    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.

    Based on the Premiere Guitar Rig Rundown (, I matched Tim's clean and dirty amps, A Mesa Mark V clean channel and a Bogner Uberschall for dirty. This is set up as Stomp/Snaps (top/bottom) and 10-pedal mode and made with a PRS SC245. the 4 Snaps are basic clean and dirty, and then spacier versions of each. This uses stock dual cabs and everything is fairly self-explanatory. EXCEPT, FS9 is labelled Infinite Repeat. It's a momentary switch, so when you press and hold, it raises the Mix of whatever Delay you have engaged AND hold the Feedback at 100% (if one is not on, it doesn't do anything). You can get some great feedback going with this trick. The Uber isn't set for really high gain, just dirty crunch. The Timmy and 808 pedals can make your tone sharper and more distorted without going into metal territory. Feedback welcome. [Note: if the Timmy and 808 sound thin while using the clean channels - well.... yeah. It's a balancing act, since they're not really meant to be used to augment the clean. I'm working on a solution, but I'm limited to 10 stomps and I'm pushing the DSP. I have ideas, but give me a few days.]
