Rig Manager 3 is available for testing 😍

  • SAY THANKS!


    Guys, I want you all to raise a glass tonight to Timo, Arne, Oskar, Georg and Jan. Without them, Rig Manager 3 wouldn't finally be here.


    Best, GS

    From one dev to another (as with many of us here), well done, guys!


    Those of us who sling code for a living know what it took for you to make this happen. Looks very cool!

  • I've got a Windows 10 tablet which throws up a dll missing warning whenever I try to install RM3 so I'm not able to give it a go.


    It's likely that it's due to it being a cheapo thing but thought I'd bring it up.


    Thanks anyway and I look forward trying to get it to work :):):):)

  • Wow Mac.OS 10.12 or Higher ?


    What a disappointment ;( all this waiting for nothing...


    Well no RM3 for me.

    To be fair... that's an OS that is over 3.5 years old, and 3 OS's behind current day. It was also the first OS that was released as "MacOS". Developers need to draw a line in the sand somewhere, as they can't possibly be expected to test every flavor of every OS since the beginning of time.


    That being said, I'm sorry you can't enjoy the latest improvements.


    Regs,

    Jeff

  • Hi Glenn, I downloaded your Profile/Performance pack ... They are amazing!! I can’t wait for you, and M Britt to do your thing with the editor.


    Just brainstorming here ... you could usb your Kemper into another Win 10 pc for editing without messing with your WIN 7 - DAW/VIDEO.

    I’ll lend you one😀👍🇺🇸🎸.

    Yes I could. I have a Microsoft Surface Pro running Windows 10 so I might use that just to mess around with. Thank you so so much for your support Sir. I really do appreciate it.

    I don't think it's about cheapo hardware, so it's a cat you can probably skin (if you're into hairless felines, of course). If you're getting an error about a missing dll, there's a good chance that there are Windows updates that you haven't installed. Usually these updates are automatic but sometimes installations don't happen properly (Stuff Happens).


    If it were me, I would Google the name of the dll. You'll have to wade through a lot of "is this a virus?" results but if you keep going you'll probably find a reference to a Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article or update referring to that dll.


    It may also be related to a device driver, which can be it's own thing, but again it's a problem that can probably be solved.


    If you'll post the name of it, I don't mind doing a little poking around to see what I can learn. There are guys here who work on the IT / support side of the fence who would be even better resources and some of them may chime in as well.

    3 and 1/2 years is not really that long, and Windows 7 was a pretty solid release that many people are still using today, especially for home use. And yes, I know it's going out of support by Microsoft very soon, but that doesn't mean it's going to suddenly stop working. If Kemper wants to say that they won't offer support for anyone trying to run it on an unsupported OS that runs into issues, that's understandable. But as I said previously, unless there is something technically required by RM 3 to run that doesn't exist in Windows 7 (and I seriously doubt that is the case), there's no reason to deliberately program the installer to abort the installation on a Windows 7 (or earlier than a Mac OS10.12) machine. I see it as a cop out....


    One of the main issues for me is there is no way to upgrade.... it's a fresh install to Windows 10. So that means I have to dig out all of the software I've installed and configured over the past many years and hope I can get them all installed and set up correctly (ie- the same) again. And once/IF I do, I have to deal with Microsoft arbitrarily deciding when it wants to update my system, which may or may not crash it, at any time.

  • Is there some sort of manual for the editor controls? I have seen the posts about shift and ctrl keys so far

    There's a beta manual on the same page as the editor download. It's got a couple of pages about keyboard shortcuts.


    It seems a bit thin but I don't know if that's because a) it's a beta manual or b) it's just not that complicated since the knobs are already documented for the profiler itself. Could be either.

  • There are some needed things as I look deeper. When you hit "store", it overwrites the rig you're working on. There's no options to "save as" or "rename" like on the Kemper itself. You can "duplicate" the rig if you want to edit a copy. There's no way to save or recall FX presets or groups. There's no "perform" editing functions. There's no pedal or system editing either. There's no way to save or recall amplifiers or cabinets.

    So, still keep your Kemper close by when you work. The basic editing is all there and is great. Deeper stuff will still require button pushing.


    Still, I'm very grateful for what we have now and additions to come.

  • From me my big congrats to the Kemper team. The new Rig Manager looks great, ist absolutely usable and installation went well. It took a while to sync all settings, rigs, performances, ... but then... bling it works!

    Currently copying, pasting, doing things ist still a bit "betaish", but it works with some patience and wow, it is all so easy!


    Thank you!

    Obviously i think the same, I'm on Mavericks because for my uses I can tell that it's way more stable with my hardware.


    Of course I miss some updates for some programs that I use but the feature I miss is not as important as The so anticipated Editor from Kemper.


    I have to sleep well and forget this, I'm so pissed off that I want to change gear to have an editor lol !! (Axe-Edit "Requires OS X version 10.7 or newer.")

    that’s funny ... I’m watching your YouTube video right now 👍😂 ... my workaround is to copy the rig first, rename it, then tweak it to my heart’s content ... no worries about screwing it up.

    Yeah, but if you're like me, you'll forgot to do that first. There should be a challenge question at least like saying, "are you sure you want to save" before it commits to the overwrite.


    Thanks for watching the video btw :thumbup:
