I now own a Line 6 Toneport UX1, a Variax 700 and a pocket pod and I love all their stuff. I really do.

I just wondered if anyone knows a quick way to brake down all the stupid names they give to their effects and tones. I mean - I know what kind of sound Im looking for sometimes but when you go to find it its hard because your browsing through the names Line 6 have given to them - such as Rusty Spring, Badge, insane, Bottle, Nashville, Mr Clean, Sandman etc...Anyone know of a reference to brake these crap names down?

Did you check their website? They might have some useful info
Gear:
ESP/LTD EC1000 (w/ EMG 81 and 60)
ESP/LTD H500 (w/SD Custom 5 and 59)
Fender MIM Strat (basically my first. Never play it.)
Traynor YCV80 4x10
Peavey 6505 2x12 combo

Half Stacks are OVER-Rated

Just break down the obvious first, like Mr clean isn't going to be a heavy overdriven tone.
I guess you might need to try some out, and see what you can find through that.

They choose their names so they don't get sued for copyright infringement, and I guess they just got creative. Mr Clean = Matchless DC, Sandman = Mesa Triple Rec, Nashville = Fender Tweed, probably a Bassman, etc.

How about listening to them and deciding what the best way to use them is yourself?
Actually called Mark!

i know that mr clean is a killswitch engage setting- for clean obviously
and my spider 3 has sandman settings "clnman" and "mtlman" which are for enter sandman, clean and metal sound.
and most of the other ones you listed are probably just band or song presets

all their info manuals tell you eXACTLY WHICH GUITAR ITS MADE AFTER JUST READ AROUND ABIT

line 6 settings are usually based around song titles, like badge is the setting that sounds like cream's "badge"

personally i thinks it's pretty dumb to use presets when you can make your own, especially with all the insane combinations that you can make. why sound like someone else when you can sound unique? you really limit yourself by using presets and end up sounding like everyone else who uses the same presets.

Where's the information you got with them when you purchased? The Variax 700 booklet goes page for page on what everything is and my POD XTL has a listing in the back of it's "operations manual" on what means what. My XTL doesn't have those specific names in it.

Actually, it's just a clean tone. Nothing to do with that horrible mallcore band.
