Looper pre/post - Unable to hear playback with looper set on input

  • Hi friendly users of the Kemper machine.


    I know it's late and I've been confused about something i might have changed somewhere.

    I know someone here used to have an issue hearing the looper playback in 'post'. For me, it is the opposite.


    I was used to hear the playback on the looper then I could browse profiles with my hands free from the guitar and the sounds would change

    everytime I switched presets. Now i cant hear anything (switched on 'input').

    If I switch on output (post) on the system's looper position , I can hear the playback but I cant hear the changes of sound

    when I'm switching presets (it stays with the same sound I used to record the loop).

    Output Source is set to Master mono for Main Output.

  • 1. You have to record new loop when you are switching pre/post

    2. In post position sound is recorded after the stack so rig change will not have influence on the recorded loop

    3. In "pre" position the rig will affect the loop sound

    Hi Damian, thank you for taking the time,


    I did retry to record a loop after switching back to pre (input) and still no sound on playback (which is still strange

    due to the fact i was hearing the signal come across while recording the loop).

    I see the playback bar running during that time.

    The only thing I think i didnt try yet is to unplug the remote and plug it back. ;)

  • Have you checked the Looper Volume control incase it accidentally got turned to 0?

    I think it is to 0 by default. Isnt 0 Db the highest setting on this control? I just checked and it only goes down to -12 Db on the negative side.

  • Given your settings, it should work and it works here under OS 6.0. I tested Front INPUT as well as ALTERNATIVE INPUT.

    Check Volume Pedal level.

    The Remote is a remote control and not part of the audio signal chain.

    Check, that you are really using the intended output and Output Source and no effect loop is engaged while no external equipment attached … the usual suspects.

    Try other Rigs, change mode…. to narrow in.

    I did retry with Front Input and for some reason it WORKED!

    I thought it was something else but it was worth retrying. Thanks for the suggestion!
