Profiler Stage Introduction Thread

  • Is that officially confirmed? Is it exactly the same?

    Kemper PowerRack | Rivera 4x12 V30 cab | Yamaha DXR10 pair | UA Apollo Twin Duo | Adam A7X | Cubase DAW
    Fender Telecaster 62 re-issue chambered mahogany | Kramer! (1988 or so...) | Gibson Les Paul R7 | Fender Stratocaster HBS-1 Classic Relic Custom Shop

  • OK - interesting!

  • ...& here was me adding extra ‘pure boost’ pedals to profiles, so as to avoid potential tone contamination :) Good to know it’s not necessary :). The green screamer also increases the tightness.


    I’m very happy with the Kemper Stage into a Zoom U44 S/PDIF into 2 small M Audio BX5’s for jamming.

    I don’t mind a 2 colored screen but they should’ve included an exp. pedal IMO.

  • I thought the gain knob did something different to the profile, not just a boost of the guitar signal pre stack, but that makes sense.


    It's also in the manual:

    The Pure Booster features a “Volume” control like all the other effects, but that’s it. The
    “Volume” control will boost or attenuate the signal without coloring the sound. When
    you place it in front of the amp or a distortion stomp, the Pure Booster has the same
    effect as the gain or drive control
    ; placed after the stack section, the Pure Booster
    becomes a simple volume control, with no further coloration of the signal.

    I did some tests a while back where I profiled a THD BiValve with the volume at every 1 hour point (7 o’clock, 8 o’clock etc) then compared these with other versions of the profile but with gain reduced. Eg take a profile made with the amp volume at 12 o’clock and A/B this with a differed profile of an amp with the volume at 4 o’clock but reduce the Kemper gain to the same value as the first profile has baked in. Then compare the higher gain original profile with the guitar volume rolled back. The Kemper gain control definitely responds like rolling the guitar volume to my ears.

  • No wonder I felt that all hi-gain profiles lacked gain - my charvels neck humbucker was mounted in the bridge position & vice versa, both about 3 mm from the depressed strings.


    Now that I have switched I feel no need to increase the gain.


    But where can I activate the “space” function on the Stage? I hear it’s great for headphone usage?

    I’ve searched the quick start guide


  • Hi Linusius,


    Further to Don Petersen's reply, I might offer the following advice...


    Download the Kemper Profilier "Main Manual -- 7.0" from the Kemper site. Open with your PDF editor/viewer of choice, and use the program's "Search" (or "Find") function to search for keyword terms. In this case, you would do a search for "Space". If you do this, the program will return twenty (20) results. In reading the brief citations shown in the Search results window, you will find that the parameter is discussed on page 107. Click on the hyperlink, and your PDF viewer will take you directly to the relevant section.


    Cheers,

    John

  • Hello, I just received my Kemper Stage, all seems to be working fine except for one thing

    The headphone out volume is really low and is clipping really bad. The kemper does not seem to be clipping itself, no red light...


    is this an hardware problem or known software issue ?
