    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 preset would be useful for those looking for exploring ways to hook up multiple instruments (or one instrument with multiple outputs) to your Helix.In this particular example I'm using 3 instruments: Acoustic Guitar with internal mic on path 1A Emulated Electric Guitar on paths 1B-2A Emulated Bass on path 2B. As most of you know, when using all 4 paths for different instruments, sometimes we can run into lack of DSP problem. So, in this preset I used my most DSP-hungry instrument on paths 1B and 2A in order to get the most of both DSP chips. I have only Reverb and Gain blocks on path 1A for instrument 1, as I don't need anything else in this particular preset, so most of the power from the 1st DSP goes to my instrument 2 (electric guitar). Same thing with path 2B, where I got my Bass, but there's still some power left on DSP 2 for other blocks on path 2A for my electric guitar.
