Rig does not return to default value when switching rigs in performance mode

  • Hi all,

    I'm kinda new to this forum, so my apologies if I posted this in the wrong topic.

    I recently bought a Kemper powered amp and Kemper footswitch and am now working on creating performances for each song of my setlists.

    I use different rigs in a performance for the intro, verse, chorus,...

    In some cases, I have additional effects stored in the effect footswitches. For example: the verse starts without delay, and for the last part of the verse I enable the delay with a footswitch before switching to the chorus rig in the performance. When returning back to the verse rig, the delay is still activated. This is not how I stored the rig in the performance: by default the delay is inactive.

    When I switch back and forth to another performance, the delay is inactive just like I created and stored the rig. But as long as I am switching rigs in the same performance, the changes I make with the effect footswitches seem to be stored when I switch back and forth between rigs.

    As far as I can see in the manual and this forum, the default value of a rig is loaded when you switch to that rig in performance mode. Is there a setting that I am overlooking ? I updated to the latest version of the Kemper software,...



  • Is your Profiler connected to the Rig Manager when you experience this behavior? In that case the Profiler is in edit mode and will preserve any changes until you load a different performance. Disconnect it from the computer and the Remote will recall the stored versions of the slots.

  • From Main Manual 7.5:

    • While navigating Slots within a Performance via the PAGE buttons of the PROFILER Stage, or the left and right RIG navigation cross buttons of the other PROFILER variants, any modifications (e.g. loading another Rig, or cranking up Gain) are interpreted as editing, and will be retained until you move to another Performance. Don’t forget to store before you load another Performance, if you want to make those modifications permanent.
    • As soon as you load another Slot from your foot controller, or foot buttons of the PROFILER Remote or Stage, any former modifications within that Performance are interpreted as temporary tweaks during a live performance and will be discarded immediately. If, for example, you had activated a booster in module B, or increased Delay Mix via pedal, any such changes will be lost if you switch Slots remotely. This way, you can always be sure that Slots will be loaded in their original, predictable state during live performances.
    • However, there is an exception to this practice: While Rig Manager is connected, any modifications are interpreted as editing and maintained during Slot changes as long as you stay within the same Performance.
  • Hi guys,

    Many thanks for the feedback. My Kemper was indeed connected to Rig Manager when I was playing, as I was making some tweaks to the performances. I completely overlooked this in the manual :pinch:
