I am pretty new to the Kemper. Before it I had a line6 pod x3 live and an engl VS.
After almost two weeks I am getting warmer with it and have found a couple of profiles that I can build on. I found these completely on accident after I didn’t like any of the high gain amps I was recommended. And this is where my question kicks off: How do you build your sounds if you have a specific sound in mind?
I want to give two examples:
1) Of course, it would be ideal for me, if I could keep playing hat sweet, sweet Engl. I searched for it and found that someone had profiled 6 versions of it. However, I do not have any context for these, or do I? What settings were used? How do 4 amp channels translate into 6 kemper channels? And what settings were used? Probably not mine, as no one in their right mind would profile an amp with a mid heavy sound, when it sounds so bad on its own?
I later found out, that Ola also has a VS profile, but that is pretty scooped as well.
Also would be nice to contact the guy who made the profile and tell him how to dial in the amp correctly and redo the profile. Where could I ask for this?
2) this is more of a comment. I also wanted to find a John Petrucci IIC+ profile, so I went looking for mark2c and mark IIc. A few popped up, but none wowed me. Yesterday I stumbled on someone mentioning a JP2C here in the forum. I looked for it and apparently, someone profiled 3 pages worth of that amp in various settings. Some of which I really liked. Seriously, what’s up with that? Is there any way to effectively narrow down choices?
And is there any way to get the artists profiles or at least something similar? E.g. Trivium uses Kemper on tour, can I just get their profiles somewhere?
Yeah, basically just wondering how you approach 1 sound and 13.000 choices without context?
Also if anyone has high gain recommendations, I’m listening.
