    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.

    This will immediately give you some great nostalgic vibes, This preset was created for those lonely nights when you want to just kick back, relax, and reminisce about the glory days of good old 80's rock and roll. The CLEAN-2 Snapshot was created by just bypassing the amplifier entirely and adding a light dimensional chorus along with a studio basic compression. The CLEAN-1 Snapshot utilizes the same concept albeit now a tight clean amplifier is now blended ever so slightly into the chain to add a bit less of a "straight into DI" sound that the 1st Snapshot creates. The EDGE Snapshot uses the same signal chain though now the clean amp is well driven to the EDGE of breakup so that you can utilize its full harmonic madness at full volume or you can back off the volume knob to get some nice cleaner tones, also I included a Tube Screamer at the front of the signal path just to add a bit more grit and bite for those lightly saturated lead guitar bits as well. The SOLO Snapshot...well I don't really need to say anymore, it's just more gain, more distortion, more.. well MORE. also included are footswitch settings that include a "Mix" function for both the Reverb and the Chorus, when both are engaged especially for the the SOLO Snapshot, then the Arena shall appear before you. Happy Shredding!
