can someone help me with updates on my KPA ? I am in Illinois

  • due to work schedule of 2 jobs & hand injuries, stroke etc, , I have not used my toaster for about 4 yrs & I don't have the memory span to try to do it , & no patience either, I have the Remote, & toaster has a power amp mounted on the back (amp from Italy ) the unit is so far outdated , it would take me forever, I am willing tp pay someone something for there time, I am in Ottawa Illinois 61350 & will travel about 60-70 miles TIA roger

  • i wish I could help but I’m in the UK. I know you mentioned your stroke and memory span but the update process is really very easy. You can go straight from any old version to the current version without the need to do any intermediate updates. You should be able to update Rig Manager than do the Profiler update from there without even reaching for a USB stick. It doesn’t need any specific Kemper knowledge so if you aren’t able to do it yourself a friend or family member should be able to do the physical parts for you.


    everything the would need is on the Kemper Website in the download section.

  • You can go straight from any old version to the current version without the need to do any intermediate updates.

    Actually, there is one necessary interim step if the OS is older than v1.8.2 Release, Alan. The OP hasn't used his Profiler for 4 years so if he was up-to-date at that time, this shouldn't matter to him.


    For those who might be interested, this is explained in the v5 manual:


    From Reference Manual 5.0

    Usually, you can update to the latest operating system in one step. However, if the operating system currently installed on your Profiler should happen to be older than 1.8.2 Release, you need to take an interim step, and upgrade to that operating system version first. Leaving this step out might lead to an error.


    There is of course a chance that this interim step is no longer required when updating to the latest FW version, but I've seen no mention of it since the days when it was necessary.

  • Thanks Nicky. To be totally honest, a big part of why I responded even though I can't pop round and help in person,was just to create a recnt comment that might move the post into the recent activity zone and possible encourage others to get involved or offer help. Seem to be working :)

  • Can you tell us what release version of software is currently on it? It's listed on the start-up screen after you turn the Kemper on.


    Maybe someone can send you a USB stick formatted for the Kemper, with the newest update? Once you have that, it should be simple for you to update it.
