    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.

    My "one-size-fits-MOST" preset for live gigging. Should be used in STOMP MODE. Several items in the path are for specific songs: Auto-WAH is FS4 ("C-top row") and FS8 (A-bottom row) is an auto-swell. Other FX include Tremolo, Chorus, and extra delay. Bottom row B/C/D are all gain increases. D is red and it switches the amps from Litigator to Derailed Ingrid. B is a light-to-medium drive and C is a slightly heavier drive pedal. These can be used with either amp. The baseline is a two-amp set up with a couple of drive pedals for a wide variety of cleans to means. Volume pedal is set AFTER the amps for solo boost (set to 69%-100% range... heel-down is rhythm at 69%, you can adjust post-gain volumes up to 100%. Volume pedal is active as Exp2 until the toe-switch activates the wah. Cabs are dual greenback 25 4X12 and a XXL.V30 4X12. Last thing: there is a split-off path with an EQ. I set up my global settings so that the main output (XLRs) bypass the Helix Volume so my FOH output is NOT affected by the on-board "big volume" knob. The split-off path, goes to the 1/4" output. THIS I take directly to my monitor or in-ears, and it DOES use the big volume. this way I can adjust what I'm hearing in my monitor without the sound guy getting upset. He has complete volume control over FOH levels. Here are a couple of YT clips of this in live use.... excuse the mistakes/clams. Thx.
