    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.

  • Comments:
    "Luca designed this preset to work well with a semi-hollow guitar, or a slightly darker sounding neck pickup for jazz, acid jazz or fusion styles. The preset consists of three snapshots moving from clean to crunch. The signal chain consists of compressor, overdrive, delay and reverb, with an additional EQ block and volume pedal placed after the amp and overdrive blocks as to not push the breakup of the amp, but only the output volume. The amp is the A30 Fawn which is Luca´s preferred choice for an analogue amp and the cab is a dual setup with two different mics to achieve the sounds he hears in his head. You might also notice the little hint of the red, white and green stomp LED´s representing the Italian flag. The preset is designed to be fully compatible between Helix and HX by being limited to only eight blocks."
