    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.

    Ok I'm going to remind everyone I'm playing through an amp that has all the knobs turned to 5 and so it mite sound different to you if you arent doing the same. For Parabol just turn your guitar down to about 2 and make sure your tone knob is turned to 0(for both songs). You should get the sorta clean sound he has for Parabol. For Parabola just turn your guitar all the way up while keeping the tone at 0.(turn delay off) Gives you that nice fat distortion. During Adam's solos turn both Wah and delay on. At the end of the song do what you do in Parabol and then turn the tone knob to 10 when that last part is very clean. I'm surprised that a lot of people try to do a lot of effects on here that you can do just on your guitar. Adam Jones actually does this during shows and recording for cds so try it out for yourselves. Hope this works for you(sorry for the long explaining)
