Delay when changing presets on remote

  • Greetings fellow Kempers!


    Im quite new to this Kemper family and i found out that when changing from one preset to another on my kemper remote there is a delay time before the new preset changes and applies. That can't be normal, can it? It might be 0,4sec or less to the next preset changes, and when perfoming live thats not a good thing.


    Is this normal or do anyone have any feedback on how this might be fixed?


    Hope you all have a good weekend.


    Best regards,

  • I use a midi controller (Midi Mongoose) and there is either no or an imperceptible amount of delay when switching presets. Not exactly the same situation though, since you are using the Remote.

  • Welcome Alex!

    In performance mode switching should be gapless.

    That's what it was made for.

  • But are you changing sounds within one performance, or between different performances?

  • Yeah it's weird. Do you by any chance have a video of it happening?

  • Please note that while the LEDs and the screen on the Remote take a split second to update when switching between Performance slots, the audio changes immediately (less than 4 ms). You can test this by recording in your DAW; record the direct out of the KPA alongside a microphone picking up the click of the switch.

  • that’s a very good point that Sam is making. I remember thinking that there was a significant delay but I wasn’t hearing it so I couldn’t work out what was going on. It turned out that I was looking at the remote when changing rigs and the screen wasn’t updating immediately even though the sound was. Psychologically I assumed there was a delay because my eyes trump my ears in terms of credibility.
