    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.

    This is IA´s main presets for live and studio work. The preset contains 3 snapshots. Snapshot 1, IA FREAK is the preferred tone for his 6-string guitar and the main tone used live with Freak Kitchen. Snapshot 2, IA DELAY is used mainly for lead and melody lines. Snapshot 3, IA METAL is the main tone for the 8-string guitar and used on the Helix artist profile video on the Line6 YouTube channel. The 1st and 2nd snapshots uses the same blocks, but with small changes to amp and EQ block settings as well as adding a delay for solo playing. The 3rd snapshot IA METAL is IA´s preferred tone for the 8-string and uses a different amp model.
