    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.

    I've used a stock cab with this, but my personal preference is to use an Ownhammer OH 212 MAR-66 v30-MV-16 MI impulse response instead. The patch is setup like one of Johns pedal boards with a Marshal Jubilee / Major vibe. Distortion for rhythm can be found from DS-2. Sounds great on the neck pickup. OCD can fatten up the clean tone a little bit. Good for scar tissue. Red Squeeze is for the intro to under the bridge. The record is heavily compressed. Fuzz factory and Big muff offer to different tonal options for fuzzy lead combine them together with DS-2, phase 90 and delay for hendrix madness! Clean it up does what it says on the tin. Less gain, more top end. Delay is set to the rhythm tap. Looper is included at the end of the patch so you can lay down some chords and solo over :) Hope you enjoy it.
