after using the KPA for three years in the studio and for one year live, I´d like to share my list of feature requests. I´m sure most of them have been mentioned already.
Here we go:
stomp/FX slots are few on the Kemper, so I´d like to suggest a studio EQ built into the amp and/or cab section. Preferably to be set pre or post amp section.
-an additional delay which can be freely placed in every slot I wish to (the only additional FX unit in my live rig is a line6 delay....)
-a spring reverb
-some more fuzz boxes, octave fuzz. I know the already available fuzzes can be shaped with EQ and Recti Shaper. But using three slots to get a fuzz right????
I suggest another menue page for all drive/dist/fuzz effects with an EQ, and another page for fuzz effects with the recti shaper
-bypassing loop FX should mute the input! Right now the return is muted, so echo or reverb tails are cut of.
Fot the DELAY and REVERB slots there´s a midi bypass command to let the tails ring out. The loop FXs should have such a command, too!
on my lunchbox Kemper the LEDs show the settings of the EQ. To see these settings on my rack Kemper without the LEDs I have to turn the the knobs. This is very inconvenient!
How about including the value in the display? Instead of
Bass Middle Treble Presence
we should have
B: <0.0> M: <0.0> T: <0.0> P: <0.0>
the volume setting should be visible at the fist sight, too - but where? V: <0.0>
in performance mode I´d like to see the complete signal chain like in browser mode. I can never tell which effects are in the slots.
These are my main concerns.....had some more trouble with FX loop and monitoring through the Kemper getting in the way of each other,but I stopped monitoring through the Kemper and let our monitor man sending me my inEar signal.
Thanks for your attention - show some support if you agree with my requests!
