Rig Manager 3.0 Editor

  • Maybe its just me, but my Kemper is perched on its throne all the way on the other side of the room and I usually sit at my desk (with computer) to play. Repeatedly getting up to tweak it and sitting back down reminds me too much of church... so I'd rather have the editor.


    SAVE THE KNEES PEOPLE!!! SAVE THE KNEES!!! Can I have an AMEN? 8o

  • I am already past the editor on my wish-list ..... and am now wishing for the improved stomps ;)


    Of course, I will still take a good editor when it comes out.


    As for the question of "is an editor needed?" ......


    My opinion is that it wasn't really needed that badly until the "Stage" came out. Stage users have to really hate having to bend over to edit.... or put the controller up on the desk .... but either way, an editor would sure make the Stage a much much better product.


    As others have pointed out, the Toast ME editor did help me better understand how the different efx were routed and how the different settings effected the chain. It is a really nice add to an already fantastic product.

  • I truly believe that it'll come out before Christmas.........please?

    I don't *need* it, but I definitely *want* it.

    I'm not much of a tweaker at the moment but I am looking forward to getting into it with the help of the new Rig Manager. I'm also looking forward experimenting with different cabinets. I'm aware I can do all that now, but the new Rig Manager will (hopefully) make all this much more accessible.


    I'm excited!

  • Show me a functionality the editor will bring that isn't currently available directly on the unit. Or using Rig Manager as-is. (edit for nit-picking).

    Getting 'everything' out of the unit is possible as-is.

    Way to dodge the question, but you bring up a good point. Functionality does not necessarily equate to efficiency. But, my example, based upon a real scenario:


    I have (at least) 12 performances, with each of the 5 rigs using a different version of an 'Auto-wah' based upon 3 different 'templates' (up; down; phase). Tell me how fast you can go through 60 different rigs, go into the settings of each 'Auto-wah', determine which template it was based upon, tweak each on to a new setting, and save it, and then save the rig. While you are at it, save out three new templates with the new tweaks, with the same name, and go back and delete the ones you want to replace since the Kemper doesn't let you edit and save to the same file.


    While you are doing that...


    I don't know that an editor will make that easier, but I sure as hell hope it will. Sure, you can plod through the above task ( which I have done, manually, using a notebook), but an onscreen editor which could give you quick access to the settings in each assigned stomp preset could make it a lot easier.

  • Wow, that made me exhausted. To early for a beer at 7:30am.. Maybe not;)

  • Call it a dodge if you like. I was asked to clarify my definition. I did.


    That yours differs? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • For those of you that missed this.


    HW said on the podcast that the Sooze is a beta tester for Kemper and that Rig Manager 3 has already a private beta being tested.

    See now that is the kind of update we should have gotten from Kemper not a chance mention in a podcast. That would have been a simple update to prevent a lot of the back and forth in this thread. Not that it would have made much of a difference in the grand scheme of things but communication would have been nice to get from the source.

    You announce that, then support gets inundated with "Can I be a beta tester!!!" messages. Or even more "When, when, when, when.....!!!"

    If Sooze has a beta, that's a good thing.

    And that is better then the current situation how? Right now they have the same things going on with the exception of the "Can I be a beta tester!!!" messages. Those types of support contacts can also be mitigated by stating that the beta tests have been selected and there are no openings for those positions. People wanting more or reaching out to support should not be an excuse to withhold information that everyone is obviously desperate for. One look at the length of this thread proves how desperate people are for information on this.

    Now the beta test information is out there but it didnt come from Kemper, that does not create a good look.
