heres the settings he uses as a starting point:

So what you need is POD XT PRO (with Metal Pack), POD X3 or POD FARM  PLATINUM and an EQ plugin (pretty much any will do). Then the signal  chain is pretty simple: POD -> EQ -> Guitar group

POD settings:
Stomp: Tube Screamer
- gain 75
- drive 15
- tone 50
Amp: MS-Diamondplate ("Cali Diamond Plate" in Podfarm Platinum)
- drive: "amp gain around the breaking point of too much crunch on  chugs. have the guitarist chug over and over again, make sure he's doing  a good chug. then slowly turn the gain up until it sounds edgy enough"
- bass mids and treble: ~50% (mix to taste)
- presence: ~60%
Cab: 4x12 Threadplate
- condencer mic (67)
- room 0%

Channel EQ settings:
EQ (always): Highpass 50-100hz, Lowpass 12khz
EQ (threadplate cab specific): cut at 800hz, cut at 4khz
EQ (suggestions): Boost between 300-400hz, boost 5-8khz for clarity

And thats it! (might require you to use a noise gate before screamer pedal)

and heres the actual patch:
