    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.

    *FIRMWARE 3.60* I created this patch to get close to the sounds of Def Leppard's Hysteria album. There are a ton of great Rockman X100 IR's however many of them (if not all) are very hissy (as it was originally). While this patch is not a replica, it's pretty darn close. </P> Below are the Snaps that work great for my guitar rig.</P> Snap 1 - Sparkle Clean. Closely mimic's the clean sounds on this album near a X100.</P> Snap 2 - Gritty Clean. Darker clean tone with break up when guitar volume cranked, cleans up when rolled back.</P> Snap 3 - Dual Gtr's. Used to play both clean and distorted guitar parts.</P> Snap 4 - Heavy Gain. While there is no JMP1, the Line 6 2204 Mod does acgreat job on the "heavier" parts.</P> Below is a list of songs on the album and suggested Snaps for each song.</P> Woman: Snap 4, Snap 2</P> Rocket: Snap 2, Snap3</P> Animal: All Snaps</P> Love Bites: Snap 1, Snap 3 & Snap 4</P> Pour Some Sugar on me: Snap 4</P> Armageddon it: Snap3 & Snap4</P> God Of War: Snap 3 & 4</P> Don't Shoot the Shot Gun: Snap4 but think Snap 3 w/ Stomp on Tube Screamer sounds better.</P> Run Riot: Snap 3 with Tube Screamer and Snap4 for the gritty parts.</P> Hysteria: Snap 1, Snap 3 for Pre Chorus, Stomp on Tube Screamer for Chorus parts.</P> Excitable: Snap 3 + Tube Screamer + Flanger</P> Love And Affection: Snap3</P> My Guitar Setup: Basswood Ibanez, X2n Bridge, HS-2 Middle & PAF Pro Neck with Series, Parallel, Split Coils and Out of Phase. So, for those that have a similar setup, you can really take advantage of the tones. For those that don’t, you will have to tweak.</P> NO Aftermarket IR's
