• Kempermaniac nailed it. There's no reverse delay or reverb.


    Delays and reverbs are one of those things that always are in the feature requests, yet seem to get overlooked by Kemper quite a bit. That being said, another voice in the crowd is never a bad thing. Make a post over in Feature Requests, and include this video. In the meantime, you can always put a pedal like this in the FX loop. If you upgrade to something like a Strymon Timeline or Eventide Timefactor, you can even control what patches are set (including reverses and those beautiful Stymon Ice delays) via MIDI in performance mode.

  • Hello,


    Instead of creating a new thread I will ask my question here :


    If I am not mistaken the Delay back then were not updated yet. Is there a way today to achieve this kind of psychedelic sound ?


    I read the doc and the reverse setting is global but I don't know if it is meant to be used like this or just to reverse the echo.


    Or maybe the best way to do it would be in my DAW.


    Anyone ?

  • This thread died five years ago. In the meantime the delays and reverbs were completely overhauled.


    And you are not just limited to a reversed delay. You can just continuously mix in Reverse within various delay effect types. It's all in the Main Manual starting on page 194.


    I think the current manual is a better source of information than a five years old thread.

  • Again I read, the manual, I just have difficulty to reproduce the kind of sound posted in the video.

    The only info I found in the manual is the reverse setting which in my case seem to reverse only the echo.

    Do you have any tip to replicate this kind of sound ?

  • Try setting the both the mix and reverse mix controls to 100% wet. You can't tell in the video above because you can see the player's hands, but there is a delay between what they play and when that sound comes out in reverse.

    Im having the same issue as Playmo77.. only the echos seem to reverse and not the whole portion of incoming material.. playing a scale fast upwards with a high delay time (2000ms) should reverse what happens during the 2000ms (so the processed reversed signal would produce the scale playing downwards..) or? Thats what the Danelectro pedal seems to do in the clip above and what Strymon Timeline also can do.

    Of cause one can use the efx loop for an external efx (if nothing else is already there), but one main point about the Kemper (at least for me) is to have an all in one solution (and leave the pedals at home:-)

  • Our reverse delay folows the same principle as most other reverse delays.


    If the whole phrase gets reversed instead, this introduces a few timing challenges for the player. Could you show us examples of a reverse phrase delay used in musical context? We don't intend to add effect types, which are only nice in theory.;)

    The reverse phrase function that is built in the kemper looper is exactly what StrawberryMoose is asking for, and frankly it is something I would love as well! Timing challenges with reverse delay isn't the point. The whole point isn't to play the lick/riff perfectly, but to have a sorta of warped, reversed playback of what you played. It would be even better is there was a WET/DRY mix to the reverse delay as well to have it mesh OR clash with the riff the use is playing. I attempted to play around with the reverse delay options on the delay and I couldn't get the delay to that point either. Unless I am doing something wrong... it was most disappointing.

    cut to 3:50 to see the example.
    Here's an example how reverse delay can be used in a creative sense ->


    As someone who dives in the deep end of noise / weird effects this would be a neat feature to have and it seems like it is built in the kemper already! I have many presets that I created that are just made to introduce noise/weird sound FX. That is one of the things I wish Kemper would focus on.. expanding their fx section to be a bit more exploratory/wild/noisey.. I know it's not the typical norm for most guitarists/bassists.. but it's not like both aren't mutually exclusive. So far I am surprised at what type of weird noise/weird guitar effects I can create with the kemper. Hopefully Kemper continues on supporting that with future patch updates and so forth.
