Another tip for additional gear, thx.
But what I'm dreaming about could probably be realized with a 150€ worth software add-on for Kemper allowing to realize many of these tips.
Another cue for the science and software guys:
Think of a deep neural network trained to imitate Claptons Blacky
About 10 years back I was involved in development of Guitar Suite (Amp modeling and pickup modeling, room acoustics etc). unfortunately The Lead Developer had health issues and had to call it a day due to the sheer amount of stress we all had to endure.
I might have a newer build of that plugin in one of my archive drives, However here is version that might have gotten released : http://www.vst4free.com/free_vst.php?plugin=Redshift&id=2408
Having said that: if you are too keen of experimenting:
try out some guitar pickup IR (impulse responses) followed by an Eq to further shape the tone. To use with kemper you might need to use a hardware IR loader for negligible latency , or you can bring your audio interface into the Kemper Loop, but might have to endure some latency.
I have some pickup IR's that I captured back in the day. Let me know and I will try to put them up somethere.
