NAMM 2019: Profiler OS6 Operating System

  • I’m not sure if you can do a soft blend through an expression pedal, but you should be able to set this up today through some remote manipulation. Maybe one button moves it to half way gain and the next moves it to full. Ie, take your highest gain profile, then dial it down to half way and then set a button on the remote, then another from halfway to clean. Then the buttons would just be in reverse of what you want. You could also get there using a overdrive effect and assign an expression pedal to the mix. Then you could setup an expression pedal for the wet / dry effect mixes from zero to 100%.


    Kemper supports up to 4 expression pedals today via the remote.

  • Not sure if this is already possible or not (which is why I'm asking).....

    Is it possible to set up 2 (or more) different expression pedals for morphing?

    IE- one pedal is set up to morph from a clean setting to a distorted setting, and the other pedal to morph from dry to different levels of reverb/delay?


    If not, that would be a great feature!!

    Unfortunately not. I have asked for this feature before on a few occasions but Burkhard says it would be too confusing for users and I am probably the only pers that would want it. It would be amazing if the new editor which will include a visual display of morph settings could be used to remove the “confusing” arguement and allow multiple independent morph pedals. In fact I wouls strongly argue that having 4 morph “layers” would be mich less confusing than the current Wah>Volume and Wah>Pitch situation.

    Although it supports 4 expression pedals you can use them the way you described as they are not Midi CC pedals. If you are using 4 pedals they mudt be Volume, Wah, Pitch and Morph unfortunately.

  • Basically, I would like files to behave like files normally do on any other ‘computer’ system. Meaning you can edit and save TO them; you aren’t forced to make a copy every time you want to edit the file; file names are unique; you can use the same file in multiple places; you can edit the single file and those edits are incorporated everywhere that file is used; you can look at it, or wherever it is used and know exactly what it is, etc. That is the way every computer and computer program and file management system I have ever used has functioned - and for the life of me I don’t get the ‘logic’ of deviation from that paradigm.


    However, at this point, the preponderance of the evidence from the user base and a Kemper team would suggest that is crazy, and too much to ask, and few people see the value. I am pretty much done with it. YMMV

    Yeah sorry, wasn't trying to wind you up about it :)


    I think the point here is having a single file that is referenced across multiple uses or at least the choice. I would not like it to just do what you have suggested but I'd like the choice - create a new one or use the "master" version..

    I definitely see the value in this. I also don't like the fact that once you load a preset you don't see any reference to the preset.


    But I have to say that I'm glad about any improvement in preset handling. So definitely looking forward to OS6.

  • Is it too late to ask that it be possible to assign the momentary switches in the Kemper itself to more than one function, like you can with the remote?

    Hey man, I didn't understand what you meant. What momentary switches in the Kemper?


    The Remote can be set so that the switches are momentary, and I can confirm that other foot controllers can also be programmed so that they are either momentary or latching.

  • Is there any chance that in OS 6, the S/PDIF ports could be used as connections for either an FX loop in the Stomp slots or the X block after the stack? This would provide an extra hardware insertion point for a second effects loop.
