Nah, they provide some backing tracks. I bought guitar port yesterday, tried it out and didn't like high-gain sounds all that much (in headphones). Low gain sounds are pretty cool tho, but it doesn't do Fender properly. Compressor and chorus don't have enough flexibility in them. There's only two reverb types (spring, room). I think I'll take it back tomorrow. While to my ears its tones are better than those in POD, it's not quite there yet. I even liked PODxt more than this (it has 2 more amp models that seemed usable for me). There's so much potential behind this thing, I can't believe Line 6 isn't interested in using it at all. It seems that they're degrading the feature set and the quality for their XTs and Vettas to sell better. It'd teach them something if someone wrote some more sophisticated software for this thing.
