    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.

    v2 - This is the Litigator, named after Line 6's own - the creator of the sound. This is my catch-all rock patch, but I made it with Mike McCready and Stone Gossard generally in mind. I can play almost anything with this. My Helix is setup as Stomp/Snap, BUT, I made this with the idea that I'd pick a Snap that matches the general level of dirt I need for a song/show and then go into 10-stomp mode and use this as a pedalboard. The IR is the free Line 6/Allure US Deluxe. Note the Ram Fuzz (BP) - BP means bypass. I use the Ram as a smooth fuzz for chording (though the Xotic Boost makes it more Muff-y if you want to go psycho with it) - but the FS does not control the Ram. That's always on. Instead, it controls the A/B switch so I can jump onto the Ram for a solo whenever I want, and then hit the FS a second time and go back to rhythm. The VCR is an attempt to get into the area of the JHS Pedals model that they made for Ryan Adams. It's swirly and 80's. Obviously, feel free to change this around for your needs. I made this on an 86 Schecter PT with splittable Superrock pickups into a Tech 21 Power Engine. I like this a lot. Feedback appreciated.
