Mimicing a wet/dry amp setup- delay?

  • Hey guys,


    I can't seem to find a way to do this and the search here isn't getting me answers... So if anyone has answers let me know please.


    After my almost 8 years of recording a ton with the KPA I am preparing to start gigging again (long story).

    In any case, when I record I always add delays afterward in my DAW. I record the Kemper like a dry amp, just like every time I would with amps in the studio.

    I record mono and then clone the track and pan it to the side with the delay. I don't want the stereo millisecond thing, I want a paired mono sound... Just one with delay.

    This sounds like my old wet/dry two amp setups I used prior to the Kemper and I am really happy with that.


    With the delay coming out of the Kemper is there a way to have dry on one side and delay only panned to the other speaker (running two cabs obviously)?

    It's a really nice delay, but I'd prefer it only on one speaker... It's too washy for my ears, or too low in the mix.


    I hope that makes sense!


    Thanks for any help!!

    Changed the title of the thread from “Mimicing a wet/dry delay?” to “Mimicing a wet/dry amp setup- delay?”.
  • I think you have to utilize two different KPA outputs for your desired setup (e.g. Monitor and Direct Out). I'm not in front of my KPA atm so maybe I'm not using the right terms, but I'd dial one output to Mod Mono (signal chain up to the Mod module) and the other one to Reverb/Delay only. If you own a powered Kemper you only have one powered output so you'll need a second amp to fire up the second cab.

    I could have farted and it would have sounded good! (Brian Johnson)

  • Not sure if it's exactly what you want but I sometimes use my guitar mono dry with my power rack and then a pair or dxr10s with a wet signal. Sounds great but changing volume is a nightmare since it messes with the delay/reverb levels.

    Thanks so much guys, I'll try this later


    I have a stage these days, so a pair of powered monitors

    ... Crossing fingers!

  • how about Dual Delay, 100% wet,

    one side with 0ms delay, the other with whatever ms amount you want to use

    Thanks Don


    Couldn't get to work for me though... Maybe I have something set wrong elsewhere?

    I cannot get a delay, any of the delays, to pan or sound panned. I don't even see a "side" in the Dual delay.

    Read the manual, pushed the buttons.


    Couldn't figure the Monitor/Main thing either , have two monitors hooked up, but couldn't get the monitor output to make anything... I did go into output to turn it up.


    What am I missing?


    Probably a sign that I shouldn't gig again.

  • Yea, when using the monitor output I couldn't get a signal.

    I turned it up in the output section all the way, and nothing at all came out.

    All the mains (trs and xlr) are fine though.

    Weird.

  • Did you check the output menu? Just to make sure the monitor out isn't turned off...

    Voilà !

    We have a winner!


    I had it turned back off after all the different things I tried (derp).

    That worked like a charm, and everything sounds fantastic this way.


    Can't thank you enough, I appreciate all the help very much!!

  • Since I record dry I set it so the Mains were dry, the Monitor out wet.


    Hopefully this spring!! I have to finish my new release first and get past the holidays.

    Going to do the Buckethead thing and play with backing tracks live, at least at first.

    I would need a good sized band to play my weird music.


    Thanks again!
