FW 5.7.0.14099 Public Beta Feedback Thread

  • Thank you, Kemper team!


    Burkhard's original post:


    Here comes our new public beta revision introducing a bunch of new reverb algorithms plus flexibilization of the REV module! Related presets can be downloaded from our web page and imported via USB memory stick.


    Rig Manager 2.1.71 is required to establish communication with this new PROFILER OS.



    Audio


    added: five new reverb types: Spring Reverb, Natural Reverb, Easy Reverb, Echo Reverb, Cirrus Reverb (corresponding reverb presets available for download)

    added: all effect types available in all modules A - D and X - REV

    changed: The former reverb types (Hall, Large Room, Small Room, Ambience, Matchbox) are consolidated into one type named Legacy Reverb conserving the sound of all Rigs and Presets. Legacy Reverb includes one additional parameter Room Size, which reflects the former reverb types.


    User Interface


    changed: order of effect types

    changed: parameter Del+Rev Balance moved into Rig Settings and renamed into DLY+REV Routing

    changed: Factory content not completely included in operating system file (kaos.bin) anymore, just presets. Consequently Factory Rigs function in System Settings renamed to Factory Presets.


    Burkhard's update after the 5.7.0.14099 tweak:


    User Interface


    fixed: instant access knobs for Reverb Time and Reverb Mix dysfunctional

    fixed: REV module button dysfunctional

    changed: Scaling of the Mix control in Spring Reverb has changed compared to 5.6.2. If you had created Rigs or presets including Spring Reverb under 5.6.2, please readjust Mix.



    Thank you, Renaud, for posting the following:

    Cirrus Reverb

    The Cirrus Reverb starts where the Natural Reverb ends. Its specialty is long, ethereal reverb tails with exceptionally slow reverb onsets. For that reason, the Cirrus Reverb does not feature a predelay. The modulation pattern is also different to the Natural Reverb: it does not build up by time but stays consistent instead. All parameters should be familiar to you except:


    Natural Reverb

    The Natural Reverb is based on the latest digital reverb science and technology. It allowed us to create early reflections as an organic part of a room model. We therefore decided to turn away from the academic approach of having early reflections as a separately controllable set of reflections, in addition to a late reverb generator. We also liked the ease of control afforded by this approach.

    Due to the generic nature of the Natural Reverb, and the wide span of its parameters, it is capable of creating all kinds of natural sounding rooms -— from ambiences too short to be noticed, to lush and epic spaces. This also includes plate reverb simulations, and even artificial and synthesizer-like reverb pads -— all with the turn of two or three knobs.


    Easy Reverb

    The Easy Reverb is based on the Natural Reverb. In contrast to the latter, the number of parameters is reduced to a minimum, to make the workflow easy and straightforward.



    Echo Reverb

    The Echo Reverb is a delay combined with a reverb. In other words: a Natural Reverb with a feedback control added to its predelay to create rhythmic repetitions of the reverb tail. So, instead of using a straight delay type for a rhythmic enhancement, use the Echo Reverb for diffuse and soft echo reflections, when you find a regular delay is sounding too concrete or direct for your needs.

    CLIPS COMING SOON !!!

  • I wonder what happened to the Evolution Rev? That one had formant controls. Real nice sounding too.

    I suspect that they are drip-feeding us the reverb types, as they did with the delays. I think there were a couple of revisions before they surprised us all with the melody delays, for example.


    ps dang! I'm at a client party at work all evening and won't be able to check out the public beta til tomorrow! And then it will be with a very sore head :pinch:

  • Yep, seeing the same issues, reverb button works for long-press, but not short press, and the reverb dials don't work. Interesting that the mod dials dont work for me also, if I set a reverb in the MOD slot, but they do operate with other fx.


    Also, with reverb in MOD slot:

    - the MOD short-press enables and disables the reverb,.

    - If the slot is disabled, the MOD dials will enable the slot, but have no affect on the parameters.
