    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.

    Use this tone for the intro, chorus solo. This tone uses the modelled Diezel VH-4 which Mark uses in the studio with the live settings dialled in he uses on his Mesa Engineering Triple Rectofier. This is atop the 4x12 Treadplate cab as Mark favours Mesa Engineering cabs for studio live. A.I.R. uses the 67 condenser at 50 to let the cab breathe get a full range tone. The 4x12 Treadplate has a tendancy to slightly muddy the sound. A brighter fuller tone has been cajolled from the cab by using the modeled Ibanez TS-808 Tube Screamer stomp box colour fullness is produced by adding the sine chorus. For the solo, activate the Wah which uses the chrome model. Finally, compression noise gate keeps this beast under control while Digital Delay subtley provides a little extra layer to the tone with the high end being tweaked on the EQ. Go to www.mark as a good reference for his gear.
