This ***STEREO*** patch is for the Don Felder's solo parts of the Eagles famous hit “Hotel California” (studio album released December 8, 1976). It is expected to be played with a v2.10 JTV Lester pos 1 with the tone knob set at 100%, connected through VDI to a v2.31 HD500, XLR'ed direct to PA (2 channels). Set input1=variax, input2=same. Don Felder used a '59 Les Paul sunburst, plugged into a '50s Tweed Deluxe, a narrow-paneled model (probably a '55 or '56). However this patch uses the "Treadplate Pre" instead. On the last solo segment, the "Smart Harmony" comes in (activated with FS2), with varying scale and key, implemented through the HD500 exp-2. More specifically, the harmony starts as "B minor harmonic scale" for the first 2 chords (Bm+F#), then changes to "A major" for the next 2 chords (A, E) and returns back to "B minor harmonic" for the rest of the chords sequence. For Joe Walsh'es parts, use For the (small) B pentatonic minor part use See actual live performance on this link: ____Your comments are welcome on ___

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.
