[PROBLEM or Normal?] Kemper Profiler Stage output noise...

  • Ok, now to your issue, what you hear sounds like a damaged input transistor or opamp, I know that from working with audio far too much, it seems your processing line is damaged somehow, The problem is electric, with a simple ground problem, it would be only a 60Hz hum or some craclick while playing, but your crackling comes from the noise floor.


    Open a ticket as soon as possible, send the audios to kemper support through mail. Sorry to bear bad news :/ to be honest, there has been more issues with the stage than ever were with the other units, I believe some of the design compromises to encapsulate all the components in a tight space is responsible for most of the problems. But who knows...

    Thanks for taking a listen. With all the self testing I've done, I figured the problem was somewhere within the "input" components of the Kemper. Glad to know you think the same, sounds like we are identifying the true problem.

  • I too have the same problem of crackles and pops through the sound system. I know for certain that it is the Kemper producing the noises, as it comes through the built in headphones when nothing else is connected to it. I desperately want it to work, but if I don't receive satisfaction there will be no alternative but to return it for a refund.
