    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.

    Here is my take on an All-in-One preset in Stomp/Snap mode using the new 2.30 Trainwreck amp model. I changed out the cab that was tied to the amp for a 2X12 Z-Best (Interstate Zed) cab. Sounds GREAT with this amp! This has a clean, a crunch, a drive, and solo snapshots plus there is a Trem (optical); Chorus (70's), Phaser (Script 90), and a Clean Boost (a gain block set to 3.0dB) on the 4 available stomp slots. I built this with the stomp slots on the upper row and the snaps on the lower row. There is also a Crybaby Wah (weeper) in the chain, as well as the amp's channel volume is controlled by Exp 2 from a "reasonable" volume at the low end of the sweep to a good Lead volume at the extreme toe end. Also included here is the new EP Boost (Kinky Boost) model as an "always on" boost at the beginning of the chain. A Timmy Pedal is always on and adjusts for the crunch snapshot, and a Klon (Minotaur) kicks on for the Drive and Solo Snapshots. Great tones in every snap... the clean has just a little "hair" on it so digging in gets the Clean snap into the beginnings of very light crunch territory. Built with a Rocketfire Telecaster with Arcane Pickups and a QSC K series PA speaker, but it sounds great with 'buckers and P90s too! Haven't tried it yet with a Strat but I imagine it will do well with those lower output single coils, as well. Let me know what you think. This is a great amp model - perfect for these kinds of presets (clean to mean). Soundcloud clip of all the tones here.... https://soundcloud.com/geno-13/helix_trnwrksnap-1
