    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.

    Cantor norte americano dos anos 50 que teve sua carreira interrompida bem no começo devido a queda do avião que tambem levava Buddy Holy e The Big Bopper. Em aproximados 2 anos de atividade Valens teve seu grande hit, "La Bamba", exaustivamente tocado nas rádios fazendo com que o hype do recém nascido rock n' roll ganhasse os ouvidos da juventude da época. Para este patch usei o preamp "Small Tweed" que era bem utilizado na época com a caixa 1x8" e coloquei também o Lux Reverb que é um reverb de mola mas tentei não deixar ele tão em evidência a ponto de comprometer o som original. Utilizei a clássica "La Bamba", "Come On, Let's Go", "Donna" e "We Belong Together" como base pra demo do som.
