    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 Preset 3 of an experiment I am conducting. This preset is intended to be played around 100db. These were created on my QSC K8.2 and Helix Floor running firmware 2.91. Nothing special, but all of them have a similar Parametric EQ block. The Parametric EQ is set up so that the Low Gain, Mid Gain, and High gain act as a standard 3 band EQ: Bass, Mid, Treble. If you leave them all at 0 there will be no change (except for the low and high cuts I've put in place). As they are saved, I am happy with them using my guitars and my ears. Tonestack knobs have been messed with, as well as our 3 band Parametric EQ. Start by normaling the gain on the PEQ (bring the Gain level to 0). Experiment by changing the Bass, Mid, Treble, and Presence of the Amp model's tone stacks to change your tone while the Parametric EQ's gains are normaled. See If you can get into a happy place without the EQ. Now bring the tonestack knobs to 5 and instead use the Parametric EQ to shape your tone and see if you can get to a happy place with that. You can save alternate copies of the preset or use snapshots to compare the differences. What do you find? Which do you have an easier time with? What are some differences you've found between using the amp knobs vs the EQ block?
