Rig Manager 3.0 Editor


  • Most of which would directly generate revenue. The editor not being one of them.

    Actually the editor is generating revenues by increasing sales of Kemper hardware. Few electronic companies are providing free updates during 7 years but also few products are still selling well 7 years after release, with a price tag higher than art the start (althought manufacturing cost has probably decreased and investments have been répand). The dsp has no replacement available, the profiling process won’t have an upgrade in the near future.

    This is a (good) business model, not philanthropy.

    My point is not philanthropy. It’s the fact that others have unreleased products that will instantly and directly generate revenue. A new pedal, a new guitar, amp....whatever. They all come with a price tag.


    The editor cannot and will not generate revenue on its own. It will assist.....but Kemper could do (and does) just fine without it. Even the Stage would do fine without it. Better with, for sure.

    I guess options don't mean much when a person doesn't want or need them. I think the right way to state the above woulda been, but Kemper could do (and does) just fine without it "for me". And then add, "as always, YMMV". ;) Sure you don't even need a guitar to own a Kemper and it will power on just fine without one. As always, YMMV- lol....

    If you use FRFR the benefit of a merged profile is that the cabinet is totally separated in the profile.

  • Many of you emphasize that the editor will be free. To be honest, I'd rather pay and have it for a year and a half, that is, from the day of purchasing the profiler. I'm 60 years old and I wish I could enjoy it a bit before I die. 😉

  • LOL! Sorry, I mean no disrespect to anyone here, especially Kemper because I love my Kemper but I actually cannot believe how long its taking them to release new the editor. I mean, not even a beta for us users to test? How do we even know its even close to being ready? I wouldn't be surprised if it's still in alpha stage.


    Sorry but this is a complete joke.

    You completely misinterpreted.


    The company that is Kemper could do (and does) just fine without it.


    That’s not an opinion.

  • You completely misinterpreted.

    I dont think so. This wasn't an attack and I meant no disrespect, it was however an opinion that what you don't want or need might not fit the needs or wants of others. Thats how what you wrote came across to me, and Im probably not alone in that. Hope you are not upset that I point that out. Peace brother. :)

    No disrespect felt. But I do believe you misinterpret my statement.


    Kemper as a company does an would likely continue to do just fine in revenue and profit without the editor. It has zero to do with me or my opinions.


    Since 2011 the company has successfully existed and thrived without the editor. There is no reason to think that continuing sans-editor would be markedly different.


    I want the editor. But made the decision to purchase one before it was announced and regret nothing.

    Thanks for clarifying- I feel the same and did the same. :)
