    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.

    Stevie Hillside Village - the Submarine Captain and Octave Doctor plus the Glorious OM Riff. Searching For The Spark! This is a bit of a cheat because my research shows that Steve used a pair of Vox AC30's in stereo and a Revox A77 tape deck for the ping pong delay fx (earlier days an echoplex and later a Korg SE500 DDL). Also when working with Rodd Tungsten on the album "L" he used an early version of the Eventide Harmoniser as part of what became his trademark sound. I haven't been able to recreate that here so I stuck in a generic chorus. Steve used a unique/custom built phase pedal by Wing (no chance of finding one of those so it the usual Script used here). Steve had an odd collection of guitars in the 70's - the DiMarzio equipped Fish Rising SG Junior, the stripped finish '57 Strat and an old Les Paul. Please feel free to chop this around to get what you need and post your experiments back here. Have lots of DDL fun from way before the Irish boy came along. Enjoy! Zero the Hero. Steve's FX List from the "Open" Tour - Boss CE-1 Chorus, MXR Distortion +, Colorsound Wah, Schaller Volume Pedal, S Hawk Equalizer (x2), MXR Noise Gate, Mutron Octave Divider, Muton IIIEnvelope Filter, Electro-Harmonix Electric Mistress Flanger, Revox A77 tape deck (for echo FX + Varispeed) plus a Korg SE500 stage echo
