    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.

  • Comments: . . . NO IR or CAB is included with this. I use this with a Solid State Power amp (SD Powerstage) through a REAL guitar Cab. This is one of nine presets that I use for gigs and this is optimized for HUMBUCKER Equipped Guitars and simulates a Marshall Plexi amp. It's essentially a very un-frilled tone that is basically just the amp (a Brit Plexi Brt model) with serial Reverb and parallel Delay. Also includes a Wah at the beginning of the chain, and a Volume pedal near the end. It's set up in Stomp/Snap mode with 4 snapshots on the bottom row and effects slots on the upper row. The four Snapshots are "Clean"; "Crunch"; "Drive" and "Lead". The stomps include a Chorus and a Tremolo as well as a "Boost" (gain block). The last "Stomp" (actually the 3rd slot on the top row) is left empty for you to insert any other effects you wish to add. Post amp is a Crossover Split with 2 Gain Blocks to enable tweaking the low end and high end as well as a EQ Block for further tweaking. The LAST block in the Chain is a simple gain block that serves two purposes: First is to provide a way to balance volumes from preset to preset and Snapshot to Snapshot. Second purpose is to be the "sacrificial" block that gets turn off sometimes by a bug when you copy presets from a computer to the Helix. That way, it's only a block that affects a minor amount of volume. easily re-adjusted, too! .
