I was perusing one of xpennos threads earlier and it made me think about the monitor/ no cab output.
Mr Kemper stated that even with the cabs sims switched off in the monitor section (via the soft switch) a portion of the cab sim is retained to give the impression of changing cabs even while using a power amp and guitar cab.
Whilst this may be very useful to many, it would I reckon be just as useful to many others to be able to switch it off completely in the monitor outs while keeping the cab sim on the main outputs.
Try this for a test.
Load up one of the direct profiles. (there are some Mesa mk 5 ones or my afd100 or evh ones.
Connect a power amp and guitar cab to the monitor out. Ensure you have selected cabs off in the monitor section
Play the profile.
Now switch off the cab section. Nothing happens (naturally, its a direct profile with no cab)
Now then change the cab to any of the others on the KPA.
There is a difference. Even though the monitor section has cabs turned off a small amount of the cab profile can be heard.
Although this is probably a good thing in many cases, there may be instances where you want it off completely.
Certainly there are many summer festival gigs my band plays at where you turn up with an amp and there is a cab on stage already miced up. Would be nice to plug into that for monitoring and get the fully direct sound and just tell the sound man to use your main outs (with the cabs on) direct to the desk. Hell, he might even mix in a bit of the miced signal.
I reckon it would be a major improvement if we have the option of a total cab bypass in the monitor section.
Anyone with me?
