For a few years now, I've been all about turning the Character knob in the cab section all the way up, especially for headphones. Because of filtering and (algorithmic?) placement, it's never really worked out well for using the power section with monitor cab off through a traditional cab without using pure cab which then changes the XLR sound. Just using the xlr out into powered wedges have been ok but not really working well with that sound.
So, as of late I have stopped using the Character knob so dramatically or at all. And now, I've been doing the opposite and getting good results doing that. Using -5.0 instead of +5.0 sometimes with a little pure cab or character at -2.6 or so and pure cab or no pure cab. High and low shift to taste.
Wondering, is anybody else using negative character values, with or without purecab? Xlr and or traditional cab?
I know that minus values on character have more of a fizzy sound, but in there lies some truth about amp sounds in general and the kemper, I think... so I'm looking to yall to find some other opinions on the matter. Hope this helps lol
