    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.

    Haven't done an upload for a while, anyhow today I was messing with all these updated reverbs in the v2.6 Firmware when I came up with this. I had my very old Variax on Acoustic1 and a Volume pedal then went on a noodling around expedition. This patch rather put me in mind of the track "Free Fall" from the "Atmospheric Conditions" album by John Themis. If you are unaware of the track check it out here: My preset is a very quick and dirty thing I came up with and is probably nothing even close to Free Fall but its a freebie for the ambient fans to edit. Enjoy. Note: I think there is a bug in the v2.6 update that screws up the Variax Global and Per Preset Settings so you will need to make sure you are on Acoustic1, or even use a real acoustic. I'm gonna try this with my Gordon Giltrap Vintage. That is when I can be remember to bring it to the studio. Now I will take the JTV59 out of it's case and try the preset with that. Have fun!
