Unique Profiling Challenge - Rockman x100 - Stereo

  • I've recently accquired a refurb'd 1984 early Rockman x100, board revision 8, the soft clipped model. This is the first x100 version, where it only says x100 on the back.


    According to this page: https://www.rockman.fr/Reviews/Rockman.htm

    The output of the Rockman x100 is stereo for a specific reason:

    Inside the Rockman

    If you want to understand what a Rockman is and why it sounds so good, the first thing to do is to ...forget the headphones!

    Think of the Rockman as a stereo amp simulator, designed to be connected directly into the soundcard of your PC, or in the mixer of your band. Once that said, let's take a look at the internal structure of a Rockman.

    One can roughly identify two parts: a first mono section, that corresponds to the amp simulator in itself. Then a stereo effects section, with a stereo chorus and a stereo reverb.

    All in all, you connect your guitar to the Rockman. The signal goes through:

    • A compressor
    • A distortion unit (or nothing in clean modes)
    • A cab sim

    That's the amp simulator. Then the stereo part, where the Rockman creates two different versions of the signal:

    • One channel is based on the dry, original sound, plus some reverb
    The other channel goes through a short delay modulated by an LFO (thats the chorus effect) plus another reverbed sound

    Specifically this part:

    • One channel is based on the dry, original sound, plus some reverb

    The other channel goes through a short delay modulated by an LFO (thats the chorus effect) plus another reverbed sound

    It looks as though if I want to profile this, I need to connect only the right line out from my adapter, for the mono gated reverb signal only, and then try to recreate the left line out signal with the Kemper internal effects?


    Any tips or advice you can give me on this one? Thanks!
