    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.

    ***NOW WITH IMPROVEMENT TWEAKS ADDED*** A (IMO) fun preset that offers everything from clean to cranked Marshall with a filthy fat fuzz tone available too. For added japes, there's 2 octave down pitch shift footswitch #momentary to give you all the Black Keys lurching "Lonely Boy" mayhem you could wish for, a cool and eminently usable Double Tank reverb plus two Exp pedals; Exp1 set as a mad switchless oscillating tape delay and Exp2 set as a screaming switchless wah. I DEFY any human to use this and not make the wah face. I’ve also included are a swishy flanger, a couple of other delays, and to battle those social distancing blues, a 6 switch looper for self-accompanying noodling antics. Sadly, I have yet to find an option for a decent coffee machine, popcorn maker or smoke machine but I can deliver a veritable CASCADE of coloured lights, most likely enough to commune with Uranus (oh, you went there) via those stupendoideous glorificated footswitches. DISCLAIMER: there are NO IRs or Cabs in this preset. AMP: US Double Norm EFFECTS intel: [Always on – Simple Delay and Kinky Comp], Exp1 (Bypass and controller) = Transistor Tape ***now edited to a max of 70% feedback via Exp1 to remove background signal noise oscillation - thanks Hank!*** Exp2 (Bypass and controller) = Throaty Wah, OCT 2Down = Simple Pitch (momentary), LEADTS8 = Scream808, Zen GAIN = Dhyana Drive, FAT FUZZ = Arbitrator Fuzz+EQ High and Low cut, LUSH DELAY = Vintage Delay, CoolVERB = Double Tank, Grey Flanger, Bleat Chop Trem, 6 Switch Looper, Mighty Ninja Warrior Cat
