I've played my kemper live through my bogner 2x12 (v30s) many times and am completely happy with how it sounds..fantastic. Not a compromise at all...and in many ways a delight. Thus far I have always run it this way....as opposed to feeding it into a PA while monitoring it through my bogner.
Recently I went to a practice and did not bring my cab...just plugged in straight into the PA. I was frustrated in that the amp did not seem to roll back the same way that it does through a guitar cab...i.e. with the guitar volume rolled back I would get a tonal clean up (reduction in gain) but did not experience the volume drop that I would anticipate. Not sure I am articulating it right, but the bottom line is that I did not feel in control of my tone through the guitar in the same way that I do when playing it through my bogner.
This lends me to not feel comfortable that the Kemper through a PA will sound anything like what I hear through the cab, were I to play it live this way.
Does anyone experience this?
Does anyone have suggestions on what I might need to do or explore setting wise in order to correct this?
The issue was not cab simulation being turned off for the PA feed, so eliminate that thought.
Anyhow, appreciate any comments. Thanks!
