I've been struggling with this for ages, and it has held me back from using my Kemper at home as much as I could
My powered Kemper sounds so much sweeter through an amp speaker (bypassing the cabinet section) than it does direct to the studio monitors using the cab emulations! (I use Yamanha HS7's)
There's so much more harshness to the sound when using the cab emulations and the monitors, the sound is hollower, there's less feel and I have a hard time with it.
I keep hearing recording online in youtube of guys playing direct to DAW through the Kemper and it sounds way better!
Then I get the exact same profiles and it's not anything like that experience
Could there be something wrong with my setup?
