    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.

    a mix of djent with metal amps and plexi to make the single notes standout. this is perfect for palm mute and string note riffs, I made the notes stand fat instead of thin, took me 4 months to get it right, the flanger works as an EQ to tone down the midrange of fat notes and give the upper low pass tone, the eq is set to accentuate other midrange tones that cant happen in the amp. foe the lead use exp pedal forward position, for the riff, lower you exp pedal. set all on controllers if you can, left for riff and right for the lead. I place a dry delay for min dept on the lead and duckling rev for the riff and lead, so that the notes only decay after played and not between. hope you like it, perfect for normal tuning and to sound like modern metal or djent. for more dept, increase the mix on the delay from 40 to 44 on controllers if you wish and the wowflt on the delay to 40% and reverb mix to 45 for a more steve vai lead
