    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:
    I did a good bit of research putting this patch together. Starting from the beginning of the chain. Compressor: Cory did a video with UAD walking through how he gets his tone with some plugins, the LA Studio Compressor seemed to be the right option to mimic those settings on. Drives: Cory uses his signature JA Optimist, which is a Timmy/Klon style. I didn't do much tweaking of these, but they are there for you to dial in to your taste. Amp: Cory uses a Solid State DV Eric Gales Raw Dawg amp, so I chose to replicate it with the JC-120. He runs 2 of them at slightly different settings, so I dialed in the amps to compliment one another. Cab: It seems like Cory is most commonly using cabs with EV12's, so I selected a pair of Open Cast 1x12's and put a 57 on one and 121 on the other. Others: I love some wet effects, so there is a Phaser, Reverb, and Delay available. I'll typically leave the Dynamic Room verb on very lightly just for a touch of space. I hope you enjoy the patch!
