Profiler Stage Introduction Thread

  • I noticed an error on rig manager. If I have selected 1 profile on my Local Library, if I click "store rig", the "store rig in profiler" disapears. And the changes are save only in the LOCAL rig. Not in the profiler.



    Edit: I want to add a posible feature. I have all the profiles duplicated on the profiler and locally. It would be great to have a button like "SYNC" to synchronize a profile with the profiler (If i am tweaking it locally) or "SYNC" to local library (If i am tweaking it on the profiler section). Now I have to tweak the same profile multiple times If I want to save it in every location.


    Also, It would be great to tweak all the profiles you want locally, and just clicking one button, send all the changes to those profiles to the profiler.

  • Hello Kemper users. I am a new Stage owner. I’ve owned and played thru most every modeler out there. My favorite is by far the Axe Fx III.


    I’ve always been curious about Kemper , but never truly understood what it was about. I’m still not entirely sure to be honest. I know the “profiles” sound really good. The TJ brown sounds are my favorites so far. Instant EVH.


    It’s really different , not having complete “amp control” for sounds on this unit. It feels very limiting at first. Using Axe Fx , I would generally find an amp and IR that I liked , adjust the gain so that I could clean up my sound with my guitar volume , or put it full on for gain. The Kemper appears to have a bit of this capability , but more limited. - more of a 7-10 usability range on the guitar vol. ( with my medium and low output HBs in my LPs )

    These are just personal options and observations so far. I’ve owned it for less than a week. Played a gig last night with it. I didn’t have it dialed in any where near as good as it could be , but I pulled it off , and the mix sounded great.

    I’ll be glad to accept any and all advice about using a Kemper unit after using modelers. So far I like it. Different , but I like it.

  • Hi @1oldplayer and welcome! Axe-FX 2 user but Stage owner here as well. I like em both but for rehearsal/gigging it'll be the Stage. I tweak way less with the Stage once you find the 'right' profile. Having said that there's a tonne of them on the Rig exchange!

    Have fun with the Stage :):thumbup:

  • Hello! You can't use the kemper as it was an axe. Axe is to tweak everything to achieve your sound. The kemper is much more straight fordward. The key is to find a good base sound, or a profile that sounds good without tweaking anything, and starting from that point, you can tweak small things to adapt it to your playing. My 2 cents.


    Greetings.

  • Hi guys,


    new here. I’m considering buying the profiler stage.


    I have a questions for those who can help me.


    I can’t find the manual, only the quick start guide. Is it not out yet?


    can I use the Kemper stage to send midi messages to control ableton live?


    can you morph any parameter with an expression pedal?


    Thanks

  • Hi Guys,


    Been playing Fractal gear for about seven years and finally decided to try about the Kemper Stage about a month ago. Now I’m a true believer!!! Wow does it down fantastic and turn it on and start ripping. I love it! I even had the good fortune of being in the Fractal FM3 delivery list this month so I was able to test them side by side and sorry to say the choice took me about five minutes. Love Fractal great company but looking forward to every time I get window to turn my Stage on going forward. Thanks Kemper team!!!!

    I did have one question if anyone can provide any tips. I play a PRS Silver Sky and Custom 24. Love to roll off the volume knob. For some reason whenever I roll below 7 on most of the low gain profiles I’m using seem to loose character based on what I’m use to from Fractal and my Fender amps. I’ve followed all the thread recommendations on the topic and can’t seem to crack the code. I’m not using a compressor up front usually, and my master volume is set right at 5. Is the trick to crack that master to 10 and just turn down your monitor power amp? Maybe something else? Thanks for any and all feedback!

    Try Cleansense in Inputmenue. I think it will work.

  • Also, try increasing the dedicated Compressor parameter that is found in the Amp Menu. This compressor does not act like typical stomp compressors. It should liven up your clean signal as you turn down the volume on your guitar. Check the KPA Reference Manual for more details on the function and advantages of the Amp-section Compressor.

  • does anyone know how to serve up kemper stage to jamkazam please ?

    I am not sure exactly what you are asking by 'serve up' (probably just a bit of language difference) and I have heard of a lot of latency issues using that service, but... my guess is that you need an audio interface that can connect to your computer. You can run direct out from the kemper into the audio interface. I use a Scarlet 2i2 and am playing around with Acapella for sharing and collaborating with some friends, so I am guessing the only difference is that Acapella isn't live - but the Kemper into the audio interface to your computer part should be more or less pretty much the same. I hope that makes sense but let me know if you have questions.
