    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.

    The concept here is a "3 Channel" amp. It is an "all nighter" patch with a ton of tones and flexibility at the ready. It sits more in the clean-to-classic rock tones, with a more "grindy" transparent feel. It's not a very high gain patch. Ok - we start with an input compressor on FS 7. There are two amp models that share a single Cab (2x12). The first (Fender Twin) is on Path 1 and the second (DC30) is on Path 2. When FS 10 is OFF - wither Ch 1 or 2 will play. Toggle between Ch1 and Ch2 with FS 8. A Cleanish boost for Ch1 and 2 is on FS 9. This "Channel switch" is done with a number of controller assignments and addition of a KLON. When you engage FS10, Channel 3 is engaged - the Twin amp and its associated is bypassed and the DC30 is engaged (it also gets a different reverb). You can add a TS808 in front of that. The top row of FS adds a number of effects. Hate the DC30? Just change the amp model to taste. Modify the high gain HI cut with the EQ block right after the amp in path 2. Have fun!
