I'm having a hard time understanding Direct profiles or profiles when I remove the cab and use the Kemper through a solid state amp and into a real 4x12.
There is a pretty big difference of how my amps sound through real cabs (AITR) vs when the cabs are micd or through a reactive load w/ IR. The EQ settings that I have to change on the amp for AITR vs. micd cab or IR through headphones or FRFR are very different.
If part of a profile of an amp is the result of the pefect EQ settings for a micd cab, then how reasonable is it to think that I will be able to use a Direct profile or no cab profile and run that through a SS amp and into a real guitar cab and be able to adjust the EQ or EQs to compensate for the AITR difference?
This is where I keep thinking about the Fractal/Helix and how I can adjust the EQ or several EQs (think Mesa 5 band, etc.) and not have to worry about it compromising the inherent sounds of the modeled amp vs. a static capture in time of a profile.
I'm probably just going to have to play around with it and see what I can do with the EQ on a Direct or no cab profile when trying to get it to sound good for AITR.
Any thoughts or experiences?
