Kemper needs to update

  • I totally agree. First thing I’ve noticed about Kemper is that it has that quality of a tool created by engineers.

    Now, all these tools are created by engineers but in this case the engineer also runs the business.

  • Dual amps can sound good but it's not vital and it can be already done, while profiling at least.
    Dual cabs/mics for stereo is a different world: currently you can get a stereo sound with the various delay modes, but all of them have their problems especially when it comes to mono compatibility. I wish at least the Kemper editor offered a way to have proper mic simulation and panning, so you could get a true stereo with perfect phase between mics L/R. Something like the Universal Audio OX.
    A stereo cab into the Kemper would be best!

  • I was concerned at first saving all these backups, presets and rigs would take up a bunch of space then I saw how small they were. Very impressive and well thought out. I heard it was done using MIDI language but I would still think it would have to be a bigger file to hold all the parameters and such. I love that about the Kemper.

    One rig is about 6KiB, let's assume that 2KiB is wasted on framing metadata (MIDI headers), profile name, amp name, etc. This gives you 4KiB of data - this allows to encode 1000 parameters with float32 resolution (and I suspect many if not majority parameters don't require float32 but will be just fine with smaller numbers). They may be also applying compression. You can pack a lot information into 4KiB (see demo scene:…ar=2011&cat=best-4k-intro) :-)
