    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.

    Made with the 2.20 firmware, I wanted to see if the Obsidian distortion would work as a light fuzz effect. I've been chasing Dean's sound, and the real world pedal I think comes closest is the Park Fuzz, which is fuzz for people who don't like a lot of fuzz. I used an old STP patch that one of the Line 6 product reps put out over a year ago ( as the basis and re-engineered it for Snapshots. I use the 'SS bottom, stomps on top' setup to blend in elements of a Vox AC30 and a Park to get close to Dean's sound. The winner in this, IMO, is the Obsidian as the light fuzz on SS3 (Drive). It adds a little hair while retaining a lot of note definition as Dean doesn't go with standard power chords very often. The patch was made with a 1986 Schecter PT Tele with dual humbuckers, any not-too-hot bucker should get you there. No IRs necessary. The send/return is for my Digitech Trio. You can get rid of those with no consequences
