My Conclusion about Kemper Profiler Stage, in 3 months of testing days. Product purchased on 19.12.2019, sent into service on 30.01.2020, returned to me and found the same but more problems, returned again to service on 21.02.2020. So....
Unreliable product for live/home/stage.....all situations, too many problems:
1. Immediately after I bought it, I tested it and I discovered it Noise/buzz on Master Output XLR and Monitor Out Dry with my Strat equipped with DiMarzio noiseless pickups, freeze OS, footswitches does not work properly, or work randomly. There are many users who claim these problems, especially about footswitches. I compared and recreated the same situations with the same cables with Boss GT-100 which works perfectly, so no trace of "human error" in this tests.
Update, after service ALL 4 Out jacks, MAIN/MON has a buzz/noise, incredible strange buzz, you say it is a "factory in operation". I did several tests, either directly in Mute/Tunner mode. I didn't even connect the guitar!
2. Noise/buzz on headphones in mute signal mode. It's not related to Main Volume or Gain or patch.
3. The screen shows aberrations in the correct display of colors, and moves up and down. The buttons below the screen are very rigid, after service.
So, Kemper Stage has gone into service again, hoping that, maybe this time it will be repaired or REPLACED with a functional unit, if it exists !!! Heloooooo Kemper !!!
Almost weekly I discover new problems. Too risky to use at work. I still rely on the old Boss GT-100.
Unfortunately the 30 days of return passed. I was stuck with this product, and I hope that the next updates will solve the problems, or maybe the warranty.
If I didn't already buy the 366E Mission Engineering EP1-KP-GN SPL and Thon Case Kemper Prof. Stage, I would definitely return it, get my money back and I didn't want to hear about this Kemper Stage. But what do I do now? Put yourself in my shoes!
We are ... just testers, on our money
