    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 my version of a modulated "dotted eighth plus quarter note" delay, popularized by U2's The Edge, but used by tons of other artists afterwards. This a direct patch using the Helix cabs and a ribbon mic with proper low/hi cuts applied. The Edge's delay actually comes from a stereo setup with boosts and delay fed into the FRONT of an AC30 or two just on the edge of breakup. What I did was make a mono patch featuring Line 6's "Boost Comp" that gets pretty close using only the 6 blocks. To dial in volume and EQ, adjust the amp controls on the Essex A30. To add gain, I recommend using the "Drive" setting on the Boost Comp, or swtiching on the "Teemah!" overdrive pedal in front of the amp. To add clean sustain and tube like saturation, leave the Drive setting low, but increase the "Comp" setting on the Boost Comp. Reasonable minds can differ on the correct delay to use, but I am running two of the Mod/Chorus Echo blocks in parallel - on handling the dotted eight delay with chorus, and the other with the longer quarter note delays and a subtle vibrato to emulate the array of Memory Man, 2290, and rack units used by The Edge over the years. Feel free to adjust this as you see fit, but I worked with it quite a bit to balance the percussiveness of the dotted eighths with the swirling chorus/vibrato in the background that provides depth. Both delays are synced to the HX Stomp's BPM setting, so they should remain in sync with the tap tempo or BPM adjustments. FS1: Switches between Compression/Clean Tone and Teemah! overdrive FS2: Turns the parallel delay loop completely on or off FS3: Tap Tempo Snapshot 1: Clean, tube-like compression with delay Snapshot 2: Slightly driven tone with delay Snapshot 3: Driven tone with delay off (reverb slightly increased)
