    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.

    Built this to do a full gig on a single preset for cover band tunes. STOMP MODE (no snapshots). Also this is in "split output" configuration. Set up your outputs so that the main signal path out is on XLR and the path that splits out near the end (with only an EQ block) is set to 1/4". In Global Settings set 1/4" out to use the large volume knob, and set the XLR out to BYPASS the volume knob. This allows XLR to FOH for direct, while 1/4" can be used to your monitor and you have control over the monitor volume. Also, the Expression Pedal is used with Heel position at 70% and Toe position at 100%. This gives you rhythm levels at heel and varying degrees of solo boost up to 100% using the pedal with no need to activate it. Pushing the volume pedal past heel position gradually increases midrange on the amp, and feedback / mix on the delay for a better lead tone. A 2nd delay can be activated for longer delays - this is also set to turn OFF the 1st delay. Other effects included for specific songs in my set list: - Auto Swell (for a few Fleetwood Mac songs, namely "Dreams" - Chorus - Tremolo - Auto Filter (set up for "Auto Wah" type sounds for "What I Am" solo and intro to "Waterfalls"). Overdrive Pedals in succession: Light, Medium, Heavy (and can be stacked as needed): - Minotaur - Dhyana Drive - Compulsive Drive
