I've been a KPA convert for quite some time, having wanted to downsize my rig for gigs.
The issue I'd like some help with is a noticeable jump in volume when switching 'patches' in performance mode.
It lasts for maybe 0.5/1 sec and then the volume drops back to where it sits nicely between the other patches, but it's a very noticeable issue and it doesn't seem to matter how long I wait between switching patches I still get the issue.
I have a FS-6 footswitch pedal, but I am also getting this issue with using the page or rig buttons on the front of my KPA Power Rack
Performance looks like this:
Clean slot 1, Dirty 2, Lead 3, Heavier copy of 2, Empty slot.
I've set up a Performance using profiles my engineer took for us when tracking our recent EP, but I've also set up a separate performance to try other profiles another friend did some time ago and am having the same issue there too.
Note, the second performance is effectively the same set up as the first, only difference is the profiles are of different amps and done by different people.
I've also tried some of the stock / example Performances using the stock profiles and after a very short test on those didn't seem to be getting the issue, but need to spend more time investigating this with those stock patches to make sure they definitely aren't getting the issue as well
I've just updated the RM and KPA to the most recent versions and still getting the issue, for completeness sake:
It seems to happen less frequently when I move from R to L in my performance (but still happens a lot), but almost every time when moving L to R.
I'm also noticing some occasions where my FS-6 pedal is being pressed and getting no reaction from KPA at all - this is a separate issue I suspect.
Full disclosure, I broke my KPA last year (because I was an idiot), burning out the Output board and had to send off for a repair, the guys over at KPA HQ replaced one of the boards inside to fix the issue (thank god!)
My signal chain is as follows:
GTR to Shure Wireless on pedalboard, only using the Boss NS2 as I have dirty power at home and Cry Baby mini, not using any other pedals (haven't sorted the board yet to remove them) so am just sending a THROUGH signal to Front Input
I have the Mono Loop enabled to use my FX pedals for delay and verb - have set some patches up with specific effects in and disabled the Loop for those patches - so my send return runs through the rockboard patch bay into KPA
I have the Footswitch in slot 1 - Note I am still getting this issue when using the soft buttons on the front of KPA too.
I've been through all my Input settings: Clean sense -2.5db across the board, Dist Sense 0db, basically all others seem to be at default
Output settings, have everything set to Master out either stereo or mono
I'm listening through headphones so am not running KPA into any other gear at the moment.
Does anyone have any potential solutions for this volume spike?
