Complete Factory Restore of Kemper?

  • Same scenario here. I'm looking to purchase a used power head and would like all he global settings and rigs back to factory default. As well as any foot controller settings. I see all the available rig packs on the Kemp site, so I am not concerned about loading rigs back in. How do I wack out any global/system setting and foot controller assignments the previous user may have changed? Thanks!

    Send an email to Kemper support. They will send you the instructions to do so along with a backup file that will reload it back to 100% factory state using the latest official firmware.

    Welcome.

    It’s easy.

    Wipe the machine clean of all the rigs and FX presets (using RigManager).

    Copy the current Kemper Factory Content (rigs and FX presets) over to your machine (again using RigManager).

    On your machine hit INIT GLOBALS (System Menu) and you’re done.

    Oh, and don’t forget to load the latest FW of course.

  • But this is not real full factory reset! The procedure is slightly different for Stage and the other Profilers. So the best is to contact support and they will give you all necessary info + latest content. I did it already for both Stage and Powerrack ant it worked like a charm!

    Why is this not a full factory reset?

    What else do you want to reset?

    I am not an expert but I received different procedure for factory reset from Kemper support and as I already mentioned it is slightly different for Stage and other profilers. It starts with putting Kemper into system maintenance mode. Maybe your scenario do the same but as I said the procedure from support was different. I am afraid I can not say more to the subject.

    Maintenance mode is not easy to get into. It’s only recommended after supports' strict advice.

    Certainly it’s not necessary when you only want to get a clean machine with factory defaults.
