I'm quoting someone, remember? I have been a Kemperian for about a day and a half now. I was warned of the addictive nature of auditioning profiles so I agree as my fingers are nearly bleeding. I thought my guitar callouses had gone to hell until I picked up my bass and then I was worn out fast.
The first afternoon I spent Kemperizing, the multitude of profiles overwhelmed me. I was honestly going back and forth between being blown away and thinking some were very ordinary sounding. I've come to believe that every profile is a work of art, but if you walk into an art museum, you don't like everything, in fact in many museums you don't like most, but there are a few that stand out and make life worth living.
Today I did some profiling on my own. Since I'm still sorting the controls and navigating my Profiler, I just did direct profiles of my Cream Machine and my customized Boogie Mark IV. The Boog has such a good recording out that I quit micing it on stage long ago because it just sounds so excellent and made things easier. The Boog profiles came out to where I couldn't tell the difference (and doing the direct thing makes it so easy to compare!) With the Cream Machine, I did my very first profile with it powering a 12" Celestion and miced it with a Sennheiser 441, both controls at noon. Then I did two direct profiles with it's cabitnitulator out with much higher gain. These came out completely convincing and if I can just capture my stuff and find a few gems from others I will be in a new sonic heaven! I think once I start micing up speakers, things will become much more interesting.
At any rate, I am very happy and look forward to hanging with you folks and discussing this amazing invention!
Oh yeah, are you suppose to register or something? What do I need and where do I go?
