    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.

    In designing this patch (done through headphones, Audio Technica ATHM50X) I wanted to try and emulate both the tone and the behaviour of a 1974 6-input AC30TB that I used to have. Too many AC30 patches are overdone with too much gain, compression and reverb and I wanted to try and create something that was more 'real' and 'in the room'- I wanted that 'open' full 'bell-like' sound you get with single coils with a hint of break up as you hit the strings hard. And with a humbucker or P90's you get that great Vox AC30 'compressed' drive. These old 6-input amps had no master volume and no built in reverb. AC30's are loud amps, especially with Alnico Blues, and you can't get the gain without the volume, so I've designed this patch to bahave like a real AC30. On my 611 I used the middle pup position with coil-tap engaged. Features: There are 4 snapshots. For each if you rock back the volume pedal, it will progressively add more gain and volume just like an older real AC30 will do when you crank it. I've intentionally limited the max gain to be more realistic - AC30's are not intended to be high gain amps, and you've got the Teemah distortion to kick in a wee bit more if you need it. Snap1: Basic tone Just the amp, EQ and a little room reverb Snap 2: As per Snap 1 with Dynamic Studio comp to add a wee bit more breakup with a slight volume lift Snap 3: As per snap 2 with just a little Teemah Distortion for a little bit more 'oomph'. Snap 4: as per snap 3 but with a little Transistor Tape delay to add a bit more ambience. (You can of course just use stomp switches to experiment with different combinations). If you want to globally reduce the patch volume, reduce the Output main out - I've set it to +6.4dB. I hope you like it but do let me know what you think. (I haven't yet figured out how to record samples, sorry)
