I'm having a problem with how my Kemper is sounding.
Here is a link to a video of the Kemper playing through the first several profiles on the unit.
Before doing this video I did a flash reset and also the one were you hold down the system key while booting it up so I'm thinking the profiles should be the same as on another unit. Have also updated to the latest Kemper version.
The sound was great for a couple of weeks earlier this month. I was loving the sound and it definitely sounded like what I have heard from youtube videos. Each profile had its own unique character. Then I started using the navigation buttons to cycle through profiles and then the sound turned back to what I'm hearing in the video, really thin and harsh on the clean and then metallic/fizzy and very similar sound on all profiles. Some other things that I think aren't normal are:
There seems to be a reverb (legacy reverb) on the majority of profiles.
There are drastic volume differences between profiles. (I had to turn down the second profile in the videos volume by about 10db as it was twice as loud)
There is way more noise evident on gain profiles. (I am running an American strat, noise gate was off for video but it kills the hum at 6 or 7 on the noise gate. This noise was not as apparent last week when it was sounding good and I was using same position on 5 way strat switch.)
Things I have tried to figure out whats going on:
Tried all resets and have updated to latest version.
Tried different guitar leads.
Different guitars (PRS custom 24, US Strat, Samick Artist)
Different monitors (Adam A7x, Fostex, and 2 x headphones.)
Bypassing interface/DAW and going straight to monitors.
Trying different locations/houses/powerpoints as I was wondering if it was related to a power issue or pickup interference, this didn't help.
Turning off lights/monitors, changing guitars angle to screen etc.
Checking 60hz/50hz setting on kemper.
Checking that CAB and AMP settings are on.
Checking clean sens etc. (both are set to 0.)
Checking gain staging on profiles in case it was clipping somewhere.
Bought some spdif cables and went into the UFX interface that way (set both to 88.2khz.)
None of this has helped. Could anyone please give me some guidance here on what to do next?
