I have always played kpa through a cab (stage sound). Recently I auditioned some di / merged profiles, and discovered the cabless signal is more open Compared to studioprofiles where kpa calculates the cab.
So I have decided to switch to merged / di profiles exclusively.
1/ Which commercial profilers offer di/merged profiles, and do so by profiling multiple settings of the same amp?
2/ is there an effective way to identify what is a merged profile, and what is a studio? Is there somekind of checkbox anywhere?...or do we have to go on title/descriptions?
3/ Did anyone cover this issue succesfully:
- unlike using studio profiles, when using merged profiles, the difference between uncabsimmed sound (to my amp), and cabsimmed sound (to foh) gets unpredictable. Did anyone cover this in a practical way? I could imagine using 1 IR for all your profiles is gonna work.
(Recommendations to switch to frfr not needed ;))
