I'm not a PodXt user but you can add some gain of course. If you are talking about pinch harmonics, it's not a matter of "gain treble". Try to use your bridge pickup to get the best result.
Humbuckers are great to get these ones.

Mmm... Maybe some amp simulations have more gain by themselves. You know, a Soldano or a Mesa head should have more gain than an old Fender amp. You can take a look also at the compressor settings if there is one activated.
But, once again, I never used Pods, so we can wait for another answer smile.gif

The first patch tone I used for the PODxt I got this last month, was the Marcus Lavendell one and its the best ive tried so far. I can do harmonics even with the neck pickup, but it always works better with the bridge one. Look for it in the coments of the first Marcus lesson: "Winding Roads" and let us know if that works for you.

As Jerry said, you can also try to test different Compressor Treshold settings.
