    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.

    Okay, last of the 3-Channel Archon presets. This is the highest gain of the three (previous were "ArchClean" and "ArchCrnch"). This one is based on the Archon Lead channel (Archetype Lead) using a 4X12 Blackback 30 Cab. Baseline mid-gain-ish tone is primarily the amp with a Klon in front. FS10 is a 'Hi Gain' button that bump up the Klon's gain and several amp parameters to push the drive into near metal territory. FS11 is a Lead Boost that uses some extra gain and level from the KLON and adds some delay time and level on the Vintage Digital Delay. A noise gate block at the start keeps this one quite even with the extra drive engaged. Light Reverb (63 Spring) that is further reduced when the lead boost is kicked on and some light compression (LA Studio Comp) in front of the amp for smooth driven tones. Let me know what you think. This was built with a '92 LP Studio with Seth Lover pickups (but it sounds KILLER with all my guitars) and into a QSC K-Series speaker. Gig-Ready volume setting on this one too.
