    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 is my simplified tone used to reproduce a hang that I am hitting on the HELIX Floor with my Line 6 JTV-59 James Tyler Variax guitar. To reproduce the hang, quickly turn the volume knob on the Variax guitar up and down, five times in a row. Then the HELIX will not respond to any button presses. The tone uses dual amps and maps the volume knob of the Variax guitar to each amp's drive and channel volume settings, such that as the guitar volume knob increases, the drive goes up and the volume comes down to compensate. The idea is that you get varying degrees of drive at a constant volume -- although for this simple repro I just used +- 1.0 from the default settings that come up on the first two amps in the HELIX. I've used this technique successfully for several tones, but I found when applying this technique to a dual amp tone that I purchased from Line6 Marketplace, that HELIX Floor hangs. I'm using the latest HELIX and Variax Firmware (3.6 and 2.23 respectively). Some things I've noticed: - If I map the settings to the tone knob instead, I can't reproduce the problem. - If I map the settings to the expression pedal, I can't reproduce the problem.
