 to fade the drone in and out as you like. Experiment, have fun!</p> <p>I control the mix of all the Delays and Reverbs with Exp 1, heel down for a more normal sound and toe down for lush reverb and delay goodness. I use an external Exp 2 for the Volume block.</p> <p>I put the Sweeper in because it’s something I’ve always wanted.</p> <p>This stereo preset is for me and my Shuriken 250 Variax.</p> <p>I have the snapshots leveled to around -18db using the Orban Loudness Meter to adjust the level on the path 1 output block. That level is totally arbitrary, I just want everything to be normalized so the sound guy doesn’t have to fiddle with my levels much. So, <I>your milage may vary</I>.</p>
