    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.

    Snapshot 1 = Clean Intro Snapshot 2 = Main rhythm sound Snapshot 3 = Wah Solo Snapshot 4 = Kirk’s cleanish wah for the intro. This patch can be used for pretty much any Metallica song. I designed this tone to be used in the FX return of your amp, hence why the cab block is off (but you could turn this on if you liked). Ideally the clean would be using a Roland Jazz Chorus amp as James uses, but as this patch uses snapshots I could only use one amp – hence the clean is a little hot – gotta love the Mesa amp though! I used a Klon pedal as an overdrive as James used to use one before they went all digital with their rigs. If the sound is a little bright for your tastes lowering the presence and treble control on the amp should do the trick. Metallica is my favourite band – playing along to their songs is amazing fun!
