    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.

    Second of a few Gig-Ready patches built to have a nice ambient clean tone, a slightly crunchy (hairy cleanish), a light overdriven tone and a heavier overdriven tone in one preset. Built using "Stomp/Snap" mode (4 stomps on top row, 4 snaps on bottom row). Based on the AC30 (Fawn Nrm) through a dual 2X12 setup (2X12 Celestion Blues and 2X12 Celestion G12H30s) and with Single Coils or Low-Output humbuckers in mind as a source. The cabs are blended with a distant ribbon mic and a closer dynamic mic for a good balance of lows and highs. Tweaking the cab levels is a great way to tweak this patch for use with different guitars. Clean is very "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" sounding rhythm. Crunch is more along the lines of "Jenny Jenny", and the two levels of overdrive are classic rock crunch to heavy solo style distortion - but all very "Voxy Sounding". The 4 stomps are: Harmonic Tremolo, Simple Pitch (set for a very light "chorusy" sound"), Harmonic Flanger, and a Lead Boost based on the EP Boost pedal (Kinky Boost). As with all my patches this is built using a QSC K series FRFR at gig volumes.
