So I finally sold my Kemper Head. I´ve had it for years and almost never used it. I just chased profiles that I was hoping to like and never played the guitar. I actually find 99% of all profiles sound bad. Sterile and harsh and not tube-sounding. I did find some of Michael Britts profile usable and really good sounding, but still not "my personal taste". And two hours before I sold it i acually got a really good highgain sound with a Orange MBritt profile (that isnt really a highgain shred profile by any means, and Im not in to Orange soundwise, but I tweaked it to sound natural and good). I always felt that I could get a better and realistic sound with more precense in the tone and natural tube sound with my other real equipment with my Torpedo Live. So I mainly use my 4 channel (clean, crude, crunch, lead) Tommy Folkesson modded JCM800 mkIV which has the best higain lead sound on the planet. (Yes I have tried a lot of amps in my 35 years of playing). I can get close to what I hear from my Greenback speaker when I use it trough my Torpedo Live to my RCF ART310 (most of the speaker emulations doesnt sound good on Torpedo either, but say 3 of 100 sounds natural and good. I acually find one stock that I use and sounds better than all the IR´s ive tried so far.) I also use my Marshall JMP-1 also modded by Tommy Folkesson (now it has real tubedistortion) that has good cleans! and very fluid leads.
Soo, I sold the Kemper, it was to much money to just stand there was my opinion.
But it has got 2 weeks now, and for some reason there is a hunger to buy a Kemper again. The Stage model this time. It cant be simplier to carry to a gig than that.
I own 6 butique-amps (modified) that doesnt exist in the profile word to download or buy. So I have to profile them by myself. Here was and still is the problem, I´ve tried to do that but the result was really bad. It sound as crappy as a lot of the already excisting profiles out there, and nothing like the sound that I hear thru my real cabs. BUT when I use the amps with my Torpedo, I can get pretty close to the real thing. So my question is can I profile my amps throu the Torpedo Live? And how to do that? So I can get rid of miking and all the bad results I get with that teqnique?
Maby I can get good enough result with this method? I realize that I can´t get as good result as a real amp because when we profile we just profile that perticular moment the amp is in those seconds. But soundquality it should be able to do a least 90-95% or the tone.
