    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.

  • Comments:
    This is specifically designed for the James Tyler Variax series and demonstrates cross-fading between an acoustic modelled guitar (12 string) and the magnetic pickups using a dual channel approach from both the JTV and the HD500. It’s not specifically for any song as such and is a work in progress, but you might find it useful. The Pan controls are currently set to Centre for use with a mono rig, but for routing the acoustic sound to the PA and the electric sound to a standard guitar amp you can easily pan the channels hard left and hard right and route the HD500 outputs accordingly. My JTV acoustic 12 string presets have been modified in WorkBench to be less ‘jangly’ and less detuned than at default! These are settings held in the guitar itself and are not part of this HD500 preset.
