    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.

    Using what is available in the HX Effects, and working from the Premier Guitar Rig Rundown, I tried to recreate Mark Speer's (Khruangbin) pedalboard as closely as possible. Pedal order is as follows (no snapshots are currently implemented): Noise Gate > Teardrop 310 (Dunlop Crybaby Fasel) > Pebble Phaser (ILO Boss PH-3) > Deez One Vintage (Boss DS-1) > Red Squeeze (MXR Dyna Comp Mini) > '63 Spring (ILO EHX Holy Grail) > Transistor Tape (ILO Strymon El Capistan). Settings on most of these effects were taken from the Premier Guitar Rig Rundown although a second Teardrop 310 was added in the pedal chain. The first Teardrop 310 is open and set to remain on while the second Teardrop 310 was added only in case an additional expression pedal was added to my rig in order to control wah and delay feedback separately. I would recommend removing one Teardrop 310 if you have two expression pedals and setting one expression pedal to control delay feedback and one expression pedal to control wah (with the wah always set to on and the cocked position when not in use). This pedalboard setup was created using a Fender Stratocaster, with a Seymour Duncan Hot Rail in the bridge, through a Headrush 112 FRFR with my Khruangbin HX Stomp amp settings found here
